Ninth of Av.
Indeed they do. This year,
more than 250,000 Jews
from all over the world are
expected to pray at the
Western Wall, said Rabbi
Meir Yehudah Getz, who is
in charge of the Western
Wall. Included are 40L
50,000 who are expected on
Monday night, when the
fast begins. On that night,
the Book of Lamentations
and Kinot -- prayer lamen-
tations — are recited.

The prayers recited at the
Wall are not fundamentally
different from those said in
other parts of the world,
Rabbi Getz noted, except for
regional variations in the
order of the prayers recited
by Ashkenazim, Sephar-
dim, Orientals, etc. The
prayers most widely used by
nearly all sects have been
written by Rabbi Yehuda
HaLevy (1085-1142).

A famous poet born in
Spain, he fulfilled a life-
long dream when he
traveled to then Palestine
via Egypt. Tradition has it
that when he reached the
Western Wall, he knelt and
prayed with fervor. Accord-
ing to this version, Muslim
horseman, seized with
anger at HaLevy's devotion,
trampled him to death
under his horse's hooves.

Sad Day in Jewish History Tisha b'Av

(Continued from Page 1)
Jerusalem, for the Scrip-
tures say: 'Rejoice ye
with Jerusalem and be
glad for joy with her, and
ye that mourn her.' " This
means that the value of
the Fast of Av lies not
only in remembering the
past and applying its les-
sons to the _present, but
also in recognizing the
unity of -our people, • the
continuity of its existence
and the destiny still
awaiting fulfillment.
To the Kabalists, the
ninth of Av represented the
nature of the world's incom-
pleteness and the great
need for the return of the
Holy Presence to Jerusalem
with the rebuilding of the
Temple. The Midrash (Lam.
Rab. 1) contains the sig-
nificant statement that
"The Messiah, the Saviour,
was born on the day the
Temple was destroyed."
The Fast of the Ninth of
Av is observed in Israel as it
is by religious Jews the
world over. The fast begins

at sundown. The book of
Lamentations ("Echah") is
read in synagogues in the
evening by the dim light of
candles, with the congrea-
tion sitting on the floor or on
low benches; and it is read
again the next morning.
Lamentations was writ-
ten by the prophet Jere-
miah, who witnessed the
destruction of the First
Temple, and there are five
chapters of vivid im-
pressions lamenting over
destroyed and desolate
Jerusalem, which he
blames on the sinfulness of
the people and their leaders.
Lamentations is read to
mournful, dirge-like tunes
— Yemenite tunes are
slightly different.
After Lamentations,
"Kinot," are read. They
are a collection of dirges
by Jewish poets of differ-
ent ages. One was com-
posed by Solomon Ibn
Gabirol in 11th Century
Spain. He presents
Samaria and Jerusalem
as two faithless sisters

Hurwitz Boasts His Economic
Policies Achieved Success

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Finance Minister. Yigal
Hurwitz presented data to
the Knesset purporting that
his economic policies have
achieved considerable suc-
cess.
He cited growing signs of
an economic slowdown
which cools inflation, a sub-
stantial decrease in imports
for the first time in Israel's
history and a 4alance of
payments deficit by the end
of 1980 of some IL 2.6 billion
which, he said was IL 600
million less than expected.
Ezra Sadan, director of
the Treasury's Economic
Planning Authority, re-
ported that the volume of
exports in the first six
months of this year reached
$2.7 billion compared to
$2.1 billion in the same
period last year. Exports
rose by 30 percent in the
month of June alone, ac-
cording to figures released
by the Central Bureau of
Statistics.
However, the Bank of
Israel has proposed sub-
stantial cuts in govern-
ment credit for experts as
part of the battle against
inflation.

and tells of the punish-
ment and exile of the
Tribes.
One of the best-known
"Kinot," read on the morn-
ing of Tisha b'Av, gives an
account of the 10 rabbis
martyred by the Roman
government — the pitiless
and inhuman death of such
giants as R. Ishmael the
High Priest, Rabbi Akiba,
Rabbi Judah etc., and of the
tortures and suffering these
great scholars received dur-
ing the last hours of their
lives. Yet, they died
sanctifying God's name and
His teachings.
Many "Kinot" connected
with events in eastern lands
are included in Kinah books
of the oriental communities.
The Yemenites have Kinot
unknown to the Sephardim.

disagreed. "There is no
other way, no other re-
sponse to our economic
problems but to increase our
exports," he said on a radio
interview today.
Meanwhile, the National
Manufacturers Association
released the results of a
survey which showed that
production and exports are
already decreasing and un-
employment is on the in-
crease.

That which thou dost not
