    ... manual on the subject in Israel. We returned to Beth Alpha to pick up our car and left for Tiberias. We stayed there overnight being anxious to return to Haifa the same day for the Friday eve services, and wishing also to visit the same day the Northern part of Palestine the Moshav or village of Mctulla, we rose very early and started out. En route. Julius expressed the desire to visit at the Shrine of Rcb Meyer Ball Hancss. or Rcb Meyer the Miracle worker. Reaching the Shrine, we tried though it was still dark to look into the inner chamber. By pushing the gate the chain from inside loosened so that we were able to push our way in. Julius lit a match and we observed a copper basin filled with oil and some cotton little candles swimming in the oil. We lit all these liny cotton candles ...

    ... fast nicht. PROF. DR. MICHAEL BERKOWICZ Prof. Dr. Michael Berkowicz ist in Boryslaw am 3. Februar 1865 geborn und hat dort eine fromme Erziehung genossen. Doch bald ging er nach Lemberg und oblag mit vielem Fleiss hebrä-ischen Studien. Schon damals interessierte er sich für hebrä-ische Grammatik und das trug ihm unter den Chassidim den Spott-namen eines "Baal Dickduck" ein. Es war eine Zeit, wo man sich selbst in der Jeschiwah schon heimlich oder offen mit allge-meiner Bildung befasste, und brennender Wissensdrang beseite auch unseren Studenten. Aber die Not - nennt man sie mit Recht die Mutter der Wissenschaft - trieb ihn aus der Schule in ein Geschäft. Er hielt es dort nicht lange aus und kehrte zum Studium zurück. Endlich machte er am Brodyer Gymnasium ...

    ... , consisting of one room and a shared kitchen, in which they lived with their two daughters (before the birth of Tzvika, long may he live) was spacious enough to take in anyone who came to them. I shall never forget the scene when I first entered the home of Yehoshua and Adele. As I opened the door leading to their room I saw an enlarged picture of a beautiful baby girl on the wall. I pulled up short, feeling a chill down my spine. I knew that picture... it was a photograph of their eldest daughter, Dina, long may she live, who was by now a school-girl. Yehoshua and Adele had sent the portrait to their parents in Brzozow before war had broken out. The proud grandparents had shown it to the whole shtetl, boasting of their lovely grandchild. The shtetl had been like one large family ...

    ... assasins with all that notorious German efficiency to the and of achieving their sa-tanic "final solution", i.e., the obliteration of all traces of Jewish being from the face of the earth. There was no lack of enthusiastic collaborators in the countries the Germans occupied, aiding and abet-ting them in their foul crimes so that when things were at their worst all outlets of escape to the free world were hermetically closed to us. It was the fear of being the next in line to fall before the genocidal killer, the cruel oppressor in his march towards the victory of the "thousand-year Reich", which forced the Allies to draw on all their economical and spiritual resources. Only by exerting themselves to an enormous effort and after a long drawn-out and bloody war did they finally manage ...

He was well-known as an excellent "Baal Tefilah" and was a permanent cantor at the Beyt Hamidrash. He possessed a won-derful baritone voice and his prayers had an unfor-getable effect on all the listeners. The Ryshin Chasidim started their " ... ecstasy and a need for repentance. You could not forget his prayers "Hineni Heani Memaas" (Behold in deep Humility I stand and Plead before Thee, God on high), the "Netaneh Tokefh" (We will observe the mighty holi-ness of his day) and the "Ya-aleh Tachanuneinu" (O may our supplications rise at nightfall).
