QUESTION: What is a
“chalet ?”
ANSWER: The slaughtering
knife used by the “shochet” in the
ritual slaughtering of animals and
fowl is commonly referred to as
a “chalef.”
QUESTION: Why is the name
attributed to this instrument?
ANSWER: This question leads
to a number of interesting obser
vations. Technically, the term
“chalef” is an old Semitic word
meaning “to be smooth” or “to
C ut." What is even more inter
esting is the interpretation of ' the
word “chaief” to denote the
slaughtering knife by Rabbinic

Hi it!
B /
sources who claim that its com
ponent letters (Chet, Lamed and
Peh) stand for the requirements
of a proper Jewish slaughterer.
According to one version the
“Chet” is the initial which repre
sents "chochom” which means
| "wise,” indicating that the true
Jewish slaughterer should be a
learned man; “Lamed” denotes
the numerical value of 30 which
| indicates that he should be at
least 30 years of age; and “Peh,"
j which has the numerical value of
'SO, stands for the fact that he
should not be allowed to slaughter
i once he reaches the age of an
octogenarian.

July Science Illustrated
Reveals Story of Israel’s
Scientific War
Despite the rattle and explosions
of gunfire, the men of science in
the Weizmann Institute of Science
at Rehovoth, Israel, are pursuing
their own special enemy—the
desert, according to a story in the
Science Illustrated magazine for
July.
Headed by the eminent scientist
and newly elected president of
Israel, Dr. Chaim Weizmann. the
Weizmann Institute has the task
of pushing back the desert, a ma
lignant wasteland covering more
than one third of Palestine and
much of the Near East. When
this effort is victorious, the area s
productive capacity and popula
tion may experience a boom simi
lar to biblical times.
With 54 researchers from all
over the world now employed, the
Institute is at present tackling
three major objectives; First, the
search for crops suitable for the
salty land of Israel; Second, the
commercial development of those
crops; and Third, the transporta
tion of water to the desert and the
reduction of the salinity of the
water already there.
