1,250 Americans
Seek Sinai Posts

Jewish Museum
to Be Renovated

NEW YORK — Nearly
1,250 Americans have indi-
cated they are interested in
serving on the task force
that will monitor surveil-
lance systems in the Sinai.
Two hundred people will be
needed for the task force.

The State Department
reports between 20 and 30
calls a day for information
on applications.

Congress approved the
creation of the Sinai civilian
task force as part of the re-
cent interim agreement be-
tween Israel and Egypt.
Both countries insisted that
Americans operate the mon-
itoring stations.

BONN—What is probably
the oldest Jewish museum
in the world is to be reno-
vated in Brunswick, Ger-
many. It was first estab-
lished in the 18th Century.
Its most valuable exhibit,
the interior of the only re-
maining timber synagogue
in Germany, is being reno-
vated by the Landesmu-
seum fur Geschichte and
Volkskunde in Brunswick.
The synagogue, which
was built in 1766 and stood
on a site in Homburg in the
district of Wolfenbuttel,
was taken down in 1923 and
the remaining parts incor-
porated in the Jewish Mu-
seum which continued to ex-
ist as a department of the
present Landesmuseum in
Brunswick, also after 1933.

LONDON — The London
Jewish Chronicle reported
that at least two Jews, in-
cluding the sexton of one of
the main synagogues, have
been killed during the latest
outbreak of fighting in Bei-
rut, Lebanon.
In a telephone report
from Beirut, a Lebanese
Jew reported at the time
that half of Beirut's Jewisl
quarter was being occupie,
by the Palestinians and the_
other half by Christian
Phalangists.
The two men were caught
in a cross-fire at the syn-
agogue, and both sides
called a cease fire and sent
food to the Jews.

Israelites

About 3,200 years ago,
those Israelites who had
gone down to Egypt to seek
pasture when drought and
famine struck Canaan re-
turned under the leadership
of their inspired lawgiver
Moses and their great cap-
tain Joshua. They were reu-
nited with their brethren
who had stayed on in the
land.

Judaism Forbids Suicide

CATERING

BY RABBI SAMUEL J. FOX

(Copyright 1975, JTA, Inc.)

Suicide is forbidden in
Jewish law. Generally
speaking, one who commits
suicide denies the authority-
Seating Up to 400
of the Almighty, who is the
ultimate owner of both
man's body and his soul.
The Talmud (Baba Kama
91:B) interprets the verse in
Genesis (9:5) Which states "I
will seek a reckoning for

the Almighty will seek a
reckoning from any man
who spills his own blood.
If the general rule of Ju-
daism is to value life, this
requirement includes valu-
ing one's own life. A person
who does not value his own
life would have little regard
for anyone else's life or life
in general.

A question is raised by
some as to why martyrdom
would be allowed whereas
suicide would be prohi-
bited. They answer this by
explaining that martyr-
dom is something which is
in conformity with God's
will because it spares the
desecration of His major
commandments.

Suicide, on the other
hand, is not an act in con-
formity with God's will.
Martyrdom is an act of gen-
erosity where one offers his
life under certain circumst-
ances for the Divine pur-
pose.
Suicide, in contrast, is a
selfish act violating man's
commitment to life which
was prescribed by the Al-
mighty. A genuine suicide,
if it can be proven to be gen-
uine, would strip the de-
ceased from his rights of
eulogy and mourning.
However, consideration is
usually given by the rabbis
to the understanding that
however commits suicide is
mentally disabled. Thus, he
might be considered as act-
ing under the compulsion of
forces which overcome him
and make him irresponsible
for his actions.

It is, for that reason,
therefore, that suicide vic-
tims are given proper bur-
ial and are mourned ac-
cording to Jewish Law.

A contemporary problem
in this area is that of those
who direct that their lives
not be spared in the case of
incurable illness. Generally,
Jewish law would be against
such practice as a phase of
suicide.
