What does the heretic get in Rus-
sia? We have evil and injustice
here, God knows. But here are left
margins of liberty that the young,
the generous, the revolutionary
may broaden. They will not do so
in the name of a polity that has
slain the very concept of liberty
and equal justice. Fighting free
institutions in the name of servile
state variety A, they may help to
bring upon us the servile state va-
riety B. They are as frivolous as
they are witless.
It is I who refuse "to shut the
gates of mercy on mankind." But
sodden sentimentalists are always
hard-hearted. Share-croppers in
the South? What right have you
to whimper over themyou who
defend the "liquidation" of intel-
lectuals, kulaks, social revolution-
arieshundreds and hundreds of
thousands of men and women? Ah,
.they were bourgeois? And what
are you. the majority of you, but
the sons and daughters of those
able decent and productive people
.bat are known as middle class?
Who are you as Jews to identity
,\ .urselves with a pagan authon-
ariail servile state and glory in
: murder of men? Yes, yes, the
share-croppers are workers. The
worker, like the noble savage of
Rousseau, is now the angel image
of the romanticised Utopian escap-
isls from that duty and station in
life to which God has called them.
Will, I too, want justice for the
workers. But if there must be in-
justice in the world, it is better for
civilization including the workers,
that the conquest of that injustice
be slow than that we all, including
the workers, be shut up in the pen-
itentiary of a servile state and that
all free minds and all free men be
crushed as "wreckers" or counter-
revolutionaries. The worship of
the workers and the callousness to
their own on the part of many of
the sons and daughters of the Jew-
ish bourgeoisie is for a sentimen-
tal masochistic escape-mechanism
as witless as it is odious.
Jews in Russia? They are per-
mitted to assimilate. Quite true.
It has all happened before. Sin-
cere Jewish assimilationists are
therefore temporarily not discon-
tented in Russia. I don't have to
go to Russia to understand that.
But Dr. Hans Kohn, expert on Rus-
sia, Slavic and other tongues and
politics, writes soberly enough:
"The Soviet order means a com-
plete break with the past, an up-
rooting of individuals and groups
from their traditions and wonted
patterns of life, an effort to re-
shape them as members of a new
rational civilization meant to be
common to all men, and hence de-
void of all emotional attachments

The differences are expressed
in many ways. There are those
who do not believe in organized re-

me, when organized religion be-

labor was unorganized. But when

"Story of Two Temples"
Remarkable it is how news values meriting bold head-
lines in the metropolitan dailies dwindle to but a few lines
hidden away in the dailies in this area. Particularly is this
true when matters affecting Jews are involved.

Congress listened to by millions, dwelt rather forcibly on
the lack of religious toleration in European countries ruled
by dictators and prided himself on the fact that in these
United States we believed in equality, religious freedom,

to which they replied the next day in rather uncomplimentary
To our astonishment, one of our local dailies made no
mention whatever of this portion of the president's message,
and the other two simply printed it as a portion of the gen-
eral address. In metropolitan dailies elsewhere much notice
was taken of this portion of the address.
And yet one of our dailies the next day printed a
rather lengthy interview with a German merchant, accom-
panied by a photograph of this gentleman and his wife, and
rather plainly permitted Hitler propaganda to be dissemi-
nated in this fair city of Miami. In the interview which our
local daily thought was of sufficient importance to give it
a rather prominent spot, the oft-repeated falsehood that "the
subversive elements in Germany were being put in their
places," etc., etc., was printed rather boldly and with no
attempt on the part of the editor to edit it.

Hear Mr. Segal: What, in your
opinion, is the future of Reform
Judaism? Or has it a future?
B. T. E.
Well, to answer this I have the
true story of two temples in a
certain American city.
The one temple might be called
one of the landmarks of Reform
Judaism, which is to say that it
was almost as old as Reform Ju-
daism itself. It hail noble tradi-
tions which have to do with sainted
great-grandfathers, and in the city
in which it abides it was esteemed
as a hoary, venerable institution.
About it hovered the fragrance
of aristocratic memory, for in the
old days to belong to Anshe Gibo-
rim Temple (which was not its
name! carried the same signifi-
cance as to belong to the best
country club does today.
Aye, it stood like some enfee-
bled old man looking backward at
his gorgeous youth. At times the
old gentleman withdraws his rapt
.yes from the happy past to look,
bewildered, at the present: What
has become of his children? He
remembers they were gathered
about him a little while ago .
yesterday or the clay before. Now
i they're all gone, all gone.
So it was with this temple. On
confirmation days particularly, the
ghosts of the sainted pioneers
must have wondered what had be-
come of their children. The chil-
dren who were being blessed by
the rabbi were not of their descend-
ants, they carried strange names.
In the hearts of the- members
the temple was a sentimental thing
that had to do with dead kinsmen
who had founded it; they paid their
clues faithfully as one pays the
sexton of a cemetery for the up-
keep of parents' graves; they kept
hereditary pews as one guards an
antique sofa in which a beloved
grandmother liked to sit.
Their Judaism was an aspiration
that concerned itself chiefly with
drives for social agencies and knew
or cared little about any poetic
beauty to be derived from observ-
ance of the things of the faith.
* a /
The other temple (in the same
city) was of newer origin. Its
members were for the most part
fresh from Orthodoxy. Still sang
In their hearts the familiar voices
of cantors and if it came to that
many of them could recite the en-
tire morning prayer of the Ortho-
dox service by heart.
They knew the proper number
of rounds to wind around their
arms in the laying of the t'fiilim,
though years and years had passed
since the last time they had taken
Their Judaism was a cherished
possession they had brought up
' from their childhood. It had to do
with candle lights on Sabbath eve,
with mothers' hands blessing them,
with Sabbath haves exhaling fra-
grance, with seders and gleaming
, Chanuka lamps.
They made a happy synthesis of
the spirit of the old and the ra-
tionalism of Reform. Some of
them were irreconcilables in the
matter of wearing hats in temple;
their hats stood defiant on their
There were amusing reports: On
Yom Kippur, when the long day
verged toward noon, men left the
temple to go to some Orthodox syn-
agogue where they borrowed a ta-
lith and gave themselves to the
lull holiness of the occasion; or
they went to the synagogue- to be
near their fathers as of old. Juda-
ism was still a loud summoning in
Then hard times came and men
who had been the pillars of this
temple fell into the depression;
and it came to a moment when it
.seemed that this congregation must
perish for lack of sustenance: An
unhappy end that was befalling
many another thing that was holy.
Thus it came to pass that the
older people took steps to save
Ibis congregation by taking it over
and making it part of itself and
endowing it with its great and good
name and with its venerable tra-
ditions. Everybody said that this
was a very fine thing to do: One
Jewish house was saving the other!
But, as it turns out, the older
temple is the one that has been
saved. From the warmth of the
younger congregation (which it
had embraced in saving grace) the
older temple has derived life and
No wealth did the younger con-
gregation bring to the old, but the
riches of Jews who bring the love-
lier things of Orthodoxy, to whom
being Jewish is more than being
a solicitor for social agencies,
whose Jewish identity is more than
an affliction suffered on account
of a German dictator.
These new members (who came
out of Orthodoxy) have become
leaders of the old temple's activ-
ities; its aging bones throb with
new eagerness and it wants to go
places, as they say. Still grand
with noble tradition stands this
temple, but its eyes are not turned
'to backward-looking; its senti-
ments no longer have to do alto-
gether with veneration of dead pio-
neers in whose memory one kept
em paying dues.
1 am told that not long ago this
, temple had a social session to cel-
ebrate a religious festival. One
who was interested in religious and
social statistics made a count in
order to arrive at an answer to a
question: How many of those pres-
ent at this religious festival were
; of the old membership of this tem-
ple-, how many of the new?
He found only two of the hered-
itary members of the temple; the
remainder of the 350 were of the
new who had come in (quite fresh
from Orthodoxy) when the tem-
ples were merged.
It seemed the men from Ortho-
doxy were saving this landmark of
All this, as I hear, is typical of
saving changes that are going on
in Reform Judaism everywhere.
Re-form Judaism, it appears, is be-
ing rescued by arms that still bear
the markings of phylactery straps
that were wound around them for
the Orthodox service of the morn-
ing in their youth. Its spirit is
being revived the outgivings of
hearts that still carry the Ortho-
dox prayers with their proper in-
tonations. Its stiffening body is
invigorated by blood that has
coursed swiftly to the inspirations
of the seder drama.
The future of Reform Judaism
seems to be in the hands of Jews
of Orthodox origin who in the past
few years have been taking the
active leadership of temples.

Who has visited Miami Beach each

In 1562 Jean Ribaut, with n
band of French Huguenots fleeing
from persecution, made a landing
on Anastasia Island at St. Augus-
tine, explored the coast as far
north as the mouth of the St.
Johns River and claimed the land
for France. Kibaut and his brave
band were seeking a home in which
the bounties of nature would am-
ply supply their needs. They
found what they were seeking. Ri-
baut sent a message back to
France saying: "This is the fair-
est, fruitfullest, pleasantest land
of all the world." His 400-year-
old message is still an appropriate
Miami, Florida's wonder city, has
a great destiny. Its natural won-
ders I need not extoll. They are
loo strikingly obvious. Its growth
is an amazing phenomena. Forty
years ago it was but a trading
post. In l'JOO it had a population
of 1,681 people; in 1915 it had
15,000; in 1925 the population had
jumped to 71,419, and in 1934 it
was 127,600. Such development
does not stop arbitrarily. It was
founded upon solid influences that
are at work as much today as they
were in the past. Miami can very
confidently look forward to a sus-
tained continuance of this growth
with its accompanying benefits to
all. It is my own settled conviction
that Miami's development will be
accelerated in the future as com-
pared to its astounding growth in
the past. This will be due to a
number of factors which did not
previously exist. These include the
progress made in aviation trans-
As time is eliminated, and it in-
evitably will be, from the existing
travel schedules the effect of be-
ing close to the rest of the coun-
try is incalculable. The marvels
of the air of the future will mean
the greater fortune of Florida and
particularly Miami. So much for
Florida as a playground and resort
But Florida will perform a still
greater function in American life.
That is as seaport and commer-
cial center for future Latin Amer-
ican trade. This is its natural po-
sition. As greater "Clipper Ships"
of the air begin to carry huge loads
of freight, passengers and mail in
a matter of few hours to all of
Central and South America (and
soon this will not be a dream)
Miami will grow into on of the
great ports of the world. Exports
to Central and South America in
1933 were about $146,000,000, in
1934 close to $200,000,000. South
and Central America, with the
West Indies and Mexico, has a pop-
ulation of about 120 million peo-
ple, growing fast, developing con-
stantly. Their future is great and
it will be Miami that will be in the
forefront of traffic and commerc*
with the great lands of the south-
ern continent. This is not an idle
vision of the future. Miami should
have, under federal auspices, a
Latin American Bureau or "Casa"
to prepare for and participate in
the development of relations with
Our nation is by habit a travel-
ing people. Our foreign tourists
spend nearly eight hundred (800)
million dollars yearly in foreign
lands. Miami Beach is as wonder-
ful a resort as can be found any-
where. With foreign conditions
unsettled, with fluctuating curren-
cies, and with Miami Beach as a
Counter-attraction a host of people
who would be foreign bound should
| be heading for Miami. They, with
I Miami as the apex of Latin Amer-
, ican trade, shoul'J make Miami's
future a bright and wonderful one.
