Is There Need of a Jewish Press
Though so much has been Written on this subject in recent times, it is net amiss at this
time on the approach "I Rash Hashono to again repeat a lew -alien! facts. Though the daily press
in most Instances and particularly in Miami has been more than fair to the Jewish people, never-
theless, because el' the lack of space it has been unable to print news of particular Jewish inter-
est. Particularly is thi, true of the activities of local Jewish organisations when so much space is
asked in order to help along in their respective fields of endeavor. And again, in the dissemination
nf Jewish traditional lore. Jewish news of what i-, going on throughoul the world, it is the Jewish
press which must serve the purpose.. That the Jewish weekly press printed in the English language
lias nobly responded to every call made upon it throughout the country Is indisputably true. And
even iii Florida, it has been the proud accomplishment of the JEWISH FLORIDIAN that it prints
more Jewish news than any other publication.
The Jewish weekly cannot exist simply by printing news, though that is part of its duty.
It must look for support to its Jewish subscribers. Through its subscribers it must .all upon all
merchants of the territory to use its advertising columns. They must insist that those whom they
purchase from should show their appreciation by advertising in the columns of The Jewish Flo-
ridian. This is true of Jewish as will as non-Je*ish merchants.
Again we direct your attention to the fact that Rosh Hashono is fast approaching. The
traditional exchange of greetings and well wishes should be seen in our columns by your friends.
The cost is nominal. If you want to have your news, your organization's news, to be published, help
reciprocate in a concrete manner.

evident that a boycott of German
goods must inevitably have its gpe-

many and the smashing ol the ruth-
less Nazi steamroller. In my opin-
ion, the mechanics of such a boycott
should be immediately organized
and put into action not as any
means ol reprisal against a fren-
zied government, but as a natural
corollary of any American business
plan program which i.s designed to
stimulate the creation and distri-
bution of American goods exclu-
sively on one hand, and which con-
cretely expresses its opposition to
any national program which is pri -
datory, destructive eit humanrights

N. R. A. And The
Tlie greatest obstacle to the ob-
Iservance of the Sabbath on the part
lot the American Jews has always
I been economic pressure which
forced them to sacrifice the Sabbatli
I in order to earn a living. In an
[industrial scheme providing for the
Isix-day week in which Sunday was
llie universal day of rest, few Jews
|could be found who were ready to
endanger their livelihoods by Sab-
Ibath observance. For a great many
I years now Jews have been dream-
ing of a five-day week which would
relieve Sabbath-observing Jews of
an insuperable economic handicap.
It is no wonder then that Uie Jew-
lish Education Association hails the
National Industrial Recovery Act
with Joy because ii will make the
Ifive-day week a reality and thus
I restore the Jewish Sabbatli at a
greal spiritual lone among the
I Ji wi ii masses.
Sabbath observance itself is the
I'mosl important institution of the
[Jewish faith," but it lias a much
wider implication in that its ob-
Iservance oilers an unparalleled op-
portunity to revive the Jewish at-
mosphere in Jewish homes. Failure
i" keep the Sabbatli has deprived
I Jewish households of a spiritual
, of the utmost significance.
IThi N. R. a. will directly help to
bring back this necessary Jewish at-
wosphere and thus exert a mighty
I influence on Jewish life In Amer-
lions lie Chiefly with the leaders of
Jewry of today. If the synagogues
and other Jewish institutions of the
community conduct their activities
so that the Jewish young man and
woman may be attracted, educated
and steeped In then- environment.
then our leaders Ol today need have
no fear for the future. Let they, by
1 Kample, Inspire our youth to the
leadership they will expect. The
Not to be outdone by his distin-
guished colleagues In contemporary
English literature, (. k. chest en on
has just come forth with a denun-
ciation oi Hltlerism. But unlike
Shaw. Wells and Belloe, who struck
out vigorously agalnsl the Brown
menace, the veteran master ol par-
adox chose to trace the origin ol
Hltlerism to the Jew- and condemn
both Judaism and Protestantism
for the evils of Teutonism. In G.
K.'.n Weekly, his own periodical,
Chesterton writes that the "insane
idea of a Chosen Race, of a sacred
seed, that is. as the1 Kaiser said, the
salt Of the earth, of a people that
is God's favorite and is guided by
Him" came from the Jews, and that
the Hitlerites therefore owe their
theory of Nordic superiority to
them. "It is true." adds this strangl -
ly ardent Catholic, "that it all be-
gan with the power of the Jews:
which has now ended with the per-
secution of the Jews. People like
the Hitlerites never had any Ideas
of their own: they got this idea in-
directly through the Protestants.
that is primarily through the Prus-
sians; but they got it originally
from the Jews;." Examining this
statement in a Chcstertonian light,
we cannot but arrive at the conclu-
sion that G. K.'s attack upon Hit-
lerism is perhaps more deadly than
Belloc's or Shaw's, because it at-
tacks the Jew. What could be more
devastating to the Third Reich
than the charge that Hitler's grand
dream of a perfectly Aryan race
was llie lied from the most non-
Aryan of the non-Aryans, the
Jews. It is our fervent hope that
the Nazis will take Chesterton seri-
ously enough to realize that their
barbaric pursuit of Aryanlsm is an
ancient "Jewish" custom and out-
law it along With all other 'alien'
cultural influence. The Jewish

who are guilty of what amounts to
collusion with the enemy while
many dispassionate, and to a larger
de ree less interested. Gentile firms
have jumped into the breach and
as a matter of good business and
humane consideration, eliminated
the purchase and sale of German
goods. Those names must be rap-
idly organized, the companies ap-

be secured, announced in the press,

A special propaganda committee
should set to work immediately to
crestalize public opinion, certainly

have shown a healthy and coopera-

The machinery of this propaganda
committee should include number;
of public meetings with effective
speakers; newspaper and publica-

tion and radio talks by men whose
names are important enough to get
a valuable place on the programs.
Above all. there must be a fusion
of the ranks of the several organiza-
tions interested in this rescue work.
The men guilty of indulging in their
petty claims and differences must
swallow their pride or step out of

Scripture Reading, Deuteronomy, Chapter XXI. Verses 10-23, inclusive.
THE FOREGOING verses were part of the weekly portion of the Torah
read in the synagogues yesterday. These verses contain four dis-
tlnct pa and each paragraph deals with a different subject.
Yet. because of their juxtaposition, we know them to be related. The
Word of God in the Torah was not recorded in a haphazard order. What.
rn from these four paragraphs?
The : with the beautiful female captive of war
which the Uraeliti take! unl 1 himsell a The practice ;- dis-
couraged by the law which demands that the woman put on mourning
clothes, not allow her nails to grow long, shave her head, and other
make herself unattractive for a month. If after that time the Israelite
still her for a wife, he may have her. but. wisdom teaches that he
will tire of her. ..".... it shall be. if thou have no delight in her .
The Torah foresees the consequences.
The second group of verses discusses the case of a man with two ;
wives.pi imj belli able In those days.one wife beloved
the other hated. The first-born son. if he be the child of the despl
wife, must not be cheated of his birthright, in favor oi a younger son. a
child of the favorite wife.
The third paragraph deals with the laws pertaining to the stubborn
and rebellious son, whi 1st t> pul to death. And the fourth and la
group of verses .:. this hapter begins as follows ..."... And if a man
have committed a sin worthy of death, and he be to be put, to death.
and tffou hang him on a tree: ...... the Torah orders that he be
buried before nightfall.
I make no pretentious claims lor the Torah, but. I do find a great
lesson in sociologj at well as one in criminology in these verses of the
twenty-first chapter of Deuteronomy.
The les.- tear that if a man take a woman for a wife out of
passion Instead of love: II he marry a woman whose physical appear-
ance attracts him and arouses his desires, without his giving thought to
her station in life and her fitness, he will ultimately despise her. If he
have children by his wife, children born of passion and not of love, his
attitude towards these children will be a reflection of his hatred for
their mother. He will show favoritism and rouse jealousy between his
children. The next step follows as a matter of course.there will be a
stubborn and rebellious son. a child who obeys neither his father nor
mother, a son who will respect his parents not at all. This child, on the
testimony of his father and mother, will be ordered to be stoned, after
a trial by the judges.
But. you ask. why should a stubborn and rebellious and disobedient
boy be put to death? He is only a child and has committed no crime
meriting the extreme penalty. The Torah looks ahead and sees him
mowing into a highwayman and a murderer. ...".,. and if a man
have committed a sin worthy of death. ."
You have heard the parents of incorrigible children say: "I can"t
understand it. My wife and I >or. my husband and I> have tried to
him a good education and a nice upbringing, but. the child insists
in being bad." You have heard similar excuses offered by fathers and
mothers who were humiliated by reports of their children's conduct.
Always, the blame Is shifted ;o outride influences. environment, bad
companions, the loose standards of the community. Seldom do these
parents seek the cause within the home and its influences. Never are
they honest enough to accept the full responsibility. In mast cases, the
individual parent lacks the understanding of his or her share of the
guilt. Being unconscious of guilt they reiuse the blame.
I expect to be censured for my expression "home-made criminals."
But. I maintain that the stubborn and rebellious, the disobedient and
incorrigible child is a product of the home, Out.-ide influences take root
in a soil made fertile within the home, either through pre-natal influ-
ences or implanted a- the child -row- up. A child is meant to be a prod-
uct of love and not of passion; a child should be born into a home where
he is wanted and not as the result of an "accident." A child, born oi
love, should come into the world to live in a home where harmony pre-
vails, where father and mother love and respect one another, and where
no discordant note is present. Even before the young one is old enough
to judge for bin feelings his parents have for each other, the
happy or miserable atmc p that pervades the home influences him.

The Torah teaches a code of liie. Toda; pture readme, warns
us that a mismated couple, a marriage based on passion, a home where

womanhood without ufficient corrective measures, then, we need not be
surprised at the prevalence of crime. I do not refer to the crimes com-
mitted in a moment of rage or weakness. I have in mind, as Scripture
points out, the habitual criminal;not the person who goes berserk,
temporarily insane, but the menace to society whose very actions, re-
peatedly detrimental to the community, give evidence of a deep- ated
