Weizman Leaves Traditional (?)
For Conference
Now that the little dust of con-
roversy raised by me some weeks
go has been laid 1 should like *.o
avite the readers of this page (es-
ecially the "leftists") to consider
ertain reflections on the relations
.f the Jew to liberty and to the
tate. I was accused, by the way,
f saying that Jews had no right
3 be Communists. I never said it;
never thought it. Any man has
he abstract right to embrace any
octrine. That is a perfectly true
tatement and in that form a rath-
r sterile one. 1 said and thought
hat it waa unwise and dangerous
or Jews to lie Communists. My
rgumenta on my own ground were
ever met. But I did not expect
hat. Shifting the ground of an
rgument is a common method of
jntroversy. When you have done
:tat ypd have the happy feeling of
Annihilated your opponent,
in iact, you have avoided
im. Let us try to avoid contro-
eray and think.
Jerusalem (WNS-Palcor Agency)
The World Council for German
Jewry, a small committee to co-
ordinate plans for the emigration
of 100,000 German Jews during the
next four years, has already been
formed, the Palcor Agency learned
just before Dr. Chaim Weizmann,
president of the Jewish Agency for
Palestine, left for London. The
council, purposely small in order
to be effective in carrying out a
large scale program, will consist
of four Zionists and four non-Zion-
ists. The seven members whose
names are already available include
Dr. Weixmann, Felix M. Warburg
and Dr. Stephen S. Wise of New
York, Ix>rd Bearsted, Simon Marks,
Osmond d'Avigdor Goldsmid and
Sir Herbert Samuel, chairman.
The four latter are of London. It
is believed that the eighth place is
being left open for another Zionist
of America, who is yet to be
named.
Observance
Con. Dickstein
Arrives Here
r and thi
One of the things that very in-
.'llirent people, Gentiles as well
s Jews, object to in America to-
ay i> the indoctrination of chil-
ren in the public schools with a
rimitive, warlike and barbaric pa-
riotism. The bitter controversy
lat has recently taken place over
le enforced teachers' loyalty oath
, part of the same miserable busi-
ess. With this entire controversy,
lark you, Jews had little or noth-
lg to do. American libertarians
ere and are resisting the tend-
ncy inherent in every state to re-
uce its Citizens to the status of
ubjecta by turning them into uni-
>rmly thinking and functioning
jbots. Please remember that we
ave no record of any state or
Utte power that did not or does
ot have this tenedency to put peo.
le into mental and physical uni-
>rms. In so far as it succeeds
vilization slips hack by just that
teasure into barbarism. In so
\x as it fails, civilization ad-
ances. Now the virtue of a dem-
:ratic society is this, that citizens
in resist the state's encroach-
ients on their liberties. Thus in-
dligent American parents can
>unteradt the teachings of the
:hools in the home. No one spies
pon them; their children are not
inght by professional state slaves

tey can pretty effectively pass on
teir ideals to their children in
)lte of the schools. They can do
itter. They can gather in groups
! their own and establish private
hools to their liking, schools
atholic or Jewish, progressive or
idkal, schools in which through

Congressman Samuel Dickstein
of New York, active in the uncov-
ering of Nazi activities in the
United States, and leader in con-
gress for human immigration laws
permitting families to be united
in this country, arrived here last
night for a ten days' vacation. He
was appointed one of the arbitra-
tors in the elevator strike in New
York this week. While here he
will be the guest of the Hotel
Evans at Tenth and Collins ave.,
Miami Beach.
Inter-Faith
Move
Urged
Boston (N. C. J. C.)Creation
of a worldwide inter-faith move-
ment of Catholics, Protestants and
Jews to work for the solution of
problems in the social, economic
and religious realm was urged this
week by Bishop Charles Wesley
Burns of the Metrodist Episcopal
Church.
The suggestion was contained in
a letter sent by Bishop Burns to
the second "good will" banquet and
meeting held by the Brotherhood
of Temple Chabei Shalom, Brook-
line, Mass. Illness prevented
! Bishop Burns from attending.
"Something more definite should
' grow out of such a meeting as this
; than the mere expression of good
will," the letter read. "Why could
not all the Brotherhoods of the sev-
eral denominations and sects have
a central council, or some frame-
work of the sort that would en-
gage the several brotherhoods in
an active, united, city-wide, state-
wide, nation and worldwide move-
ment in the social, economic and
religious realm? There is plenty
to do for all of us. Separately, we
are doing well. United, we should
be invincible."
We could not help but look
aghast when we came across an
advertisement in Wednesday's
Miami Daily News advertising a
"PI RIM PARTY.," a traditional
holiday, observed at Kitter's Hotel,
Miami Beach, in the same adver-
tisement also urging the public to
make reservations for Passover.
So that our good readers may
not forget, Hitter's Hotel is one
of the six who have ignored every
effort to have them tell the public
why it is that they continue to de-
ceive the public in telling all that
they are "kosher" hotels. And so
thai even Hitter's might know they
are not fooling everyone, we sug-
gest that simply running a pencil
through a sales slip showing they
had bought "treifah" veal and lamb
at a wholesaler's and charging it to
another name will not help them.
As late as last Monday, quite de-
lectable veal, lamb fores and lamb
racks were purchased and used by
Hitter's from Armour's meat de-
partment, where everything is def-
initely "treifah." Of course, we
presume that the purchase of these
non-kosher foods will help in the
"traditional holiday" observance.
And it will also aid greatly in hav-
ing a real Passover, when a "mem-
orable holiday" will be traditional-
ly observed.
We feel that the fight we have
directed against Hitter's Hotel.
Helen Hotel, with Mr. Joseph Hel-
ler as its directing genius; London
Arms Hotel, with the famous actor
and producer, Mr. Luber, at its
head; the Mayflower Hotel, with
.Mr. Max (irossman as its respon-
sible director; the Nemo Hotel,
with that paragon of virtue and
kashrus, Mr. Dave Drosnes of Long
Keach presumably responsible for
dietary observance, and the Bel-
vedere Hotel, will not be in vain.
The letters we have received, and
the approval given us by leading
Jewish and non-Jewish citizens in
this fight have shown us that when
awakened, the community will do
its utmost to prevent deception.
The matter will soon Im- out of
our hands. The proper authorities
in Jewish religious life of this
country have signified their inten-
tion to lend their every effort and
energy to let the entire Jewish
world know of the actions of Miami
Beach hotel keepers referred to.
We feel, we know, that these ho-
tel men who, by their acts, have
brought opprobrium to the Jewish
name, will, when next year comes
around, look at their depleted guest
lists and then realize that "hon-
esty is the best policy."

tion will entertain a large num-

Jewish Doctors
To Hold Meeting
Jerusalem (WNS-Palcor Agen-
cy)The Palestine Committee of
the World Congress of Jewish
Physicians has now been organized
and has decided to hold its first
meeting in Tel Aviv from April 27
to 29, 1936. The position of Jew-
ish physicians and the medical pro-
fession in the world, the present
and future of medical education
among Jews, the establishment of
a World Union and an Internation-
al Jewish Health Bureau, various
health and hygiene questions
among Jews of Palestine and
abroad, racial questions and the
misconceptions introduced by the
Nazi teachings and other matters
are to be on the agenda.
National Farmers Open Convention
at Tel Aviv
Tel Aviv (WNS-Palcor Agency)
1 he place of Jewish labor in Pal-
estine agriculture was the central
theme at the opening here of a con-
ference of the National Farmers'
Union under the chairmanship of
Samuel Zuchovitzky. It was em-
phasized by the latter that the
union had split from the Jewish
Farmers' Federation, headed by
Moshe Smilansky, because the
union insisted that Jewish farmers
employ Jewish labor only. It was
announced that the union has 700
members and that it has a collec-
tive contract with the Histadruth
(Jewish Federation of Labor) for
the employment of workers. The
speakers at the first session de-
clared that an improvement in the
productivity of Jewish laborers on
the farm had been noted. Zuchov-
itzky announced that this week the
Jewish Agricultural Bank estab-
lished by the Jewish Agency would
begin extending loans for 15-year
periods. Isaac Gruenbaum spoke
to the conference on behalf of the
Jewish Agency, and Alexander
Goldstein on behalf of the Keren
Hayesod. Resolutions adopted in-
cluded: emphasis on the value of
Jewish labor in agriculture ; oppo-
sition to the Legislative Council
and the land restrictions proposals.
Catholic Baby Circumcised by Mis-
take. Mohel and Hospital Pay $400
New York (WNS)A case of
mistaken identity that resulted in
the circumcision of a Catholic baby
by a mohel has cost the mohel and
the hospital in which the rite was
performed $400. The baby was the
son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Lyman
of the Bronx. They sued Hyman
Budanz, mohel, and the Mount
Morris Park Sanitarium for $25,-
000 on the ground that their son,
Robert, who was born February
11th, 19.34, had been circumcised
without their permission. The hos-
pital and the mohel admitted the
charge, but argued that circumci-
sion did not make the baby a Jew.
The case was given a humorous
angle when it was tried before
Judge Bernard L. Sheintag, a Jew,
who found that the lawyer for the
Lymans was a Jew, while the attor-
ney for the hospital and the mohel
was a Catholic.
50th Anniversary

New York (WNS)Plans for
celebrating the 50th anniversaries

of America and Yeshiva College
are being made here. The semi-
nary anniversary will be observed
in the fall. No date has been set
for Yeshiva College's celebration.

Purim 5696
The Open
Window
(Continued from Page 1)
.
Purim, 5696, has another ring than in former years.
The carnival spirit is hushed. Even Palestine has cancelled
all boisterous official I'urim celebrations. Jewry al over
the world somehow cannot summon a joyous spirit. Dark
clouds over Central European countries, over East European
lands and over the Balkans throw their shadows. The dan-
ger of a world war is more imminent than ever. No wonder
(hat this I'urim will find our people pondering over the past
and thinking with a heavy heart of the future.
It is hardly exaggerated to say that notwithstanding the
wither dolorous panorama of Jewish life these days. Purim
u-i a Jewish holiday will be observed in the synagogues more
intensely than ever before. Religious life in this country,
f one is to belie.e the reports from rabbinical sources,
,aining in strength. Good will organizations are contributing
much to the synagOgal activities. There is undoubted!) it
tendency on the part of a large segment of American Jewry
to devote more attention and interest to the religious educa-
tion of our youth.
I'urim as a milestone in this Jewish year will stand out
i:;st because world Jewry is grimly determined to gather all
its strength and resources for constructive assistance to the
victims of political, economic and social persecution. There
are more fund-raising campaigns in this country than ever
before, and the leaders of these campaigns have little doubt
that their respective quotas will be attained. Thus I'urim
celebrated in the spirit of brotherly love will mark this year .,. what has happened! The anti-
a special, even if not joyous, occasion for Jewish gatherings Semites drive us back into folds
al' over the world. ,.t the Jewish people. The tragedy
is that these hated ones do not
the great force that keeps Jews even have the joy of knowing why
together. What a wonderful thing they are hated, and why they are
riety or multiformity of civilization
within which alonealone by the
teachinK of all experience and of
all historysocieties can creative-
ly lift themselves to a level that
.ittrits the name of human.
*
Now for ii variety of reasons
which, differently estimated by
different people, are mallei- of
common knowledge, there is a
tendency in this age in many c mn-
iies to make the power of the
ate absolute and the doctrine of-
. y held by the Btate co-exten-
sive with all truth. II was and is
from this point of view that I com-
nred Fascism and Communism
and declared them in practice to be
equally repugnant to any high civ-
lization. Now the Communists
ake their stand upon the content
of Communist doctrine It is an
admissable argument. It wish it
were admissable. I wish it were
sound. Truth would have been
found and the Meshiach would be
n our midst and there would be no
"liquidations" and no K. P. U. and
no prison camps. For the truth
the absolute and incomparable
nth would persuade all men by

And unless man has suddenly

all the totalitarian states will in

by a new brand of authoritarians

The system of establishing any

our own speeial reactions towai ;

Therefore the Gentile State has al-
w.... shown I .ward us two ten len
cies: the tendency to segregate and
destroy us and the tendency to ab-
sorb us. We do not, naturally, de-
sire to be destroyed. It is doubt-
ul whether we can be absorbed.
And ultimately in hard fact de-
struction and absorption come to
the same thing. Now tli so-Called
democratic state also ha- the tend-

make robots of it- citizens. But
just as all intelligent Americans
resist that robotizing tendency oi
their state, so American Jew- can
freely resist the tendencies of the
state to destroy or absorb them.
Therefore .lews must be libertarian

Why Not Commit Suicide?
Columnists
By JACOB II. KAPLAN. I'h. I).
The Jew is always right. In
what way'.' In every way. The
rabbi who dares to point nut the
faults and the indifference of the
Jew finds himself reviled, adorned
with all the vices which the anti-
Semite says the Jew possesses.
Anti-Semitism seen from the
Jewish point of view is line for
the Jew and bail for the world, as
seen from the world's point of
view.
One of the finest Christian his-
torians of Jewish life, whose book
I have read with great interest
years ago. and who writes a- sym-
pathetically and understanding^
as any Jewish writer could possibly
write, nevertheless has this to say
in his book, "Israel in Europe" (by
G. F. Abbott): "Anti-Semitism is
a movement retrogressive in a two-
fold sense. Retrogressive inas-
much as it shows that the current
of European humanism is flowing
backwards, and retrogressive inas-
much as it has actually checked
the gradual and voluntary assimi-
lation of the Jew." (The boldface |
is mine.)
were left alone they would commit at least wrap himself in his Tallith
suicide in a nice, pleasant way, by
assimilat ion.
Since our friends expect us to
commit suicide, why not commit'
suicide? This is a fair question,
why not ? When asked to do the
things that will help us to remain
Jews, Jews of dignity and culture.
we turn a deaf ear. Why not do
the other thing, deliberately, con-
scientiously and whole-heartedly
forget and remove ourselves from
the world scene? We are ashamed
id' Judaism as a religion, or as a
nationality; we know that we are
not a race. We have no liking for | remains open for him to be thrown
Jewish folk ways, for Jewish cere- back through it. How much more
mony, for Jewish worship, for Jew- dignified to walk out into the world
ish gatherings, for Sabbath ob- of science and art and culture as a
servance, for holidays observance; Jew and then return manfully, walk
ill short, we are human, and don't I back joyfully, not wait to be kicked
and Tefilin and look up to bis God
in ile-pair and prayer; the big fel-
,ew has no knowledge of Tallith
, Tefilin, and cannot lock Up to
his God, whom he has lost so many
ago. He ha- only himself
and his lost friends. Commit sui-
cide? Why, he cannot even do
that.
How can a whole people commit
BUicide? Some are not yet willing
to do that. And what good will it
do for a few to make their exit
through assimilation, when the
door won't shut behind him. and
want to be reminded that we are
Jews. If all the things we say of
each other were really true, we
would not be worth preserving; it
would be a blessing if we could
commit suicide.
How can we commit suicide?
Some tried to forget, to get out by
the way of indifference, by way of
baptism, by way of refusal to learn
and know anything worth while
In other words, anti-Semitism is [ about Jews and Judaism. And yet,
back like a runaway slave.
Religious people of all denomi-
nations sometimes forget the
meaning of their OWH religion, and
hold fast to the idea that religion
is sad and tear-stained. They and
we forget that religion is joy, and
oappiness, and self-fulfillment.
Only the observant Jew, the know-
ing Jew, the disciplined Jew, can
live a nutural life, and feel like a
MAN.

pink and white was carried out in
decorations, favors and the beau-
tiful eight-tiered birthday cake,
which was a work of art indeed.
Many friends thronged their home
all day and telegrams and mes-
sages were received from all over
the United States, which attested
to the love and esteed in which
Mrs. Rosenbaum is held. Mrs. Ros-
enbaum is a much loved person,
gracious, very cultured, charitable
to Jew and Gentile alike, and a
shining light of Judaism amongst
us. Her life is an inspiration to
all of us who know and love her.

Publication of an unusual book,
"The Message of Israel." edited
and compiled by Rabbi Israel H.
Weisfeld of Chicago, is announced
by the Bloch Publishing Company
of New York.
In this book 24 noted American
rabbis and scholars, representing
every shade of Jewish life, Chris-
tian-Jewish relations and the so-
cial economic and intellectual prob-
lems confronting American Jewry
and Judaism. Among those repre-
sented in this book are Doctors
Louis L. Mann, David de Sola Pool,
Louis I. Newman, Solomon B. Free-
hof, Morris S. Lazaron, Felix A.
Levy, Leo Jung, Israel H. Levin-
thai, A. E. Abramowitz, C. H. Kau-
var, Meyer Waxman, Israel Gold-
stein and Samuel S. Cohon.
Considerable Christian interest
has been manifested in this volume.
Typical is the following statement
l>y Dr. Paul Hutchinson, editor of
the Christian Century, in a letter
to Rabbi Weisfeld: "I am intense-
ly interested in the project for se-
curing an understanding between
the different schools of Jewish
thought. Your approach to the
problem is so original and the list
of contributors to your book so re-
markable, that 1 am sure it will be
given a wide reading."
Rabbi Weisfeld is rabbi of the
Agudath Achim North Shore Con-
gregation, secretary of the Chicago
Rabbinical Association, contributor
to the Jewish Encyclopedia of
Knowledge and other periodicals,
and formerly rabbi of Beth David
Congregation in Miami.

speare's "The Merchant of Venice"

nity that it would cause ill feeling.
Informed of the protests, State
Sen.lor Daly, state WPA admin-
istrator, ordered the Little Theatre
Guild to halt its rehearsals of the
Shakespeare work.

& Jewish IFIondi f iam i% COMBINING Title J*BWf$tl Unity H Vol. —No. 10 MIAMI, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, MARCH (i. 19:* Price Five Ceats Jewish News Around the World The World's Window 'The Jew and Liberty" By LUDWH; LKWISOHN This column is copyrighted by the Seven Arts Feature Syndicate. Reproduction in whole or in prt •trictly forbidden. Any infringement on this copyright will be prosecuted. Weizman Leaves Traditional (?) For Conference Now that the little dust of conroversy raised by me some weeks go has been laid 1 should like *.o avite the readers of this page (esecially the "leftists") to consider ertain reflections on the relations .f the Jew to liberty and to the tate. I was accused, by the way, f saying that Jews had no right 3 be Communists. I never said it; never thought it. Any man has he abstract right to embrace any octrine. That is a perfectly true tatement and in that form a rathr sterile one. 1 said and thought hat it waa unwise and dangerous or Jews to lie Communists. My rgumenta on my own ground were ever met. But I did not expect hat. Shifting the ground of an rgument is a common method of jntroversy. When you have done :tat ypd have the happy feeling of Annihilated your opponent, in iact, you have avoided im. Let us try to avoid controeray and think. Jerusalem (WNS-Palcor Agency) The World Council for German Jewry, a small committee to coordinate plans for the emigration of 100,000 German Jews during the next four years, has already been formed, the Palcor Agency learned just before Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, left for London. The council, purposely small in order to be effective in carrying out a large scale program, will consist of four Zionists and four non-Zionists. The seven members whose names are already available include Dr. Weixmann, Felix M. Warburg and Dr. Stephen S. Wise of New York, Ix>rd Bearsted, Simon Marks, Osmond d'Avigdor Goldsmid and Sir Herbert Samuel, chairman. The four latter are of London. It is believed that the eighth place is being left open for another Zionist of America, who is yet to be named. Observance Con. Dickstein Arrives Here r and thi One of the things that very in.'llirent people, Gentiles as well s Jews, object to in America toay i> the indoctrination of chilren in the public schools with a rimitive, warlike and barbaric pariotism. The bitter controversy lat has recently taken place over le enforced teachers' loyalty oath part of the same miserable busiess. With this entire controversy, lark you, Jews had little or nothlg to do. American libertarians ere and are resisting the tendncy inherent in every state to reuce its Citizens to the status of ubjecta by turning them into uni>rmly thinking and functioning jbots. Please remember that we ave no record of any state or Utte power that did not or does ot have this tenedency to put peo. le into mental and physical uni>rms. In so far as it succeeds vilization slips hack by just that teasure into barbarism. In so \x as it fails, civilization adances. Now the virtue of a dem:ratic society is this, that citizens in resist the state's encroachients on their liberties. Thus indligent American parents can >unteradt the teachings of the :hools in the home. No one spies pon them; their children are not inght by professional state slaves > inform against their parents; tey can pretty effectively pass on teir ideals to their children in )lte of the schools. They can do itter. They can gather in groups their own and establish private hools to their liking, schools atholic or Jewish, progressive or idkal, schools in which through *ir children men and women can '^He the highest that they ;K>W and thus preserve that va(Continueil on Page 3) Congressman Samuel Dickstein of New York, active in the uncovering of Nazi activities in the United States, and leader in congress for human immigration laws permitting families to be united in this country, arrived here last night for a ten days' vacation. He was appointed one of the arbitrators in the elevator strike in New York this week. While here he will be the guest of the Hotel Evans at Tenth and Collins ave., Miami Beach. Inter-Faith Move Urged Boston (N. C. J. C.)—Creation of a worldwide inter-faith movement of Catholics, Protestants and Jews to work for the solution of problems in the social, economic and religious realm was urged this week by Bishop Charles Wesley Burns of the Metrodist Episcopal Church. The suggestion was contained in a letter sent by Bishop Burns to the second "good will" banquet and meeting held by the Brotherhood of Temple Chabei Shalom, Brookline, Mass. Illness prevented Bishop Burns from attending. "Something more definite should grow out of such a meeting as this ; than the mere expression of good will," the letter read. "Why could not all the Brotherhoods of the several denominations and sects have a central council, or some framework of the sort that would engage the several brotherhoods in an active, united, city-wide, statewide, nation and worldwide movement in the social, economic and religious realm? There is plenty to do for all of us. Separately, we are doing well. United, we should be invincible." We could not help but look aghast when we came across an advertisement in Wednesday's Miami Daily News advertising a "PI RIM PARTY.," a traditional holiday, observed at Kitter's Hotel, Miami Beach, in the same advertisement also urging the public to make reservations for Passover. So that our good readers may not forget, Hitter's Hotel is one of the six who have ignored every effort to have them tell the public why it is that they continue to deceive the public in telling all that they are "kosher" hotels. And so thai even Hitter's might know they are not fooling everyone, we suggest that simply running a pencil through a sales slip showing they had bought "treifah" veal and lamb at a wholesaler's and charging it to another name will not help them. As late as last Monday, quite delectable veal, lamb fores and lamb racks were purchased and used by Hitter's from Armour's meat department, where everything is definitely "treifah." Of course, we presume that the purchase of these non-kosher foods will help in the "traditional holiday" observance. And it will also aid greatly in having a real Passover, when a "memorable holiday" will be traditionally observed. We feel that the fight we have directed against Hitter's Hotel. Helen Hotel, with Mr. Joseph Heller as its directing genius; London Arms Hotel, with the famous actor and producer, Mr. Luber, at its head; the Mayflower Hotel, with .Mr. Max (irossman as its responsible director; the Nemo Hotel, with that paragon of virtue and kashrus, Mr. Dave Drosnes of Long Keach presumably responsible for dietary observance, and the Belvedere Hotel, will not be in vain. The letters we have received, and the approval given us by leading Jewish and non-Jewish citizens in this fight have shown us that when awakened, the community will do its utmost to prevent deception. The matter will soon IMout of our hands. The proper authorities in Jewish religious life of this country have signified their intention to lend their every effort and energy to let the entire Jewish world know of the actions of Miami Beach hotel keepers referred to. We feel, we know, that these hotel men who, by their acts, have brought opprobrium to the Jewish name, will, when next year comes around, look at their depleted guest lists and then realize that "honesty is the best policy." Ladies Sponsor Purim Ball The Ladies Auxiliary of the Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation will entertain a large number of residents and guests at its annual Purim ball next Tuesday tvening, March 10th, beginning at o'clock, in the Floridian Hotel, i Miami Beach. The event, sponsored for the purpose of raising funds for the maintenance of its Tijlmud Torah, will present, as usual, a number of entertainers, who will appear through the courtesy of the local night clubs. Freddy Berrens and his orchestra, including the well known Jimmy Little, will provide music for the danc. big during the evening. Every piepa.'ation has been made to make this event one of the outstanding events of the current season. A nominal admission c%arge will be made. In charge of arrangements is a committee headed by Mrs. A. M. Bass of Miami and New York, general chairman; Mesdames Jack llirsch, Moe Pallott and Louis Kotkin on the souvenir journal; Mesdames Nat Blumberg, Harry Shulman and Nathan Adelman on the ticket committee, and Mesdames J. i Louis Shochet, Julius Washer, Max Happaport with Messrs. X. Adelman and Max Kappaport on the general committee. The public is cordially invited to attend. Will Broadcast Purim Program A one-half-hour program celebrating the Purim festival will be broadcast nationally over the WJZ network of the National Broadcasting Company Monday, March 9th, under the auspices of the cultural committee of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee. Speakers on the program, which will take place between 6 and 5:80 p. m., will be the chairman of the cultural committee, Dr. Cyrus Adler. president of Dropsie College, Philadelphia; Dr. Leo Jung, rabbi of the Jewish C<'iiter. New York City, also a member of the cultural committee, and Mr. Morns Engelman, the cultural committee's secretary. Purim music will be rendered by a choir of IC cantors, led by Cantor Pincus Jassinowsky. New York—Synagogues throughout the country will observe March 18tll and 14th as Young Judea Sabbath, at which time the value of the work of Young Judea, national Jewish cultural youth organization, will be stressed. Special services in which rabbis and lay leaders will join will be part of the annual Young Judea month in which Young Jude an groups throughout the country join in a concerted effort to enlarge the membership and influence of the organization among Jewish youth. Jewish Doctors To Hold Meeting Jerusalem (WNS-Palcor Agency)—The Palestine Committee of the World Congress of Jewish Physicians has now been organized and has decided to hold its first meeting in Tel Aviv from April 27 to 29, 1936. The position of Jewish physicians and the medical profession in the world, the present and future of medical education among Jews, the establishment of a World Union and an International Jewish Health Bureau, various health and hygiene questions among Jews of Palestine and abroad, racial questions and the misconceptions introduced by the Nazi teachings and other matters are to be on the agenda. National Farmers Open Convention at Tel Aviv Tel Aviv (WNS-Palcor Agency) 1 he place of Jewish labor in Palestine agriculture was the central theme at the opening here of a conference of the National Farmers' Union under the chairmanship of Samuel Zuchovitzky. It was emphasized by the latter that the union had split from the Jewish Farmers' Federation, headed by Moshe Smilansky, because the union insisted that Jewish farmers employ Jewish labor only. It was announced that the union has 700 members and that it has a collective contract with the Histadruth (Jewish Federation of Labor) for the employment of workers. The speakers at the first session declared that an improvement in the productivity of Jewish laborers on the farm had been noted. Zuchovitzky announced that this week the Jewish Agricultural Bank established by the Jewish Agency would begin extending loans for 15-year periods. Isaac Gruenbaum spoke to the conference on behalf of the Jewish Agency, and Alexander Goldstein on behalf of the Keren Hayesod. Resolutions adopted included: emphasis on the value of Jewish labor in agriculture ; opposition to the Legislative Council and the land restrictions proposals. Catholic Baby Circumcised by Mistake. Mohel and Hospital Pay $400 New York (WNS)—A case of mistaken identity that resulted in the circumcision of a Catholic baby by a mohel has cost the mohel and the hospital in which the rite was performed $400. The baby was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Lyman of the Bronx. They sued Hyman Budanz, mohel, and the Mount Morris Park Sanitarium for $25,000 on the ground that their son, Robert, who was born February 11th, 19.34, had been circumcised without their permission. The hospital and the mohel admitted the charge, but argued that circumcision did not make the baby a Jew. The case was given a humorous angle when it was tried before Judge Bernard L. Sheintag, a Jew, who found that the lawyer for the Lymans was a Jew, while the attorney for the hospital and the mohel was a Catholic. 50th Anniversary To Be Observed New York (WNS)—Plans for celebrating the 50th anniversaries of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America and Yeshiva College are being made here. The seminary anniversary will be observed in the fall. No date has been set for Yeshiva College's celebration.

Friday, March 6, 1936 THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN Page Three wJewisti IFKcndluati FLORIDA'S ONLY 'tl—No. 10 -€R*-S J Purim 5696 The Open Window (Continued from Page 1) Purim, 5696, has another ring than in former years. The carnival spirit is hushed. Even Palestine has cancelled all boisterous official I'urim celebrations. Jewry al over the world somehow cannot summon a joyous spirit. Dark clouds over Central European countries, over East European lands and over the Balkans throw their shadows. The danger of a world war is more imminent than ever. No wonder (hat this I'urim will find our people pondering over the past and thinking with a heavy heart of the future. It is hardly exaggerated to say that notwithstanding the wither dolorous panorama of Jewish life these days. Purim u-i a Jewish holiday will be observed in the synagogues more intensely than ever before. Religious life in this country, f one is to belie. e the reports from rabbinical sources, ,aining in strength. Good will organizations are contributing much to the synagOgal activities. There is undoubted!) it tendency on the part of a large segment of American Jewry to devote more attention and interest to the religious education of our youth. I'urim as a milestone in this Jewish year will stand out i:;st because world Jewry is grimly determined to gather all its strength and resources for constructive assistance to the victims of political, economic and social persecution. There are more fund-raising campaigns in this country than ever before, and the leaders of these campaigns have little doubt that their respective quotas will be attained. Thus I'urim celebrated in the spirit of brotherly love will mark this year .,. what has happened! The antia special, even if not joyous, occasion for Jewish gatherings Semites drive us back into folds al' over the world. ,. t the Jewish people. The tragedy is that these hated ones do not the great force that keeps Jews even have the joy of knowing why together. What a wonderful thing they are hated, and why they are riety or multiformity of civilization within which alone—alone by the teachinK of all experience and of all history—societies can creatively lift themselves to a level that .ittrits the name of human. • Now for ii variety of reasons which, differently estimated by different people, are malleiof common knowledge, there is a tendency in this age in many c mniies to make the power of the ate absolute and the doctrine of. y held by the Btate co-extensive with all truth. II was and is from this point of view that I comnred Fascism and Communism and declared them in practice to be equally repugnant to any high civlization. Now the Communists ake their stand upon the content of Communist doctrine It is an admissable argument. It wish it were admissable. I wish it were sound. Truth would have been found and the Meshiach would be n our midst and there would be no "liquidations" and no K. P. U. and no prison camps. For the truth— the absolute and incomparable nth would persuade all men by b?ing merely enunciated. Well, |,at i< not the case, is it? Even if a great d al more can be sail or Marxian Communism than I ind, even if all the claims made v h by it %  disciples wei • true, would yet remain by every i io partial truth, a human mixture of truth and error for the which no human bein; hould be hurt or enslaved or | of fundamental human rights. Certainly, Jews in Am n : a have th %  "right" 'to be CornBy the same token people in Rus i e "right to be social rev oluJon iries or anar >r Zionists o its. Only they haven"!. They are violently persecuted. The Btate truth is declared absolute. Moloch is back. „ Holy Office is back. No man ,,i group of men have the right to take that attitude. Thi content of the enforced "truth" is irrelevant. And unless man has suddenly changed and changed completely, all the totalitarian states will in due time be overthrown, not only by a new brand of authoritarians and state slaves, but by free men who would rather die than live any longer like beasts in eages of both the body and mind. The system of establishing any "truth" or body of "truths" as absolute and as enforceable by a i state is cspeerially disastrous tor -lews We are, for belter or worse, a peculiar people with our own speeial reactions towai ; man and nature and human life. Therefore the Gentile State has alw.... shown I .ward us two ten len cies: the tendency to segregate and destroy us and the tendency to absorb us. We do not, naturally, desire to be destroyed. It is doubtul whether we can be absorbed. And ultimately in hard fact destruction and absorption come to the same thing. Now tli • so-Called democratic state also hathe tendency either to destroy or absorb US, even as it lias the tendency to make robots of itcitizens. But just as all intelligent Americans resist that robotizing tendency oi their state, so American Jewcan freely resist the tendencies of the state to destroy or absorb them. Therefore .lews must be libertarian levolutionaries. They must resist ihe state. 1 use the word "must'' in this sen-e: if they would live and not die, if they would be neither destroyed nor absorbed. I fin i j e i utterly without a comprehension id the mental processes <>. any I w who, amid the im] %  but col of a di mo cratii Bociety, can become the it of an absolutist mast i at is hound by the no to l ier him at best the Ubso : ttitude as u 1 i ii.-m, as a lack Jew .... aa Jewish wish, li ilike the of th. die-hard assimilationists.

The rabbi who dares to point nut the faults and the indifference of the Jew finds himself reviled, adorned with all the vices which the antiSemite says the Jew possesses. Anti-Semitism seen from the Jewish point of view is line for the Jew and bail for the world, as seen from the world's point of view. One of the finest Christian historians of Jewish life, whose book I have read with great interest years ago. and who writes asympathetically and understanding^ as any Jewish writer could possibly write, nevertheless has this to say in his book, "Israel in Europe" (by G. F. Abbott): "Anti-Semitism is a movement retrogressive in a twofold sense. Retrogressive inasmuch as it shows that the current of European humanism is flowing backwards, and retrogressive inasmuch as it has actually checked the gradual and voluntary assimilation of the Jew." (The boldface | is mine.) were left alone they would commit at least wrap himself in his Tallith suicide in a nice, pleasant way, by assimilat ion. Since our friends expect us to commit suicide, why not commit' suicide? This is a fair question, why not ? When asked to do the things that will help us to remain Jews, Jews of dignity and culture. we turn a deaf ear. Why not do the other thing, deliberately, conscientiously and whole-heartedly forget and remove ourselves from the world scene? We are ashamed id' Judaism as a religion, or as a nationality; we know that we are not a race. We have no liking for | remains open for him to be thrown Jewish folk ways, for Jewish cereback through it. How much more mony, for Jewish worship, for Jewdignified to walk out into the world ish gatherings, for Sabbath obof science and art and culture as a servance, for holidays observance; Jew and then return manfully, walk ill short, we are human, and don't I back joyfully, not wait to be kicked and Tefilin and look up to bis God in ile-pair and prayer; the big fel,ew has no knowledge of Tallith Tefilin, and cannot lock Up to his God, whom he has lost so many ago. He haonly himself and his lost friends. Commit suicide? Why, he cannot even do that. How can a whole people commit BUicide? Some are not yet willing to do that. And what good will it do for a few to make their exit through assimilation, when the door won't shut behind him. and want to be reminded that we are Jews. If all the things we say of each other were really true, we would not be worth preserving; it would be a blessing if we could commit suicide. How can we commit suicide? Some tried to forget, to get out by the way of indifference, by way of baptism, by way of refusal to learn and know anything worth while In other words, anti-Semitism is [ about Jews and Judaism. And yet, back like a runaway slave. Religious people of all denominations sometimes forget the meaning of their OWH religion, and hold fast to the idea that religion is sad and tear-stained. They and we forget that religion is joy, and oappiness, and self-fulfillment. Only the observant Jew, the knowing Jew, the disciplined Jew, can live a nutural life, and feel like a MAN. Peihaps Paul A. Peters, author of thai J. T. A. space filler. "Between You and Me," appearing in a number of Anglo-Jewish weeklies throughout the country, may still have been suffering from malde-mer when he wrote about Miami last week we do not propose to lake issue with ibis effervescent gentleman when he bubbles over about the thirty cents he lost on the greyhounds, or his "Goyas" but we do propose to nail as untrue the story about overcharges ,n this area we, ton, lived in the North we, too, visited summer resorts throughout the country we challenge this honorable gentleman to compare prices in the Miami area with those charged elsewhere • • even in his beloved New York and then tell us in all truth that charges in Miami are not far more reasonable than elsewhere. And his ridiculous statement, "The Jewish community here isn't very active" '. does the honorable gentleman know that our local Jewish Welfare Bureau supports and aids many of our fellow Jews of parts other than Miami? Has be taken time to visit the B'nai K'rith lodge, which in a single year increased its membership from less than thirty to more than two hundred ? has he visited our four synagogues, one of which is now building a larger edifice to take care of the growing community? Does he know that our Miami Jews are ever vigilant to protect and stand up for their rights, as evidenced by the occurrence before the Daile County school board las' week? Does he know that it is Miami Jewry through its Greater Miami Jewish Cemetery Association that provides interment and last rites, free of charge, for Jews who come here from other Bections of the country, whose families are unable to pay perhaps h would like to know of the wealth} Jews, not of Miami, who by every means have avoided payment of expenses caused the local Jewish community for the burial and last rites of I heir close ones perhaps this columnist would like to be told Of the Young Men's Hebrew Association and Its affiliated organizations who, against all odds and without the help of wealthy tourists whose help we should rightfully receive, have been providing a home for its youth an %  raising a fund for the building that is sorely needed or would Mr. Peters like to know of the immigration wink done locally and paid for by local funds, which should i ,r e been done by I IAS or national institutions or would Mr. Peters like to know that the Jewish merchant are in the forefront oi every civic and communal work in this community doe he know that we have a Jewish ci man al M iai B a rh, a Jew ish assistant county solicitor for Hade County, Harry Goldstein, tax collector for Dade County, and oiler Jews occupying positions of Ion u and trust iii this community, iition to ... whom we are ju he know oi Philip Li erman, • recentlj was chosei the IK ids State Hankers' Association, though aii er he has found time to ei % %  president of the Peach Shul doehe know of Harry I.

We would have paid no attention to this absurd article were it not for the fact that some nonJews who might perchance read this article of Mr. Peters would take it as Gospel truth because it appeared in an Anglo-Jewish paper. May we most respectfully direct this columnist's attention to the old but nevertheless true and trite saying of the Talmud, "Chachomim Heezoharu b'divraychem" (wise nun guard their words). Mr. Peters owes Miami Jewry an apology! New York (UN'S)-An Albert Einstein fund for Palestine will be raised in New York by the Council of Jewish Organizations as part of the $:i,500,000 United Palestine Appeal, it was announced at a meeting of the council.
