1945 Arab Pogrom in Cairo
`No Minor Jewish Incident'

An early prejudicial oc-
currence in Cairo, involving
anti-Jewish Egyptian riots
in 1945, is exposed in a letter
to the Washington Post by
David Diamond.

In my extensive research
into the modern history of
Jews in Egypt, I have discov-
ered that the 1945 riots were
not a "minor incident" at
all. The riots took place on
Nov. 2, the anniversary of

Place of Music in Temple Debated

Jewish liturgical experts
attending a Reform-spon-
sored conference on the
music of the American syn-
agogue were told that the
use of rock and guitar music
and other "gimmicks" in re-
ligious services may stimu-
late attendance but will not
help Reform Jews achieve
an understanding of prayer
or develop a meaningful
worship experience.
Rabbis, cantors, music
specialists and congrega-
tional representatives at the
three-day conference, spon-
sored by the New York
school of the Hebrew Union
College-Jewish Institute of
Religion, the Reform semi-
nary, also heard reports
about the search conducted
among the 715 Reform syn-
agbgues in the United
States an Canada to help
.congregants "understand
and appreciate prayer."
Music was described as an _
essential bridge to create
the proper mood, personal


identification and feeling
among worshippers.
Bonim Shur, director of
liturgical_music in the semi-
nary's Cincinnati school,
said the use of rock or guitar
music in liturgy, was "a
trrcky business." He con-
tended it was not possible to
"transplant" the "song-
leader style" used in camps
to the synagogue where a
parallel intimacy did not
exist. He also argued that
rock was a representation of
the "anger of the younger
generation" seeking to de-
stroy the establishment,
whether it was "the syn-
agogue or value systemS."
How ever, he said, he used
rock rhythms and moods in
music he wrote for the syn-
agogue because "we hear it
every day on our radios and
cannot avoid such sounds
which have become part of
our lifestyle."
