Kosher Butchers
Begin Campaign
The kosher butchers of Miami
Beach held an interesting meeting
last Monday night at which condi-
tions affecting the business were
discussed. Plans for the strict ob-
servance of the principles of the
organization were discussed. These
include strict observance of kosher
laws and regulations, strict sani-
tation of all stores, fair dealing
and courteous treatment of cus-
tomers and a campaign of educa-
tion to acquaint the public with
the benefits of purchasing from
Jewish butchers. This educational
campaign will include the publica-
tion of suggested menus for the
Jewish home and the proper prep-
aration of foods in accordance with
Jewish dietary regulations. Rabbis
of this area will be invited to ad-
dress the butchers at a series of
meetings that are being planned.
Building for tike JrnifTLire
Much of the existence of the Jewish people, despite persecution, po-
groms, auto-da-fes, Hamans and Hitlers, is the wise planning of our fore-
fathers for the future generations.
We, too, can do our share towards the perpetuating of our people. And
while thus preparing for the future insure the well being of the present.
Miami needs and must have a community center where its Jewish boys
and girls may meet and receive their training as Jews and Jewesses in
clean and wholesome surroundings. Though we in Miami have until now
liked to talk about it, we have done very little towards the realization of
this goal.
Sunday midnight, January 19th, the Young Men's Hebrew Association
is staging a gala show at the Olympia Theatre for the sole and only pur-
pose of raising funds towards the erection of a community center ... a
building for your child and my child.
NOW IS THE TIME TO ACT BUY YOUR TICKET NOW ... and
thus bring nearer the realization of that sought-after and much desired
. .. necessary BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE.

Miami's popular downtown grey-
hound racing plant, opens its 1935-
1936 racing season Tuesday night,
January 21, with the presentation
program featuring some of the,
of an all-star 11-race inaugural
fastest dogs in America.

oughly renovated and refurbished

the personal supervision of Jake

and is ready to entertain a record |
breaking crowd at the gala open-
ing.
Racing Secretary Tom Benner

greatest cards ever to go to the
box on the first night of a local
program. Although the great
number of greyhounds kenneled j
at West Flagler541 dogsper-
mits of a highly diversified rac- j
ing schedule, by far the larger'
portion are hounds with national
and international reputations.
Twelve of the fleetest dogs at
the track have been thoroughly
schooled for the feature Inaugural
at 5/16 of a mile from which eight
will be chosen at the last moment
to face the starter. Included in
this group of hand picked stream-
lined windburners are: Speedy
Lad, Fred Whitehead's sensational
performer out of Kitty Dunn by
My Laddie, whose breeding pre-
cludes his being anything but a
great dog, and Red Whisk, a half
brother that won popular acclaim
at West Flagler last season and
the championship at Atlantic City
last summer.
Mannie Gates and his orchestra,
Miami's own top musical organiza-
tion, which for the past two weeks
has been playing on Ben Bernie's
nationwide broadcast while all the
lads of the Ol* Maestro' took a
breather, will supply the music

self not a little fame relieving

olic U-Ol' Miss football classic at
.Miami New Year's Day, will do
the announcing at the track as
well as handle the mike for the

Temple Israel was packed to ca-
pacity Wednesday night when Jews
and non-Jews thronged to hear Dr.
Stephen S. Wise deliver an address
on "The World Jewish Scene."
Dr. Wise was introduced by Rab.
bi Jacob H. Kaplan, following an
introductory address by Mr. Her-
bert U. Feibelman, president of
the Temple. Dr. Wise began with
describing conditions in Soviet
Russia and summed it up "While
the body is safe, the souls of Jews
are not free in Soviet Russia." Dr.
Wise continued his address by de-
scribing conditions in Roumania,
the pitiful plight of starving Jews
in Poland, Galicia and other Euro-
pean countries.
He waxed eloquent in telling of
Hitler atrocities and appealed to
the Christian world to aid in the
fight against Hitlerism because
"the Jews are merely in the front
ranks of the skirmishes today
we're doing the fighting the
real battle is not against the Jews
. it is against Christianity and
against every form of religion."
A thunderous ovation was given
the speaker when he appealed to
every American to boycott the
Olympic games. "It will be a moral
disaster for our boys and girls to
expose them to Hitleristic poisons."
"I predict that our country and
our government will do more than
they have yet done," Rabbi Wise
said in talking of President Roose-
velt's denunciations of dictators
and oligarchies in Europe. "I do
not believe that Nazi Germany will
remain unchallenged by civiliza-
tion any longer," continued the
speaker.
The speaker urged a boycott of
German made goods and prayed for
the time when Germany would be
returned to its people and its for-
mer status as a civilized country.
In the afternoon Rabbi Wise was
guest of honor at a luncheon in the
Alamac Hotel, when he spoke in-
timately regarding Jewish affairs
and pled with his audience for co-
operation in the work of the Amer-
ican Jewish congress and the Pal-
estine appeal.
Mr. Sam Simonhoff presided.
Mr. Herbert U. Feibelman and
Rabbi Dr. Jacob H. Kaplan spoke

Our Duty
Jews of this area, resident and tourist both, cannot evade
and we know they will not shun that duty which has been
cheerfully accepted, and evtn eagerly sought for by our Jews
during the many centuries of our existence.
Jews do not need to be urged to help their fellow men,
women and children when they are in need. It is only that
so many of our Jews cannot be ordinarily reached that causes
them to forget.
Members of the local B'nai H'rith Lodge, as true sons
of the Covenant, have assumed a task pleasant and hon-
orable ... of reaching their fellow Jews throughout this
area NOT FOR THEMSELVES NOT BECAUSE
THEY SEEK GLORY AND HONOR ... but for the purpose
of enabling every Jew to DO HIS SHARE FOR THE POOR
AND THE UNFORTUNATE.
Monday these representatives will approach you for your
contribution for the Jewish Welfare Bureau JEWS WHO
KNOW WHAT SUFFERING MEANS POSSESSED OF
HUMAN, PULSATING HEARTS THROBBING IN UNI-
SON AND SYMPATHY WITH THEIR LESS FORTUNATE
BRETHREN these Jews of Greater Miami, these tourists
who come to sunnv, balmv Miami.
ALL WILL .. ALL MUST GIVE. GIVE, and GIVE
. until their own consciences will have been satisfied and
their souls be content and happy that "WE. TOO, HAVE
SHARED!"

and Smile
Jacob II. Kaplan, Ph.D.
The Most Important (iroup in Jew-
ish Life.
Of course it is the Reform Jew-
ish group! Not knowing anything
about other Jewish groups, the
Reform Jew hasn't any doubt about
it. The reform Jew is the inheri-
tor of all the traditions of the
Past, and he has adjusted his re-
ligious outlook and practice to the
needs of the times. He is modern,
he is a man among men; he is
proud of his Judaism and of the
part the Jews played in the His-
tory of the World, of his contribu-
tion to the religious thought of the
world. The Jew in his Temple is
not ashamed of the dignity of his
worship, of decorum at services,
of the scholarly attainments of his
Rabbi, and of the fine religious
Sunday School from which the
children bring home stories of
heroes, poets, philosophers and
glorious past achievement.
"But," says the Orthodox, "not
so fast, please. I grant you that
without Reform or Liberal Juda-
ism there would be no progress
in religious life, as you so often
put it, but without orthodox Juda-
ism there would be no Judaism
at all. Our children are the only
ones who really study the holy
tongue, and can read the Bible
in the beautiful Hebrew language
in which it was written. We keep
Kosher in our homes, which is a
bond of union among all Jews. We
may not have the order and de-
corum which you have but we
have socialibility even during the
services. We don't let the rabbi
or cantor pray for us. We all
pray with the reader. We catch
the spirit of Judaism by living ac-
cording to Jewish traditional modes
of life."
"You, talk about Jewish life I
You don't keep the Sabbath any
better than we do," says the Re-
form Jew.
"But," answers the orthodox,
"that may be true, but we at least
have an aching heart when we keep
our business open on the Sabbath,
while you have already forgotten
that there ever was anything holy
and sacred about the Sabbath."
A third Jew listening to the ar-
gument enters into the discussion
at this point with the remark, "you
may both be right, but the real
interest of the Jews is Palestine.
That is the symbol of Jewish na-
tionality, and whether one is or-
thodox or reform means nothing.
To be a nationalist embraces all
your individual ideas. You need
not be anything of a religious
designation as long as you belong

ices tonight Rabbi Julius Washer

to the Jewish people, and help to
build up a Jewish home land, that
is all that is necessary. Whether
you are Reform or Orthodox, if
you are not a nationalist, you are
not a part of the Jewish people.
And that's that."
"Suppose we both say you are
right, which you are not, we ask
you: "what kind of a nationalist
must one be to be a good Jew ?
A Mizrachi? One who believes
in siliit observance of all the laws
and customs of Israel? Or a Poale
Zionist? One who docs not believe
in any of the old forms of Jewish
life? Or can one be a good Jew
by merely being a good Zionist and
remaining true to Reform Juda-
ism or Orthodox Judaism? You
see, it is not as simple as you
seem to think."
"Personally," says the Reform
Jew, "I think that Reform Juda-
ism has the most important group
in Jewish life because we have a
clear cut program, and we know
what we stand for, namely we are
Americans by nationality, and Jews
by religion. And that is all there
is to it."
"Well," says the Orthodox Jew,
"we are just as good Americans as
you are, and are Jews by religion
but our religion and your religion
is not the same."

Burdine's Open
Beach Store
Six thousand persons thronged
Lincoln road Friday night b.
7:30 and fc p. m., as Burdine's open-
ed the doors of its new store in
Lincoln road, Miami Beach for the
informal fashion show presented
on the mezzanine floor. Traffic was
blocked for seven blocks, the jam
extending to Collins avenue on the
east and outward in every direc-
tion from the store.
As spectators entered the store
they were directed at first to the
mezzanine floor, as original plans
of the management had been to
display the models on the main
floor. But by 7:30 the balcony
was jammed to the last available
inch and three policemen were
hastily summoned to clear the mez-
zanine and direct spectators to the
main floor. Within 20 minutes
1,000 additional visitors walked
through the doors. Arrangements
were swiftly changed and the mod-
els displayed their costumes from
the balconies, with a sea of up-
turned faces witnessing the parade
which continued until '.':4."> o'clock.
While the fortunate ones watch-
ed the glittering pageant within,
several thousand crowded the door-
ways, the sidewalks and streets,
in vain attempt to gain an entrance
to the brightly lighted store, packed
with visitors as smartly gowned as
some of the models themselves.
There were as many men as wom-
en in the crowd, which was a gay
one, eager and apparently fashion-
miniled.
An orchestra of seven pieces
played during the parade of mod-
els. There were 20 women mod-
els and two men.

I recall the days before I traded

Marcus Loew and vaudeville at $26
per week. There was that mo-
mentous instant during my first
out-of-town theater date in a small
West Virginia mining village when
a rough miner in the gallery, dis-
pleased by my artistic efforts, a-
hem, precipitated a huge wad of
chewing tobacco and a full mouth-

| onto my "finger" hand right in the
middle of a sonata. To the good
old days may they never return.

wJewisti IFIIondli& in i% COMBINING 7/7/7 tf> JIlBWIISilh IU111H1ty H Vol. 9—No. 3 MIAMI, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, JANUARY 17. 1936 Price Five Centi Famous Stars Appear Sunday "Final plans for the gala show we are presenting at the Olympia Theatre midnight, Sunday, January 19th, have been completed," announced Boris Schlachman, executive director of the Young Men's Hebrew Association. Nick Kenny, Auby Keoskie, Walter Jacobs, Phil Berle and others prominent in the amusement world have been active in the promotion of this benefit show, the funds of which will be used for the erection of a community center for the Young Men's Hebrew Association, plans for which have already been drawn. Belle Baker, Lou Holtz, Fred Berrens, Sylvia Froos, Mclntyre and Heath, Ben Bernie, Georgie Price, Sammy Walsh are only a few of the famous stars of screen, stage and radio who have pledged their appearance to entertain the capacity audience expected. Milton Berle will head the entire cast of the Hollywood Country Club Revue. Others who will send their entire floor shows are Earl Carroll and the Palm Island Club, Ira's Supper Club, Town Club Casino, Frolics, Royal Palm Club and Club Bagdad. Paul Sabin and his orchestra will be on hand to furnish music during the evening. Nick Kenny, famous columnist and radio editor of the New York Daily Mirror said, "It will be the finest aggregation of noted stars appearing in any one performance that this area has ever witnessed, and it will be your loss if you miss this gala show." Belie Baker, beloved songstress and comedienne of the vaudeville stage, said, "I believe it is high time that Gretaer Miami erected a community center for its Jewish boys and girls. That's why I am going to appear and give you some real entertainment." All seats will be reserved and may be obtained at the Olympia Theatre, Alamac Hotel, Floridian Hotel, Burnett's Stationery Store, Blackstone Hotel or any member of the committee. • Kosher Butchers Begin Campaign The kosher butchers of Miami Beach held an interesting meeting last Monday night at which conditions affecting the business were discussed. Plans for the strict observance of the principles of the organization were discussed. These include strict observance of kosher laws and regulations, strict sanitation of all stores, fair dealing and courteous treatment of customers and a campaign of education to acquaint the public with the benefits of purchasing from Jewish butchers. This educational campaign will include the publication of suggested menus for the Jewish home and the proper preparation of foods in accordance with Jewish dietary regulations. Rabbis of this area will be invited to address the butchers at a series of meetings that are being planned. Building for tike JrnifTLire Much of the existence of the Jewish people, despite persecution, pogroms, auto-da-fes, Hamans and Hitlers, is the wise planning of our forefathers for the future generations. We, too, can do our share towards the perpetuating of our people. And while thus preparing for the future insure the well being of the present. Miami needs and must have a community center where its Jewish boys and girls may meet and receive their training as Jews and Jewesses in clean and wholesome surroundings. Though we in Miami have until now liked to talk about it, we have done very little towards the realization of this goal. Sunday midnight, January 19th, the Young Men's Hebrew Association is staging a gala show at the Olympia Theatre for the sole and only purpose of raising funds towards the erection of a community center ... a building for your child and my child. NOW IS THE TIME TO ACT BUY YOUR TICKET NOW ... and thus bring nearer the realization of that sought-after and much desired .. necessary BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE. Welfare Bureau Asks for Funds Inaugurating the campaign for the Jewish Welfare Bureau membership drive, members of the Big Gifts committee have been making a canvass of the city during the past week preparatory to the general drive which will begin next Monday. On the Big Gifts committee are Elry Stone, general chairman; M. J. Kopelowitz, secretary; Harry Markowitz, H. I. Lipton, Baron de Hirsch Meyer, Leo Ackerman, J. Gerald Lewis, I. Levin, Benjamin 'LeVine, M. L. Marcus, Stanley C. Myers and Mark Max. The general drive will begin with a luncheon meeting at the Palatial Kosher restaurant, Monday, January 20th, at 12:15 p. m., when members of the drive teams will receive final instructions. Luncheon meetings will be held daily and will take one hour part of which time will be devoted to daily reports of the progress of the campaign. Members of B'nai B'rith are urged to report to Mr. Elry Stone in the Congress building to devote several hours during the week of the campaign for solicitation of members. The Third Annual Conference of Jewish Welfare Agencies in the Southern Region, will be held in Montgomery, Ala., on Sunday and Monday, February 21! and 24, 1986. West Flagler Track to Open The West Flagler Kennel Club, Miami's popular downtown greyhound racing plant, opens its 19351936 racing season Tuesday night, January 21, with the presentation program featuring some of the, of an all-star 11-race inaugural fastest dogs in America. This well-known racing center, which holds all Florida records i for attendance and amount of' money wagered, has been thor| oughly renovated and refurbished during the last few weeks under the personal supervision of Jake Sher and Bill Huntley, prominent Miamians, owners and operators, and is ready to entertain a record | breaking crowd at the gala opening. Racing Secretary Tom Benner has bracketed 11 strong fields for the opener, featuring the Flagler Inaugural, which offers one of the greatest cards ever to go to the box on the first night of a local program. Although the great number of greyhounds kenneled j at West Flagler—541 dogs—permits of a highly diversified racj ing schedule, by far the larger' portion are hounds with national and international reputations. Twelve of the fleetest dogs at the track have been thoroughly schooled for the feature Inaugural at 5/16 of a mile from which eight will be chosen at the last moment to face the starter. Included in this group of hand picked streamlined windburners are: Speedy Lad, Fred Whitehead's sensational performer out of Kitty Dunn by My Laddie, whose breeding precludes his being anything but a great dog, and Red Whisk, a half brother that won popular acclaim at West Flagler last season and the championship at Atlantic City last summer. Mannie Gates and his orchestra, Miami's own top musical organization, which for the past two weeks has been playing on Ben Bernie's nationwide broadcast while all the lads of the Ol* Maestro' took a breather, will supply the music for the canines' march to the post. Tom Sweeney, who grabbed himself not a little fame relieving Bill Munday at the mike on the nationwide broadcast of the Catholic U-Ol' Miss football classic at .Miami New Year's Day, will do the announcing at the track as well as handle the mike for the regular track broadcast each niht over WIOD. Dr. Wise Depicts World Picture American Conference Date Changed to Pleatse British Delegation. London (WNS-Palcor Agency)— The National Conference on Palestine, which was to have been convened by American Jewry on February 8th and 9th will be held instead on February 1st and 2nd in order to accommodate the delegation of three distinguished British-Jewish leaders who are leaving AT LUNCHEON HONORING DR. STEPHEN S. WISE From left to right: Sam Simonhoff, general chairman of the committee; E. Markson of Boston, H. 0. Feibelman, president of Temple Israel; Dr. Stephen S. Wise, Rabbi Dr. Jacob H. Kaplan, Day J. Apte, Mrs. Stephen S. Wise and "Pop" Jacobs of The Alamac Hotel. Temple Israel was packed to capacity Wednesday night when Jews and non-Jews thronged to hear Dr. Stephen S. Wise deliver an address on "The World Jewish Scene." Dr. Wise was introduced by Rab. bi Jacob H. Kaplan, following an introductory address by Mr. Herbert U. Feibelman, president of the Temple. Dr. Wise began with describing conditions in Soviet Russia and summed it up "While the body is safe, the souls of Jews are not free in Soviet Russia." Dr. Wise continued his address by describing conditions in Roumania, the pitiful plight of starving Jews in Poland, Galicia and other European countries. He waxed eloquent in telling of Hitler atrocities and appealed to the Christian world to aid in the fight against Hitlerism because "the Jews are merely in the front ranks of the skirmishes today we're doing the fighting the real battle is not against the Jews it is against Christianity and against every form of religion." A thunderous ovation was given the speaker when he appealed to every American to boycott the Olympic games. "It will be a moral disaster for our boys and girls to expose them to Hitleristic poisons." "I predict that our country and our government will do more than they have yet done," Rabbi Wise said in talking of President Roosevelt's denunciations of dictators and oligarchies in Europe. "I do not believe that Nazi Germany will remain unchallenged by civilization any longer," continued the speaker. The speaker urged a boycott of German made goods and prayed for the time when Germany would be returned to its people and its former status as a civilized country. In the afternoon Rabbi Wise was guest of honor at a luncheon in the Alamac Hotel, when he spoke intimately regarding Jewish affairs and pled with his audience for cooperation in the work of the American Jewish congress and the Palestine appeal. Mr. Sam Simonhoff presided. Mr. Herbert U. Feibelman and Rabbi Dr. Jacob H. Kaplan spoke preceding Dr. Wise. Mr. Harry Simonhoff announced that a drive for the United Palestine Appeal would begin some time next month and that Mr. Markson of Boston, Mass., contributed $400 to the Jewish National Fund conditioned upon an additional $600 be raised for the Elihu Stone Forest in Palestine. The gift was announced as honoring Dr. Wise's visit to Miami. next week for the United States to discuss plans for the solution of the German-Jewish problem, it was re. ported here. Simon Marks, Zionist philanthropist and financier, Sir Herbert Samuel and Lord Bearsted are said to have accepted the invitation to participate in the Washington Conference? which is designed to mobilize American Jewry's support for large scale action in facilitating German-Jewish emigration to Palestine. They have agreed to speak at the Conference on Sunday, February 2nd.

I recall the days before I traded Bach in for Berlin, appearing at Carnegie Hall as a very young .Maestro and being hailed by that %  institution's venerable attaches as a "boy prodigy." Ah, me. I soon discovered my 'hair wouldn't grow long enough for the concert stage, so it was Marcus Loew and vaudeville at $26 per week. There was that momentous instant during my first out-of-town theater date in a small West Virginia mining village when a rough miner in the gallery, displeased by my artistic efforts, ahem, precipitated a huge wad of chewing tobacco and a full mouth| ful of tobacco juice right square | onto my "finger" hand right in the middle of a sonata. To the good old days may they never return.

Playing golf for fifty consecutive mornings with the Duke of Manchester and England's jass king, Jack Hylton, is another pleasand memory, I didn't win a single game, not because my golf is bad. mindyou. but simply for fear of disturbing the entente cordiale between our two countries.

Jews do not need to be urged to help their fellow men, women and children when they are in need. It is only that so many of our Jews cannot be ordinarily reached that causes them to forget. Members of the local B'nai H'rith Lodge, as true sons of the Covenant, have assumed a task pleasant and honorable ... of reaching their fellow Jews throughout this area NOT FOR THEMSELVES NOT BECAUSE THEY SEEK GLORY AND HONOR ... but for the purpose of enabling every Jew to DO HIS SHARE FOR THE POOR AND THE UNFORTUNATE. Monday these representatives will approach you for your contribution for the Jewish Welfare Bureau JEWS WHO KNOW WHAT SUFFERING MEANS POSSESSED OF HUMAN, PULSATING HEARTS THROBBING IN UNISON AND SYMPATHY WITH THEIR LESS FORTUNATE BRETHREN these Jews of Greater Miami, these tourists who come to sunnv, balmv Miami. ALL WILL .. ALL MUST GIVE. GIVE, and GIVE until their own consciences will have been satisfied and their souls be content and happy that "WE. TOO, HAVE SHARED!" Think, Work and Smile Jacob II. Kaplan, Ph.D. The Most Important (iroup in Jewish Life. Of course it is the Reform Jewish group! Not knowing anything about other Jewish groups, the Reform Jew hasn't any doubt about it. The reform Jew is the inheritor of all the traditions of the Past, and he has adjusted his religious outlook and practice to the needs of the times. He is modern, he is a man among men; he is proud of his Judaism and of the part the Jews played in the History of the World, of his contribution to the religious thought of the world. The Jew in his Temple is not ashamed of the dignity of his worship, of decorum at services, of the scholarly attainments of his Rabbi, and of the fine religious Sunday School from which the children bring home stories of heroes, poets, philosophers and glorious past achievement. "But," says the Orthodox, "not so fast, please. I grant you that without Reform or Liberal Judaism there would be no progress in religious life, as you so often put it, but without orthodox Judaism there would be no Judaism at all. Our children are the only ones who really study the holy tongue, and can read the Bible in the beautiful Hebrew language in which it was written. We keep Kosher in our homes, which is a bond of union among all Jews. We may not have the order and decorum which you have but we have socialibility even during the services. We don't let the rabbi or cantor pray for us. We all pray with the reader. We catch the spirit of Judaism by living according to Jewish traditional modes of life." "You, talk about Jewish life I You don't keep the Sabbath any better than we do," says the Reform Jew. "But," answers the orthodox, "that may be true, but we at least have an aching heart when we keep our business open on the Sabbath, while you have already forgotten that there ever was anything holy and sacred about the Sabbath." A third Jew listening to the argument enters into the discussion at this point with the remark, "you may both be right, but the real interest of the Jews is Palestine. That is the symbol of Jewish nationality, and whether one is orthodox or reform means nothing. To be a nationalist embraces all your individual ideas. You need not be anything of a religious designation as long as you belong Synagogue Announcements At the late Friday night services tonight Rabbi Julius Washer will speak on "The Power of the Spirit" at the Miami Jewish orthodox Congregation. Cantor A. Tei. telbaum will chant the services and lead the congregational singing. A social hour will follow. • • • At late Friday night services of Beth David Congregation Mr. Harry H. Goebel, honorary president of the Young People's League of the United Synagogue of America, and a member of the executive board of the United Synagogue, will speak on "I-et Us Understand Each Other." Cantor Nathan Wroobel will chant the services and lead the congregational singing, assisted by Beth David Choir. Rabbi David I. Rosenbloom will speak at the late Friday evening services at Beth Jacob Congregation tonight on Sinclair Lewis' book, ""It Can't Happen Here." Cantor Maurice Mamches will conduct the chanting and congregational singing. Saturday morning Arnold Flome, son of Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Flome. will be Bar MitZvah. He will recite the Haftoro and speak briefly. Rabbi E. L. Rosenbloom, father of Rabbi Rosenbloom, will be guest speaker Saturday afternoon. to the Jewish people, and help to build up a Jewish home land, that is all that is necessary. Whether you are Reform or Orthodox, if you are not a nationalist, you are not a part of the Jewish people. And that's that." "Suppose we both say you are right, which you are not, we ask you: "what kind of a nationalist must one be to be a good Jew ? A Mizrachi? One who believes in siliit observance of all the laws and customs of Israel? Or a Poale Zionist? One who docs not believe in any of the old forms of Jewish life? Or can one be a good Jew by merely being a good Zionist and remaining true to Reform Judaism or Orthodox Judaism? You see, it is not as simple as you seem to think." "Personally," says the Reform Jew, "I think that Reform Judaism has the most important group in Jewish life because we have a clear cut program, and we know what we stand for, namely we are Americans by nationality, and Jews by religion. And that is all there is to it." "Well," says the Orthodox Jew, "we are just as good Americans as you are, and are Jews by religion but our religion and your religion is not the same." In Loving Memory of URIAH DAVID SHOCHET whose loving deeds will always remain an everlasting memory. DIED 20TH DAY OF TEBBT, 5677 JANUARY 14, 1917 His Brothers and Sisters MIAMI NOTES By HARRY SCHWARTZ In honoring the presence of so eminent a speaker as Rabbi Stephen Wise of New York, who spoke Wednesday night at the Temple Israel the Men's division cancelled their usual Wednesday meeting and held a joint meeting with the Women's (iroup, Tuesday, that proved a real success, judging from the huge gathering and the enthusiasm shown by all those in attendance. Speaking of variety which is the spice of life, it gladdens my heart to again review the list of stars that you fortunate ticket holders will gaze upon at the midnite show at the Olympia Theater, Sunday, January 19.

New York, have been spending their honeymoon in Miami as the guests of Mr. and Mrs. Hy Schwartz and they're still happy.
