A Layman Speaks

By
A. PLAINER BALEBO88


None has greater respect for
hose who become clothed' after
rears of study and deprivation,
pith the title "Rabbi than your
rumble writer. So that, whatever
: may say is with a thought of
lirecting their attention to some-
;hing constructive, rather than to
rriticise.
To you Rabbis, who are now
making of general social work to
attempt to attract the youth, may
[ not most respectfully direct your
attention to the sad experiences of
Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver, one of
;he most prominent Rabbis of the
country Backed by a congrega-
tion whose wealth is unlimited,
who spared no effort to erect a
immunityy centre, to hold social
affairs and dances, to do every-
;hing that even only the wildest
dreams could imagine, Rabbi Sil-
ver of Cleveland after two years
>f work admitted without qualifi-
:ation that his whole work was
wasted. He stated definitely that
his experiences convinced him that
those young men and women who
*am1e to dance, were not b;y that
method brought closer to any syna-
gogue. He reiterated his definite
belief that only by appealing to
the -young peo~plekagenes ofa th cr
duty to their own people could
they be brought to a reahization of
their duty to the Synagogue. A
Community Centre has its place,
no doubt, but it is the laymen's
We have closer and more vital
problems affecting us NOW. What
ahout education? Is it not a dis-
trace for Greater 1Miami Jewry
that with four synagogues in its
midst that the children attendinE
the daily Talmud Torahs do not
reach a total of seventy-five. Sev-
eral years ago when the perman-
ent population was less, M~iami's
Dnly Talmud Torah carried a regu-
lar daily attendance of more than
Bne hundred and twenty-five*
Where lies the fault ? Cannot all
congregations unite in a general
campaign to arouse the interest of
Greater Miami Jewry in the ap-
paling lack of Jewish training giv-
en to our children ? Where are
bou Rabbis, on this, which to you
shouldd be most important ?
Need we mention the situation
in Greater Miami, where, even
though the City ordinances provide
penaltiess for violations, restau-
rants are permitted to perpetrate
Irauds upon the unsuspectingy pubc'
lie by carrying algns "Hebrew",
"merican Kosher", "Kosher
tyle ,, "Jewish Cooking" and
similar misleading phrases.
eeare you, good Rabbis, when
htwhich you assert la one of the
11 principles of the Jewish faith
HOopenly involved ? Are you afraid
face the issues ?
SShall we again direct your atten-.


on to the needs of the Jewish
elaeBureau? How many of
hoewho are talking, are willing
actively work in the interests

Lack of cooperation of the City
Council during the past two years
and urged that a Council in sym-
pathy with the plans outlined by
him be elected to help him carry
on the work.
In answer to a question of a lis-
tener, he said he was in favor of a
Boardwalk and other ~improve-
ments for the Beach as ~soon as
conditions of the budget warranted
them. He insisted that greater
police protection was needed, and
promised a sane enforcement cf
the laws so that a liberal policy
consistent with decency.might: be
carried out. In talking of hte gen-
eral welfare of the community he
declared for the creation of a wel-
fare department wvhich could and
would take care of the peculiar
conditions arising on the Beach,
without appeal to non-Beach citi-
sens and residents. Mayor Cleary
challenged his opponents .to aid
him in eradicating any illegal reg-

"'Ask and Ye Shall




Q.--Would you not please tell
me whether the late Sir John de
Villiers, who served for many years
as head of the map department in
the British Museum, was of Jew-
Ish origin ?
A.--Sir John A. J. de Villiers'
who died in London in April, 1931,
at the age of 67, was the son of a
descendant of a Hugenot family
which fled from France to South
Africa by way of Holland, and of
a Dutch Jewess. He was reared in
his mother's faith to which he re-
mained loyal throughout his life.
He was the author of a number
of books including "The Dutch in
SothAfr~i n," "Holland and Sonm
est in the British M sum" "M
Memoirs," and numerous articles
in periodical publications and it'
encyclopedic works.

Q.-When did the Rambam die
and where is he buried ?
A.--The death of Moses Maimo-
nides occurred on December 13,
1204. He was in his seventieth
year and his death was the cause
of general grief. Many congrega-
tions in all parts of the world or-
damned public mounring. The Jews
and the Moslems of Fostat
mourned his loss for three days
while in Jerusalem a general fast
was proclaimed. His body was
buried at Tiberias in the sacred
soil of Palestine. The Yad Hacha-
sakah, his code of Jewish law, and
**Guide for the Perplexed," are the
best known and widely read of his
numerous works. The "Code" writ-
ten in Hebrew and the "Guide" in
Arabic are also extant in many
other languages.

in.--Dun hoe Rusa tp troum
there was one in Warsaw. On what
day did it occur ?

A.-The waves of massacres and
anti-Jewish riots in Russia which
followed the assassination of Alex-
ander II swept through one hun-
dred and sixty Russian-Jewish
communities. Beginning with the
pogrom in Elizabethgrad on April
67, 1881, the bloody rage came to
a standstill by the end of Septem-
ber of that year. However, on
December 25, 1881, while..Christi-
anity throughout the world ob-
served the birthday of the Chris-
tian savior a new series of massa-

THE JEW'S NOBILITY
By Edith E11* Davis
It is a noble thing to be a Jew,
The scion of a priesthozod rich:
in lore,
A heritage whose wealth the sages
knew,
With banners that the mighty
prophets bore.
The law with its stern beauty
bound within,
Its precepts kept in dutiful ae-
cord;
A record since creation did begin;
The deep significance of God's
own word.

It is a noble thing to pe a peer
In family, of -Israel's honored

It is asg et tradition to revere
The memory of the ancient holy
.ones
Whose service never wavered,
though in plight,
Who in darkness dreamed the
glory through
Who kept to God throughout the
endless night,
It is a noble thing to be a Jew.

saw where the disorders lasted for
three days. Twelve Jews were
killed and more wounded; a num-
ber of worsen were outraged and
about a million dollars' worth of
Jewish property was destroyed.

Q.-- Who was Josephus ?
A.--Flavius Josephus was a
member of an aristieratie Jewish
family. He was born in the year
37-38 and died at the close of the
first Christian century. His ea-
reer covered a period of surpassing
interest when the religion which
Jesus of Nazareth preached was
first launched in the Roman Em-
pire. As a priest, a scholar, a
member of the Pharisaic sect, a
military commander and a Roman
citizen Josephus Z layed an dm-

Pim and wasi the eventd th so
of the Flavian emperors. Their
name he subsequently adopted.
Under the circumstances it was
quite natural that his fellow Jews
doubted his patriotism. But plain,
ly enough, Josephus was proud of
his race and became its apologist
and defender. His largest and
most elaborate work, the "Jewish
Antiquities" ran to twenty books
and was written during his later
years. Those who are fortunate
enough to be able to read the writ-
ings- of' Josephus in their original
Greek are delighted with the beau.
ty and smoothness of his Greek
style. It is modeled on Attic ex-
amples and is remarkably free
from solecisms. The purity of his
diction is explained by the fact
that he employed a corps of as-
sistants who are said to have pol-
ished his writings.
Among his other writingslis the
"Jewish War," which many schol-
ars regard as the fillbst produe-
tion that emanated from the pen
of Flavius Josephus. It is both
interesting and excellent literature.
There is a vast literature dealing
with the life and work of Josephus.
Each of the following three books
offers an adequate presentation of
the subject:
Norman Bentwich, "Josephus,"
Philadelphia, 1914; Henry St. John
Thackeray, "Josephus, the Man


and the Historian," New York,
1929; Frederick Foakes-Jackso4
"'Josephus aLndthe Jews, Londo,

hearts to break, but there are lots
of cracked brains.

pus~h. T~heFighin Gators battled
the enneseeVolunteers and
made it possible for them to claim
the Southern Conference Champ-
ionship. They did this simple feat
by losing 32-18 to the Mountain,
eers. We did our best but it was
one of those times when the best
wasn't good enough. Never have
I seen a faster, better blocking
team than the one put forth by
Tennessee, but in spite of this if
she hadn't scored most of her
points in the first half the finals
might have been different. Florida
deserves to be called the Fighting
Gators.
While I'm on the subject of foot-
ball I might mention the game
that will be a fitting conclusion
of the 1932 season.
The University of California at
Los Angeles plays here on Dee-
ember 17th. Floridians will have
an opportunity for the first and
last time this year to see a famous
Western opponent. Plans for Cali-
fornia Day are elaborate. Invita-
tions have been extended to Presi-
dent- Eleet Roosevelt, Will Rogers,
Joe E. Brown to attend as guests.
Seven bands will compete between
the halves. It will be as grand old
time.
Of greater interest is the news
that holiday vacations begin the
day after the game on December
18th, and will last until January 3.
It's past bedtime so IT1 have to
conclude and listen to the fairy
tales of my roo mmate until I en-
ter slumberland.
