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.

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

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
The speaker urged a boycott of
German made goods and prayed for
the time when Germany would be

mer status as a civilized country.

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

Jacob II. Kaplan, Ph.D.
The Most Important (iroup in Jew-
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
"You, talk about Jewish life I
You don't keep the Sabbath any
better than we do," says the Re-
"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
At the late Friday night serv-
ices tonight Rabbi Julius Washer
will speak on "The Power of the
Spirit" at the Miami Jewish ortho-
dox 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. Har-
ry 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, as-
sisted by Beth David Choir.
Rabbi David I. Rosenbloom will
speak at the late Friday evening
services at Beth Jacob Congrega-
tion tonight on Sinclair Lewis'
book, ""It Can't Happen Here."
Cantor Maurice Mamches will con-
duct the chanting and congrega-
tional singing. Saturday morning
Arnold Flome, son of Mr. and Mrs.
Nathan Flome. will be Bar MitZ-
vah. He will recite the Haftoro
and speak briefly. Rabbi E. L.
Rosenbloom, father of Rabbi Ros-
enbloom, will be guest speaker Sat-
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."

A DEPARTMENT IN BIRDINKS LINCOLN ROAD 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-

scendant Cherokee Indian. She
may not sing an Indian pow wow,
but she can put across any num-
ber that you may want to hear .
Jimmy Crossan, well known pro,
seemed to get a great kick out of
hearing Honey and Vick sing "The
Music (Joes 'Hound and "Hound,"
so many times that I even felt as
though I was going 'round and
'round. He sure and hear Phil, the
inging bartender, at Curley's

what it takes. For service with a
smile, say hello to Al Goldman of
