Special

Middle Ages the Jew was
made an outcast, imprisoned
in ghettos, forbidden to own
land. And so our ancestors
cultivated their minds in-
stead of their land and pro-
duced brilliant works of
scholarship and literature.
In 1946, Ernest Bevin clos-
ed the gates of Palestine to
100,000 Holocaust survivors,
so we set about creating a
State - of Israel which today
serves more than 3 million
free and proud citizens of our
faith. Indeed, from the ashes
of the Holocaust emerged the
miracle of Israel reborn.
Misfortunes have their
redeeming qualities and they
can be found if they are
prepared to look for them.
Death brings an appreciation
for life. Tragedy can bring
relatives closer together and
awaken dormant loves and

loyalties. Failure can spur one
on to successes never dream-
ed- of. In the curse itself often
lies the seed of blessing.
It has been noted that
Passover reminds us that we
are the only people who
learned to eat maror — bit-
terness — and recite a bless-
ing over it. Sukkot goes one
step further. It reminds us
that we are the only people
that can take an etrog and re-
joice with it. We are a people
that has always been able to
wrest victory from defeat.
This is the secret of Jewish
history, why we are here to- _
day. From the etrog we have
learned the secret of survival.
We survived because we were
able to transform catastro-
phes into religious obser-
vances, defeats into victories
and above all, curses into
blessings. ❑
