I NEXT EDITION April 16, 1961 Deadline:• April 3 (TODAY) \\; I 1 MONDAY, APRIL 3, 1961-- NISAN 17, 5721 SEATTLE, WASHINGTON THE ORIGIN OF THE HAGGADAH (Copyright, 1961. Jewish Telegraphic Agency. Inc.) By BEN GALLOB If you want to know the bibli- cal basis of your observance of Passover, you,will find it--ap- propriately-in tile Book of Ex- odus where two commandments are listed. One instructs the Jewish father to "tell thy son in that day, saying: It is because of that which the Lord did for me when I came forth out of Egypt." The other passage deals with the eating of the Paschal 'lamb, the lamb which the Chin dren of Israel sacrificed just be- fore they began their great journey to freedom. This pas- sage specifies the requirement of the eating of the Paschal lamb and suggests that the chil- dren will ask what the cere- mony means and adds that the parents are to explain it. No one is certain when the celebration of Passover began but what is certain is that it was a lot different from the present ritual. The original form probably e0nsisted of the eating of the Paschal lamb, as or- dained, and the narration of the story of the flight from Egypt by the head of the family. There was no formal text--the Hagga- dah was yet to come--and the head of the house presumably deeid'ed--how he would tell the Exodus story and what he would put into it. Presently there developed a desire for a more uniform pro- cedure for the Passover meal, particularly during the period of the Second Temple in ancient Israel, roughly from the fifth century Before the Common Era to the first century of our era. At that time, the daily, Sabbath and"estival prayers were %e- ginning to assume a standard form. The first step toward a stand- ardiz-ed ritual came from a chapter in the Mishnah which ; provides for the four cups of the Passover benediction and gives the form for the four questions. The form of the questions in the Mishnah indicates that the en- tire ceremony was performed at the end of the Passover mal. Rabbi Gamaliel specified thai the symbols of the Paschal teas1 the lamb, the unleavened bread and the bitter herbs-- were to be mentioned in the ritual• To this Was added a thanksgiving for liberation from the Pharaoh and the reciting of the Hallel.Psalms, numbers 113 to 118. By the time the Mishnah was compieted, in aboutthe year 200 ' of'the CommOn ra, the narra- : .

"Israel's 13th anniversary holds special significance for us," Mr. Franco said. "Israel's Bar Mitzvah year comes at a time when the young nation is emerging into full maturity as an independent country, and we are proud of the magnificent ac- complishments of Israel's people during this period, and of what they have been able to do to build their nation as a haven for the oppressed and rejected bf other lands." "We can be proud, too, that more than two-thirds of the nearly one million immigrants Israel has taken in since 1948 are today self-supporting, productive citizens of their new country," Mr. Franco said. "But we must continue to help so that the remaining third--some 320,000 immigrants, can be fully absorbed as fast as possible• Give an extra gift to commemorate Israel's Bar Mitzvah."
