Best Wishes For A Jovous Passover Holiday Serving Columbus, Dayton, Oentral and .. nwfj ""ri^^'oiDnoiHoa./ Vol. 41, No. 14 FRIDAY. APRIL 5, 1963 — 11 NISAN, 5723 39 Devoted to Amfriean •nd Jawtin ld*ali ETERNAL VALUES OF PESAGH OBSERVANCE By DR. HELEN HIRSCH The welding of people into a peo¬ ple takes place at its deliverance. The Almighty said to Moses: "The feast of unleavened bread shalt thou keep; seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bfead, as I com¬ manded thee, at the time appoint¬ ed in the month of Abib ... for in it thou earnest out of Egypt" (Exo¬ dus 23, M-17).

The ex¬ pressive symbolism of the service needs an Intelligent explanation not only In relation to hoary anti¬ quity, bul also in relation to cur¬ rent eents. For many are our op¬ pressed brethren scattered all over the globe for which freedom Is still to dawn.
