    ... store when he got up in the morning and closed it when he retired for the day. This was daily routine. The Bes Midrosh was the focal point of activity—religious, social and political. If one wanted to meet a person he went to the Bes Midrosh toward dusk, met him there and talked over the subject matter. The periods before elections, whether local or national, had the Bes Midrosh abuzzing. In the front pews, people would do the praying, but in the rear, the din of political or private discussions or deals would drown out the sounds of the prayers. Saturday afternoons would find circles of Jews congregating in the "Marek". A good deal of verbal bantcrings would be heard here. The kibi-tzers would analyze the week's activities of "Kohol," the distribution of the Alyioth, and intersperse their ...

    ... the little ones. Though the children are released from the burden of fasting it is considered necessary to accustom them to it gradually, and the length of the fast is determined by the child’s age. At "Shahrit" before Yom Kippur, "quartets" are organized, with three members acting as a court-of-law' and the fourth as the appelant: "Hear me. masters, judges, experts !" he turns to them, begging to be released from his vows and promises of the past year. It is a kind of personal "mini Kol Nidrei", made in accordance with legal procedure. After the service the congregation of the Cloises partakes of brandy and cake, with everybody wishing his neighbour "Hatima Tova" (a Favorable Signature) Minha, said before the final meal, is gone to on foot, earlier than usual, and the festive ...

     51 synagogues who had established his right over this prayer for many years. Having read all the liturgy according to accepted tradition and reaching the "Alcinu leshabeah" — when he prostrated himself on the rug for "Kor’im umishtahavim" (one kneels and bows down), he would suddenly burst out laugh-ing, to the consternation of the whole congregation. Who can say what it was that made the "Ba’aJ tephilla" laugh ? Was it the act of falling down on his knees or, as some wags had it, that whenever he knelt he would be reminded of an old gentile crone who had slipped before his windows with a basket-ful of eggs on market day ? Whatever the ...

    ... practically out of bounds for the grown- Only one of them, the tobacconist’s "Traffic", stood out colorfully. Tobacco, like vodka, was a government monopoly and only people with special rights, such as war-invalids, were licensed to sell it. The lintel of the shop was painted in diagonal stripes of red and white — the national colors, showing that this was a special shop selling a state commodity. The pubs, on the other hand, though they too sold a government commodity like vodka, were not decorated with the national colors (perhaps as a mark of respect). Even though your father didn't smoke, you were bound to go into "Traffic" for one reason or another, run-ning errands for the adults who had the unquestionable right to use the children’s services. The purchase would not be on a grand ...
