The Last Book
RABBI CRAIG L. ALLEN
Special to The Jewish News
e have been called
the "People of the
Book" i.e. Torah. In
its broadest sense, Torah can
be defined as all of Jewish
learning, our entire system of
beliefs and behavior.
Of course, in the narrowest
sense, when we speak of
Torah we are talking about
Chumash, the Five Books of
Moses. Certainly, it is the cen-
tral symbol of our religious
and historical experience
which is ongoing and, in a
During the course of the
Jewish year, we read the en-
tire Torah in weekly
segments beginning and en-
ding in the fall. Last week we
began the last of the five
books, Devarim (Deuteron-
omy). It has been said that if
you want to understand the
Jewish people, study the book

Membership in B'nai B'rith is important to me . . . .
I have been a member of the Harry B. Keidan Lodge for
over 45 years. I take great pride in the Jewish presence on
college campuses and universities that B'nai B'rith maintains
through their Hillel program promoting Jewish education,
preserving Jewish culture, and training Jewish leaders of
I am proud to be a member of an organization that under-
takes the great task of preparing our young people for the
rising tide of anti-Semitism. We often take religious liberties
for granted, yet history teaches us that we cannot become complacent. The Anti-
Defamation league of B'nai B'rith is ever present to protect all of us from religious
hatred and persecution. Who else is there to speak for us but, ADL?

pasuk (sentence) of Chapter 4.
The very word Yisrael tells us
much about Jewish identity.
The idea of Jacob being
renamed after wrestling with
an angel is at the heart of the
ongoing Jewish experience.
Having overcome such a be-
ing, he had nothing to fear
from man. We need only to
see ourselves as if we per-
sonally wrestled with an
angel in order to establish a
personal connection with
Jewish survival. History
bears this out. Those who
bless us will be blessed and
those who curse us will be
The next word, Sh'ma has
implications beyond the usual
English translation of hear.
The word actually means to
listen. In such a way as to
understand the significance
of what you are hearing. At
the revelation at Mt. Sinai,
the Jewish people made a
As a long-time member of Pisgah Lodge, one of the oldest
lodges in B'nai B'rith, I am proud to be associated with an
organization that serves the needs of the Jewish people and
the communities in which they live.
B'nai B'rith is a democratic family organization, interna-
tional, involved, indispensable and uniquely equipped to ef-
fectively deal with significant issues in today's complex world.
If there were no B'nai B'rith, someone would invent it
