Detroit Friends to Aid SZ
Hospital Pediatric Dialysis

first kidney dialysis
machines went into opera-
tion in 1970. There are 200
new cases of primary ir-
reversible kidney failure
annually diagnosed in Is-
rael and there is an acute
need for additional funds to
maintain artificial kidney
machines. -
Dialysis treatment is
inconvenient because the
patient must go to the
hospital three times each
week and be connected to
an artificial kidney
machine for four hours at
a time. The dialysis units,
which cost $10,000 each,
perform the function of
the kidney, cleaning the
blood and removing
waste products from the
body's metabolism.
The artificial kidney is
not a cure — patients do not
"recover" with dialysis
treatment but are simply
kept alive. They must con-
tinue their treatment until

Sukkot's Fall
Date Seen as
Test of Faith


(Copyright 1983, JTA, Inc.)

The selection of the time
of year for Sukkot (fall) has
to do with the biblical com-
mandment which requires
Jews to dwell in temporary
Sukkot (shacks) for the
holiday week.
It is in fall, when the
weather gets colder, that a
person demonstrates his
faith in obeying the Al-
mighty's command to dwell
in the sukka in spite of the
colder temperature. Were it
in summer or spring when
the weather is warm the
sukka might be taken to
mean a dwelling of con-
venience to escape the heat
of the'house.
Some feel that the sukka
is a symbol of the world in
which a person –comes to
after this life. He leaves his
earthly dwelling and goes to
his home in paradise. In the
autumn when the leaves
fall and the ground hardens
we feel a symbol of death.
Instead of exhibiting fear
and remorse we express joy
and confidence because we
believe that our departure
from this world is only a joy-
ous entry into the paradise
of the next world.
There are also those who
contend that one of the pur-
poses of the Sukkot holiday
is to show the Almighty our
appreciatioh for the fall
harvest — thus Sukkot oc-
curs in the fall.
