now have subscribers in Mi-

feels deserve the support of
Miami Jews. After a lengthy
discussion the report was
adopted and the committee
was continued with power to
effect such an organization.
The national organizations
will be asked to approve the
plan, which has been adopted
in a number of the leading
Cities of the Country, and
which will eliminate the nec-
essity of sending solicitors to
Miami at great expense to the
institution, in some cases
costing the institution as much
as sixty five percent of the
amount contributed in order
to pay the cost of the solicitor
sent to Miami.

Beth David to
Nominate Officers

As we are going to press
Beth David Congregation is
holding its annual meeting for
the nomination of officers.
Those nominated at this meet-
ing will be voted upon at the
annual meeting of the Con-
gregation to be held in Nov-
ember. A great deal of inter-
est is being evinced since
some of the officers now in
charge have declined to ac-
cept further office. During
the incumbency of the pre-
sent administration the Tal-
mud Torah building was
erected and the Talmud Torah
and Sunday School were de-
veloped to its present state
of efficiency.

Our Own Flesh and Blood?
A recent disclosure shows
that the Communists were
considerably responsible for
the recent Arab uprisings in
Palestine. Presumably their
prol:oganda was aimed at
"Imperialistic Britain and the
bourgeoisie landowners" but
soon the propogandists forgot
their formula and launched
into the antiquated, sadly-used
diatrit e against the Jews and
lhcir crafty sinister designs
upon that virtuous, guile'ess,
peace-loving r-eople ..he
Arabs! How these ridiculous-
ly flimsy charges would have
gladdened the hearts of Ha-
man and Torquemada! And
how they unleashed the hat-
red rankling in the breast of
that mortal enemy of the
Jews-the grand Mufti!

Nor is this a case of the
Communist party serving as
the scapegoat to cover up
someone's serious blunder
and thus help divert atten-
tion. Not at all. Editorials in
the communist press in Amer-
ica at the time of the Pales-
tinian Massacres tend to sub-
stantiate the veracity of this

Whether or not Commun-
ism is feasible or not is be-
side the point, entirely. Time
will tell. Surely the least that
might be said in its favor is
that it undoubtedly is as
"noble" an experiment as
Prohibition, and far more im-
portant a factor in the happi-
ness and welfare of millions
upon millions of people.
Whether or not the commun-
istic regime is acting wisely
in banishing into exile its
most fertile brains (Leon
Trotsky is the outstanding
example of these); whether
or not its abitrary stand of
su p pressing freedom of
speech and press-prohibit-
ing unfavorable comment and
criticism free religious obser-
vance-whether this stand is
justified only time will tell.
And only time, will tell wheth-
er or not every day, sees
these communistic idealists
being weaned away from the
principals of Karl Marx and
Ferdinand LaSalle and re-
turning gradually but unfail-
ingly to the odious beliefs and
practices of the capitalists.
All above considerations
are debatable. One thing,
however, remains certain.
This emancipated proletariat,
this enlightened intelligentsia
now emerges shabby and dis-
gustingly besmirched. France
aided America in its war for
independence, because it was
in sympathy with the letters

By P. J. Kiernan

The manicurist argues thai
a person's quality may be
most accurately ascertained
by an inspection of the fing-
ernails. The automobile sales-
man contends that the make
of car possessed is the true
and infallible guage. Any tail-
or, on the other hand, will tell
you it's the suit that counts,
being in plain evidence when
the car is not about and the
hands are concealed inside
gloves. The expression "of
good address," has at times
been distorted to mean living
in a sumptuous home, and
many indeed are the folks
who starve themselves while
paying disproportionate ren-
tals on the assumption that a
residence in a fashionable
neighborhood can be capitaliz-
That much difference of
opinion is there, and a good
deal more, among us, as to
what makes a genuine qual-
ity in people.
Professor Ganzelputz has
something useless but inter-
esting to contribute on this

My father, a teacher, used
to tell his boys a story, I
heard him tell it many times
during the period of my youth
and never tired hearing it.
Perhaps your father, or
teacher, told it to you with a
change of characters and
scene. In any event, it is one
of those stories that is worth
It was in the days before
the day of chain-stores, pack-
age products, automobiles and
centralized buying. It was in
the day before the pound su-
perseded the peck. Every
town had its "uptown" groc-
Sery store that carried a nicer,
bigger and more varied stock
than did the neighborhood
groceries. Sugar was dipped
out of barrels, tea and coffee
were scooped out of tin con-
tainers that lined the floor of
the counters, crackers were
kept in tin boxes with a win-
dow in front through which
peeped a soda cracker or a
cream cracker, or whatever
other kind the box may have
contained, a nd potatoes,
sweet-corn and other products-
of the farm were brought in-
to the town by the farmer or
his wife and sold to the stores
direct from the wagon.
A clerk in one of these up-
town grocery stores Jake,
was the name my father be-
stowed upon him-complain-
ed to his boss that he was not
being advanced as speedily as
his abilities merited. He was
as smart, so he told himself
and intimated to the boss,
and even smarter than Jim,
the store manager. Yet Jim
was getting twice as much
salary as he was getting. And
here Jake was hustling be-
hind the counter all day long
while Jim didn't do more than
look over some papers make
a few purchases from farm-
ers who came along to sell
their produce, and loaf around
looking wise most of the time.
The boss listened attentive-
ly as Jake profusely present-
ed his case and nodded sym-
pathetically. A farmer pulled
up in front of the door with
a loud "Whoa there!" Inter-
rupting Jake's effusion, the
boss ordered "Go out there
and see what that farmer's
Quick as a cat, Jake hust-
led out and returned a mo-
ment later with the report
that the farmer had a load of

them," snapped the boss.
Again Jake hustled out,
full of pep, and returned with
the information that the
price was eighteen cents a

Are they new potatoes?"
asked the boss.
"I'll go out and see," said
Jake obligingly, returning
soon with the happy answer
that the potatoes were new.
"Righto!" said the boss.
Then, "Hey Jim !" he called to
the store manager who was
thumbling some papers at a
.high topped desk in the rear

with everything in general. A
busy person hasn't time to
pick flaws in others. He is too
busy trying to correct the
flaws in himself.

Why is Mr. Samuel's little

God! Is she dead? And I saw
her only a few weeks ag o!
Poor broken heart! A tragic

And the little boy is saying
Kaddish for her! So there was
reconciliation. The whole
situation is very puzzling and

Still I would say a friendly


word of condolence. Perhaps
it might ease his sorrow lad-

with his clear grey eyes now

from Aldgate homeward, thru

throng which crowds the

me the saddest of sad stories;
the final separation by di-

never doubted one another,
who yet must inevitably sep-

lives; the tragedy of a loving
couple whose union is denied

said mournfully, "it's the

sadness as much as we did,
gave his sanction.

happily. Where could one

The recently formed Bis-
cayne Sea Food Company of
Miami and Miami Beach has
purchased the Miami Beach
store of the Gulf Stream Sea
Food Company, at 706 Collins
Ave., and will shortly an-
nounce the location of their
Miami store. This is to be the
beginning of a chain of stores
in the Greater Miami district
designed to give the consumer
the finest obtainable in fish
and sea foods in quality at the
most economical price. The
facilities at the disposal of the2
new company will afford them
the opportunity of rendering
unexcelled service to the fam-
ily, as well as the hotel, res-
taurant and yacht.
Officers are devoting all of
their time to the business and
promise their personal sup-
ervision at all times.


(Continued from Page 5)
Like a cloud our trouble grew
and spread till it obscured the
light of our happiness. We
began to dread being alone
together, looking into each
other's eyes and reading the
awful thought-the approach
of inevitable separation. Poor
Annie felt the position on my
account more than I did my-
"It was she who first blur-
ted out to me in a broken
voice, with tears in her eyes:
'Morris my poor darling, it
must be. Alas, the One Above
has denied me the happiness
of bearing you a Kaddish.
You must live to gain the
blessing of a Kaddish, As for
me,' she sobbed, 'I shall never
marry another.'-A promise
which she has kept.
"I argued, I would not hear
of it; we went to doctors, to
rabbis, but the black time of
separation came at last. How
shall I describe our grief, Mr.
Jacob, our bitter tears. Oh,
that final farewell, as they
led us to the rabbi of the Ma-
hzike Hadas for the heart-
rending Gett which tore us
asunder. I have never been
the same man since." A hol-
low cough, not the first that
evening, seemed to rack his
whole frame.
"I married again," he con-
tinued, "with what heart you
can imagine, a good woman,
I won't say otherwise. May
her soul rest in peace. She has
gone to her last rest. But

*m1 2UI3=NIIYAl"It


there isn't another in the
world like my poor Annie. In
due time God blessed me with
a son, a Kaddish." he gripped
more firmly the hand of the
child, who now and then, dur-
ing our conversation, had beg-
ged for one of the tempting,
toys in the stalls along the
road only to be admonished
with, "Sh! Simy, you know
it's before Havdalah, and I
have no money with me."
"Yes," he continued, "An-
nie saw me with my little
Simy for the first time that
Shabbas, three weeks ago,
when you witnessed our sad
meeting. You can imagine her
feelings and indeed mine. But
"he sighed, "the Almighty
knows best. His ways are se-
cret, but all for the best. God
forbid that I complain! Who
am I to complain!"
His step slowed down as we
approached a narrow turning
in Mile End. He seemed un-
willing to be accompanied any
further; perhaps he did not
wish me to witness his failing
I could not held noticing,
while listening to his sad story
almost sobbed out in broken
sentences, that Mr. Samuels
was now but the husk of his
ghastly pallor of his drawn
features, the frequent hollow
cough which shook him as he
spoke, the step lagging and
infirm, told tale of a hope-
less sorrowing existence.
In his honest grey eyes one
saw a pathetic longing as of
something not of this world.
Oh, the sturdy happy mod-
el of manhood that I had once
known and admired!
In parting, words of condo-
lence welled up within me. I
wished him the conventional
"Long life," which was ob-
viously not for him, and I
walked away musing on the
cause, so peculiar yet so po-
tent, which had rent asunder
so eminently suitable and ad-
mirable a pair as Mr. Samuels
and his Annie.
The Kaddish prayer holds
a unique place in our liturgy.
It is the link between the liv-
ing and the departed; the
bridge between this world and
the next; the golden staircase
to Gan Eden; the last link
very often between a Jew and

Kaddish he must say. He
dare not neglect it.
Superstition, too, is very of-
ten the driving force. Like
that of the boy who, to the as-
tonishment of the congrega-
tion, would begin "Yisgadal
Veyiskadash" with great fer-
vor, and stop obstinately at
Amen, yehe sheme Rabba! He
did it in revenge, he explain-
ed. His father's pet punish-
ment for him. when alive, was
swinging him by his hair; and
now his Kaddish saying be-
gins to raise his father from
Gehinom. "And I suddenly
stop!" he concluded in venge-
ful triumph. "Now let him
And yet in how many Jew-
ish hearts has the dying flick-
ering flame of Judaism been
revived to warmth and bright-
ness by the sincere recital of
Kaddish, and the warm re-
sponses of fellow worshippers.
No, I could not imagine a
man like Mr. Samuels, sin-
cerely orthodox, a venerator
of the rabbis, satisfied to die
without a Kaddish. AXd he,
such a lover of children, too.
And poor Annie? Was there
nothing I could do?
I returned to my apart-
ment, and for the rest of that
evening I could not get the
sad story out of my mind. He
at least had the consolation of
a child, a Kaddish. But what
a desolate, lonely life must be
hers. I wondered if I would
ever see her again. Did she
know he was now a widower ?
What link was there now be-
tween them?
I was destined to witness
one more sad and, in a sense,
final scene in this heartrend-
ing tragedy.
In the course of renewing
my acquaintance with the
East End. I happened to visit
the Mahzike Hadath Synago-
gue in Brick Lane one Mon-
day evening a couple of
months later.
On entering the synagogue
I seemed to recognize, among
the poor women who gener-
ally are here seen in the pas-
sage appealing for alms, one
whose face seemed familiar.
I looked again-could it be?
Yes! It was Annie, the di-

among the clamoring Kaddish
