THE JEWISH UNITY

Mj Dear Dr. Kaplan:
I read with interest your open
letter published in the Jewish Flo-
ridian of May 3rd. While I can-
; ne with you in toto, yet I
admire your stand.
You are justly disturbed over the
lack of harmony and the disunity
in the ranks of Israel. We all de-
. the fact that there are fifty-
varieties of Judaism and that
of them are tasteless. Re-
in Jewry itself was a potent
m causing the fissure in Jew-
ilidarity. It did away with
i- and traditions that are
asia of Orthodox Judaism.
atter has certain views of life
which it holds as being indispen-
in I be survival of our people.
Mi tory is proving to us that the
mless, customless Jew is not
exempt from anti-Semitic attack:-'.
Orthodox Judaism has certain cus-
and laws pertaining to the
nth, Kashrus, etc., which Re-
Jewry does not admit. I, for
hould never be happy over a
1 community of eight hun-
i hi Is under Reform leader-
ship. I do not believe that that
: be best for the survival of
people. The tragedy of Re-
in has been that instead of beau-
g the synagogue spiritually,
losed it within massive, cost-
I Ms, and relegated living cus-
tn the Temple museum.
I am happy to note the present
ncy mi the part of Reform
i- to retrace their steps;
as yet, unfortunately, we can-
peak of unity in religious
practice or thought.
But though we differ in this one
I there are other projects
we can and should join
Vou may be interested to know
that according to statistics in my
sion the vast majority of
Jewish children in the Greater
. area are without a Talmud
ah edlcation. There are count-
children living in the south-
l section whose parents profess
mbership in your Temple. These
children are strangers to a Tal-
mud Torah. Years ago you were
instrumental in forming a Talmud
T irah in Terrc Haute. Today, in
half of my synagogue I extend to
you the invitation to join me in
tting this "vast majority" into
Talmud Torah. Furthermore,
you are undoubtedly aware of the
that there is not a single club
Jewish interest for the young
people of our local high schools.
Why do we Rabbis sit idly by and
see our boys join the Hi-Y? Should
not rather get them to pledge
their allegiance to "perpetuate
Jewish ideals"? Why do we per-
'iit the Young Men's Hebrew As-
ciation to be interested solely in
winning basketball and handball
games? Why do we allow Junior
iladassah and Junior Council to
;'<> untutored Jewishly?
I should be happy to join with
.vou in forming a Board of Local
Jewish Ministers, whose practices,
1 "ill as sermons, shall be eth-
'al. Space does not permit the
enumeration of other projects
which we may undertake jointly.
To you, Dr. Kaplan, goes the
Our Duty as Citizens
ll may be said, and not without
considerable pride, thai the Jew
has contributed much to the suc-
cess of every country that he has
lived in, because of his devotion
to the principles of decency, hon-
esty and clear thinking in the ex-
ercise of the right of suffrage and
his duty as a citizen.
There is a duty, therefore, that
devolves upon every Jew who is a
\otcr in the city of Miami, that he i
cannot, and will not, shirk. That
duty is to go to the polls and vote
. but before exercising that priv-
ilege to carefully analyze the prob-
lems confronting him and his lei-
low citizens, and lo choose men to
administer these affairs of govern-
ment, based on records, reputations
and achievements, and noi on
sound, fury, mere promises or wild
That the citi/ens of this com-
munilj are interested in the fu-
ture of the community is evidenced
by the more than twenty-five per
cent increase in the vote Cast over
anj previous primary election.
We hold no brief for those mem-
bers of the police force, be they
men of the ranks or those in com-
mand, who forgot their oath of of-
fice and permitted conditions lo
exist which brought about disre-
pute for the city avd dissatisfac-
tion on the part of the citizens.
Km certainly no right thinking
man can condemn the vast major-
ity of the splendid members of the
police force because of the short-
comings of a few.
The bond problem certainly is of
importance to all of us. A com-
plete disavowal may bring untold
disaster to Ihe credit of Miami .
and yet simply casting I his prob-
lem aside will nol bring relief.
where perhaps relief may and
should be provided.
Wo have not agreed with many
of the actions of our mayor, though
he should be given credit for many
acts ill' service lo our community.
Why Ihe question of the Honorable
Mayor should be injected into the
present election is beyond us. when
a study of the charter provisions
indicates thai it was the desire and
intent of its framers that Ihe of-
fice of mayor be rotated.
It therefore becomes a study of
Ihe qualifications of the candidates
thai we must make before we cast
Out in front at last Tuesday's
primary stood Alexander Orr, Jr.,
one whose devotion to public wel-
fare is loo well Known to need elab-
oration. Just lo recall the fact
thai as a result of his sincerity and
fair mindedness the Jewish Wel-
fare Bureau just several weeks ago
was (he recipient of Ihree thou-
sand dollar- from the Greyhound
Welfare Fund, in distinction wilh
the fact thai Ihe same Jewish or-
ganization was entirely ignored in
a distribution of funds from the
horse tracks. His stand for de-
cency and economy in government
and a straightforward policy of
law enforcement marks him as one
well qualified for Ihe office.
Running third in Ihe primary
came Robert R. Williams, well
known for his soundness on public
i sues. A splendid record for
square dealing earned by him in
his private business life, and dur-
ing his Incumbency as a justice >f
the peace, his own economical mode
of life, his ability to think clearly
and to get to the bottom of things
and at the truth of an issue stamp
him as one who should receive Ihe
support of the clear thinking in-
The only incumbent to qualify in
the primary is Orville Rigby, a
staunch member of organized labor,
wilh a clean record in regard lo
law enforcement and one who has
noi hesitated lo an independently
when Ihe occasion required.
We do nol believe that Ihe clear
thinking and sincere voter can af-

sion of Miami men who are ex-
tremely radical in their trend of
thought, who are rash in their
promises, and who so far forget
themselves as to promise defiance
of the duly constituted courts of
the land in order lo rouse the mob
spirit of the voters.
We feel that Ihe election of Al-
exander Orr, Robert R. Williams
and Orville Rigby will result in
the safe and sane correction of all
evils that may exist today. We be-

Tel AvivThe establishment of
a new industry in Palestine was
discussed here by a group of dia-
mond cutters who have organized
for the purpose. A great many of
the diamond cutters of Belgium,
the world's greatest diamond pol-
ishing center, have come here
within the past few years.
Owing to the decline of the world
diamond market, which has partic-
ularly affected South Africa, pro-
duction center for diamonds, the
Belgian cutters were severely af-
fected. It is believed that a great
majority of Belgium's most
skilled cutters are Jewish. If pres-
ent plans should go through, Pal-
estine will be prepared to com-
pete with Belgium in the diamond
cutting market as soon as the dia-
mond industry should be restored
to its previous importance.

A Lesson for American Jews
Dr. Einstein spoke about it in New York one day last
month: Oh, how Jews in Germany desired to be less Jewish.
They wanted even to forget (hey were Jewish, hoping that
others would forget it also.
Ky reason of being less Jewish they felt safe. Anti-
Semitism couid not hurt them: Anti-Semitism, they were
-tire, was a venom directed only against the East European
Jews who since the war had come to Germany. They could
feel nothing in common with these East Europeans. These
were really aliens to them; they were far from their own
happy lives unfortunate strangers for whom they gave
charity generously but with condescension.
Hut a time came: flow strange! The Nazi persecutors
made no distinction between these Kast-Kuropcans and Ger-
man Jews who had done their best to be less Jewish. The
same pain was inflicted on the one as on the other.
Happier were the Jews who knew why they were being
afflicted and could, at least, rejoice in the approval of their
consciences. They had been faithful, they had been wholly
s: For this they suffered.
In any event, German Jews discovered the essential
brotherhood of Israel. If they had believed that they were
different from other Jews "We are really not kin to
them" their enemies had told them: "You are one and
between you and these others we know no difference. You
are all Jews together. You must suffer the same penalty."
This is the lesson of Jewish unity German Jews learned
I y so much pain. It is a lesson that American Jews may
well take to their hearts at no cost of pain whatever. (H'nai

planting of the Hadassah Fore I
at Kiryat Anavim.
More than 10,000 trees have al-
ready been planted in this forest,
according to Mrs. Eunice Elkind
Hi rnstein, chairman of the Jewish
National fund Council of Hadas-
sah. This is the minimum number
thut constitutes a forest, and now
the 600 Senior and Junior Hadas-
sah groups will begin the planting
of another 10,000 trees to enlarge
the forest area.
"The idea of planting a tree as
i a tribute to a mother is most ap-
pealing to American Jewish wom-
en," .Mrs. Bernstein said. "Rather
than present a mother with an
ephemeral gift the donor plants a
tree in Palestine that becomes a
permanent gift to the Jewish
homeland and a permanent tribute
to the person honored."
The Hadassah Forest consists
mostly of pines, which are inval-
uable in that section for arre ing
