To My Way of Mens Club Pre-
Thinking pares For Gala
by New Year's Eve


Rabbi Israel H. Weisfeld

And now some kind-hearted
souls in Mexico have found
a new problem to lose sleep
over. Having righted all oth-
er existing ills in this Vale of
Tears they are finally con-
fronted with an apparently
insurmountable obstacle. But
the sun is hot in Mexico and
the genius of the local inhabi-
tant is not to be denied. And
the furrowed brow of a sorely
perplexed humanity is about
to be smoothed out. .. .for
o! the panacea has been dis-
covered.

Try, if you are a hardened
individual and able to bear
up under a horrible shock, to
imagine the terrible, excru-
ciating pains suffered by a
orpse who turns over in his
offin! For such seems to be
the pastime of genus corpse
in Mexico. Scientists (?) of
that Country have discovered,
to their indescribable amaze-
ment and that of a pop-eyed,
breathless, palpitating world,
that bodies that had been bur-
ied on their backs in true re-
spectable fashion befitting
staid, orderly, well mannered
corpses, had been found lying
face downward! Unbearable
and indecent! must be the im-
passioned comment of the
most cold-blooded, heartless-
ly-indifferent person who
hears of this.

Well, what shall be done?
An outraged world insists,
aye, demands immediate-ac-
tion! They shall not turn ov-
er! But how? Frenzy, despair
will lead but to the grave .. .
Then, what? (Truly, this is a
grave matter) Ah! the solu-
tion is at hand, neatly type-
written, double spaced, wide
margin and all.
Since they turn over, ap-
parently these corpses are not
really corpses when buried,
but posses life and strength
kfhich is later spent in the
process of turning over:
therefore, the most logical ad-
vice is: cut the gullet of each
person who dies and rest as-
sured that there will be no
turning over.
No, dear readers, the fore-
going is not a fantasy but an
actual fact. A bill is about to
e introduced before the Mex-
iW Government requiring
hat each dead person's gullet
cut before the corpse is
Paced in the coffin, in order
to make sure the deceased is
Permanently and definitely
ceased, demised, departed .
. dead! Verily, genius is
liplicity in disguise!
To my mind, this bit of
Nes presents certain inex-
Plicable complications. In the
t place, what prompted
te discoverers to putter with
bskets and ultimately hit up-
" this sensational revelation?
hat morbid curiosity! Sec-
ndly, granted that "dead


ea are restless," how could

Plans announced for the an-
nual New Year's eve affair
of the Men's Club of Miami
point to one of the biggest
events in the history of the
organization. The affair
which will be held at the hot-
el Nemo, Miami Beach will be-
gin about 10 p. m. and will
go to the wee hours of the
morning.
Raymond Young's Orches-
tra will furnish the music and
a large vaudeville program in-
cluding an ensemble has been
arranged to furnish the even-
ing's entertainment. Noise-
makers, hats and favors for
the ladies have been promised
the guests and as usual there
will be no charges for ginger-
ale, white rock, etc. The com-
mittee in charge consists of

Rabbi Kaplan to
Preach at Temple

A speech by Rabbi Jacob IH.
Kaplan, Friday evening in the
Temple Israel on the topic
"Christmas and Hanukkah"
will feature the Feast of
Lights observance which
starts Thursday. The obser-
vance lasts eight days. Chil-
dren of the religious school
will celebrate the feast with a
program Sunday morning.

National Welfare
Body Is Formed
The Council of National
Jewish Social Agencies was
formed here on Sunday by
150 delegates representing
the Consumptive Relief So-
ciety of Los Angles, four or-
ganizations in Denver, the
Leo Levi Memorial Hospital
at Hot Springs, Ark., and the
Hebrew Immigrant Aid So-
ciety.
Dr. Phillip Hilkowitz of
Denver was elected tempor-
ary chairman and William
Schaeffer, also of Denver,
was named secretary. The
purpose of the preliminary
conference held at the Stand-
ard Club was to discuss ways
and means of working out
more economical methods oi
raising funds for Jewish so-
cial organizations and to find
:neans of preventing conflicts
between campaigns.
The above item is especially
interesting to Miamians, be-
cause a committee consisting
of Rabbi Dr. Jacob H. Kap-
lan, Rabbi Israel II. Weisfeld,
H. U. Feibelman, Dr. M. D.
Kirsch, J. Louis Shochet and
P. Scheinberg were appointed
to form a similar committee
for Miami, on behalf of and
;n operationn with the local


Jewish Welfare Bureau.


Prominent Mer-
chant Dies Here
The sudden death of Henry
Rudich last Thursday morn-
iing after an illness of about
three weeks came as a shock
to his many friends because
of his reported improvement.
Mr. Rudich had been engaged
in the bird and animal busi-
.'ess in Miami for a long num-
ber of years and had endeared
himself to a large circle of
friends. He was a member of
.he Beth David Congregation,
and of the Mens Club of Mi-
ami, as well as of the Anshey
Thilim Congregation at Will-
oughby and Tompkins sts.,
Brooklyn, N. Y. He came from
a family prominent in com-
munal work and his sister
Mrs. Mentzer is one of the
most active workers in Ha-
dassah circles in Greater N.
Y. He leaves surviving him
his wife, Rose; and two
daughters, one Mrs. Shapiro,
residing in Miami and the oth-
er daughter in New York, and
his aged father Mr. Leon Ru-
dich, in Brooklyn, N. Y.
Services were held at the
King Funeral Home last
Thursday evening at which
Rabbi Israel H. Weisfeld of
Beth David officiated and was
attended by a number of close
friends. The body was then
shipped to New York City
where services will be held on
Friday morning and inter-
ment will be in the cemetery
of the New York Synagogue
of which the late Mr. Rudich
was a member. Rabbi Burack
will officiate at the burial
services.

Rabbi Weisfeld Is
Honored by Ladies

At a special meeting of the
Ladies Auxiliary of Beth Da-
vid Synagogues held last
Thursday, Rabbi Israel H.
Weisfeld was elected an hon-
orary life member in recogni-
tion of his work for the organ-
ization.

they possibly find sufficient
room in a casket to turn over?
And lastly, and most import-
ant of all, what of it? Suppose
it is so . what of it? De-
file a human body by cutting
the throat in order that it
may lie inertly, IN PACE!
And mind you, this bill is pro-
posed in all seriousness, with-
out the remotest semblance of
a flicker of a smile.
Invariably, I am puzzled by
a display of this perverted
kindness. A movement for
providing regular dental care
for suffering seals leaves me
surprisingly aloof and indif-
ferent. I blush to make the
stratling confession, but
truth cannot be denied. Ir iA"-
face of so much heart-rend-
ing, human suffering preva-
lent the world over, I fail to
see how human beings in full
possession and control of
their faculties can spend time
money and efforts to further
insignificant, trivial undertak-
ings. Somehow, base though
it must probably sound, I am
heartlessly uncompromising
in my belief that goldfish
would not die of bronchitis
even il that sad fate were
not averted for them thru
the sustained and sacrificing
efforts of kind old ladies.

The sole possible justifica-
tion for anyone's loss of faith
in and respect for mankind
is the spectacle of a calories-
watching, bejewelled lady dis-
dainfully brushing past a
poor, wretched, underfed, rag-
ged youngster, as she regally
measures her steps towards
her limousine and whispering
tender, sweet nothings to
some sleek, carefully-tended
puppy. Feeding these pets
rare tid-bits and costly cand-
ies while numberless families
are starving, or at best, eke-
ing out a bare, miserable liv-
ing buying for the for-
mer, collars of carefully
wrought gold while the latter
braves the blasts and bliz-
zards, coatless and hatless-
is hardly a fair example of
h uman conception of kind-
ness or justice.

And now they've turned
their kind-hearted efforts to-
ward aiding the dead. I am
reminded of the following lit-
tle story.
A number of scientists were
heatedly discussing the possi-
bility of attaching shoes to
ihe feet of flies. If the feet
of horses can be shod, why not
those of flies? they argued.
Soon they began measuring

"For the Preservation of Your Clothe"


and figuring, reckoning and
devising means for the manu-
facturing of instruments with
which to shod the feet of the
flies. All objections of the
skeptical professors were
soon answered away, and
beaming, they set about plan-
ning for the first experiments
when up stood an elderly ven-
erable scientist and said;
"Colleagues, I've listened to
all your arguments and plans
and must confess I'm con-
vinced that it's very possible
to shod the feet of flies, but
pray, tell me, when did the
flies complain and express a
desire for those fly-shoes?
And, pray, OF WHAT
E A R T H I Y USE WILL
THEY BE TO ANYONE? ..
What difference does it
make ?
Pray, lawgivers of Mexico.
what difference does it make.


DID YOU KNOW
That Meyer Lesser, one of
the big men in the Warner or-
ganization, is a son of the
late Orthodox rabbi of Cincin-
'iati ?
That the late Prof. Gott-
hard Deutsch of Cincinnati
was very fond of Rabbi Les-
ser, notwithstanding the fact
that the rabbi used to call him
a shagetz to his face?
That in the near future a
well-known Jewish news
agency will announce as its
new editor a fairly well-known
Zionist figure who started his
phenomenal climb to the ex-
traordinary position he now
occupies as an office boy in
the Zionist Organization
many years ago?
That George Jessel carries
two brands of cigars, one of
which he smokes himself?

Rules and regulations ? Et!
I laugh at them. They are all
nonsense. What? You would
remind me of how we were all
bound by them, as by iron
chains when we were kept inl
that hole of a place in south
Russia? It is true the author-
ities had so many rules and
regulations that we were like
slaves. Nevertheless, there
were times when we did as
we wished-when we laughed
at our chains. You don't be-
lieve me? Well, you are a
curious man. But, I will prove
to you that once, at any rate,
I laughed at the rules and
regulations, simply set them
at naught. But, you must un-
ccstand that it was the sort
of a laugh which draws the
malrow out of the bones of
those who hear it. And as for
the man himself, who laughs
that sort of a laugh! We!l,
how can I describe his feel-
ings? Let it be that I only
laughed with my lips, whilst
my heart spurted blood like a
fountain.
But, it was a laugh, all the
same. And what is more, I
had a good meal into the bar-
gain. I may say it was the
only good meal I had the
whole time we were there. I
really felt that I was alive at
last.
Listen to what happened:
You remember how tightly
the authorities kept hold of
the food. Woe unto the earth
they called bread, and woe un-
to us who had to eat it! Well,
according to the rules and
regulations, I was entitled to

only a few ounces of bread
per day. A man who was
young and strong, and who
could work, was supposed to
be able to earn his own living.
How? By what means?
Where? What at? These
questions never found their
way into the heads of the
authorities. The rules and
regulations said so and so, and
there was an end to the argu-
ment. It was no, and no!
My poor motherless child
was not entitled to any food
either. You see, he had a
father who was supposed to
work for him. If he had had
a mother instead of a father
to look after him, he might
still be living, my poor pigeon
-peace be unto him! You see,
the rules and regulations laid
it down that a mother cannot
work, but a father must.
Therefore, the father got
nothing and the child got
nothing. That is to say, noth-

We know of no better intro-
duction to a consideration of
Chanukah than the Charge of
Mattathias to his sons before
his death.
Mattathias clearly and in
unambiguous terms presented
the situation to his five sons.
This is what the old Hero-
Priest said:
Now the days of Mattathias
drew nigh that he should die;
and he called unto his five
sons, and he encouraged them,
and he strengthened them
with his words. And he said
unto them: "My sons, I know
that now many wars will be
aged among you, because we
arose, and bestirred ourselves
to fight for our people and for
Sour remnant that escaped,
and for the cities of our God.
And now, my sons, be jealous
for the sake of your God and
for the sake of His sanctu-
ary; and fear not death,
for if ye die in the battle of
the Lord, ye will receive your
reward, and ye will be in the
land of the living with our
fathers. Moreover, ye will al-
so inherit a portion and an in-
heritance in the lot of their
inheritance; for all our fath-
ers were jealous for the Lord,
and our God gave them grace
and honor. Know ye not that

he was jealous for the God of
Israel, when he slew Zimri
with the Midiantish woman,
received a covenant of salt for
ever? And his priesthood was
unto him, and unto his seed
After him, an everlasting cov-
< enant; because he was jealous
for his God, and made atone-
ment for the children of Is-
rael. And the Lord our God
therefore raised him above all
sons of Aaron, our first fath-
er, and He gave him His cov-
,nant of peace. Also unto all
our fathers who were jealous
for our God did our God give


their reward; and they found
favor in the sight of God.
Now, my sons, be strong and
of good courage, fear not, and
be not dismayed on account of
these unclean nations; for
they trust in their strength
that perisheth and in their
might that cometh to an end,
but ye trust in the ,slrtength
of the Lord our God which
perisheth not and in the
strength of his might which
cometh not to an end. For
they trust in the multitudie of
1h ir troops and in their ormv
but ye trust in the Lord with
whom are strength and pow-
er to save by many or b)
few. And the power of the
horde is a vain thing for de-
liverance, for deliverance is
the Lord's. As i mhll. our-
selves, my sons, and be like
(ne man and of one heart:
and be jealous for the God of
Israel, as your pious fathers
",ere; and the Lord, the God
of your strength, will put the
dread of you and the fear of
you upon your enemies.
If ever there was need of
Much a charge it is today when
multitudes seek to overwhelm
any and all who in the least
think differently and who de-
sire to live their own lives.
What was the struggle of
the Maccabees against Epi-
phanes, the Madman and his
wild hordes? It was not for
power; it was not for self-
glorification, not for any mat-
crial gain that the Maccabees
fought and bled.
They stood up against the
terrible foe in defense of their
holiest convictions, for the in-
alienable right to worship ac-
cording to the dictates of
their heart? They fought for
the preservation of their na-
tionhood.
Today, we Jews are fight-
ing once more. It is not a fight
with arms and with deadly
weapons, though the pogrom-
ists march through +bh ''ds
of oppression.
Today Jews are fighting
with their heart and soul.
It is the conflict of the spir-
it against physical force.
It is the fight of the small
minority against multiudes
who would coerce it.
We, Jews, in reality, ask
nothing of the world except to
be left alone.
We light the Chanukah
Candles in token of our inde-
pendence of spirit.
This is a Divinely granted
gift of which no one has the
right to deprive us.
And we are confident of the
end.
As Judas Maccabeus fought
against fearful odds and
emerged victorious from the
battle, so we today are batt-

what I hoped to find: I don't.
Anyway, I found nothing.
There was not so much as a
bare bone to be found any-
where.
My Nahum cried and wail-
ed. His little bones were
sticking out of his skin. He
couldn't walk. He could
scarcely cry any more. His
little belly began to swell.
Hunger typhus. What need
to go over the whole ground?
You know it from beginning
to end. Et! What we went
through in those days!
Grant that I have described
everything, everything. A
child is dying of hunger. His
father is in agonies of dread
and horror. But, there were
moments when the father for-
got his child and remembered
only his own suffering. Yes,
it was so.
Folks say that a mother can
never forget her child. But, a
man is selfish by nature.
That may be why the authori-
ties made those rules and reg-
ulations. Perhaps they were
not so wrong. But hear what
happened before you decide.
My poor child was in agon-
ies. I said to myself: "Zal-
men, do what you can. Zal-
men, be a woman. Go to them,
fall at their feet, weep and
sob and moan. It is for your
child."
So, I was a woman. Really,
I did everything which only a
woman can do. In fact, I for-
got that I was only the father
of my dying child. I filled the

THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN

famished. My life was ebbing
from me.
At last, one of the men took
pity on me. He bade me stop
crying, just as if I were a wo-
man, and my lamentations had
moved him to pity. He asked
me to tell him everything. I
talked and talked and talked.
You know that a woman has
nine measures of talk. Well,
I had nine and ninety. He be-
lieved my story. He opened a
big book, and saw that I had
S never yet had more than the
., regulation fe w ounces of
bread for myself and my child.
This time he gave me a whole
loaf, saying that it was for
the child, and that I was not
to dare ask any more.
But, how was my poor weak
child to eat that hard bread?
I begged for a drop of milk for
him. But, I might as well have
tried to move a wall as move
that man. Had I been a wo-
man, I would have been given
the milk. But, as I was only
the child's father, the case
was hopeless.
It seemed to me that day
S that I was hours and hours
getting home-woe unto the
home! I was utterly exhaust-
fed when I reached the dark,
damp cellar where my child
was lying on his bed of filfthy
/ straw.
HIe was not crying. His:
moalt was merely a soft sigh.
S I lked at him. Woe unto
hinV--woe!
You have seen such cases.

your own families-God help
you! Then, let it be that I
have described everything to
you. You do not need to have
another case described. They
were all alike.
Well, the poor child was
only just breathing.
Black bread for him? Why,
he was almost too weak to
swallow a drop of water.
I was beside myself with
grief and anguish. I lost my-
self.
At last the thought occur-
red to me that I ought to go
for the doctor. A peculiar joy
filled my soul, when I thought
of going for the doctor. It
seemed to me that, since ever
the world began, no one had
ever yet thought of rushing
off for the doctor for his sick
child. The doctor was sulky
and sullen, as if the whole
world of care were on his
shoulders. He gave one look
at the child, shrugged his
shoulders, and muttered:
"Hunger typhus. Milk and
white bread for him. I will
give you a note. He is very
bad, but may yet be saved."
Perhaps, if I had been a wo-
man, I might have understood
better. I might have remem-
bered that my poor child was
very ill, and might have taken
no notice at all of the promise
of food. However, I was glad
that now I would have the
whole of the little eloaf to my-
self. I rushed off with the
doctor's note, but was told at
once that it was useless. They
would give me no more food
that day. I had had a whole
loaf only a couple of hours be-
fore. But, I knew what to do.


My tactics had succeeded once
and why should they not suc-
ceed again? And I went
through the whole pantomine
of wailing and sobbing and
wringing my hands. I scream-
ed into their faces: "The doc-
tor's orders! The doctor's
orders for a dying child!"
"Never again!" they said,
like tyrants. But, they gave
me the food- a little milk,
and a roll of soft, fine white
bread, fit for a king.
Grant that I knew my child
would not be alive when I got
home. Or, if you will, grant
that I did not know. However,
that may be, there is no need
for me to tell you that it was
my stomach which dictated to
me, not my heart, nor even
my head.
My poor child had breathed
his last. He lay there on the
vfilfthy straw, stretched out in
the stark agony of death-a
terrible, terrible sight.
What did I do? Laughed,
just laughed, not with mirth,
but with gall.
But, where were the regua-
tions, the laws?
The regulations, the laws
were no more. They had been
blown into thin air by the ill-
ness and death of a little child.
