QUESTION: What are "shay
ANSWER: Torn or discarded
pages of volumes of holy writings
such as prayer books, Bibles, Holy
Scrolls, Talmudic books, etc., are
called “shaymos.” Technically the
word “shaymos” means “names.”
These fragments or discarded
entities are called “shaymos” be
cause usually one will find “G-d’s
name” appearing on them. Thus
they are considered holy to a cer
tain extent and are not to be dis
carded like refuse.
QUESTION: What is done with

brought to the synagogue where
they are stored in special places.
After a sizeable collection is at

monies were held in times of
plague and pestilence or when
there was a great draught. Many
American synagogues observe this
burial ceremony some time close
to the High Holidays.
QUESTION: Why is this done?
ANSWER: The logic is self
evident. People who are ill, or a
community stricken with plagues,
or people before the divine bar of
Judgment on the High Holidays
are like fragments from the Book
of Life. Those who have sinned
have detached themselves from
the Book of Law. By treating
these literary fragments with dig
nified burial and preservation, we
show the care and regard we have
for the letters of the law even
after they have been torn and
discarded. We ask the Lord to
show this same mercy toward us
at a time when we appear like
shredded fragments of humanity.
How To Hold
More Firmly in Place
Do your false teeth annoy and
embarrass by slipping, dropping
or wobbling when you eat, laugh
or talk? Just sprinkle a little
FASTEETH on your plates. This
alkaline (non-acid) powder holds
false teeth more firmly and more
comfortably. No gummy, gooey,
pasty taste or feeling. Does not
sour. Checks “plate odor” (den
ture breath.) Get FASTEETH to
day at any drug store.

In line with the broadened graduate program of Yeshiva University the
Psychological Clinic, an integral unit of Yeshiva’s School of Education and
Community Administration, has expanded its community services with the
launching of a psychological testing program for children of Jewish schools.
(Above).A seven-year-old pupil of a neighboring elementary all-day school
is being tested. In line with the now procedure the entire kindergarten and
first-year pupils were similarly tested to determine their capability to carry on
the school’s program. At the same time, these tests make it possible for the
child’s teacher to guide each one In the realization of his potentialities.
These tests are administered by graduate students of psychology at
Yeshiva University who thus acquire practical experience. Hitherto the Clinic
concerned itself with individual problems providing dir-;nosis and therapy
for the same. Dr. Julius B. Mailer is Director of the Clinic, whose staff includes
psychologists,- psychiatrists, physicians and therapists.
