vacation — but some vacations they take!
But G-d does not go on vacation at all.
Neither He nor His Torah fade out of
the scene, out of contact.
It is important to remember that as we make the
transition into summer spirit.
Whatever our plans are, it is vital to recall that Torah's demands on us are
not lessened during July and August.
Standards of t'zniut (modesty) are not
decreased due to the heat.
Expectations as to frequency and times of prayer are not
modified by travel plans.
The human mind is a delicate instrument, and it begins to
atrophy very rapidly when its synapses are not used; Jewish intellectual exercise is
as essential during the summer as
it is during the other ten months of the year.

Incidentally, if you are looking for some fascinating and challenging Jewish
reading for the summer, I would recommend any one of three recent books which have
begun to chart a new area of application of halacha--of business practice and
ethics.

and Jewish Law" by Rabbi Dr. Aaron Levine of Yeshiva
(Ktav, 1980), and its sequel,
"Economics and Jewish Law" by the same author (Ktav, 1987).

These two books constitute a fascinating beginning to what will certainly
become an increasingly important area of halachic study.

"With All Your Possessions" by Dr. Meir Tamari of Bar Ilan University
(Free Press, 1987), subtitled "Jewish Ethics and Economic Life", covers
much of the same material as Dr. Levine's book but makes its own distinct
contribution to the literature of business ethics.

Of

in May was our annual Journal Dinner and
that, too, became a Yom Tov as almost 400
people celebrated the birthday of Lincoln
Square Synagogue and the contributions of
Mark and Shirley Wald and Amos and Miry am
Alter.
The warmth that
emanated from the
ceremony in the sanctuary was
greater than the air conditioning could
handle and the words of our Rabbi and the
honorees' own children made crystal-clear
the
appropriateness of this tribute.
Another aspect of that appropriateness was

The evening started downstairs with
cocktails and hors-d'oeuvres in the Haines
Ballroom, accompanied by a first at LSS:

The food
was varied from the required smoked

to

After a lovely
cocktail hour we moved upstairs for the
formal part of the program.
The honorees spoke movingly and well
about the LSS community.
Miryam Alter and
Mark Wald may have been outdone by their
respective offspring. Yoel Alter delivered
a fine d'var Torah
and his sister Leah
spoke wistfully but with palpable pride
about Amos's frequent absences from home to
do good deeds.
Debra and Dina Wald, third
generation LSS members of the Wald family,
spoke eloquently of their parents' love and
guidance and helped those present better
understand what special people Mark and
Shirley are. Rabbi Berman spoke about the
contributions of both families and how they
represent the best in our Community.

•During Daylight Savings Time it is our practice to have 2 services on Friday evening for
Mincha and Kabbalat Shabbat Those who attend the 1st Service should make sure that
Shabbat candles be lit no later than 25 minutes after the beginning of the 1st service to
coincide with the congregation's recital of the Psalm for Shabbat Once the congregation says
this Psalm. Shabbat has officially begun for the worshippers and their families
Shabbat concludes Saturday night one hour after the official candle lighting time on
Friday afternoon
