Jerusalem — What kind of ex-
citement, drama, glamor or fasci-
nation can be found in an old stone
house? It all depends on who lived
there and what happened there.
The house of which we speak,
located in the heart of Jerusalem,
was constructed about the middle.
of the last century for a wealthy
Arab dignitary by the name of
Aga Rashid. It was one of the very
early buildings put up outside the
old city walls, just a stone's throw
from a winding lane called Jaffa

Road. Perhaps it was too far from
the teeming center of activity, but
Rashid soon rented it to Moses W.
Shapira, a dealer in antiquities.
The latter, though born a Jew,
had been baptized and raised his
family as Christians.
His daughter, Miryam, in a
charming account of her child-
hood, describes the magnificent
stone building and the lovely gar-
den surrounding it. She tells of
the trips her father used to make
into the Land of Moab and

looking for antiquities which _he!
then sold on the European mar-
kets.
One day he came home in gr( at
excitement, displaying scrap':
weathered scrolls, with ancient
Hebrew writing, which he had
bought from Arabs in the Dead
Sea area. Miryam describes the
long hours her father spent over
them, unrolling and decipherislii,,
them. He then hastened off to Be-;
rlin and London to offer them for
sale. She does not tell, or perhaps
did not know at the time, that
dozen years earlier her father had
been found guilty of fabricatin
"ancient" Moabite pottery.
Shapira had his moment - ol
glory. in London, but the expert:4
soon came to the conclusion that
the scrolls were frauds too: They
were withdrawn from display in
the British Museum, and ',;hc.1
scrolls which had once beet,
spread across the tables in the o.
stone house in Jerusalem werE
sold cheaply as curios. They -ha*
since disappeared, but in view OS,
the more recent finding of thE
famous Dead Sea Scrolls, moderrl
experts would love to get theii
hands on them again.
The antiquarian was disgraced
He committed suicide in despair:
and his family vacated the hGust,

with having done more to reduce
trachoma in the country, espe

building was ideal as both a horrii
and a clinic, and patients came*
him from everywhere. At
entire Arab families would cams '
out in the garden, awaiti n €
treatment.
All was not entirely tranquil
During the 1929 riots an A. -re'
fanatic stabbed the doctor in th€
back at the very entrance of t
building. The victim hoveredle
tween life and death, and the cr
rabbinate issue.d a call to th
entire country to pray for his re

prayers. Dr. Ticho did reccA,'er
The house became a salon whey :
the Tichos entertained lead='s
