Attorney General
Cites Danish Help

Washington (JTA) — In a
year commemorating the
50th anniversary of many
grim events relating to the
Nazi Holocaust, Jews
gathered here last week to
celebrate one bright spot of
1943: the rescue of the Jews
of Denmark.
The Danish people, unlike
so many others in Europe,
protected their Jewish
citizens from Nazi death
camps, hiding Jews in
Danish homes and smuggl-
ing most of the Jewish com-
munity to the nearby
neutral country of Sweden.
Among the speakers at the
commemoration, held at a
synagogue in Washington,
was Attorney General Janet
Reno, who is of Danish
ancestry.
Ms. Reno called the event
"a symbol that each of us
has to rededicate ourselves
to stand up against evil."
U.S. Ambassador to Den-
mark Richard Stone read a
letter from President Clin-
ton, who cited the Danish
"example of courageous
kindness."
About 1,500 people at-
tended the commemoration,

which was organized b
Washington Hebrew Con
gregation and a group calle
Thanks to Scandinavia
whose purpose is to mak
people aware of the Danis
rescue.
Peter Dyvig, the Danis
ambassador to the Unite
States., called the events o
1943 "the first large-scal
human rights action in th
history of man."
Henrik Liljegren, th
Swedish ambassador to th
Washington, noted that
his country, "heroic act
were performed more by i
dividuals than by the au
thorities."
The event, lasting over tw •
and a half hours, include •
performances by a Danis
Jewish pianist, and a Danis
actress whose father was
resistance fighter in Worl .
War II.
Also speaking was Frod :
Jakobsen, the head of th
Danish resistance durin
the war, who is now 86 year
old.
Similar events will be hel
in cities across the country
including Los Angeles
Chicago, and Minneapolis.

Female Prayer Group
Holds First Meeting

London (JTA) — Only the
sound of emotional tears
disturbed the reverent hush
of prayer last weekend as
more than 60 women
gathered for the first wo-
men-only Shabbat service to
be sanctioned by Britain's
chief rabbi.
The historic gathering, at
a private house in Nor-
thwest London, was greeted
with delight and not a little
relief by the memberN of the
Stanmore Women's' Tefillah
Group, whose desire for their
own service had sparked
months of debate within the
Orthodox Jewish community
here.
One participant, visiting
from America, where such
groups flourish, said she was
struck by the confidence the
women displayed in conduc-
ting the two-hour service.
Confident they may have
seemed, but before they
began their prayers, they
were still discussing how

being no precedent in this
country to give the
guidance.
"We will have to •
creative," concluded on
participant, although th
main concern for these Or
thodox women was to re
main strictly within th
bounds of the Halachah, o
Jewish law.
Leaving husbands an
sons to attend the normal
Shabbat service at Stanmore
Synagogue a few yards
away, the women embarked
on reading the weekly Tor
portion from the Chumash
rather than the Torah scro
— one of the conditions
sought by the chief rabbi,
Jonathan Sacks.
They went on to recite the
traditional prayers for th
Royal family and the State
of Israel as well as a speci
blessing for women, and a
prayer for agunot — women
who are unable to acquire a
get, or religious divorce,
