Full text: Thursday, June 21,.1951 JEWISH WESTERN BULLETIN Poge 3 nest By ELiAlaU BEN-HOBIN Je:i^usalem,br rather Yeruish-alaim, is supposed to mean "The City of "Peace;" Jerusalem, however, has riot )been as peaceful as its name .implies, either in centuries gone by or in recent timies. The siefe of Jerusalem and the bombardriierit and destruction rained on; the Holy City by the Arab Legion, formed one of the saddest chapters of Israel's War of Independence. At long last, it.seems that peace is returning to th6 "City of iPeace." We refer to "The Conquest of the Desert." Under this title, an International Exhibition and Fair is scheduled to take place in Jerusalem in the Spring, of 1952; The Exhibition will show the means by which various nations have fought the desert 'and conquered it for cultivation and colonization. The Fair will display agricultural equipment, fertilizers, construction machinery—^ everyr thing that is employed when wilderness is transformed into a fruitful area. In addition, an international scientific symposium will be held at thie same time in Jerusalem. Scientists from the four corners of the earth will exchange views and experiences on such subjects Eilipressidns of Unify as g^logy and minerology, utilization of energy from the sun! and; the similar prob-- lems of the desert.

Bl Ginsberg, Rabbi David C. kogen and Rabbi Leon M. Moze-son. From the story of how Moses v/ent out of his way to return the remains of Joseph back to the Holy Land, Rabbi kogen drew a prosaic analogy. He paid special tribute to the people who worked seiilessly for the achievement of the new chapel, naming in particular, Abe Wosk, Sam Levi and iJack Piamond. Rabbi Kbgen expressed the hope that the" new Chapel will become a true community Chapel. "There may be .^differences among us Jn the way we do things," he said, "but this should not make two chapels necessary. Let us first all help to pay for this new chapel, and later we can concern ourselves with its setup and operation and the resolution of our differences. The Chapel sijduld be a reminder to help make our dear departed live oh in us." Rabbi Mozeson echoed the hope that the new chapel will "d^ little business" but it was his duty to announce a funeral to take place in the chapel the next day due to the passing of Mrs. E. H. Kalen- sky- .'. ■ "A religious God-fearing man has a better chance to live longer," Rabbi Mozeson stated. Three ways to prolong life, he said are "to embrace almighty God and forget about our own small problems, through prayer and by getting rid of hatred. If we have an argument let's talk it out," he urged. In the new chapel, he said, everyone who passes away will be looked after without differentiation. Jack Diamond presented the gold keys which were awarded to Abe Wosk and Sam Levi. Before doing so he called for further contributions and support for the chapel. Speaking in his capacity as Chairman of the ScAara Tzedeck Cemetery Board, Mr. Diamond paid tribute to Ezidor Morris, president of the Chevera Kad-isha and to several members of the Cemetery Board and Chapel Conunittee including I. Flader, D. A. Chertkow and Irving Chert-kow, as well as Messers Wosk and Levi. Mr. Diamond also welcomed Mr. M. Fouks, president of Schafa Tzedeck and Rev. Shuster, who both recently came out of the hospital after illness. (Irving Chertkow is in charge of all funds collected for the Schara Tzedeck Chapel.) Ben Pastinsky presented the mond and paid tribute to Mr,,Dia7 mond for his outstanding service to Congregation Schara Tzedeck. Cantor David Reznik sang L'-Dovid Mizmor,,a cantorial definition of Schara Tzedeck and El Moleh Rachamim. Cantor Fred Gartner was unable to attend as he had to leave town earlier than planned.
