Name Change,
Rite for Ailing

By RABBI SAMUEL FOX

(Copyright 1978, JTA, Inc.)

Some Jews practice the
custom of changing the
name of a person who is
seriously ill or otherwise in
danger of losing his life.
When all means of
medication and scientific
endeavor seem to be of I ittle
or no avail, Jews turn their
attention to hewenly inter-
ference in the destiny of
man.
It is in the Talmud that
we find this jElea spelled out
when the rabbis there state
Rosh Hashana 16b( that a
change of one's name is one
of the four things that can
effect the evil decree that
may have been destined for
this person.
The background for
this thinking is derived
mainly from the biblical
account of a number of
people whose destiny
took a turn when their
names were changed.
Thus, Abram's name was
changed to Abraham and
Sarai's name was
changed to Sarah.
Jacob's name was
changed to Israel and
Hosea's name was
changed to Joshua.
The mystics added the
claim that the angel of de-
struction who was given the
license to harm or take the
life of an individual was as-
signed only to an individual
bearing such and such a
name. His destructive
power might become in-
operative against an indi-
vidual of another name.

Israel Aided
Saudis, Sadat

WASHINGTON —
Former U.S. Air Force intel-
ligence chief Gen. George
Keegan recently told a
strategic policy conference
that Israeli intelligence had
provided information to
prevent at least two assas-
sination attempts against
the royal family of Saudi
Arabia in the last 15 years,
and one and perhaps two at-
tempts against the life of
President Anwar Sadat of
Egypt.
