Volcano Erupt? Makes Decision !AouncementS,
At a time and a period such as
we Jews are undergoing at the
present time, it would ordinarily
appear that we Jews would live in
harmony with one another and so
present a united front to the rest
of the world. Particularly should
this be true of our spiritual leaders,
It isn't often that a layman finds
it necessary for the preservation of
our own honor and self respect to
chide the Rabbis. However, when
-uch an occasion should arise, we
would deem the layman who was
afraid to face the Issue, a cow-
ard, unless he were man enough
to frankly express himself and warn
the Rabbis of an Impending danger.
It is good Jewish law. and it ap-
plies perhaps even more to the
Rabbi than the layman, that one
cannot be punished unless he first
was warned of an impending wrong
Those of us who know what is
going on locally, leel that we are
sitting on top of a volcano that Ifl
about to erupt. Were this eruption
merely to hurt a few individuals
we would not care but when
this may affect the entire Jewish
community and react to its detri-
ment, we feel that we should say
to all the Rabbis, impartially and
without fear Think and think
well before you proceed .
It Is high time that grabbing of
Bar Mitzvas from one synagogue to
another be stopped. It is high time
that personal animosities and am-
bitions be put aside for the common
good. It is high time that even
where money is involved, amenities,
ethics, and above all the Shulchan
Aruch be thought of.
We believe a word to the wise Is
, sufficient. We have an abiding
I faith In the integrity of our local
Rabbinate to appeal to them at
thus time to do the right and proper
, thing for the benefit of all. Bury
' your own personal likes and dis-
likes for the common good. Be
real and true leaders in Israel.
Because of certain charges
gainst them. Merlin's Kosher
Market on Miami Beach re-
quested and were accorded a
hearing before a sub-committee
of the Miami Beach "Vaad
Hakashruth" on Friday morn-
ing February 16th. At this hear-
ing a number of witnesses were
called and interrogated. Last
Wednesday announcement was
made by the committee consist-
ing of Messrs. I.abovitz. Bren-
ner and Whiteman, that after
a thorough consideration of all
the testimony, insufficient evi-
dence to be believed had been
produced and they found the
charges unproved. They recom-
mended that to insure strict
observance of the kosher re-
quirements. Merlin 1m- accord-
ed supervision by the Kashrus
committee and a steady Mash-
giach be employed at the Mer-
lin Kosher Market. Merlin im-
mediately agreed to pay for
such supervision and agreed to
accept such supervisor as would
be named by the committee.

nected with the Beth Jacob

compliance with all require-
ments of the Jewish laws.

What a warning! We often con-

Indeed, little and large are only

The unprecedented expansion in
existing industrial undertakings and
the launching of new industries in
I Palestine brought about by the in-
flux of middle-class settlers from
various countries in Europe, par-
ticularly from Germany, are in
large measure responsible for Pales-
tine's ability to absorb thousands of
refugees fleeing the anti-Semitic
persecutions of the Hitler regime,
it was disclosed in a report by Is-
rael B. Brodie, Presdent of the
Amercan Economic Committee for
Palestine, on the Committee's ac-
tivities during the last quarter of
1933. The Committee, acting on its
own behalf and that of the Jewish
Agency and the principal economic
organizations ol Palestine, is the
central authority for the economic
guidance of middle-class immi-
grants and prospective settlers. It
maintains headquarters at 522 5th
Avenue, New York, and a field eco-
nomic bureau at Tel-Aviv, Pales-
"The problem of economic absorp-
tion of increasing numbers of refu-
gees seeking to rehabilitate them-
selves in Palestine". Mr. Brodie
stated, "is happily being solved in
large measure by the unprecedent-
ed expansion taking place in exist-
ing Palestine enterprises and by
the launching of new industrial
undertakings. This economic ex-
pansion is being brought about by
those of the refugees who possess
both adequate capital resources and
industrial experience and training.
By means of its comprehensive sur-
veys of various specific phases of
industry. commerce, agriculture
and finance .the Tel-Aviv Bureau
of our Committee is equipped
promptly to furnish the informa-
tion required by the immigrants.
Among the numerous new indus-
tries launched by these middle-
class immigrants with the aid of
our Committee are factories for the
manufacture of wooden houses,
orange boxes, refrigerators, wire
and wire products, chemical pro-
ducts, wood products, yeast and
"The importance and size of this
so-called "capitalist" immigration
into Palestine." Mr. Brodie said,
"may be judged from the following
figures covering the last quarter of
1933. During these three months the
Palestine Bureau of the Committee
afforded economic guidance to 958
capitalists' possessing aggregate
liquid resources of upwards of 1.-
300.000. or approximately $6,500,000.
for investment in Palestine agricul-
ture, industry and commerce. These
immigrants represented 52 coun-
tries. German refugees accounted
for 74 per cent of the total."
