It is very gratifying to note that
Miami Jews have at last awakened
to the expediency of forming a
truly useful organization.
A Inaneli of the "National Con-
ference of Jews and Christians,"
the foundation for which has been
laid, a day or so ago. by a liberal-
minded group composed of Chris-
tians and Jew-, should become an
effective means for the revival of
the tolerant spirit that prevailed
during the first two decades of
Miami's history. That feeling

that settled lure in the last twen-
ty years are by no means beyond
criticism. Their mutual hostility,
which is engendered by social and
commercial rivalries, plays into the
hands of chronic Jew-haters, who
need but the slightest excuse to
vent their malice upon Jews in
In view of the slanders and as-
persions cast by Jew upon Jew,
by inuendo and, recently, through
the local press, the wonder is that
the feeling against them isn't more
pronounced than it is.
The Jewish element in the new-
ly formed organization could great-
| ly facilitate the work it has st-
out to accomplish by eradicating
| their own prejudices, which have
[ lately been manifested with unmit-
igated asperity. Miami is afflicted
with a group of Jews whoso inor-
dinate ambition for leadership
blinds them to the harm they are
doing to the Jewish community by
their tactless aggressiveness and
by their disparagement of the few
truly influential fellow Jews. This
stupid aggregation seems to have
formed a close corporation in so
far as communal activities are con-
cerned. In the initiation of Jew-
ish movements they generally pass
the word among themselves and ar-
bitrarily decide who shall or shall
not be invited into their councils.
As a result of which the most ca-
pable and unselfish civic workers
are deprived of an opportunity to
serve the community. If a truly
influential member of the com-
munity joins the movement unin-
vited by those who have seized the
leadership, his presence is not only
deliberately ignored, but he is made
conscious of organized antagonism.
In such an atmosphere none but
those who are impervious to af-
front could render their situation
tenable and give their best serv-
ice to the community which is glar-
ingly lacking in selfless leader-
ship. Most of our present leaders
obviously have their own axes to

A Forward Step
Rabbis who this week formed (he Jewish Hoard of Min-
isters of Greater Miami are to be congratulated for taking
a step which will mean much to .lews of Greater Miami now
and in the future. Hy their action they have definitely put
an end to deception and misrepresentation.
When in the past several weeks, during the hearing of
litigation in New York City, a non-Jewish judge who pre-
sided in the case asked :"\\ hat constitutes a rabbi?" it pre.
>ented a condition that was by no means a credit to our
people. Too often have "Shochtim," sextons. Hebrew teach-
ers, collectors for charitable institutions and plain mounte-
banks and charlatans called themselves "RABBIS" to get
cheaper rates on railroads and reductions on telephone
charges. We in the extreme southern portion of these I'nited
States have too often been duped by these self-constituted
rabbis not to realize the danger we have faced- These self-
constituted rabbis, graduates of no institution whatever.
without "Smieha" from recognized authorities, propose and
do every thing that is contrary to Jewish faith and tradition.
They officiate at weddings when in truth they should not;
they participate in bizarre funeral ceremonies repugnant to
everything that is Jewish and traditional; they grant di-
vorces and do everything to garner in the "shekel." What
is worse, they present a picture of Judaism to our non-Jewish
friends that would never be recognized by any Jew.
The action of our rabbis, each of whom represents a
congregation in active existence; each of whom conducts a
Khool wherein Jewish children are taught the faith of our
forefathers, and all of whom represent every wing of .le\\r>.
have taken that forward step which is designed to. and which
wrhope will, eliminate the free lancer and irresponsible from
ithin the midst of Jewry.
If our Jews can only be made to realize that the lour
congregations of Greater Miami carry the burden of per
petuating true Judaism and should and must be supported
lothe exclusion of personal selfish gain; If our non-Jewish
friends can be shown that true Judaism can be found only in
recognized congregations and not in personal business ven-
tures; that the doors of our synauoguvs are always open to
ur non-.kwish friends, and that in these living synagogues
"id nowhere else can true Judaism be found; then and only
hen can unscrupulous adventurers be eliminated and truth
Our rabbis are to he congratulated. Above all. they must
>r supported in this forward step.

many childbirth- unattractive in

\ a matter of fact, your guess
in general would be close to the

would be as wrong as you've

Little more than a year ago the
columns of the Jewish Floridian
carried the announcement of the
opening of a department at Bur-
dine's. Miami's leading depart-
ment store, wherein ceremonial ae-
ries for the Jewish home and
synagogue would be carried.
The only si,,re south of New
Vork having such a department,
Burdine's in the year that this
unique department has been in ex-
istence has definitely proven it-
Today the Jewish resident
and tourist knows that his reli-
gious objects may be had without
in the mails and protracted
correspondence. Whether it be a
'Palis, Tefillin, Mezzuzah or pray-
er book, or a beautiful object of
art from Palestine, a cover for the
Sabbath Chalos, Chanuka candles
r Menorahs, the Miamian knows
that he may gel it at Burdine's.
