FROM THE EDITOR Continued from Front Cover to satisfy what the anthems detractors would like to have seen, and will most likely not placate anyone. In addition, the entire effort seems unnecessary. It all started a few months ago, when the Arab member of Israels Supreme Court, Justice Salim Joubran, stood at attention at a retirement ceremony for a colleague as the anthem was sung but, in protest, refused to sing the words that are inherently a message to the Jewish people of the Land of Israel.

FROM THE EDITOR Continued from Page 7 of the Hatikvah. The folks at The Forward changed the word Jew to Israeli, while Carlebach says that her preference would have been ben Adam or son of Man. Neshama says that she wasnt thinking about Arab citizens of Israel and their potential discomfort with the words of the Israel national anthem. I see my work as bringing redemption and awareness, she says and adds that through her music and in the tradition of her father she has the ability to open the do

Shavuos A Primer BY RABBI YAIR HOFFMAN Shavuos is called Zman Matan Toraseinu. Originally, this event occurred in the Hebrew year 2,448 3,324 years ago. Rav Dessler in his Michtav MEliyahu explains that time does not flow as a straight line, but rather as a circle. The day of Shavuos, which is the 6th of Sivan every year, is therefore the very day that we received the Torah. Similarly, the Nesivos Shalom explains that just as the Torah is eternal, so too is Kabbalas HaTorah eternal. Each and eve

Moshe was then told of the mitzvah of separating. On the fourth of Sivan, Moshe was told to go to the nation and sanctify them. He then told them to prepare themselves for three days.

Although it is no longer the custom to split the meal, we do have the custom to eat dairy foods on Shavuos. The reason for this custom is to remind us that when we received the Torah, we were taught the laws of preparing the meat in the proper, kosher manner. Since we were unab
