Rabbi Addresses s

IHndassah Meetng

Senior Hadassah gave its annual
Chanukah tes Tuesday afternoon
at the Acacia clubrooms with 100
guests, including visiting members,
in attendance. Mdrs. J. Williamson
arranged the program, which was
presented byr Mrs. Sol Latsktry,
president, who gave an address of
welcome. Alice Wick entertained
with a song and tap dance, tol-
lowed with piano selections by
Miss Mi. Carllahan, Mrs. L. Axel-
rd spke on the membership, and
oariso Freed gave piano numbers.

The pupyr s g~rrbvng sm so p
many divergent, conflicting and
even capricious interpretations
that the lay mind is all in a mud-
dle.
All the paens of exaltation, all
the fine words that tongue can
fashion, all the sermons of hope
and optimism will not alter the ex-
isting situation.
It is going to require something
more heroic than all this
Perhaps we face an impossible
task--the perpetuation of a Juda-
ism that will do for future genera-
tions what -Judaism did, spiritually,

If we are to accomplish this, we I
must first determine that it is 9
desirable objective. We are not
behaving like that right now.
Nor will it avail much for the
pulpit to scold the pew and for the
pew to place ~the burden of the !
responsibility on the shoulders of
the pulpit;.
Both are to blame in no small
measure.
The pulpit--those to whom we
have a right to look for spiritual
guidance, are as opposite as the
poles in their interpretations of

JdimThe pew--it has succeeded ,in
producing synagogual mortgages
instead of attendance, loyalty, ad-
herence.
Judaism is in a state of flux.
Who is going to form a new mold
that will fashion it into a spiritual
force that will be acceptable to
Judaism in general?
Are we going to depend solely
on a pulpit that is everlastingly
finding new and fantastic def~i-
nitions for the God of Israe~l-?
Shall we look to the laity for
salvation ? A laity that is paying
enough interest on synagogual
mortgages to sarve a large portion
of world Jewry from misery and
suffering and spiritual decary?
Without the synagogule there
can be no vital, creative Judaism.
Without a Judalsm that is at
once undersrtanable, seatl-serch-
ing, inspiring, there is no need for
the synatgogue.
Jewry in America is fasty being
reduced to a racial and a phralog.

i' "MENORAH, OR CHRISTMAS TREE"
r~iAST EVENING, shortly after dark, I passed the house of a neig~h-
81bor,' on my street, and I was surprised to see two candles burning
.in a window. I did not know that a Jew lived there. Last night
was the eve of the second day of Chanukah ,the Feast~of D~edication,
and the ritual requires two candles to be lit in the Menorah, or can-
delabra. I peered more intently and noticed thait the two lights were
electric bulbs set in candlesticks of special construction. Above these
lights, suspended in the window, was a wreath of holly. No Jew hived
in that home. It was a Christmas decoration. Yet, two candles
burned on the second night of Chanukah--burned where, in accord-
ance to the Jewish law, the Chanukah candles should be placed--on
the window sill, exposed to public view, "le'firsume nisaw," to an-
nounce the miracle, to publicize the fact that a miracle had been per.

rHEREair~e ~Jewish homes in the land which, this day, do not have
SChanishah lights and a Menorah exposed to view, but which have
cleared the front room to allow space for a Christmas tree. While
I mistook the Christian- home with its two candles last night for a
Jewish home, no one will mistake the ornamented and electrically-
lighted tree, visible from the street, as belonging to a Jewish home.
I admire the Christian who is observant of his religion. I would not
have him otherwise. The Christian admires the Jew who is observant
of his own religion and has nothing but scorn, though ofttimes con-
cealed, for the Jew who mimics his Christian neighbor. I should resent
such actions by a Jew, were l a Christian. The Jew can't possibly be
sincere. I distrust the non-Jew who imitates a Jew in the observance of
his rFeligion. I impute motives of ridicule to such acts. It is not in-
cumbent- upon the Christian to observe my religion. He was not
taught to believe in the ritual that I follow though he believe in the
same God. Likewise, the Jew was not taught to observe Christmas,
whick: is ~purely a religious festival for Christians. I have had Jews
excuse. their use of the Christmas tree in the home with the statement,
"This is the time of year when good-will prevails. It is purely a gesture
of the spirit of the time. The children enjoy it a -the tree, the lights
and ~the gifts." .That's all very fine. The statement is based on ig-
norance. Christmas is the Festival of the Nativity. It commemorates
the date of the ~birth of Jesus, t~he Messiah of the Christ~ians of the
earth. As such it can have no significance for the Jew. If he -ob-
serve it for its exchange of gifts, devoid of its religious meaning; and
those Jews who do, do it only in that sense; he is to be censured by
his Christian neighbors for belittline a day so holy to them. And
Christmas is a holy day in the Christian calendar. The birth of a
God, the son of God, the Savior, is not to be taken lightly, by the
adherents of that faith, or any other faith. Few thinking Christians
take. this literally. They have been taught the spiritual significance of
the event and its symbolism. All other creeds respect the teachings
and ceremonials of contemporary religions.

substituted a Christmas tree ?

pbERMIT ME to digress, dear friends, and to tell you something that
a I would not wish my Christian audience to hear. But ,as most of
them are attending church services this morning, fewer Christians will
hear this than on a~ny regular Sunday. Were l a Christian I would
present the participation by Jews in Christmas festivities, publicly or
privately.' You don't believe in the Savior, why make a fuss over His ~
birth? Oh, you observe this season because you want to send gifts
to your non-Jewish friends ? Send them Purim gifts-Mishloach
mans. Or, send them Chanukah tokens. Christmas affords you an
opportunity to demonstrate your esteem? That's a very poor demon-
stration. Where is your esteem all the rest of the year ? Were there
no reminder at Christmas time would you send a gift ? I doubt it,
.No,' no, dear friend, those excuses you offer are very weak. The truth
is that you are ignorant of Judaism. You are also ignrpant of human
nature. The average human being wants to be alone with his kind
for a religious observance. The presence of your Semitic features
as a participant, with him, of so holy a day, to him, as Christmas,
does not add to his enjoyment of the festival. As he passes your
home and sees the lights on the tree, he wonders at you. When he
passes and sees your Chanukah lempel--your Menorah, he admires you.

SOW, a word to our Christian friends. Today, Christmas Day, you
are~ happy with your new-born Babe. He was a Jewish child--
his mother a Jewess. His blood-relatives still live on the face of the
earth. If you love Him you must love His family, also. All we ask
is that you show it. Make this season one of real, sincere, good-will
and fellowship. Let this little child lead you over the paths He trod.
Learn from Him to love all men. As for us, we shall spread light
through the Chanukah Menorah, burning on the window ledge, to pro-
claim the miracle of the ages, the survival of the pepole saved by the
Maccabees.



OPTOMPTRIST
""22 YEARS IN MIAMP .


SO, the Jew who observes Christmas does it for the beauty of it
Sfotr his children; he sees in it an excuse for showering gifts on his
family and friends; and, he finds a means of pouring out the love he
has for his fellowmen--his spirit of good-will ? How tragic! A Jew
who does not find in Judaism an opportunity to lavish his love upon
his family; who does not see beauty in the practices of Judaism-in
the home ritual for the various festivals; and who lacks an outlet ~for
his pent-up emotions of love for mankind in the limitless breadth of
Jewish teachings and practices. Passover and the Seder lack beauty
for his children. Purim and the Shiloach Manos the sending of gifts
to the poor and needy, and the exchange of presents among friends and.
neighbors, falls short of permitting him to demonstrate his affections
for his family. The all-embracing and universal-encompassing teach-
ings of Judaism restrain his desire to embrace all the children of men
--the children of the Common Father of Men. How pitiful, that a
Jew should grow up from childhood so ignorant of the wealth of his
own people's religion ? How poor must that home have been that a
child should cast ~longing eyes into the home of another ? How barren
must that jewish home have been all that is truly Jewish to have
raised ~a generation that sees something novel in the practice, by an-
other, of those beautiful rituals that have been borrowed from his
father's house. I could trace the bond between Christmas and Chan-
ukah, Ijut this is not the time to do it. Christmas is beautiful for the
Christian-when he understands it. Had it not been for the self-
sacriffee of the Maceabees there would have been no Jews after the
reigri at Antiochus IV. Obviously there coidld not have been born, 185
years after the Maceabeean revolt, among Jews, of their flesh and
blood, one who was hailed as the Son of God, and through whose faith
millions haive been made happy. The Maccabees rendered a service

('Reprinted by Special Request)
She's afraid of a roach, she'll scream at a mouse
But she'll tackle a husband as big as a house
She'll take him for better, she'll take him for worse,
She'll split his head open and then' be his nurse.
And when he is well and can get out of bed
She'll pick up a tea pot and throw at his hiead.
She's faithful, keen sighted, loving and kind,
She's crafty, she's witty, deaf, dumb and blind.
She'll lift a man up, she'll cast a man down,
She'll crown him her king, she'll make him her clown.
You fancy she's this, but you find that she's that,
For she'll play like a woman and fight like a cat.
In the morning she will, in the evening she won't,
And you're always expecting she does but she don't.
She'll adore you in truth and ignore your worst fib--

DON'T FOOL YOURSELF
A small boy dashed out of a
corner drug store. He was in great
delight over something, and the
clerks and customers were all
laughing.
He had gone into the store all
by himself to get weighed, and
was so small that he could not
reach the slot. So a clerk put
his penny in for him, but, at the
same time, he jammed his big foot
down on the scales platform.
The little boy didn't weigh more
than about fifty pounds, but the
cleork's- foot made the indicator fly
And so the boy dashed out to
tell his folks. He thought he had
suddenly grown to be almost a
man.
Often a grown man gets fooled
the same way when something is
put over on him that makes him
feel bigger than he really is.
Perhaps a man gets a big of-
fice in Washingt~on, with salary
and responsibility too large for his
size. And if he doesn't realize that
sinister Yact, he becomes ~ery
,'smart" and important. And then,
if he loses his easy job, he finds

Jewesses who give of their very

not the danger that we will (or

prove that Judaism in a sense finds
its greatest accomplishment out-
side the synagogue ?
Why is it that many who are
conspicuous in Jewry's behalf
are not synagogue attendants?
It may be that they do not need
the synagogue for its spiritual
values.
Perhaps Judaism means some-
thing entirely different to thent
from anything they might learn in
the synagogue.
Who knows--maybe if the syna-

of our synagogues do ?
They refused admission on Ros1
Hashanah and Yom Kippur unless
men either paid up their arrears
or came to the office and made ad-

Just think of it. The most
damnable situation that ever ex-

agogue.. The otherwise erudite
and sharp witted synagogue spon-
