THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Greetings from Herzog

What's News?

It is a privilege for me to address World Jewry as
president of the state of Israel on the occasion of Rosh
Hashana, 5744.

In'the course of the past year Israel has signed a second
formal agreement with an Arab country, namely, Lebanon.
However, many problems continue to beset Israel —political,
military, economic and social. We look forward to the com-
ing year in the hope that, as in the past, so in the future, the
common efforts of our people in the state of Israel, coupled
with the efforts of the Jewish people, will enable us to over-
come many of these problems.
Now, as never before, it is incumbent upon the Jewish
people to close ranks and stand together. The ominous rise of
anti-Semitism in different parts of the world, coupled with
an increase in acts of violence and terror against Jewish
persons and institutions, must sound an alarm in many
Jewish communities.

The greatest danger facing our people, however, is not
from our enemies, but from within our ranks. The Jewish
people is being decimated by assimilation, which in many
communities reaches catastrophic dimensions. There are
only two effective measures to overcome this danger. The
first is by strengthening and enlarging the Jewish educa-
tional system in every community. The second is by in-
creased involvement on the part of Jewish youth throughout
the world in life in Israel, by studying here, visiting and
spending vacations — all of which we hope will culminate in
aliya.

I send special greetings to the members of our Jewish
family who live under oppression and suffer from discrimi-
nation, who languish in prison and in exile, and who crave
to join us in freedom. They are always in our thoughts.
I send my greetings on behalf of the people oflsrael to the
Jewish communities of the world from the eternal city of
Jerusalem, confident in the knowledge that by common ef-
fort, the Jewish people throughout the world will continue
to prosper, that your communities will be successful in all
their fields of activity and that Jewish communal and per-
sonal involvement with Israel will continue to grow and
develop
A Happy New Year to you all.
Chaim Herzog

Mutual Forgiveness

By ISSACHAR MIRON — Seven Arts Feature

Editor's note: Miron is a prize-winning composer,
writer, director and educator, who has composed
over 2,000 songs, including the hit, "Tzena, Tzena,
Tzena.")

It follows figuratively the moon,
Yet metaphorically it out-scintillates the sun,
Sanctifying a new dawning
For the magnanimity of the divine judgment.
It places in our hands
A torch casting a long light
Toward the ultimate salvation
Through the mutuality of forgiveness.
It's Rosh Hashana.
Happy Holiday.

Barbie Arrested

Klaus Barbie, known as
the "Butcher of Lyon," the
French city where he was
Gestapo chief during World
War II, was arrested in La
Paz, Bolivia in January for
a local criminal offense.

France asked his extradi-
tion for his role in the depor-
tation of thousands of
French Jews to Nazi death
camps and the murder of
French resistance leader
Jean Moulin.

It's spanning, round-the-year,
High-stakes suspension 'bridges
Without intervening support from the heights,
Over the ever-widening gulfs of doubt
On each side of the abyss.
Like an ominously transcendental Damoclean sword,
It portends that without forgiveness,
The assuaging supplication
For the impending heavenly verdict
To be signed and sealed for life,
Might be lost and our case prejudiced.

So it's bringing the exulted lion
Unabashedly to his knees,
Importuning the trembling lamb for forgiveness
For all transgressions by commission;
And it causes the lamb to expiate for sins of omission
By-syllogistically tending to impute
All lions as heartless beasts.
Then all souls lost in the tired clouds,
Like perplexed raindrops
In the painted whirlpools of mind,
Will be found and purified and magnified,
Thus descending from the unseen subtleties of cleverness
Into the unnamed simplicities of true justice.

`News' means different things to different people and the one
place where all the people will find all the 'news' they're looking
for . . . is in the newspaper! It's business and sports, coupons
and classifieds, and much, much, more. This week and through-
out the year, take advantage of the many facts and features that
the newspaper has to offer. It's for you!
