of dishonest dealings
The first to accuse the Talmud
that it permits the Jews to perform
all sorts of dishonest acts in their
dealings With Christians was Nich-
olas Donin of La Rochelle, France,
a convert from Judaism to Chris-
tianity, who lived in Paris in the
liist hall ol the thirteenth century.
Ii was in revenge for his having
been publicly excommunicated, with
the usual ceremonies, by Rabbi Je-
eliiel of Paris, because of doubts he
had expressed concerning the va-
lidity of Talmudical tradition, that
he embraced Christianity and join-
ed the Franciscan order. In 1238
Donin formulated 35 charges against
llie teachings ol the Talmud and
personally presented them to Pope
Gregory IX. In his charges he main-

larly in the quinellas and daily

entertained with the monkey jock-
eys riding the dogs. These clever
little riders were extremely popular
at the West Flagler Kennel club re-
cently and have been an added at-
traction, giving considerable enter-
tainment to the patrons in special
races for such events. These mon-

What we need is not a new concep-
tion of God to meet cosmic, atomic,
behavioristic and God knows what
not theories, we need rather a living
spiritual idea, a religious inspiration
tor a humanity dominated by the
machine and engrossed in material-
ism. The indifference or the masses
and of the so-called intellectual
group towards organized religion is
not due to the lack of rationalism
in religion, as so many rabbis would
make us believe, but to the contrary,
to the overdose of rationalism. Peo-
ple do not go to churches and syna-
gogues to satisfy their need for in-
tellectual searching, but rather to
satisfy their emotional and spiritual
yearning. They are little concerned
with metaphysical argumentations
and theological definitions of God.
The God man's heart is seeking and
yearning for, the God of daily relig-
ious experience, is the product of
man's consciousness of his insignif-
icance and impotency as he faces
the universe plus the practical de-
mands of human needs and human
after it has been shorn of that in-
heritance which alone explains and
made its existence possible to this
day. For almost two thousand years
we suffered persecution and martyr-
dom for the sake of ideals, all orig-
inating and culminating in Israel's
unique idea of God. We are the
apostles of the Oneness of God in
the midst of the polytheistic pagan
world of antiquity, we contrasted
our ideal of truth to the Hellenic
ideal of beauty, our ideal of Justice
to the Roman ideal of might. We
held on uncompromisingly to our
monotheism as opposed to the
Christian trinity. We taught the be-
lief in man's free-will in contrast to
Islam's fatalism. What justification
is there to continue as a small mi-
nority and to continuously being
discriminated against and even per-
secuted, for the sake of a shallow
humanism which advocates the wor-
ship of man. It is a strange coinci-
dence that our Jewish humanists
are Zionists. As Zionists, they could
justify the separate identity of the
Jewish people on purely national-
istic grounds. But, what about the
vast majority of Jews who refuse to
accept Zionism as the sole solution
of the Jewish problem? Should they
continue the martyrdom? What a
strange spectacle of humanist lead-
ers seeking the fulfillment of their
human ideal in limited nationalism,

zation of that all-embracing proph-
Dr. Kaplan claims that it was
just as important to teach people to
give up their idols and false beliefs
as it was to be in possession of the
true religion. How paradoxical for
a Humanist! If pure monotheism
and ethical prophetism are the great
achievements which the Jewish peo-
ple gave to humanity, there is still
some justification in our preserva-
tion in the face of the fact that
more than two thousand million of
men and women still adhere to what
even humanists must concede to be

Too Many Laws
j-r Scripture Reading, Exodus, Chapter XX, Versa 1-16. incl.
^>1IK weekly portion read in the synagogues yesterday contained the
Decalogue. Some English translations of the Bible give .slightly different
ins. Moses, in reporting it. in Deuteronomy, uses different words in
several of the Commandments. I am not concerned, this morning, with
the relative merits of the several versions.
I AM interested 111 the merits of the charge, by many people, that there
are "too many laws." A Jew knows that he has "Toryog mitSVOS"
613 commands. He knows, also, that that's too much to expect Horn any-
one. Believing that lie can't possibly obey them all. he starts with the
thought of making no effort to obey any of them. He feels that, as lie
must fall far short of the mark and be considered a sinner, he may just
as well sin all the way. However, having some sort of a conscience, the
individual selects a group of laws that he believes it possible for him to
obey and these laws he defends as being "essential." Many men and wom-
en have told me, "Well, 1 obey the Ten Commandments. That's enough
lor anyone." I agree. Nay. I go further. I say, "Even that's too much."
I have my doubts as to the exact number of people who observe the Dec-
alogue. It would not require much ink not many drops of it to write
the numerical figure that denotes the total number of human beings that
obey all the Ten Commandments. I make no accusations. I suggest that
each of you make an honest appraisal of yourself. Check over the full list
of ten laws and eliminate those that you have violated. Most people look
at the Ten Commandments as did Willie. Willie's Sunday school teacher
had just finished lecturing the class on the punishment for sin. Anxious
to determine the extent to which her lesson had impressed the class, she
asked. "What would happen if you broke one of the Ten Command-
ments?" Willie's hand shot up into sight. The teacher called on him. He
said. "Teacher, there'd be nine left." Using that as a basis for my own
computations and for my estimate of the observance of the Decalogue by
the people who claim to obey these ten laws. I should say that there are
less than nine left, considerably less.
OH. I've stepped on someone's corns. I've touched a sensitive spot. I
can almost see the scowls. The anger reaches me through the micro-
phone. How da re I accuse so many fine and upright people of being so
derelict as to disobey the Ten Commandments? Well, let's figure this out.
together. Do you mind if I do it 111 reverse order? 1 have a reason for it.
My reason is not. as some may claim, that. I have a natural Inclination to
do things backwards. Nor is it that as some believe Jews write backwards
and. therefore, our Commandments must be read from the last to the
lust. My reason is based on my desire to have a means ot gauging. Ii you
tell me that you are rich, I can check you at the bank. If you say that you
tron 1 can gi\e you a weight to hit. 11 you lay claims to a know-l-
ot music, .: lence, I can engage you In a conversation to de-
li linn.r the extent of your knowledge. But. should you tell me that you
have faith, that you believe in God and love Him, I have no known med-
ium for testing your religiosity. So. were I to start with the first Com-
mandment, you would have an unfair advantage.

LET us begin at the last Commandment. 110' Have you overcome 1
ousness? Are you free from envy? Do you ever cast longii. 1
upon that which is forbidden m the last Commandment? Have you never
expressed a desire for that which Is, Impliedly, forbidden you by the last
word in the Decalogue? (9) Have you never lied about another? Have
you never borne false witness by slandering another? Have you ever been
silent when, in your presence, the reputation of another was maligned?
By your silence you bore false witness. You should have defended the
innocent. <8> Now, as to the eighth Commandment: you've never put a
gun up to a man's head to compel him to give you his wallet, so you've
not violated the eighth Commandment. Nonsense! Have you ever mis-
represented an article you were selling to the purchaser? That's stealing,
within the law. Have you ever made an excessive and unfair profit? Have
you ever delivered an interior article to that ordered and paid for? Well,
do you call that honesty? 17> The seventh Commandment: You never
seduced your neighbor's wife so you're innocent of violating the seventh
Commandment. That's very fine of you. But. have you kept your mind
out of the "gutter"? Has your conversation been free from lewdness?
Have you shunned all unclean references to sex? 161 Of course you hav-
en't committed murder, or you would be in the penitentiary. That's no
proof for me. You may have shed human blood by the bloodless method.
How? Have you ever drained the blood from anyone's face through an
insult that humiliated that person? Have you ever compelled an employee
to jeopardize his health in your service? That hasn't added any to his |
length of life. Have you ever pressed a debtor to the wall, figuratively, **
to the degree where he contemplates suicide or a crime against another?
That hasn't added to his life's span. These acts are as murderous as the
actual shedding of blood. <5> I won't insult you by charging you with vio-
lating the fifth Commandment. You love your father and mother. You
have shown them every possible deference and have accorded them all
honor. You have always avoided bringing them a moment of unhappiness.
Never have they, even for a day, had occasion to worry because of some
act by you. Of course, you have cared for them in their old age as well as
they have cared for and provided all your wants when you were a child
dependent on them. If you haven't. I can't quite understand that you
have obeyed the fifth Commandment. (4) Now, I have no foundation for
any charge that you have violated the fourth Commandment. Rest? Why.
you enjoy a day of rest. The Sabbath is a blessing. Yes, but have you
spent it as a holy day? And, by the way, it's a common error to believe

With anything inappropriate? So much for the third Commandment. .2.
You do not worship any idols or any graven images. You worship God in
the abstract. You do not place your business or your career above God.
No. of course not. You wouldn't hurt a fellow human being, one of God s
child.. 1 could make an extra dollar, would you? You wouldn t
suspend the'operation of one of the laws Inspired by God if by so doing
vou stood to gain, would you? In other words, you wouldn't put anything
else above God? You wouldn't worship, honor, or serve some pet hobby
with greater zeal Hum you worship God? And if you did. it wouldn t be
worshipping an idol, would it? You tell me. What would it be? .1) Now,
we come to the first Commandment. It's a statement ol fact. You re so ,
broad-minded that you wont argue with God. He says Hi 1 and you ac-
cept His word. That'.-- very fine and noble of you. You have a great deal
ot faith, How do 1 know.' Why, t can't ma sin it- Thus,
you've proven to me that you obey the Ten Commandments. Of course.
so busy m the observance of the Decalogue, you have no time to
consider the other laws. That's just too bad.
YOU think me terribly sarcastic. I appear to be an awful cynic. IS'
ging your pardon, you are slightly mistaken. 1 am neither. I just
walk about with open eyes. Just so long as the human race will be satis-
fied to eliminate the laws of life from its practice, we shall be confronted
with the spectacles ol misery and suffering. When we learn that we an
not the sources of wisdom, when we realize that the laws of God are not
obstacles to success and happiness but that they are aids, we shall put
them into practice and insure happiness lor all men. There are not too
many laws. There arc too few observers of the law. The Torah Is a
"Toras Chayim" a law of life and all that life implies. We live and
progress with the law. Without it well, we are just as we are today

Round Clubs. Inc., of which Henry

"South Seas" is exhibiting monsters
of the sea in surroundings which
have atracted many and caused
gasps of astonishment from the pa-
trons. Captain Thompson, who is
in charge of the exhibit while cruis-
ing the Carribean sea some years
ago, anchored in one of the Keys
for a night because of an approach-
ing storm. While at anchor a mas-
sive chain was discovered bringing
the beginning of an interesting
treasure hunt. It was during this
hunt that Captain Thompson dis-
covered the most wonderful sub-
marine life ever before seen. He de-
termined to have as many people
see these treasures beneath the sur-
face of the sea as was humanly pos-
sible and so began the work of
tranplanting sea life to a ship. This
is now in this famous .ship, "South

one worth seeing.

Philo Judaeus, the leading Judeo-
Alexandrlan philosopher, in his

Apostates and proselytes. In com-
paring the two he says:
"It is necessary that, as in the
sun shadow follows the body, so also
a participation in all other virtues
must inevitably follow the giving
due honour to the living God; for
those who come over to this worship
become at once prudent, and tem-
perate, and modest, and gentle, and

able, and just, and magnanimous,
and lovers of truth, and superior to

may see that those who forsake the
holy laws of God are intemperate,
shameless, unjust, disreputable, weak
minded, quarrelsome, companions of
falsehood and perjury, willing to
sell their liberty for luxurious i
ing. for strong wine, for sweetmeats,
and for beauty, for pleasures of the

Among the ancient Semites the
deportation of a people from its
land was viewed as a severance from
n- god. For the ancient Hebrews it
was one of the bitterest ingredients
in their cup to hear the heathen
taunt: "These are the people of the
Lord, and yet, out of His land are
they gone forth" (Ezekiel 36,20). In
the religion of the ancient Semites
illy each nation had not only
Its own land but its own god. The
god was as closely associated with
the land as with the nation. A god
had a vested right, so to speak, in
his land. Irrespective of his relation
inhabitant.-. Thus even in the
i ., n| ol the removal of his worship-
pers, the land was still theoretically
rid. The new settlers drafted
into Samaria by the king of Assyria
utter the deportation ol the 10
tribes, imported their own gods; but
avoc wrought among them by
led them u> acknowledge "the
: the land" 'II Kings 17. 241T.).
On the other hand, it was an ac-
cepted principle that a god could
not be fitly worshipped outside of
Ins own land (Joshua 22, 19; II
Sam. 26. 19: Hosea 9. 3ff.). This idea
finds expression even in connection
with the worship of the God of Is-
rael. Naaman asks for two mules'
burden of Palestinian soil in order
to render possible the worship of
the God of Israel at Damascus. The
exiles in Babylon were at a loss how-
to sing the Lord's song in a strange
land (Psalm 1371. The land of a god
corresponded with the land U1
worshippers (see William Rofcn
