diation. Moreover, because of the
nature of the Hebrew language
as well as the Jewish concept of
God, meditative techniques quite
often consisted of a combination
of mantric chant and various de-
grees of contemplation similar to
yet highly distinct from prayer.
Furthermore, prior to the fall
of the second Temple, over a mil-
lion people in Israel were involved
in such activity. Indeed, there
were hundreds of academies that
taught an array of highly disci-
plined schools of meditation. The
goal of such practice was con-
sciousness alteration enabling
one to arrive at a level of recep-
tivity to clear visions as well as
the energy to act upon them.
A proper teacher can guide a
student through various levels of
mantic chant requiring a sensi-
tivity for the rhythm and the
sound of various types of Hebrew
texts.
The advantage of mediation is
its emphasis on discipline and
mechanics, not worthiness. One

need not feel inadequate about
not "understanding" word mean-
ings. The technique is referred to
as "the ladder," one of four rungs
corresponding to what the Ka-
ballists identify as the 'four
realms of existence."
The over-riding message

seems quite clear. For those who
feel disenchanted or uncomfort-
able with traditional prayer, they
might do well to consider a pro-
gram of properly supervised me-
diation, one whose skills are
learned and practiced in
"stages." D

Missing Airman Arad
In Syria Until '89

Bonn (JTA) — Missing Israeli air
force navigator Ron Arad was
held until March 1989 in a Beirut
prison under Syrian supervision,
according to a special report aired
on German television.
The televised report based its
findings on a "top-secret" docu-
ment found by an Israeli profes-
sor, Michael - Wolfson, whose
research led him to the files of the
Stasi, the secret service of the for-
mer East German state.
As part of his work, Mr. Wolf-
son also studied correspondence
exchanged between the Stasi and
the KGB, the former Soviet

Union's intelligence service.
The document quoted a KGB
report that the missing naviga-
tor, along with other Israeli
MIAs, was to be part of a prison-
er swap between the former So-
viet Union and Israel.
They were to be exchanged for
Soviet spies Marcus Klingberg
and Shabtai Kalmanovitch, who
were held in Israel, and possibly
also for Nelson Mandela, who
was still in a South African prison
at the time.
Mr. Wolfson found the docu-
ment among the private archives
of Erich Milke, 85, the former
