Shavuot Rites

Yaacov Agam Designed Windows
for Seminary's Synagogue

NEW YORK — Four
stained-glass •windows de-
signed by Yaacov Agam, a
pioneer in the "kinetic art"
movement, were dedicated
recently in the Minnie Pet-
rie Synagogue of Hebrew
Union College-Jewish In-
stitute of Religion here.

Each window is divided
into a series of individual
panels, with 12 of the panels
representing the 12 tribes of
Israel. The kinetic nature of
the design creates the illu-
sion of changing shape and
color as the viewer moves
past each window.

It is customary to deco-
rate the synagogue with
vegetation for the Shavuot
holiday.
Some put branches of
trees around the ark and the
platform of the synagogue.
Others even put small trees
there. Some claim that this
is done as a reminder that
when the Torah was given
at Mount Sinai; the, bare
mountain was suddenly
covered with greens and
vegetation.
Since Shavuot is the an-
niversary of the Revelation
at Mount Sinai, the scene is
recalled by the establish-
ment of greens in the
synagogue for that day.
Others claim that this cus-
tom is a reminder that in
the days of the temple in
Jerusalem the first fruits
were brought to the temple
and they were decorated
with greens and flowers.
It is also customary to
eat dairy foods and
honey on Shavuot.
It is claimed that when
the Revelation took place
the Torah was compared to
milk and honey. It is also
claimed that the reason for-
having dairy at some of the
meals of the holiday while
meat is eaten at other meals
is because it serves as a re-
minder of the two loaves
that were brought to the
temple as an offering on the
Shavuot holiday; one as a
bread for meat meals and
one for dairy meals (Rama).

U.S. Charges
Eichmann Aide

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The Justice Department is
seeking to strip a German-
born, California resident of
U.S. citizenship for having
concealed his membership
in the Nazi Party and the
Gestapo. The department
charged last week that Otto
Albrecht Alfred von
Bolschwing, 72, who be-
came a U.S. citizen in 1952,
illegally obtained citizen-
ship by lying about his Nazi
activity.
In a complaint filed in
U.S. District Court in Sac-
ramento, the department
said Von Bolschwing, of
Carmichael, had worked
with Adolph Eichmann in
planning programs of per-
secution and forced immi-
gration of Jews. Eichmann
was captured by Israelis in
Argentina in 1960 and exe-
cuted in Israel in 1962 after
a long trial.
The Justice Department
charged that ,Von Bolschw-
ing was not a person of good
moral character because of
his participation "in the
Nazi policy of racial, reli-
gious and political persecu-
tion ... and because he pro-
cured his citizenship by con-
cealment of material facts."

Nazi Vandalism at Florida Campus

TAMPA, Fla. (JTA)
(JTA)-
The University of South
Florida campus was van-
dalized by anti-Semitic slo-
gans and swastikas in early
May.
According to the Jewish
Floridian, the swastikas
and Nazi slogans were
found chalked on a
blackboard and on the back
of chairs in the Business
School auditorium. USF
police believe that the inci-
dent was "minor" and unre-
lated to the 40 anti-Semitic
incidents which occured on
the campus and at the
homes of USF professors be-
tween 1977 and last year.
Joseph Busta, the uni-
versity's vice president
for public affairs, had de-
cided just a few days be-
fore the latest incident to
vacate a reward fund es-
tablished in 1979 to at-
tract tips on who the

might be, the Jewish
Floridian reported. He
said he has now decided
to abandon his proposal
to return the more than
$4,000 in the reward fund.

tikas, the slogans included,
"Sons of Hitler," and the
last names of several
famous Nazi leaders —

ler" slogan was used by an
anonymous caller when he
