No Idle Worship at Calif. Minyan Held in a Bank

By GILA BERKOWITZ

(Copyright 1980, JTA, Inc.

The couple oh their way to
the early Saturday matinee
saw some traffic at the
Fidelity Savings Bank in
Palo Alto, Calif. "Looks like
they've got expanded hours,
dear. Why don't we go in
and deposit that check."
But as they approached
the bank they were sur-
prised to see a most uncom-
mercial tableau. The potted
palm was tucked behind an
Ark of the Law, the
standards proclaiming this
week's _treasury bill rates
were draped with a flowered
mechitza, and loan officers'
chairs were placed side-by-
side with the chairs of loan
applicants. Some 70 persons
were gathered for the Stan-
ford Hillel Orthodox serv-
ice, popularly known as the
bank minyan.
Five years ago a group of

Stanford students who had
been conducting a "float-
ing" service in various
homes. joined forces with
local Jews. They ap-
proached Fidelity with a re-
quest for the use of the
bank's community room on
Saturdays. The minyan
grew out of that room, tak-
ing up all of the available
floor space, and in fact, has
had to move the locale of its
post-service kidush to the
Glendale Federal Bank
next door. Friday night
services were also insti-
tuted this year.
Anyone who shows up
three weeks in a row is
pretty much acknowl-
edged as a member. Any-
one who attends at any
time has to move some
furniture around, and
such participation itself
encourages a sense of be-
longing.
Students, singles and
young couples predominate
in the minyan, giving it an
energetic aura. Stanford
professors and Israeli

graduate students also lend
flavor. A majority of the
congregants are newcomers
to traditional Judaism, ask-
ing the tough questions of
religion, demanding intel-
lectual and emotional satis-
faction after long odysseys
in many Jewish corn-
munities.
The woman's role in the
Orthodox synagogue has
presented a special chal-
lenge. The sexes are seated
separately during services
and women are not called up
to the Torah. Yet pains are
taken to arrange the seat-
ing so that the service is
equally visible and audible
to both men and women.
Women also take advantage
of free access to the pulpit
and often deliver the. ser-
mon.
The social highlight of
the service is the kidush,
where good-natured
banter is exchanged over
good food.
Questions requiring an
authoritative opinion are

JERUSALEM — From
now on the Israeli monetary
unit will no longer be called
the lira or the pound like its
Italian and English sisters.
In 5741, the shekel, an an-
cient biblical term, will be-
come Israel's official cur-
rency.
An ancient monetary
unit, it is with shekels that
the patriarch Abraham
bought the cave of the
Machpelah at Hebron,
where he is buried, along
with Sarah, Isaac, Jacob,
Rebecca and Leah. Moses
used shekels to take a cen-
sus of the Israelites in the
desert.

sending their contribution
of half-a-shekel to the Tem-
ple. During the war be-
tvveen the Romans and the
Jews (66-70 CE), money was
minted as a sign of political
independence, and once
again it was the shekel.
Ratified by a decree of
the Knesset in 1979, the
shekel has been legal
tender since Feb. 24, 1980,
with a transition period
of three months to allow
the replacement of all
coins and notes.
A shekel is equal to ten
lirot. Every shekel will be
divided into 100 agurot.
Notes of 1, 5, 10 and 50
shekels will be in circula-
tion, and coins of 1, 5, 10 and
50 agurot.

Others contend that the
circular shape would signify
the omnipresence of the
Almighty who would there-

The hallot on Rosh
Hashana are made in a
round form unlike the hal-
lot of the rest of the year
which are elongated.
Some consider this dif-
ference in shape to be a
symbol of continuity and
eternity like the line of the
continuous circle.
The implication would be
that this is a wish and a
symbol for continuity into
the coming year which
would indicate a continued
life instead of the end of a
