Cries of distress are reaching us from Germany, Poland and other lands where Jews
are being prosecuted.
In Germany our people are being victimized and degraded by the savage Nazi Gov-
In Poland economic conditions, coupled with Polish hostility, are reducing Jews to a
state of blackest despair.
The Jewish people in those lands are appealing to us in America to save them from
humiliation, hunger and degradation.
We are in the midst of the United Jewish Campaign and are endeavoring to raise in
Greater Miami a quota of only $15,000. Every Jew in Miami should contribute to this
cause, in fairness and self-respect.
We maintain an office at 407 Congress Building, Miami, Florida, to help accomplish
the realization of the funds needed. Our telephone is 2-3287.
Please do not delay. Act immediately! Send us a donation! Make your checks pay-
able either to I'nited Jewish Campaign or to D. J. Apte, treasurer.
Rather novel in its approach to an important factor in
Jewish life, and expressing a viewpoint that is refreshing, is
that disclosed in the following editorial appearing in last
week's issue of "Every Friday" of Cincinnati, Ohio:
KOSHER MEAT FOR NON-OBSERVERS"
We were very much surprised recently when a
certain member of our Jewish community who hap-
pens to be an agnostic and who has long since ceased
to observe most of the Jewish traditions, confessed
to us that about six months ago he and his wife de-
cided that they would again use strictly kosher meat
in their home. His reasons for returning to the
use cf kosher meats are interesting, and we want
to repeat them here. "My wife and I feel," he said
to us, "that it is our duty as members of the Jewish
community to insist upon buying kosher meat just
as much as it is our duty to refrain from buying
(ierman goods." And he continued: "I refrain from
buying (ierman goods not only because I hope that
the boycott will force the Nazis to change their at-
titude and treatment of my fellow Jews in Germany,
but also because it is one of the ways that I can
give active expression to my solidarity with my per-
secuted brethren in Naziland. And so since the
Nazis have prohibited 'Shechita,' thus denying to
the German Jews the use of kosher meats, I feel
that by using kosher meat here, where that privi-
lege is not denied to us, I am giving more concrete
evidence of my solidarity and further express my
sympathy for those of my people who are less fortu.
nate than I am. Now that Poland is attempting to
pass a law prohibiting 'Shechitah' I am more con-
vinced than ever that those of us who are still proud
of our Jewishness should by all means insist upon
kosher meats in our homes. It is not because of
any religious scruples that I feel this duty. First
of all, I feel that by utilizing the privileges that I
may enjoy as a Jew and as a citizen in this country
I experience a sense of greater freedom. Then
again, I feel that by showing this solidarity with my
less fortunate brethren, my Gentile neighbors who
recognize my rights as a Jew, will respect me much
more for it."
All we can add is to express our hope that more
of ou)r non-observant Jews will follow the above

Aufbau, the monthly magazine of

we gather that German Jewish im-

there are snubbing them. And
the German Jews, accustomed for
generations to assuming a haughty
superiority toward their Polish and
Russian brethren, aren't enjoying
this turning of the tables. .

The "Y" tendered its board of
directors a dinner Wednesday at
the Palatial Restaurant celebrating
the increased membership of its
organization, as well as the suc-
cessful sponsoring of many out-
standing social events. The high
spot of the evening was the re-
newal of the contract for our ex-
ecutive director, Boris Schlachman.
Took my first visit to Hollywood
Sunday to witness Eddie Cantor's
Pebeco broadcast from the Holly-
wood Beach Hotel. Many out-
standing stars of radio, stage and
screen were present, including
Nancy Carroll, Bette Davis, Geor-
gie Price, Ben Blue and many oth-
ers too numerous to mention.
Jimmy Wallingford presided as
M. C, aiding and abetting Eddie
vocally as well as making the nec-
essary announcements. Parkya-
karkas was a lot of fun with his
Greek dialect and humor. Parkya-
karkas' real cognomen is Harry
Einstein. Eddie is spending a
month in Hollywood and we have
favorable possibilities of obtaining
his presence at a future affair of
ours. Possibly at our proposed
bazaar and dance.
Congratulations to the Y. \Y. on
their successful Iieap Year dance.
It did the boys" hearts as well as
pockets good to see the ladies dish
out the gelt for the fellows' drinks
and sandwiches. After all, it will
be all of four years before this
will occur again. Many of the
girls relished the opportunity of
doing the breaking, as it gave
them an opportunity to snub a few
of the boys who had snubbed them
on previous occasions.
Splendid entertainment was fur-
nished by Charles Derman of New
York, who sang a snappy ditty en-
titled "Searching for a Little Sun,"
dedicated to Eddie Cantor, and then
there was Cal and Danny, who
danced themselves into the hearts
of all present by their mastery of
the most intricate steps; Milton
Friedman, who was scheduled to
sing, was unable to as he sprained
his ankle playing hide and go seek
with Betty. First priee in the
dance contest held was awarded to
Herman Garfinkle of good ole Chi-
cago and his partner, Elsie Wein-
traub of Atlantic City.
More than 300 women attended
the bridge tea sponsored by the
senior chapter of Hadassah Mon-
day afternoon at the Mayflower
Hotel, with Mrs. A. F. Friedman
in charge of arrangements, and
Mis. Ben London assisting.
Mrs. Friedman presented each of
her committee with shoulder cor-
sages of roses in appreciation of
their co-operation, who were Mrs.
Leonard Finn, Mrs. Barney Wein-
kle, Mrs. Jack Stone, Mrs. Ben
Margolius, Mrs. A. M. Reder, Mrs.

Mrs. Albert Rosenthal, Mrs. Beu-

Mrs. Arthur Lavine entertained
Mrs. David de Sola Pool Monday
afternoon with a sailing party on
the yacht Betsy the Third for the

in, Mrs. D. Risman, Mrs. Max Do-
brin, Mrs. Harry Orlin, Mrs. Moses
Kreiger, Mrs. Morris Rubin, Mrs.

The matter has been referred to
the Union of Orthodox Congrega-

we doubt not that their action will
help clear up this matter once and
for all in accordance with roles of
honesty and sincerity.

action under an ordinance which
covers this and similar situations
enacted unanimously several years

recently taken definite action to re-
