Santa Fe, N.M. (JTA) — Vis-
itors to this city's St. Francis
Cathedral with a keen eye for ar-
chitectural details are often sur-
prised to see Hebrew letters in-
scribed in the sandstone above the
main entrance. Enclosed in a
prominent triangle are four He-
brew letters spelling Yaheveh, or
God.
How the Hebrew inscription
came to be placed on this Roman
Catholic church is a question
which goes back to the time of the
construction of the church. But
the answer to this question is not
easily found and remains a source
of controversy.
One frequently heard tale
about the inscription involves the
original construction of the
cathedral in 1869. Building was
started under the direction of Ar-
chbishop Jean Baptiste Lamy,
who, parenthetically, earned
notoriety as the subject of a 1926
novel by Willa Cather, Death
Comes for the Archbishop.
Legend has it that the ar-
chbishop ran out of construction
funds, and it appeared for a time
that the cathedral' could not be
completed. Abraham Staab, a
Jewish businessman in Santa Fe,
who was a friend of Lamy, is often
credited with having helped fi-
nance the completion of the proj-
ect.
It is said that there was under-
standing between Lamy and
Staab in which Staab would make
available the funds necessary to
complete the building by cancel-
ing a loan which he had prev-
iously made to Lamy. In return,
Staab could place an inscription of
his own choosing over the
entrance of the cathedral during
construction. Lamy agreed, and
the inscription suggested by
Staab was placed according to the
agreement: the Hebrew word for
God.

Wishing all our family and
friends a year of
health and happiness

Salonika Jewish
past recalled

Salonika (JTA) — It was one of
the most illustrious Sephardic
Jewish communities, and it was
at the epicenter of Greek Jewry.
Then, the Nazis laid waste to it.
On the eve of the Holocaust, the
port city of Salonika was very
much a Jewish city. The 5,000
Jews, who comprised about a
third of its population, occupied a
place of importance comparable to
the Jews of New York today. "The
Jews were the kings," says Chris-
tos Stathopoulos. "The kings."
Stathopoulos, who manages the
Capsis Hotel, is not old enough to
remember Salonika's distinct
Jewish flavor. But he has heard
stories from his father, who had
good relations with the Jews.
Albert Naar, the 37-year-old
secretary of the Jewish commu-
nity, can only read about the
greatness of the Jewish Salonika.
But he, too, is impressed. "An Ita-
lian poet from Ferrara called
Salonika the Mother of Israel, and
he was right. This was a city that
