An Unhappy Incident is Closed
Last Monday morning Rabbi S. M. Machtel of the Radio Bynagog directed the attention of the Jew-
, ,'""""' '" "'l",rl "f "" n""" ' r The < hurch of the Open n..... at her church opposite the county courthouse.
Ihe Jewish Meridian. In line With its definite p.....,, f protecUng the fair name of Jewry, and fear-
less In Its condemnaUon of anything that may tend to disturb the fair and peaceful relations between
the Jewish and non-Jewish citizens of this gnat Cosmopolitan community, felt that it was its duty to
tboroughl) Investigate this matter.
I he Jew must |. fair and we therefore communicated with Mrs. Bern, told her of our stand in the
matter and. in fairness to her. asked that she furnish us with a copy (so far as she could I of her sermon.
rhunday morning the excerpts of th.....rmon were delivered to us. Frankly we did not feel that it
Should have been delivered. It quoted the Protocols of the Klders of /.ion. proven time and again as the
most contemptible pieces Of anti-Semitic literature ever conceived. It quoted the "Hidden Hand" by Ger-
ald B. Winrod, despicable "Meshumed" who. by the way, was driven out of Miami about four years
ago because of his tile behavior. It was wrong. We. together with Rabbi S. M. Machtei, then called upon
.Mrs. Berg. In words that were definite, unvarnished and plain we told of the attitude of every right-
thinking man and woman, be he Jew or Christian, towards any attempt, intentional or otherwise, which
inculcated race prejudice, bigotry and intolerance.
Mrs. Berg, after listening carefully, expressed her regret at the entire incident. She expressed her
sorrow that her words had been misunderstood and agreed with us that the sermon was "unwise." She
agreed to help dispel the whole incident and furnished the following statement:
"Rabbi S. \l. Machlei and Mr. /. I / luu v been surprised to learn that portions of n sermon on Sunday nigbt were misunderstood
by (i rtain indix iduals, that in fai t. a portion of the sermon u interpreted / mean that I beliei ed
the hu directly responsible for the world's ills. I beg the privilege of stating through tin- u in us ol this papei land an) other open channel) that //>/> impression was erroneous. I make this
statement because I abhor anything which in any way engenders race hatred."
[Signed) Virginia Brandt Berg.
In fairness to Mrs. Berg we want to say that we believe that she is sincere in her regrets. It is hu-
man to err. divine to forgive. The Jew, too often indeed, has been sinned against but has never borne
any animosity or ill will. In the same honest spirit and evidence of good will In which this apology has
been extended to the Jewish people c>r Miami, so ask we thai it be accepted.
The matter is and should remain a closed incident.
In its humble way The Jewish Floridian is happy that it has been afforded the opportunity of being
of service to the Jewish people.

"Idol-Worship and Idle-Worship"
Scripture Reading, Exodus, Chapter XX, Verses 1-5 hid.
MODERN religions believe themselves free from idol-worship. Most re-
igious people shudder at the thought of the Idol-worshippers of old.
The thinking man or woman of today is convinced that the sun-worship-
pers or fire-worshippers ol ancient times, as well as the heathens who
worshipped trees, wain, or any other natural phenomenon, were wor-
shipping idols. The conviction Is strong within many ol us today thai the
inhabitants ol this earth who preceded 11s were extremely stupid, and.
that we ol this day, are Cod'.- mit to mankind. We juduc those of past
generations by the relies we have found in their temples and in their bur-
ied home.- and pubhe buildings Have we a right to do that? Is our reading
of their inscriptions the true one' Are our interpretations Oi their symbols
the correct one-'' 1 wonder
LET us suppose thai, through some natural catastrophe, a large portion
of our country was buried beneath the mound. A thousand or two
thousand years hence, or. possibly five or ten thousand year.- later, t!
inhabitants of the earth 1 .'ati and uncover, or. as they would then say.
"dlfiCOVer." some relics Ol an ancient civilization I That would be our civ-
ilization.) what would they say oi our religions? What inferences would
they draw I10111 the relics? Finding crucifixes and Inscriptions they would
say that we were heathens and worshipped idols. They would say that we
deified man. Finding ruins 01 synagogues they would inter from the lions
that ornament the Aror. Hakkodesh. the Repository lor the Holy Scroll,
and that appear i Decalogue, that we worshipped
the king of the jungle Who would then be to galnsaj them? Who would
there be to state !!.. ns and crucifixes, these lions and scrolls,
wen' merely symbol ibois?
BY what powi 1 i In us do we d lin to slander the ancient- by calling
-m idol-wi : d nts oi religion express the beliei
that the Images ol the sun. birds, fish, or tree.- that we find among the
relics ol ancient civil are not the nods they worshipped but merely
sacred signs winch they used to symbolize their God-concepts, Divine at-
tributes: symbols which served to help concentrate Ha' attention ol the
worshipper, to keep I from wandering and distracting him during
worship. I once visited a synagog on the walls of which an artist had
painted a leopard, an eagle, a I.art reindeer I, and a lion. A non-Jew
would ha\i a ::-!.' '0.1 umi 1 animals, otherwise.
what relationship 1- thi re betwei 1. them ind the synagogui 1 The non-Jew
does not know of the verse In the Talmudlc Tractate. "Avoth" 1 Ethics),
which reads. "Judah, the -on ol Tcma, said. Be strong a- a leopard, light
as an eagle, fleet as a hart, and mighty a- a lion, to do the will of thy
Father who is 111 Heaven'. The artist merely portrayed this verse to re-
mind the worshippers in that synagogue
IT behooves us to be more circumspect m Judging the ancients or in un-
derstanding t in practl ors ol strange faiths in our
present day. There is some doubt in my mind a.- to whether there are idol-
worshippers. But. there is definite prool at hand that among us. in this
day. there are Idle-worshippers. I spell this idle, i-d-1-e. Their prayi .
idle. yam. The- congl to pray without any concentration on the
Deity. People go through the formality of worship, reciting wok: and
phrases, formulas and ritual.-, whose ideal- and lessons are foreign to their
natures, and in whose efficacy they have little or no faith. It is idle-
worship. It is lip-worship, it Is wind and breath, it the worshippers
gave thought to the word- ol 'lair prs : e would be a no'.:'
change in their conduct towards their fellow men. Their character- would
be improved and tin- would be reflected m the social and commercial life
of the community. There would be .1 le sening ol the base pi ictict
common. Harmony and brotherly love would replace thi reed and .hatred
that exist. 11 religion would mean anything to thi 1 rs it would
first manifest Itself in human intercourse on earthin thi here." The
"hereafter" would come as a natural sequel to the hie "here." I :
what I have said on previous occasii lat the breaking down of
religions today is due to the state ol irreligiousity that exists within re-
ligions. The youth will have none of the sham. The youngi : .'ion is
not interested in idle-worship, They are not blmdtd by forms that appear
to have no meaning lor the adherents ol a dogmatic faith. To them it is
all vain. It is an idle gesture.
THE .structure ol our religious life today is idolatrous. We have carried
over the symbols from antiquity. But, we have neglected to impress
ourselves with the noble ideals and idea.-, that these symbols represented.
We see the image but arc blind to the principle that it represents. When
the ancients observed the sun it directed their a.tention to the Creator.
When the heathen concentrated or. the water, it symbolized to him the
creative and productive lone, ol God. They knew that all life originated
in the water at the command of God. But, what of us? We reverence the
Torah. the Holy Scroll. We fondle it and kiss it. But the laws contained
therein are ignored. Should the Torah fall from the hand ol the worship-
per who holds it during the service, all who are present must fast. But, we
declare no fast days when the law- taught by the Torah are trampled un-
der foot. And we call the ancients Idol-worshippers,
SOME so-called "Christians" will reverence the cross, will worship the
Saviour, and yet will go about their daily duties hating some of then
neighbors and persecuting them. They will recite the Lord's Prayer, say-
ing, ". And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors But, do
they? What is that if not vain and idle-worship?
THERE is nothing wrong with religious teachings. The trouble lies
within those who refuse to be taught. We have had inspired religious
leaders. But, there have been no followers, or, at best, very few. Zealots of
all faitlis have devoted their energies to destroying the unbelievers."

What Is Wrong
with the Bible?

a leading and a judging. Broad as
were the activities of the prophets,
the vehicle1 cii expression for their
multiform activities reai Ins into the
sublime. Noble as are their concep-
tions, they are no more sublime
than the words m which they are
couched.
Strange it is that without the use
I of an unusual word or an unfamiliar
expression, the language oi the
prophets rolls along like successive
;n als of thunder until their Inspired
words knock at the very gates of the
Infinite.
Height eif Emotion
Mar. will never travel farther from
this mundane sphere toward the in-
finite than he will on the wings e>l
the words oi the- prophets,
Spiritual progress in this world
reached its uttermost climax in the
prophets and never has there been
such Inspired wends as theirs, it has
only been vouchsafed to a very few
of all who havi trod this earth to
ess the talent to make the In-
animate word burn with holy fervor
For all its noble passages, the
word- employed In the Bible are
very simple and usually of the
shorter type. In the English trans-
lation the words are usually the
short Saxon rather than the longer
type derived from the Latin.
The- Bible :- readily read by young
pi ople.
Its richness grows on i as our
experiences in life increase With
the passing ol year-, the truths in
the book become more' and more im-
pressive, and yet each truth is
clothed in some Interesting, roman-
tic and colorful garb.
The proverbs with their hundreds
of homely, wise saving- are- fre-
quently couched In metaphorical
language see thai each bit Ol wisdom
is the kernel In a quaint receptacle,
Freshness Is Asset
Freshness ol viewpoint and ex-
pression is the chie-1 attribute- of the
Bible. It was written when civihza-
&
APPEARING AT THE .Jewish Chastity
nvou theatre ()). Friendship?
ii story Is told ol a Jew who
called upon his Christian friend
while 'he- latter was dining When
the Jew was invited to have some
ham which formed pan of the meal,
he declined cm the ground oi re-
ligious principles. "Will you have-
then, a cup ol wine?" asked th
host, but that, tec was declined or.
the excuse- thai a .lew must not
drink wine from a vessel touched by
;, non-Jew, The host then pulled
nut a gun and pointing it at the
jew. .-aid; "Either you drink that
cup ol Wine or you an' a de-ad man "
The Jew quickly emptied the cup ol
wine- and his host a- quickly apolo-
gized lor having caused his lrienel to
commit a sin against his religion
"Hut while you had the1 nun pointed
at me." retorted the Jew, "why did
you not force me '" cat your ham
instead ol drink your wine?"
I was reminded of the above story
on reading a dissertation in a book
oi responsa by the famous Rabb.
Jair Hayyini Bacharach 11630-17021
who was rabbi for many important
German Jewish communities H 8
legal decisions were compiled and
publish under the title ol "Hawwol
Yair" tented city of Yair, nam
of a district mentioned In the Bible.
The rabbinical decisions of Rabti
Bacharach are frequently referred
I to by talmudical scholars even today
and are considered a.- aiithoiit.it n
The SUDStance Ol the case- upe n
which the learned rabbi was called
to adjudicate is as follows: A Jew
ol Frankfort had to travel to the
city oi Oppenheim, which was m
another Gorman state. Immlgratior
laws, then a.s now. compelled the
traveler to provide himself with the
necessary documents demanded bv
the immigration officers. To help -i
Mend who resided in Oppenhein,
but had his wife and daughter liv-
ing in Frankfort, the Prankfi rt .1,-v,
had the last mentioned latins cnt.
end in his passport a.s his own wife
and daughter. Arriving at the Iron-
tier, the German Official Rabbi
Bacharach puts it. be-in ,.|| a
iContinued \e\ Wee- |
tion was young, when the- concep-
tion of monotheism, with Its free-
dom from an enslaving idol worship
til] new and the world had not
grown weary In seeing its ideals col-
lapse.
Only the Greeks, ill their marvel-
ous civilization that to this day <
tounds the world enjoyed tins char-
acteristic oi freshness, youth and
buoyancy.
The Greeks, however, merely con-
cerned themselves with matter.- ol
tins world or playful, half-serious
worship of their many gods and
goddesses while- the Bible concerns
itself with the loftiest essays at spir-
itual perfection,
Nowhere in the- Bible- do you linei
a tired or worn out viewpoint to-
ward life. It was written when life
was young and the nation and the
people were- m the- making. Only m
Ecclesiastes do you find some philo-
sophical expressions on the futility
of life.
Otherwise, the book fairly throbs
with hope and unquenchable energy.
In the whole book one does not find
one- slothful or Indifferent character,
Every personage l- everlastingly cm
the- move.
The Bible i.s a book of amazing
energy and action!

Even passion must be Bade subservient to poetic romanticism; a fine sense of practicality Bust govern all things: "Love alone is sweet; but with bread, sweeter." Tor upon three things the world sands money, money, and monty." Therefore, "Pawn your goods. but be .i potentate." Tins same knowlid.' ol reality, too. made poignantly clear to the pauper the eleI influences of cash.

But one must work, no matter how unskilled. "Even a bear can be taught to dame. As for the proletariat ol tit\ak will undertake to be even a wet nurse." Alas, the reimneration was paltry. "AH cobblers to barefoot." This may have been due to thl fatal versatility Of Jew-. undertaking through the necessity ol earning a livelihood, all manner ol occupation.

"Carouse, O pauper, dung %  Cheap During an epidemic even a goat Is an animal." from all the proverbs, one over%  belming characteristic can be deuced: the uncommon common *nse of the Jew.

I beg the privilege of stating through tin/> impression was erroneous. I make this statement because I abhor anything which in any way engenders race hatred." [Signed) VIRGINIA BRANDT BERG. In fairness to Mrs. Berg we want to say that we believe that she is sincere in her regrets. It is human to err. divine to forgive. The Jew, too often indeed, has been sinned against but has never borne any animosity or ill will. In the same honest spirit and evidence of good will In which this apology has been extended to the Jewish people c>r Miami, so ask we thai it be accepted. The matter is and should remain a closed incident. In its humble way The Jewish Floridian is happy that it has been afforded the opportunity of being of service to the Jewish people. •Announcements!

M ODERN religions believe themselves free from idol-worship. Most reigious people shudder at the thought of the Idol-worshippers of old. The thinking man or woman of today is convinced that the sun-worshippers or fire-worshippers ol ancient times, as well as the heathens who worshipped trees, wain, or any other natural phenomenon, were worshipping idols. The conviction Is strong within many ol us today thai the inhabitants ol this earth who preceded 11s were extremely stupid, and. that we ol this day, are Cod'.mit to mankind. We juduc those of past generations by the relies we have found in their temples and in their buried home.and pubhe buildings Have we a right to do that? Is our reading of their inscriptions the true one' Are our interpretations Oi their symbols the correct one-'' 1 wonder L ET us suppose thai, through some natural catastrophe, a large portion of our country was buried beneath the mound.

Finding crucifixes and Inscriptions they would say that we were heathens and worshipped idols. They would say that we deified man. Finding ruins 01 synagogues they would inter from the lions that ornament the Aror. Hakkodesh. the Repository lor the Holy Scroll, and that appear i Decalogue, that we worshipped the king of the jungle Who would then be to galnsaj them? Who would there be to state !!.. % %  ns and crucifixes, these lions and scrolls, wen' merely symbol ibois? B Y what powi 1 i In us do we d lin to slander the ancientby calling %  -m idol-wi : d nts oi religion express the beliei that the Images ol the sun. birds, fish, or tree.that we find among the relics ol ancient civil are not the nods they worshipped but merely sacred signs winch they used to symbolize their God-concepts, Divine attributes: symbols which served to help concentrate Ha' attention ol the worshipper, to keep I from wandering and distracting him during worship. I once visited a synagog on the walls of which an artist had painted a leopard, an eagle, a I. art reindeer I, and a lion. A non-Jew would ha\i a ::-!.' '0.1 umi 1 animals, otherwise. what relationship 1thi re betwei 1. them ind the synagogui 1 The non-Jew does not know of the verse In the Talmudlc Tractate. "Avoth" 1 Ethics), which reads. "Judah, the -on ol Tcma, said. Be strong aa leopard, light as an eagle, fleet as a hart, and mighty aa lion, to do the will of thy Father who is 111 Heaven'. The artist merely portrayed this verse to remind the worshippers in that synagogue I T behooves us to be more circumspect m Judging the ancients or in understanding t in practl ors ol strange faiths in our present day. There is some doubt in my mind a.to whether there are idolworshippers. But. there is definite prool at hand that among us. in this day. there are Idle-worshippers. I spell this idle, i-d-1-e. Their prayi idle. yam. Thecongl to pray without any concentration on the Deity. People go through the formality of worship, reciting WOK: and phrases, formulas and ritual.-, whose idealand lessons are foreign to their natures, and in whose efficacy they have little or no faith. It is idleworship. It is lip-worship, it Is wind and breath, it the worshippers gave thought to the wordol 'lair prs : e would be a no'.:' change in their conduct towards their fellow men. Their characterwould be improved and tinwould be reflected m the social and commercial life of the community. There would be .1 le sening ol the base pi ictict common. Harmony and brotherly love would replace thi reed and .hatred that exist. 11 religion would mean anything to thi 1 rs it would first manifest Itself in human intercourse on earth— in thi here." The "hereafter" would come as a natural sequel to the hie "here." I : what I have said on previous occasii lat the breaking down of religions today is due to the state ol irreligiousity that exists within religions. The youth will have none of the sham. The youngi : .'ion is not interested in idle-worship, They are not blmdtd by forms that appear to have no meaning lor the adherents ol a dogmatic faith. To them it is all vain. It is an idle gesture. T HE .structure ol our religious life today is idolatrous. We have carried over the symbols from antiquity. But, we have neglected to impress ourselves with the noble ideals and idea.-, that these symbols represented. We see the image but arc blind to the principle that it represents. When the ancients observed the sun it directed their a.tention to the Creator. When the heathen concentrated or. the water, it symbolized to him the creative and productive lone, ol God. They knew that all life originated in the water at the command of God. But, what of us? We reverence the Torah. the Holy Scroll. We fondle it and kiss it. But the laws contained therein are ignored. Should the Torah fall from the hand ol the worshipper who holds it during the service, all who are present must fast. But, we declare no fast days when the lawtaught by the Torah are trampled under foot. And we call the ancients Idol-worshippers, S OME so-called "Christians" will reverence the cross, will worship the Saviour, and yet will go about their daily duties hating some of then neighbors and persecuting them. They will recite the Lord's Prayer, saying, ". And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors But, do they? What is that if not vain and idle-worship? T HERE is nothing wrong with religious teachings. The trouble lies within those who refuse to be taught. We have had inspired religious leaders. But, there have been no followers, or, at best, very few. Zealots of all faitlis have devoted their energies to destroying the unbelievers."
