dish fluently:
On his return to Palestine
after the war, Herzog joined
Hagana, the pre-state
Jewish defense force for
which he undertobk major
assignments. He rose
rapidly. in the ranks of the
newly formed army of the
state of Israel and served as
its chief of military intelli-
gence from 1948 to 1950.
He returned to that post
10 years later for another
three year tour of duty. It
was Herzog who laid down
the patterns and practices of
Israeli military intelligence
which are operative today.
He also served in senior
command position on the
central and southern fronts
during the 1950s.
Herzog retired from the
army with the rank of gen-
eral to enter industry. He
became the Israeli repre-
sentative of Sir Isaac
Wolfson's Great Universal
Stores, a financial empire
with manifold commercial
and industrial ,interests in
Israel.
Beginning in the early
1970s, Herzog served as a
senior partner in a lead-
ing Tel Aviv law firm
while maintaining his
business ties. He served
on the boards of directors
of several leading banks
and industrial firms.
From 1975 to 1978 he was
Israel's Ambassador to the
United Nations.
Herzog has published
several books on Israel's
wars which became world-
wide best-sellers and an-
thologies of his speeches. .
Herzog has always found
time to involve himself in
public, non-political affairs.
He founded "Variety in Is-
rael" which raises money
and builds facilities for dis-
advantaged children. He is ,
president of the World ORT
(Organization for Rehabili-
tation Through Training)
and of ORT Israel.
As a politician, Herzog
was a diligent Knesset
member, striving to foster
links between the electorate
and their elected represen-
tatives in parliament. In his
home district, Herzliya, he
opened a "parliamentary
bureau" where local resi-
dents could bring their
complaints and problems.

Foods made of rice may
not be eaten during the
Passover week. The same
restriction applies to beans
and other kinds of legumes.
While the leavened result
of these products was not ac-
tually originally forbidden,
these products were out-
lawed during the Passover
week for at least two rea-
sons. Sometimes other
grains of wheat are mixed
with rice and thus would
produce a leavened product.
Furthermore, sometimes
these products are used as
substitutes for wheat in
making bread. Therefore, it
might be possible for some-
ome to mistake a bread
product made of wheat for

.; .!

that made of rice, and thus
the person might wind up
eating forbidden leavened
wheat products on the
Passover.
While some Jewish com-
munities do permit rice
products on Passover, the
Western Jewish com-
munities have forbidden it
for many years.
