The Other Side
Of the Story
Even butchers are reasonable at
limes. Everything they do or try
to do must have a motive, whether
thai be a selfish monetary one, or
one inspired by a feeling of injus-
tice and unfair treatment.
We have tried to fathom the rea-
son for the non-adherence of some
of the butchers of this area to-
wards the Kashrus Committee of
Miami Reach. And in fairness,
PERHAPS THE BUTCHERS ARK
NOT ALTOGETHER WRONG.
When interviewed charges of dis-
crimination against the members
of the Kashrus committee are def-
initely made. "They are not play-
ing fair," says the butcher. "They
have their own favorites, and if
any charges were brought they
would whitewash their favorite,"
gaya another butcher.
Let us analyze these statements
and the facts Perhaps there is
some truth in these charges. Con-
tracts were drawn by the commit-
tee which, if lived up to, would soon
establish a system to enable at
least part of the population to have
kosher meats. One of the salient
features of this agreement was the
placing of a CASH BOND with the
committee to insure the perform-
ance of the agreement. WAS THIS
PROVISION CARRIED OUT? The
facts, much to our regret, are:
ONLY ONE butcher placed a check
for the amount required with the
committee. The second butcher
signed a note, giving as security a
truck, though this truck is under
lien to a finance company. The
third butcher as late as Wednes-
day had not even given any sort
of collateral to the committee.
BUT and this is the fact that
astounded all. The store which was
recently purchased from one who
had confessedly sold "treifah"
meats all summer and until a short
time ago; and where charges had
been brought under affidavit that
the present owner had knowledge
thereof; this store presented as
bond, a note ENDORSED BY A
MEMBER OF THE KASHRUS
COMMITTEE ... the same com-
mittee which would he the judge of
the facts if charges were to be
made. What a beautiful commen-
tary upon justice, and fair play.
With all respect, we cannot help
but direct these gentlemen to an
Inquiry as to what the Jewish law
specifically provides in such cases.
We submit and we believe, all
Rabbis will agree that by this
action the entire committee has
rendered itself disqualified to act
further in any Kashrus matters.
There is one happy fact that we
have gleaned. The integrity, the
honesty and fairness of the spirit-
ual leader of Miami Beach. Rabbi
David I. Rosenbloom, remains un- ,
questioned and unassailed, even by
i lin-i who do not agree with him.
We are commanded to "remove
the evil from within thy midst." |
Truly this is the time when we
should remove all question of doubt
from the minds of the general
Gentlemen of the Kashrus Com-
l mil tee: "Remove the evil from
[within thy midst." "Play fair and
[square with all butchers and show
favoritism to none." "Demand the
Dedicated to the Conference of Orthodox and Conservative
Rabbis and Laymen of Florida, meeting at St. Petersburg and Tampa
January 20th and 21st.
And it shall come to pass that the Synagogue shall be established
at the top of the hill and all of Jewish faith shall flock unto it, includ-
ing those who were formerly aloof, for the unaffiliated shall then be
no more in the land. It shall stand beautiful, commodious, in form
and style characteristically Jewish, its Interior replete with Jewish
symbolism,a shrine for devout and unaffected worship, a fountain-
head of Jewish education, a center for sociability and fellowship. It
shall have a mortgage, but only in proportion to its resources and
not greater than it can bear.
Its prayers shall express the Jewish soul and be attuned to the
Jewish heart. Its music shall have its roots deep in Jewish yearning
and aspiration. Its sermons shall give moral and spiritual nourish-
ment and nothing that is vital in human life and character shall be
alien to them. And all its company shall be taught of the Lord, from
the youngest of them even unto the oldest of them, for there Jewish
education shall blossom like the rose and shall saturate every activity
of the Synagogue like a refreshing stream. Its young people shall
dream dreams and see visions that are redolent of Jewish mysticism
and idealism. Its Sisterhoods and its Brotherhoods shall be an in-
tegral part of the whole, the problems of the Synagogue itself being
their problems and their own contributions to Jewish life unfolding
aa a part of the same flower and fruit.
Its lay leadership shall be a leadership of knowledge and char-
acter and Jewish worth. Its rabbis shall minister to every human
need, not indeed individually, but collectively, for there the scholarly
preacher and the trained educator and the understanding pastor shall
all come into their own. The call to social service and to social justice
and to civic- righteousness and to good-will and to universal peace and
brotherhood that shall sound like a clarion from the pulpit there,
shall not fall on deaf ears there, but shall go forth from there to
make itself felt in the affiars of men,in the lifting of mankind to
a higher plane of life and conduct and in the building of a better
world to live in.

mary of Jewish legal immigration

Arab Leaders Charge Fraud in
JerusalemA charge that Arab
leaders administrating relief funds
raised in 1929 for the victims of
the Arab-Jewish riots of that time
are guilty of fraud is made by Al-
diffa, Arabic daily. The paper as-
serts only $5,000 was made avail-
able to Arab sufferers from the
1929 riots out of a total of $65,000
raised for the purposes. The daily
charged that the balance of the re-
lief fund was spent by the Mufti
of Jerusalem and the Arab Exec-
utive on political purposes.

CAN IT BE?
By RABBI I HI MILLER
The B'nai li'rith magazine in its January issue informs
us thai an attack on the organized world boycott of German
goods featured the address of Judge Joseph M. I'roskauer in
a symposium on anti-Semitism in America, held recently in
New York. "Since Hitler came into power." said the hon-
orable judge, "I have not bought five cents' worth of Ger-
man goods. That is my individual right. Hut when 1 go out
and ask for an organized boycott which interferes with the
commercial transactions of my country. 1 am letting my emo-
tion as a Jew interfere with my duty as an American cit-
Apparently the honorable judge has succeeded, after a
great inner struggle, we presume, in suppressing his emo-
tions as a Jew. Americanism, Hit) per cent straight and un-
diluted, has triumphed. Hut our heart aches for the hon-
orable judge. Every adolescent can inform him what hap-
pens when people suppress their emotions A whole list of
neurotic disorders may prey on the honorable judge as the
price of his sacrifice on the altar of exalted Americanism.
Moreover, the worthy judge seems to impugn the pa-
triotism of everyone who is advocating the boycott. We must
inform the American Federation of Labor and other organ-
izations who had no realization of the enormity of their sin.
They thought they were identifying themselves with forces
against persecution, against fascism, against injustice. He-
hold, they were committing treason against our republic.
And the anti-Semites who are seeking faults in the Jew can-
not quote the honorable judge, a leader in Israel and high
in the councils of that aristocratic, self-appointed Jewish cab-
inet, the American Jewish Committee, as implying that the:
Jewish people, who are supporting and advocating the or-'
ganized boycott against Hitlerland, are derelict in their duty I
as American citizens.
We feel that even the honorable judge has compromised
his 100 per cent patriotism. He has bought no German goods '
and proclaims the fact. Undoubtedly, hundreds of thousands
looking to him for leadership will follow his example. And
the result is a boycott, though it remains unlabeled. More-
over, as an individual we owe a duty to our country. If an
organized boycott is treason, so is an individual one. Is trea-
son applicable only to organizations? The honorable judge,
from his point of view, should make it his business to buy,
publicly, German goods. Thus will his emotions as a Jew-
be completely repressed and his duties as a citizen stand
triumphant.(The Jewish Press.)

from Genesis. Heresy? Am I voicing a thought that had better bi

Divine laws in operation, which lead me to doubt the correctness of our

Firstly, if God had willed it to be that man should have dominion,

and all else which man subdues only by dint of strength and
at great sacrifice. Had God decreed otherwise, it would have
and would, now, try only that man speak to and order the
to do his to submit to him, and they would do so.

But. in reality, what do we do'.' Does the tree bear that fruit purposely
to pro I "id'.' 1- it, Consciously, that the tree furnishes u-
with delicate fruit? No! The fruit-bearing plant responds to the
natural law of reproduction of the Bpecies. It bears its young. it>
offspring, in the shape of the seeds. To tide these tender young over
the period of decomposition upon earth, or within the ground, until
they have sent forth their own roots to draw nourishment from the
earth, the parent tree furnishes its seedlings with a supply of fond
which we know as the meat of the fruit. When we pluck the fruit
from a tree, we are robbing it of its young, of its children, of potential
fruit-bearing plants. When we eat these fruits, we are murdering the
children of the tree or plant; we are cannibalistic. You can carry this
example to it.- logical conclusion in the animal realm, when you eat
lamb, mutton, veal, or any other flesh of animals. The mothers of
these animals did not hear them with the intention of furnishing you
and me with choice chops or tender cuts.
How did tin human beings in the fairy tales feel about being de-
voured by a giant or an ogre? You can't conceive of it? Sir Arthur
Conan Doyle did imagine it. In one of the last Bhort stories he wrote.
he tells of a visit to Mars by an Earth-man. While talking to a group
of Martians, the visitor heard a strange and terrifying noise. The
Man.an.- were terror-stricken. They turned from this Earth-man and
rushed to hide in eaves. The Earth-man went with a group of Mar-
' an-. From the entry to a cave he watched and saw a large creature.
of enormous proportions, swoop down upon the fleeing men of Mars.
grab a handful of them and devour them. His hunger appeased, this
giant returned to his lair, and the Martians, timidly, again venture*
forth from their hiding places.
The visitOI was astonished at the cowardice of the Martians and
he told them that such a thing would'not be tolerated upon Earth. On
our planet, he explained to them. Man was the "Top-Creature," the
dominant and ruling class. The Martians marvelled at such news.
They admitted that their planet was inhabited by a large number of
these gigantic animal- who swooped down from the mountains and
fed upon the people of Mars, in much the same fashion as we. people
of Earth, feed upon the lower animals on our planet. The Earth-man
was dumfounded to learn that the human inhabitants of Mars were
not "Top-Men." It appears that, if they have a Bible on Mars, domin-
n their planet, is given by God to these Ogres who prey on the
Of course, it all depends on who writes the story, as to who is
the hero. It is related that a man despaired of human society and left
his city dwelling to become a hermit in a hut at the edge of the jungle.
II, spent years living close to nature, mingling with the beasts, and
ng their habit- and their language. During this time, the hermit
had occasion to win the friendship and the gratitude of a lion, from
whose paw hi extracted a thorn, and whose infected and festered paw
. i healed. One day. in a friendly dispute, the hermit held forth
on the strength and mastery of man, and boasted to the lion of man's
dominion over all the creatures. The lion took exception to this re-
mark med for himself, as King of the Beasts, the superior
strength. The hermit offered to prove the truth of his statements to
the lion. Together they went to the nearest fortified and walled city
of men. Approaching within a few yards of the city gate, they
I. The hermit directed the attention of the lion to a series of
statues ornamenting the wall. The sculptor had portrayed a man lead-
ing a procession of animals. The man held one end of a rope in his
hands. To the end of the rope were tied several iron rings which pro-
I from the nostrils of a lion, a bear, a wolf and other wild beasts.
"See," exclaimed the hermit, "man is the master! He leads all these
animal- captive!" "True," replied the lion. "I see, but. who was the
sculptor, man or beast?"
Thus it is that we, of this earth, of the genus homo, lay claims
to supremacy. We are "Top-Men." If you don't believe it, why, just
read what has been written about who shall have dominion. I should
like to interview the fruit trees, the animals whose children we con-
sume as food, all else on this earth which we appropriate for ourselves
without questioning the fairness of our acts. I should like to have
them read me that portion of their Bibles which refers to dominion.
I wonder if God has told them that they must submit to man; and,
if He has. why don't they submit meekly, why do they offer resistenee,
why does the rose protect itself with thorns, why does the lamb bleat
and cry, why does the fish try to loose itself from the hook, why does
the earth hide its potatoes, its carrots, in the ground to compell us to
soil our hands by digging? Why. if we are their lords and masters,
don't all these respond to our beck and call? Is it possible that they
