stones that attest to the
diverse background of Rich-
mond's Jews. But the most
striking sight in this tranquil
place is the intricate iron
fence near the front of the
cemetery.
In a city well known for its
ornamental ironwork — it is
second only to New Orleans —
this is a fence that Richmond
natives consider one of the ci-
ty's most unusual.
Designed by Major William
Meyers, it is both decorative
and symbolic. Its carefully
detailed rails represent the
arms of all the branches of the
Confederate service — stack-
ed muskets for infantry, cross-

ed sabers for calvary, and flat
caps for artillery. A circular
design represents wreaths of
laurel, and the fence posts are
fashioned like furled flags.
The plot of ground enclosed
by this symbolic fence is
known as Soldiers Section.
Here are buried 31 Jewish
Civil War soldiers of the
South. The memorial stone
inside the enclosure reads,
"lb the glory of God and in
memory of the Hebrew Con-
federate soldiers resting in
this hallowed spot."
It is a silent but eloquent
reminder that Richmond's
Jews played a vital role in
their city's sometimes painful
history.

Events in Jerusalem in the
last two weeks have ge-
nerated non-stop comment.
In some quarters, there has
been a reassessment of the
relationship between the
United States and Israel; in
others, there has been a
surge of bitter enmity. Some
Palestinians and Israeli
Jews have spoken out for
moderation and a peaceful
settlement to their differ-
ences; others insist that
violence is the only recourse.
Below are voices — Ameri-
can, Israeli, Palestinian —
in the international chorus
that has commented on de-
velopments in Israel.
— A.J.M.
