QUESTION: Why is the sev
enth day of the 'Succoth" (Taber
nacles) festival called "Hoshanoh-
Rabbah" occurring this year on
Monday, October 24?
ANSWER: All during the week
of the Succoth holiday special
prayers asking for the Lord’s
help are recited. These prayers
are called “Hosha-Nos” which
means “Help-please.” On the
seventh day of the festival many
of these prayers are chanted, in
stead of one special one chosen

for each day. This being the
case the seventh day is called
“Hoshana-Rabbah” which means
the day on which the Hoshanas
are chanted.
QUESTION: Why is this day so
important that so many prayers
are chanted in the synagogue?
ANSWER: The Talmud stated
that the water supply of the
world is judged on Succoth. This
being the final day of Succoth—
it becomes the final day of Judg
ment for the water supply. Other
Rabbinic sources indicate that
this d&y is the final day of judg
ment for the human race. While
the judgment is written on Rosh
Hashonah and signed on Yom
Kippur, mankind has until this
seventh day of the Succoth festi
val to seek forgiveness and abso
lution. Thus the cantor again
dresses in a white robe for the
morning prayers. It used to be a
custom to blow the shofar on this
day for the same reason.
Disquieting Report
BY NATHAN ZIPRIN
The American Jewish Congress,
through its commission on law
and social action, reports that the
past two decades witnessed a
fifty per cent decline in the en
rollment of Jewish students in
medical schools throughout the
country.
Since figures tell the story in
bolder significance than words, it
is pertinent ,to point out that
while the year 1936 showed a re
cord of 21.5 per cent of Jewish
graduates from medical schools,
the combined figures of 1937-1939
showed a percentage of 15.8 while
the years 1942-1946 showed a de
cline to 10.3 per cent. One need
not be a mathematical genius to

conclude that if this decline re
mains unchecked it will not take
long before the medical profes
sion will be “Judenrein.”
The situation stems from a vi
cious anti-Jewish quota system
which arbitrarily rejects qualifi
cations for race and religion, a
system which is as un-American
as it is vicious. From the long
range point of view the evil may
in the end be surmounted by edu
cation and inter-faith movements.
But the problem is one of imme
diate urgency and its solution
cannot be postponed for the cen
turies.
The idea of distinct, even if
non-sectarian Jewish professional
schools does not appeal to us. But
we are beginning to wonder
whether, under the cirmunstan
ces, the time isn’t ripe for Jewish
leadership to begin thinking in
different terms.
