JERUSALEM — The
town of Modi'in now in-
cludes a group of religious
young immigrants, primar-
ily from America.
They set up a Moshav in
1974, and after initial diffi-
culties, the members are

making substantial head-
way.
According to The Jerusa-
lem Post, manpower has
been the serious problem.
Out of an original group of
60 who had expressed inter-
est in setting up a rnoshav,
only four families made
their way to Israel and three
soon abandoned the idea.

After ads were placed in
The Jerusalem Post, how-
ever, four more families
joined the rnoshav, and
requests to join continue to
come.

The urban origin of most
of the settlers and the rocky
barrenness of much of the
soil in the Modi'in area has
led the members to explore

other ways of making a liv-
ing.
One settler suggested es-
tablishing a vacation resort
for the religious. The area
also holds considerable his-
toric interest as the site of
the Maccahean graves,
about a half mile up the
road from the moshay.

Another possibility
being considered by mem-
bers is that of establishing
a yeshiva. But settlers are
turning to more prosaic
means for hard cash.

Recently the group
opened a factory on the
rnoshav to manufacture
plastic bags. Once the initial
costs are covered, a steady
revenue is expected.

The 36 Pious Men

By RABBI SAMUEL FOX
(Copyright 1975, JTA, Inc.)

There is a tradition which
claims that there are al-
ways, in every generation,
36 pious men who sustain
the world.

The Bible mentions the
supposition that righteous
men are the foundation of
the world (Prow. 10:25). The
Talmud sometimes men-
tions that every generation
has 30 men comparable to

Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
The Almighty is said to have
promised Abraham that
there would always be such
a number of men in the
world.
The first to introduce
the number 36 was a 4th
Century rabbi who wrote
in the Talmud: "The
world is never without 36,
the Divine Presence." The
rabbi derives this from a
computation of the He-
brew word "him" which
refers to the Almighty in
the verse "Happy are they
that hope in Him." (Is.

30:18).

The German hasidic-
mystic movement of the
13th Century gave rise to
the belief that there are
these 36 men whose deeds
and whose identity is ob-
scured so that the whole
concept receives somewhat
of an esoteric character.
Generally speaking, the
tradition serves as a matter
of encouraging the feeling of
modesty and reserve —
pointing to the fact that,
indeed, the 36 greatest men

in the world are mysteri-
ously hidden and that their
piety is not a matter of pub-
lic display.
