Vaad Issues Holiday Guide

The Vaad Harabonim-
Council of Orthodox Rabbis
of Greater Detroit—has is-
sued a guide for the High
Holy Days. Among the
points contained therein,
are:
• Tashlich: On the first
day of Rosh Hashana (or
the second if the first day
occurs on Shabat) it is cus-
tomary to walk along the
banks of the river or the
seashore in order to reflect
on the purifying effect that
water has on the body and
to be remembered that
even as the body is purified
by water, so can the soul be
purified by repentance and
by a sincere appeal to the
help of God. A passage
from the prophet Micah is
recited and the custom de-
rives its name from the
opening passage : "And
Thou shalt cast all their
sins into the depths of the
sea."
• Kaporos : This custom is
utilized to impress the Jew
with the thought that even
if because of his sins he
feels that he deserves a pun-
ishment at the hand of God,
yet by virtue of his sincere
repentance the Lord, in His
infinite mercy and good-
ness, is ready to forgive
him and grant him life. The
ceremony consists of twirl-
ing the fowl around the
head three times after the

recitation of appropriate
biblical passages; then,
saying "This fowl is my
atonement; it shall go to its
death but I shall go to a
long life of goodness."
Many people use money in-
stead of a fowl and give
that money to charity.
• Hoshana Raba: Accord-
ing to tradition the final
seal of the decree for the
New Year is proclaimed on
this day. Another opportu-
nity is thus offered to those
who did not take full advan-
tage of the High Holy Days.
High point of this service is
the beating of the willow
branches which follows the
ceremony of encircling the
synagogue seven times with
the lulav and etrog.
• Shemini Atzeret: On
this day the Tefila Geshem
prayer for rain, is recited.
Since the fall and winter
are the rainy seasons in Is-
rael, we pray for the bless-
ings of a full measure of
rain, so vital to the life of
the land. Shemini Atzeret,
also is one of the four days
of the year on which the
Yizkor is recited.
• The Four Species: To ob-
serve Sukkot, the holiday of
harvest and thanksgiving,
the Bible enjoins us to take
the "Fruit of a goodly tree,
branches of a palm tree,
boughs of thick trees and
willows of the brook."
• Na'anuim: Refers to the
waving of the species when
they are all held together.
They are waved in all direc-
tions to show that God, who
is the source of all bless-
ings, is present above and
below, in the North, South,
East and West.

Budapest Jewry Lacks Funds

BUDAPEST (JTA)—The
Budapest Jewish commu-
nity is faced with a serious
financial deficit which
could jeopordize its commu-
nal services.
The community's Presi-
dent, Imre Heber, said that
while expenses have soared
because of rising prices,
the community's income
has remained unchanged.
The community operated 30
synagogues, a kosher res-
taurant, a school, a commu-
nal center and a home for
the aged.
Heber called upon all
community members to in-
crease their contributions
to the community fund.
The president of the Or-
thodox community, Herman

Fixler, who attended the
meeting, launched a similar
appeal. He said that Hun-
garian Jewry "will over-
come all difficulties" and
continue operating all its
services.
