It is a great tribute to an
artist to say that he plays
Beethoven or Bach and puts
nothing between them and
the audience. But in so
doing he becomes one with
the composer and the lis-
tener. In the listener's
memory he anonymously
shares the composer's im-
mortality. The teacher, too,
is remembered who is thus
forgotten. He lives in what
has happened in the minds
of his students, and of what
they remember of things in-
finitely greater than them-
selves or than himself.

The 18 (really 19) prayer
benedictions are not re-
peated by the leaders of the
evening prayer as they are
by the leader of the morning
and afternoon prayers.
According to the prevail-
ing opinion which contends
that the daily prayer ses-
sions correspond to the reg-
ular daily sacrifice rituals
in the Temple of Jeruslaem,
there should only be two
obligatory prayer sessions
daily — morning and after-
noon — since there were
only two daily sacrifice ses-
sions in the Temple.
The third session was
added in prayer because the
sacrificial organs were still
afire on the altar at night.
However, this was not an
adequate basis for consider-
ing the evening prayer ses-
sion as obligatory as the
morning and afternoon ses-
sion.
To reflect this difference,
the leader of the prayer ses-
sion in the evening does not
repeat the 19 benedictions
even though the congrega-
tion and individuals ac-
cepted the requirement to
recite them.
Generally, in Jewish
practice, it was required
that there be some specific
indication to tell the dif-
ference between a required
act and one that was ac-
cepted as required although
originally considered op-
tional.
