It Is possible, too, that the conflict acioss thu tea will llguro largely In the messages. On account of the toll of war there are many here waiting with much foreboding for greetings which may nevui come. It will not bo necessary for the letter carrier to ring tho bell or knock' at the door of the homes In the Ghetto. Tho anxious ones theie havo been waiting too long for the eve of the New Year. Those loved one abroad who do not write at anj other time never forget to send gieetimiH today.

Tomorrow night at sundown, in accord ance with an old Jewish custom, the be loved Jewl'sh grandfather or the oldest member of the family blesses the rest of the family before leaving for the syn ugogue. This custom Is observed in every orthodox home throughout the world. At the .sinagoguo all will kneel In prayer, giving thanks for gifts of the la'st year and asking divine Jrfesulng fot tho ensu ing year. The obot vance of the Jewish New Year as u holy be.-i3on Is commanded In two passages of the Kio Hooks of Moses. In neither passage Is there any specific com mand as to how tho day Is to be olaerved beyond tho injunctions to blow the trum pet, to hold h holy convocation and to engage In no servilo occupation. The day is the first of the seventh month or t'io day of tho new moun of that month. The new moon was observed as holy season by the Jew's of old; the seventh month the sev week, month sIcmfleanLe of far holler import than the other new moon days of the year. The injunction to blow the trumpet on this day wa's to call the people to lemem btnnce before tho Lord. This ceremony of blowing the "shofar" became tho cen tra! figure of the elaborate tellgious ser vice conducted on the day. It is the prevailing idea that on this day God weighs men's actions In the scales of justice. New Year''s Day In the passing of the centuries has thus come to embody the great religious Ideas of divine Justice and humun jcspon'sl-bllity.
