CONGREGATION BETH JACOB
(Orthodox)
311 Washington Ave., Miami Beach
DAVIO I. ROSENBLOOM, Rabbi
we have
been told time and again by
our sages, is that ounce of pre-
caution which obviates the nc-
cessit) for pounds of cure. And
n is (his ounce of precaution
(hat we suggest to some of
our Jewish leaders in the mer-
cantile life of Greater Miami.
\\ i cannot help but recall ser-
mons of our splendid Rabbis of
the Greater Miami area,
where the dut) of the Jewish
merchant was placed on a hiirh
plane of ethical conception.
The quotations of the Talmud
where the merchant was en-
joined to be careful in the
I real meat of his customer, was
again and again emphasized.
We are particularly con-
cerned at this time with the
reported attitude of some of
our Jewish merchants, some
high in the commercial life of
the community, who in an at-
tempt to corral business, have
assumed an attitude of disa-
sociation with their fellow
.lews, and with everything that
may be termed Jewish. When
pressed for the reason for such
unfair and intolerant attitude
towards their fellow Jews, the
explanation was immediately
forthcoming that in that way
I hey hoped to Rain non-Jewish
business. Undoubtedly this is
an attitude more becoming to
the land of the Nazi, to the
anti-Semitism of Eastern Eu-
rope, than to free and liberal
thinking and acting America.
Thank Heaven, the United
States and particularly the
State of Florida, has for its
non-Jewish residents a class
of citizenry who will resent
such infamous attempts to
gain their patronage. The
Miamian will and does appre-
ciate clean dealing, honest
merchandising and courteous
service. He does not fall for
an appeal to racial antipathies.
The success of some of our
best stores in this area is clear
and conclusive proof of this
incontrovertible fact.
let us hope that our Jewish
anti-Jewish merchants
will take a little time for calm
reflection, and with the inher-
ent common sense that they
possess, realize that their mer-
cantile success depends not
upon disassociation with their

Kahlii Wise attacked the timid-
ity of Jews who failed to approve
the boycott and threw down the
gauntlet to .lews who have issued
the warning that the Jews of Pal-
estine will not support the pro-
jected world Jewish conference if
the present Geneva conference
judge adversely against their ne-
gotiations with the Nazi govern-
ment.
"For my part," declared Wise
"I cannot believe in the serious-
ness of such warning or threat."
He insisted that the boycott could
not be averted or halted "by Buper-
cautious bodies in London or New
York."
He said the Jewish masses were

He said he anticipated and feared
an offer which would prove a pal-

of disarming Jewish protests.

May we suggest, not in a spirit

Rabbi Jacob II. Kaplan of Tem-
ple Israel, is one of the IS rabbis
in the United States whose ser-
mons were chosen this year to
comprise the Hook of Holy Da]
Sermons, which is published an-
nually by the tract commission of
the Union of American Hebrew
Congregations.
Rabbi Kaplan's contribution is
; entitled "I Am a Jew." and Is in-
tended for the holiday of Rosh Ha-
shana Eve.
The publication is used in small
towns where there are no rabbis,
in institutions, and among uni-
versity groups of Jewish students.
Services are generally conducted
by laymen, and the sermons read.

"No Jews Wanted"
A tew week- ago Daniel Froh-
man, veteran theatrical producer,
was politely requested to leave a
Long Island country cluh because
: I a .lew Now I'l (.III London
comes the reporl that a roadhousc
near the British capital refused t)
serve Victor Rothschild of the in-
ternational hanker family, on the
ground- thai he is Jewish. Mr.
Rothschild, commenting on the in-
cident, said: "We live in a changed
age, i>ut this sounds rather like
Nazi Germany."
The amazement implied in Mr.
Roth-child'- comment is well justi-
fied. For many year- the name
of Rothschild ha- lien closely
hound up with British history, and
has i njoyed the esteem of English-
men, .leu- and non-Jews. Mr.
Rothschild himself married the
daughter of a prominent non Jew
i.-h familyalthough, in keeping
with the Rothschild tradition, the
young lady adopted the Jewish
faith before her marriage.
Such flagrant instance- of so-
cial discrimination against Jews
hardly redound to the credit of
their perpetrator-.

"A God of Vengeance, or Retribution?
Scripture Reading, Pulm XCVI, Verses 10-18, Inclusive.
One of the mo.sl frequently criticized expressions in Scripture is
the quality attributed to God, designating him a "God of Vengeance."
Scattered throughout the New Testament, as well as the Old, is the
oft-repeated phrase. "Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord.'' The critics
ire mild in their censure of Christian theology, for this phrase, because
they realize that Christianity fell heir to this expression, as it did to
Jther fundamentals of Judaism. The heavy artillery of the attack is,
therefore, directed at Jews and Judaism.
Because the Jew believes in a "God of Vengeance," the attackers
claim, he is naturally vengeful, vindictive and vicious. Like all gener-
alizations, the statement fails of hitting the mark of truth in the bull's-
eye. Only a student of Hebrew, knowing the original text, can appre-
ciate the difficulty of correctly translating he word nekamah. Ven-
geance correctly describes it if you can remove the stigma of venom
and vindictiveness that is implied. Retribution might he- a better word,
a milder termone shorn of the sharp and rctaliativo tone.
But, this "God of Vengeance" idea, far from being insulting to the
lew. is symbolic- and descriptive of the high standard of morality and
justice which Judaism teaches. Nekamah is a grammatical form of
the word hawkame. which means to erect, to Bet up. Nekamah is a
setting aright the wrong which has been dune. A God of vengeance is
one who corrects wrongs, who has established retributive laws, laws
which compel! the right to prevail over the wrong. "He shall judge
the world with righteousness"justice and righteousness are the foun-
dations of the world. Punishment is the natural consequence of one's
acts. So is reward. Punishment by a "Cod of Vengeance" is not vin-
dictive, but redemptive. All high-souled justice, the justice that i.-
framed on the divine pattern, is nothing but mercy. Only injustice
would let the wicked man live undisturbed in his wickedness, without
that chance of moral recovery which lies in expiation, or without those
deferring effects which the spectacle of the sinner's chastisement
exerts upon cithers. Punishment, far from being an evil, supremely
goodthe sign of a loving C<1 anxious for the happiness of His human
children.
An oft-repeated law, in the- Old Testament, in the Torah, en,
man to "eradicate the evil from your midst." There 1- no evil act, ii"
base cleed, which may go unpunished, for the evil undermines the foun-
dations of society, of the land, of the people. This "vengeance" of which
the prophets spoke is not the stony-hearted brand, but, rath' r, a I
sity to replace, into its proper order, the world system based on justice
and righteousness; made necessary by the destructive acts of the
Wicked. This type of vengeance is not born of vindictivene-s. is not a
passionate outburst, but rather the child of righteousness and justice.
Such absolute justice- i.- the fundamental f Jewish ethical '.caching-, of
Jewish morality.
Judaism places the greatest value upon man. created in the image
Of the divine. Judaism demands otic law for all of God's children; for
the stranger as well as the native. The prophets wen the champions
of the downtrodden and the exploited, the under-privileged and the
oppressed. They berated the mighty in office for their unjust acts, and
they denounced the laxity in moral conduct among the masses. This
high sense of morality and justice, this spirit of the- "God of Ven-
geance," if you will, have we inherited from our ancestry. It is that
which will not permit us to be- calm in the face of injustice, in the
presence of persecution, and which prompts US to fling back into the-
fare- of demagogues and despots their false pretenses and their hypo-
critical advance-.
And so it is, that the Jew has been accused of holding too firmly
to his ancient heritage. It cannot otherwise. It is in our blood.
\Ve have paid dearly for our stubbornness. But. as long as there is
need for Jew-, as long as God ordains that there be someone to make
a martyr of himself in the cause of Justin and righteousness, there
will be Jews. Our example of self-sacrifice has not been without it-
reward. A reward not so great to u- a- it has been in it- effect to
irouse the nations among whom we live, among the- brave and true
Christian spirit-, to a better understanding of this people whose G d,
the "God of Vengeance," the God of Retribution, is also their G |,
God who judges the world with righteousness; not with might, not with
tyranny, not through despotism, but with justice and righteousness.
Where i- ancient Egypt, Babylon, Greece, Komi-, spam'.' Where
are the oppressors of the past? They have felt the hand of the God
of Vengeance. Not vengeance- for having oppressed the Chosen People.
God does not champion the cause of "tie people any more than that of
another. It was Retribution at work. The- evils had to be eradicated,
'he evils of injustice and unrighteousness. Had these nation- been
permitted to go unscathed, the human race would have returned to
barbarism, would have deteriorated to a race of ruthless killers, plun-
d-.-rers, and the Divine Image would have been removed from the face
of the earth. The very pillars of civilization would have been under
mined.
A God of Vengeance-! I- it destructive vengeance to tear down
the despotic regime? The world ha- erected many structures which
have contributed to its moral ruin. Anyone- who razes these-, or one of
them is a noble builder, a constructive builder, because- by his act he
reduces the sum total of that which lead.- to ruin. That which is not
founded on justice, in principle and in practice, reduces the world to
chaos; it destroys the universal harmony, which, according to Jewish
U-achings, is based on Absolute Goodness on Justice, Truth and Char-
ity. In order to re-establish the moral world-order it is absolutely es-
sential that these evils be removed. That is your "Cod of Vengeance,"
vour "El Nekamah." the God of setting up. of righting the wrongs. 01"
Retribution, which, in the original Latin, means to assign back, to
restore to its rightful place, its proper position.
The Jew owes his survival to his tenacity in holding onto the spirit
Of Truth, to the moral teachings of justice and righteousness for all
men. No other heritage is lasting. No physical object to which he
my have- attach,-,! himself could have sustained him. Ancient Egypt
prayed for Wealth. Its pray,-, was granted. Us pyramids, its gods,
it, world traffic bear mute- evidence to its position in the counc.l ot
nations f its day. Gree prayed for Beauty and saw its prayer an-
swered. Rome asked for PoWe. and the- world was chained captive
to its chariot.
"O Godhead, give me Truth." the Hebrew cried.
His prayer was granted; he became the slave
HI the Idea, a pilgrim far and wide.
Cursed, hated, spurned, and scourged with none to save.
The Pharaohs kn,^ him, and when Greece beheld.
His wisdom w ire the hoary crown of eld.
Beauty he hath forsworn, and wealth and power
Seek him today, and find in every land,
No fire consumes him, neither floods devour;
Immortal through the lamp within his hand.

present period of peril. He de-
plored "the almost total absence
of unity in world Jewry" and said
that day-by-day tinkering had re-
placed the long view of Jewish
statesmanship.
"If the Jews wish to remain a
people." he said, "they must awake
and arise, taking counsel to stall I
together against their foes."
The conference steering commit-
tee began a private discussion of
the boycott on Germany and its
deliberations will be continued to-
morrow. A spokesman said the
trend was for the continuance of
the boycott, but that the committee
had to study ways and means to
make it effective. He said, how-
ever, that non-Jews had joined in
the boycott in many case.-.
Rabbi Goldberg of New York,
on behalf of himself and Rabbi
Wise, said he was completely ig-
norant of any rumors that a Jew-
ish super-government was under
discussion.

"Jewish dominance in Communist
affair- in America is a fiction de-
liberately fomented by professional
Jew-baiters who cloak themselves
behind respectable Americans.
These often well-meaning fellow
citizens fail to see that the bogey
of Communism has been pulled out
of the skeleton closet in order to
find justification for attacking
the Jews, thereby diverting atten-
tion from misdeeds resented by
public opinion."
Therefore, let them ally them-
selves with groups which foster

The quotations of the Talmud where the merchant was enjoined to be careful in the I real meat of his customer, was again and again emphasized. We are particularly concerned at this time with the reported attitude of some of our Jewish merchants, some high in the commercial life of the community, who in an attempt to corral business, have assumed an attitude of disasociation with their fellow .lews, and with everything that may be termed Jewish. When pressed for the reason for such unfair and intolerant attitude towards their fellow Jews, the explanation was immediately forthcoming that in that way I hey hoped to Rain non-Jewish business. Undoubtedly this is an attitude more becoming to the land of the Nazi, to the anti-Semitism of Eastern Europe, than to free and liberal thinking and acting America. Thank Heaven, the United States and particularly the State of Florida, has for its non-Jewish residents a class of citizenry who will resent such infamous attempts to gain their patronage. The Miamian will and does appreciate clean dealing, honest merchandising and courteous service. He does not fall for an appeal to racial antipathies. The success of some of our best stores in this area is clear and conclusive proof of this incontrovertible fact. let us hope that our Jewish anti-Jewish merchants will take a little time for calm reflection, and with the inherent common sense that they possess, realize that their mercantile success depends not upon disassociation with their Saturday morning Finest J.

Radio Synagott of America SUNDAY MORNINGS WIOD, MIAMI, FLORIDA Vol. IV. SUNDAY, AUGUST 1. 1984 No. 36 W "A God of Vengeance, or Retribution? Scripture Reading, Pulm XCVI, Verses 10-18, Inclusive. One of the mo.sl frequently criticized expressions in Scripture is the quality attributed to God, designating him a "God of Vengeance." Scattered throughout the New Testament, as well as the Old, is the oft-repeated phrase. "Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord.'' The critics ire mild in their censure of Christian theology, for this phrase, because they realize that Christianity fell heir to this expression, as it did to Jther fundamentals of Judaism. The heavy artillery of the attack is, therefore, directed at Jews and Judaism. Because the Jew believes in a "God of Vengeance," the attackers claim, he is naturally vengeful, vindictive and vicious. Like all generalizations, the statement fails of hitting the mark of truth in the bull'seye. Only a student of Hebrew, knowing the original text, can appreciate the difficulty of correctly translating he word nekamah. Vengeance correctly describes it if you can remove the stigma of venom and vindictive n ess that is implied. Retribution might hea better word, a milder term—one shorn of the sharp and rctaliativo tone. But, this "God of Vengeance" idea, far from being insulting to the lew. is symbolicand descriptive of the high standard of morality and justice which Judaism teaches. Nekamah is a grammatical form of the word hawkame. which means to erect, to Bet up. Nekamah is a setting aright the wrong which has been dune. A God of vengeance is one who corrects wrongs, who has established retributive laws, laws which compel! the right to prevail over the wrong. "He shall judge the world with righteousness"— justice and righteousness are the foundations of the world. Punishment is the natural consequence of one's acts. So is reward. Punishment by a "Cod of Vengeance" is not vindictive, but redemptive. All high-souled justice, the justice that i.framed on the divine pattern, is nothing but mercy. Only injustice would let the wicked man live undisturbed in his wickedness, without that chance of moral recovery which lies in expiation, or without those deferring effects which the spectacle of the sinner's chastisement exerts upon cithers. Punishment, far from being an evil, supremely good—the sign of a loving C<1 anxious for the happiness of His human children. An oft-repeated law, in theOld Testament, in the Torah, en, man to "eradicate the evil from your midst." There 1no evil act, ii" base cleed, which may go unpunished, for the evil undermines the foundations of society, of the land, of the people. This "vengeance" of which the prophets spoke is not the stony-hearted brand, but, rath' r, a I sity to replace, into its proper order, the world system based on justice and righteousness; made necessary by the destructive acts of the Wicked. This type of vengeance is not born of vindictivene-s. is not a passionate outburst, but rather the child of righteousness and justice. Such absolute justicei.the fundamental f Jewish ethical '.caching-, of Jewish morality. Judaism places the greatest value upon man. created in the image Of the divine. Judaism demands otic law for all of God's children; for the stranger as well as the native. The prophets wen the champions of the downtrodden and the exploited, the under-privileged and the oppressed. They berated the mighty in office for their unjust acts, and they denounced the laxity in moral conduct among the masses. This high sense of morality and justice, this spirit of the"God of Vengeance," if you will, have we inherited from our ancestry. It is that which will not permit us to becalm in the face of injustice, in the presence of persecution, and which prompts US to fling back into thefareof demagogues and despots their false pretenses and their hypocritical advance-. And so it is, that the Jew has been accused of holding too firmly to his ancient heritage. It cannot !• otherwise. It is in our blood. \Ve have paid dearly for our stubbornness. But. as long as there is need for Jew-, as long as God ordains that there be someone to make a martyr of himself in the cause of Justin and righteousness, there will be Jews. Our example of self-sacrifice has not been without itreward. A reward not so great to uait has been in iteffect to irouse the nations among whom we live, among thebrave and true Christian spirit-, to a better understanding of this people whose G d, the "God of Vengeance," the God of Retribution, is also their G |, God who judges the world with righteousness; not with might, not with tyranny, not through despotism, but with justice and righteousness. Where iancient Egypt, Babylon, Greece, Komi-, spam'.' Where are the oppressors of the past? They have felt the hand of the God of Vengeance. Not vengeancefor having oppressed the Chosen People. God does not champion the cause of "tie people any more than that of another. It was Retribution at work. Theevils had to be eradicated, 'he evils of injustice and unrighteousness. Had these nationbeen permitted to go unscathed, the human race would have returned to barbarism, would have deteriorated to a race of ruthless killers, plund-.-rers, and the Divine Image would have been removed from the face of the earth. The very pillars of civilization would have been under mined. A God of Vengeance-! Iit destructive vengeance to tear down the despotic regime? The world haerected many structures which have contributed to its moral ruin. Anyonewho razes these-, or one of them is a noble builder, a constructive builder, becauseby his act he reduces the sum total of that which lead.to ruin. That which is not founded on justice, in principle and in practice, reduces the world to chaos; it destroys the universal harmony, which, according to Jewish U-achings, is based on Absolute Goodness on Justice, Truth and Charity. In order to re-establish the moral world-order it is absolutely essential that these evils be removed. That is your "Cod of Vengeance," vour "El Nekamah." the God of setting up. of righting the wrongs. 01" Retribution, which, in the original Latin, means to assign back, to restore to its rightful place, its proper position.
