Israeli Martyrs of Fight for Independence
Remembered in Jerusalem Hall of Heroism

From Israel Digest =

JERUSALEM — In the
center of Jerusalem, be-
tween Zion Square and the
Old City, is an area known
as the Russian Compound.
Tucked behind the police
station, almost hidden from
the street, is a former pil-
grims' hostel. Most of the
building is a warehouse, but
in one corner there is a gate
with a modest sign leading
to the Hall of Heroism.
During the British Man-
date, the building was the
central prison for southern
Palestine.
During the last 10 years
of the Mandate, even the
most basic rights of Brit-
ain's Jewish subjects in
Palestine were repressed.
As a result, the prison filled
up with Jews intent on
building a state.

Hupa Required at Wedding Rite

A Jewish wedding cere-
mony requires a hupa
(carxopy).
A number of reasons are
offered. To some, it is sym-
bolic of the union that will
be acquired when the couple
will be ushered into a pri-
vate room together
(Yichud). This latter act
will consummate the mar-
riage.
Others claim that it is a
sign of togetherness show-
ing that they will hence-
forth be living under the
same roof. It is also claimed
that this is one of the sym-
bols that remind the couple
that their union is similar to
the union of the Almighty
and the Jewish people at
Sinai.
In the latter case, the
mountain was lifted over
their heads to indicate the
seriousness of the mutual
responsibility that would
henceforth exist between
the people and the Al-
mighty. The hula, then,
likewise displays the seri-
ousness of the resopnsibility

A teacher will look for
what is good in the student
and help him to build on the
positive growth factors.
