Welfare Bureau
Begins Campaign
Attended by the entire member-
ship of the board of directors, its
officers and the Rabbis of Greater
Miami, the Jewish Welfare Bu-
reau began the first phase of its
1935 campaign for funds at a din-
ner tendered by Mr. Mark Max
Monday night at Restaurant
Wcinkle.
J. Gerald Lewis, president of the
bureau, presided and introduced
the speakers, who included Philip
Liberman, past president of the or-
ganisation; Mark Max. S. ('. My-
ers, Dr. Jacob H. Kaplan, Rabbi
S. M. Machtei, Rabbi Julius Wash-
i er and P. Scheinberg. They key-
note of the campaign was sounded
by Day J. Apte, a past president
of the organization, who told of the
work of the bureau, the increasing
demands 01) its facilities and the
fact that $15,000 must be raised
this year if the bureau is to do the
work expected of it. The fact that
not only must the organization take
care of its local poor and! needy,
hut is also faced with the problem
of taking care of transients and
immigration cases was stressed. As
a result of the stirring remarks of
the speakers more than $51111 was
immediately pledged to begin the
campaign, which will open official-
ly on Monday, February 17th. Dur-
ing the current week the Big Gift
Committee is soliciting funds from
Jewish and non-.lewish firms of
this area. All members of the
board will act as captains of teams

An Open Letter
I am just wondering whether or
not that age-old deed for which
Jews throughout the age.i were fa-
mous, that of "I'idyon Shvuyim,"
the just release of those impris-
oned has been forgotten in this day
and date.
Some time ago several immi-
grants were arrested as they were
being smuggled into this country
from Cuba. They were taken be-
fore the United States Court and
imprisoned for three months for
violating the immigration laws.
Properly so.
Following the expiration of their
sentences, these immigrants were
about to be returned to Cuba. But
. Cuba did not want them. The
only alternative was a return to
Poland, where long and severe im-
prisonment faced them because of
the fact that the men had nut
served their military service. As a
result of the intervention of local
people, and recourse to their rela-

the World War and for a long time
received about $4U,oou annually
from the Joint Distribution Com-

The Lost Lamb
So that those of you who are not
completely familiar with condi-
tions affecting the "Kashrus" sit-
uation at Miami Beach may be-
come somewhat acquainted, let us
sa> :
Some weeks ago there was or-
ganized at Miami Beach by virtue
of appointment of the president of
the Miami Beach congregation, a
"Kashrus" committee though
the majority did not attend nor
were called to meetings, the com-
mittee, aided by Rabbi David I.
Rosenbloom, began to function and
drafted' an agreement to insure
that the butchers who would sign
ould obey regulations each
butcher was to deposit a substan-
tial security for the faithful per-
lormance of the agreement .
among those admitted to the super-
vision of the committee was the
Friedman Kosher Market, operat-
ing in the same place where the
Merlin Kosher Market operated in
the past and now operates its gro-
cery and delicatessen department
. the very same place where
last year, one of the employees
made affidavit that "treifah"
meats were sold the same
place where Mr. Merlin admitted
to Rabbi Rosenbloom that during
the summer of 1934 he had "taken
liberties" and sold treifah meats
. and the same place where Max
i. o hi man several months ago oper-
ated the meat department and made
affidavit that Friedman's, whom he
was connected with, knew that he
sold treifah meats the same

ed of violating the Kosher law of
Miami Beach These Friedmans,
mother, daughter and son, were
supposed to have deposited with
the committee a note endorsed by
a Mr. Brener, though we now are
advised (hat the note deposited
with the committee was merely
signed by Mrs. Friedman herself.
Recently Swift & Company, na-
tionallj known packers, arranged
for the slaughtering of cattle for
their kosher trade at their Moul-
trie. (ia.. plant: Rev. Bloom of
Thomasvillc, Ga., was employed as
the "shoched" ... to identify the
cattle and lamb slaughterers, a tag
with the date of the killing and
the signature of the shoched was
attached to each side of beef, sad-
dle of lamb, etc.. and Rabbi Ros-
enbloom was advised by the
shoched through mail of the
amount of cattle slaughtered .
The first killing was had and im-
mediately the entire shipment of
lamb was sold to the kosher butch-
ers of Miami Beach. On Friday,
February 1st. the officials of the
Swifl Company branch at Miami
advised Rabbi Rosenbloom, his
machgiach, Rabin ( lein. and a
number of butchers that they had
no lamb in their possession, that
they expected none the next day.

An Important Precedent
The six-year prison sentence meted out to Harry Victor
Inch, leader of the South African Grey Shirts, for having tes-
t.fied to the genuineness of a forged document defaming the
Jewish people, has a dual importance.
In the first place it will unquestionably do much to halt
the mushroom growth of Nazi-inspired anti-Semitic propa-
ganda in South Africa, since anti-Semites, like other dema-
: OgUOS, cannot flourish behind prison bars.
More important, however, is the precedent it establishes
in Flnglish-speakinu; countries. Since Jews themselves know
that the "Protocols" and all the other spurious documents
employed by anti-Semites are rank forgeries, the outcome
of the South African case opens the way for similar legal
tests in the I'nited States, England and Canada.
Fighting anti-Semitism in the courts will not only result
in the inevitable exposure of Inch's counterparts and thus
root out those who thrive on manufactured racial and re-
ligious hatreds, but will educate public opinion demonstrat-
ing the utter falsity of the usual allegations against the Jews.
Congratulations
Dr. Samuel H. Goldenson, rabbi of Congregation Emanu-
El in New York, is celebrating his first year's activities in
the largest Jewish community of the world. Congratula-
tions are richly deserved because Rabbi Goldenson is setting
a high standard of religious leadership in this country.
There is something very refreshing in a rabbi concen-
trating his gifts and devoting his energies to religious mat-
ters. A large number of our rabbis regard themselves as
modern reincarnations of Leonardo da Vinci.
They insist on dazzling their respective congregations
with their versatility. Thus we find rabbis combining the
offices of dramatic critic, book reviewer, communal lay lead-
er, editorial writer, columnist and art connoisseur, as well
as political expert, all in one.
The sermons of this rabbinical specimen are usually de-
pendent on the front page of the newspaper. Sermons on
religious or purely spiritual subjects which require scholarly
research instead of the coining of meaningless phrases on
more or less topical subjects are extremely rare.
Many of these rabis could teach our publicity men a trick
or two on how to break into the news columns.
Rabbi Goldenson's dignified, scholarly and modest rec-
ord at Temple Emanu-EI stamps him as the foremost rabbi
in this country. He may not have any definite views on the
latest O'Neill play, but he is the religious leader of his com-
munity in the best sense of the word.(Jewish Times.)

Rabbi S. Benjamin, who has re-
cently returned from a trip to Pal-
estine, was the guest speaker at
the meeting of the Zionist Organi-
zation of Tampa Thursday eve-
ning, February 14th, at 8 o'clock.
Rabbi Benjamin comes from Prov-
idence, R. I., and also was affil-
iated with the Cleveland Jewish
Center of Cleveland, Ohio, and was
instrumental in building same. He
Friedmans "we bought them
from Swift & Co." "Don't use
them until I get the Rabbi in and
determine what's what they
are treifah," said Rabbi Clein. .. .
Within a few minutes Rabbi Ros-
enbloom arrived and ordered that
the FIVE saddles of lamb be
marked and held not used .
A telegram was sent to the shoched
at Thomasville, Ga., and imme-
diately there came confirmation
that the five saddles of lamb were
treifah And so the Friedmans
very piously agreed to surrender
and return the FIVE saddles of
lamb to Swift & Co., and this was
done early Sunday morning .
Not another bit of information did
mother, daughter or son of the
Friedmans give to Rabbi Rosen-
bloom, Rabbi Clein or any member
of the Kashrus committee. On
Sunday Rabbi Rosenbloom was ad-
vised to demand the production ol
the hill given to Friedmans by
Swift & Co. Message after mes-
sage was delivered to the Fried-
mans by Rabbi Clein, by Rev. Isaac
Wroobcl and by the Rabbi on the
phone, .til day Sunday and Mon-
day attempt was made to obtain
the hill from the Friedmans .
"We have misplaced it ... we have
lost it ." etc., etc., and not until
Rabbi Rosenbloom declared he
would close the store was the bill
forthcoming this on TUES-
DAY February :>th.
Permit us for a moment to di-
gress On Monday a represent-
ative of this paper interviewed Mr.
Fisher, manager of the Miami
branch of Swift & Co. and Rabbi
Rosenbloom interviewed Mr. Fisher
and other employees Another
bill, supposed to be original, was
shown to the Rabbi "It's our
fault and we will take the blame"
was the final story given by
Swift & Co.....\ll during this
time the manager and employee*
of Swift Ac Co. were told that FIVE
saddles of lamb had been found
. they said nothing at all.
Tuesday morning Friedman
brought the bill to Rabbi Rosen-
bloom and immediately it he-
came apparent why the bill had
been withheld several days the
invoice, No. 37434, showed merely
"lamb front" and no writing of any
kind where the number of fronts
usually appears. An inspection
showed that this number had been
ERASED. An inspection of the
invoice at Swift & Co. disclosed
that SIX (ti) appeared on the Swift
& Co. original and had appeared
on the invoice that Friedman re-
ceived. AMI NOT UNTIL THAT
MOMENT did Friedman confess
and admit that he had erased the
figure from the bill. WHAT HAP-
PENED TO THE SIXTH SAD-
DLE? And then Friedmans told
the story Before Rabbi Clein
the mashgiaeh, had arrived they
had ALREADY CUT UP one sad-
dle What did they do with it?
When the Rabbi demanded the
truth "We heard that you said
it was treifah, and we were afraid
of what you would say. so we
threw it out."
We leave it to you, Mr. Reader,
to deride what happened to the
number SIX saddle of lamb .
We will let you decide why it was
necessary to erase figures and to
withhold the truth until three
days later, when they were faced
with the disclosures.
Did Swift & Co. know the meat
was not kosher? We submit
that they knew or should have
known that all kosher meat is
either tagged or marked with in-
delible ink to identify it as kosher
. the butcher, if he were honest
and wanted kosher meat, would not
have accepted any meats unless he
knew beyond peradventure of any
doubt that the meat was kosher
. and pray for a moment con-
sider the fact that this kosher
butcher called for and purchased*
the meat on Saturday and wrote
the check with which he paid lor
the meat on Saturday ... all in
DIRECT VIOLATION OF JEW-
ISH LAW.
A letter was sent to the Chicago
and Atlanta offices of Swift & Co.,
apprising them of these facts .
No answer has as yet been re-
ceived.
We respectfully submit that no
Rabbi, no Kashrus committee, if
they are honest in their faith and
intentions, can overlook a happen-
ing of this kind Swift and Com-
pany, by making possible happen-
ings of this kind, cannot be trust-
ed .. according to Jewish law
. the butcher now has, accord-
ing to Jewish law .lost all "CHES-
KAS KASHRUS," having been
caught with non-kosher meats .
Having been caught at erasing in-
voices to hide facts guilty of
concealing facts that the Rabbis
and Kashrus committee should
have been immediately informed
of .
AND this same butcher .
on last Wednesday, knowing that
her case was being considered by
the Kashrus committee and the
Rabbi, had the temerity to attempt
to bribe the Rabbi by sending him
a gift of a chicken which, of
course, was immediately returned.
May are say to the Rabbi and
the gentlemen of the Kashrus com-
mittee Just a week ago you
helped convict Max Goldman of
violating the kosher law Your
duty is clear apply the same
law ... if you don't, the general
public will lose faith in you and
will draw justifiably so .
conclusions which will be uncom-
plimentary.

The Temple Guild Sisterhood of

noon ut 3 o'clock at the Temple.
They tell the story of the little
Jewish boy who always was abk-
to answer the teacher's questions
in school. One day the boy was
asked by the teacher to stand up.
"Where Is China?" He answered,
"In Asia." She asked another,
"When did Columbus discover
America?" He answered "1942."
With revolutionary tactics the boy
looked at the teacher and queried:
"Can you tell me what happened
in the year 18 A. D.?" The teach-
er thought a while and -aid. "No
I don't believe that I can." Tri-
umphantly the lad looked at her
and answered, "Jesus Christ was
Bar Mitzvah!"

\ few weeks ago n winter resident at Miami Beach sent n*> H
message thai he would welcome a visit from me, that some friends
pf his, al.-n winter visitors, wanted to meet me and to discuss some
things with me. 1 accepted the invitation and spent a pleasant eve-
ning with this group in discussing general Jewish topics. From that
exchange of thought I. too, wenl away the wiser. I had an opportu-
nity, figuratively, to feel the pulses of those present, hoth men and
women, and to be in a position hotter to diagnose the case, the malady
Iron, which they were Buffering a malady common to many persons.
1'erhaps 1 should speak of it as a maladjustment, rather than just 8
malady. These individuals whom I met. and very many others, are
ng to adjust their lives to religious teachings and practices with-
out knowing what the aim and purpose of religion is.
When l was a child of but five or six. I .call that 1 asked my
about a Biblical lesson. The

(the Egyptians) are drowning in the sea and you sing pra.ses to me.
No, dear friends. That man is not religious who hates a fellow
creature, who harbors an unkind thought concerning any man. The
aim of religious law is to build character in man, not to undermine his
moral! by urging or suggesting that he bear malice towards anyone.
Religious law urges man to emulate his Maker, to love his neighbor as
himself, to seek the good of all men, to strive for the happiness of the
human family.
As long as vou exert yourself to cause another unhappmess, you
cannot know happiness. Since the object of religious teachings is to
make men happy, to guide them on the path of happiness, and peace,
Bd harmony, those are false to their respective religious faiths who
Inject discord In, who disrupt the harmony of human relationship.
Would vou know if you are religious? Does it matter to you if your
conduct' is productive of the desired result ? Are you desirous of helping
in the attainment of the aim of Religion, of the realization of its lotty
ideals. Of bringing to fruition its great quest? Then ask yuurseli, a
all times "Is this act of mine Tor our good always1? Is it pregnant
with lasting good?" If vou car! truthfully say, "Yes! it is." then you
are religious. Nothing short of such scrutiny will suffice. No amount
of hymn chanting and flattery of Gocf will offset the harm ot any Other
conduct Happiness is man's goal and Religion's aim. Are >" con-
tributing to the sum total of happiness? Vou are? Then you are re-
ligious, regardless of the church you may or may not attend.
teacher some very pertinent questions
reply was that it was forbidden to ask such questions.
,l since then. At least, teachers have. Questions are asked and
answered. II has been acknowledged thai the learned rabbi of the
Middle Ages who said, "Who questions is halfway to wisdom." was
Mj earl) tea her was woefully ignorant of Jewish thought
mil, surely, of pedagogical methodjs.
The Deuteronomist ventured to offer a suggestion. "And when
:,sk thee in lime to come, Baying, What mean the testimonies,
he siat.ites. and the judgments, which the Lord our God hath
,-ommanded .?" The answer, then, contains this verse, "And the
I ,.,| commanded US to do all these statutes, to reverence the Lord
, ur God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it
- at this day." This, briefly, is the aim and purpose of Religion.
\ thinker lias said, "The essence of all true religions is to teach
, to live happy and to die happy." That may be a dangerous con-
fession to make, altogether too frank an admission to reveal to the
masses. But, if the greater number are still unprepared, mentally
and. spiritually, to accept so frank an admission, it is the fault of no
one else but of the religious teachers of the past and present who \
failed to educate their followers, who neglected to exert themselves
to the point of elevating the populace, of raising their God-concept to j
(hi highest possible level, above superstition, above blind faith. I
favor the policy of Maimonides, who. in writing to his disciple. Joseph
Aknin, expressed this thought: When I find the road narrow, and
can Bee no other way of teaching a well-established truth except by
nj- one intelligent man and displeasing ten thousand fools. I
to address myself to the one man. and to take no notice what-
cvei of the condemnation of the multitude."
So. 1 repeat that the laws were given to us for our good always,!
In teach ii> to live happy. Tins may shock those who believe that re- (
at the glorification of God; that the service should consist
mils of adoration: that man's actions are controlled to the end

their fellows, to those who had claims on their itl
to this prime duty of flattering his vanity. Do you think it fit-

Hainan happiness, an era of peace on earth, is the I

An Open Letter I am just wondering whether or not that age-old deed for which Jews throughout the age.i were famous, that of "I'idyon Shvuyim," the just release of those imprisoned has been forgotten in this day and date. Some time ago several immigrants were arrested as they were being smuggled into this country from Cuba. They were taken before the United States Court and imprisoned for three months for violating the immigration laws. Properly so. Following the expiration of their sentences, these immigrants were about to be returned to Cuba. But Cuba did not want them. The only alternative was a return to Poland, where long and severe imprisonment faced them because of the fact that the men had nut served their military service. As a result of the intervention of local people, and recourse to their relaMIAMI JEWISH ORTHODOX CONGREGATION (Orthodox) 1545 S. W.

One, however, married, the father of a child, both of whom were destitute and worrying for their daily food, in this city, is still in jail, for no other crime than that he cannot raise funds to be released on bond. The immigration authorities are co-operating to have this man and his family readmitted to Cuba they believe there ia lair chance of succeeding but this poor immigrant unable to raise bonds, still languishes in the Dade County jail. I know and realize that our local Jewish Welfare., Bureau cannot provide bonds, it has no funds but are there not In this beautiful city of ours sufficient men and women with hearts sincere, to help raise the sum of $500 which will release this man? I am wondering whether there are not among the many wealthy tourists now visiting us. men and women who came from abroad who realize the plight of this poor immigrant. I am wondering whether there are not now in our community, resident or tourist, those men and women who arcwilling to contribute to a fund, not more than $25 each, and not less than $10 this money being placed as a cash bond for this immigrant and returned when final arrangements are made to repatriate him in Cuba. Of course, the man may escape and run away however, the chances are negligible. I cannot but have faith in our people ... I still believe that we are a people truly of mercy and Prominent Rabbi Arrives Here Rabbi J. I.. Seltzer, secretary of the Aggudas Harabonim of America and Canada, one of the foremost Orthodox Rabbis and recognized scholarof the Jewish world. arrived in Miami this week on a tour of the country in the interests of the Ezras Torah Fund. This fund, which was organized during the World War and for a long time received about $4U,oou annually from the Joint Distribution Committee, aid the destitute families of Rabbis, Cantors and Shochtini in Eastern Europe, particularly in Soviet Russia. During the last several years, because of the wave of anti-religious feeling, more than three thousand clerical families have been in dire want and suffering. Were it not for the meager help given by the Ezras Torah Fund, these families would lace Immediate devastation. The fund is operated without expense and Rabbi Zeltzcr is here at his own expense on behalf of the Conference of Orthodox Rabbis of America and Canada, who have always aided this particular fund. An attempt is being made to raise $30,000 throughout the country to in some measure alleviate the intense suffering which these 3,000 families are now undergoing.

The Lost Lamb So that those of you who are not completely familiar with conditions affecting the "Kashrus" situation at Miami Beach may become somewhat acquainted, let us sa> : Some weeks ago there was organized at Miami Beach by virtue of appointment of the president of the Miami Beach congregation, a "Kashrus" committee though the majority did not attend nor were called to meetings, the committee, aided by Rabbi David I. Rosenbloom, began to function and drafted' an agreement to insure that the butchers who would sign ould obey regulations each butcher was to deposit a substantial security for the faithful perlormance of the agreement among those admitted to the supervision of the committee was the Friedman Kosher Market, operating in the same place where the Merlin Kosher Market operated in the past and now operates its grocery and delicatessen department the very same place where last year, one of the employees made affidavit that "treifah" meats were sold the same place where Mr. Merlin admitted to Rabbi Rosenbloom that during the summer of 1934 he had "taken liberties" and sold treifah meats and the same place where Max i. o hi man several months ago operated the meat department and made affidavit that Friedman's, whom he was connected with, knew that he sold treifah meats the same Goldman who was recently convicted of violating the Kosher law of Miami Beach These Friedmans, mother, daughter and son, were supposed to have deposited with the committee a note endorsed by a Mr. Brener, though we now are advised (hat the note deposited with the committee was merely signed by Mrs. Friedman herself. Recently Swift & Company, nationallj known packers, arranged for the slaughtering of cattle for their kosher trade at their Moultrie. (ia.. plant: Rev. Bloom of Thomasvillc, Ga., was employed as the "shoched" ... to identify the cattle and lamb slaughterers, a tag with the date of the killing and the signature of the shoched was attached to each side of beef, saddle of lamb, etc.. and Rabbi Rosenbloom was advised by the shoched through mail of the amount of cattle slaughtered The first killing was had and immediately the entire shipment of lamb was sold to the kosher butchers of Miami Beach. On Friday, February 1st. the officials of the Swifl Company branch at Miami advised Rabbi Rosenbloom, his machgiach, Rabin ( lein. and a number of butchers that they had no lamb in their possession, that they expected none the next day.

THE LOST LAMB (Continued from Page 1) Fourteen members of the Temple Sisterhood visited the Veterans' Hospital at Lake City Tuesday and brought with them gifts of various kinds. -M.I -1I.H Lazar Klopper, prominent business man, has joined) the staff of the Jacksonville Jewish Center Religious School, it was announced by Rabbi M. D. Margolis. He will have charge of the high school department and the post-Biblical course. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1985 Vol. H—No. 7 An Important Precedent The six-year prison sentence meted out to Harry Victor Inch, leader of the South African Grey Shirts, for having test.fied to the genuineness of a forged document defaming the Jewish people, has a dual importance. In the first place it will unquestionably do much to halt the mushroom growth of Nazi-inspired anti-Semitic propaganda in South Africa, since anti-Semites, like other dema: OgUOS, cannot flourish behind prison bars. More important, however, is the precedent it establishes in Flnglish-speakinu; countries. Since Jews themselves know that the "Protocols" and all the other spurious documents employed by anti-Semites are rank forgeries, the outcome of the South African case opens the way for similar legal tests in the I'nited States, England and Canada. Fighting anti-Semitism in the courts will not only result in the inevitable exposure of Inch's counterparts and thus root out those who thrive on manufactured racial and religious hatreds, but will educate public opinion demonstrating the utter falsity of the usual allegations against the Jews. Congratulations Dr. Samuel H. Goldenson, rabbi of Congregation EmanuEl in New York, is celebrating his first year's activities in the largest Jewish community of the world. Congratulations are richly deserved because Rabbi Goldenson is setting a high standard of religious leadership in this country. There is something very refreshing in a rabbi concentrating his gifts and devoting his energies to religious matters. A large number of our rabbis regard themselves as modern reincarnations of Leonardo da Vinci. They insist on dazzling their respective congregations with their versatility. Thus we find rabbis combining the offices of dramatic critic, book reviewer, communal lay leader, editorial writer, columnist and art connoisseur, as well as political expert, all in one. The sermons of this rabbinical specimen are usually dependent on the front page of the newspaper. Sermons on religious or purely spiritual subjects which require scholarly research instead of the coining of meaningless phrases on more or less topical subjects are extremely rare. Many of these rabis could teach our publicity men a trick or two on how to break into the news columns. Rabbi Goldenson's dignified, scholarly and modest record at Temple Emanu-EI stamps him as the foremost rabbi in this country. He may not have any definite views on the latest O'Neill play, but he is the religious leader of his community in the best sense of the word.—(Jewish Times.) day night, February 26th, with Miss Kate Bandrimmer and Miss Miriam Carlton in charge of arrangements.

Gershon of Atlanta, Ga., field worker and past president of the Southern InterState Conference of the National Council of Jewish Women, was the principal speaker at the February meeting of the Tampa section, National Council of Jewish Women, Wednesday afernoon, February 13, a the Tavern in Maas Bros. Rabbi S. Benjamin, who has recently returned from a trip to Palestine, was the guest speaker at the meeting of the Zionist Organization of Tampa Thursday evening, February 14th, at 8 o'clock. Rabbi Benjamin comes from Providence, R. I., and also was affiliated with the Cleveland Jewish Center of Cleveland, Ohio, and was instrumental in building same. He Friedmans "we bought them from Swift & Co." "Don't use them until I get the Rabbi in and determine what's what they are treifah," said Rabbi Clein. .. Within a few minutes Rabbi Rosenbloom arrived and ordered that the FIVE saddles of lamb be marked and held not used A telegram was sent to the shoched at Thomasville, Ga., and immediately there came confirmation that the five saddles of lamb were treifah And so the Friedmans very piously agreed to surrender and return the FIVE saddles of lamb to Swift & Co., and this was done early Sunday morning Not another bit of information did mother, daughter or son of the Friedmans give to Rabbi Rosenbloom, Rabbi Clein or any member of the Kashrus committee. On Sunday Rabbi Rosenbloom was advised to demand the production ol the hill given to Friedmans by Swift & Co. Message after message was delivered to the Friedmans by Rabbi Clein, by Rev. Isaac Wroobcl and by the Rabbi on the phone, .til day Sunday and Monday attempt was made to obtain the hill from the Friedmans "We have misplaced it ... we have lost it ." etc., etc., and not until Rabbi Rosenbloom declared he would close the store was the bill forthcoming this on TUESDAY February :>th. Permit us for a moment to digress On Monday a representative of this paper interviewed Mr. Fisher, manager of the Miami branch of Swift & Co. and Rabbi Rosenbloom interviewed Mr. Fisher and other employees Another bill, supposed to be original, was shown to the Rabbi "It's our fault and we will take the blame" was the final story given by Swift & Co \ll during this time the manager and employee* of Swift Ac Co. were told that FIVE saddles of lamb had been found they said nothing at all. Tuesday morning Friedman brought the bill to Rabbi Rosenbloom and immediately it hecame apparent why the bill had been withheld several days the invoice, No. 37434, showed merely "lamb front" and no writing of any kind where the number of fronts usually appears. An inspection showed that this number had been ERASED. An inspection of the invoice at Swift & Co. disclosed that SIX (ti) appeared on the Swift & Co. original and had appeared on the invoice that Friedman received. AMI NOT UNTIL THAT MOMENT did Friedman confess and admit that he had erased the figure from the bill. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE SIXTH SADDLE? And then Friedmans told the story Before Rabbi Clein the mashgiaeh, had arrived they had ALREADY CUT UP one saddle What did they do with it? When the Rabbi demanded the truth "We heard that you said it was treifah, and we were afraid of what you would say. so we threw it out." We leave it to you, Mr. Reader, to deride what happened to the number SIX saddle of lamb We will let you decide why it was necessary to erase figures and to withhold the truth until three days later, when they were faced with the disclosures. Did Swift & Co. know the meat was not kosher? We submit that they knew or should have known that all kosher meat is either tagged or marked with indelible ink to identify it as kosher the butcher, if he were honest and wanted kosher meat, would not have accepted any meats unless he knew beyond peradventure of any doubt that the meat was kosher and pray for a moment consider the fact that this kosher butcher called for and purchased* the meat on Saturday and wrote the check with which he paid lor the meat on Saturday ... all in DIRECT VIOLATION OF JEWISH LAW. A letter was sent to the Chicago and Atlanta offices of Swift & Co., apprising them of these facts No answer has as yet been received. We respectfully submit that no Rabbi, no Kashrus committee, if they are honest in their faith and intentions, can overlook a happening of this kind Swift and Company, by making possible happenings of this kind, cannot be trusted .. according to Jewish law the butcher now has, according to Jewish law .lost all "CHESKAS KASHRUS," having been caught with non-kosher meats Having been caught at erasing invoices to hide facts guilty of concealing facts that the Rabbis and Kashrus committee should have been immediately informed of AND this same butcher on last Wednesday, knowing that her case was being considered by the Kashrus committee and the Rabbi, had the temerity to attempt to bribe the Rabbi by sending him a gift of a chicken which, of course, was immediately returned. May are say to the Rabbi and the gentlemen of the Kashrus committee Just a week ago you helped convict Max Goldman of violating the kosher law Your duty is clear apply the same law ... if you don't, the general public will lose faith in you and will draw justifiably so conclusions which will be uncomplimentary.

Embracing Georgia, North and South Carolina, Maryland, Florida and the District of Columbia, District No. 6 includes about 2,000 members. Large delegations are expected for the convention. II. S.

Zbar and her brother, Mr. Simon Rosenbloom, have returned after a week's stay in Miami and Miami Beach visiting with relatives. The Temple Guild Sisterhood of Schaari Zedek met Monday afternoon ut 3 o'clock at the Temple. They tell the story of the little Jewish boy who always was abkto answer the teacher's questions in school. One day the boy was asked by the teacher to stand up. "Where Is China?" He answered, "In Asia." She asked another, "When did Columbus discover America?" He answered "1942." With revolutionary tactics the boy looked at the teacher and queried: "Can you tell me what happened in the year 18 A. D.?" The teacher thought a while and -aid. "No I don't believe that I can." Triumphantly the lad looked at her and answered, "Jesus Christ was Bar Mitzvah!"

SUNDAY, FBBRl AKY in. 19S5 No. 9 "1 .* 'Religion's Aim Scripture Reading, Deuteronomy, Chapter VI, Verses 20-25, Inclusive \ few weeks ago n winter resident at Miami Beach sent n*> H message thai he would welcome a visit from me, that some friends pf his, al.-n winter visitors, wanted to meet me and to discuss some things with me. 1 accepted the invitation and spent a pleasant evening with this group in discussing general Jewish topics. From that exchange of thought I. too, wenl away the wiser. I had an opportunity, figuratively, to feel the pulses of those present, hoth men and women, and to be in a position hotter to diagnose the case, the malady Iron, which they were Buffering a malady common to many persons. 1'erhaps 1 should speak of it as a maladjustment, rather than just 8 malady. These individuals whom I met. and very many others, are ng to adjust their lives to religious teachings and practices without knowing what the aim and purpose of religion is. When l was a child of but five or six. I .call that 1 asked my about a Biblical lesson. The We have proTHE JEWISH FLORIDlAN_ successful crossing of the Red Sea by the Israelites, the Lord bi.l them he silent with the words, "My creatures (the Egyptians) are drowning in the sea and you sing pra.ses to me. No, dear friends. That man is not religious who hates a fellow creature, who harbors an unkind thought concerning any man. The aim of religious law is to build character in man, not to undermine his moral! by urging or suggesting that he bear malice towards anyone. Religious law urges man to emulate his Maker, to love his neighbor as himself, to seek the good of all men, to strive for the happiness of the human family. As long as vou exert yourself to cause another unhappmess, you cannot know happiness. Since the object of religious teachings is to make men happy, to guide them on the path of happiness, and peace, B „d harmony, those are false to their respective religious faiths who Inject discord In, who disrupt the harmony of human relationship. Would vou know if you are religious? Does it matter to you if your conduct' is productive of the desired result ? Are you desirous of helping in the attainment of the aim of Religion, of the realization of its lotty ideals. Of bringing to fruition its great quest? Then ask yuurseli, a all times "Is this act of mine Tor our good always 1 ? Is it pregnant with lasting good?" If vou car! truthfully say, "Yes! it is." then you are religious. Nothing short of such scrutiny will suffice. No amount of hymn chanting and flattery of Gocf will offset the harm ot any Other conduct Happiness is man's goal and Religion's aim. Are >" contributing to the sum total of happiness? Vou are? Then you are religious, regardless of the church you may or may not attend. teacher some very pertinent questions reply was that it was forbidden to ask such questions. ,l since then. At least, teachers have. Questions are asked and answered. II has been acknowledged thai the learned rabbi of the Middle Ages who said, "Who questions is halfway to wisdom." was Mj earl) tea her was woefully ignorant of Jewish thought %  mil, surely, of pedagogical methodjs. The Deuteronomist ventured to offer a suggestion. "And when „ :,sk thee in lime to come, Baying, What mean the testimonies, he siat.ites. and the judgments, which the Lord our God hath ,-ommanded .?" The answer, then, contains this verse, "And the I ,„.,| commanded US to do all these statutes, to reverence the Lord ur God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it at this day." This, briefly, is the aim and purpose of Religion. \ thinker lias said, "The essence of all true religions is to teach to live happy and to die happy." That may be a dangerous confession to make, altogether too frank an admission to reveal to the masses. But, if the greater number are still unprepared, mentally and. spiritually, to accept so frank an admission, it is the fault of no one else but of the religious teachers of the past and present who \ failed to educate their followers, who neglected to exert themselves to the point of elevating the populace, of raising their God-concept to j (hi highest possible level, above superstition, above blind faith. I favor the policy of Maimonides, who. in writing to his disciple. Joseph Aknin, expressed this thought: ••When I find the road narrow, and can Bee no other way of teaching a well-established truth except by njone intelligent man and displeasing ten thousand fools. I • to address myself to the one man. and to take no notice whatcvei of the condemnation of the multitude." So. 1 repeat that the laws were given to us for our good always,! In teach ii> to live happy. Tins may shock those who believe that re( • at the glorification of God; that the service should consist mils of adoration: that man's actions are controlled to the end i. ce at Mis handiwork and at the worshipful attitude 11 creatures. Vou would think that man vain who instructed his dent*, his employees, to give first thought to chanting .: his goodness, and who expected them to BU their fellows, to those who had claims on their itl to this prime duty of flattering his vanity. Do you think it fitfor God to have given all these laws and statute* t t the prime -, of His glorification? Are you satisfied to have God end wed v\ | n trait that you deem unbefitting in a human being? Of i you d Hainan happiness, an era of peace on earth, is the I law. All the observances tend to this one accomplishment. Juda its offshoot, Christianity, have this same objectivi law and peace. These arc the great recurring words of the Jewish lots from the beginning. The thought of their teachers, their and prophets from Abraham to Moses; from Moses to to Hillel; from the Galilean, Meir, Main, lowi through the great list of their inspirational leadkri t< as devoted and heroic today, their continual word to hun nment of peace through just and conduct.
