WARTIME GRAY The Jewish New Year, better known by its Hebrew name, Rosh ha-Shanah, will begin this evening at sun-down and will be celebrated simultaneously by Jews the world over for a 45-hour period, thus bringing the festival to its official close at sunset. Hagerstown Jewry will usher in the New Year tonight at 6:30 p. m., when Baruch E. Rabinowitz, resident Rabbi, will officiate. Assisting the Rabbi will be David H. Panitz, of Baltimore, supervisor of the Petach Tikvah Hebrew School and a member of the graduate faculty of the department of Semitics at Johns Hopkins University. "The Need • for a Re-Created Adam" will be the topic of the sermon this evening. On Thursday morning the subject will be "Shoulders Back, Heads Up, Eyes Open." by the Rabbi; Thursday evening, "The Voice of the Living Corpse," Mr. Panitz; _Friday morning, "The Cherubim of the Ark of the Covenant," the Rabbi. One of the oldest of the Jewish festivals, Rosh ha-Shanah dates back to Biblical times when the holiday was known as "the day of the blowing of the horn" and "the memorial of the blowing of the trumpet." The horn or strumpet referred to is the Shofar, usually made of a ram's horn, which was used in ancient times as a rallying charge or a call to battle. It invariably had the effect of strengthening the morale and elevating the spirits of tlios© who were brought together by its reverberating echoes. This holiday is also known as the "Day of Judgment," when Jewish tradition has it that the Lord gathers all of his ministering angels together for a prolonged session of the Heavenly. Court. The "record books" are scanned and the record of every person is revealed to all who attend this conclave. Since ancient Jews believed that God himself reviews the case of each mortal and passes judgment, it is customary for Jews to examine their actions and resolve- to cleanse their souls. Primarily a synagogue holiday, the outstanding Rosh ha-Shauah ceremonies are to be found in connection with the prayers which are recited from a special prayer book, known as the Mahzor. There- are special melodies for these prayers which are chanted by the Rabbi and his assistants, all of whom wear white gowns which symbolize the purity of soul that is the ultimate goal. After the services good wishes for the New Year are extended.
