home here. He observed,
however, that there is still
anti-Jewish feeling in Ger-
many and it would be mis-
taken to believe that prob-
lems between Germans and
Jews would resolve them-
selves with the passage of
Sepaking in Hamburg,
Nachmann said there was
greater understanding
shown toward Jews and
Judaism by German youths
who studied the Nazi era
thoroughly than among
those who did not. He urged
schools, public organiza-
tions and the media to deal
extensively with the hor-
rors of the past in order to
prevent their recurrence.
Nachmann referred to re-
cent incidents which dis-
turbed the Jewish commu-
nity. In one, journalists ex-
pressed anti-Jewish views
in a Radio Bremen broad-
cast. The other was a
demonstration by Turkish
workers in Berlin where
signs were carried with the
slogan "Kill the Jews."

Passover Charity


(Copyright 1980, JTA, Inc.)

"Mo'os Hitim" is the cur-
rent name for the practice of
providing the poor with the
means of having matzos.
This is done by giving them
money to buy it, flour to
bake it or the ready made
matzos to eat.
It is an old custom which
is already mentioned in the
Talmud. Some sources call
this practice "Kimkha
d'Piskha" which means
"flour for Passover.
Even though charity is
required of every Jew for
the preparations for every
holiday, the rabbis made a
special requirement for the
preparation of Passover.
The reason is that the
Passover requires a Jew to
have extra expense since he
cannot use the food and
bread which he may have
left from the days preceding
Passover. He thus needs a
new supply of food or
sources of food to prepare
the Passover meals.
