Occasional Jews, Only!
Last Wednesday Judge Willam Lewis, one of the out-
standing Jewish figures of this country, was invited to ad-
dress a luncheon meeting for the purpose of meeting the
Jewish lawyers, dentists, doctors and the other professional
men of Greater Miami. It was for the purpose of hearing
him outline conditions affecting Jewry throughout the world
in the interest of the joint appeal for Palestine and the Joint
Distribution Committee. Invitations were issued to more
than one hundred and twenty-five comprising but a portion
of the professional Jewish life of this area.
Judge Lewis arrived, he spoke feelingly and splendidly.
Hut only ten lawyers, and fourteen others, several of
whom were business men, appeared.
We cannot help but agree with one of the speakers, who
termed the absentees as "occasional Jews," those who be-
came such when they needed a favor when they were
candidates for office ... or when they espoused the cause of
It is about time that the Jewish community forced these
colorless individuals particularly the professional man,
who ought to know and do his duty, at least by appearing .
to realize that it would not tolerate them Only those may
be termed Jews who by their acts are Jews One must be-
come identified with the work of the Jewish community or
forfeit his right to recognition as a Jew.
It is not yet too late we sincerely hope that the Jews
who have been honored by call to a profession will realize
their duty and, realizing that duty perform it.
By JACOB H. KAPLAN, Ph. I).
Why Question Hotels?
"Why do you go after the hotels?" was a question pro-
pounded to me the other day by a gentleman who is sincere
in his attempt to do the right thing. "Are there not others
v ho are violating Jewish laws kashrus and other things
. why single them out?"
It is a question that deserves a reply. At the outset let
it be definitely understood that the Jewish Floridian does
not set itself up as the mentor or guide of one's morals. It
does accept the duty synonymous with those of a decent and
self-respecting Jewish publication. Whether a hotel cater-
ing to the people proposes to conduct itself as kosher or not
does not in the least concern us. But when a Jewish hotel
advertises or holds itself out to the public as "kosher" or
'dietary laws observed," and in that manner deliberately de-
ceives its patrons who are paying and paying plentifully for
that "kashrus," that does concern us and when that hotel
knowingly and willfully purchases non-kosher meats for the
purpose of defrauding their patrons religion is no longer
involved. It becomes a simple matter of honesty. The
Supreme Court of the United States, in upholding the kosher
laws of the state of New York, definitely placed this question
"not as a matter of religion, but as a matter of common
In all fairness a questionnaire was submitted to every
hotel at Miami Beach, which would disclose, if properly and
fully answered, the real truth of the matter.
Answers were received from every hotel but Hotel Hel-
cne, Mayflower Hotel, Bitter's Hotel, Luber's London Arms
Hotel, Nemo Hotel and the Belvedere Hotel. These hotels
cannot face the truth or thev would have replied.
MR. HELLER OF THE HELENE HOTEL DEFINITE-
LY TELLS US THAT IT IS NONE OF OUR BUSINESS TO
INQUIRE. WE NOW PUBLICLY ASK OF MR. HELLER:
IS IT TRUE THAT YOU PURCHASE YOUR MEATS FROM
LOCAL PROVISION HOUSES, WHO SELL NOTHING
BUT TREIFAH MEATS? IS IT NOT ALSO TRUE THAT
We do not know why we are
horn, nor how, nor what is the
meaning of life. We do not know
what is life. We do not appreciate
the god that is in us when two
human beings in ecstasy become
the authors of a human being, a
complete, most wonderful, perfect
human babe. Countless cells,
nerves, muscle g, organs, glands
so adjusted and integrated as to
i. able t< function as human be-
ing, thinking, feeling, digesting,
self-regulating. None of these
things we know, nor understand,
or even think about, and yet I was
thinking lately whether we believe
in (iod, or only make believe, or
just don't think and don't care.
The feeding of the body takes
up so much time, and the pamper-
ing of the body wants and spirit
wants engage us so completely that
we probably never really think of
the inter-relations of God and man.
The story is told that a very
rich Jew wanted to get a brilliant
student for a son-in-law (the great-
est honor that can come to a rich
Jew), and so he went to a re-
nowned Yeshiba, college, and asked
the president for a young man to
marry his daughter. He explained
how rich he is and that he wants
the brightest student in the school.
The president recommended his
finest scholar, and the couple in
due time were married.
After a few months the rich fa-
ther returns to the college and tells
the president that the young man
he recommended as son-in-law is
not as brilliant as he is supposed
to be; in fact, he is insane.
"Inseiie!" cried vhe president.
"Why, he is the finest student I
ever had at this Yeshiba. this col-
lege! What makes you say he is
Insane?" "Why, my dear presi-
dent, he sits up every night and
reads the Psalms.
"My dear sir, is that the reason
you consider him insane ? I read
the Psalms every night myself,
and I am not insane."
"Yes," said the rich man, "you
read the Psalms and thus you make
a living, but that boy, he does not
need it any more, he is really sin-
cere about it!"
And so it happens that many of
us now think that when the rabbi
speaks about God he is doing that
because he makes his living that
way. When, however, a man does
not make his living that way, there
is no need to talk any more about
I have been thinking lately
whether it may not be, after all,
a fact that the Jews have been
given a gnat task to perform, the
Torah to learn and to teach, and
to practice, and that all the suf-
fering of Israel may be due to the
[act that we do not take seriously
the commission which God has en-
trusted unto us.
We talk and talk, and plan, and
execute, and find our little niche
in the world's work, and feel for
a time that all is well because food
and raiment are in abundance, an 1
we even gain the respect and ad-
miration of our fellow men. And
YET, I tremble to say it, and YET,
may it not. be that God is in ear-
nest with us, that we must not
forget the meaning of OUR life
and the work for which we have

come a priest people and a holy na-

of our professors used to ridicule
the idea that the Jews could ever
get the sultan's consent to occupy
Palestine, even as many of our
.lews ridicule the fact that We are
Jews by religion. The whole busi-
ness of religion is meaningless to
many of our people. PERHAPS
we are reminded in providential
ways that we must NEVER forget
our work of studying and observ-
ing the Torah, to the end that we
become a priest people and a holy
nation. PERHAPS we suffer in
undreamed-of ways because God
really wants us to pay attention
to what HIS work is on earth, and
not to forget it.
PERHAPS God is in earnest
with us Jews. Perhaps these peo-
ples who oppress us are the in-
struments in God's hands to re-
mind us, and stir us up not so
much for self-protection as for self-
PERHAPS God really means
that we are not to fail nor be dis-

critics say it will ... I wonder if
Leslie and Burte got their inspira-
tion for "Moon Over Miami" while
on the Marine Bar at the Florid-
ian, it sure am a pretty spot to
take your best i:;il ... I wonder
where Hitler will go when he dies.
(And pray God that it will be

Jessel will find another hit like
the "Jazz Singer" ... I wonder
when Lou Holtz will forget his

. I wonder what's in back of
Mrs. McLean being llauptmann's

what David J. Wilentz thinks aboul
it ... I wonder what Sir Charles
lligham, noted publicist and ad-
vertising director of London, Eng-
land, really thinks about our bal-

wonder what Abraham Lincoln
would think about, if it was pos-
sible for him to send us a message,
and I wonder how he likes the late
Will Hogers, I bet they are great

Henry Ford would say if he were
poor these days And I wonder
why people get sunburn when they
can go to Berry Collins' Solariums
and get a swell tan and avoid all

Franklin D. Roosevelt had for
breakfast today, and if he is wor-
ried about the coming election .
I wonder what Damon Kunyon was
thinking about last night walking
down Flagfler st. with his very
beautiful wife ... I wonder who
is Harry Richman's new heart
throb this season ... I wonder how
long it would take to start at the
north side of Carter's bar and fin-
ish at the south side of the bar
and take a drink at every seat .
I wonder what Satch and Satchel.
at the Pavilion Club, on the Mil-

they give you their famous dance
(the Stuff is here) ... I wonder if
