As in Psalms, 'With Loud-Sounding Cymbals'
Israel's Forces Gladly Mark Second Exodus
lir OW

They (laved the Hora and they sang as they crossed
the bridgehead from the west bank of the Suez Canal back
toward Israel. The Israeli armed forces which had, for
129 days, occupied 560 miles of Egyptian territory, car-
ried signs declaring "Shalom Africa," "Goodby Africa"
and "We Leave Egypt with Hope for Peace."
There was- an echo from Psalms, 150:5:
"Praise Him with the loud-sounding cymbals;
Praise Him with the clanging cymbals."
It was like the proclamation in Chronicles 23:8:
"And David and all Israel played before God with all
their might; even with songs,' and with harps, and with
psalteries, and with timbrels, and with cymbals, and with
The scene of departure, JTA correspondent Yitzhak,
&argil reports from the Suez Canal front, had a slight
carnival flavor. Tank crewmen threw colored smoke gre-
nades. Vehicle antennae became masts on which colorful
balloons, flags and even pieces of cloth fluttered in the
breeze. Soldiers were seen opening bottles of champagne,
mainly to produce noises, among a variety of makeshift
noise-makers. The long convoy came to a standstill when
the lead units reached the western end of the bridge and
found a parade in progress.
A crack brigade of paratroopers, the first Israelis to
cross the canal westward, heard their commander re-
count that event of 129 days ago and then tell them "we
fold our flag here with a desire and a hope for peace."
Lt. Eli Cohen, the first Israeli soldier to set foot on
the west side of the canal, was invited to lower a flag on
a mast. The soldiers then returned to their vehicles and
moved to the east side of the canal—all but one unit,
• members ended the Israeli presence on the west

Wanefsky's Bible Commentaries

Joseph Wanefsky, who
teaches contemporary issues
of Jewish law at Yeshiva
University, provides schol-
aHy commentaries on the
Torah and the holidays in
"From the Shadow of In-
sight," a Philosophical Li-
brary publication.
His previous work on the
life and works of Rabbi Isaac
Jacob Reines, the founder of
the M i z r a chi movement,
established the author's qual-
ifcations for scholarly re-
search. His current work en-
hances that authoritative
status for Torah knowledge.
"From the Shadow of In-
sight" deals with Genesis,
Exodus, Leviticus, Deuteron-
omy, Samuel and the con-
cluding chapter "On the Hol-
Wanefsky is thorough in his
basis analyses of the themes,
his delving into historic rec-
ords, and his emphasis on
the ethical teachings.
For example, in reviewing
the experiences of David, the
death of General Uriah so
that David could m a r r y
Bathsheba, and the trap cre-
ated for Bathsheba's hus-
band, Wanefsky writes about
David's "transgressions
against G-d." On this score
he defines the ethical codes

and he defers to the experi-
ence of Abraham, who had
become wealthy, yet was of-
fered a free parcel of land
for Sarah's burial by Ephron.
He rejected the offer, in or-
der to conform to rules
against special privilege.
David had been similarly
tempted by greed, later real-
izing "the error of acquiring
lustful pride."
The rule enunciated by
Wanefsky is: "Tile ambition
of greed and 'power is vain
and futile, it can only lead to
disintegration and depravity,
the soul is torn, the spirit is
splintered because of man's
vain, inane, mudane drive to
acquire power." .
It is in this spirit that the
author of this book outlines
the basic Jewish laws of a
higher nature. He even points
to a yielding to greed by
Solomon similar to that of his
father .David. Exposing the
evil in order to elevate the
just and the good, the Wanef-
sky commentaries will be

The pullout was completed on schedule Feb. 21, at noon,

Among the returning troops were men who had not
taken off their field uniforms for four months. Some had
dusty equipment, many had beards. All had the look of
soldiers proud of their accomplishments, both in smashing
through the Egyptian weak spot on the east bank in
October and in the withdrawal.
Israeli units now on the east bank will stay in their
positions until Tuesday when the final phase of disengage-
ment will be ended. Until then, Israeli liaison officers
will remain on the west bank at the tripartite command
post north of Fayid.
Israel returned 22 more Egyption POWs captured
during the war. The exchange took place at the United
Nations Kantara-Baloosa road checkpoint under the aus-
pices of the Red Cross. These POWs comprised several
scores. of Egyptian soldiers and officers that were cap-
tured or gave themselves up to Israeli forces after the
conclusion of the major POW exchange which followed
the cease fire.
