unchangeable, and His law is un-
changeable. If God says not- to
make fire on the Sabbath, the Or-
thodox Jew accepts this absolute
law. No is no. The Jew's decision is
not difficult. In fact, it is no deci-
sion at all. It is a command, a
mitzvah. The Creator says no.
And he who gives life must be
obeyed.
Re: fire, it follows clearly that
we may not drive a car on the Sab-
bath. Answering a telephone is
prohibited, for our rabbis have de-
cided that electricity is a form of
fire. Thep'sak halachah, the legal
decision, finally made is -binding
. . .Sociologically, I would like to
see the acceptance of the Ethopian
Jew as a full member of the
Jewish people. Halachically
speaking — that is, according to
generally accepted Jewish law —
the Ethiopian Jew must undergo
a form of conversion. In a democ-
racy, I would like to get first
aliyah when I am called to the To-
rah. Regretfully, I am not a Ko-
hain and am thus ineligible ac-
cording to Halachah. We are
bound by accepted halachah

which comes from the root word
"to go." Halachah is our way of life
— from birth to death, waking to
sleep. We are voluntarily bound
by God's everlasting and immut-
able law .. .
Our Torah life is rich beyond
understanding of those who do not
partake. How can I describe the
Sabbath tisch (table) of the Torah
Jew? We are imbued with the
spiritual richness of the Torah.
We are truly happy with our por-
tion.

Solomon Lox and Faye Menczer enjoyed last year's Project Outreach
party.

The Festival of Lights signals a
special time when families and
friends get together of rejoice in
the spirit of Chanukah. To assist
in the celebration, and step in a1 a
friend, the Jewish Welfare Feder-
ation "family of agencies" pro-
vides services to the Jewish com-

munity that otherwise might go
unmet.
Nowhere is the spirit of the
holiday more evident that at
Jewish Vocational Service. From
their downtown location, JVS
serves inner-city clients through
Project Outreach, a program that
