"The Binding of Isaac:
Midrash & Memory"
Aviva Silverman

The story of the binding of Isaac (known in Jewish tradition as the "Akedah") is one of
the most powerful, inspiring, and disturbing of all religious texts. Why did the editors of
our liturgy choose this story to read from the Torah on Rosh Hashanah morning? What
is the Akedah's relationship to the themes of the High Holidays? How and why did the
psychological and religious power of this story grow over the centuries, especially
during the Middle Ages, when Jewish parents and children saw themselves as reliving
Abraham and Isaac's trial in the face of the Crusades? How can studying the binding
of Isaac help us prepare for the Days of Awe?

Israel Police Force
Recruits Yordim

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Israel's
police force has begun
recruiting Israelis who have
emigrated abroad to return
home and join up.
Using relatively high
salaries as an inducement,
the recruitment drive will
attempt to convince Israelis
living in the United States
to join the Israeli police
force.
According to Police Com-
mander Yoram Shahal,
deputy head of the new cam-
p a i gn: "Israelis living
abroad are often reticent to
return home because they
don't have jobs waiting for
them."
"In addition to helping the
police force enlist new
recruits, we also have an
important Zionist mission to
bring Israelis back home,"
he said.
Prospective candidates
will be referred by their local
consulates to a New York-
based senior police repre-
sentative, who will coor-
dinate all referrals.
Examinations of suitable
candidates will be carried
out in the United States. If a
candidate is accepted, he
will receive his police cer-
tificate prior to returning to
Israel.
Absorption Ministry
representatives from con-
sulates in major American
cities will soon be sending
out questionnaires to
suitable candidates in an at-
tempt to interest them in the
project.
Mr. Shahal said this week
that college graduates are

especially welcome. Though
they will start out in the
force in the same positions
as their non-graduate
counterparts, they would
receive higher salaries.
If a graduate performs well
in the force, he or she would
be promoted quickly to a
senior position, police
spokesmen said.
Positions are available in
patrol, traffic, investiga-
tions, and detective work.
Starting salaries in the
police force are some 20 per-
cent higher than other posi-
tions available in the public

sector, police officials point
out.
A graduate can expect to
earn a starting salary of
$1,230 to $1,400 a month —
which is considerably above
the average Israeli wage —
as well as another $210 a
month in social benefits.
Police Inspector-General
Peled said during a tour
of the police induction center
in Tel Aviv that more than
1,000 police officers have
joined the force since April.
He added that the force
wants to recruit another 800
officers by the end of the
year.
