DAY OF ATONEMENT

By G. Gottheil

To Thee we give ourselves today,
SForgetful of the world outside;
We carry in Thy house, 0 Lord,
From eventide to eventide.

From Thy all-searching, righteous eye
Our deepest heart can nothing hide;
It crieth up to Thee for peace
From eventide to eventide.

SWho could endure, shouldst Thou, 0 God,
As we deserve, for ever chide?
We therefore seek thy pardoning grace
SFrom eventide to eventide.

S0 May we lay to heart how swift
The years of lifedo onward glide;
SSo learn to live that we may see
Thy life at our life's eventide.

Brandeis Inter-
views B r i t i sh
Prime Minister

American Zionists have de-
cided to demand from Ram-
say MacDonald, upon his ar-
rival in New York, a state.
ment regarding Great Brit-
ain's policy towards Palestine,
the "Evening Standard" says
that it understands.
Commenting editorially, the
paper states that "American
Zionists are confident of per-
suading MacDonald to declare
that the Mandate will be re-
tained and that Jewish sett-
lers in Palestine will continue
to receive favorable considera-
tion. Behind the hope of these
expectations lies a menace. If
MacDonald does not makeUtp
his mind in the desired sense,
he is threatened with the
same kind of reception in
America as a British Premier
would have received from the
Irish population of New York
in the days before the Irish
settlement."
Since the appearance of the
above news item it appears
that Chaim Weitzman, head
of the world Zionist Organi-
zation had induced Justice
Louise D. Brandeis to inter-
view Prime Minister MacDon-
ald on the Palestine situation.

BTo My ay of Thinking
By abbi Israel H. Weisfeld


Rabbi Israel H. Weisfeld


Please take the following
letter:
Miss V. Tracy,
Head Librarian,
Flagler Memorial Library,
City.
My Dear Miss Tracy:
About two weeks ago we
discussed the advisability and
probability of obtaining a
large and representative num-
ber of books on Jewish topics
written in the English lan-
guage for the Flagler Mem-
orial Library. After some talk
you very kindly promised in
behalf of the library to pur-
chase those books I suggested,
both standard and current.

You even considered plac-
ing a number of attractive
Jewish books on a table in a
conspicuous spot in the li-
brary so that the attentionof
the subscribers would be im-
mediately attracted to them
and their interest stimulated.
Needless to state, I wish to
sincerely thank you for your
prompt response and eager-
ness to cooperate. It was a
genuine pleasure to have my
request so graciously receiv-
ed and so readily acquiesced
to.

I wonder whether you fully
realize the potential effects of
the inclusion of such books
amongst the library's vol-
umes.
There is no poison so deadly
as intolerencee, prejudice, or
bigotry. And no anti-toxin so
guaranteed, so effective as
knowledge! When that hydra-
headed cobra race preju-
dice rears its ungainly heads
it requires but one decisive
stroke of the sharp blade of
knowledge to forever silence
its maddening hissing. The
highly cultured racial bigot is
the rare exception, who em-
ploys his perverted talents to
stir the ignorant populace in-
to a frenzied state, and incite
them to rash acts of cruelty
and shame.

The intelligent person, fort-
ified with a working knowl-
edge of the literature, religion,
ethics, customs, culture, phil-
osophy, wit, humor, folklore
of the people generally con-
demned, will regard with
scorn and contempt any
wholesale denunciation of that


people. Knowing that a nation
like an individual is composed
of good and evil, he will coolly
and judiciously examine any
and all charges aimed at that
people. Finding these charges
inane and false, he wil be fill-
ed with righteous indignation
and will vehemently protest
these charges in unmistak-
able terms, and will brand
these charges as unmitigated
falsehoods, filthy blotches on
the escutcheon of civilization,
enlightenment'.

Libraries are the house of
records of man's mental ac-
complishments. They are the
self-service restaurants for
the mind. They are a haven,
alike, for the formally educat-
ed and for him, who, denied
theadvantages of carefully
planned education, dips hap-
hazardly into the deep caul-
drons of wisdom and learn-
ing.

Some day when people will
give the careful attention to
their minds they now accord
their bodies; when mental cal-
isthenics will become as pop-
ular as physical exercises,
when the time set aside for
worthwhile reading will equal
that universally set aside for
gossipping, facials, quarrell-
ing, amusement hunting, card
playing, and just plain down-
right reasonless wasting of
time-when that day dawns,
libraries will be as numerous
as beauty parlors, theatres,
barber shops and haberdash-
ery establishments. Nor will
they look forlorn, deserted.

The library's acquisition of
these books will mean much.
It will mean that the Jew will
be able to obtain books of par-
ticular interest to him. On the
one hand he will be able to
refer to standard and authori-
tative books on problems in
Jewish life, while, on the oth-
Jd hand, the current books
will keep him abreast of the
tendencies in contemporary
Jewish life.
To the non-Jew it will be an
unusual opportunity to ac-
quaint himself with the his-
tory and philosophy of the
Jew as self-expressed in his
various writings, his way of
thinking, his outlook upon
life as distinguished from that
of the other people. To learn
the why and wherefore of
this peculiar little people that
dauntless braved the engulf-
ing waves, that laughed at
those dangers that sapped the
course of and ultimately down-
ed his older and apparently
stronger brothers.
All this and more the read-
ing of these books can accom-
plish. It can, finally, become
the means of introducing even
greater friendships and har-
mony between the Jew and
his gentile friend and neigh-
bor. It can and will give one a
clearer and better insight in-
to the ether's life and the


thoughts and ideals motivat-
ing it.

KIDDUSH HA-SHEM

By EPHRAIM GOLDBERG, Translator
e_~., -~~~----------


A bloody hand had stretch-
ed out and plucked the eleven
lustrous stars which guided
the pathway to peaceful pi-
ety, to the strog faith in the
God of Abraham, to the soul
sacrifice for his Torah.
In thoughtful reflection of
them, a father killed his own
daughter, smilingly; and with
a lacerated throat breathed
gratingly his last Shma Isroel
With the memory of
those martyrs in their minds,
thousands faced death rather
than to blaspheme their God.
In a dark dungeon were
locked the eleven martyrs-
the lustrous stars. Their
hands and feet were forged
with heavy chains, and from
behind the thick wall they
could hear the dull knocks in
the wood, which was being
cut up and made ready for
their being burned at the
stake.
Not one of them shed a
tear. Not one of them breath-
ed a sigh. In a circle on the
damp ground they were sit-
ting the gray, old Goan,
Rabbi Asher, in the center,
and around him his ten sons,
all learning Torah .... From
somewhere, in a corner of the
dungeon, presumably, two
small eyes suddenly flashed
forth and immediately disap-
peared. A large spider was
hanging in the center of its
gray web, breathing gratingly.
The day waned and the
night approached. The dark-
ness fell so heavily that one
was invisible to the other.
The gray, old man was still
engaged in a sagacious dispu-
tation of the Talmud with his
children. When one of them
won an argument by his pro-
found and convincing idea, the
Goan's face beamed with joy.
On the morrow the church
bells would be ringing, calling
to the great holiday the
auto de' fe of eleven sinful
souls; and to the offensive
souls it was a greater holiday
still, a greater joy-the joy
of weary seafarers who feel
they are about to reach a sea-
port.
A few hours before dawn all
voices became silent. With the
words of the holy Torah on
their lips, the condemned-to-
death martyrs fell asleep-in
the center the gray, old Goan,
Rabbi Asher, and round him
his ten sons.
There was a harsh creak
as the heavy iron door swung
on its rusty hinges. A cold
wind sneaked in. And a tall
man with long, white, curly
hair, robed in a white satin
claik and a white, gold-trim-
That is my hope for the ac-
complishment of these books.
....Accept my thanks and sin-
cerest hopes for the growth
of the library. May it have
an ever broadening effect up-
on its subscribers and users.
Sincerely,
Israel H. Weisfeld


A Happy and
New Year to all.


med shtreimel entered slowly.
So lightly did he tread no
footsteps were heard. He bent
down to Rabbi Asher, and,
gently waking the Goan from
his slumber, said:
"Tomorrow you all will die
the death of martyrdom! .
So is the decree. However,
one of you must get away. Be-
fore daybreak he shall be on
the outside of the dungeon,
and he will run with all of his
might there . .where he will
live in safety and serve God.
So choose who among you
shall make the escape!" . .
With a cry the Goan awoke.
It was pitch dark. Groping
about, he reached the tightly-
bolted door. There was no
trace of the stranger who was
robed in white.
At the cry of the old man
his ten sons awoke with a
shudder. On one of them was
still the reflection of a heav-
enly dream ... He had dream-
ed of the fighting queens he
saw who, in bejeweled crowns,
were learning the law from
the angels.
"Father, dear, what is the
matter asked all of the ten
sons in one blending, frighten-
ed voice.
And in the tumult runp
forth the Goan's voice:
"One of us must escape! ..
It's the will of God. Choose
one among you! .. .
"You, the most sublime of
us all shall rescue yourself.
And we will die." They re-
plied quickly.
The gray, old Goan shook
his head to and fro, and the
groaning of his chains split
the air. At last he said:
"Throughout my life I was
always seeking, wherever I
could, the opportunity of ful-
filling even the smallest act
of benevolence. From early
morning till late at night, my
body and soul stood ready to
serve the ruler of the whole
world. And now-when I am
old and weak and my days
on this earth are numbered,
which days I would gladly give
to Him for offering-now, I
say, you wish that I rescue
my life?"
His ten sons were silent. No
one insisted that their joint
plan be carried out.

For a long while the t
sons were silent; then the old.

were lost in deep silence
They were waiting for the

From afar resounded the

Rabbi Asher.
Ten hearts were beating
violently in the dark dungeon.
Each one sending forth a si.

"Ruler of the Universel
Cast me not off. Put me not
to shame!"
"We shall choose," repeated
the Goan.

"Yes, father."

the oldest, "is your common.

The Message of
Yom Kippur

By J. H. Hertz


Chief Rabbi British Empire

The Day of Atonement is
the most wonderful monument
of the spiriutal life in Israel,
In large letters, so that even
he that runs may read, does
Yom Kippur spell forth the
fundamentals of Judaism, of
religion, of the higher life of
man. Sin is not an evil power
whose chains the children of
flesh must helplessly drag to-
wards a weary tomb. We can
always shake off its yoke; and
what is more, we need never
assume its yoke. An ancient
fable tells us of distant oceans
with mountainous rocks of
magnet of such terrific power
that wreck and ruin befell any
ship venturing near them. In-
stantly the iron nails would
fly out of the ship, bolts and
fastenings would be torn away
by that magnetic force; the
vessel would become nothing
more than so many planks of
wood, and fall'on' board fall a
prey to the'. hungry waters.
Sins there are that, likewise,
unhinge all our stays of char-
acter, rob us f: the restraints
of past habit ibnd education,
and leave us helpless play-
things on the billows of temp-
tation and passion. Yet a man
is the pilot of his life's barque,
and can at all times steer it
so as never to come near
those mountains of destruc-
tion and death.
And, secondly, there is an
,T,. ry. for man's sins. We
may repair the ravages of sin,
.rebuild the shifting founda-
tions of character, and join
again the sundered strands of
our spiritual fabric. We spurn
the old pagan fatalism which
declares that there is no for-
giveness for sin. Nature pro-
vides some escape from phy-
sical disease; shall the soul,
injured by temptation's fire,
scarred by sin, not be able to
recover its pristine strength
and beauty? No matter how
harsh nature and man may
seem, he God of Eternal
Right holds a deep pity that
can atone and save, bury not
only ain btits grave and
graveyard ith itt

The Message of

Yom Kippur

(Continued from Page 3)

sin, must itself essay to for-
sake the Way of Sorrow and
proceed on the Way of Salva-
tion. This is the most splen-
did, the most momentous fact
in human life: that though
man cannot always even half
control his destiny, God has
given the reins of man's con-
duct altogether into his hands.
No wonder that the Syna-
gogue has ever looked upon
this day of prayer, fasting,
and humiliation as a festival.
A generation or two ago our
forefathers stood robed in
white in the synagogue, dur-


ing the entire Atonement Day.
Originally these white gar-
ments were not worn as re-
minders of the grave; they
were an outward sign of the
festal character of this Day,
appointed for life's spiritual
renewal. 'When men are sum-
moned before an earthly rul-
er', says the Jerusalem Tal-
mud, 'to defend themselves
against some charge, they ap-
pear downcast and dressed in
black like mourners. Israel
appears before God on the
Atonement Day attired in
white as if going to a feast,
because he is confident that
as soon as he returns peni-
tently to his Maker, He will
not condemn, but will abun-
dantly pardon.'
J. H. Hertz, 1900.


\ LIVE FOR SOMETHING

Live for something, have a purpose,
^ And that purpose keep in view;
Drifting like a helmless vessel,
Thou canst ne'er to life be true
Half the wrecks that strew life's ocean
SIf some star had been their guide,
Might have now been riding safely,
SBut they drifted with the tide.

Live for something, and live earnest.
Though the work may humble be,
By the world of men unnoticed,
Known alone to God and thee.
Every act has priceless value
To the architect of fate;
'Tis the spirit of thy doing
That alone will make it great.

Live for something-God and angels
Are thy watchers in the strife,
And above the smoke and conflict
Gleams the victor's crown of life.
Live for something; God has given
SRFreely of His stores divine;

"Yes, Father."
"Itzchok," he asked the
third in line of their age,
"have you put on paper your
talentful interpretation of the
six divisions of the Talmud?"
"Yes, father."
And so he questioned all of
his sons in order of their age,
until he came to the youngest
one.
"Yankov, my child, have
you finished your commentary
on t~Pentateuch ?"
"Not yet, but.. ."
The gray, old Goan did not
allow him to speak further,
but interrupted him, said:
"You must be rescued, so
that you may finish your
work.,
Again there was silence.

When a few moments later
the gray, old Goan asked in
the dark: "Yankov, are you
still here?" no answer came.
There was only audible the


low crying of the nine

THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN


Perhaps it is because I have
just returned from New York,
where I have been taking a
course of lectures on "Psychi
atry" that I am thinking of
such a subject. It is very good
question to put to oneself; if
correctly answered it will help
to bring success. If you really
have halitosis, your friend
should tell you, so you can
quickly get blisterine! If you
have some curable disease it
would be a mercy to have
some doctor tell you about it,
and the sooner the better.
There is no sense in carrying
a curable disease about. They
tell us that, in these progres-
sive days, people are going to
the physcho-analysist to have
themselves morally diagnosed
rather than to the priests in
the confessional. I heard of
one man who went to a priest
and confessed what both
thought to be a very wicked
thing. The priest turned him
out of the church and, I sup-
pose, consigned him to hell.
The man went insane. Had he
gone to a first-class physchi-
atrist he would have been
told an entirely different story
and would have been restored
to a very decent citizen. It
Seems a bit unjust to blithely
send a fellow-man to hell for
something he cannot very well
help.
The majority of people are
normal enough to get by;
they are far from perfect, but
they react regularly to stim-
uli and, unless their minds are
poisoned by a lot of bunk,
they go along well enough. If
they are fed on Fundamenta-
lists theology, they may go
crazy, or, on the other hand
they may be crazy or they
would not believe it in the
first place. The world is full
of witch-craft and supersti-
tion, and the first task of the
educated man is to clear up


this jungle of poison growth
and plant the seeds of a ra-
tional way of living.
There are entirely too many
abnormal people; they are the
victims of fears and repres-
sions. Here is a woman who
fears she will go insane yet,
fundamentally, she wishes to
go insane so that she will be
free to indulge in something
she knows is wrong, without
moral responsibility. Often
you find people who fear they
will die in the poor-house be-
cause, when children, they
suffered privations. Here is a
man who fears to enter a room
where th edoors will be closed
because, when he was a little
boy, he became desperately
frightened when locked in a
clothes press. There are pa-
tients who are hopelessly in-
sane; there are many others
who can be released from
their fears and delivered from
the devils that annoy them.
What I am trying to say is
that someone should seek to
free us from those things
about us which cause us to be
avoided or even detested.
Here is what I mean: I lunch-
ed not long ago with a man of
some prominence; ..he ..has
made quite a place for him-
self in society, but he has de-
veloped the miserable habit of
talking while chewing his
food, and what is much worse,
of leaning over your place
while conversing in a very en-
thusiastic fashion I felt like
kicking him out. Some kind
friend (why not his refined
wife?) should break him of
this habit or else break his
neck.
Now, I imagine that all of
us have some habits more or
less repulsive. I met one of the
most refined gentlemen the
other day, who wore a per-
fectly rotten straw hat. What
inconsistency-you see the

We would do better were we
to set ourselves to have more
and better music, more and
better art, better, if not more
churches, and altogether a
higher evaluation of culture
in general.
The Catholic church will be


best of us do these strange
things. When a certain promi-
nent man in our city went
wrong some years ago a keen
critic said, "I always knew
there was something wrong
about him, for he had such
dirty fingernails." "What do
you think of Mr. So-and-so?"
a friend of mine was asked.
"No good," was the reply; "he
picks his nose."
On the other hand we love
the men and women who
make themselves attractive
by being pre-eminently de-
cent. He who has friends must
show himself normal. There's
a reason. The man or woman
who has thousands of good
friends must be a pretty
square and fine sort of per-
son.
We would do well to weigh
our western civilization; try-
ing to see ourselves as others
see us. Spengler says that our
civilization is about to break
down. Ghandi criticies us with
keen severity. He does not
want machines in India; he
opposes factory towns. Mat.
erialism causes him to dread
-and not without reason.
China looks askance at a civil-
ization which recognizes war.
Now, there is no use in flar-
ing up into a rage over these
criticisms-we would do well
to brood over them.
Miami has come in for some
heavy knocks this past year.
Someone put us rather low in
the plane culture. We retorted
by talking about our univer-
sities and students, about our
art and music, and about our
many religious institutions.
