MACIITEI Founder nntl Dfr6CtOf| R&dfo Synnirf America SUNDAY MORNINGS WTOD, MIAMI, FLORIDA Vol. IV. SUNDAY, OCTOBER 28, 193J No IG would accept Israel's original commission to be the embodied nd teachers of God's law. Imagine what a thrill would go through civilization if the Jews, with their genius for propaganda, were to undertake to rally the world to Mt. Sinai." We do not lack a spiritual religion. What we have great need for is a rebirth of spirit, a new heart, eal and enthusiasm, in snortspirituality In man. Spiritual Religion Versus Spiritual Man Scripture Reading, Psalm I.I, Verses 12-17. Inclusive. It is difficult properly to define the term "spiritually."' We speak of things as being "spiritual" and r.re often vague and ambiguous in our understanding of the word. It may not convey to m< the same meaning and intent that it does to you. But, for the present, Jet us assume that we are agreed on a meaning and usage for the word. A still greater problem confronts us. Host people associate spirituality with religion. It is sufficient for them that they are members of a church whose teachings are elevating, inspiring and spiritual. They feel their responsibility ending there. Do they not subscribe to the tenets of that faith? What more can one expect of them? Among Jews we have a similar!} minded class. Judaism, to them. is the most spiritual, the noblest of all religions. Its teachings are most ethical. Because Judaism is what it is, and because they arc .lews by confession of faith, it follows, in their reasoning, that they are the noblest of God's children. This is one syllogism that ; s not logical. Judaism may be spiritual, but it does not follow that the average Jew is spiritual. And, to us. it is not the spiritual religion that makes life what it is. but, the spiritual man. The inspired men in Israel, the Sages, the Psalmists, the Liturgists, the Prophets, early realized that it is man who becomes a burden to the law, not the law a burden to man, so they left the religion undisturbed and set to work upon map. The Psalmist, in our scripture reading today, did not plead for new commandments, but he prayed for a new heart and a new spin' to perceive the wonders of the old ones. We must havi a less elevated opinion of ourselves. We should not be blind to our own inferiority. Instead of blaming religion, the Jew reproaches himself. It is not that which conies from the Torah which defiles. It is the things which proceed out of man, his mental attitude during the performance of the Divine commandments, his purpose :n fulfilling them, which may leave a defiling effect even on things heavenly and pure. The rabbis have cited many instances of ritualistic observances which missed the point and intent of the law. The Jewish mystics have gone furthei and have stated that "Torah (or religion) performed without lov and awe never takes its flight into the regions above." A community forming a Kingdom of Priests, as does Israel, must have the whole world for its parisn. And a priest is not the minister of a spiritual religion, but a spiritual man. As Jews we must < xemplify spirituality in our very lives. We have been secluded by our law and excluded by the world that we may best serve as the Kingdom of Priests. We should be with the people, but not of them. We have, j in a great measure, converted the world, but must not allow the world to convert us. We must revive the spirit and zeal and en. thusiasm of the Jew, of the Prophet As mediocrities the World has no need for us. The fervor of Judaism, the renewed spirit and heart in man, does not permit of "free love" in religion. Universality must mean to us what it meant to the Prophets and their Jewish successors —that the whole world should become Jews, not that Judaism should fade out into the world. Isaiah and Micah were imbued with spirit; uality when they said, "And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord's hous<2 shall be established in the top ii : the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people -hall go and -ay. Come ye, let US go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob: and He will teach us His ways, and we will walk in His paths; for out of Zion shall go forth the law, anil the wind of the Ixnd from Jerusalem." The Jewish standard for men cl spirit has never been "men of affairs," "great organizers," "finished orators," "suave diplomats" or "statesmen." When, as Jews, v. get enthusiastic about our great, our Rabbis, our Tsaddikim, our Righteous men, we describe them as ".-acred unto God," "holy and pure," "contrite of spirit." It is the spiritual man that thrills us. Spirituality in man cannot be a passave state. Religious enthusiasm and zeal, if they are to be effective, will have to be brought to the boiling point. It is only that zeal which will consume all worldlines-, which will suffer no rival that can be of any use. We appear to have become deficient in enthusiasm. We boast of our common si take pains to avoid anything which mik'ht be suspected of eccentricity or even idealism; we have a morbid craving for the applause of the majority, and are desirous to lose ourselves in the majority. Our deification of the balance-sheet and the cold, stiff businesslike spirit in which our Jewish institutions are conducted are evidence of a lack of the zeal and enthusiasm which must inspire the spiritual man. In a recent International Sunday School Lesson, a Christian wrote the following: "If ever a nation had its own mission, that nation was the Jews. They were the chosen people. Out of all the myriads of the earth, they were selected, and Providentially trained, to exemplify God's purpose in a national life. They were given a set of laws of singular loftiness and beneficence ; nd universality and permanence. The highest law making skill of the advanced civilization to the F.a t did not approach the'm. Ages before the Occielent began to experiment with democracy, and with human rights, these were clearly set forth in the Mosaic law." This same writer continues to bemoan the fact that the Jews have neglected their mission. He asks, "What is the way out for the Jew?" and continues to give his answer and solution of the eternal "Jewish question" in these words: "Perhaps it is to revive and accept his original mission. The Jews' Divine destiny was not to be the world's merchants or bankers, but the world's religious leaders. Suppose this virile people were to return to first principles? Surely it would solve the anti-Semitic problem if all Jews everywhere STATEMENT BY I. |. GORDEEFF Representative of Torgsin In I. S. A. It has come to my notice that several organizations are circulating rumors that Torgsin is discontinuing its operations in the Soviet Union. On the basis of this idea they suggest to Amer. who have been Bending money to relatives or frienels in the U. S. S.

Y. M. H. A. to
Sponsor Dance
The third annual dance of the
Young Men's Hebrew Association
will be held next Thursday eve-
ning, November 8th, at the Miami
Beach Golf and Country Club, be-
ginning at 9 o'clock. One of the
finest orchestras in the local area
will provide dance music and en-
tertainers from local night clubs
will be presented by Sol Gold-
strom and Bert L. Riesner, in
charge of the entertainment.
Final plans for this affair,
which is the culmination of more
than eight weeks' strenuous wo.k
on the part of the committee and
the officers of the organizations
were announced at the meeting of
the Y. If. II. A. held last Wednes-
day night when reports of the
dance were presented. The pro-
ceeds of the affair will be used
towards the building fund of the
organization, which was started
last year. The need of a building
to house the activities of the or-
ganization anil to provide a home
for the young Jewish men and
women of Greater Miami has been
recognized by some of the leading
communal workers of the city and
they are actively aiding to make
this dance a SUCC6SS.

We Need Courageous Prophets
(The Jewish Advocate, Boston, Mass.)
Many who have great prophetic insight have been fail-
ures because the world was not ready to grasp their view-
point, and yet their great ideas have not died out. as has
been proven time and time again. Their failure is due to
the fact that the world has not been ready for them at the
time they were first promulgated. The modern prophets are
the philosophers, scientists, educators, business men and
journalists.
Those who are true to these sacred callings in life, like
the prophets of old. have visions of the future. They are
always ready with innovations that will have a beneficial
influence upon civilization. Had it not been for the un-
daunted efforts of our great scientists and explorers man-
kind would not enjoy the many blessings that it does today,
yet these very men and women who have been instrumental
in securing these great blessings were often the victims of
the most terrible cruelties and persecutions.
We must revere these great leaders in education, poli-
tics, economics and journalism, who. like the prophets of
old. dared to speak out without fear those ideas which they
believed to be justifiable, regardless of the results they
would bring to themselves.
There are numerous innovations in the business world
that were met with bitter resentment when first they were
made. The reduction of the hours of labor at first was re-
garded as very harmful and those advancing it were regarded
With much disfavor, but now thoughts along this line are
different, thanks to those of broad and fearless vision. We
need modern prophets now. as in the days gone by.

No IG
would accept Israel's original commission to be the embodied nd
teachers of God's law. Imagine what a thrill would go through civ-
ilization if the Jews, with their genius for propaganda, were to un-
dertake to rally the world to Mt. Sinai."
We do not lack a spiritual religion. What we have great need
for is a rebirth of spirit, a new heart, eal and enthusiasm, in snort-
spirituality In man.______________________
Spiritual Religion Versus Spiritual Man
Scripture Reading, Psalm I.I, Verses 12-17. Inclusive.
It is difficult properly to define the term "spiritually."' We speak
of things as being "spiritual" and r.re often vague and ambiguous in
our understanding of the word. It may not convey to m< the same
meaning and intent that it does to you. But, for the present, Jet us
assume that we are agreed on a meaning and usage for the word. A
still greater problem confronts us. Host people associate spirituality
with religion. It is sufficient for them that they are members of a
church whose teachings are elevating, inspiring and spiritual. They
feel their responsibility ending there. Do they not subscribe to the
tenets of that faith? What more can one expect of them?
Among Jews we have a similar!} minded class. Judaism, to them.
is the most spiritual, the noblest of all religions. Its teachings are
most ethical. Because Judaism is what it is, and because they arc
.lews by confession of faith, it follows, in their reasoning, that they
are the noblest of God's children. This is one syllogism that ;s not
logical. Judaism may be spiritual, but it does not follow that the
average Jew is spiritual. And, to us. it is not the spiritual religion
that makes life what it is. but, the spiritual man.
The inspired men in Israel, the Sages, the Psalmists, the Liturgists,
the Prophets, early realized that it is man who becomes a burden to
the law, not the law a burden to man, so they left the religion undis-
turbed and set to work upon map. The Psalmist, in our scripture
reading today, did not plead for new commandments, but he prayed
for a new heart and a new spin' to perceive the wonders of the old
ones. We must havi a less elevated opinion of ourselves. We should
not be blind to our own inferiority. Instead of blaming religion, the
Jew reproaches himself. It is not that which conies from the Torah
which defiles. It is the things which proceed out of man, his mental
attitude during the performance of the Divine commandments, his
purpose :n fulfilling them, which may leave a defiling effect even on
things heavenly and pure. The rabbis have cited many instances of
ritualistic observances which missed the point and intent of the law.
The Jewish mystics have gone furthei and have stated that "Torah
(or religion) performed without lov and awe never takes its flight
into the regions above."
A community forming a Kingdom of Priests, as does Israel, must
have the whole world for its parisn. And a priest is not the minister
of a spiritual religion, but a spiritual man. As Jews we must < xem-
plify spirituality in our very lives. We have been secluded by our
law and excluded by the world that we may best serve as the Kingdom
of Priests. We should be with the people, but not of them. We have, j
in a great measure, converted the world, but must not allow the '
world to convert us. We must revive the spirit and zeal and en- .
thusiasm of the Jew, of the Prophet As mediocrities the World has
no need for us. The fervor of Judaism, the renewed spirit and heart
in man, does not permit of "free love" in religion. Universality must
mean to us what it meant to the Prophets and their Jewish successors
that the whole world should become Jews, not that Judaism should
fade out into the world. Isaiah and Micah were imbued with spirit- ;
uality when they said, "And it shall come to pass in the last days, that
the mountain of the Lord's hous<2 shall be established in the top ii :
the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations
shall flow unto it. And many people -hall go and -ay. Come ye, let US
go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob:
and He will teach us His ways, and we will walk in His paths; for
out of Zion shall go forth the law, anil the wind of the Ixnd from
Jerusalem."
The Jewish standard for men cl spirit has never been "men of
affairs," "great organizers," "finished orators," "suave diplomats" or
"statesmen." When, as Jews, v. get enthusiastic about our great,
our Rabbis, our Tsaddikim, our Righteous men, we describe them as
".-acred unto God," "holy and pure," "contrite of spirit." It is the
spiritual man that thrills us.
Spirituality in man cannot be a passave state. Religious enthu-
siasm and zeal, if they are to be effective, will have to be brought
to the boiling point. It is only that zeal which will consume all world-
lines-, which will suffer no rival that can be of any use. We appear to
have become deficient in enthusiasm. We boast of our common si
take pains to avoid anything which mik'ht be suspected of eccentricity
or even idealism; we have a morbid craving for the applause of the
majority, and are desirous to lose ourselves in the majority. Our
deification of the balance-sheet and the cold, stiff businesslike spirit in
which our Jewish institutions are conducted are evidence of a lack of
the zeal and enthusiasm which must inspire the spiritual man.
In a recent International Sunday School Lesson, a Christian wrote
the following: "If ever a nation had its own mission, that nation was
the Jews. They were the chosen people. Out of all the myriads of
the earth, they were selected, and Providentially trained, to exemplify
God's purpose in a national life. They were given a set of laws of
singular loftiness and beneficence ; nd universality and permanence.
The highest law making skill of the advanced civilization to the F.a t
did not approach the'm. Ages before the Occielent began to experiment
with democracy, and with human rights, these were clearly set forth
in the Mosaic law." This same writer continues to bemoan the fact
that the Jews have neglected their mission. He asks, "What is the
way out for the Jew?" and continues to give his answer and solution
of the eternal "Jewish question" in these words: "Perhaps it is to re-
vive and accept his original mission. The Jews' Divine destiny was not
to be the world's merchants or bankers, but the world's religious
leaders. Suppose this virile people were to return to first principles?
Surely it would solve the anti-Semitic problem if all Jews everywhere

Some Reasons Why You Should Vote
Against Adoption of the Pro-
posed Homestead Tax Exemption
Amendment on November 6th,
1. THE BOND TAX REMAINS. The proposed amendment
does not mean what it says. There can be no exemption of taxes
for existing bonds. It means only removing; taxes to run state,
tounties and cities. Bonds cannot be repudiated by legislation
or constitutional amendment. There would be no exemption
from assessments for special benefits.
2. WHO WILL PAY THE TAXES LOST? The loss thru
"exemption" is estimated at from $12,000,000 to $15,000,000.
Economy in government cannot take care of this loss. In most
cases governmental expenses are now down to bed-rock; some
below. To make good the loss, an 8'i to 10' '< sales tax, plus an
increase in taxes on other property will be required.
3. WILL THE HOME OWNER GAIN BY "EXEMPTION?"
Bond taxes average about one-half of present taxes. To your
present taxes add an 8' < or 10'' sales tax on everything you
buy; deduct the one-half of the tax saved; the result will show
you a heavy loser.
4. THE RENTER WILL BE HARDEST HIT. If the land-
lord's taxes are increased, he will raise the rent. The renter now
pays the taxes indirectly; because his money is used by the land-
lord for such payment. The renter will not only pay the land-
lord's tax increase, but will have to pay a big sales tax on every-
thing he buys.
5. "EXEMPTION- A BLOW AT THE SCHOOLS. The
estimated loss of revenue to run the schools is $2,944,000, Un-
less fully made up, this would mean an average five-months school
year. This would deprive Florida children of their birthright
to a decent school education. The school system now badly
needs $2,500,000 more than it is actually receiving. A vote for
exemption" is a vote against your children!
0. THE WORKINGMAN DESPOILED. No wage-earner
can afford to pay %ft or 10'. of his income for sales taxes. A
heavy sales tax will drive business from Florida, check popula-
tion influx, and stop building. It would create more unemploy-
ment and lower wages.
7. THE "BAIT" TO BUY BECOMES A DELUSION. The
amendment would not stimulate home-owning or building. Peo-
ple are attracted to Florida by its climate, not to dodge payment
of a few dollars In taxes. Winter residents would not build OI
buy homes, because of the discrimination against them in the
Way of higher taxes; they could not claim the partial exemption.
8. DESTROYING THE TOURIST BUSINESS. Even
small sales lax Is an irritating nuisance to the tourist. A larger
-ales tax would drive them away; a visitor has an instinctive re-
sentment against being "gypped" for taxes in a place he is
merely visiting. The nation-wide notoriety which a high sales
tax would bring Florida would destroy our chief industry. Tour-
BtS would pay sales taxes only for the short period they are here.
Local residents would have to pay the year round.
9. INCREASING TAXES ON PERSONAL PROPERTY
ANT) OCCUPATIONS. "Exemption" advocates say such taxes
should be increased. This would mean higher taxes on house-
hold furniture, farmers' produce, live stock and farm equipment;
merchants' stocks, etc. This is the most difficult tax to collect,
and the most unsatisfactory in results.
10. FARMERS AND GROWERS. The sales tax on the
citrus and vegetable growers would place them at further dis-
advantage with competitors elsewhere.
11. THE SALES TAX INHERENTLY VICIOUS. Dr. Ed-
win R. A. Seligman of Columbia University, foremost living ex-
port on taxation, in a letter elated Oct. 19, 19<84, states: "The
program of homestead exemption, together with the 7-cent gaso-
line tax and the inevitable high sales tax, is bound to react upon
Florida's prosperity, and will certainly not make the state a
haven of resort. The program is most ill considered, and, in my
opinion, dangerous. The present program in Florida is to be
deprecated from EVERY POINT OF VIEW."
12. A NEW ROBBERY A LA GAS TAX. The legislature
is controlled by representatives of small counties. Their votes
passed the 1981 gasoline tax distribution law, under which some
small counties get back from 100' I to 40098 of such taxes paid
in by them, while the eight largest counties get back only 13' <
of their payments. West Florida advocates of "exemption" are
assuring Voters the same unholy robbery will be committed by
their legislature in redistributing a sale's tax; the bond racketeers
manipulated the gas tax scheme, and are backing and financing
the "exemption" campaign to force the sales tax.
13. DESTRUCTION OF DEBT-ADJUSTMENT PLANS.
Adoption of "exemption" would destroy all bond-refunding plans
in Florida; bondholders will not take settlements of defaulted
bonds on the basis of releasing their present tax security on
homesteads. Any bonds issued after adoption would carry no
taxes against present or future homes as security. And the
lessened and uncertain security afforded would close the market
against future borrowing, and thus stop our growth.
11. HOME OWNERS WILLING TO DO THEIR SHARE.
Owned homes are taxed on the same basis as rented homes. The
home of the renter is no less sacred than that of a property
owner; his family circle needs at least the same consideration
from the government. Homes are lost on mortgages, not taxes.
The HOLC loans to relieve distressed home-owners, by lending
to take up both mortgages and taxes. There is no sound reason
for exempting a home the owner of which does not need exemp-
tion. Home owners as a class should not be permitted, and Jo
not desire, to avoid paying their share of the costof government.
"15. THE AMENDMENT A DELIBERATE TRAP TO EN-
SNARE HOME OWNERS. In the debt-burdened communities
of South Florida, this amendment would make it feasible, for
the first time, to enforce the levy of enormous and confiscatory
bond taxes on homes, once they are free from taxes for local
government expenses; to buy such homes at tax sales, compell-
ing the repayment of the money on account of bonds; and to
effect actual confiscation of homes. This would give the bond
racketeers an effective weapon with which to coerce higher tax-
ation and to menace every home-owner in debt-defaulted com-
munities.
Every citizen who has his own interest and that of his com-
munity at heart should vote "NO" on the Homestead Exemption
Amendment (No. 2 on the ballot) on November Gth.
