Diversity of Merchants, Items Makes
Mebane Yehuda a Colorful Market.

New President

PHILADELPHIA — Ira
Silverman has been in-
stalled as president of the
Reconstructionist Rabbini-
cal College.

JERUSALEM — The
Mehane Yehuda market in
Jerusalem is a place with a
very special magic, a par-
ticular expression of the in-
gathering of the Jewish
people, according to a recent
article in Israel Scene Mag-
azine.
. Located on Jaffa Road,
near the central business
district, it was originally
called Shuk Halva'a
V'Hisahon after the com-
pany which arranged_ the •
financing for its construc-
tion. It was built in 1928 as
a complex of 120 shops and
its present name derives
from the quarter in which it
is located — -Mehane
Yehuda.
This quarter, along with
other adjoining ones, such
as Mizkeret Moshe and
Ohel Moshe, was estab-
lished in the 1880s as part of
the movement to set up new

Weak men, often, from
the very principle of their
weakness, derive a certain
susceptibility, delicacy, and
taste, which render them, in
these particulars, much
superior to men of stronger
and more consistent minds,
who laugh at them.

WE NOW CARRY A
COMPLETE LINE OF GROCERIES

After a while, you get to
know the people there: Re-
uven, of Iraqi descent, sells
pickled olives, peppers and
cucumbers and has de-
veloped a series of rapid-fire
hand movements for scoop-
ing up spoonfuls of olives
into plastic bags, adding
juice and twirling a rubber
band around the tops. It's all
done in the blink of an

eyelid.

Then there's the "colo-
nel," a gingerhaired, light-

skinned man with a mous- -
tache who looks like an ex-
British soldier who some-
how got left behind when
the British Army went
home in 1948. His stall,,
right in the center of the-
main walkway, creates a
jam of people on either side
and is always covered with a
vague assortment of
brightly colored clothes and
trinkets, although he rarely
makes a sale.
The calmest time is in the
early morning when the
vendors arrive, open their
stalls and arrange the fruit
and vegetables on racks:
Steaming glasses of Tur-
kish coffee are never far
away as they chatter
quietly among themselves
of the previous night's bas-
ketball game on TV or the
latest neighborhood gossip.

By mid-morning the
crowds are there iriforce,
the place is buzzing. Now

there-
no time for
small-talk. The vendors
shout out their wares and
prices as loudly as they
can. They weigh out veg-
etables on old-fashioned
scales, take money from
three people at a time,
scold the lady who insist:s-
on squeezing all the soft
tomatoes ... until 7 p.m.,
the pace is fast and furi-
ous.
On Friday, after having
made their final sales of the
week, the vendors begin
taking unsold stock back
into their storerooms and
closing them up for the
weekend, pulling down the
steel shutters and hurrying
off home.
By 5 p.m. the place is des-
erted. Only the cats are left
to scratch around among
the discarded scraps of veg-
etables. The people — the
life of the shuk — are at
home, welcoming the Sab-
bath to Jerusalem.

From the outset the in-
habitants were culturally
diverse — Sephardi -Jews
from Egypt, Yemen, Iraq
and other Arab coun-
tries, mixed with
Ashkenazi Jews from the
European countries — al-

usually homogeneous.
