Wanted:- Men and Women of Vision

The fact that the Jewish
people of the entire country
generally, and that of Miami
in particular is beset with
numerous problems is not nec-
essarily a reflection on the
vitality or status of our po
pie. Every living, growing,
struggling organism has
S problems to solve, and only
the dead are completely at
peace. The tasks that lie a-
head of every Jewish Com-
munity need present no cause
for alarm or pessimism, pro-
vided they are faced with
courage and devotion.
S There are, of course, num-
erous problems that press up
on us and clamor for action
S I do not under-value the im-
portaee of any of them, but
I maintain that there is got
h one 9f them that is more bas-
ic to our welfare, more entitl-
ed to our energy and devotion,
than the problem of educa-
| tion.

life is a hurly-burly of im-
mediate demands. Every mo-
'" ment bears its own burden on
its back that needs to be lift-
ed; every day brings its own
tale of problems that need to
be solved. Inevitably, the in-
dividual adopts the philoso-
phy of: "Sufficient unto the
day is the evil thereof" Little
if any, thought is given to the
Problems of the future by the
large majority. The present
r consumes all our thought and
Now, education is essential-
Ily a problem of the future. It
concerns the generation that
is still in its formative period.
What is aore natural, there-
fore, than the tendency to
negleeotr postpone any effort
towads its solution? It takes
vismo to appreciate the basic
importance of education. And

It is the Jewish spiritual
heritage that has preserved
us. This has been the elan
vital, the life force that has
prevented us from falling
prey to all the destructive a-
gents by which we have been
surrounded. Without this
heritage the Jewish people is
The Jewish generations of
the past have been profound-
ly, almost sub-consciously, a-
ware of this truth. Therefore,
throughout the generatibs of
our past, the ambition of
every Jewish parent was not
that his son should become a
great conqueror, but a man
of great learning.
Has this appreciation of
what has kept us alive meow
died among us? Do ye no
longer know what. we have
lived by? Can we no longer
recognize the bread which has
sustained us for twenty cen-
turies of exile and martyr-
dom? The trasmisn of omur
i lectual and piriaLhe-
itage to our young, is the
problem that tobehes our life
most profoundly. Even one
who has but a smatter'in
knowledge of Jewi sh hisat
must admit this. The ques..
-tion that faces us, therefore,
is: Are there in our midst, in

ish community of Greater Mi-

' The inherent vanity in us
makes us take pride in the
high reputation and achieve-
ments of those who are, or
may be, identified in the pub-
lic mind with our group. We
believe to be sharing in the
glory of the great man by
claiming him as our own. This
trait is universal in human
character. Amongst ourselves
we judge each other upon our
merits, as those merits ap-
pear to us, but in relation to
other groups we consider our-
selves as part of a definitive
class or nation, and anything
we do individually seems to
reflect upon the good or bad
name of the whole.
That accounts for the fact
that we recognize and eulogize
our own the more the greater
their rfame amongst others,
for they seem to enhance our
own prestige. Many a great
writer became known to his
own people only after he had
been translated into foreign
tongues and found favor
The reverse is not always
the case. The great man is not
so eager to be identified with
his people--unless his people
happens to be great or rich
pr powerful on its own ac-
count and thereby adds
strength to his standing in
the world. The weaker the
position of the people as a
- whole the wider the breach
between the mass and the sa-
lient personalities who have
attained world renown,--bar-
ring occasional exceptions
here and there.
It is perfectly natural for
the Jews to take pride in the
8eoh1ismMaft of their
more fortunate or more tal-
ented brethren in foreign
fields. More so probably than
with any other people, for the
reason that we have been for
so many centuries a small
mimyity amidst usually hos-
tile majorities and have had
nothing better to feed our
vanity or to reinforce our sta-
tus than the acknowledged
deeds of great Jews. And so
it has come about that we are
,erceively eager to find ra-
cil affinity in any man of
note, irrespective of his atti-
tude towards the Jewish peo-
ple. His mere descent is suf-
fcient if he is big enough to
directly. We claim Kari Marx
as Jew though he was every-
thing but that, and now we

Few of us do liketo think!
Statistics indicate that only
five out of every hundred do
make an attempt to fashion
thought. It's too bad! Men-
tal laziness makes peculiar
creatures out of us. Our minds
are closed. The windows of
our soul are thus never open-
ed. We continue with our
prejudices from year to year.
Mentally we do not grow.
There are many practices in
Judaism which are of a fetich
and no-Jewish character. We
have "holinized" them and
hallowed them. But they are
meaningless under the light
of a reasonable faith. Then,
too, we lave our prejudices
about the goy which ought to
be cast aside. We ought to
cultivate the open mind. As
Jews our aristocracy is based
on intellect and open-minded-

asked him. "A shilling," he
said. "Where?" they asked.

asked him.
"Im not such a fool as all

quite clean!"

The talented Parnamunt
stars, Nancy Carroll and Gary
Cooper, making their first ap-
pearence together, play the
leading 'roles. During the
last ten minutes of this filln
(which are audible) Qary
Cooper is heard to speak for
the first time in his screen
career, and Nancy Carroll, as
a member f a musical com-
edy chorus, sings a new song
hit, "A Precious Little Thing
Called Love."
"The Shopworn Angel," a-
dapted from Dana Burnett's
well known short story, is
first cl as entertainment.
Briefly, it tells the story of
Daisy Heath, sophisticated
chorus girl kept in luxury by
a Mr. Bailey; wealthy man-
about.town, who finds herself
falling in love with Bill Petti-
grew, an awkward, lumbering
doughboy from Texas.
Miss Carroll, whose popu-
larity increases with each new
picture, gives a splendid per-
formance as Daisy Heath, and
Gary Cooper as Bill Pettigrew
also does god. work. Others
in the east who give fine per-
formanies .are Paul Lukas
and Roscoe Karns. "The
Shopworn Angel" was direct-
ed by Richard Wallace.
On the stage our new per-
sonality leader, Don Pedro,
and his Olympians present en-
tirely new stage band presen-
tation assisted by Jeanne Ged-

The attitude of the Jews of
America towards Jewish lead,.
ership and representation..ha
changed quite perceptibly dur-
ing the last nine or ten years,
and the change may accurate-
ly be described 8a having pass-
ed from the gildante of social
prestige to influence of an in-
tellectual character. In for-
mer years representatives of
the early settlers, men of so-
cial standing, wealth, and
prior claims .to recognition,
acted as our spokesmen and
shaped the policies of Jewish
leadership with little or no re-
gard to the ideas and beliefs
animating the Jewish popula-
tion in different cities. For

one iota because of the many
Jews lost to us in foreign
fields. Neither have we ever
succeeded in bringing back in-
to our fold any great Jew just
because we showed him mark-
ed appreciation. A Bergson
will not do a thing for the
Jews and he will -ndt come
nearer to us for our compli-
ments: If-anything, he will
resent that we insist on claim-
ing him as -ours.
It will be to owr greater
credit and larger good if we
apply 'the measure 'of mnPli-
ness to every Jew who has
made a mark in the world. In-
stead of looking for the 1Jew

isolationn to the mourners to
feel that the death of their
beloved one was preordained
and that nothing could fore-
stall it. Thus they rational-
ize their misfortunes. Others
console themselves for their
'misdeeds with a sister expres-
sion, "God made me so."
This presupposes a useless-
ness to fight against the ex-
ternal power supposedly re-
sponsible for all their actions.'
This philosophy of life-or
rather, death, for life implies
a dynamic .inner progress-is
the cause of the retardation
of the growth of a religion
embracing a half-billion peo-
ple, Hinduism. The Hindu is
born into a definite caste and
he knows that he is unable to
be elevated into a higher caste
as l5ng as he lives. There be-
ing nothing to hope for in this
life, he must per force become
vitally interested in the after-
life. Then comes'the self-di-
rected question, "Of what use
is the body if it serves pur-
pose in this world"? Receiv-
ing a negative reply, he pro-
ceeds to torture his useless
body in every, conceivable
way. This is the inevitable
results of fatalism fatalism
carried to logical extrpnes. It
marks a disregard for ife, and
by stressing the unproduc-
tiveness of the human will,
ends in a surrender to all life's
currents and cross-currents.
Such a docrtine is quite
dangerous, for it implies the
utter uselessness of human ef-
fort and aspiration, What-
ever occurs is spre-ordained or
fated. But we have no right
to blame God for all that hap-
pens. God gave us senses
and ,peprr orgasa to use,
not 'toabuse. If we abuse
them, we suffer the conse-
quences. We have no excuse
to offer, for Qod also gave us
a heart and mind to help us
to differentiate between right
and wrong. We read in the
Bible that God punished Mir-
iam with lepros$ for abusing
her God-given power of
speech with a tirade against
Moses. Thus, man, not God,
is ruler of his destiny. Man,
not fate, is responsible for
what he Is.. You might argue
that we aren't all blessed with
equal opportunities and. the
same equipment for life's bat-

chance. If, however, you
seek the true causes, you will
find that Menvironmentp, ine-
qualities, pijutices and. apti-
tudes for evil are almost man-
made. *

one is truly captain of his soul' I

would be of tremendous ad-

don't go right. He will find
that much could have been

nothing must be. He will
realize that he is not even cer-

that he is awake,and not
dreaming. He comes to know
that if he races his car on a
public highway, he might be
killed, and his relatives, if it'
actually occurred, cannot con-
vince me that he was "fated"
to be killed at that particular
time. It is somewhat corn-
forting to make some other
