NEW YORK, Dec. 20.Under
the auspices of the National Coun-
cil of Jewish Federations and Wel-
fare Funds, a four-day national
conference on Jewish welfare will
be held beginning January :;.
Felix M. Warburg will be gen-
eral chairman of the conference,
which is expected to bring togeth-
er 500 lay leaders and social work-
ers from fifty or more cities
throughout the country.
Notable speakers, lay and pro-
fessional, are expected to present.
papers and it is likely also that
outstanding leaders in Jewish wel-
fare activities abroad will report
at first hand on the welfare work
among Jews in foreign lands to-
ward which American Jewry has
made such important contributions.
"Community-wide welfare and
social service are a concern and
responsibility for all of us in these
times," said Mr. Younker, in an-
nouncing the conference. "Jewish
welfare problems alone cover a
vast field. Not only are we ab-
sorbed in the difficulties which
confront our local welfare activ-
ities and our national agencies, but
also in pressing questions having
to do with European Jewish pop-
ulations. Many of our brethren
throughout the country are ab-
sorbed likewise with the upbuild-
ing of Palestine. The conference
will devote itself to all of these
problems. Those most directly
concerned with /these phases of
Jewish interest will lead discus-
sions, so that authoritative and
detailed factual material may be
made available to community lead-
ers from all sections of the coun-
try as an aid to better understand-
ing of the local community's re-
sponsibility in connection with
these welfare activities."
At the request of the Jewish
Welfare ltureau, in our issue of
December 7th last we appealed
to Jewry at large to come to the
aid of a little Jewish girl who
had been abandoned by its par-
ents. It was to be adopted be-
fore Christmas, and unless
adopted by Jews would be lost
to its own people.
Al a result of this appeal we
received inquiries from numer-
ous Miamians, and a number
from out of town, one coming
from l.os Angeles, C'al. We are
happy to print the following ac-
knowledgement from the Jew-
ish Welfare Bureau, and to have
been instrumental in finding a
home for this baby with Miami
Jewish parents. Once again the
Jewish Floridian demonstrates
that it produces results, this ap-

My Dear Mr. Shochet:
We desire to express our kind

rendered us in connection with

inquiry was launched after the Yale

expressing objection to Dr. Sal-

SUNDAY MORNINGS WIOD, MIAMI, FLORIDA
Vol. V. SUNDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1931
Scripture Reading, Jeremiah XXIII:l-6; Isaiah IX:S,6.
A few weeks ago a Christian gentleman who is interested in the
work of the Kudu SynagOg asked me why the Jews have not accepted
and do not accept Christ. I gave him a brief answer at the time and
I take this opportunity to go a little deeper into the subject. I know.
Some of niy Jewish friends will say that the subject is too controver-
sial, too delicate, to be discussed. It had better be left alone. But ,1
was never one to shun a controversial subject. I have always found it
beneficial to arrive at an understanding about delicate and controver-
sial subjects. It clears the atmosphere for frank and honest friendship
true brotherhood without any mental reservations or inhibitions
which put both sides in an awkward and embarrassing position. When
you have cleared up moot questions you are fit to co-operate in those
things which you have in common and upon which you arc agreed.
Why has the Jew refused to accept Jesus as the Christ, the Mes-
siah? This is the proper season of the year to Cast some light on
this question. The reason may be found in the Scriptural prophecies
concerning the Messiah. The i :a which was heralded as producing
the Messiah; the era which was to follow his arrival, have not been
visited upon the human family. Thi peace, the harmony, the justice
and love, the cessation of all hostilities, the age when "they shall beat
their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks,"
have not arrived. Prophecy remains unfulfilled. The Jew still awaits
the coming of the Messiah. Even the Christians are aware of ilvs
shortcoming in prophetic fulfillment, for they preach the return of
Christ or the Second Advent. They, too, look forward to a time when
prophecy will be fulfilled.
I believe that I can best illustrate the Jewish state of mind on
the subject by a siory which I heard some years ago. It was handed
down traditionally lor the moral it contains. In a village in Russia
there lived a very pious and devout Jew whose reputation for spiritual-
ity was accepted by everyone. He lived an exemplary life and devoted
himself to Cabbalistic studies. Very often he was seen wandering
through the fields and forest-, communing with God in the free open
spaces. He arose each midnight to recite the appropriate prayers of
mourning for the destruction of the Holy Temple and for the Exile
of the Jews from the Holy Land. He was an ascetic who was more
spirit than body. The community considered him a holy man.
One day he returned from a stroll through the forest in evident
excitement. He rushed to the rabbi's house. His face beaming, he
approached the rabbi and said, "While wandering through the forest
today I heard a voice calling me. The voice revealed itself to me as
the Annointed One of God, the Messiah, who is coming to deliver us
from our bondage, ead u b..... to the- Promised Land. He told me
.......... up] arance on earth in this village, at
three o'clock in the afternoon of next Tuesday, at the spot in the forest
where I heard his Voice." Knowing this man's reputation for veracity
and spirituality, the rabbi acted on this report without delay.
He .ailed a special meeting of the entire Jewish community at the
synagogue, for the following evening. Every man was present. All
and ihades of opinion were represented. The pietist, the zealot,
thl simple-minded, the ignorant all were there. When the rabbi had
delivered hi- messagethe coming of the Messiahthe synagogu re-
sounded with the cheers of the audience. All sang the praise of God.
It was then suggested that a reception committee be chosen t)
meet this long-awaited Guestthe Annointed One of God. Nominations
were made. Names of preferred members of the community were of-
fred. As each name was announced, those of his own particular sect
or group applauded. Those of a different -hade of belief or social
level o' '"' '!'" poor objected to the nomination of a rich man
be ius \ ei Ith was favored. The rich denounced a poor man because
he wr not. bef.ttingly dressed to greet the Messiah. The liberals crit-
ici led the designee of the pious as "hypocrites." The zealots stormed
at tha mention of the name of a liberal as being a "sinner and blas-
phem .." '1 he ignorant refused to accept the learned, calling them
"highbrows." To the students, the ignorant were "boors."
The -election of a reception committee continued until the wee
small hours of the morning. The next day, and the next, and the next,
we., occupied with the election of the proper committee. No agreement
was possible. Tuesday morning dawned to find the community still
divided, still meeting, still arguing. At noon the rabbi declared that
whoever was to meet the Messiah must leave for the appointed place
in the forest. The entire community trekked towards the forest, ar-
guing and quarreling as they walked or rode.
They arrived at the designated spot, and, while waiting for the
Messiah, continued to argue the fitness of this one or that one, this
group or that group, to receive the Annointed One of GodMessiah
th son of David. Three o'clock came, and, no Messiah. Four o'clock,
five o'clock, six o'clock, seven o'clock came and went, and no Messiah
arrived. The expectant ones waited until midnight, and, disappointed
and disheartened, they returned home.
The rabbi walked home beside the spiritual one who had first
brought him the message of the Messiah's coming. All the way home
the Cabbalist said not a word. At the rabbi's doorstep he paused a
moment. The rabbi asked him if he was certain that he had heard the
m. ssage correctly. The devout one sighed and said, "Yes, rabbi. And
today I heard the same voice say, 'I was mistaken. The time is not
You who talk of the coming of the Messiah; you who pa.is judg-
ment on your brothers as to their fitness to receive Him; you who feel
that you and your sect or denomination alone is the chosen one to greet
Him and that all others are outside the ranks of "saved ones," please
take note of this story and its lesson. Messiah would have come long
since had y>u been prepared to greet Him. He would have been with
us ere this. In fact. He must have been here many times, ready to
lead us from this vale of tears into the Promised Land, into an era
of Good Will to All Menbut, finding us divided, discordant, disunited
and vainly proud He must have returned, saying, "I was mistaken.
The time is not yet ripe." We were weighed in the balance and found
wanting in brotherhood, love, harmony, peace and justice.
The Messiah comes in all generations and goes away without hav-
ing made His presence known. He came in our generation. We had
our opportunity to prove that we were ready for Him- and, the World
War broke out. How miserably we failed! How unworthy we proved
ourselves! How weak the dominant religions proved themselves to be!
Inefficacious! Powerless! The Messiah turned His back on us and
departed. The spiritually minded among us hang our heads in shame.
Because of our disgraceful conduct our mortification knows no bounds.
Perhaps you feed that "Cod's in His heaven and all's well with the
world." If so. then, for you, the Messiah has come, prophecy has been
fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God upon earth has been established.
But, for those who expect greater and nobler things from man, the
prophecies remain unfulfilled and the Son of David, the Messenger of
Love, Peace and Harmony upon earth has not yet made His presence
felt among us.
It is time that the mass of the human family realized that the
Messianic idea does not deal in personalities; that the idea is an ab-
stract one, a spiritual concept expressed in the limited tongues of men;
that it refers to an era of God-consciousness in man, in all men, rather
than to the physical presence of a Messiah of flesh and blood, of one
Divine man, among men and nations torn by strife and warfare,
hatreds and jealousies. Passive and patient waiting will not hasten
the coming of that Messianic era. We must so live our daily lives,
must so conduct ourselves, must exemplify love, justice, peace, brother-
hood and harmony at all times that, should that symbolic and figur-
ative Messenger arrive, we shall bo found ready and prepared, a united
and loving human family. When that time comes, it will no longer be
necessary to discuss the Messiah or Messianic hopes, difference- of
faith or creed or nationality, the acceptance or rejection of any man
as the Messiah. All men will know that prophecy has been fulfilled.
Not Scripture, but their own love-filled hearts will tell them so.
