At Coats Unlimited...

women were given a wig and a
$100 bill in exchange for a
promise to wear the wig and to
marry an unnamed yeshiva stu-
dent in Brooklyn.
Here is another personal re-
collection of a more recent time.
The scene: a Bayside, N.Y.
synagogue, Yom Kippur eve. A

I offer these examples of
"soul-saving" to Dr. Jacobs as
food for thought in his plan to
hire a corps of "circuit rabbis" to
reach college students in order
to "keep them within our fold."
Terrific, Dr. Jacobs, but please,

troopers, wielding truncheons
and mowing us down with sub-
machine guns." Is this a college
campus in America in 1985?
Abusing the Holocaust in
every crisis, real or imagined, is
tantamount to yelling "fire" in a
crowded movie theater. If, God
forbid, the real danger arises, no
one will pay attention.
