for a daily minyan. If a
traveling schnorrer came in
on the Greyhound bus from
Nashville, he became our
tenth man, for which after
services he got dinner and a
free ticket on the bus leaving
later that night for Hop-
kinsville, Ky., twenty-six
miles away. The trick with
schnorrers, as with hobos (the
Depression was in full swing)
was to keep them moving.
The unpredictable supply of
schnorrers being what it was,
I, though hardly a boy yet,
frequently became the tenth
man. My presence served a
twofold purpose: it
legitimized the minyans so
long as nobody asked how old
I was, and, with no cheder for
me to attend, my uncles used
them as a substitute for
"teaching me something about
my religious heritage. For
one so young, it was an ag-
gravation and an unwelcome
chore.
But if minyans were an
unwelcome chore, attending
Rosh Hashanah and Yom
Kippur services was not. By
the time I was eight years
old, I had started fasting. I
never got a headache unless
my mother got one. Rosh
Hashanah was more exciting
than Yom Kippur because it
emphasized feasting rather
than fasting. A lot of apples
and honey and other goodies.
I always looked forward to
seeing those hundred people
materialize out of nowhere.
Except for my family, I didn't
know anybody there, but it
was like a clan gathering.
At the afternoon break,
small clusters of men, myself
tagging along, walked the
eight blocks or so down to the
banks of the Cumberland
River to perform Tashlich. As
a small child, I had a feeling
of importance in going to the
river to get rid of my sins.
But unlike my elders who
had prudently emptied their
pockets before having sym-
bolically to open them out, I
was always obliged by my
forgetfulness to part with a
nickel or a quarter, a pack of
chewing gum or some other
treasure or trifle. Tashlich
became a memorable custom
to me, if an exasperating one.
I once gave up a favorite
yo-yo to the murky, swift
flowing current.
Immediately after the Days
of Awe passed, Sunday school
began. Somebody went to the
temple early on Sunday
mornings to get the coal
stove going before the motley
