Indianapolis Indiana Jewish Post (Newspaper) - January 7, 1972, Indianapolis, IndianaIt 25c per copy published weekly and opinion a $10 per Yea tub Indiana jewish Post Quot if you let the people know they can act in. To Lye shalom. Today is Friday january 7, 1972 611 n. Park ave. Me 4-1307 volume xxxix to. 16town crier by . Cohen we have been wanting to comment on the project of the Indianapolis hebrew congregation which began with Friday evening prayer services in a Large number of Homes and is to culminate with a joint service at the Temple. We had hoped to participate in one of these Home services but trips to new York and now to Florida made this impossible. Thus we re not in a position to comment on the program but we can say without reservation that we re wholeheartedly in agreement with it. The project does not have to succeed in order to be successful. If this sounds like a contradiction in terms then let us explain. The Mere fact that a local congregation is experimenting in a Radical Way a there have been experiments by the inc and other congregations which if you use the figure of 100, we would put at about the number 10 a is what is important. Somehow someway the idea of prayer services must make an Impact on jewish living. We done to know the answer but we do know that of the 10,000 jews in Indianapolis at least 90 per cent do not attend services except on special occasions such As a bar Mitzvah or on the High holidays. To bring us up to Date we be just talked to rabbi Saltzman and our idea of the project was a like Many other things we write about we re sure some of you will be saying a not exactly accurate. The Date of the services at the various Homes will be next Friday evening. Meanwhile those who Are sponsoring services in their own Homes plus Many of those who Are planning to attend the services have been meeting once a month to gain the rudiments necessary for conducting such a service. The attendance last month totalled 400. The various hosts plus those who attend will be asked to fill out questionnaires so that the committee heading the project will be Able to report on its successes and failures and from the Experiment draw important conclusions. As we now understand the project it seems More attuned to preparing those who participate to better take part in regular services so that they will understand the meaning of the various prayers be Able to sing the hymns and so Forth. This of course is important but it is not the kind of Experiment we had anticipated one that would develop innovations and approaches that would revise the services to make them meaningful. There is great ferment in the american jewish Community Over All aspects of jewish living but mainly in the religious area. It would be very unfortunate if this were to pass Indianapolis by. So far it has passed us by. We have Hopes though for the future.

School thanks Post Center planning readers for to set a letter of thanks to the readers of the Post and opinion was received this week from the teachers and pupils of sharia school at Shilkun Aroni Petach Tikvah for providing the to set. The letter reads a we teachers and pupils of sharia school want to thank you for the television set we Are Able to use in our everyday studies. It is much of a help. We enjoy the programs and we use it a the letter was signed by one of the pupils and by Zeev Levinson the headmaster. The project was an idea of Harold and Barbara Chetkow former Indianapolis residents now living in Israel. They Learned of the need for a to set at the school attended by pupils of parents from Oriental countries unable to provide the necessary funds. In Israel schools Are on their own As far As buying a to set even though regular school programs Are broadcast by Israel daily. In most cases the parents contribute the funds to Purchase the to set but the Chetkow Learned that such was not possible at the sharia school. They wrote a letter to the Post and opinion outlining the situation and Over a period of several months readers contributed the necessary $575, and the set was purchased and is now being used As the letter states.
