WELL SAID, RABBI KAPLAN *
ELSEWHERE we are printing a brief message from Rabbi Dr. Jacob
H. Kaplan of Temple Israel directed to his own members, in which he
pointedly urges them to attend Friday evening services.
We join heartily in the brief message of Rabbi Kaplan. Would that
all our rabbis throughout Florida would have the courage to drive home
as effectively as possible the message, "Saturday is for some communion
with your Maker.,,
Particularly is this message timely now. A number of young Jewish
boys and girls have organized clubs for their social enjoyment. No better
or more appropriate time could have been found (?) than Friday night.
When our Jewish boys and girls attending the university want to have
a good time, they inevitably choose Friday nights.
Will these good youngsters, and even the older folks, ever realize that
if for nothing else than self-respect they should devote Frid~ay evenings,
if no other time, to attendance at the synagogues and temple.
Well said, Rabbi Kaplan, and may there be more like you!

Through its -cool hygiene de.
apartment and 'Sichoolai -uncheonc,
Hadassah, is spreading health
knowledge among the pupils, and
through them among their par.
ents. The hygiene department su.
pervises the examination of 25,000
pupils in 266 schools. The children
are examined for contagious dis.
eases, given treatment and vacci-
nated against typhoid and small-
pox. They are taught personal hy-
giene by lecture and demonstra-
tion. When this department was
first established in 1918 forty out
of every hundred pupils in Jewish
schools were suffering from tra-
choma. The ratio has been reduced
to nine per -cent in the same
schools. This figure compares with i
the -ratio of 62 per cent in schools I
not under the supervision of the
Hiadassah hygiene department. Ten
years ago 40 per cent of the school
children were afflicted with skin
diseases; today these diseases have
been practically wiped out in these
schools. Quite recently a mental
hygiene clinic was established in
Palestine and a program of ex-
pansion in this work is being plan-
ned by experts in the field of per-
sonal psychology. The "Health
Scoirts," organized by the hygiene
department, act as sanitary n-
spectors, examining conditions in
dairies, bakeries and other food
shops and reporting their findings
and teaching the younger children
The luncheons system in the
schools has become an important
feature of Hiadassah work. Hot
daily lunches are provided for
children in fourteen schools and
forty-eight kindergartens through
the Palestine Luncheons Fund of
Hadassah, the work of which sev-
eral years ago was recognized by
the Jewish Board of Education of
Palestine and was inclanjed in the
school curriculum as an educa-
tional feature. The meals are pre-
pa red and served by the pupils
themselves, under proper adult
supervision, and by this active
participation learn about food
values and efficient housekeeping,
a knowledge none too common in
Palestine. For the most part, the
pupils pay for the meals, even if
only a cent a meal, so that the
pauperizing element is eliminated.
The $25,000 budget required to
;carry on this work is raised chief-
ly through school children mn re-
ligious schools in America.
Hadasah has not yet been able
to establish the system of school
luncheons in all the schools of the
country under the supervision of
the Department of Education of
the Jewish Agency, but is hoping
that the work in this field will ex
pand in the future.
Through the infant welfare, pre-
natal and maternity. work, pedi-

health and healthful iiing.

will be returned. If the money is
not returned, the lender keeps the
object, which is usually worth
more than the sum of money loan-

(Exodus xxii., 25-26.)
When thou art making any kind
of a loan to thy neighbor, thou
shalt not go into his house to fetch
his pledge. Thou shalt stand with-
out, and the man to whom thou
lendest the money shall bring
forth the pledge outside to thee,
and if he be a poor man, thou
shalt not sleep with his pledge
when the sun goeth down, that he
mayt sleep in his garment, and
bless thee; and it shall be right-
ousness unto thee before the Lord
thy God. (Deuteronomy xxiv, 10-

OUR DUTY TO THE POOR
The world has always had poor
people, and will probably always
continue to have them. For even a
rich man may, as the result of an
accident, suddenly find himself
poor. How shall we act towards
our less fortunate brothers ?
The Hebrew language has no
word for what is called charity.
Instead, we use the word "tsdo-
koh," which means righteousness.
In other words, when we help the
poor or needy, we are only doing
what is right and just. It is our
duty to do so, and we should not
expect any reward for a common
act of justice.
Let us read the laws of the Bi-
The poor shall never cease out
of the land; therefore I command
thee saying: Thou shalt surely
open thy hand unto thy poor and
needy brother. (Deuteronomy xv.,
If a fellow-countryman becomes
poor and falls beside thee, then
thou must relieve him 'and enable
him to live beside thee. (Leviticus
Thou must give to him and give
cheerfully, and because of that,
the Lord thy God will bless thee
in all thy work and in whatever
tou 0tmdertakest. (Deuteronomy
If there be among you a needy
man, one of thy fellow-country-
men, within any of thy gates in
the land which the Lord thy God
giveth thee, thou shalt not harden
thy heart, nor shut thy hand from
your needy brother; but thou shalt
surely open thy hand unto him,
and shalt surely lend him suffi-
cient for his need in that which he
wanteth. (Deuteronomy xv., 7-8.)
You probably know that when
a person borrows money from a
friend or from a bank he usually
pays it back with interest; that is,
he pays back a little more than he
borrowed. That may be permissi-
ble today, but the Bible forbids
If thou lend money to any poor
man of My people, thou must not
be unto him as a creditor nor ex-
aict interest from him. (Exodus
Take no interest from him in
money or kind, but fear thy Godl,
that thy brother may live with
thee. Thou shalt never ask inter-
est on thy money loans to him or
on the food which thou furnishest
him. I am the Lord your God who
brought you forth out of the land
of Egypt, to give you the Land of
Canaan, to be your God. (Leviti-
cus xxy, 36-38.)
Suppose a person lends money
to a poor man, what assurance has
he that the money will be return-
ed ? In order to protect himself,
the lender is compelled to take a
pledge; that is, he takes some ob-
ject as a guaranty that the money

TE PRINCE AND THE
A schoolmaster was once giving
,es on the Commandments,
sonh came to the command,
Ih shalt not steal."
,(What do you think causes peo.
ple to steal?" he asked.
One of the pupils answered
Ihunger," another "extravagance,"
B third "envy,"t but one little fel-
low, wiser than the rest, replied
(1Well answered my little man,
said the master. "Now I'll tell
you a tale out of the Midrash. You
know that King Solomon says:
WRhosoever is partner to a thief
haet his own soul,"^' which means
that he who derives gain from a
thief by helping him to dispose of
the stolen goods is thoroughly did-
honest and the more guilty of the
"No0w, the Midrash illustrates
this proverb with the following
story: A powerful and wise prince
,nee made a law that the receiver
stolenn property should be hang-
zd, and in order to teach the peo-
ple the wisdom of his edict he or-
fered all those who questioned the
instice of the decree to meet hint
in a large field which he had pro-
pared for the occasion. The day
before they met he had the ground
pierced with a number of holes.
The people assembled, and the
prince ordered some large pieces
>f meat to be strewn all over the
Ground, and a few weasels to be
let loose. In a very short time the
Peasels disappeared down the
holes with the meat and the field
"The next day the prince again
ssembled the company, again
spread the morsk of meat, and
Gain let loose t~h thievish wea-
lels; but he had taken the precau-
lion to have every hole and nook
Topped up. When the weasels
pounced on the meat, and ran away
Rith it to the little dens, where

?roceeds- of their theft, they found
;he holes closed against them; so
:hey dropped their spoil, and I
lon't know from the Midrash
whether they became honest of
heir own accord, but in any case
heir game was stopped.
"One thing is certain. For a
ong time theft ceased in the
he rdom of the wise prince, for

THE TORAH IS ISRAEL'S
Onee the Romans issued a de-
cree that the Jews should no long-
er occupy themselves in the study
of the Torah. Rabbi Akiba, how-
ever, was most zealous in spread-
mng a love and knowledge of the
Torah among all the Jewish com-
One day his friend Pappus met
him and spoke thus: "Akiba, art
thou not afraid ? Thou surely must
know that thy deeds will bring
thee into mortal danger!" "Stay
a while!" retorted Akiba, "let me
tell thee a story:
"A fox was walking on the brink
of a stream, in the clear waters of
which were a number of fishes
running to and fro. Said the fox to
,the fishes, 'Why do you run so?'
'We run,' replied they, 'because
we fear the fishermen's nets.,
'Come up on dry land,' said the
fox, 'and live with me in safety,
even as my forefathers once lived
in safety with yours.' But the
fishes said, 'This surely is not the
cleverest among animals that
speaks thus. Water is our natural
home. If we are not safe there,
how much less safe should we be
on land, where we must surely
"It is exactly so with us Jews,"
continued Akiba. "The Torah is
our life and the length of our
days. We may, whilst loving and
studying the Torah, be in great
danger from our enemies, but if
we were to give up its study, we
should speedily disappear and be
When Abraham was old and bent,
His oldest servant out he sent,
To look around in his old land
To find a girl for Isaac's hand.
With camels ten and gifts of gold,
As it was done in days of old
He went to seek a modest bride
Who would in Isaac's tent reside '

And when he came to tNahor's gate
He sat bsid a wel to wait.
And when Rebekah came along,
Up to the well with joyous song,
She said, "I'll get a drink for you,
And water for your camels, too."
He asked the girl to tell her name,
To tell him from what place she

According to our rabbis, Moses
was instructed to give the Israel-
ites six hundred and thirteen com-
mandments. David reduced them
all to eleven in the fifteenth
Psalm: "Lord, who shall dwell on
Thy holy hill? He that walketh
uprightly, and worketh righteous-
ness, and speaketh the truth in his
heart. He that backbiteth not with
his tongue, nor doeth evil to his
neighbor, nor taketh up a reproach
against his neighbor. In whose
eyes a vile person is despised; but
he honoreth them that fear the
Lord. He that sweareth to his own
hurt, and changeth not. He that
putteth not out his money to us-
ury, nor taketh reward against the
innocent. He that doeth these
things shall never be moved,"
The Prophet Isaiah reduced them
to six (xxxiii., 15): He that walk-
eth righteously, and speaketh up.

The Prophet Micah reduced
them to three (v. 8): W~hat does
the Lord required of thee but to
do justly, and to love mercy, and
to walk humbly with thy God ?
Isaiah once more reduced them
to two (v. 1): Keep ye judgment
and do justice.
Amos (v. 4) reduced them all to
one: Seek ye me and ye shall live.

deep to be uttered before them.
Then came the eighth day, when
the whole row burns, even the
faithful ninth, the servant, which 1
on other nights is used only for
the lighting of others. A great
splendor streamed from the Me-
norah. The children's eyes glisten-
ed. But for our friend all this was
the symbol of the enkindling of a
nation. When there is but one
light, all is still dark, and the soli-
tary light looks melancholy. Soon
it finds one companion, then an-
other, and another. The darkness
must retreat. The light comes first
to the young and the poor--then
others join who love Justice,
Truth, Liberty, Progress, Human-
ity, and Beauty. When all the
candles burn, then we must all
stand and rejoice over the achieve-

blessed than that of a Servant sf

His Jewish origin and the faith
of his fathers had long since
ceased to trouble him, when sud-
denly the old hatred came to the
surface again in a new mob-cry.
With many others he believed
that this flood would shortly sub-
side. But there was no change for
the better; and every blow, even
though not aimed directly at him,
struck him with fresh pain, till
little by little his soul became one
bleeding wound. These sorrows,
buried deep iti his heart and sil-
enced there, evoked thoughts of
their origin and of his Judaism;
and now he did something he could
not perhaps have done in the od d
days--he began to love his Juda-
isni with an intense fervor.
Although in his own eyes he
could not, at first, clearly justify
this hew yearning, it became so
powerful at length that it crys-
tallized from vague emotions into
a definite idea which he must
needs express. It was the convic-
tion that there was only one solu-
tion for this moral misery--the re-
turn to Judaism.
Hitherto he had permitted to
pass by unobserved the holiday
which the wonderful apparition of
the Maccabees had illumined for
thousands of years with the glow
of miniature lights. Now, how-
ever, he made this holiday an op-
portunity to prepare something
beautiful which should be forever
commemorated in the minds of his
children. In their young souls
should be implanted early a stead-
fast devotion to their ancient peo-
ple. He bought a Menorah, and
when he held this nine-branched
ca dle tick in hst anghe oo rthe
over him. In his father's house
also the lights had once burned in
his youth, now far away, and the
recollection gave him a sad and
tender feeling for home. The tra-
dition was neither cold nor dead
-thus it had passed through the
ages, one light kindling another.
The mere sound of the nam:-,
which he now pronounced every
evening to his children, gave him
great pleasure. There was a lov.

On the first night the candle
was lit and the origin of the holi-
day explained. The wonderful in-
cident of the lights that strangely
remained burning so long, the
story of the return from the Bab-
ylonian exile, the second Temple,
the Maceabees-our friend told his
children all he knew. It was not
very much, to be sure; but it serv-
ed. When the second candle was
lit, they repeated what he had told
them; and though it had all been
learned from him, it seemed to him
quite new and beautiful. In the
days that followed, he waited
keenly for the evenings which be-
came ever brighter. Candle after
candle stood in the Menorah, and
the father mused on the little can-
