Mourning and the Festivals

By RABBI SAMUEL FOX
(Copyright 1978, JTA, Inc.)
A major Jewish festival
cancels out the remainder of
the seven-day (Shiva) or
30-day (Shloshim) mourn-
ing period because the
commandment in the Bible
(Deuteronomy 16:14) which
orders every Jew and the
Jewish community as a
whole to "rejoice" with the
festival.
It is obviously impossible
to both mourn and rejoice at
the same time. Since the
commandment to mourn re-
lates only to the individual
while the commandment to
rejoice is a community re-
sponsibility, the order to re-

allow his emotional con-
cerns to run away with
him to the extent that he
loses contact with his re-
sponsibility in - pei-form-
ing required Jewish
commandments.
Public observance of the
seven-day mourning period
is forbiddenon the Sabbath
because of Proverbs 10:22
which states, "It is the bles-
sing of the Almighty which
maketh rich, and sadness
addeth nothing thereto."
The "blessing of the Al-
mighty" is interpreted to
mean the Sabbath, while
"sadness" obviously refers
to mourning. The inference
amounts to the understand-
ing that nothing should in-
terfere with the public bles-
sed atmosphere of the Sab-
bath.
Mourning in public would
indeed detract from the
open blessed atmosphere of
the Sabbath. The private
aspects of mourning still
continue on the Sabbath. It
is therefore that the Sab-
bath does not cancel out the
remainder of. the Shiva
period in contrast to a major
festival which does cancel
out the remainder of the
Shiva observance.

The resolution calls for
Bnai Brith to sponsor chap-
ters in the four-state area
for the recognition of Jewish
scholarships and Jewish
scholars.

The first chapter is
scheduled to be established
at Rutgers University this
fall.

scholarships. As chairman
of the Bar-Ilan scholarship
committee, Dr. Fill said
that a number of the uni-
versity students already
have been aided in pursuing
their advanced studies.
"The scholarships we
provide also have made it
possible for many students
to conduct research in basic
Jewish historic tasks as
well as in the sciences," Dr.
Fill said. "The scholarship
fund is an urgent need and
we hope that the annual
