Shofar Blowing and Cemetery Visit are Among Rosh Hashana Preparations

Visiting the cemetery im-
presses him with the fact
that a person is limited in
his span of life as he is in
his abilities and powers. It
also teaches him that life is
comparatively short and
that there is a greater
power than man who holds
the life of every individual
in His hand.
According to another line
of thought the visit to the
cemetery is to ask the de-
ceased to pray for us from
his heavenly abode. In a
time of crisis one seeks
every available means of
help.
While his own record
may not be sufficient in
granting him help, the vir-

in his community may
come to his aid by appeal-
ing to the Almighty for his
well being.
Some even inject a third
line of reasoning which
states that even the dead
pass through some kind of
judgement and one is there-
fore praying for the dead in
his visit to the cemetery.
The shofar is sounded
every weekday of the
month before Rosh Hash-
ana to arouse the con-
science of the people so
that they may repent their
wrongdoings before the

High Holy Days.
It is also reminiscent of
the shofar which was blown
when Moses went up to
Mount Sinai to receive the
Ten Commandments which
occurred the second time
during this month. He also
appealed to the Almighty
for the forgiveness of his
people during this month.
The reason it is not blown
on the day before Rosh
Hashana is to distinguish be-
tween the custom of blow-
ing the shofar before Rosh
Hashana and the biblical re-
quirement to blow it on the

day of Rosh Hashana.
The former is a custom
while the latter is a biblical
commandment for another
reason.

Italian-Israel
Bank BombTarget

PARIS (JTA)—A small
bomb exploded Monday
night outside the Italian-Is-
rael Bank in Milan. The ex-
plosion, which caused no
casualties, shattered win-
dows and damaged a car
parked near the bank.
The Milan police said the
explosion might have been
the work of right-wing sym-
pathizers of Nazi war crimi-
nal Herbert Kappler who re-
cently escaped to West Ger-
many from a prison hospi-
tal in Rome.

than the Iranian national av-
erage.
The only problem, accord-
ing to the delegation, is that
communication with other
Jewish communities is lack-
ing. It is for this reason as
well that American Jews
are being urged to visit
Iran.

Iranian Jews Visiting U.S.
Deny Maltreatment by Shah

NEW YORK (JTA)—
Three leaders of the Ira-
nian Jewish community are
touring the country in order
to acquaint American
Jewry with the facts about
"the most ancient Jewish
community in the Dia-
spora."
The delegation consists of
Mrs. Shamsi Hekmat, presi-
dent of the Iranian Jewish
Women's Organization;
Moussa Kermanian, secre-
tary of the Iranian Jewish
community; and Prof. I.
LaLazari, chairman of the
department of pharma-
cology at the University of
Teheran. The delegation
was hosted in New York by
American Sephardi Feder-
ation (ASF) president Li-
liane Winn and members of
New York's Iranian Jewish
community at ASF head-
quarters.
According to Kermanian,
the 2,500-year-old Iranian
Jewish community—which
numbers 80,000—"is now ex-
periencing an era of free-
dotn and prosperity unprece-
dented since Cyrus the
Great." Cyrus was the king
of Persia mentioned in the
Book of Daniel who granted
total liberty and freedom of
practice to the ancient Per-
sian Jewish Diaspora.
"Jews in Iran," be said,
"represent a social elite
which is integrally involved
in every sector of the econo-
my and academia. No
doors are closed to Jews."
The delegation reported
that the 50,000-member
Teheran Jewish community
is highly developed and or-
ganized. There are more
than 20,000 young Jews en-
rolled in various levels of
the educational system and
the percentage of Jews in
universities is even higher
