An Open Letter
An Interesting Commentary
on Conditions Facing the
Jewish Buying Public De-
siring Kosher Meats
To th. Editor of
IV Jewish Fluridian,
Miami. Fla.
Dear Sir:
I read with interest your ar-
licle. "Wonders Never Cease."
Bftau-t' of the fact thai I am
ISSJOUS In have everything made
hwwn, I am advising you of the
true condition of affairs regard-
ine the whole matter.
After some consultation with
Km. Friedman of Edgmer Rock-
ia>. N. Y., where I am also en-
tailed in the butcher business, I
came to Miami Reach in Octo-
ber to decide as to take over the
meat market at the Merlin Kosh-
er Market. After some discus-
sion wilh Mr. Merlin. I "cut
bark to New York and then re-
timed to Miami Reach about
November 1st. I rented the
nuai market from Mrs. Fried-
man, who had rented the section
fur poultry and meals from Mr.
Merlin, and paid a deposit of
one hundred dollars on account
of the total of six hundred and
Iwenty-five dollars rent for the
Kason. It mil before I closed
he deal thai Mr. Merlin, on my
fir-t visit, told me that it was
possible to make any money
selling kosher meals; that he
could not net along doing that
mil that he had continually sold
ifah meats to I he public and
ka link me around to Armour & Co.,
ii Swift's and to other meal
Muses, and introduced me and
purchased Ireifah meats, includ-
ing fnrequartcrs of beef, lamb.
I I, Iher, etc. 1 also purchased
during my stay here, veal and
lamb from the New York Butch-
tr- Co. of New York, which was
reifah. Mr. Merlin and Mrs.
Friedman knew of the whole
Utter, and knew what I was
Wiling to the Jewish public.
Mr Merlin even bought cold
Morage fowl for his customers
anil sent it to them as kosher.
When the time came to have the
lease signed for the place, Mr.
Merlin took me to his lawyer,
and I told them and Mrs. Fried-
man's lawyer that I was selling
'reifah, that Merlin advised me
to and was doing the same, and
that I would not sign a lease
Containing any condition that it
must be kosher. We talked the
matter over and I instructed my
lawyer to draw a lease and to
l*a>e the word kosher out. Mrs.
Friedman refused to sign such
a lease, though she said so far
as -he was concerned she didn't
Me what I sold, hut she wanted
the lease to read kosher if any
Question came up. Mr. Merlin
'hen told me if she wouldn't
gn such a lease he would. Alter
a lot of talk we couldn't get to-
tether and I got out. When I
W out there was some treifah
es of beefi some veal and
s"">e lamb in the ice box and

Shall We Not
Listen?
Rabbis to Speak
At Symposium
Rabbi Julius Washer of the
Miami Jewish Orthodox Congrega-
tion, Rabbi Jacob M. Kaplan of
Temple Israel and Rabbi Max Sha-
piro of Beth David Congregation
will be heard in an exposition of:
the essential beliefs and views of
their respective wings of Jewry
at the first of a series of cultural
meetings to be sponsored by the
local Rabbis during the winter sea-
son. This first symposium will be
held at the Temple Israel Tuesday
evening. December 18th, and the
public is urged to attend. The next
i vent will be a discussion of "/.ion-
ism and the Jewish Problem" in
which Rabbi David I. lioscnbloom,
Rabbi S. M. Machtei and another
speaker will be beard at Beth Ja-
cob Congregation, Miami Beacll,
during January.
How many of you remember
the story of "Rabbi and Priest"?
Do you remember the end of the
story where, after persecution
and pogroms, the two, a Rabbi
and a Priest, finally learn that
they are brothers. That while
young, the one who was the
priest had been torn from his
mother's side and raised out of
his faith.
This may happen, if you. too,
won't listen. Right here in
Miami, a little mile of humanity,
a little girl just a year old. of
Jewish parents, is awaiting a de-
dsion as to her final fate. Will
she remain a Jewess or will she
become one of another faith?
Not hers to decide, but your-'.
As fine a picture of a healthy,
beautiful childhood as one can
picture, and yet unclaimed.
The Juvenile Court will send
this baby for adoption some-
where, by the end of December.
We Jews do not hesitate to spend
money to bring a Jewish corpse
to burial in a Jewish cemetery.
Shall we now hesitate to bring
a Jewish child, living, to her
people?
We cannot believe that some-
where within the reach of these
words there lives not a man or
woman who will avail themselves
of this opportunity to brighten
Iheir home.
The Jewish Welfare Bureau
will be happy to help this good
cause along. Rhone them for
furl her informal ion.
and paid me a check on the First
National Rank for the amount,
which was St.'! and some cents.
1 am giving this statement lie-
cause I want people to know that
I was only doing in Merlin's
store what Mr. Merlin told me
he had always been doing, and
because 1 don't want to take
blame for anything more than t
should.
Very truly your,

The Feast of Lights
On tt he evening of December 1st the traditional orange*
[colored candles that fill the Chaniikah candelabra were
blessed in more homes this year than in many a decade. The
Maccabean festival, with its commemoration of the courage,
the heroism and the perseverence of the sons of ancient
I.Mattathias. has a quality of deep inspiration shared by few
| other day s in the Jewish calendar.
In our own day Antiochus Kpiphanes is more than an in-
dividual, he is an almost world-wide state of feeling, which
seeks to sent its bitterness and frustration upon the Jewish
people. ^_
Hemmed in on all sides by forces that are disquieting, if
not immediately destructive, Jews are turning again to those
source* of tradition and ceremony which have calmed and
enriched their ancestors through many generations.
The lighting of the Chanukah candles becomes at once a
symbol of solidarity with one's people and of the strength
that lies within the individual Jew.
Parents who, in a mistaken rationalism, once ignored
Ike esthetic richness of the ceremonies of the Feast of Lights,
illthis yearbring back to their homes for the enjoy-
eat of their children and for their own stimulation the
ritual practices of the .Maccabean festival.
This is but part of a far greater transformationoccur-
ring in Jewish lifein America as elesewherewhich is lorc-
K the recognition that our forbears knew that traditions
and customs were not the effects, but the causes ol survival.
Cumulatively Important
. Nazism. Fascism and anti-Semitism all came in for some
ty wallops during the past week, both in this country and
abroad. I p in Boston a jury from which Jews were deliber-
ately excluded found the Jew-baiting Industrial Defense AaV
Odation and its super-patriotic secretary, Fdward Hunter,
Wty of libeling the Artkino Guild.
. In Cambridge, Harvard University rejected a (.erman
scholarship offered by the pro-Nazi nephew ol Andrew_W.
Meon. Major John I'rout. an offcial of the New York City
government, resigned as "consul" of the American Concentra-
,,on. Inc., a new Fascist movement, because he found the

Man was created at the very last,
just before the angels. Why? So
that, when man should be too
proud, he may be told: "Why are
you so proud? You were created
last, even after the insects and the
flies;" but when man should be
humble and modest, he may be
told: "Why, you really ought to be
very proud, since you were created
even ahead of the angels.." (Tal-

Leaders and Misleaders"
Scripture Reading, Malachi, Chapter II, Verses 1-9, Inclusive.
Last night the first Chanukah candle was kindled. Young and
old will chant the appropriate prayers for eight daysprayers ex-
tolling the virtues, the heroism, the zeal of Mattathias, Judas Macca-
beus and his brothers, and the bravery of their followers. Jews every-
where will retell the story of that miraculous cruse of oil. It is to
these heroic zealots that we owe the perpetuation of the Faith of
Israel at a time when heathen Hellenistic influences battled at our
very doors and had already gained some entree at the point of the
Syrian sword. The victory of the Maccabees was an accomplishment
not to be minimized.
But, 1 am old-fashioned enough to want to look for the cause.
True it is that the victory was glorious. However, in the light of the
bloodshed, the suffering, the misery attendant upon any war, it be-
hooves us to try to avoid even "glorious" victories if that be possible.
I say that I am old-fashioned enough to believe that "an ounce of pre-
vention is worth a pound of cure." I may even place the value of
prevention at "tons of cure"and the war was only the cure the
remedy to rid the Jewish body of some affliction. If we knew just
how we became sick, di.-eased and in need of a medicine, weassuming
thai we are rational bringswould in the future avoid such exposure
to infection, contamination or contagion.
That there is a Known specific in medicine, a tried and proven
relief or cure for an ailment, and that the remedy is available and
within our reach, is no sound reason for one to cast caution to the
winds in preventative medicine. Though it is fine to be cured, it is
much finer not to have been sick. 1 know many men whose doctors
have forbidden them certain types of food. These men have, during
an earlier sickness, been given medicines which relieved them of the
pains insulting from a breach of the prescribed diet I have known
thesi nun deliberately to violate the diet because they had at hand an
immediate dose of the diug which gave them freedom from pain. What
these men failed to realize was that the drug deadens the pain, but
docs not protect the human system from the injurious effects of the
forbidden foods. The doctor's purpose in restricting the diet was to
afford the system relief from these irritants that natural healing
might take place unhampered by the indigestible types of food.
So it is with the story of Chanukah. It was very propitious that
the -Maccabees braved the armies of the Syrian Antiochus, but, could
the entire episode have been avoided? If we lay stress on the cause
or causes of the Syrian oppression and permit history to teach us, we
should be able to avoid similar recurrences with the consequential
bloodshed.
What led up to the Syrian prohibitions of Jewish observances by
Jews? By what authority did Antiochus inject himself into the life
of the Jewish people on their homeland? The answer is that instead
of leaders the Jews had misleaders. The high priest, Onias III, though
a good man, made the terrible mistake of calling in the Syrians '.o
settle a family dispute. The Syrian king, Antiochus, took this op-
portunity to usurp the right of nominating to the high priesthood. A
brother of Onias had long desired the office for himself. He offered a
bribe to the Syrian treasury, and, in further deference to the ruling
stale, changed his name from Joshua to the Greek-sounding one of
Jason. Presently anothei candidate, changing his Hebrew name,
Menahem, to the Hellenized form, Menelaus, arose, and, to get means
for the necessary bribery, he robbed the temple treasury.
The effect of these tactics can be appreciated fully only when we
understand that in the course of time the government of the people of
Israel had come into the hands of the high priest. It was not alto-
gether an easy office. The priests had to be firm in their faith and
pleasant in their manners; a fault in either meant failure; disunion
was to be dreaded, ami weakness was altogether fatal. As long as
the Jews were self-respecting and self-governing, they had their gov-
ernment and the reaped of others and were left alone. As soon as
their leadc is began to riot and to quarrel among themselves, troubles
descended from all sides. It has so many times been proven that "a
house divided against itself cannot stand."
Chanukah should teach us a greater lesson than the heroism of
the staunch Maccabees. It should impress upon the leaders in Israel,
the priesthood and the laity, that inner wrangling, petty jealousies,
distribution of honors, a place in the spotlightyes, even temporary
monetary gainshould be relegated to a last place in importance.
The leading position must be given to the consideration of the com-
mon good. When a Jew runs with an actual or imagined grievance to
his non-Jewish neighbor, or to the powers that be, and tries to under-
mine by flattery, bribe or threat, the position of another Jew, that
one forfeits all claim to honor or respect, and his act brings disgrace
and ruin to both his personal cause and to the name of Israel.
We have seen such practices in national and international prob-
lems affecting the Jew. Committees and congresses, lodges and or-
ganizations, and their leaders have vied with each other for promi-
nence in rendering assistance to their stricken Jewish brethren. While
they fought and orated, the needy ones suffered. In Jewish communal
life we have witnessed similarly degrading spectacles. Misleaders who
saw ways of capitalizing on the position of leadership have resorted
to the meanest and most despicable of tricks to oust honest leaders,
loyal to their followers. In political life we are treated, every few
years, to sights of this variety of mud-slinging campaigns. Aspirants
for public office, for positions of honor and leadership, stoop to foul-
mouthed accusations and slurring insinuations against their opponents.
How a sane voter can cast a ballot for that type of candidate is beyond
my comprehension.
And so it goes on. The rivalry for leadership, instead of being
based on merits and qualifications, on public satisfaction and acclaim,
seeks to gain a foothold in muck and mire. Is it any wonder that such
structures fall? What we need are leaders, not misleaders. Had the
office of high priest been kept pure and uncontaminated by inferior
material for leadership; had fitness and not bribery been the consid-
eration for appointment; had the family differences been settled
amicably by members of the family, the Syrian tyrant would not have
polluted the Temple. Had these things been considered beforehand,
there would have been no need lor a Maccabeean revolt, for bloodshed
and misery, suffering and privation.
Surely an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of
cure. The path to oppression of the Jews was shown the Syrian king
by a Jew. Jealousy and the unbridled passions of those who, though
unfit to lead, fought for positions of leadership, wrought more havic
to Israel, brought down more catastrophies on our heads than the in-
tentional and planned attacks of our known non-Jewish enemies.
This lesson we shouid learn from the story of Chanukahthat we
must look behind the scenes. Heroism is noble. Bravery is meritorious.
But, caution in preventing disorders, wisdom and fortitude in leader-
ship, loyalty and courage at all times tower above all else in lasting
values to the people. We need leaders who can stand on their own
merits; leaders who can deserve and merit the respect of their follow-
ers and of their neighbors; leaders who have earned their positions by
dint of hard work and conscientious efforts and who hold them by the
same virtues, and not through flattery or bribery or through currying
the favor of one clique or group or another. Leadership is exacting. It
demands service to the cause of the masses and not of the classes.
Leaders insure peace to their people. Misleaders embroil their people
in contention and strife. Had there been leaders in the high priest-
hood at that time Israel would have been spared much suffering. Let
us profit by the lesson of Chanukah.
We don't know the other reasons
for New York's unprecedented cab-
bage surplus, but a three-cent cigar
is no longer a campaign argument.

Editor of IV Jewish Fluridian, Miami. Fla. Dear Sir: I read with interest your arlicle. "Wonders Never Cease." Bftau-t' of the fact thai I am ISSJOUS In have everything made hwwn, I am advising you of the true condition of affairs regardine the whole matter. After some consultation with Km. Friedman of Edgmer Rockia>. N. Y., where I am also entailed in the butcher business, I came to Miami Reach in October to decide as to take over the meat market at the Merlin Kosher Market. After some discussion wilh Mr. Merlin. I "cut bark to New York and then retimed to Miami Reach about November 1st. I rented the nuai market from Mrs. Friedman, who had rented the section fur poultry and meals from Mr. Merlin, and paid a deposit of one hundred dollars on account of the total of six hundred and Iwenty-five dollars rent for the Kason. It mil before I closed he deal thai Mr. Merlin, on my fir-t visit, told me that it was %  possible to make any money selling kosher meals; that he could not net along doing that mil that he had continually sold ifah meats to I he public and kae the word kosher out. Mrs. Friedman refused to sign such a lease, though she said so far as -he was concerned she didn't •Me what I sold, hut she wanted the lease to read kosher if any Question came up. Mr. Merlin 'hen told me if she wouldn't %  gn such a lease he would. Alter a lot of talk we couldn't get totether and I got out. When I W out there was some treifah %  •es of beefi some veal and s "">e lamb in the ice box and Mf. Merlin bought it from mc Ladies Sponsor Chanuka Party The I.allies' Auxiliary of the Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation, following its custom of several years, will again entertain this year with a Chanuka party at the clubrooms of the Young Men's Hebrew Association at the corner of Southwest Fifth st. and Sixteenth ave., Sunday evening, D : %  cember 9th, beginning at 8 o'clock, ('aids will be played during the evening, anil a delicious supper, consisting of sandwiches and latkes will lie served during th" evening. A large number of reservations have already been received, and all who desire to spend a delightful evening are urged 1 > alii ml. The admission charge ia only fifty cents, which includes everything. In charge of arrangements are Mesdames Jules Wilson, Lee Weiner, Marry Kotkin, N ll Blumberg and Nat Abramson. Shall We Not Listen? Rabbis to Speak At Symposium Rabbi Julius Washer of the Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation, Rabbi Jacob M. Kaplan of Temple Israel and Rabbi Max Shapiro of Beth David Congregation will be heard in an exposition of: the essential beliefs and views of their respective wings of Jewry at the first of a series of cultural meetings to be sponsored by the local Rabbis during the winter season. This first symposium will be held at the Temple Israel Tuesday evening. December 18th, and the public is urged to attend. The next i vent will be a discussion of "/.ionism and the Jewish Problem" in which Rabbi David I. lioscnbloom, Rabbi S. M. Machtei and another speaker will be beard at Beth Jacob Congregation, Miami Beacll, during January. How many of you remember the story of "Rabbi and Priest"? Do you remember the end of the story where, after persecution and pogroms, the two, a Rabbi and a Priest, finally learn that they are brothers. That while young, the one who was the priest had been torn from his mother's side and raised out of his faith. This may happen, if you. too, won't listen. Right here in Miami, a little mile of humanity, a little girl just a year old. of Jewish parents, is awaiting a dedsion as to her final fate. Will she remain a Jewess or will she become one of another faith? Not hers to decide, but your-'. As fine a picture of a healthy, beautiful childhood as one can picture, and yet unclaimed. The Juvenile Court will send this baby for adoption somewhere, by the end of December. We Jews do not hesitate to spend money to bring a Jewish corpse to burial in a Jewish cemetery. Shall we now hesitate to bring a Jewish child, living, to her people? We cannot believe that somewhere within the reach of these words there lives not a man or woman who will avail themselves of this opportunity to brighten Iheir home. The Jewish Welfare Bureau will be happy to help this good cause along. Rhone them for furl her informal ion. and paid me a check on the First National Rank for the amount, which was St.'! and some cents. 1 am giving this statement liecause I want people to know that I was only doing in Merlin's store what Mr. Merlin told me he had always been doing, and because 1 don't want to take blame for anything more than t should.

The Maccabean festival, with its commemoration of the courage, the heroism and the perseverence of the sons of ancient I.Mattathias. has a quality of deep inspiration shared by few | other day s in the Jewish calendar. In our own day Antiochus Kpiphanes is more than an individual, he is an almost world-wide state of feeling, which seeks to sent its bitterness and frustration upon the Jewish people. ^_ Hemmed in on all sides by forces that are disquieting, if not immediately destructive, Jews are turning again to those source* of tradition and ceremony which have calmed and enriched their ancestors through many generations. The lighting of the Chanukah candles becomes at once a symbol of solidarity with one's people and of the strength that lies within the individual Jew. Parents who, in a mistaken rationalism, once ignored Ike esthetic richness of the ceremonies of the Feast of Lights, ill—this year—bring back to their homes for the enjoy%  eat of their children and for their own stimulation the ritual practices of the .Maccabean festival. This is but part of a far greater transformationoccurring in Jewish life—in America as elesewhere—which is lorcK the recognition that our forbears knew that traditions a nd customs were not the effects, but the causes ol survival. Cumulatively Important Nazism. Fascism and anti-Semitism all came in for some ty wallops during the past week, both in this country and abroad.

l -r Page Four THE JEWISH PLORIDIAN Friday, December 7, 1934 I $aMo J^magflg bulletin Edited by RABBI S. M. MACHTEI Founder and Director, Radio Synagoic of America SUNDAY MORNINGS WIOD, MIAMI, FLORIDA Vol. IV. SUNDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1931 No. 51 Leaders and Misleaders" Scripture Reading, Malachi, Chapter II, Verses 1-9, Inclusive. Last night the first Chanukah candle was kindled. Young and old will chant the appropriate prayers for eight days—prayers extolling the virtues, the heroism, the zeal of Mattathias, Judas Maccabeus and his brothers, and the bravery of their followers. Jews everywhere will retell the story of that miraculous cruse of oil. It is to these heroic zealots that we owe the perpetuation of the Faith of Israel at a time when heathen Hellenistic influences battled at our very doors and had already gained some entree at the point of the Syrian sword. The victory of the Maccabees was an accomplishment not to be minimized. But, 1 am old-fashioned enough to want to look for the cause. True it is that the victory was glorious. However, in the light of the bloodshed, the suffering, the misery attendant upon any war, it behooves us to try to avoid even "glorious" victories if that be possible. I say that I am old-fashioned enough to believe that "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." I may even place the value of prevention at "tons of cure"—and the war was only the cure— the remedy to rid the Jewish body of some affliction. If we knew just how we became sick, di.-eased and in need of a medicine, we—assuming thai we are rational brings—would in the future avoid such exposure to infection, contamination or contagion. That there is a Known specific in medicine, a tried and proven relief or cure for an ailment, and that the remedy is available and within our reach, is no sound reason for one to cast caution to the winds in preventative medicine. Though it is fine to be cured, it is much finer not to have been sick. 1 know many men whose doctors have forbidden them certain types of food. These men have, during an earlier sickness, been given medicines which relieved them of the pains insulting from a breach of the prescribed diet I have known thesi nun deliberately to violate the diet because they had at hand an immediate dose of the diug which gave them freedom from pain. What these men failed to realize was that the drug deadens the pain, but docs not protect the human system from the injurious effects of the forbidden foods. The doctor's purpose in restricting the diet was to afford the system relief from these irritants that natural healing might take place unhampered by the indigestible types of food. So it is with the story of Chanukah. It was very propitious that the -Maccabees braved the armies of the Syrian Antiochus, but, could the entire episode have been avoided? If we lay stress on the cause or causes of the Syrian oppression and permit history to teach us, we should be able to avoid similar recurrences with the consequential bloodshed. What led up to the Syrian prohibitions of Jewish observances by Jews? By what authority did Antiochus inject himself into the life of the Jewish people on their homeland? The answer is that instead of leaders the Jews had misleaders. The high priest, Onias III, though a good man, made the terrible mistake of calling in the Syrians '.o settle a family dispute. The Syrian king, Antiochus, took this opportunity to usurp the right of nominating to the high priesthood. A brother of Onias had long desired the office for himself. He offered a bribe to the Syrian treasury, and, in further deference to the ruling stale, changed his name from Joshua to the Greek-sounding one of Jason. Presently anothei candidate, changing his Hebrew name, Menahem, to the Hellenized form, Menelaus, arose, and, to get means for the necessary bribery, he robbed the temple treasury. The effect of these tactics can be appreciated fully only when we understand that in the course of time the government of the people of Israel had come into the hands of the high priest. It was not altogether an easy office. The priests had to be firm in their faith and pleasant in their manners; a fault in either meant failure; disunion was to be dreaded, ami weakness was altogether fatal. As long as the Jews were self-respecting and self-governing, they had their government and the reaped of others and were left alone. As soon as their leadc is began to riot and to quarrel among themselves, troubles descended from all sides. It has so many times been proven that "a house divided against itself cannot stand." Chanukah should teach us a greater lesson than the heroism of the staunch Maccabees. It should impress upon the leaders in Israel, the priesthood and the laity, that inner wrangling, petty jealousies, distribution of honors, a place in the spotlight—yes, even temporary monetary gain—should be relegated to a last place in importance. The leading position must be given to the consideration of the common good. When a Jew runs with an actual or imagined grievance to his non-Jewish neighbor, or to the powers that be, and tries to undermine by flattery, bribe or threat, the position of another Jew, that one forfeits all claim to honor or respect, and his act brings disgrace and ruin to both his personal cause and to the name of Israel. We have seen such practices in national and international problems affecting the Jew. Committees and congresses, lodges and organizations, and their leaders have vied with each other for prominence in rendering assistance to their stricken Jewish brethren. While they fought and orated, the needy ones suffered. In Jewish communal life we have witnessed similarly degrading spectacles. Misleaders who saw ways of capitalizing on the position of leadership have resorted to the meanest and most despicable of tricks to oust honest leaders, loyal to their followers. In political life we are treated, every few years, to sights of this variety of mud-slinging campaigns. Aspirants for public office, for positions of honor and leadership, stoop to foulmouthed accusations and slurring insinuations against their opponents. How a sane voter can cast a ballot for that type of candidate is beyond my comprehension. And so it goes on. The rivalry for leadership, instead of being based on merits and qualifications, on public satisfaction and acclaim, seeks to gain a foothold in muck and mire. Is it any wonder that such structures fall? What we need are leaders, not misleaders. Had the office of high priest been kept pure and uncontaminated by inferior material for leadership; had fitness and not bribery been the consideration for appointment; had the family differences been settled amicably by members of the family, the Syrian tyrant would not have polluted the Temple. Had these things been considered beforehand, there would have been no need lor a Maccabeean revolt, for bloodshed and misery, suffering and privation. Surely an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure. The path to oppression of the Jews was shown the Syrian king by a Jew. Jealousy and the unbridled passions of those who, though unfit to lead, fought for positions of leadership, wrought more havic to Israel, brought down more catastrophies on our heads than the intentional and planned attacks of our known non-Jewish enemies. This lesson we shouid learn from the story of Chanukah—that we must look behind the scenes. Heroism is noble. Bravery is meritorious. But, caution in preventing disorders, wisdom and fortitude in leadership, loyalty and courage at all times tower above all else in lasting values to the people. We need leaders who can stand on their own merits; leaders who can deserve and merit the respect of their followers and of their neighbors; leaders who have earned their positions by dint of hard work and conscientious efforts and who hold them by the same virtues, and not through flattery or bribery or through currying the favor of one clique or group or another. Leadership is exacting. It demands service to the cause of the masses and not of the classes. Leaders insure peace to their people. Misleaders embroil their people in contention and strife. Had there been leaders in the high priesthood at that time Israel would have been spared much suffering. Let us profit by the lesson of Chanukah. We don't know the other reasons for New York's unprecedented cabbage surplus, but a three-cent cigar is no longer a campaign argument.
