THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Israel Marks High Holidays Calmly

At sunset Sept. 5, the vast
majority of America's more
than six million Jews will
begin religious observances
to mark the arrival of the
year 5736 of the Jewish cal-
endar.
The Jewish New Year
(Rosh Hashana) together
with the Day of Atonement
(Yom Kippur), which begins
at sundown Sept. 14, are the
two most solemn holy days
of the Jewish year, and even
usually non-observant Jews

return to the synagogues for
a period of prayernd feast-
ing.
Except for those cities
with overwhelmingly large
Jewish communities, life in
America on Rosh Hashana
and Yom Kippur proceeds
much along everyday lines.
It is quite different in Is-
rael, however, where these
and other festivals take on a
public character.
Offices, stores, facto-
ries, and many restau-

rants are closed and, says
Encyclopaedia Judaica,
"there is a virtual stand-
still of labor and trade"
accompanied by a "per-
vading atmosphere of calm
and repose."
Bus transportation is
mostly suspended, no trains
run, harbors and airports
tre inoperative, government
offices and places of amuse-
ment are closed.
On the Day of Atone-
ment, broadcasting- stops

NEw YORK — The Jew-
ish Theological Seminary of
America and Hofstra Univ-
ersity have announced an
extensive cooperative educa-
tional program to start in
September at Hofstra's
campus in Hempstead, N.Y.

The program is designed
to add to the university's

programs in continuing edu-
cation and to enrich Hof-
stra's undergraduate pro-
gram in Judaica studies. It
will also enable the semi-
nary to make its scholarly
resources more widely avail-
able to residents of the met-
ropolitan area — the world's
largest center of Jewish
population.

and there is virtually no ve-
hicle to be seen in the
streets, although vital pub-
lic services such as utilities,
telephone service, police and
fire protection are available.
For the ultra-religious,
this is justified by the prin-
ciple of pikkua nefesh or
"the saving of human life"
although the Judaica re-
ports that one extreme reli-
gious group does not take
advantage of this provision
for non-urgent purposes. In
the fields and on farms au-
tomatic irrigation systems
and milking machines take
over in performing work
forbidden to observant Jews
on the Sabbath and the
High Holy Days.
Religious observance
presents a particularly
great problem in Israel's
armed forces. Hence, the
Chief Chaplaincy of the
Israel Defense Forces has
laid down a set of standing
orders which take into
consideration both mili-
tary and religious needs.
For example: leave time is
so timed that no soldier
need travel on his way to or
from duty on a holy day.
And, "on Rosh Hashana
those in positions near the
enemy lines are exempt
from the injunction to listen
to the sound of the shofar if
there is a danger that the
enemy may hear it too."
In the event of actual
fighting on the Day of
Atonement., a soldier in bat-
tle must break his fast as
soon as he feels that hunger
is affecting his fighting ca-
pacity.
