lo others and to the world.
Rosh Hashana*Yom Kippur comes at what might be an end — a har-
vest — and they also serve as a beginning — a stocktaking of one’s
position; how one can improve and reconstruct one’s actions to make the
world better for all humanity.
£ It is a beautiful holiday and much more. With its ethical impact, it ser-
ies the mind and the body. It speaks of the drama of life and what each
%f us have to invest in ourselves and in others not only to explore the
drama but to nurture it and construct a better way.
During this pre-Rosh Hashana season we’ve been vitally immersed in a
treasured drama of life within our own Texas Jewish Post and personal
J We’re speaking about this consonance because the matriarch of
"tature and individuality is our mother, Betty F. Wisch, who is now in a
critical fight in that drama of life at Baylor Hospital in Dallas.
BFW is much more than an acronym. The initials embody a personality
vivid with love, a fierce enjoyment and zest for working and doing, a sen-
se of achievement, of construction, of mounting obstacles in the face of
®reat adversities and hazards, of not paying lip-service to Jewish ideals
£ut teaching them by example, of marching strong in the vanguard of
what is now considered common-place women’s lib by being stalwart in
her fight for recognition of a woman’s place in the sun: for respect for her
individuality and for showing that a woman could use her brains to com-
pete with men not only on an equal basis but in many cases could out-
perform men when the chips weren’t loaded and it was only ability and
performance that was measured and not sex.

Haahnna, will start at sundown next

While local servicemen will participate
in the High Holy Day services as guests in
private, homes and of Congregations,
Rabbi Herschel Scjacter, chairman of the
Jewish Welfare Board’s Commission on
Jewish Chaplaincy told the TJPost:
Rabbi Schacter, chairman of the JWB
Commission on Jewish Chaplaincy, noted,
“Since there are only 44 full-time Jewish
military chaplains on active duty with
American forces and 11 more at Veterans
Administration hospitals, the commission
will help mobilize 246 civilian and reserve
rabbis as well as 172 lay religious leaders
to conduct Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur
services at every base where Jews serve.
“Services,” Rabbi Schacter said, “will
take place in Europe at bases in such
countries as Spain, Germany, Greece and
Turkey. In the Far East, there will be
services in Korea, Japan, the Philippines
The first of the military services will
occur on the island of Guam in the South
Pacific, just east of the International Date
Line and since services follow the sun,
Pearl Harbor in Hawaii will be the last
base to sound the shofar blast trumpeting
the end of the High Holy Days.
In Alaska, armed forces personnel will
observe the High Holy Days with the
assistance of Chaplain Alan M. Klein,
Jewish chaplain at Elmendorf Air Force
Rase near Anchorage.
Personnel at Ft. Wain wright and
Eielson Air Force Base will hold services
at Ft. Wainwright with Rabbi Klein
