NEW YEAR REFLECTIONS
A New Year Message
By RABBI JACOB H. KAPLAN, Ph. I).
Temple Israel
In My Brethren of the Covenant of Abraham in Miami and Miami
lieach, and lo my friends everywhere. Greeting:
THE BEST HOLIDAYS
The best of all holidays are those
Kept by ourselves in silence and
apart;
The secret anniversaries of the
heart,
When the full river of feeling
overflows.
Say among the nations: "The
A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU
ALL. AMEN.
The Talmud tells us that if one
has a headache, he should exam-
ine his conduct.
Having examined
his conduct, and
finding there that
might have
caused the head-
ache he should
ascribe the head-
ache to God's
love, for "whom
the Lord loveth,
he chasteneth."
Having assumed
the responsibility
of becoming a
priestPeople, it
is quite in keep-
ing with the laws
of holiness that
we, the House of
Israel, should suffer more than
any other people, who have not
assumed such responsibility. The
president of the United States re-
ceives more praise and blame vhan
does the governor of a state, and
the governor receives more blame
and praise than the sheriff.
We Jews have created out of ur
..wn heart and soul a system of
morality, : religious outlook, an
interpretation of. life, which sees
(;.1 as the Ruler and Father of
Creation, and all men as brothers,
we have assumed responsibility tor
e sing that program through, for
hi Iping to make it work, for | on-
soring what the American philoso-
phy calls the pragmatic philosophy
of" the Whole HIV. Ours is the
privilege and the duty of making
manifest an ethical Father of the
World, and an ethical brotherhood
on earth.
On this New Year, what happi-
ness can we wish ourselves com-
le to the inexpressible hap-
piness of assuming that mighty
project!

Of course, as Jews we are only
weak human beings like the rest
of humanity, and so in the "short
run" we suffer way beyond our
lue and our phys-
i c a 1 endurance,
but in the "long
run" we as a peo-
ple must never
forget that we
DO HAVE THAT
R E SPONSIBIL-
1TY. and must
tran ourselves to
he willing to suf-
fer for that In-
comparably grand
[DEAL. Against
us through the
centuries and now
again men have
devised lii's, ex-
pulsions, crucifix-
ions, hatred, de-
privations of every description, too
cruel for a God-intoxicated people
even to comprehend, but on this
New Year we cannot allow these
refined and unrefined cruelties to
nil. us of our faitii in Cod's
tiess and in His plan of making us
strong to hold on until the whole
earth shall he filled with His
Spirit, even as He has promised us:
We shall not fail nor be discour-
aged till we have helped to ,-et
Justice in all the earth.
And so we pray on this New
fear's Day for us ami for the'
House of Israel, <) God of the'
World. Father of all mankind, ^asi
us not away from Thy presence,
and take nol Thy holy spirit from
us, that we may in leed lie worthy
to cry out even in the midst of
our suffering: Heai1, i) Israel, hear
ail the world, the Lord, our God,
:' e Lord is ONE.
A happy, a prosperous, a soul-
satisfying New Year to you all!
Amen.

KEDUSHA
The Story of a Sinner Who Remembered
By LOUS I.IPSKY
.\\\\\\NN\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\>\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\>\\'
This short story is by Louis
I.ipsky, outstanding Jewish lead-
er, who is also one of our most
distinguished writers, and tells
the tale of one Yossel. It is a
free adaptation from the Yiddish
of that master story teller, S. J.
Rabinowitz.The Kditor.
The synagogue was filled with
worshipers. A little to the right,
pressed against the wall, stood a
small, bent man, with a Tallith
veiling his face. He himself was
rigid except for a shudder which
often ruffled his Tallrth. He had
stood in this posture for some time.
The Psalm preceding the shofar
blowing had been chanted; the si-
lent prayer had been passed; the
Chazan was beginning his song;
but the man was oblivious to his
surroundings.
A deep thundering note broke
forth from a thousand voices, fol-
lowed by a silence in which the
soft voice of the reader intoned
T'kiyoh, and then the shofar thun-
dered forth its reminder that di-
vine judgment was about to be
sealed. When he heard this note,
loud and shrill, the man drew him-
self together with a shudder.
He seemed to be transported to
the high court. There were the
angels, kurriedly floating by, pros-
I trating themselves, and then cir-
! cling about the throne of God,
whose awing presence seemed to
pervade all. There was judgment
to be given.
"Yossel, Yossel, Yossel!" called
the Angel of Mercy, here stands,
Master of the World, poor, unhap-
py Yossel; see, he is alone in the
blasts issued more strongly. It
was the end. At the final pas-
sage a long-drawn-out and more
impressive tone was given vent to.
On the Resurrection Day his
wife, Basha, would also arise. Such
a trumpet blast, yea, a thousand-
fold stronger than this, would
thrill the world, for no mortal
would press his lips to the shofar,
but the Archangel Michael himself.
And the sounds would fill the four
ends of the earth, from the heights
of Sinai to the nethermost regions.
All who slumbered in the sod would
rise from their beds to behold the
light of God's magnificence. The
breath of life would sweep over
the world, and strong young men
would arise, blooming young wom-
en, beaming children, and there
would be joyful reunions.
And his wife, Br.sha, would also

It was long since he had visited
her grave; the mound was lonely
and desolate; only the swine were
groveling about, thrusting their
muzzles into the earth. There was
no monument, not a flower nearby;
moss covered her last resting place,
and ants ran in and out. The
Christian church yard was not far
from it and the graves were shad-
owed by green trees. There every-
one slept in the midst of his own,
surrounded by relatives and
friends, but only she lay in a de-
serted, forgotten corner, all alone.
In death, too, she was to be torn
from him. The awfulness of a
lonely grave!
"Yet I alone am to blame. I
brought sorrow down upon you,
you poor soul,' murmured Yossel,
as if to console himself with that
confession. "With me it will not
rupted- angrily: "Whaf.! He de-
serves mercy? He who brought on
the death of his wife! Whose sin
was it that his sons were born
over to error?" Yossel heard the
accusation, and knew that Satan
spoke the truth.

A picture presents itself to
him, and he sees her just as she
appeared under the bridal canopy.
But what deep sorrow speaks from
her eyes! She moves as if in
doubt, and he understands what
troubles her so, and feels his heart
dissolving in grief.

at his table.
His wife, Basha, who, in the
goodness of her heart always wel-
comed the poor to her table, was
especially proud to have the in-
structor of her children lodged un-
der her roof. All her thoughts
were directed to the end that her | tition in the city meant; there wen.

could not imagine how he could
live in another community, espe-
cially in a large city, for city life
seemed so foreign to him. And,
moreover, he could not leave his
business. He knew what compe-
e
i ence.
As he stood in the synagogue on
I this day of judgment, where he
judged his own life and produced
the witnesses against himself, he
was forced to confess that only
Satan could thus have misled him;
could have poisoned his mind with
reasons which convinced him that
he had better remain in the town.
He had no real faith in God. It
pained him to leave his business,
and there was even a more hor-
rible feeling that filled his heart
at the time: it was that the de-
parture of his neighbors would
leave their places empty, and he
would profit by it. He well knew
that this feeling was the decisive
reason for his remaining in the
town.
In his memory now arose the
moment when he escorted the de-
parting families from their home.-.
How he wept! It touched his heart
to see the misfortune of his breth-
ren who were compelled to take
up the wanderer's staff. And how
it pained him to part with those
families with whom he was so
friendly that he well nigh consid-
ered them blood relatives! The
majority of them were members of
his congregation, related to one an-
other by bonds of sorrow and
friendship. When they wept he was
in great distress, and he, too,
dropped tear- of sincere regret and
sorrow; but in a coiner of his heart
there lurged s feeling of satisfac-
tion in that all his competitors in
business were about to depart, lie

this, hut he could not banish it
from his mind. "What has come
over me? Am I no more a man?
Have I become a selfish beast ?"
When the teacher left, Yossel un-
dertook the education of his son.;.
He himself was not unlearned and
was fully able to instruct his sons,
His eldest son was dull, the young-
er was not without intelligence
but he had no desire to learn. Both
were genuine farmer boys, who de-
lighted to play with horses and un-

EDMUND REID, Pres.

IT is one of the fundamental prin-
ciples of true Americanism that
all religions are entitled to equal
respect. Freedom for every man
to worship God according to the
mandates of his conscience implies
the political, social and intellectual
freedom which is the very founda-
tion of our national life.
IN the United States we regard
it as axiomatic that every per-
son shall enjoy the free exercise
of his religion according to the dic-
tates of his conscience. Our flag
fur a century and a half has been
the symbol of the principles of lib-
erty of conscience, of religious
freedom and equality before the
law: and these concepts are deep-
ly ingrained in our national char-
acter. It is Hue that other na-
tions may. as they do, enforce con-
trary rules of conscience and con-
duit. It is true that policies that
may be pursued under flags other
than our own are beyond our juris-
lietion. Yet in our inner individual
lives we can never be indifferent,
when ideals and principles that we
have cherished are challenged.
WE have sought by every legit-
imate means to exert our
moral influence against repression,
against intolerance and against au-
tocracy and in favor of freedom of
expression, equality before the law,
religious tolerance and popular
rules.
IT is idle for us or for others to
preach that the masses of the
people who constitute the nations
which are dominated by the twin
spirits of autocracy and aggression
are out of sympathy with their
rulers, that they are allowed no
opportunity to express themselves
that they would change things if
they could. That, unfortunately, is
not so clear. It might be true that
the masses of the people in those
nations would change the policies
of their governments if they could
be allowed full freedom, full ac-
cess to processes of democratic
government as we understand
them. But they do not have that
access; lacking it, they follow
blindly and fervently the lead of
those who seek autocratic power.
THE evidence before us clearly
proves that autocracy in world
affairs endangers peace and that
such threats do not spring from
those nations devoted to the demo-
cratic ideal. If this be true in
world affairs, it should have the
greatest weight in the determina-
tion of domestic policies. Within
democratic nations the chief con-
cern of the people is to prevent
the continuation or the rise of au-
tocratic institutions that beget
slavery and aggression abroad.
Within our borders, as in the world
at large, popular opinion is at war
with a power-seeking minority.
IN this world of ours, in other
lands, there are some people
Who, in times past, have lived and
fought for freedom and seem to
have grown too weary to carry on
the fight. They have sold their
heritage of freedom for the illusion
of a living. They have yielded
their democracy. I believe in my
heart that only our success can
stir their ancient hope. They be-
gin to know that here in America
we are waging a great war. It is

not only a war against w

zation. It is a war for th
vival of den We are fight-
ing to rave a great and pre
fon vernmenl
and for the world.
IN" the conflict of policies and of
political systems which the
w irld today \\i: United
States has held forth for its own
guidance and for the guidance of
other nations, if they will accept
it, this great torch of liberty A
human thought, liberty of human
conscience. We will never lower
it. We will never permit, if we
can help it. the lieht to grow dim.
Rather through every means legit-
imately within our power and our
office will we seek to increase
that light, that its rays may ex-
tend the further; that its glory
may be seen even from afar. Every
vindication of the sanctity of these
rights at home, every prayer that
other nations may accept them, is
an indication of how virile, how
living they are in the hearts of
every true American.
NO greater thing could come to
our land today than a revival
of the spirit of religion a revival
that would seep through the homes
of the nation and stir the hearts
of men and women of all faiths to
a reassertion of their belief in God
and their dedication to His will
for themselves and for their world.
I doubt if then- is any problem
social, political or economicthat
would not melt away before the
fire of such a spiritual reawaken-
ing.
IT la well to remember that this
America of ours is the product
of no single race or creed or class.
Men and womenyour fathers and
minecame here from the far cor-
ners of the earth with beliefs that
widely varied. And yet each in
his own way laid his own special
gift upon our national altar to
enrich our national life. From the
gift that each has given all have
gained.
EVES since the beginning of our
republic we have welcomed
many men and women of ability
and character from other coun-
tries, who have found their use-
fulness cut off by conditions which
are alien to the American system.
THIS is no time to make capital
out of religious disagreement,
however honest. It is a time, rath-
er, to make capital out of religious
understanding. We who have faith
cannot afford to fall out among
ourselves. The very state of the
world is a summons to us to stand
together. For, as I see it. ths
chief religious issue is not bet ween
our religious belief.-. [(
tween belief and unbelief.
I not your specific faith or
mine that is being called into
rtion, but all faith. Religion
in wide areas of the earth is
ing confronted with irrelig
faiths are being challenged. It is
because of that threat that you
and I must reach across the lines
between our creeds, clasp hands
and make common cause.
TO do that will do credit to tin
best of our religious tradition.
It will do credit, also, to the best
in our American tradition. The
spiritual resources of our forebears
have brought us a long way toward
the goal which was set before the
nation at its founding as a nation.
YFT I do not look upon these
United States as a finished
product. We are still in the mak-
ing. The vision of the early days
Still requires the same qualities of
faith in God and man for its ful-
fillment.
I LIKE to think of our countr\
as one home in which the inter-
ests of each member are bound up
with the happiness of all. Wfl
ought to know by now that the
welfare of your family or mine
cannot be bought at the sacrifice
of our neighbor's family; that our
well being depends, in the long
run. upon the well being of our
neighbors.
THE Good Neighbor Idea a- we
are trying to practice it in in-
ternational relationships needs I
be put into practice in our
munity relationships. When it is
We may discover that the road to
understanding and fellowship is
:ritual awaken-
ing. At our neighbor's fin
we may find new fuel for the fires
of faith al our own hearthside.
I SHOULD like to see associa
of good neighbors in
town and city and in every rural
community of our 'and. Such as-
sociations of sincere citizens, like-
minded as to the underlying prin-
ciples and ideals, would reach
across the lines of creed or of eco-
nomic status. It would bring to-
gether men and women of all sta-
tions to share their problems and
their hopes and to discover ways
of mutual and neighborly helpful-
ness.
HERE, perhaps, is a way to pool
our spiritual resources; to find
common ground on which all of
us of all faiths can stand: an!
thence move forward as men and
n concerned for the things of
the spirit.
IT i- at all times desirable, and
especially so in times of wide-
spread readjustment, to keep un-
impaired the sources of our spir-
itual strength and to maintain tin
tenets of our American political
faith, particularly the vital prin-
ciples of equality, of opportunity
and justice to all.

THE REVOLUTION IN DEFENSE
STRATEGY
A New Idea for Eradicating Anti-Semitism Is Making Headway,
Says This Writer
By LOUIfl M1NSKY
THE past year has witnessed the
spread of a new outlook with
respect to fighting anti-Semitism.
The chief element in this outlook
i.> an impatience with surface solu-
tions and a conviction that it is
necessary to go down to root
causes. The failure of Jewish
strategy in the German situation
has created the belief that old
methods are ineffective, if not fu-
tile. The idea that anti-Semitism
is something primarily for Jews
to be fighting has been largely dis-
credited. That the Jewish prob-
lem can be divorced from all other
problems it is realized is impos-
sible in the complicated world in
which we live. It is an unrealistic
approach which may achieve tem-
porary solutions and give the Jews
a breathing spell, but is unsound
as an ultimate disposition of the
question.
WHILE the German situation
has demonstrated the unwis-
dom of a strategy in which the in-
itiative is taken by Jews, it has
also proven something else. It has
shown us that the forces of de-
cency are helpless upon a back-
ground of economic misery. The
slow accumulation of economic, so-
cial and political abuses has hard-
ened the hearts of Germans and
made many of them immune to the
elementary amenities of civilized
behavior. It is for this reason that
protests and appeals have been
without effect. The German peo-
ple in large numbers have cast
aside such keystones of progress
as justice, decency, religion and
morality and substituted in their
place a ruthless and selfish philos-
ophy of life which is without par-
allel in the history of modern
times.
THIS new weltaanschaung has
caused a revolution in the think-
ing of those outside of Germany,
particularly those concerned most
closely with the solution of the
Jewish problem. It has precipi-
tated a new conception not only of
the Jewish question, but of many
other questions. It has, for in-
stance, been responsible for the in-
itiation of a new kind of diplo-
macy and it has especially brought
unto being a new idea for solving
the problem of peace, based upon
the diagnosis that the cause of war
is essentially economic. While in
the past attempts were made to
maintain peace by a sort of patch-
ing up process which dealt witn
individual situations, peace soci-
eties today are stressing a reor-
ganization of the economic proc-
esses of the world as the only basic
solution to the problem of war. A
redistribution of the world's raw
materials, a reallocation of colo-
nies and similar measures are seen
to be imperative for a final solu-
tion. The whole basic structure
of our thinking and conduct and
of society itself must be reorgan-
ized so that no nation will have
any excuse for war.
JEWS, also, have been affected
by this new idea of attacking
problems by eliminating their fun-
damental causes and the conviction
has strengthened that in order to
solve the Jewish problem we must
go down to root causes. This means
that attitudes for combating prej-
udice must be revolutionized. Jews
and others interested in the prob-
lem of anti-Semitism must be con-
cerned with new factors hitherto
regarded as having no connection
with the question of proper atti-
tudes between Jews and Christians.
THE specific approach which i.-
gaining favor may be reduced
to the formula that the solution
of the Jewish problem is inex-
tricably bound up with the insti-
tution of a higher morality for the
entire community. This is to say
that it is necessary to establish
justice in general and a higher
morality in society at large. The
strategy which attempts to secure
justice only for the Jews and for
no one else achieves no lasting re-
sults, since the treatment of the
Jews is at the whim of many other
factors, social, economic, political,
religious, psychological. A move-
ment against labor, for example,
may develop into a movement
against the Jews. The injustice of
men toward men in their social re-
lationship produces such a phenom-
enon as the Black Legion, which
becomes identified with Jew ha-
tred and hatred of every other mi-
nority. Economic abuses produce
hunger and misery which result in
blind passion and the inevitable
hunt for scapegoats. In other
I words, Jews are victims of many
I outbreaks of injustice and passion
which have nothing at all to do
I with themselves. So that their only
safeguard is to promote justice
everywhere. The creation of jus-

The United
States in 5696
The upward trend of the graph
of American economic recovery re-
flected itself in the life of the Jew-
ish community of the United States
luring 6696. The past year can be
regarded as a period of stabiliza-
tion in every phase of organized
Jewish life. The depression, al-
most forgotten, no longer barri-
caded the advance and initiative
of the important organizations,
fund-raising efforts, cultural en-
deavors and other specifically Jew-
ish projects. From this point of
view 5696 can safely be classified
as the best year American Jewry
has enjoyed since 1930.
While predictions that Jewish
life in this country would divide it-
self more and more according to
economic strata were not con-
tinued, there were evident two
sharply demarcated currents in
Jewish leadership. These currents
were at various times interpreted
as having their source in the Zion-
ist and non-Zionist philosophies of
Jewish life. Last year these two
groups came to a definite parting
of the ways on the issue of the
World Jewish Congress. A bitter
struggle convulsed American Jew-
ry for almost the entire year, with
both siiies making strcmiou- ef-
forts to win the support of a ma-
jority of the Jewish population. If
the Washington conference of the
American Jewish Congress, which
elected the American delegation to
the World Jewish Congress, may
be regarded as a criterion, the
World .[.wish Congress idea won
the final victory. The same dif-
ferences Of Opinion wen' also evi-
dent in the attitude of these two
groups on the German Jewish sit-
uation and on fund-raising efforts
lo, Palestine and for European re-
lief. One of the highlights of the
y.ar was the unanimous election
of Dr. Stephen S. Wise to the pres-
idency of the Zianist Organization
of America, brought about by the
crisis in Palestine, which compelled
American Zionists to strengthen
their leadership.
The brown shadow of Hitlerism
hung over the American Jewish
scene no less than over Europe. It
was not only that fund-raising or-
ganizations were primarily occu-
pied with furthering the exodus of
Jews from N'aziland, but on prac-
tically every other Jewish front
the Xazi situation left its imprint.
Herman Jewish refugees constitut-
ed a large portion of the German
quota to the United States, the
number admitted being expected to
approach 4,000 by the end of 1936.
A number of youngsters, children
of Nazi Victims, were adopted in
American Jewish homes, while
Jewish college fraternities and so-
rorities undertook to provide schol-
arships and room and hoard for
German Jewish students admitted
to this country. The University
in Exile continued to employ a
number of distinguished emigre
savants.
A delegation of British Jews
visited the United States on a mis-
sion to interest American Jewry in
a huge exodus plan aimed to trans-
plant 100,000 German Jews in four
years to Palestine and other coun-
tries. The Joint Distribution Com-
mittee and the United 1'alestine
Appeal, which engaged in separate
drives last year, refused to he di-

'and did not join in this new scheme.
The aggressive campaign under
the auspices of Hadassah raised
over $100,000 for the Youth Aliyah,
which enabled hundreds of German
' Jewish children to be settled in
Palestine.
The anti-Nazi boycott main-
tained its unbroken front. It was
helped by various governmental
actions against Germany. The boy-
cott also spread to Cultural spheres
when Arturo Toscanini gave up
his directorship of the Philharmon-
ic Society to direct the first con-
cert of the new Palestine Sym-
phony, and the board of directors
of the Philharmonic invited Wil-
helm Fuertwaengler to succeed
him. A barrage of protests and
threats of a boycott forced the
withdrawal of the invitation to the
German conductor. A number of
American universities refused to
participate in the celebration of
Heidelberg's 550th anniversary, I-
though Yale, Columbia, Cornell,
Michigan and Harvard, among oth-
ers, sent official representatives.
Harvard, however, again refused
a scholarship from "Putzi" Hanf-
staengel, Hitler's press adjutant.

Even Hollywood felt the impact of
Nazi influence when it refused to
make a film of Sinclair Lewis' sen-
sational novel of Fascism in Amer-
ica, "It Can't Happen Here." The
fight against American participa-
tion in the Berlin Olympics reached
its climax last year at the A. A.
U. convention and was ended when
an American team, which included
five Jews and ten negroes, sailed
for Berlin after last-minute efforts
to raise the necessary funds. A
huge anti-Nazi sports carnival was
held in New York under the aus-
pices of organized labor.
Although the president of the
United States, because of estab-
lished diplomatic conventions,
could not undertake any official
act of disapproval of the Nazi re-
gime, he did on several occasions
express in unmistakable terms his
abhorrence of Nazi persecution of
Jews and Catholics and his repug-
nance at racial discrimination.
Speaking in behalf of the presi-
dent, Secretary of the Interior
Ickcs delivered a speech at a Unit-
ed Palestine Appeal dinner which
1 came as close as being an offi-
cial reprimand to Nazi anti-Sem-
itism as his official position per-
mitted. In his address accepting

BLOW THE GREAT HORN FOR

Coleridge wrote those lines in
1797. They might so easily ac-

cording to their manner have been
written yesterday. The sensual

human mercy, tranquility and both

scorched by suffering and conflict.

themselves that any means are jus-

the proponents of that end until
they themselves are the last who

pure and redeemed will that seeks
to change this worl ter world that is to come. The
center is the inner life; the great
decisions are to be made between
the soul and its God. If they are
not made there first, the actions
that spring from them will not al-
ter one whit the character of the
moral world. And unless that is
altered nothing is altered; unless
the heart and will are changed all
changes are but shufflings of the
same old elements of chaos. Un-
less each soul achieves its teshu-
vah and men collectively act out
of a purged and sanctified will we
shall go on aspiring after a better
world feebly, futilely and in vain.
But men can act out of a will
thus purged and sanctified. Of
that fact the shining example not
only lor us but, if it will be heeded,
for all mankind, is now being of-
fered by the people of our Yishub
in Eretz Yisrael. They have been
beset by bandits, by incendiaries
of trees and crops, by assassins of
little children. They have not re-
taliated, they have committed no
act of vengeance and reprisal
Young, strong, fiery, sufficiently
numerous, they have brought to a
standstill the ancient evil pendu-
lum which swings from injury to
retaliation and thence back to new
injury and repeated retaliation.
They have achieved an inner free-
dom; they have set an example to
the world. Their reward may be
delayed. Their example will be in-
corporated in the experience of Is-
rael, in the larger experience of
mankind.
It is fitting that Jews should act
thus. It is lamentable that to all
.lews this truth concerning the ne-
cessity of an inner change before
action can shape a better world is
not an instinctive and self-evident
one. We have forgotten so much;
we have borrowed and substituted
for our own the perishable brittle
wisdom of the pagan world, and
fallen victim to its trust in de-

vices and inventions. For to our '
sages and to our tradition this cen-
tral mystery of life has always
been dear and they have carried '
it to the center of the universe it-
self. In the tractate of the Tal-
mud that deals with Rosh Ha-
shanah we read this strange and
apparently exorbitant passage:
"The congregation of Yisrael spake
before the Holy One, Blessed be
He: Lord of the Universe, I am
dear ,to Thee then, when Thou
nearest the voice of my beseech-
ing." God Himself is not frozen
into an eternal rigidity of righ-
teousness; in Cod Himself there
is a fluid element that allies Him
to His children. When He hears
the beseeching of Yisrael and on
account of that beseeching His jus-
tice becomes mercythen is Yis-
rael dearest to Him. The universe
in other words is, according to th"
Jewish conception, a universe of
moral dynamism, of a continuous
vivid moral life. Changes in cir-
cumstance, device, technique are of
no avail unless they are the out-
ward and visible embodiments of
moral change, of spiritual vision,
of justice, truth and peace suffus-
ing the inner being of men. There-
fore, it is forever true that these
threedin, emeth, shalomare, as
Shimon ben Gamliel declared them
to be, the pillars on which the
world rests. But they are the in-
ner pillars of man's moral nature.
For the outer world is but the mir-
ror of that inner world of man's
moral being. More than ever be-

be first an inner freedom if from

redemption of mankind before we

THE JEWISH FI.ORIDIAN
Friday, September 18, 193G
Palestine in 5696
Four years of uninterrupted
growth which rose in a steady up-
ward curve were suddenly chal-
lenged less than six months ago
when Palestine found itself at the
beginning; of a series of disorders
that have had no parallel since the
time when British troops, bolstered
by Jewish legionnaires, wrested the
ancestral homeland from Turkish
suzerainty.
By the end of 1985 the Jewish
Agency for Palestine was pointing
out that 62,.....' Jewish immigrants,
more than went to all other lands
combined, had entered the country
during the preceding twelve
month-. f50,000,000 had been im-
ported by immigrants during the
I, a huge sum that went to
fructif) industry and commerce
and to bolster a government
plus thai huge total
of twice the annual budget. Over
U n Erom iermany had
: Palest ine since
the Hitler reign started.
Mori than 10,000 Jews, to eon-
with 58,000 in 1919, were liv-
ing in Palestine when violence and
. tion laid their i iotous hands
intry on April 19, 1930.
For the fourth time since the Jew
ish National Home policy had been
enunciated by the British manda-
tory power native Arabt
denounce Jewish immigration, to
demand a ban on land sales and to
urge the establishment of a na-
tional Arab government.
The tragic events which startled
the world in April had been intro-
duced by months of uncertainty
and tension. The Italo-Abyssinian
war. casting a shadow over the en-
tile Near East, causing a restric-
tion in trade, a tightening in cred-
it, a decline in tourists and a gen-
eral economic excitement, laid the
foundation for a challenge to the
British Empire, whose prestige was
weakened by the fiasco of its for-
eign policy vis-a-vis Italy. In No-
vember of 1936 the existence of
an Arab terrorist band was dis-
covered. Its professed aim was to
drive Jews out by force and to
seize rule from the British. Ac-
USed of murder, the members -if
the band were hailed as patrioti
by their co-religionistS. Occasion-
al sniping thereafter and a series
of highway robberies, accompanied
by ruthless assassinations, flamed
into the conflagration of April 19,
when Aral>s began to murder dews
on the streets of Jaffa on the ba-
sis of a false rumor that Jews had
assailed Arabs.
Since then more than fifty .lews
been killed by the guns of
A rail assassins, to the accompani-
st like which has
mntry. Al-
most three times as many Arabs

an l homes, and ambushing of
lers and vehicles.
commission, head-
ed by l.ord Peel, scheduled to sur-
vey the causes id' the disorders
and also to ascertain whether the
league mandate is being properly
Implemented) there can be no cer-
tainty as to the Arab course in
the future, this being dependent
on the findings of the commission
and the manner in which they are
turned into policyto the satisfac-
tion of the Arab.-.
From the Jewish side some facts
are outstanding. One is the ex-
traordinary heroism and restraint
displayed by the Jewish commu-
nity in Palestine. Dispensing with
all party differences, the Yishuv ,
has shown a united front to van- .
dais and assassins. It is well
known that the Jews -if Palestine
are adequately equipped for self-
defense. Prompted by idealism |
and a wish to avoid hurt to their
cause, the Jew.- of Palestine have
not retaliated against the almost
irresistible provocation by the
A abs. By their conduct dur-
ing these riots the Jews of Pal-
estine demonstrated that they have
apacity for self-government
and that no obstacle-, no matter
how great, will deter them from
going forward with all speed in
the rebuilding of the Jewish Na-
tional Home.
Another important item result-
ing from the disturbances was the
establishment of the Tel Aviv port.
The great trade which previously
flowed through Jaffa will now pro-
vide greater employment and new
channels of progress for the all-
Jewish city, whose population is
now at 150,000.
That Jews throughout the world
have reacted to the Palestine
events in the spirit manifested by
the Yishuv is reflected in the rec-
ord of uninterrupted immigration.
During the first seven months of
V.r.W a total of almost 19,000 Jews
entered Palestine, still more than
the number absorbed by all other
lands.
The principal problem faced by
Jewish Palestine today is political
rather than economic, for the Jew-
ish economic structure in the land
has not been undermined to any
_'
considerable extent by the Arab
strike. In many spots that struc-
ture has been bolstered. But Great
Britain has an eye on sentiment in
other Moslem countries; it would
like to keep the support of Arab
potentates in the Middle Fast. To
what extent will it sacrifice its
promise to the Jews in obedience
to those two factors?

at home and abroad. Senator King
of Utah made an impassioned ap-
peal in the senate for an open door '
to German Jewish refugees.
The year also revealed a re-
new e d organized anti-Semitic
movement which in some instances
assumed a definite political char-
acter. Notwithstanding the fact
that they have been discredited in
years past, the Silver Shirts, the
Ku Klux Klan and similar bodies
resumed their campaigns against
American Jewry. The disclosures
of the activities of the Black Le-
gion horrified the nation. Follow-
ing the example of European Fas-
cists, a number of organizations
bluntly injected anti-Semitism into
American politics. The whisper-
ing campaign alleging that Secre-
tary of Labor Perkins is a Jewess,
the attempts to cut short Governor
Lehman's political career because
of his Jewishness, the creation of
an anti-Jewish party in Chicago
by a defeated mayoralty candidate,
the conversion of the Friends of.
the New Germany into a so-called
American body to enable them to
play a role in politics, the organi-
zation of the Christian party and
the American National Labor par-
ty and the attempt to brand the
New Deal as "a Jew deal" must
all be listed as manifestations at
this disconcerting tendency. The
most prominent political protago-
nists of this political anti-Semit-
ism were the Sentinels of the Re-
public, Father Coughlin, the Rev,
Gerald K. Smith, political heir of
lluey I/ong and William Randolpn
Hearst, who, although never di-
rectly attacking the Jews as BUch,
set the stage for a hysterical at-
titude against aliens and "reds"
in an attempt to confuse in the
minds of the American people the
terms "Communist" and "immi-
grant American." In Florida, a
publication, "Race and Nation," ev-
idently fostered by political reac-
tionaries, sought to spread its poi-
sonous venom. In Miami numer-
ous anti-Semitic propaganda were
frowned upon and promptly
scotched by public authorities.
These un-American OUtcroppings
had the effect of strengthening the
liberal forces, which did not hesi-
tate to speak out against concealed
or open Fascism in America. Pore-
most among these staunch defend-
ers of old-fashioned Americanism
-ere Governor Karle of Pennsyl-
vania, President Conant of Har-
vard, Judge Collins of the New
York Supreme Court, the Rev. L.
M. Birkhead, Sinclair Lewis anil
his wife. Dorothy Thompson, and
Governor Curley of Massachusetts,
whose vigorous action against the
president of the Sentinels of the
Republic drove that organization
into oblivion. Mayor La Guardia
of New York, disregarding his of-
ficial position, utilized every op-
portunity to combat Nazism and
racial discrimination. As chief
magistrate of the city of New York
he ordered the arrest of Robert
Edward Bdmondson, anti-Semitic
pamphleteer. Further evidence
that the nation resented the petty
racial-prejudice-mongers was pro-
vided by the unprecedented ovation
accorded Governor Lehman at the
Democratic national convention.
Jewish leadership in the United
Slates lost a number of its most
beloved national figures, among
ihem Bernard s. Deutsch, Peter
Wiemik, Judge Otto Rosalsky, Pro-
fessor Richard Gottheil and Gen-
eral Milton Foreman. The death of
Dr. S. Parkes Cadman, champion
of religious freedom, created great
sorrow among the Jewish commu-
nity.
When studying the annals of
5096 the Jewish historian will note
thai American Jewish leadership
began to throw off the shackles of
I uie y philanthropic control. Jew-
ish social workers manifested
striking independence and a deter-
mination to fight for social jus-
tice in organized Jewish communal
life, while the rabbis continued
their notable progressive attitude.
Tlie Reform rabbis went on record
as favoring the exemption from
military service of those Jews who
oppose war on the grounds of con-
science, and the Conservative group
endorsed birth control. The Jew-
ish panorama in the United States
would not be complete without
mentioning the settlement of Jew-
ish needle trade workers in the
Federal resettlement project at
Hightstown, N. J., and the upward
trend in the construction of new
Jewish buildings and the steady in-
crease in the support accorded to
Jewish cultural activities.
Despite the undeniable disunity
among Jewish leaders and the in-
crease of anti-Semitism in the
United States, one can say that
Jews strengthened their position
as useful and constructive factors
during a period of economic, social
and political transition.

"And then bright and early

to stand on.
"And Shabbos rolled around .

JEWS AND CHRISTIANS MUST
STAND TOGETHER
By DR. IVAN I.EE HOLT
President! the Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America
LONG before there ever was a
National Conference of Jews
and Christians, I came in contact
with a friendly Jewish rabbi whose
tt-mple was across the street from
my church. In addition to the Fri-
day night and Saturday morning
services he had a service on Sunday
morning. For many years he had
been in the city before I came, and
he received me most graciously.
WE took walks together and
talked about our common
problems. He invited me to preach
for him, and I began to speak in
every campaign for Jewish char-
ities. More than once there were
held in my church services anil
meetings in behalf of Jewish war
sufferers. When my friend, the
rabbi, died I had memorial services
for him in my church. I am sure
nothing of that kind had ever been
done before.
IN these more recent years, the
successor to that rabbi and 1
have drawn our two congregations
together by all kinds of co-opera-
tive enterprises. This association
lias fallen within the period of ac-
tivity of the National Conference
of Jews and Christians. Every-
where now Christian ministers and
.li wish rabbis are fraternizing in
D manner I have been fortunate to
know for twenty years. I am not
-ii much concerned about the past,
however, as I am about the future.
!i will always be a satisfaction to
me to remember that 1 was among
the first, perhaps the very first,
Christian minister to recognize
publicly many things that Jews and
Christians hold in common.

WE are living in a time when
this new friendship experi-
ences its strains. The anti-Semitic
movements around the world make
us in the United States realize that
ua cannot escape similar agita-
tions. Jews and Christians must
have more than sentimentality in
their friendship if it is to survive
these difficult days. No man can
read the history of either group
without realizing that some apolo-
gies for misunderstandings are due
from both. I know the Christians
should kneel to ask the Jews' for-
giveness.
AS I look into the future, I can
think of nothing which is more
ineffective, because it is both poor
taste and offensiveness, than for a
Jew to lecture Christians on their
Christian duty. Unfortunately,
there is likely to be a good deal of
this. Every time I hear it from
a friend among the rabbis, I want
to go to him and say: "My friend,
please do not do that. That is not
the way." The Christians need to
b<' lectured on their Christian du-
ties, but we Christian ministers
must do that. There is enough in
the present world situation to
create in us the same passion and
resentment which the rabbis feel.
CHRISTIANS are indebted to
Jews and Jews are indebted to
Christians. I hope we can succeed
in convincing our American people
in villages and country towns what
the more sympathetic and under-
standing: of the cities have come
1 to see. Attacks on Jews are at-
tacks on religion. Not simply in
Germany, but in other lands as
well, anti-Semitic movements are
anti-religious movements. Jews
and Christians must stand togeth-
er for the defense of religious faith.
'I he days of sentimental approaches
land of pleas for tolerance must be
followed by days of comradeship
in the straggle against unrigh-
teousness. Seminars and confer-
ence discussions arc still of value
ix cause people need more intelli-
gent information. Beyond such dis-
cussions and through them we must
come to a sense of loyalty to one
God.

The "BIoi
Strasbourg
of the
Shofar
AFTER the terrible massacre of
Strasbourg Jewry during those
days when the Black Death was
ivaging Europe, some individuals
who were plundering the syna-
gogue discovered a shofar. One of
the pillagers, not knowing anything
about its use, expressed the opin- ^
ion that the Jews had intended to
.nay the city, and this ram's
horn was to give the signal to their >'
allies outside the walls. Soon ev-
erybody accepted this opinion, and v
the town council resolved that this
fortunate escape of the Strasbourg [_.
community must be remembered. *i
And so two large trumpets, resem- IIIJ
bl ng the shofar, were made out of
bronze. Both were blown daily.
One was sounded at eight in the
evening and was a signal for all
Jews to depart from the city, and
the other was sounded at midnight
and was a reminder to Strasbourg
citizenry of the alleged Jewish plot
to betray the city.
PROM the writings of Judah Al-
Bargeloni, one of the greatest
codifiers Of the Middle Ages, we
learn that in some places it was
the custom, on the second day of
Rosh Hashanah, to read at home
the entire book of Deuteronomy
three times twice in the Hebrew
text and once in the Aramaic trans-
ation.

v his name as Rabbi Jeremiah ben Chochmah De- Fuehrer was in a very good mood that day. having
just received the news that the last Jew had left Ge-many He received Rabbi Chochmah in the sump-
tuous parlor of the Brown House ... I listened at the door to this strange conversation: Said the rabbi:
''' 'You have claimed during all these years that the Aryan race is the greatest and nmst powerful Of man-
kind You. as the leader of the Aryan race, are regarded as the mightiest of all human beings .
'' 1 am a poor old weak rabbi Yet I claim that 1 can defeat you in a duel provided you let mo ohooso the
weapons' Her Schoene Adolf smiled good hum iredly and said: 'I nccept your challenge. What are

will -it on one, I on the other Both of us will b: tightly bound, so that neither of us will be able

"I "ell like Koine: in and throwing this .low ou of the window, but Der Fuehrer, always ready for

:: : i interrupt this session under any circumstanc -. regardless of what might happen and regardless

"I will never forget that night The rabbi, i la solw, solemn voice, began to address Her Fuehrer

him shout: 'How law you, you inferior non-Aryan b ing! I will have you shipped to a concentration

"I am not afraid of you. Without your Brown Shirt and your murderous Gestapo you are small, weak

begged of him to remove to the

not instruct the lads without los-

them.
"Why do we stay here?" she

growing up in ignorance. She felt

relatives had left them, and the

"What shall we do?" her hus-

wealth here, hut at least I earn
something, and what can I do in
the city ?
"What will become of the chil-
dren? See how they are growing
up! After we are gone they won't
know how to say Kaddish, and not
one candle will they light at our
Jahrzeit."
In his heart of hearts the man

the ground that he had some busi-
ness to conclude; and so the time
passed.
Then typhoid fever became epi-
demic in the village and its neigh-
borhood. There were a number of
deaths. Basha was also taken
, with the fever. For a few days
ner illness was not noticed. Yossel
had acquired the peasants' habit;
he believed in preventing the Bick
one lrom taking to bed as long as
possible, to see whether the dis-
i use could not be cured without a
physician. When such a miracle
did not occur an old woman sage
would be called in to speak a charm
and brew some healing beverage.
The old woman Yossel called in
did her best, for she had a deep
affection for Basha, who was
known as a kind hearted woman
among all the peasants. She gave
the invalid a strong concoction
three times daily to induce perspir-
ation, but it did not help. The
sickness took a dangerous turn. [
Yossel aroused himself sufficiently
to go to the city to fetch a doctor,
but just then all the doctors were
extraordinarily busy. He returned
with the promise that the doctor
would come the following day.
When he entered the house he
found Basha dead.
"Hour after hour she called for
you," wailed the old woman. "Why
did you come so late ? She had
something on her mind she wanted
to tell you."
Yossel gazed upon the face of
the dead woman. She seemed to
be asleep, as if her last words were
still hovering about her lipsthe
words she wished to impart to him.
"I forgot to tell you," remarked
the nurse, "the inspector was here
and he said had you come an hour
later she would have been buried
without you. They will not allow
a dead body to remain unburied
for any length of time, on account
of the epidemic."
"I will take her in my wagon to
the city," Yossel decided, stagger-
ing to his feet, as if in a dream.
"Say Tillim, children," he com-
manded his sons, who were weep-
ing in a corner.
A police officer, Yossel's friend,
appeared. "What a calamity has
befallen me!" wailed Yossel to him.
"It is God's will," remarked the
other.
"I must harness a horse and at
once go to the city with her."
"My friend," remarked the oth-
er, "it is forbidden, in such a time,
to carry a corpse so far. We will
find a place for her near our own
cemetery."
"What do you say? She is a
Jewish woman!" stammered Yos-
sel, almost beside himself with
grief.
"It makes no difference; we will
bury her close by," replied the of-
ficer. "I have nothing to do with
it; it is the inspector's order and \
it must be done."
Yossel sought every means in his
power to gain his end, but it was
impossible. He was compelled to
acquiesce.
With the assistance of a brother
in faith, who happened to pass
through the town at that time.
Yossel laid his wife to rest in a
trench near the Christian ceme-
tery.
After that he could not recall
whether it was night or day; there
was a desert in his heart; the world
was full of confusion. While she
lived he did not value her at her
real worth, in spite of his love lor
her. Now that she had left him
forever, he felt that she had taken
with her the very light and warmth
of his life.
Time passed. Yossel's sons be-
came sturdy young men; they were
no more afraid of their father.
After his wife's death Yossel's
strength seemed to ooze away. He '
let things take their course. His '
sons took tile business into their
own hands. Every day widened
the breach between them, and the

"Yes, yes; great sons; but what

OUR DESTINY
In a higher than their literal

true. Our destinyour spiritual
destinyare written down on New
Year's Di.y, and sealed on the Day
of Atonement. We write it down
in the penitence with which we
greet the dawn of the year, we seal
it with the amendment which we
solemnly vow on the Fast of Kip-
pur. The time for penitence is
with us; the Past with its su-
preme task awaits us. Let our
endeavors to see ourselves as we
really are. our sorrow for our
shortcomings, the unrest of our un-
shriven soul, prepare us for the li-

and loving obedience. We shall
begin to live at last, to live before
Him, to live the true life which is
inspired by the constant thought
of His presence.

may be hissed forth by one living
in Rome to one living in Syria."
In striking contrast, the highest
praise is showered upon him who
eschews perjury and false evi-
dence as the greatest contaminat-
ing vices. Among the qualities
enumerated in the fifteenth Psalm
the most concise description of
the perfect manthat render a
man worthy to inhabit God's tent
is "he that uttereth not calumny
with his tongue."
Not only do Jewish codes mete
out dire penalties on the false wit-
ness. Similar condemnation is
found in the law books of all the
ancient well-regulated states. In
Athens, the false witness was liable
to a heavy fine and if convicted
thrice for the same offense, lost
all civil rights. In Rome, by a
law of the Twelve Tablets, he was
hurled headlong from the Tarpeian
Rock. In Egypt, he was punished
by the amputation of nose and
ears. In the Babylonian code of
Hammurabi, severe punishments

it leads inevitably from Jerusalem

an avenue of escape; it was taken

Heine for the sake of a career, and
was selected for Disraeli for the
same purpose. Many Jews have
concealed their identities behind
the screen of masquerade and eva-
sion. But such Jews were always
afraid of the moment when masks
would be removed and identities
revealed. The results were trag-

over his fate, wrote, "I regret very
deeply that I had myself baptized.
I do not see that I have been the

SOCIAL JUSTICE AMONG JEWS
WHEN contemporary preachers
first began to deal concretely
with economic and social problems,
they were criticized by some on the
ground that these problems were
not the concern of religion, that at
best, this was a new field of reli-
gious activity. But such criticism
was both ignorant and biased. I
do not think it necessary to bela-
bor you with quotations from the
Bible and Talmud to prove that in
the past Judaism has regularly
concerned itself with the problems
of social justice. We will take
that for granted.
But it may be asked: How far
has Jewish tradition gone in this
direction? Has it contented itself
with enunciating general moral
principles? Or has it dealt spe-
cifically with individual problems?
Have its methods been purely in-
spirational and hortatory? Has it
utilized only the technique of moral
suasion? Or has it sought to im-
pose authority in solving social
questions?
THE starting point in answer-
ing these inquiries must be, of
course, the work of the prophets.
They not only laid the basis of our
spiritual and universal conception
of God, but they made an insep-
arable union of religion with mor-
ality, including social morality.
These teachers did not confine
themselves to general pronounce-
ments about social justice. They
attacked the particular social
abuse of their day. Amos de-
nounces the exploitation of the
poor; the taking of clothing as a
pledge for trifling loans; the sale
of grain unfit for human use; false
weights and measures; judicial cor-
ruption. Isaiah deals concretely
with the evil resulting from the
concentration of property in the
hands of a few: "Woe to them that
join house to house, that lay field
to field, till there be no room and
ye be made to dwell alone in the
midst of the land!" He attacks
the situation even though the evic-
tions and the foreclosures may
have been perfectly legal. He and
other prophets also thunder against
the ostentatious luxury of the
wealthy classes, who are indiffer-
ent to the methods whereby all this
comfort and beauty is paid for. We
know also that Isaiah and several
of his successors tried to influence
the foreign policies of the nation
in accordance with the religious
principles. And most remarkable
is Jeremiah's protest- Against a
very cynical act of the nation,
when a promise to set free slaves
of Jewish birth was quickly broken.
IN the generations that followed,
, the social ideals of the proph-
ets were gradually translated into
laws; and the authority of the
community was put behind them.
I shall mention some of the more
important social laws: I shall not
include enactments to protect life,
property and order, for such are
necessary to any organized group
life. Nor shall I include more eth-
ical preachments found in the law,
such as "Ye shall not oppress the
stranger"; for these, however ex-
cellent, are like the preachments
of the prophets, without legal au-
thority.
AFTER eliminating both these
classifications, we still find in
the Bible many laws that reflect
a progressive social viewpoint.

WE FACE ANOTHER NEW YEAR
A New Year Message
By BORIS SCHI.ACHM AN
Executive Director Miami V. M. H. A.
A^ain we face another .New
Year. With it we again face a new
situation in the ever changing
world. Never have we had so try-
ing a test of out-
Jewish loyalty.
Never has the
youth of our
people been con-
fronted with a
decision they
must make and
cannot a v o i d.
Nationally and
i n t ernationally
organiza tions
are striving not
merely to dis-
place, but to de-
stroy us. It must
not lie. It shall
not be.
We Jews have
a heritage of
great value to
the world. We
personallj
the powei ntribution.
We can, if heig hten the
happim -- t umanity and en-
hanc and a ilization.
For these things we must per-
ils! BH : : ail. It is not >..->.
It i- painfully difficult. But we
shall convert our obstacles into
opportunities. This we shall do
with the determination of religious
devotion, national and spiritual
c o n s ciousness
with the per-
sistence of a
principled piety.
With God and
the history of a
sell" sacrificing
people as our in-
spiration w e
shall not falter.
With hope as
i in- stimulus we
shall not fail.
Let this be
t h e aspiration
ami the effort
of every Jew in
American life.
I e '. the un-
Americanism of
an Kdmondson
or a True, let
the emulation oa
their part of the despicable and
unmentionable Hitler urge us on
to realize the longing need of our
brethren everywhere and by our
low of humanity throughout the
universe.
With this I gladly greet all Jews,
wherever they may be.
field- and orchards; and a certain
amount of grain had to be left un-
cut in the corners of the fields for
them. The unfilled growth in the
Sabbatical year and the so-called
tithe of the poor wen' also guar-
anteed to the needy. These pro-
visions are over and above the
voluntary charity which the Torah
repeatedly enjoins: in addition to
the benefactions of generous in-
dividuals, the poor were legally
entitled to certain minimum dues.
THE great legal structure of the
Talmud is marked by a defi-
nitely religious as well as an ab-
stractly leiral viewpoint; and much
of the Rabbinic law is strikingly
progressive, even for today. In
the Talmudic period, charity was
made systematic; and both the
collection and distribution of money
were put into the hands of re-
sponsible officials. These men hac
tiie authority to attach the prop-
erly of those who refused to con-
tribute in accordance with their
ability. The law even specifies the
length of time that may elapse
after a man settles in a community
before he becomes liable for his
shares of the charity tax. The
recipients of charity are safe-
guarded by elaborate regulations,
designed to protect their morale
as well as their physical welfare;
for instance, the Talmud states the
minimum amount of relief that
must be given to a transient
beggar.
ANOTHER feature of Talmudic
Halakah is a remarkable se-
ries of laws, extending over a pe-
riod of centuries, for the protec-
tion of women. Whereas the
older law left the woman almost
without legal rights and financi-
ally dependent on her father, hus-
band, or other male relatives, the
Rabbinic legislation gave her an
increasingly larger measure of
material and moral independence.
These laws are, however, too in-
volved for me even to summai iz i
now.
THE TALMUD likewise contains
interesting regulations about
fair practices in business. Mis-
representation of goods must be
strictly avoided; wares are not to
be tricked out artfully to make
them appear better than they are.
Adulterated or diluted products
may be sold at retail if the truth
about them is told to the pur-
chaser, but we may not sell them
to another merchant, who we may
assume is not honest in his motives.
Some authorities even condemn
giving premiums to children and
price-cutting as unfair competi-

Social Justice
Among Jews
(Continued from Page 2'.')
First, blood revenge was pro-
hibited, and qpuns were estab-
lished to distinguish between de-
liberate and accidental homicides;
those who inadvertently caused the
death of another were protected
from the vengeance of the vic-
tim's family. When you consider
that blood revenge was once an in-
stitution as sacred as is the insti-
tution of private property today,
you will realize the revolutionary
character of this Biblical legisla-
tion. Second, the Torah contains
several laws designed to limit slav-
ery. A slave of Jewish birth could
be held in servitude for a maxi-
mum of six years; he was, in fact,
an indentured servant rather than
his master's property. It was also
provided that if a brutal slave
owner does physical injury to a
slaveknocks out a tooth, for ex-
ample, the slave automatically ac-
quires his freedom. (The Rabbis
say this provision applies to non-
Jewish slave-.) Further, a run-
away slave is not to be returned
to his masteraccording to the
Rabbis; even if the slave is Gentile
and the master Jewish, this law is
applicable.
THE BIBLE also protects the
free laborer: It strictly for-
bids the employer to hold back the
daily wage of a workman, or even
a part thereof. Loans secured by
pledges are regulated: utensils
used in preparing food cannot be
pledged; clothing may be held by ,
the creditor as a pledge only for '
a day at a timeat nightfall it
must be returned to the debtor.
And when such a loan is made, the
lender may not enter the poor
man's dwelling to select the ob-
ject he will take as security; thus
the borrower is spared humiliation.
Biblical law forbids the taking of
interest from a fellow-Jew; and
there was a periodical cancellation
of debts every seventh year.
THE TORAH also provides for
the indigent. At harvest time
they had a legal right to glean in

THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN
Page Thirty-one
A VITAL JEWISH FACTOR
By MILTON A. FRIEDMAN
..I
Slowly but surely coming to the
fore, not by political intrigue or
machinations, but by force of its
value as a potent influence in
Jewish life, are the B'Nai B'Rith
Lodges of the State of Florida. An
integral part of District No. 5, we
feel it safe to assume that no area
in this district has overcome much
of the handicap it has been labor-
ing under and making such strides
as are Florida Lodges.
Perhaps most effective and set-
ting the stride for the entire state
is Sholem Lodge of B'nai B'rith,
taking in the Greater Miami area.
At its head is Isaac Levin, who de-
spite his manifold other communal
activities is an active example of
what a president should be. As-
sociated with him as the vice presi-
dent is Nathan Adelman, another
Miamian active in communal af-
fairs. These two, Levin a vice
president of the Reform Congre-
gation and Adelman head of the
Orthodox Synagogue, are living ex-
amples of the common meeting
ground afforded.
With a membership in excess of
two hundred and fifty, a gain of
nearly one hundred per cent in the
past year, Miami Lodge is proud '
of such men as Louis Gordon, who !
despite his illness is ever on the '
job; Elry Stone, quiet but enev- '
getic secretary; William Friedman,
its treasurer; Milton Friedman,'
now heading its Students Activity
work and numerous others whom
space will not permit naming.
High lights in the past year's
work was the determined stand to
ever be on guard against the
slightest indications of anti-Semi-
tic and un-American activities.
When the notorious Jew baiter,
Gerald Winrod, attempted to use
the schools of the city for his ne-
III
farious purposes it was a delega-
tion composed wholly of B'nai
B'rith members who protested
vigorously to the school board and
who succeeded in having the fur-
ther use of the schools prohibited
to Winrod and his ilk. Effective
intervention on the part of a
B'nai B'rith member resulted in
the withdrawal of five hundred
dollars pledged by Florida to the
Olympic fund. Quietly and very
effectively signs posted on apart-
ment houses "Gentile Only" are
being withdrawn at the insistence
of the B'nai B'rith Lodge. Re-
cently Station WIOD, one of the
largest in this area, pledged that
"Gentiles Only" would not be used
when advertising properties for
sale or rent.
In relief and social work, it was
B'nai B'rith under Henry Nadel-
weiss and his fellow workers who
raised a substantial sum for the
Key sufferers which was given to
the Red Cross committee. Funds
were raised for the Jewish Welfare
Bureau, the Leo N. Levi Memorial
Hospital and other charitable in-
stitutions.
Socially, the women helped in
making the picnic, social meetings
and similar events a factor in help-
ing the Lodge gain deserved popu-
larity. One of the events of the
year was the banquet at the Hotel
Evans honoring District President
Abe Shefferman and Vice President
Hyman S. Jacobs. Congressman
Wilcox was one of the guests of
honor. Installation of officers
with Sam Goldstein of West Palm
Beach, district representative, as
installing officer was another gala
event.
At present the Miami Lodge is
one of the potent factors in mak-
ing itself and Judaism felt in the
life of the Jewish student body at
the State University at Gaines-
ville. Miami Lodge has already
pledged $250 towards this move-
ment. When effected, it will be
the means of establishing a minia-
ture Hillel Foundation at the Uni-
versity, bringing home to the sev-
eral hundred Jewish students the
beauties and importance of Jew-
ish life, customs and traditions. An
outstanding and noteworthy fact
is that the actual work is being
I done by laymen, who will ask the
Rabbis to assist with lectures, etc.
| Milton Friedman of Miami is be-
ing helped by representatives of
other Florida lodges.
Adult education in matters Jew-
ish is another goal which the Mi-
ami Lodge is setting for itself and
which will shsortly begin to see
definite form. Thus Miami Lodge
is becoming a vital force in Jewish
life.
Not to be outdone, Tampa Lodge,
under the able guidance of such
men as the well known and uni-
versally respected Judge M. Henry
Cohen, is making itself felt as a
factor in the general life of Tampa
Jewry. Beginning with the installa-
tion last November when Vice
President Hyman S. Jacobs and
Sam Goldstein of West Palm Beach,
assisted by officers from Orlando,
including B. J. Cohen, activities in-
cluded social events, a well-attend-
ed meeting addressed by the Dis-
trict President Abe Shefferman,
dances, bridges, musicales and
similar events. In the social serv.
ice field the Tampa Lodge ren-
dered yeoman service when it as-
sisted the National Council of Jew-
ish Women in immigration work.
Much work of a constructive nat-
ure, though quiet, was effective

I was looking for good fighters

but Pinkus wouldn't leave until I
let him have his way. So I finally
told him he could bring his cham-
pion around the next day.
Pinkus made the guy come by
telling him he could make more
dough for the "Yeshivah" as a
t boxer than the ordinary "bettling"
way.
The first time he came to the
, club he almost caused a riot. When
I laid eyes on him I understood

his head. He had a small red
beard; and a funny-looking, round
fur hat, a "stremel," with wide
brim.
He didn't understand much Eng-

talk plain "mama losshen" to him.
We had a terrible time getting
him to disrobe. I kept telling
Pinkus he was crazy for ever hav-
ing thought of putting a guy like
that in the ring. But he kept argu-

much cash he was going to make
as a fighter. Bratzlav couldn't fig-

any money from hitting another
guy around. Whe we told him peo-
ple paid money to see boxers fight,
he s;iid Americans must be "messh-

bareheaded. So he had himself
made a special "koppel" with a
piece of elastic that came under
his chin and kept his head covered
all the time. And on top of his irym
shirt he always wore his "talis
katon," with lonjr woolen "tzitzis."
And hi.- "payees" dangled around
like springs with every move he
made.
He drew a crowd just by the
way he looked in his outfit.
Well, we put one of the trainers
in the ring with him; and just

cause Pinkus kept jabber ng
I wanted to keep him in training
for a longer period; but he and
Pinkus were in too much of a
hurry to get the dough.
He almost lost his first engage-
ment. He fasted the day before the
fight; that was his way of asking
God for a victory. But in the fifth
round he gives his opponent a
taste of his "salami slam" and the
fight was over.
Before each contest he fought
in, he'd take his gloves to a "rebbe"
on the East Side to have them
blessed by the holy man.
The nearest Slabodka Sam ever
got to the championship was his
fight with some

home early and told Pinkus to see
'to it that he got to bed early in
time to get a nice long sleep. He
comes to the club the day of the
fight all groggy. He hadn't slept
a wink. He'd found some old
"yeshivah" pal, some fella who
used to go to Slabodka with him,
and they spent the night trying
to finish up some argument about
a certain part of the Talmud. This
argument had started some two
years before and it wasn't finished
that night either. I'll bet they're
still arguing about it somewhere
in Europe right now.

jA4*'Mumr{u^*s''f,x
WOT LONG AGO I was present at a lecture on a
1" great Jewish personality. The lecturer was
young, and this is how he spoke: "The striking
thing was his Jewishness. ... He worked thus
because of his Jewishness. And his Jewishness
rose up within him. People spurned him be-
cause of his Jewishness. ... He tried to rebel against
Jewishness. ." The word "Jewishness" was used
every now and then, and each time with but the
vaguest notion of its meaning.
And they all do itall these bright young debon-
air speakers who are rising in our midst. They all
use the word as though the mere fact of being born
a Jew constituted, without any responsibility at-
taching to the subject, the prerogative of member-
ship of some strange aristocracy among men.
Therefore it is fitting that we should sit down
together, you and I, and ask ourselves seriously:
"What IS Jewishness?"
II
CLEARLY it must mean some characteristic or
group of characteristics born of national con-
ditioning. But how does national conditioning
fashion such characteristics? Perhaps in many-
ways; but mainly through the process of history;
and it is in the history of the Hebrew people dur-
ing the past three thousand years that we must
search for the diverse forces that have fashioned
this quality of Jewishness.
A great student of history, Winwood Reade, wrote
in his book, "The Martyrdom of Man," these pene-
trating words:
"When Nature selects a people to endow them
with glory and with wealth, her first proceeding
is to massacre their bodies; her second, to debauch
their minds. She begins with famine, pestilence
and war; next, force and rapacity above; chains
but whom the fortune hunter learns afterwards to
love for herself alone."
The Hebrew people went through such a pain-
ful evolution as Winwood Reade describes. They,
in the early years of their national existence, suf-
fered famine and pestilence and war; they, too,
knew chains and slavery; and they, not merely in
years, but throughout the course of their persist-
ence, had force and rapacity directed against them
still have, indeed, today. In the case of the
Hebrew people. Nature has not been over-hasty to
wash her black and bloody hands,
and slavery below. She uses evil as the raw mate-
rial of good; though her aim is always noble, her
earliest means are base and cruel. But, as soon
as a certain point is recahed, she washes her black
and bloody hands, and uses agents of a higher kind.
Having converted the animal instinct of self-
defense into the ravenous lust of wealth and power,
that also she transforms into ambition of a pure
and lofty kind. At first knowledge is sought only
for the things which it will buy, the daily bread
indispensable to life; and those trinkets of body
and mind which vanity demands. Yet these low
desires do not always and entirely possess the
human soul. Wisdom is like the heiress of the
novel who is at first courted only for her wealth,
And yet in their case, too, she has used evil as
the raw material of good. For persecution, more
than anything else, has been, however ironically,
the moulding influence and preserving force of
Jewish life. Persecution refined the Hebrew people
from a primitime herd to a nation that bestowed
great gifts on men. Before the Jews were subjected
to "the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune"
they were a rabble mob of barbarian tribes, ranging
the countryside for plunder. It was the persecu-
tion of Biblical times which first made a people of
them unifying the tribes into an harmonious whole
and purging that whole by a long and painful
process, of its barbarism and savagery. It was
persecution which sired their Judaism, the cherished
fount and inspiration of their lives; and it was
persecution which mellowed that Judaism, taking
it beyond the bounds of mere religion to a philoso-
phy and a manner of life.
Persecution was the most pointed and constant
influence in Jewish life: and persecution called into
being a multitude of deep reactions. There was
fear, because the presecuted live in constant danger,
there was a strengthening of pride and obstinancy,
must, in very protection, bee,,me humble and >\eld-
ing of the moral and ethical code of the race. In-
there was a strengthening of pride tnd obstinancy,
a feeling of resentment against the persecutors an.I
a determination to persist with a certain way of
life at all costs.
There was both a strengthening and a weaken-
ing of the moral and ethical code of the rtce. In-
ternally this code grew stronger because people who
are oppressed know how utterly dependent they
are upon one another; they come to realize with
poignant force the fundamental necessity for the
fidelity of man to man.

You may thank your life, so prec-

soil,
Who as heroes gained their free-
dom, for your sake, from slav-
ish toil.
And if any king or noble boasts to
you in haughty pride,
Quietly to bis tale do listen, you
of all the proudest knights.
.Many hundred years have vanished
while your race has fought for
life,
On the battlefields, in dungeons,
and the hardest was their
strife.
Not the Persian, glory-covered,
not the Roman's mighty arm,
Not the Spaniard, not the others
ever could their purpose harm.
Therefore, you, you son of ages,
and you daughter, thoughtfu',
mild,
Well may modest pride adorn you,
you of freedom happy child.
In thy eyes I see them toiling, on
the borders of the Nile,
And I see them suffering horrors
when accused by lies so vile.
And I see the golden sunshine
gloaring on the hills with
wine,
All the dreams of those before you,
I see in the eyes of thine.

a very important one, the organ,
which has two namesthe ugav

\\':th -the exception of the saxo-
phone, modern symphonic orches-
tras have nothing to boast about
in the variety of instruments whicn
they employ today. With such an
assortment of musical instruments
one can well believe in the exist-
ence of a great symphonic body
during Israel's reign.
To quote a passage from Chron-
icles 1. Chapter 23, "And 4,000
praised the Lord with instruments
which I made, said David, to praise
Thee with" Think of it, an
orchestra of 1,000 musicians. I
doubt whether such a great body
of instrumentalists have since bee.i
employed for any purpose, to say
the least for a religious fete.
Israel's history of organized song
begins with the Sacred Song. In
the Chapter 80 of Isaiah we find
the following sentence: "Ye shall
have a song, as in the night when
a hdly solemnity is kept." And
the Prophet Amos cries out aloud: j
"Take thou away from me the i
noise of thy songs, for 1 will not
hear the melody of thy violins."
Prom this we may gather that vo-
cal and instrumental music were
both employed during the services
in ancient Israel.
Next to the Sacred Souk came
the military music, for in those
days ii was a necessary requisite
in warlike exploits. When Jehosh-
afat went to battle against the
hosts of Ammon and Moab, he
placed a choir of singers in front
of his army. Both instrumental
and vocal music calso played an
important part in the battles of
Jericho and Kiddeon.
The Triumphal Song followed the
synans
Love songs are also alluded to
in the Psalms. In Isaiah we find:
"How I will sing to my well be-
loved, a song of my beloved touch-
ing his vineyard."
The popular Secular Songs were

Our Way
To Escape
By RABBI MAX SHAPIRO
(Continued from Pajro 28)
of conversion was not a way to
escape. It brought no peace; it
led to mental struggle and turmoil
of soul!
This way of false identity is a
snare and a delusion; it is the way
to ruin. WE CANNOT AND
DARE NOT ESCAPE THE DES-
TINY OF ISRAEL! Gabriel Reis-
ser was a cultured Jew of the last
century. He lived in Germany and
edited a magazine devoted to Jew-
ish life and letters. He called his
journal "Der Jade" (the Jew). And
the story is related that one of
the Vienna Rothschilds offered
Riesser a handsome subsidy if he
would change the name of his jour-
nal. Riesser replied, "We laugh
at our fathers because they
changed their names when they
fell sick in order to deceive the
angel of death. But aren't we do-
ing the same thing, do we not call
ourselves Nationalists of Israelit-
ish persuasion?" The way of mas-
querade ia a way of self-deception.
There is a third way, and it is
not the Way of Escape from our
people, Israel, but the way to es-
cape all prejudices and self-decep-
tions by leading ourselves sincere-
ly and religiously back to our God,
Torah, and People. When hatred
is most intense and persecution
most severe, Jews do return to Ju. j
daism and their people. Perhaps
this helps to explain the enigma of
Jewish survival. Theodore Herzl
had the Jew in mind when he,
wrote: "A nation is, to my mind,1
an historical group of people held
together by a common enemy."
History does not repeat itself, |
but historical situations are often
similar. Dreyfus was the scape-
goat of French militarism and
Herzl, who was covering the trial
as reporter, found his Jewish con-
sciousness awakened. Walter Rath-
enau, the Jewish minister of for-
eign affairs in post-war Germany,
was assassinated by an anti-Se-
mitic ruffian, and Emil Ludwig,
the biographer, who had been in-
-different to Judaism, wrote, "I feel
more deeply bound to my race
since it is being persecuted anew
in my native land." Georg Brandes,
the eminent Danish critic, became
a stout defender of Jewish rights
when the Poles whom he had cham-
pioned sneered at his Jewish ori-
gin. In our own country, the most
prominent traveler on the way back
to our people is Ludwig Lewisohn;
social and academic discrimination
restored him to our ranks.
All these men whose names I
have mentioned were drifting from
Judaism. They were running away
from their people, Israel. They
were seeking a way to escpae. But
they learned in seeking to run
away from their people, they
sought to run away from them-
selves. Only when they turned
back to their people were they hon-
est with themselves.
Judaism never turned away the
man who said, "I feel as a Jew
when my brethren are being per-
secuted." It applied the principle
that "Yisroel af al pi shechoto Yis-
roel hu," though an Israelite has
gone astray, he remains an Israel-
ite. Emil Ludwig and Ludwig Lew-
isohn, Herzl and Brandes were wel-
comed back to our faith; but Ju-
daism esteems all the more high-
ly the man who says, "I feel I am
an ardent Jew, even when my
brethren are not being persecut-
ed." That is the supreme test of
Jewish loyaltyfidelity to the
Jewish religious life at all times
making it voluntary and not corn-
Page Forty-one
pulsory. And the whole story of
Jewish martyrdom is the glorious.
record of hundreds of thousands |
of men and women who devoted
themselves to that Jewish life and
would not relinquish it even in
death. That is the incontrovert-
ible testimony of Jewish martyrs
in Palestine, of Jewish slaves in
Rome, or of Marranos in Spain.
That is why Mayence, Toledo or
Nemirov were flooded with Jewish
tears and skies were crimsoned
with the flames of those who died
Al Kiddush Ha-Shem. There is
only one way to escape for the
Jew. It is the only way to tra-
verse, fellow Jews of Miami, and
let us join hands together in peace,
harmony and love.

"To be inscribed in the book of

a spiritual sense. When a man
clings to the love of God and, put-

takes upon himself the yoke of the
Kingdom of Heavenhe therewith
inscribes himself in the Book of
Life. Whereas the man, a slave
to his passions, who so loses his
belief in the all-embracing love
of God that he fails to repent and
return to his Father in Heaven,
this despairing of the love of God
is equivalent to his being inscribed

Death.

Let us not pursue the subject any
further. We must not be tempted,
in this season of hope and peace,
to utter the curse that, humanly
speaking, may be deserved. Peace

Polish brethrenmay God cause
their enemies to relent. By our
combined efforts can we hope to

with a prayer that Israel may b
sayed in our day and all the world
may appreciate the full reality of
Godjust as the Almighty is One,
by the same token all humanity i
one. And to all Israel, I express
my heartiest "Sennas Li-alter
L'Chayim Tovim."
Slabodka Sam
(Continued from Page 34)
made him uncertain of himself.
He couldn't work his "salami
slam" on this Poison Pat; the
Irishman got out of the way every
time. At the end of the ninth
round, Sam's nose was bleeding,
his "talis katon" was torn in seven
places, his "koppel" was gone and
he didn't even notice it. I felt
like throwing in the sponge; but
Pinkus wouldn't let me. "Let him
go one round more," he says; and
he was crying, too.
In the tenth round this Poison
Pat decides the fight's in the bag
and so he starts to tease Sam. And
the house begins yelling for a
knockout. The dumb "goy" thinks
he'll play a bit with Sam before
he puts him to sleep. And so he
says to him: "Who ever told you,
you was a boxer, you big ham,
you!" When Slabodka Sam hears
that, he wakes up like from a
dream and say to Pat, pointing to
himself, "Meham?" And Pat
laughs, "Ya, you! you ham!"
By now Sam is angry as a bull.
He gives a nasty grunt and growls:
"Pahskood-nyak, du einer!"; he
lowers his head and rushes right
up to Pat with both arms crossed
over his chest and lets lose two
"salami slams." The right missed,
but the left hit Pat on the side of
the head and sent him through the
ropes, and the fight was over.
That was Slabodka Sara's last
battle.
Why did he quit the ring? Well,
he thought he made enough money
for the Yeshiva already; and he
was getting homesick for the old
country; so he went back.
And so Slabodka Sam with his
"salami slam" disappeared from
boxing forever.
Jewish Music In
Days of Long Ago
(Continued from Page 40)
also in abundance in Israel's home
and in its economic life, for does
not Isaiah exclaim: "And gladness
is taken away and joy out of the
plentiful field, and there shall be
no singing in the vineyards; neith-
er shall there be shouting."
There were also numerous Con-
vivial Songs, and merry dances
entertainment for the guests at
banquets and other social festiv-
ities.
Historical facts are especially
remarkable for the healing power
and application of music in the
cure of nervous disorders. When
King Saul became afflicted with
attacks of nervous malady, it was
David who took up the harp and
played for him, alleviating the
king's sufferings.
From these few statements we
may assume that both instrumen-
tal and vocal music were as popu-
lar in ancient Judeah as at the
present. A short time after the
destruction of the temple the in-
strumental music of the Levis fell
into oblivion and the technical
knowledge of it was totally lost to
the ages.
The vocal music, however, the
intonations of the Psalms and the
Pentateuch as well as the recita-
tions of the prayers, were retained
and transplanted into the syna-
gogue which was established long
before the destruction of the sec-
ond temple. After the complete
destruction of the National Center
in Palestine the remnants of Judah
were scattered. The Israelites
were dispersed throughout the an-
cient world from Persia to the
northwest of Africa, from Arabia
to Rose, and as far as the Pyrenean
peninsula, the Rhine and the Dan-
ube. Weary and footsore, hounded
from land to land over the far-
spreading surface of the earth,
even over the surface of the wa-
ters; the Israelite has never for-
saken the law, nor forgotten his
songs. Wherever he tarried he
reared his synagogue for study and
prayer. In the darkest night of
our anguish, in the most raptur-
ous moments of joy, there has un-
ceasingly sounded from the syna-
gogue the traditional chant, inter-
preting the spirit of the people.
And to this day the old synagogue
is the storehouse of our traditional

Fulfill His deep intention?
Or is the whole great hurrying

Or has He not some aim beside
Creating for destruction?
I ask, and know not even who
Can give the interpretation
erse is but

All human life is but a span
When will my own be setting?
Who needs me while I am still
My death who'll be regretting The entire anive

The sky would not a single whit
Its azure color banish;
The stars indifferently would shine,
And they are evanescent

Perplexed, I often ask: what is

That in its changing attitudes,
Itself it never alters?

Both life and death are flowing,
And, though at rest Himself, Hi-

SHALL WE BE OURSELVES
At the beginning: of another milestone in our lives we
are attain confronted by the ever recurring problem that has
confronted and will ever confront us if we are to remain our-
selves simply Jews.
In Florida as in the rest of the world we have been con-
cerned not alone with our own problems but with the prob-
lems of our fellow Jews throughout the entire Diaspora. When
the Jew suffers in Poland, when he is persecuted in Germany,
threatened in other parts of the world, we Jews as one con-
cerned with the fate of the other, must necessarily stop to
think.
True we have done and are doing our bit. though by no
means what we should, to alleviate by monetary contributions,
the lot of our suffering brethern. That we in Florida, and
particularly in Greater Miami have been sanly defficient in
our duty in this respect cannot be denied. Yes. large sums
of money have been raised. But. may we ask. whose money
has that been? What about the average every day business-
man, or professional man? Is it not true that the great
majority of these have never answered the call of their fel-
low men.
More important perhaps, and a problem that must be
solved, is that of those Floridians who are Jews only and
when it may cause them to shine in the limelight of publicity,
or when they want to impress their non-Jewish friends with
their importance in some political sense. In the past year we
have had the sad experiences of men proposing to control the
so-called Jewish vote the self-same men who when any
communal duty of any nature. Jewish or non-Jewish is to be
done, are always, eternally absent.
How about those of our Jews, whenever any question of
asserting the inherent self-respect that every Jew as such and
as an American citizen should possess, become "Ma Yofis"
Jews and cringe, and bow in shame, when they should be
asserting their manliness and decency. These self-same in-
dividuals, who are too eager whether asked or not to rush
to officials or to others to tell them "pay no attention to what j!
these Jews are saying, it means nothing." Whet, protests |P
against helping the Olympic teams were taken up. it was'l
Jews of this ilk who slinkingly and fawningly belied the very p
decency they were supposed to possess. .

It is with pride that we are happy to note a change on
the part of Miami and Florida Jewry. They with the passing
of time are beginning to realize their duty to themselves and
their fellow men. Not by fawning but by resolutely, honestly
and courageously asserting their rights as Jews and Ameri-
cans. Much may be attributed to the example's shown by the
Sholem Lodge of Bnai Brith in numerous instances where the
slightest traces of anti-Semitism began to exhibit its nefari-
ous purposes.
If we are to learn a lessson. if we are to profit by history
then we as Jews must realize that we can earn the respect
of our fellow men by being ourselves that we can retain
our own respect by living our own lives .... that we can
contribute more to the progress of humanity, of decent living,
if we honestly carry out the principles and practices so
splendidly set forth by our own codes or ethics and clean
livings. Shall we be ourselves? The hand of fate has so de-
creed. Why shall we challenge that .... what have we to
gain .... The answer cannot be controverted .... WE
SHALL BE OURSELVES.

The Year In Human Relations
Less Bickering and Back-Biting and More Co-Operation
Characterized Protestant, Catholic and Jewish
Relationships, Says Dr. Clinchy
By EVERETT R. CLINCHY
Director, The National Conference of Jews and Christians
The past year has furnished
abundant testimony to the prog-
ress of the movement for whole-
seme relations among; Roman
Catholics Jews and Protestants in
America. Surveying the scene,
one finds there was less bickering
and back-biting and more co-opera-
tion. Child patterns in interfaith
relationships are giving way to
the mature attitudes of more civ-
ilized folkways, despite vital dif-
ferences and conflicts of ideas.
One sees, for example, a change
in the Sunday school lessons being
used this year. Congregational,
Methodist, Presbyterian and Epis- |
copalian textbooks in religious
schools are noticeably different.
Twenty-five years ago Catholics
and Jews were ignored or else
mentioned simply to contrast the \
allegedly superior position of
Protestant churches. Not so, now. I
Fair play is taught. Appreciation |
of Judaism and Jews is part of the J
curriculum. At the same time
American Jewish religious schools
are conscientiously striving to in-
culcate appreciative ideas about
contemporary Christianity and
Christians, in substitute for dis-
torted mental stereotypes of
goyim, imported from Europe.
The current practices in many
public schools give further evi-
dence that Americans are coming i
of age in human relationships.
Numerous high schools are pre-
senting at assembly period the
contribution of world-wide cul-
tures to American life, and Jews,
Catholics and Protestants play a
part in that scenario. Again, the
instances are multiplying wherein
a priest, a rabbi and a minister
appear together on high school
platforms.
This custom accomplishes three
objects. First, it leaves an indel-
ible picture in children's minds of
believers of three faiths standing
together as American comrades.
Seeond, it affords opportunities to
dear up many misconceptions
about the three groups. One day
a few months ago in Dos Moines,
Iowa, it developed that in prac- |
tically every classroom during the
period following such an assembly
presentation the teachers and
pupils fell into informal discus-
sion of some idea or other aroused
by this truly American program
at convocation. Thiid, it pro-
vokes a fire type of patriotism, a
patriotism we mean that prompts
citizens of all parties, interests,
occupations and faiths to mobilize
for common tasks.
Neither in the church schools
nor in the public schools is this
development sloppily sentimental.
While it la designed to rid young-
sters of socially inherited antipa-
thies it teaches them to expect
friendly clashes of ideas and tradi-
tions. It attempts to bring peace
in Christian and Jewish relations,
but promises battle against foes
common to Catholics Jews ana
Protestants alike. The past year
has witnessed significant gains in
that direction.
Further, during the yar, con-
siderable adult learning in human
relations was achieved. Much of
the progress emerged directly or
indirectly from the Williamstown
Institute of Human Relations i.i
1935. Williamstown crystallizej
much that friends of the National
Conference of Jews and Christians
had been thinking. It expressed
in more orderly fashion a great
deal of what we had been saying.
It focused and redirected much
that we had been doing. By way
of summary let us note some major
outcomes from Williamstown:
1. Publication in 1930 of "The
American Way," a small, interest-
ing, readable book which presents
the best that is being thought and
done in the field of intercultural
relations in the United States
today, together with what we can
learn from what is going on in
other parts of the world. It io
full of suggestions for local com-
munities interested in promoting
wholesome relations among the
religious and racial groups that
make up our commonwealth. It
has carried the message of the
Williamstown Institute across the
country.
2. Brotherhood Day (the week-
end nearest Washington's birth-
day) was observed far more widely
this year and more variously than
in either of the two previous years
since it was initiated. By services
in church and synagogue, public
meetings of a community nature,
radio addresses, sometimes in se-
ries extending over several weeks,
appropriate dramatic presentations
and by other methods which local
ingenuity and initiative has do-
vised, a notable piece of popular
education has been done. The ad-
dress of President Roosevelt over
a nation-wide hookup on Brother-
li-od, with Gen. Charles Q. Dawes,
Protestant; Michael Francis Doyle,
Catholic, and Dr. Cyrus Adler,
Jew, carried the principle of co-
operation for common social aims
and for common religious emphasis
into every city and hamlet of the
land.
3. In several communities the
program of Williamstown in its
essence was reproduced in what
was denominated a "Willamstown
in Miniature." Leaders of the i
three faiths presented the salient
issues presented at Williamstown
in sessions confined to a single day
and the addresses and discussions
were found to be most profitable.
This is a technique that should be
widely used and is adaptable to
conditions in every part of the
country. It suggests a fine project
for the coming fall and winter.
4. The 1936 nation-wide pil-
grimage by a priest, minister and
rabbis (note the plural, for the
priest and minister went on for
two months, but five rabbis were
worn out before the circle was

completed!). This pilgrimage trav-
eled over 10,000 miles spreading
the message of amity between the
various faiths. The team con-
ducted hundreds of meetings, in
some cases in towns where many
in the audiences had never seen a
rabbi or priest before. Numerous
radio addresses were broadcast,
making the message available to
thousands not reached by the pub-
lie meetings. Packed auditoriums
listened to the speakers.
5. New Round Tables were or-
ganized. "Clearing houses" of
Jews and Christians were formed
in : number of cities throughout
the country. A permanent Round
Table was organised in Chicago

The Year In
Human Relations
1 ntinued from Page 45)
rsity l: Conference
of Lo 1 Ith the
National 1 New Round
1: wi. orp; tnized in smaller
cities in variou :"
r should I"- added thai the
inities represented
at William njted ti ams
1 ppearai
the country. 1936 brought out a
wider application of local appear-
ot' priest, rabbi and minister
than any former year.
The past 5< ar also witnesse 1 an
intensification of inter-faith co-
operation and established this
trend well on the way to becoming
a commonplace part of the think-
ing of religious bodies and organi-
zations. Federal Council of the
Churches of Christ in America, for
example, has become fully accucs-
: to regarding the social ob-
jectives of religious life in Amer-
iac as involving churches anil
synagogue- collectively. Justice
Commission of the Central Confer-
ence of American Rabbis and the
.National Catholic Welfare Con-
ference, on practically every major
industrial question and other de-
partments, have co-operated ex-
tensively with parallel Ji wish
groups.
Another instance of the friendly
co-operation developing among
.lews and Christians \va> the alli-
ance or' Protestant- and .lews with
Catholics in the campaign to clean
up the movie-, and the remarkable
spirit of brotherliness which
caused I atholics and Jews to come
to the aid of The Churchman when
that distinguished Protestant pub-
lication faced ruin as the result of
the loss of a libel suit brought by
an attorney for the .Motion Picture
Producers and Distributors. Such
co-operation would not have oc-
curred to people a quarter century
ago.
To give another illustration:
When it was necessary for the
non-Catholic clergy of this coun-
try to make a statement with re-
gard to abuse of Catholic priests
in Germany a lew months ago,
Protestants turned as automatical-
ly to rabbis as they turned to
other Protestant ministers to sign
the pronouncement.
When a movement in regard to
religious life in the nation's cap-
ital was initiated by the Canon of
the Washington Episcopal Cathe-
dra!. Jews and Catholics were
Called into conference from the
very first step with Protestants.
\i I when, in the thick of the eco-
nomic depression, a movement for
religious and welfare rec ivery was
instigated, the originator came to
the writer and asked for Catholic
. ewish names so that their
counsel could be secured along
with that of Protestant leaders.
I e only a few indie
ot the rapid growth of the idea of
faith co-operation and the
sharp impetus which it has re-
d during the past y< ar.
During the sinner of 1936 a
number of regional Institutes of
Human Relations were held in
which counsel was taken by Amer-
ican -lews American Catholics and
American Protestants. The ex-
treme Southwest arranged semi-
nar session- in El Paso and Los
Angeles. The Rocky Mountain
National Park Institute convened
1,000 community leaders from the
.a as well as from the far West-
ern states. The North Carolina
meetings held at Blue Ridge re-
corded the presence of a small.
intensely earnest company of
Southerners. Midwest Christian
and Jewish people were well rep-
resented at Appleton, Wis., for
their five-day session. Perhaps
most venturesome of all was the
program at the Episcopal school
Campus of HotchkiSS, where the
historic religious messages of Israel
and of Christianity were shared,
as were the methods that the
Roman Catholic Church, the re-
formed churches and the Jewish
synagogues were employing today
in the United States.
A unique event during the year
and one that emphasizes the im-
portant place which the move-
ment for closer understanding has
achieved in American life was the
awarding by Bucknell University
in June of honorary degrees to two
co-chairmen of the National Con-
ference of Jews and Christians.
Newton I). Baker, general chair-
man, and Roger Williams Straus.
Jewish co-chairman, were honored
by this college for "carrying on
in our day the battle for religious
freedom and tolerance to which
Roger Williams in his day gave
his impassioned leadership."
So much for progress during
the year. There have, of course,
bean regrettable backwashes. The
opi ration of ci 1 1 ular "serv-
ices" like Kdmondson's, the out-
break of the Black Legion, the
orn persistance of Pelley s
anti-Semitism, are instances. A
tempts made in some quarters to
anti-Jewish and anti-Catho-
lic prejudice into the forthcoming
political campaign have been re-
garded with concern by sober
people. However, these desultory
outcroppinga of Intolerance are
minute as compared with the in-
crease in goodwill sentiment
eiated during the year.
Moreover, such anachronisms its
the Black Legion have been re-
garded with horror and indigna

citizens. This was not the pre-
vailing reaction to the Klan, L6
ago. This in itself indicates
a considerable advance in human
relationships. Intolerance must re-

the stage where it is regarded as

Frankly speaking, however, I lapses and reverses when might

quantitively has not changed in

But our half consolation is that
there are in history eternal values
such as justice which can never
be outlived and which must, in the
end, conquer. We Jews shall con-
quer not because we belong to a
special race (as some mission-
theorists would have us believe)
nor because we are more intelli-
gent or better than others, but be-
cause we have right on our side

Murder, intolerance, hatred and
discrimination are the monotonous
plagues which visit and obsess a
sick humanity in their treatment
of Jews and the only change evi-
dent in the past few years is a
change of geographical location in
which the plagues exist. Like the
famous Jewish story of the speaker

It was the German philosopher,
Friedrich Nietzsche, who said that
Christianity, the offspring of
Judaism, is a "sklaven-moral."
Christianity with its moral and
ethical teachings attempts to tame
the beast in man, it attempts to
remove his talons, it cuts off the
nails from the fingers of the hu-
man beast and makes him less
harmful. But this, says Nietzsche,
is a philosophy of the weak, a
"slave morale," which the strong,
the brute man fights against.
Some day, prophesied Nietzsche,
there will be a relapse when the
strong will throw off the yoke of
Christianity with its Jewish ideals
and the human beast "die Blonde

The Jewish New Year like the Having compiled all these findings,

latter is of mate-
significance. In

ilessly, unmoved
by either feel-
ings or emo-
tions. The suc-

conveyed by the
balance sheet
portray mountains or valleys rig-
idly constructed by the rocks of

At this holy season of the year,

calendar, e v e i y Jewish man,
woman or child must search their
selves, the innermost of their
feelings, without any preconvic-
tions or prejudices. They must
use the light of their heavenly
gift reason, to guide them through
the expedition of the self search.
Every spring of the nervous sys-
tem must be touched, every crev-
ice of the mind must be care-
fully examined in the tedius
operation of retrospection, of
the spiritual inventory. True
to the search, the findings
are often alarming. How fre-
quently have we been guilty of
provocation, disloyalty, dishonesty,
abrogation, corruption, unethical
principles, lying, withholding
promises, and of many other nu-
merous vices which we have com-
mited willingly or unwillingly.

Human deeds are characteristi-
cally portrayed by the Talmadic
Book of Ethics, in the name of
Rabbi Akiba: "All things are given
in pledge, and a net is spread over
all living creatures, the shop is
open, and the tradesman gives on
credit; the account book lies open,
and a hand writes in it; and who-
soever lists to borrow may come
and do so. But the collectors go
their rounds continually day by
day and enforce payment with or
without man's knowledge con-
scious that they are secured, as
their cause is just."
The human mortal, too preoccu-
pied with various necessities of
daily life, as the Talmud mentions
".Man's subsistence comes as hard
as the splitting of the Sea of
Reeds." man cannot, at the best of
his wishes, devote daily to spiritual
accounts. Very graciously, the
Almighty extended to us the op-
portunity of the New Year which
we are to enter happily, full of
hopes that He, whose abode is in
the heavens above, will absolve
our sins and will give us a happy
and prosperous New Year.

total property and the new order
therefore amounts to confiscation
of 25 per cent of the property of
all Jews. The decree has created
a panic in Jewish circles where
it is regarded as a move to prose-
cute the anti-Jewish program
through administrative measures
instead of through new legislation.
The text of the order reads: "From
i your financial condition it may be
assumed that you will transfer
your domestic residence abroad
when opportunity offers. To assure
! payment of the Reich escape tax

tory, amounting to one-quarter of

the Reich Escape Tax Ordinance

never more true than when spoken numbers by the Temple Quartet,

ices will be conducted in observance
of the Jewish New Year.
A program of special music for
organist and choirmaster.
In winding up the Jewish year,
the boys of the diamondball team
had a rather hectic week of it.
Undaunted by ob-
stacles, Capt. Max
Goldstein knowing
he represented fair
sportsmanship and
an attitude that
meant not mere
victories but de-
cent athletics filed a written pro-
test with Mr. Wheeler, assistant to
Mr. J. B. Lemon, recreation director
of Miami Beach, who was in charge
during Mr. Lemon's absence. The
protest in very definite terms ex-
pressed the sentiments of the Y.
Suffice it to say that the boys of
the team and the members and of-
ficers of the Y. were happy when
Mr. Lemon wired a ruling that a
round robin would have to be play-
ed and reversed the previous
rulings. Thus the Y. team, the
Marine A. C. and the WIOD teams
will have to play it out for the
championship. It is a pleasure to
commend Mr. Lemon's action. How-
ever, J. B. is too much of a sports-
man and a believer in doing right
to have expected otherwise.
There's to be very little going
on next week because of the Holy
Day observances. The Y will be
closed down until Saturday night.
Our Executive Director Boris
Schlachman will be "cantoring" in
Tampa, and maybe some of the
boys will be attending shul or
Temple.
It is indeed a pleasure to extend
hearty greetings to both our Jew-
ish and non-Jewish friends. May
the New Year 5697 bring about a
realization on the part of the mem-
bers of the "Y" that the institu-
tion means much to them and can
be made to mean much more if
they want it so. May the New
Year also bring home the kno-
wledge to the Jewry of the Greater
Miami area, as they sit in their
places of worship and take inven-
tory of the past year, that if they
want to preserve their young, and
to keep them within the Jewish
fold, then this institution can be a
tremendous aid to them. Keep your
young son, your young daughter,
particularly those of adolescent age
in Jewish surroundings. Let him
or her absorb the beauties of our
own people and of our own faith.
Provide him with those needs that
his spiritual and physical self crave

wishes, realities. Misses Ida Fogel, I.aura llol'f-

THE JEWISH Fl.ORIDIAN

The German Jew In Literature
HIS CONTRIBUTION TO ITS DEVELOPMENT

._____
One of the latest essays by
Hugo von Hofmansthal is entitled:
"Literature, the Intellectual Ter-
ritory of a Nation," 'Das Schrift-
tum als geistiger Etaum der Na-
tion.'
Language and thought represent
the higher domain of a nation; they
impart to it an ethical value and
at the same time form the means
by which present and coming gene-
ration! become acquainted with ir.
The immense wealth of German
literature with its great variety of
intellectual types, furnishes con- facts.
vincing proof of this view.
For centuries, German Jewish
intellect lived in this realm. Now
this homeland is denied the Jewish
writers. They are banished as
strangers, foreign to the spirit of
the land. They are accused of all
kinds of vices, of exerting a disin-
tegrating influence, of being un-
renewedj the motives of the Bibli-
cal legends are employed again and
again, and the religious and meta-
physical longing of Jewry present!
itself in new form in every .,
of time. The Jews live in literature
as no other people.
It is therefore in their writings
more than anywhere else that they
reveal their will and destiny. If
Jewish literature is judged, it is
the Jewish people that is being
judged. But judgment ought to be
based on the evidence of historical

words of Kant describe best how
this Jewish writer was esteemed by
the best minds of his century. They
admired the clarity of his mind, his
mastery of writing and, most of
all, his character. This character
stood for intellectual honesty, deep
humanism, and devout service in
the work of building up a new
liberal worldview.
When Mendelssohn's book "Jeru-
salem" was published, in which
an atc-mpt was made to connect
the Jewish religion with the new
spirit of enlightenment, Kant wrote
to Mendelsshon: "You have suc-
ceeded in reconciling your religion
with such a freedom of conscience
as one would never have consider-

faith can boast." Here is expressed
not only appreciation of a philoso-

The German Jew
In Literature
(Continued from Pajrc 51)
admirers of Goethe. Romanticism
also fructified those Jewish writers
who at the same time became its
antagonists: Boerne and Heine.
Ludwig Boerne was one of the
first German journalists, a critical
fighter who devoted himself pa*
sionately to the new liberal ideas.
Heine also represents this critical
attitude of Westerly origin but, at
the same time, also the deep feeling
of German romanticism.
It is therefore a mistake of the
anti-Semitic historians of litera-
ture to see in Heine only the ironi.
cal -coffer. They forget that, of
all German lyricists, he was the
most popular and that no German
book of poems was read as much
as his Buch der Licder. In these
verses lives the music of the Ger-
man folksong, an abundance of
emotional feeling which often bor-
ders on sentimentality.
Berthold Auerbach considered
himself a German and a Jew. His
tales of the village life of the Black
Forest made him the creator of a
new genre the German prose idyl.
He was a popular Heiniats-poet in
the best sense of the word. Tiie
number of Jewish authors in the
l'.Hh Century is legion, but they
never present a special type, there.
are :is many tyres of them as there:
are tendencies for which they f :gh;.
Men like Ludwig Bamberger, Julius
Rodenberg Fritz Mauthner, Maxi-'
milian Harden are figures of
decisive importance in the history .
of German journalism and essay-
ists.
As we approach our own time,
the aspect of German-Jewish litera-
ture becomes still more varied and
colorful. The intellectual attitudes!
develop in the same proportion, re-
placing or opposing each other, but .
together presenting a picture of
the development of the German
spirit. The general spirit of our
present time cannot be set down in
a formula nor can this be done for
Jewish literature. It is always ;n
close relationship with the prob-
lems and the fate of contemporary
life and always includes diametric-
ally opposed views of higher or
lesser rank and importance.
The interest of Jews in the vari-
ous intellectual movements is not
always equally intense, but they
actually participate in most of
them, no matter how opposed these
movements may be to each other.
The impressionistic world view
which records the nervous stimuli
of the outside world on our soul
life is represented by Jewish
writers; as, for instance, Peter
Altenburg, Arthur Schnitzler and
Alfred Kerr. Schnitzler also ap-
plies his great art as a psychologist
to specific Jewish problems. He
was a product of the 19th Century,
an Austrian and a Jew, a healer
of souls as well as a tragedian of
life. Peter Altenburg favored the
small episodes of everyday life, the
secret meaning and secret beauty
of which he had discovered and
, understood as no one else in his
generation. Entirely contrary to
this impressionism is the monu-
mental art of expression of Richard
Beer-Hofmann, who in his traged-
ies Jacobs Traum and David
pathetically avowed his Judaism.
Among the lyricists of our present
time, one of the most impressive
and most unknown is Alfred Mom-
luit. whose verses are full of
metaphysical longing.
No writer of modern times was
gifted with such imagination as |
was Jacob Wassermann. He re- I
minds us of the proclivity of the
oriental teller of fairy tales but
Wassermann's fairy tales are
novels of present day Germany.
Like James Joyce and John dos
Passos in the English language,
the Jew. Alfred Doeblin, became
the rejuvenator of the German
His books are filled with
imagination, unite nature and in-
genuity, the life of the metropolis
with the myths of religion and of
| history. Doeblin's poetry can
hardly be classified as Jewish, al-
I though it is not devoid of Jewish
| motives. Doeblin is, however, a
i conscious Jew when he considers
' the problems of our excited times.
Franz Kafka and Max Brod hail
from the old Jewish quarters of
Prague.
Max Brod's poetry and thoughts
are governed by his Jewish feel-
' ings. He does not tire of delving
into the mysteries of his race and
| attempts to express this tendency
I in various characters. No Jews
appear in Kafka's novels, but his
manner of investigation of the con-
science is an old Jewish heritage,
I Rudolf Borchardt, the strict liter-
| ary traditionalist, aspires to con-
serve and rejuvenate the German
' classical tradition. In Moritz HeL
mann's works, a most particular
-synthesis between the German and
the Jewish spirit is attempted, or,
to be more exact, a synthesis be-
tween the North German Protest- ]
ant character and the religious
fervoi of the Jew. In Else Lasker-
Schueler's Hebraeische Balladcn,
the ardor and vividness of the
psalter is again renewed. Martin
Buber is the proclaimer of Hassid-
ism, Jewish mysticism, but he is
also closely connected with the
German constructional systems of
mysticism and romanticism. Among
the sensitive and sympathetic
poets and portraitists of historical
characters, Stefan Zweig is to be
mentioned first of all. He is one
of the best novelists of our time.
IV.
This list is by no means com-
plete. A great number of names
can be added. Among the young-
est writers, Joseph Roth would
have to be mentined first. In his
novel Hiob, he created a beautiful
monument fir the East Jew. What
we wish to emphasize, however, is
the manifoldnesss and diversity of
fields of endeavor of the Jewish |
writers. Among all the peculiar- |
ities and characteristics by means
of which we distinguish the works I
of these authors, none are among
those ascribed to the Jewish author :
today. Those few authors who
might really deserve such criticism,'
are of no significance either from
It"!
the standpoint of Jewry or that of
contemporary German literature.
To really creative minds, their
Jewish descent was ever the herit-
age of an ethico religious past,
while their German life was their
actual existence, determined by
language, tradition and education.
Slogans, flattering or disparag-
ing, never suffice to describe in-
tellectual phenomena. They are en-
tirely insufficient to characterize a
world made up of so many internal
strifesnor will they do justice *o
the Jewish world.

JUDAISM... WHAT OF THE FUTURE
A NEW YEAR MESSAGE
BY RABBI ABRAHAM S. JACOBSON
Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation.
And I looked, and
there was no one to
help, and I was as-
tonished, and there was
no one to support; and
then my own arm aid-
ed me, and my fury
this it was that upheld
me. (Isaiah 63-5).
Judaism is a product of countless
generations, a living tradition
which had its source in the days
of the Patriarchs and ran its
course through many lands, many
climes, many ages, down to our
own day. This Great Tradition is
the origin, the inspiration and the
driving force of all that makes for
our life as Jews.
The past year in the life of the
Jew has demonstrated that this
Great Tradition is no dead theory
but a living, moving source of
power, finding new means of In-
spiring and guiding Jewish life.
Confronted with oppression, pog-
roms, false promises, cries in the
wilderness, the Jew realized that lie
must rely on his own arm to up-
hold him. Notwithstanding the ob-
stacles and impediments obstruct-
ing his way in the rebuilding and
rehabilitating his homeland the
Jewish pioneer is marching on. In
rebuilding a Jewish civilization in
the land where a great Jewish
civilization ajres ago held aloft the
torch of learning and philosophy
and religion, we are certain that

our people will construct it around
a cornerstone of enduring granite
hewed from the mine of true poli-
tical freedom.
For the ensuing year our spirit
must not become embittered be-
cause for so long a time we have
been the outstanding victims of in-
tolerance the objects of persecu-
tion and religious bigotry.
Looking back over the boundless
sea of tossing mountainous waves,
upon the crests and in the troughs
of which the people of the world
from time to time have been
thrown about or have floundered,
one beholds the miracle of a single
people savagely flung about when-
ever there was a storm and time
after time apparently drowning,
yet always in the end emerging
with unimpaired vigor, ready and
eager once more to resume the road
lading to the promised land of the
spirit.
Much a* we expect for the future
of Judiaism from the new life in
Fritz Israel, we cannot, however,
and dare not depend upon that
alone. If Jews are to take firm

hold of this tradition again, they
must be awakened to their duty
through knowledgeknowledge of
the true meaning and significance
of the Torah, of the Jewish Tradi-
tion. To the Biblical words: "And
Jacob awakened mishnoso, out of
his sleep," a sage in the Midrash
makes the striking emendation Mi-
shnaso Jacob awakened "because
of what he learned." And Jacob
of today too, will awaken out if
his spiritual stupor through study,
through learning, through kno-
wledge of what Judaism really is
and truly stands for.
With Judaism vital and alive, the
Jew, despite the efforts of a cruel
world to destroy him, will be ... .
must be ... triumphant.
On the threshold of the New
Year, the Jew must learn to say
again in the words of our ancestors
standing at the foot of Sinai:
"N'a'ase Venishma!" We shall do
and we shall understand." Let the
Jew endeavor to do to practice, to
live its Judaism burning in his life
and kindle it in the lives of his
children, and the future of Judaism
will be assured.
Storms and winds are constantly
endeavoring to blow out the light
of Judaism. We shall not lose
faith or trust, but shall keep on
rekindling that light until the light
of day comes to illumine all the
world.
May the coming New Year in-
spire the Jews of the world to
greater accomplishments.
But when ye pray, say ournot
mine or thine;
Our debts, our debtors, and our
daily bread!
Before the thronged cathedral's
gracious shrine,
Or in thy closet's solitude instead,
Whoe'er thou art, where'er thou
liftest prayer,

A Personal
Message
By J. LOUIS SHOCHET
Editor and Publisher, the Jewish
Floridian
Once again we fall in line with
the dictates of custom command-
ing a publisher to write a message.
As we, editorially speaking, remi-
nisce, close our eyes and mentally
picture the kaledioscopic panorama
presented by Jewish life through-
out the past year, we cannot help
but smile at the foibles of our
many friends ... the furore cre-
ated by perhaps unintentionally
leaving out the name of a guest
at a social function ... or as one
of our subscribers very succinctly
put it "dressing up the story of
her party a little bit" ... or even
committing the grave and unfor-
givable crime of having placed at
the head of a story the name of
one woman rather than another .
yet smiling begin to realize
that at the very bottom of it all
we, in this area, despite all our
faults despite all our short-
comings are in the forefront
of what we confidently believe will
be a renaissance of Jewish life
here .
Just imagine ... a renaissance
of Jewish life culturally .
religiously above all in evok-
ing, creating and bringing ubout
a feeling of Jewish consciousness
that will per se bring about a feel-
ing of self respect that has too
often been lacking among many
of our compatriots ....
Perhaps we, in this area, suffer
too much with an overabundance
of those who aspire to leadership
in the community who neither
by education, training or fitness
are deserving of this leadership .
1 erhaps we are too leneint with
this type of individual or even
with those who assume certain
titles, even that of the ministry,
who by no stretch of the imagina-
tion are entitled to this appella-
tion Perhaps we have per-
mitted some of our own people
and even those of the non-Jewish
faith to accredit certain rights to
individuals who rather than doing
us good are by their misrepresen-
tations creating harm for all .
Perhaps this is due in major
part to our own good Ra ib: i
either through jealousy of each
other, or because they are too
lenient, have been and are afraid
to take the stand necessary to
protect their own good names as
well as the fair name of the Jew-
ish community .
I'm just wondering whether or
not there is a feeling of distrust
that has been slowly created and
is now gradually coming to the
surface between laymen and Rab-
bis .. that should never have
existed and should be immediately
eradicated both have suffi-
cient work to be done in the com-
munity, each in their own spheres,
and together in other fields .
that there is sufficient glory for
all ... I
In the field of Kashruth through-
out the state there has grown up |
a feeling of distrust that has
brought about a feeling of repug-
nance to everything that is con-
nected with matters religious as
soon as Kashruth is talked about
. why must it be that as soon
as a butcher's or a shoched's name
is mentioned in Florida, one feels
that he is dealing with or talking (
about individuals that cannot be
trusted ... as if with people out
of the pale of honesty and clean
dealing much of course is to
be blamed on butchers not sticking
with one another in the interest
of kashruth and square dealing (to
their own monetary loss) .
In the field of Jewish education
. and perhaps here we tread
on our very own Talmud
Torah in this area has been, un-
fortunately, something to be
wished for in the future rather
than something we now possess.
Our children have been taught by
people untrained, by traveling
individuals who in some instances
have less regard for Jewish beliefs
and feelings than some anti-
Semites talk about the much
condemned Cheder system of old
... is ours of today any better
. can we not be made to realize

that a central system of learning,
of curriculum must be established
. if our children are to be
taught .
Can we not bring home to our
people, that mere attendance at
the synagogue or Temple on the
High Holy Days is but a mere
mockery that attendance
occasionally is the least we can
do to keep up our own respect and
that of our youth can we not
be made to realize that but a very
small part of our people are affi-
liated with any synagogue or
Temple and that a very small
part of those eligible belong to so
splendid an institution as the
B'nai B'rith lodge .
.Never the lesss we see
shining through the black clouds
of faults and shortcomings a blight
and glorious future ... a sky
where there is naught but sun-
shine .
We who have lived through the
hurricane, the boom, the lack of
Jewish training, the lack of Jew-
ish consciousness and have watched
Miami grow in the past years .
we can ... we DO VISION' a
Florida where every city will have
a Jewish community whose life,
whose doings will be genuinely
Jewish and as such genuinely
American .
We have faith .
A GOOD LAUGH .
I don't like the cast," Meyer de-
clared."
Meyer Finkelbaum was brought
up in a very severely Orthodox
home but his father occasionally
permitted him to go to the movies.
On one visit to the local theater
was Walt Disney's famous "Three
Little Pigs." In the middle of the
picture ten-year-old Meyer got up
and walked out. Curious to know
why a youngster should leave
before the picture was over, the
manager questioned Meyer:
"What's the matter; don't you
like the picture?"
"Oh, the picture's all right but

Harold Lloyd is up to new tricks
in "The Milky Way," which plays
at the 7th Ave. Theater Sunday and
Monday.
The spectacled farceur is as al-
ways inimitable. As a timid milk-
man who is pushed into fistic fame
when he ducks the blows of the
middleweight champion in a brawl,
Lloyd gave everybody a splendidly
hilarious time.
Two fierce pugilists proceed to
try to knock the comedian's block
off. In the assortment of foot-
work that Lloyd uses to escape
every dance step is introduced
from the tribal stomp of angered
aborigines to the bubble-chasing
flutters of Sally Rand.
"The Milky Way" is insanely
merry. It is guaranteed to give
every funny-bone a good workout.
The gags in this Paramount pic-
ture are irresistible.

British government until satisfac-
tion is given to their three prin-
cipal demands: Stoppage of Jewish
immigration, a ban on land sales
to Jews and the establishment of
an Arab national government.
The session, reported to have
been the stormiest in the career
of the Arab Higher Committee,
appointed a subcommittee to com-
pose a reply to the challenge con-
tained in the declaration of pol-
icy issued by the British Colonial
Office when it announced the dis-
patch of additional troops to Pal-
estine and the appointment of
Lieut.-Gen. John G. Hill as supreme
military commander. It is learned
that High Commissioner Wau-
chope, in interviews with the Mufti
of Jerusalem and Kagheb Nash-
ashibi, former mayor of Jerusalem,
sounded a preliminary final warn-
ing to the Arab Higher Commit-
tee before the official promulga-
tion of martial law.
The Arab revolt against the
Jewish national home policy of the
British government took the heav-
iest toll in loss of life and inju-
ries since the disorders began as
the authorities recorded the death
and wounding of 50, including
many British soldiers and consta-
ble-.-, in three engagements fought
in many sections of the Holy Land.
The most serious casualties were
inflicted on the Arab bands dur-
ing an engagement between Na-
hariya and Tarshia, settlements
near the Mediterranean coast
adjacent to Acre. 23 Arabs and
two Britishers lost their lives in
the struggle, the latter being a
non-commissioned York and Lan-
caster officer and a British con-
stable. The wounded included three
soldiers and four Arab policemen,
one of whom is believed to bave
been fatally shot by Arab snipers.
The second battle occurred near
the Jewish settlement Rosh Pina.
Four constables were killed in a
police tender following a mail
truck which was fired upon by an
Arab band. 10 Arab casualties
were reported in this engagement,
but this number is believed to
have increased as the exchange of
firing continued for many hours.
A third clash between British
Lroops and Arabs near Nazareth
started whin a military patrol was
suddenly attacked from ambush
after dark. Ti> reinforcement*
supplied with machine guns kept
up a steady barrage during the
night, with an undetermined num-
ber of casualties.
Editorials appearing in the Pal-
estine press indicate that the Jew-
ish population welcomes the an-
nouncement of stronger military
measures to end the disorders,
while the Arabs are divided in
their comments, some urging the
Arab leaders to accept the chal-
lenge involved in the Colonial Of-
fice declaration of firmer policy.

I)r. Wise Appeals for New Year
Aid to Spur Palestine Building
The increasing pressure to drive
Jews from their homes in Euro-
pean lands makes essential more
determined action by American
Jews to provide new homes for a
maximum number in Palestine,
declared Dr. Stephen S. Wise in a
Jewish New Year message to Jew-
ish leaders throughout the United
States, in appealing on behalf of
the United Palestine Appeal.
In his message, Dr. Wise said:
"I have just returned from
Europe.
"No one who contents himself
merely with reading the stories of
Jewish conditions abroad can truly
comprehend the extent of the ca-
tastrophe that has shaken people.
In millions of hearts there is a
fear that we cannot possibly
imagine; in millions of homes there
is despair that is beyond our power
to describe.
'For several years now famous
writers and brilliant speakers have
described these conditions to us.
But despite these first-hand re-
THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN
ports and these accurate accounts,
we in America have truly failed in
our duty: both as Jews and as
human beings.
"Why have we failed ? It seems
to me that this question will press
upon our conscience during the
coming high holidays when each
"I us searches his heart to weigh
his life during the past year.
"Surely not one of us can be-
lieve that the hand of hate which
has been lifted up against our peo-
ple abroad is intended for them
alone. We have heard from the
Nazi leaders themselves that their
mission is to spread throughout the
world their creed of destruction
against the Jew. The effect of
their ruthless propaganda is al-
ready visible in a number of Euro-
pean countries.
"The pressure to drive Jews from
their homes grows steadily greater
in all too many lancks. The Polish
government has officially indi-
cated that it would like a million
Jews to leave its borders. The
dissolution of the Jewish commun-
ity in Germany is proceeding swift-
ly under the sledge-hammer blows
of Nazi political, economic and
social oppression. Elsewhere, too,
Jews long for a release from the
ominous atmosphere in which they
live. Persistent and earnest ef-
forts have been made to find new
homes for a maximum number of
these people. But unfortunately,
the new havens of refuge are not
to be found. A number of coun-
tries have permitted a few thou-
sand to enter their borders, but
have already indicated that the
limit has been reached.
"In the light of this new urge
for migration, Palestine assumes
eve:' greater importance. Already
100,000 Jews have found a home
I in which, despite all difficulties
I temporary or otherwisethey look
i forward to a culture and an econ-
I umy which is permanently their
own and from which they will not
permit themselves to be ousted.
For this is the Jewish National
Home, solemnly guaranteed to the
Jewish people by international
covenant.
"Hundreds of thousands of Jews
in (iermany, Poland and elsewhere,
| long for settlement in Palestine
' not only because they seek security
but because they need the inner
peace and tranquility which is as-
sured to them in Palestine. If we
have a feeling of responsibility to
these Jews, if we want truly to
save them from the extermination
with which they are threatened, we
must give heed to their own pleas
and their own wishes: we must
help to send them to Palestine!
"As national chairman of the
United Palestine Appeal, it has
been the source of deepest regret
that although our quota for 1936
is $3,500,000 we have not yet
leached anywhere near that goal.
Page Fifty-nine
"It is incumbent upon us to be-
gin with the holiday period a genu-
ine dedication to the tasks of the
United Palestine Appeal, which is
the channel through which Ameri-
can Jewry aids in the upbuilding
of Palestine, now more than ever
the hope of great numbers of Jews
in many lands."

I'PA and JDC United to Sponsor
"Night of Stars"
Xew York (WNS) The United
Palestine Appeal and the Joint
Distribution Committee have
united in sponsoring the third
annual "Night of Stars" to be held
at Madison Square Garden on
October 28th under the leadership
of a com:nittee of Jews and Chris-

two organizations. The announce-
ment of this joint activity by the
JDC and the UPA also stated that
ihey would cooperate in issuing a
I93fi year book, called "Recon-
struction," which will describe the
history and achievements of the
rebuilding of Palestine and of re-
life and rehabilitation in Eastern
and Central Europe. At least $100,-
000 is expected to be raised from
the mammoth theatrical show and

A NEW YEAR MESSAGE
By RABBI LEONARD J. ROTHSTEIN
Temple Beth El, St. Petersburg, Fla.
pome months ago Mr. Babson,
well-known business expert, in
i open letter to the Jews of the
pted States, urged them to re-
to their cyclone cellarsin
ler words, to eliminate them-
\w< completely from public life
] I lie ground that if they did not
1 so they might, in the not far
ftant future, be subjected to the
10 treatment that is being ac-
fded the Jews of Germany.
Borne of us were outraged by
advice that we regarded as not
ly uncalled for but insulting.
If there were others who, I am
fe, felt that Mr. Babson had put
under obligation to him for
^ring written so wisely. I base
assertion upon the following
Its: First, the opposition on the
ft of some prominent Jews to
mass meeting held in Madison
Bare Garden several years ago,
theme of which was "Civiliza-
Against Hitler"a meeting
fct constituted the most devas-
ping attack upon Der Fuhrer
his works that the world has
witnessed; second, the refusal
the American Jewish Commit-
to join officially in the anti-
kzi boycott; third, the expressed
pe of some Jews that Monsieur
um would not accept the pre-
leiship of France (I wonder what
ley would think in view of the
(believable record achieved in
Teh a short time by his govern-
fent?), and that Jews here would
It aspire to public office. And
per instances come readily to
mind. The motivating reason ill
all three cases was the samethe
Jews must not make themselves
conspicuous lest dire consequences
ensue.
Needless to say I register an
emphatic dissent from this hush-
hush policy and I do so because
it is a policy worthy not of men
but of mice; because it is a cow-
ardly policy; because it is a policy
that spells a surrender of our
rights as free men and, finally,
because to adopt this policy is to
shun duties that citizenship im-
poses upon us.
Let us never forget that we
Jews are damned by many if we
do and damned if we don't.
Whether there are Jewish justices
on the Supreme Court bench or
|not; whether there are Jewish
mayors and governors or not;
whether Jews occupy high places
in the financial and industrial
world or not; whether we raise
our voices against injustice in
public meeting or not the anti-
Semite will always find reasons
for villification of the Jew. So
why worry? Why subject our-
selves to humiliating self-repres-
THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN
sion? Why give point to the
enemy's charge that we debauch
public and commercial life by re-
tiring to our cyclone cellars in-
stead of standing our ground, prov-
ing our fitness for civic responsi-
bility and asserting our right to
seek public redress for wrong
done us ?
That does not mean that we
should be bumptious, that we
should constantly carry a chip
on the shoulder, that we should
see prejudice where none is in-
tended, that we should be exces-
sively ambitious, that we should
make nuisances of ourselves, that
we should needlessly or thought-
lesssly imitate. It does mean that
we should stand manfully by our
guns, that we should be fearless,
upstanding Americans; that we
should assert our rights as citi-
zens.
Recently Governor Lehman of
New York announced that, at the
expiration of his term of office,
he would retire to private life.
Having given to his state eight
Page Sixty-Three
>o<------->o<
years of faithful service, he felt
that it was his duty to devote him-
self to his personal affairs. When
this decision became public prop-
erty there was an arousal un-
precedented in this or other states.
From all sides there came pro-
tests against permitting this offi-
cial who had rendered such dis-
tinguished service to his state co
retire. And so overwhelming was
this protest that the governor felt
compelled to reconsider his deci-
sion and issued a second announce-

Babson he was wrong in thus re-

First Street The "BIoi Strasbourg of the Shofar A FTER the terrible massacre of Strasbourg Jewry during those days when the Black Death was ivaging Europe, some individuals who were plundering the synagogue discovered a shofar. One of the pillagers, not knowing anything about its use, expressed the opin^ ion that the Jews had intended to .nay the city, and this ram's horn was to give the signal to their >' %  allies outside the walls. Soon everybody accepted this opinion, and v the town council resolved that this fortunate escape of the Strasbourg [_. community must be remembered. *i And so two large trumpets, resemIIIJ bl ng the shofar, were made out of bronze. Both were blown daily. One was sounded at eight in the evening and was a signal for all Jews to depart from the city, and the other was sounded at midnight and was a reminder to Strasbourg citizenry of the alleged Jewish plot to betray the city. PROM the writings of Judah AlBargeloni, one of the greatest codifiers Of the Middle Ages, we learn that in some places it was the custom, on the second day of Rosh Hashanah, to read at home the entire book of Deuteronomy three times twice in the Hebrew text and once in the Aramaic transation.

Friday, September 18, 1936 THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN Page Forty-Three • Our Way To Escape By RABBI MAX SHAPIRO (Continued from Page 41) Greater Miami, be determined to fully comprehend our great united task and duty to God and Israel! Let us not pursue the subject any further. We must not be tempted, in this season of hope and peace, to utter the curse that, humanly speaking, may be deserved. Peace to our German, Roumanian and Polish brethren—may God cause their enemies to relent. By our combined efforts can we hope to announce the coming year, 5697, with a prayer that Israel may b sayed in our day and all the world may appreciate the full reality of God—just as the Almighty is One, by the same token all humanity i one. And to all Israel, I express my heartiest "Sennas Li-alter L'Chayim Tovim." Slabodka Sam (Continued from Page 34) made him uncertain of himself. He couldn't work his "salami slam" on this Poison Pat; the Irishman got out of the way every time. At the end of the ninth round, Sam's nose was bleeding, his "talis katon" was torn in seven places, his "koppel" was gone and he didn't even notice it. I felt like throwing in the sponge; but Pinkus wouldn't let me. "Let him go one round more," he says; and he was crying, too. In the tenth round this Poison Pat decides the fight's in the bag and so he starts to tease Sam. And the house begins yelling for a knockout. The dumb "goy" thinks he'll play a bit with Sam before he puts him to sleep. And so he says to him: "Who ever told you, you was a boxer, you big ham, you!" When Slabodka Sam hears that, he wakes up like from a dream and say to Pat, pointing to himself, "Me—ham?" And Pat laughs, "Ya, you! you ham!" By now Sam is angry as a bull. He gives a nasty grunt and growls: "Pahs—kood-nyak, du einer!"; he lowers his head and rushes right up to Pat with both arms crossed over his chest and lets lose two "salami slams." The right missed, but the left hit Pat on the side of the head and sent him through the ropes, and the fight was over. That was Slabodka Sara's last battle. Why did he quit the ring? Well, he thought he made enough money for the Yeshiva already; and he was getting homesick for the old country; so he went back. And so Slabodka Sam with his "salami slam" disappeared from boxing forever. Jewish Music In Days of Long Ago (Continued from Page 40) also in abundance in Israel's home and in its economic life, for does not Isaiah exclaim: "And gladness is taken away and joy out of the plentiful field, and there shall be no singing in the vineyards; neither shall there be shouting." There were also numerous Convivial Songs, and merry dances— entertainment for the guests at banquets and other social festivities. Historical facts are especially remarkable for the healing power and application of music in the cure of nervous disorders. When King Saul became afflicted with attacks of nervous malady, it was David who took up the harp and played for him, alleviating the king's sufferings. From these few statements we may assume that both instrumental and vocal music were as popular in ancient Judeah as at the present. A short time after the destruction of the temple the instrumental music of the Levis fell into oblivion and the technical knowledge of it was totally lost to the ages. The vocal music, however, the intonations of the Psalms and the Pentateuch as well as the recitations of the prayers, were retained and transplanted into the synagogue which was established long before the destruction of the second temple. After the complete destruction of the National Center in Palestine the remnants of Judah were scattered. The Israelites were dispersed throughout the ancient world from Persia to the northwest of Africa, from Arabia to Rose, and as far as the Pyrenean peninsula, the Rhine and the Danube. Weary and footsore, hounded from land to land over the farspreading surface of the earth, even over the surface of the waters; the Israelite has never forsaken the law, nor forgotten his songs. Wherever he tarried he reared his synagogue for study and prayer. In the darkest night of our anguish, in the most rapturous moments of joy, there has unceasingly sounded from the synagogue the traditional chant, interpreting the spirit of the people. And to this day the old synagogue is the storehouse of our traditional BEST WISHES for A HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR NELSON'S DEPARTMENT STORES 5c and 10c and Up MIAMI BEACH A HAPPY NEW YEAR Jacques Beauty Salon of New York 677 Washington Ave. MIAMI BEACH ililiiiiiiliniMHIMiWletllimmH lawi Best Wishes for j| A HAPPY NEW YEAR j§ MANTELL REALTY & CONSTRUCTION CO. %  229 Eighth St. Miami Beach %  lillBIIBEaililWBLW %  %  %  %  %  %  %  %  %  %  %  %  %  %  • %  GREETINGS TO OUR MANY JEWISH FRIENDS 44 1 U 15 r ALJVlrjlV O Liquor & Cold Beer Service Are Now Located at 1399 WASHINGTON AVE., AT 14th ST.

Patre Fifty-two THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN Friday, September 18, 1886 V The German Jew In Literature (Continued from Pajrc 51) admirers of Goethe. Romanticism also fructified those Jewish writers who at the same time became its antagonists: Boerne and Heine. Ludwig Boerne was one of the first German journalists, a critical fighter who devoted himself pa* sionately to the new liberal ideas. Heine also represents this critical attitude of Westerly origin but, at the same time, also the deep feeling of German romanticism. It is therefore a mistake of the anti-Semitic historians of literature to see in Heine only the ironi. cal -coffer. They forget that, of all German lyricists, he was the most popular and that no German book of poems was read as much as his Buch der Licder. In these verses lives the music of the German folksong, an abundance of emotional feeling which often borders on sentimentality. Berthold Auerbach considered himself a German and a Jew. His tales of the village life of the Black Forest made him the creator of a new genre the German prose idyl. He was a popular Heiniats-poet in the best sense of the word. Tiie number of Jewish authors in the l'.Hh Century is legion, but they never present a special type, there. are :is many tyres of them as there: are tendencies for which they f :gh;. Men like Ludwig Bamberger, Julius Rodenberg Fritz Mauthner, Maxi-' milian Harden are figures of decisive importance in the history of German journalism and essayists. As we approach our own time, the aspect of German-Jewish literature becomes still more varied and colorful. The intellectual attitudes! develop in the same proportion, replacing or opposing each other, but together presenting a picture of the development of the German spirit. The general spirit of our present time cannot be set down in a formula nor can this be done for Jewish literature. It is always ;n close relationship with the problems and the fate of contemporary life and always includes diametrically opposed views of higher or lesser rank and importance. The interest of Jews in the various intellectual movements is not always equally intense, but they actually participate in most of them, no matter how opposed these movements may be to each other. The impressionistic world view which records the nervous stimuli of the outside world on our soul life is represented by Jewish writers; as, for instance, Peter Altenburg, Arthur Schnitzler and Alfred Kerr. Schnitzler also applies his great art as a psychologist to specific Jewish problems. He was a product of the 19th Century, an Austrian and a Jew, a healer of souls as well as a tragedian of life. Peter Altenburg favored the small episodes of everyday life, the secret meaning and secret beauty of which he had discovered and understood as no one else in his generation. Entirely contrary to this impressionism is the monumental art of expression of Richard Beer-Hofmann, who in his tragedies Jacobs Traum and David pathetically avowed his Judaism. Among the lyricists of our present time, one of the most impressive and most unknown is Alfred Momluit. whose verses are full of metaphysical longing. No writer of modern times was gifted with such imagination as | was Jacob Wassermann. He reI minds us of the proclivity of the oriental teller of fairy tales but Wassermann's fairy tales are novels of present day Germany. Like James Joyce and John dos Passos in the English language, the Jew. Alfred Doeblin, became the rejuvenator of the German His books are filled with imagination, unite nature and ingenuity, the life of the metropolis with the myths of religion and of | history. Doeblin's poetry can hardly be classified as Jewish, alI though it is not devoid of Jewish | motives. Doeblin is, however, a i conscious Jew when he considers the problems of our excited times. Franz Kafka and Max Brod hail from the old Jewish quarters of Prague. Max Brod's poetry and thoughts are governed by his Jewish feel' ings. He does not tire of delving into the mysteries of his race and | attempts to express this tendency I in various characters. No Jews appear in Kafka's novels, but his manner of investigation of the conscience is an old Jewish heritage, I Rudolf Borchardt, the strict liter| ary traditionalist, aspires to conserve and rejuvenate the German classical tradition. In Moritz HeL mann's works, a most particular -synthesis between the German and the Jewish spirit is attempted, or, to be more exact, a synthesis between the North German Protest] ant character and the religious fervoi of the Jew. In Else LaskerSchueler's Hebraeische Balladcn, the ardor and vividness of the psalter is again renewed. Martin Buber is the proclaimer of Hassidism, Jewish mysticism, but he is also closely connected with the German constructional systems of mysticism and romanticism. Among the sensitive and sympathetic poets and portraitists of historical characters, Stefan Zweig is to be mentioned first of all. He is one of the best novelists of our time. IV. This list is by no means complete. A great number of names can be added. Among the youngest writers, Joseph Roth would have to be mentined first. In his novel Hiob, he created a beautiful monument fir the East Jew. What we wish to emphasize, however, is the manifoldnesss and diversity of fields of endeavor of the Jewish | writers. Among all the peculiar| ities and characteristics by means of which we distinguish the works I of these authors, none are among those ascribed to the Jewish author : today. Those few authors who might really deserve such criticism,' are of no significance either from It"! the standpoint of Jewry or that of contemporary German literature. To really creative minds, their Jewish descent was ever the heritage of an ethico religious past, while their German life was their actual existence, determined by language, tradition and education. Slogans, flattering or disparaging, never suffice to describe intellectual phenomena. They are entirely insufficient to characterize a world made up of so many internal strifes—nor will they do justice *o the Jewish world.

Page Eight THE JEWISH FI.ORIDIAN Friday, September 18, 1K3G Hands Across Creeds ntlnuad fr m Page 7) not only a war against w destitution and economic demoralization. It is a war for th vival of den We are fighting to rave a great and pre fon vernmenl and for the world. I N" the conflict of policies and of political systems which the w irld today \\i: United States has held forth for its own guidance and for the guidance of other nations, if they will accept it, this great torch of liberty A human thought, liberty of human conscience. We will never lower it. We will never permit, if we can help it. the lieht to grow dim. Rather through every means legitimately within our power and our office will we seek to increase that light, that its rays may extend the further; that its glory may be seen even from afar. Every vindication of the sanctity of these rights at home, every prayer that other nations may accept them, is an indication of how virile, how living they are in the hearts of every true American. N O greater thing could come to our land today than a revival of the spirit of religion a revival that would seep through the homes of the nation and stir the hearts of men and women of all faiths to a reassertion of their belief in God and their dedication to His will for themselves and for their world. I doubt if thenis any problem— social, political or economic—that would not melt away before the fire of such a spiritual reawakening. IT la well to remember that this America of ours is the product of no single race or creed or class. Men and women—your fathers and mine—came here from the far corners of the earth with beliefs that widely varied. And yet each in his own way laid his own special gift upon our national altar to enrich our national life. From the gift that each has given all have gained. E VES since the beginning of our republic we have welcomed many men and women of ability and character from other countries, who have found their usefulness cut off by conditions which are alien to the American system. T HIS is no time to make capital out of religious disagreement, however honest. It is a time, rather, to make capital out of religious understanding. We who have faith cannot afford to fall out among ourselves. The very state of the world is a summons to us to stand together. For, as I see it. ths chief religious issue is not bet ween our religious belief.-. [( tween belief and unbelief. I not your specific faith or mine that is being called into rtion, but all faith. Religion in wide areas of the earth is ing confronted with irrelig faiths are being challenged. It is because of that threat that you and I must reach across the lines between our creeds, clasp hands and make common cause. T O do that will do credit to tin best of our religious tradition. It will do credit, also, to the best in our American tradition. The spiritual resources of our forebears have brought us a long way toward the goal which was set before the nation at its founding as a nation. Y FT I do not look upon these United States as a finished product. We are still in the making. The vision of the early days Still requires the same qualities of faith in God and man for its fulfillment. I LIKE to think of our countr\ as one home in which the interests of each member are bound up with the happiness of all. Wfl ought to know by now that the welfare of your family or mine cannot be bought at the sacrifice of our neighbor's family; that our well being depends, in the long run. upon the well being of our neighbors. T HE Good Neighbor Idea —awe are trying to practice it in international relationships needs I be put into practice in our munity relationships. When it is We may discover that the road to understanding and fellowship is : ritual awakening. At our neighbor's fin we may find new fuel for the fires of faith al our own hearthside. I SHOULD like to see associa of good neighbors in %  town and city and in every rural community of our 'and. Such associations of sincere citizens, likeminded as to the underlying principles and ideals, would reach across the lines of creed or of economic status. It would bring together men and women of all stations to share their problems and their hopes and to discover ways of mutual and neighborly helpfulness. H ERE, perhaps, is a way to pool our spiritual resources; to find common ground on which all of us of all faiths can stand: an! thence move forward as men and n concerned for the things of the spirit. I T iat all times desirable, and especially so in times of widespread readjustment, to keep unimpaired the sources of our spiritual strength and to maintain tin tenets of our American political faith, particularly the vital principles of equality, of opportunity and justice to all.

Page Forty-eight THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN Friday, September 18, 1936 SPIRITUAL INVENTORY A New Year Message From RABBI MORRIS HAIMEI., A.B., Sc.B. Congregation B'nai Israel, St. Petersburg, Fla. The Jewish New Year like the Having compiled all these findings, Common Era New Year is an inshould one enter into the category ventory period. There is, howof hopelessness? No, by all means, ever, a vast difference between no. The inventory taking alone is the two. "Kirch ok mizrach TI i m a a r o v," a distance as wide ap art as that from east to west of the universe. The latter is of matesignificance. In the cold busilU S8 world, the icy figures of the balance sheet stand pitilessly, unmoved by either feelings or emotions. The success or failures conveyed by the balance sheet portray mountains or valleys rigidly constructed by the rocks of fate and the cement of luck. The pronouncement of the balance sheet is a final decree, not subject to appeal. %T 4 r,. TiVrr TA P^cribed by Paragraph 132 of the NAZI I AXfcij I" R cich rdinance ( DESTROY JEWS Berlin (WNS)—Jews in Germany who have managed to retain something of their businesses despite the Nazi boycott and other forms of economic persecution now face complete ruin as the result of an order demanding that all ment must be enforced." The imposition of this tax intensified fears that restrictions against non-Aryans will be aggravated by the Nazi Party Congress now in session at Nuremberg. One of the measures expected to be Jews deposit withing eight days Not so is the spiritual inventory of man. it is introspection. At this holy season of the year, the first Of Tishre on the Jewish calendar, e v e i y Jewish man, woman or child must search their selves, the innermost of their feelings, without any preconvictions or prejudices. They must use the light of their heavenly gift reason, to guide them through the expedition of the self search. Every spring of the nervous system must be touched, every crevice of the mind must be carefully examined in the tedius operation of retrospection, of the spiritual inventory. True to the search, the findings are often alarming. How frequently have we been guilty of provocation, disloyalty, dishonesty, abrogation, corruption, unethical principles, lying, withholding promises, and of many other numerous vices which we have commited willingly or unwillingly. Rabbi Leonard J. Rothstein Wishes for the officers and members of Temple Beth El, St. Petersburg, Fla., and to all Jewry a VERY II \PPY NEW YEAR >f him who dieth, said the Lord God, therefore turn ye and live." Human deeds are characteristically portrayed by the Talmadic Book of Ethics, in the name of Rabbi Akiba: "All things are given in pledge, and a net is spread over all living creatures, the shop is open, and the tradesman gives on credit; the account book lies open, and a hand writes in it; and whosoever lists to borrow may come and do so. But the collectors go their rounds continually day by day and enforce payment with or without man's knowledge conscious that they are secured, as their cause is just." The human mortal, too preoccupied with various necessities of daily life, as the Talmud mentions ".Man's subsistence comes as hard as the splitting of the Sea of Reeds." man cannot, at the best of his wishes, devote daily to spiritual accounts. Very graciously, the Almighty extended to us the opportunity of the New Year which we are to enter happily, full of hopes that He, whose abode is in the heavens above, will absolve our sins and will give us a happy and prosperous New Year. a p r o c e s s towards the wipsrvna *--— ;r '" ; ::!;,,S' -"• %  r .r'jfJS total property and the new order therefore amounts to confiscation of 25 per cent of the property of all Jews. The decree has created a panic in Jewish circles where it is regarded as a move to prosecute the anti-Jewish program through administrative measures instead of through new legislation. The text of the order reads: "From i your financial condition it may be assumed that you will transfer your domestic residence abroad when opportunity offers. To assure payment of the Reich escape tax | due on your leaving Reich territory, amounting to one-quarter of your property as last ascertained, I herewith fix against, you, in accordance with Paragraph 7 of the Reich Escape Tax Ordinance (R.

Provide these which today are j following morning on "How Shall necessities, amid the proper sur' We Face Tomorrow?"

It under the direction of Nelson Brett, ices will be conducted in observance of the Jewish New Year. A program of special music for organist and choirmaster. In winding up the Jewish year, the boys of the diamondball team had a rather hectic week of it. Undaunted by obstacles, Capt. Max Goldstein knowing he represented fair sportsmanship and an attitude that meant not mere victories but decent athletics filed a written protest with Mr. Wheeler, assistant to Mr. J. B. Lemon, recreation director of Miami Beach, who was in charge during Mr. Lemon's absence. The protest in very definite terms expressed the sentiments of the Y. Suffice it to say that the boys of the team and the members and officers of the Y. were happy when Mr. Lemon wired a ruling that a round robin would have to be played and reversed the previous rulings. Thus the Y. team, the Marine A. C. and the WIOD teams will have to play it out for the championship. It is a pleasure to commend Mr. Lemon's action. However, J. B. is too much of a sportsman and a believer in doing right to have expected otherwise. There's to be very little going on next week because of the Holy Day observances. The Y will be closed down until Saturday night. Our Executive Director Boris Schlachman will be "cantoring" in Tampa, and maybe some of the boys will be attending shul or Temple. It is indeed a pleasure to extend hearty greetings to both our Jewish and non-Jewish friends. May the New Year 5697 bring about a realization on the part of the members of the "Y" that the institution means much to them and can be made to mean much more if they want it so. May the New Year also bring home the knowledge to the Jewry of the Greater Miami area, as they sit in their places of worship and take inventory of the past year, that if they want to preserve their young, and to keep them within the Jewish fold, then this institution can be a tremendous aid to them. Keep your young son, your young daughter, particularly those of adolescent age in Jewish surroundings. Let him or her absorb the beauties of our own people and of our own faith. Provide him with those needs that his spiritual and physical self crave is an institution such as the "Y" hopes to be that will make these wishes, realities.

According to Professor Graetz, a noted historian, the Gaon possessed a most remarkable memory. He never forgot a book after reading it.

Whereas the man, a slave to his passions, who so loses his belief in the all-embracing love of God that he fails to repent and return to his Father in Heaven, this despairing of the love of God is equivalent to his being inscribed —God forbid—in the Book of Death. —Israel Baalshem, 1760.

These words of the Psalmist are the outpour. Ingt of the sorr o w stricken heart, which has its grief transfigured by trust in God.

I Friday, September 18, 1936 THE JEWISH FLOBIOIAlf V Our Way To Escape By RABBI MAX SHAPIRO (Continued from Pajro 28) of conversion was not a way to escape. It brought no peace; it led to mental struggle and turmoil of soul! This way of false identity is a snare and a delusion; it is the way to ruin. WE CANNOT AND DARE NOT ESCAPE THE DESTINY OF ISRAEL! Gabriel Reisser was a cultured Jew of the last century. He lived in Germany and edited a magazine devoted to Jewish life and letters. He called his journal "Der Jade" (the Jew). And the story is related that one of the Vienna Rothschilds offered Riesser a handsome subsidy if he would change the name of his journal. Riesser replied, "We laugh at our fathers because they changed their names when they fell sick in order to deceive the angel of death. But aren't we doing the same thing, do we not call ourselves Nationalists of Israelitish persuasion?" The way of masquerade ia a way of self-deception. There is a third way, and it is not the Way of Escape from our people, Israel, but the way to escape all prejudices and self-deceptions by leading ourselves sincerely and religiously back to our God, Torah, and People. When hatred is most intense and persecution most severe, Jews do return to Ju. j daism and their people. Perhaps this helps to explain the enigma of Jewish survival. Theodore Herzl had the Jew in mind when he, wrote: "A nation is, to my mind, 1 an historical group of people held together by a common enemy." History does not repeat itself, | but historical situations are often similar. Dreyfus was the scapegoat of French militarism and Herzl, who was covering the trial as reporter, found his Jewish consciousness awakened. Walter Rathenau, the Jewish minister of foreign affairs in post-war Germany, was assassinated by an anti-Semitic ruffian, and Emil Ludwig, the biographer, who had been in-different to Judaism, wrote, "I feel more deeply bound to my race since it is being persecuted anew in my native land." Georg Brandes, the eminent Danish critic, became a stout defender of Jewish rights when the Poles whom he had championed sneered at his Jewish origin. In our own country, the most prominent traveler on the way back to our people is Ludwig Lewisohn; social and academic discrimination restored him to our ranks. All these men whose names I have mentioned were drifting from Judaism. They were running away from their people, Israel. They were seeking a way to escpae. But they learned in seeking to run away from their people, they sought to run away from themselves. Only when they turned back to their people were they honest with themselves. Judaism never turned away the man who said, "I feel as a Jew when my brethren are being persecuted." It applied the principle that "Yisroel af al pi shechoto Yisroel hu," though an Israelite has gone astray, he remains an Israelite. Emil Ludwig and Ludwig Lewisohn, Herzl and Brandes were welcomed back to our faith; but Judaism esteems all the more highly the man who says, "I feel I am an ardent Jew, even when my brethren are not being persecuted." That is the supreme test of Jewish loyalty—fidelity to the Jewish religious life at all times making it voluntary and not cornPage Forty-one pulsory. And the whole story of Jewish martyrdom is the glorious. record of hundreds of thousands | of men and women who devoted themselves to that Jewish life and would not relinquish it even in death. That is the incontrovertible testimony of Jewish martyrs in Palestine, of Jewish slaves in Rome, or of Marranos in Spain. That is why Mayence, Toledo or Nemirov were flooded with Jewish tears and skies were crimsoned with the flames of those who died Al Kiddush Ha-Shem. There is only one way to escape for the Jew. It is the only way to traverse, fellow Jews of Miami, and let us join hands together in peace, harmony and love.

1 Friday, September 18, 1936 THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN Page Twenty-nine SOCIAL JUSTICE AMONG JEWS W HEN contemporary preachers first began to deal concretely with economic and social problems, they were criticized by some on the ground that these problems were not the concern of religion, that at best, this was a new field of religious activity. But such criticism was both ignorant and biased. I do not think it necessary to belabor you with quotations from the Bible and Talmud to prove that in the past Judaism has regularly concerned itself with the problems of social justice. We will take that for granted. But it may be asked: How far has Jewish tradition gone in this direction? Has it contented itself with enunciating general moral principles? Or has it dealt specifically with individual problems? Have its methods been purely inspirational and hortatory? Has it utilized only the technique of moral suasion? Or has it sought to impose authority in solving social questions? T HE starting point in answering these inquiries must be, of course, the work of the prophets. They not only laid the basis of our spiritual and universal conception of God, but they made an inseparable union of religion with morality, including social morality. These teachers did not confine themselves to general pronouncements about social justice. They attacked the particular social abuse of their day. Amos denounces the exploitation of the poor; the taking of clothing as a pledge for trifling loans; the sale of grain unfit for human use; false weights and measures; judicial corruption. Isaiah deals concretely with the evil resulting from the concentration of property in the hands of a few: "Woe to them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no room and ye be made to dwell alone in the midst of the land!" He attacks the situation even though the evictions and the foreclosures may have been perfectly legal. He and other prophets also thunder against the ostentatious luxury of the wealthy classes, who are indifferent to the methods whereby all this comfort and beauty is paid for. We know also that Isaiah and several of his successors tried to influence the foreign policies of the nation in accordance with the religious principles. And most remarkable is Jeremiah's protestAgainst a very cynical act of the nation, when a promise to set free slaves of Jewish birth was quickly broken. I N the generations that followed, the social ideals of the prophets were gradually translated into laws; and the authority of the community was put behind them. I shall mention some of the more important social laws: I shall not include enactments to protect life, property and order, for such are necessary to any organized group life. Nor shall I include more ethical preachments found in the law, such as "Ye shall not oppress the stranger"; for these, however excellent, are like the preachments of the prophets, without legal authority. A FTER eliminating both these classifications, we still find in the Bible many laws that reflect a progressive social viewpoint. (Continued on Page 30) IIIK BASIC RELIGIOUS CONCEPTS OF THE JEW (Continued from Page 27) are also prescribed for this offense.

According to Babson he was wrong in thus reversing himself; according to the leading citizens of the Empire State he would have been grievously wrong had he refused to do so. In short, the Jew must be a man among men but everlastingly so scrupulous in his conduct as to win—like Governor Lehman—the good will of fair-minded and justice-loving Americans. How can he do this? By abhoring shoddy and unethical practice, by aligning himself with every worthy enterprise, by setting the good name of his people above private gain, by trying to live up to the glorious prophetic heritage that is his.

Friday, September U, 1M THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN Page Forty-five The Year In Human Relations Less Bickering and Back-Biting and More Co-Operation Characterized Protestant, Catholic and Jewish Relationships, Says Dr. Clinchy By EVERETT R. CLINCHY Director, The National Conference of Jews and Christians The past year has furnished abundant testimony to the progress of the movement for wholeseme relations among; Roman Catholics Jews and Protestants in America. Surveying the scene, one finds there was less bickering and back-biting and more co-operation. Child patterns in interfaith relationships are giving way to the mature attitudes of more civilized folkways, despite vital differences and conflicts of ideas. One sees, for example, a change in the Sunday school lessons being used this year. Congregational, Methodist, Presbyterian and Epis| copalian textbooks in religious schools are noticeably different. Twenty-five years ago Catholics and Jews were ignored or else mentioned simply to contrast the \ allegedly superior position of Protestant churches. Not so, now. I Fair play is taught. Appreciation | of Judaism and Jews is part of the J curriculum. At the same time American Jewish religious schools are conscientiously striving to inculcate appreciative ideas about contemporary Christianity and Christians, in substitute for distorted mental stereotypes of goyim, imported from Europe. The current practices in many public schools give further evidence that Americans are coming i of age in human relationships. Numerous high schools are presenting at assembly period the contribution of world-wide cultures to American life, and Jews, Catholics and Protestants play a part in that scenario. Again, the instances are multiplying wherein a priest, a rabbi and a minister appear together on high school platforms. This custom accomplishes three objects. First, it leaves an indelible picture in children's minds of believers of three faiths standing together as American comrades. Seeond, it affords opportunities to dear up many misconceptions about the three groups. One day a few months ago in Dos Moines, Iowa, it developed that in prac| tically every classroom during the period following such an assembly presentation the teachers and pupils fell into informal discussion of some idea or other aroused by this truly American program at convocation. Thiid, it provokes a fire type of patriotism, a patriotism we mean that prompts citizens of all parties, interests, occupations and faiths to mobilize for common tasks. Neither in the church schools nor in the public schools is this development sloppily sentimental. While it la designed to rid youngsters of socially inherited antipathies it teaches them to expect friendly clashes of ideas and traditions. It attempts to bring peace in Christian and Jewish relations, but promises battle against foes common to Catholics Jews ana Protestants alike. The past year has witnessed significant gains in that direction. Further, during the yar, considerable adult learning in human relations was achieved. Much of the progress emerged directly or indirectly from the Williamstown Institute of Human Relations I.I 1935. Williamstown crystallizej much that friends of the National Conference of Jews and Christians had been thinking. It expressed in more orderly fashion a great deal of what we had been saying. It focused and redirected much that we had been doing. By way of summary let us note some major outcomes from Williamstown: 1. Publication in 1930 of "The American Way," a small, interesting, readable book which presents the best that is being thought and done in the field of intercultural relations in the United States today, together with what we can learn from what is going on in other parts of the world. It io full of suggestions for local communities interested in promoting wholesome relations among the religious and racial groups that make up our commonwealth. It has carried the message of the Williamstown Institute across the country. 2. Brotherhood Day (the weekend nearest Washington's birthday) was observed far more widely this year and more variously than in either of the two previous years since it was initiated. By services in church and synagogue, public meetings of a community nature, radio addresses, sometimes in series extending over several weeks, appropriate dramatic presentations and by other methods which local ingenuity and initiative has dovised, a notable piece of popular education has been done. The address of President Roosevelt over a nation-wide hookup on Brotherli-od, with Gen. Charles Q. Dawes, Protestant; Michael Francis Doyle, Catholic, and Dr. Cyrus Adler, Jew, carried the principle of cooperation for common social aims and for common religious emphasis into every city and hamlet of the land. 3. In several communities the program of Williamstown in its essence was reproduced in what was denominated a "Willamstown in Miniature." Leaders of the i three faiths presented the salient issues presented at Williamstown in sessions confined to a single day and the addresses and discussions were found to be most profitable. This is a technique that should be widely used and is adaptable to conditions in every part of the country. It suggests a fine project for the coming fall and winter. 4. The 1936 nation-wide pilgrimage by a priest, minister and rabbis (note the plural, for the priest and minister went on for two months, but five rabbis were worn out before the circle was JKXXXXXX* \\3* vv-v • \%v ^J 1 We Extend j BEST WISHES %  %  for a %  HAPPY NEW YEAR completed!). This pilgrimage traveled over 10,000 miles spreading the message of amity between the various faiths. The team conducted hundreds of meetings, in some cases in towns where many in the audiences had never seen a rabbi or priest before. Numerous radio addresses were broadcast, making the message available to thousands not reached by the publie meetings. Packed auditoriums listened to the speakers. 5. New Round Tables were organized.

I Friday, September 18, 1936 THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN Page Thirteen BLOW THE GREAT HORN FOR OUR FREEDOM By LUDWIG LEWISOHN America's outstanding Jewish man of letters dedicates this article to his thoughts on the New Year. An inspiring document.—The Editor. It is the virtue and the pathos ne| Toice with tne i an g Uor of hi: Of man that he aspires endlessly material achievements. inward a better world; it is his weakness and his tragedy that he doenothing to bring such a world even one step nearer. No one not wholly bereft of any critical sense will deny that, though airplanes have flown faster ami all machines mass leadership and the consciousness of being a liberator the while he plunges his fellowmen into a still darker oppression. The sensual and the dark rebel in vain, Slaves by their own compulsion; In made game They burst their manacles and wear the name Of freedom graven on a heavier chain. Coleridge wrote those lines in 1797. They might so easily according to their sense if not according to their manner have been written yesterday. The sensual and the dark, the careless and the uncritical even, the unredeemed of heart and mind cannot bring about become more efficient, the sum of human mercy, tranquility and both moral and physical well being have been immeasurable diminished during the last twenty years. Upon each Rosh Hashana we observe a world more torn and riven, more filled with hate and pain, more scorched by suffering and conflict. Utopias are proclaimed and are This process of the substitution of outer activity for inner change can be defined and explained in the terms of Koheleth and other classical moralists; it can also Indefined and explained in terms of a better world or a better way of the Freudian psychology. The life tor men in spite of inventions psyche has its own economies; it seeks to save itself trouble; it chooses the easiest way. Now to hustle and bustle in the outer world of material thing* is not only easier than to change the heart and achieve the correction of the will, it also deflects the attention from that othu.and more of power and fair appearance. For even when their ultimate proposed ends are good, they will by reason of being sensual and dark, uncritical and unredeemed, feign to themselves that any means are justified by that end and forget that evil means alter the end by corrupting the character and will of the proponents of that end until they themselves are the last who could conceivably accomplish it. This is no council of quietism or inactivity. Over and over again our sages condemn the "fugitive and cloistered virtue." Virtue must be active; it must issue in action; it must change the world. Thu^ is he condemned who "learns" Torah and does not teach it. But it must be virtue that issues in action; it must be Torah that is learned and taught; it must be a (Continued on Page 15) BEST WISHES for A HAPPY NEW YEAR CHARLIE'S 1 NEWS STAND 1436 Washington Ave. '•'• MIAMI BEACH BEST WISHES for a HAPPY NEW YEAR SINCERE GOOD WISHES FOR THE NEW YEAR WASHINGTON STORAGE CO., INC. inn."> Washington Ave. Miami Beach found upon impartial examination difficult duty.

Phone 2-7691 Wishing All Our Jewish Patrons A HAPPY NEW YEAR AMERICAN* *BEDDISGC MCI i. J_ f MIAMI 451 W.FUGL ERST. EDMUND REID, Pres. I T is one of the fundamental principles of true Americanism that all religions are entitled to equal respect. Freedom for every man to worship God according to the mandates of his conscience implies the political, social and intellectual freedom which is the very foundation of our national life. IN the United States we regard it as axiomatic that every person shall enjoy the free exercise of his religion according to the dictates of his conscience. Our flag fur a century and a half has been the symbol of the principles of liberty of conscience, of religious freedom and equality before the law: and these concepts are deeply ingrained in our national character. It is Hue that other nations may. as they do, enforce contrary rules of conscience and conduit. It is true that policies that may be pursued under flags other than our own are beyond our jurislietion. Yet in our inner individual lives we can never be indifferent, when ideals and principles that we have cherished are challenged. W E have sought by every legitimate means to exert our moral influence against repression, against intolerance and against autocracy and in favor of freedom of expression, equality before the law, religious tolerance and popular rules. I T is idle for us or for others to preach that the masses of the people who constitute the nations which are dominated by the twin spirits of autocracy and aggression are out of sympathy with their rulers, that they are allowed no opportunity to express themselves that they would change things if they could. That, unfortunately, is not so clear. It might be true that the masses of the people in those nations would change the policies of their governments if they could be allowed full freedom, full access to processes of democratic government as we understand them. But they do not have that access; lacking it, they follow blindly and fervently the lead of those who seek autocratic power. T HE evidence before us clearly proves that autocracy in world affairs endangers peace and that such threats do not spring from those nations devoted to the democratic ideal. If this be true in world affairs, it should have the greatest weight in the determination of domestic policies. Within democratic nations the chief concern of the people is to prevent the continuation or the rise of autocratic institutions that beget slavery and aggression abroad. Within our borders, as in the world at large, popular opinion is at war with a power-seeking minority. I N this world of ours, in other lands, there are some people Who, in times past, have lived and fought for freedom and seem to have grown too weary to carry on the fight. They have sold their heritage of freedom for the illusion of a living. They have yielded their democracy. I believe in my heart that only our success can stir their ancient hope. They begin to know that here in America we are waging a great war. It is (Continued on Page 8) BEST WISHES for a HAPPY NEW YEAR JAS. J. MARSHALL Seybold Bldg.

Friday, September 18, 19S6 THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN Page Thirty-one A VITAL JEWISH FACTOR By MILTON A. FRIEDMAN ..I Slowly but surely coming to the fore, not by political intrigue or machinations, but by force of its value as a potent influence in Jewish life, are the B'Nai B'Rith Lodges of the State of Florida. An integral part of District No. 5, we feel it safe to assume that no area in this district has overcome much of the handicap it has been laboring under and making such strides as are Florida Lodges. Perhaps most effective and setting the stride for the entire state is Sholem Lodge of B'nai B'rith, taking in the Greater Miami area. At its head is Isaac Levin, who despite his manifold other communal activities is an active example of what a president should be. Associated with him as the vice president is Nathan Adelman, another Miamian active in communal affairs. These two, Levin a vice president of the Reform Congregation and Adelman head of the Orthodox Synagogue, are living examples of the common meeting ground afforded. With a membership in excess of two hundred and fifty, a gain of nearly one hundred per cent in the past year, Miami Lodge is proud of such men as Louis Gordon, who despite his illness is ever on the job; Elry Stone, quiet but enev' getic secretary; William Friedman, its treasurer; Milton Friedman,' now heading its Students Activity work and numerous others whom space will not permit naming. High lights in the past year's work was the determined stand to ever be on guard against the slightest indications of anti-Semitic and un-American activities. When the notorious Jew baiter, Gerald Winrod, attempted to use the schools of the city for his neIII farious purposes it was a delegation composed wholly of B'nai B'rith members who protested vigorously to the school board and who succeeded in having the further use of the schools prohibited to Winrod and his ilk. Effective intervention on the part of a B'nai B'rith member resulted in the withdrawal of five hundred dollars pledged by Florida to the Olympic fund. Quietly and very effectively signs posted on apartment houses "Gentile Only" are being withdrawn at the insistence of the B'nai B'rith Lodge. Recently Station WIOD, one of the largest in this area, pledged that "Gentiles Only" would not be used when advertising properties for sale or rent. In relief and social work, it was B'nai B'rith under Henry Nadelweiss and his fellow workers who raised a substantial sum for the Key sufferers which was given to the Red Cross committee. Funds were raised for the Jewish Welfare Bureau, the Leo N. Levi Memorial Hospital and other charitable institutions. Socially, the women helped in making the picnic, social meetings and similar events a factor in helping the Lodge gain deserved popularity. One of the events of the year was the banquet at the Hotel Evans honoring District President Abe Shefferman and Vice President Hyman S. Jacobs. Congressman Wilcox was one of the guests of honor. Installation of officers with Sam Goldstein of West Palm Beach, district representative, as installing officer was another gala event. At present the Miami Lodge is one of the potent factors in making itself and Judaism felt in the life of the Jewish student body at the State University at Gainesville. Miami Lodge has already pledged $250 towards this movement. When effected, it will be the means of establishing a miniature Hillel Foundation at the University, bringing home to the several hundred Jewish students the beauties and importance of Jewish life, customs and traditions. An outstanding and noteworthy fact is that the actual work is being I done by laymen, who will ask the Rabbis to assist with lectures, etc. | Milton Friedman of Miami is being helped by representatives of other Florida lodges. Adult education in matters Jewish is another goal which the Miami Lodge is setting for itself and which will shsortly begin to see definite form. Thus Miami Lodge is becoming a vital force in Jewish life. Not to be outdone, Tampa Lodge, under the able guidance of such men as the well known and universally respected Judge M. Henry Cohen, is making itself felt as a factor in the general life of Tampa Jewry. Beginning with the installation last November when Vice President Hyman S. Jacobs and Sam Goldstein of West Palm Beach, assisted by officers from Orlando, including B. J. Cohen, activities included social events, a well-attended meeting addressed by the District President Abe Shefferman, dances, bridges, musicales and similar events. In the social serv. ice field the Tampa Lodge rendered yeoman service when it assisted the National Council of Jewish Women in immigration work. Much work of a constructive nature, though quiet, was effective in anti-defamation activities. Rabbi David L. Zielonka, a member of the Tampa Lodge, was named a member of the general governing body of the District Grand Lodge.

Page Sixteen THE JEWISH FI.ORIDIAN Friday, September 18, 193G Palestine in 5696 Four years of uninterrupted growth which rose in a steady upward curve were suddenly challenged less than six months ago when Palestine found itself at the beginning; of a series of disorders that have had no parallel since the time when British troops, bolstered by Jewish legionnaires, wrested the ancestral homeland from Turkish suzerainty. By the end of 1985 the Jewish Agency for Palestine was pointing out that 62, Jewish immigrants, more than went to all other lands combined, had entered the country during the preceding twelve month-. f50,000,000 had been imported by immigrants during the I, a huge sum that went to fructif) industry and commerce and to bolster a government plus thai huge total of twice the annual budget. Over U n Erom • iermany had : Palest ine since the Hitler reign started. Mori than 10,000 Jews, to eonwith 58,000 in 1919, were living in Palestine when violence and tion laid their i iotous hands intry on April 19, 1930. For the fourth time since the Jew ish National Home policy had been enunciated by the British mandatory power native Arabt denounce Jewish immigration, to demand a ban on land sales and to urge the establishment of a national Arab government. The tragic events which startled the world in April had been introduced by months of uncertainty and tension. The Italo-Abyssinian war. casting a shadow over the entile Near East, causing a restriction in trade, a tightening in credit, a decline in tourists and a general economic excitement, laid the foundation for a challenge to the British Empire, whose prestige was weakened by the fiasco of its foreign policy vis-a-vis Italy. In November of 1936 the existence of an Arab terrorist band was discovered. Its professed aim was to drive Jews out by force and to seize rule from the British. AcUSed of murder, the members -if the band were hailed as patrioti by their co-religionistS. Occasional sniping thereafter and a series of highway robberies, accompanied by ruthless assassinations, flamed into the conflagration of April 19, when Aral>s began to murder dews on the streets of Jaffa on the basis of a false rumor that Jews had assailed Arabs. Since then more than fifty .lews been killed by the guns of A rail assassins, to the accompanist like which has mntry.

From the Jewish side some facts are outstanding. One is the extraordinary heroism and restraint displayed by the Jewish community in Palestine. Dispensing with all party differences, the Yishuv has shown a united front to van. dais and assassins. It is well known that the Jews -if Palestine are adequately equipped for selfdefense. Prompted by idealism | and a wish to avoid hurt to their cause, the Jew.of Palestine have not retaliated against the almost irresistible provocation by the A abs. By their conduct during these riots the Jews of Palestine demonstrated that they have apacity for self-government and that no obstacle-, no matter how great, will deter them from going forward with all speed in the rebuilding of the Jewish National Home. Another important item resulting from the disturbances was the establishment of the Tel Aviv port. The great trade which previously flowed through Jaffa will now provide greater employment and new channels of progress for the allJewish city, whose population is now at 150,000. That Jews throughout the world have reacted to the Palestine events in the spirit manifested by the Yishuv is reflected in the record of uninterrupted immigration. During the first seven months of V.r.W a total of almost 19,000 Jews entered Palestine, still more than the number absorbed by all other lands. The principal problem faced by Jewish Palestine today is political rather than economic, for the Jewish economic structure in the land has not been undermined to any _' considerable extent by the Arab strike. In many spots that structure has been bolstered. But Great Britain has an eye on sentiment in other Moslem countries; it would like to keep the support of Arab potentates in the Middle Fast. To what extent will it sacrifice its promise to the Jews in obedience to those two factors? SINCKRF. WISHES for A HAPPY NEW YEAR ABE ARONOVITZ City Solicitor MIAMI. FI.A.

The session, reported to have been the stormiest in the career of the Arab Higher Committee, appointed a subcommittee to compose a reply to the challenge contained in the declaration of policy issued by the British Colonial Office when it announced the dispatch of additional troops to Palestine and the appointment of Lieut.-Gen. John G. Hill as supreme military commander. It is learned that High Commissioner Wauchope, in interviews with the Mufti of Jerusalem and Kagheb Nashashibi, former mayor of Jerusalem, sounded a preliminary final warning to the Arab Higher Committee before the official promulgation of martial law. The Arab revolt against the Jewish national home policy of the British government took the heaviest toll in loss of life and injuries since the disorders began as the authorities recorded the death and wounding of 50, including many British soldiers and constable-.-, in three engagements fought in many sections of the Holy Land. The most serious casualties were inflicted on the Arab bands during an engagement between Nahariya and Tarshia, settlements near the Mediterranean coast adjacent to Acre. 23 Arabs and two Britishers lost their lives in the struggle, the latter being a non-commissioned York and Lancaster officer and a British constable. The wounded included three soldiers and four Arab policemen, one of whom is believed to bave been fatally shot by Arab snipers. The second battle occurred near the Jewish settlement Rosh Pina. Four constables were killed in a police tender following a mail truck which was fired upon by an Arab band. 10 Arab casualties were reported in this engagement, but this number is believed to have increased as the exchange of firing continued for many hours. A third clash between British Lroops and Arabs near Nazareth started whin a military patrol was suddenly attacked from ambush after dark. Ti—> reinforcement* supplied with machine guns kept up a steady barrage during the night, with an undetermined number of casualties. Editorials appearing in the Palestine press indicate that the Jewish population welcomes the announcement of stronger military measures to end the disorders, while the Arabs are divided in their comments, some urging the Arab leaders to accept the challenge involved in the Colonial Office declaration of firmer policy.

Friday, September 18, 1936 I)r. Wise Appeals for New Year Aid to Spur Palestine Building The increasing pressure to drive Jews from their homes in European lands makes essential more determined action by American Jews to provide new homes for a maximum number in Palestine, declared Dr. Stephen S. Wise in a Jewish New Year message to Jewish leaders throughout the United States, in appealing on behalf of the United Palestine Appeal. In his message, Dr. Wise said: "I have just returned from Europe. "No one who contents himself merely with reading the stories of Jewish conditions abroad can truly comprehend the extent of the catastrophe that has shaken people. In millions of hearts there is a fear that we cannot possibly imagine; in millions of homes there is despair that is beyond our power to describe. '•For several years now famous writers and brilliant speakers have described these conditions to us. But despite these first-hand reTHE JEWISH FLORIDIAN ports and these accurate accounts, we in America have truly failed in our duty: both as Jews and as human beings. "Why have we failed ? It seems to me that this question will press upon our conscience during the coming high holidays when each "I us searches his heart to weigh his life during the past year. "Surely not one of us can believe that the hand of hate which has been lifted up against our people abroad is intended for them alone. We have heard from the Nazi leaders themselves that their mission is to spread throughout the world their creed of destruction against the Jew. The effect of their ruthless propaganda is already visible in a number of European countries. "The pressure to drive Jews from their homes grows steadily greater in all too many lancks. The Polish government has officially indicated that it would like a million Jews to leave its borders. The dissolution of the Jewish community in Germany is proceeding swiftly under the sledge-hammer blows of Nazi political, economic and social oppression. Elsewhere, too, Jews long for a release from the ominous atmosphere in which they live. Persistent and earnest efforts have been made to find new homes for a maximum number of these people. But unfortunately, the new havens of refuge are not to be found. A number of countries have permitted a few thousand to enter their borders, but have already indicated that the limit has been reached. "In the light of this new urge for migration, Palestine assumes eve:' greater importance. Already •100,000 Jews have found a home I in which, despite all difficulties— I temporary or otherwise—they look i forward to a culture and an econI umy which is permanently their own and from which they will not permit themselves to be ousted. For this is the Jewish National Home, solemnly guaranteed to the Jewish people by international covenant. "Hundreds of thousands of Jews in (iermany, Poland and elsewhere, | long for settlement in Palestine— not only because they seek security but because they need the inner peace and tranquility which is assured to them in Palestine. If we have a feeling of responsibility to these Jews, if we want truly to save them from the extermination with which they are threatened, we must give heed to their own pleas and their own wishes: we must help to send them to Palestine! "As national chairman of the United Palestine Appeal, it has been the source of deepest regret that although our quota for 1936 is $3,500,000 we have not yet leached anywhere near that goal. Page Fifty-nine "It is incumbent upon us to begin with the holiday period a genuine dedication to the tasks of the United Palestine Appeal, which is the channel through which American Jewry aids in the upbuilding of Palestine, now more than ever the hope of great numbers of Jews in many lands."

Iday, September II, 1QM A NEW YEAR MESSAGE By RABBI LEONARD J. ROTHSTEIN Temple Beth El, St. Petersburg, Fla. pome months ago Mr. Babson, well-known business expert, in i open letter to the Jews of the pted States, urged them to reto their cyclone cellars—in ler words, to eliminate them\w< completely from public life ] I lie ground that if they did not 1 so they might, in the not far ftant future, be subjected to the 10 treatment that is being acfded the Jews of Germany. Borne of us were outraged by advice that we regarded as not ly uncalled for but insulting. If there were others who, I am fe, felt that Mr. Babson had put under obligation to him for ^ring written so wisely. I base assertion upon the following Its: First, the opposition on the ft of some prominent Jews to mass meeting held in Madison Bare Garden several years ago, theme of which was "CivilizaAgainst Hitler"—a meeting fct constituted the most devasping attack upon Der Fuhrer his works that the world has witnessed; second, the refusal the American Jewish Committo join officially in the antikzi boycott; third, the expressed pe of some Jews that Monsieur um would not accept the preleiship of France (I wonder what ley would think in view of the (believable record achieved in Teh a short time by his governfent?), and that Jews here would It aspire to public office. And per instances come readily to mind. The motivating reason ill all three cases was the same—the Jews must not make themselves conspicuous lest dire consequences ensue. Needless to say I register an emphatic dissent from this hushhush policy and I do so because it is a policy worthy not of men but of mice; because it is a cowardly policy; because it is a policy that spells a surrender of our rights as free men and, finally, because to adopt this policy is to shun duties that citizenship imposes upon us. Let us never forget that we Jews are damned by many if we do and damned if we don't. Whether there are Jewish justices on the Supreme Court bench or |not; whether there are Jewish mayors and governors or not; whether Jews occupy high places in the financial and industrial world or not; whether we raise our voices against injustice in public meeting or not the antiSemite will always find reasons for villification of the Jew. So why worry? Why subject ourselves to humiliating self-represTHE JEWISH FLORIDIAN sion? Why give point to the enemy's charge that we debauch public and commercial life by retiring to our cyclone cellars instead of standing our ground, proving our fitness for civic responsibility and asserting our right to seek public redress for wrong done us ? That does not mean that we should be bumptious, that we should constantly carry a chip on the shoulder, that we should see prejudice where none is intended, that we should be excessively ambitious, that we should make nuisances of ourselves, that we should needlessly or thoughtlesssly imitate. It does mean that we should stand manfully by our guns, that we should be fearless, upstanding Americans; that we should assert our rights as citizens. Recently Governor Lehman of New York announced that, at the expiration of his term of office, he would retire to private life. Having given to his state eight Page Sixty-Three >o< >o< years of faithful service, he felt that it was his duty to devote himself to his personal affairs. When this decision became public property there was an arousal unprecedented in this or other states. From all sides there came protests against permitting this official who had rendered such distinguished service to his state co retire. And so overwhelming was this protest that the governor felt compelled to reconsider his decision and issued a second announcejjjjAHERN FUNERAL HOME:-: FRANCIS AHERN Pres. 1349 West Flagler'Street x Telephone 2-2211 %  • %  AMBULANCE SERVICE •.• ROBBINS ROOFING & SHEET METAL WORKS Responsible Roofers Since 1919 Inspection and Estimates Free 222 N.

Pajre Forty-six THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN Friday, September 18, 1934 The Year In Human Relations 1 ntinued from Page 45) rsity l: Conference of Lo 1 Ith the National 1 New Round 1 : wi. orp; tnized in smaller cities in variou : r should I"added thai the inities represented at William njted ti ams 1 ppearai the country. 1936 brought out a wider application of local appearot' priest, rabbi and minister than any former year. The past 5 %  < ar also witnesse 1 an intensification of inter-faith cooperation and established this trend well on the way to becoming a commonplace part of the thinking of religious bodies and organizations. Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America, for example, has become fully accucs: to regarding the social objectives of religious life in Ameriac as involving churches anil synagoguecollectively. Justice Commission of the Central Conference of American Rabbis and the .National Catholic Welfare Conference, on practically every major industrial question and other departments, have co-operated extensively with parallel Ji wish groups. Another instance of the friendly co-operation developing among .lews and Christians \va> the alliance or' Protestantand .lews with Catholics in the campaign to clean up the movie-, and the remarkable spirit of brotherliness which caused I atholics and Jews to come to the aid of The Churchman when that distinguished Protestant publication faced ruin as the result of the loss of a libel suit brought by an attorney for the .Motion Picture Producers and Distributors. Such co-operation would not have occurred to people a quarter century ago. To give another illustration: When it was necessary for the non-Catholic clergy of this country to make a statement with regard to abuse of Catholic priests in Germany a lew months ago, Protestants turned as automatically to rabbis as they turned to other Protestant ministers to sign the pronouncement. When a movement in regard to religious life in the nation's capital was initiated by the Canon of the Washington Episcopal Cathedra!. Jews and Catholics were Called into conference from the very first step with Protestants. \i I when, in the thick of the economic depression, a movement for religious and welfare rec ivery was instigated, the originator came to the writer and asked for Catholic ewish names so that their counsel could be secured along with that of Protestant leaders. I e only a few indie ot the rapid growth of the idea of faith co-operation and the sharp impetus which it has red during the past y< ar. During the sinner of 1936 a number of regional Institutes of Human Relations were held in which counsel was taken by American -lews American Catholics and American Protestants. The extreme Southwest arranged seminar sessionin El Paso and Los Angeles. The Rocky Mountain National Park Institute convened 1,000 community leaders from the .a as well as from the far Western states. The North Carolina meetings held at Blue Ridge recorded the presence of a small. intensely earnest company of Southerners. Midwest Christian and Jewish people were well represented at Appleton, Wis., for their five-day session. Perhaps most venturesome of all was the program at the Episcopal school Campus of HotchkiSS, where the historic religious messages of Israel and of Christianity were shared, as were the methods that the Roman Catholic Church, the reformed churches and the Jewish synagogues were employing today in the United States. A unique event during the year and one that emphasizes the important place which the movement for closer understanding has achieved in American life was the awarding by Bucknell University in June of honorary degrees to two co-chairmen of the National Conference of Jews and Christians. Newton I). Baker, general chairman, and Roger Williams Straus. Jewish co-chairman, were honored by this college for "carrying on in our day the battle for religious freedom and tolerance to which Roger Williams in his day gave his impassioned leadership." So much for progress during the year. There have, of course, bean regrettable backwashes. The opi ration of ci 1 1 ular "services" like Kdmondson's, the outbreak of the Black Legion, the orn persistance of Pelley s anti-Semitism, are instances. A tempts made in some quarters to anti-Jewish and anti-Catholic prejudice into the forthcoming political campaign have been regarded with concern by sober people. However, these desultory outcroppinga of Intolerance are minute as compared with the increase in goodwill sentiment eiated during the year. Moreover, such anachronisms its the Black Legion have been regarded with horror and indigna tion by the masses of American citizens. This was not the prevailing reaction to the Klan, L6 ago. This in itself indicates a considerable advance in human relationships. Intolerance must remain under cover; it cannot thrive in the open. We are coming to the stage where it is regarded as anti-social to be a bigot. There are prophets of doom among us who warn that antiSemitism is spreading and who paint black pictureof what the *XXXXXXX\XXXXXXXXXXXVXXX< jg A HAPPY NEW YEAR \ $ OLYMPIA WINE & $ LIQUOR CO. £ INS.

-.: Friday, September 18, 1936 THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN Page Seventeen The United States in 5696 (Continued from Page 12) at home and abroad. Senator King of Utah made an impassioned appeal in the senate for an open door to German Jewish refugees. The year also revealed a renew e d organized anti-Semitic movement which in some instances assumed a definite political character. Notwithstanding the fact that they have been discredited in years past, the Silver Shirts, the Ku Klux Klan and similar bodies resumed their campaigns against American Jewry. The disclosures of the activities of the Black Legion horrified the nation. Following the example of European Fascists, a number of organizations bluntly injected anti-Semitism into American politics. The whispering campaign alleging that Secretary of Labor Perkins is a Jewess, the attempts to cut short Governor Lehman's political career because of his Jewishness, the creation of an anti-Jewish party in Chicago by a defeated mayoralty candidate, the conversion of the Friends of. the New Germany into a so-called American body to enable them to play a role in politics, the organization of the Christian party and the American National Labor party and the attempt to brand the New Deal as "a Jew deal" must all be listed as manifestations at this disconcerting tendency. The most prominent political protagonists of this political anti-Semitism were the Sentinels of the Republic, Father Coughlin, the Rev, Gerald K. Smith, political heir of lluey I/ong and William Randolpn Hearst, who, although never directly attacking the Jews as BUch, set the stage for a hysterical attitude against aliens and "reds" in an attempt to confuse in the minds of the American people the terms "Communist" and "immigrant American." In Florida, a publication, "Race and Nation," evidently fostered by political reactionaries, sought to spread its poisonous venom. In Miami numerous anti-Semitic propaganda were frowned upon and promptly scotched by public authorities. These un-American OUtcroppings had the effect of strengthening the liberal forces, which did not hesitate to speak out against concealed or open Fascism in America. Poremost among these staunch defenders of old-fashioned Americanism -ere Governor Karle of Pennsylvania, President Conant of Harvard, Judge Collins of the New York Supreme Court, the Rev. L. M. Birkhead, Sinclair Lewis anil his wife. Dorothy Thompson, and Governor Curley of Massachusetts, whose vigorous action against the president of the Sentinels of the Republic drove that organization into oblivion. Mayor La Guardia of New York, disregarding his official position, utilized every opportunity to combat Nazism and racial discrimination. As chief magistrate of the city of New York he ordered the arrest of Robert Edward Bdmondson, anti-Semitic pamphleteer. Further evidence that the nation resented the petty racial-prejudice-mongers was provided by the unprecedented ovation accorded Governor Lehman at the Democratic national convention. Jewish leadership in the United Slates lost a number of its most beloved national figures, among ihem Bernard s. Deutsch, Peter Wiemik, Judge Otto Rosalsky, Professor Richard Gottheil and General Milton Foreman. The death of Dr. S. Parkes Cadman, champion of religious freedom, created great sorrow among the Jewish community. When studying the annals of 5096 the Jewish historian will note thai American Jewish leadership began to throw off the shackles of I uie y philanthropic control. Jewish social workers manifested striking independence and a determination to fight for social justice in organized Jewish communal life, while the rabbis continued their notable progressive attitude. Tlie Reform rabbis went on record as favoring the exemption from military service of those Jews who oppose war on the grounds of conscience, and the Conservative group endorsed birth control. The Jewish panorama in the United States would not be complete without mentioning the settlement of Jewish needle trade workers in the Federal resettlement project at Hightstown, N. J., and the upward trend in the construction of new Jewish buildings and the steady increase in the support accorded to Jewish cultural activities. Despite the undeniable disunity among Jewish leaders and the increase of anti-Semitism in the United States, one can say that Jews strengthened their position as useful and constructive factors during a period of economic, social and political transition.

So he had himself made a special "koppel" with a piece of elastic that came under his chin and kept his head covered all the time. And on top of his irym shirt he always wore his "talis katon," with lonjr woolen "tzitzis." And hi."payees" dangled around like springs with every move he made. He drew a crowd just by the way he looked in his outfit. Well, we put one of the trainers in the ring with him; and just the sake of a demonstration, because Pinkus kept jabber ng I wanted to keep him in training for a longer period; but he and Pinkus were in too much of a hurry to get the dough. He almost lost his first engagement. He fasted the day before the fight; that was his way of asking God for a victory. But in the fifth round he gives his opponent a taste of his "salami slam" and the fight was over. Before each contest he fought in, he'd take his gloves to a "rebbe" on the East Side to have them blessed by the holy man. The nearest Slabodka Sam ever got to the championship was his fight with some m Pat. home early and told Pinkus to see 'to it that he got to bed early in time to get a nice long sleep. He comes to the club the day of the fight all groggy. He hadn't slept a wink. He'd found some old "yeshivah" pal, some fella who used to go to Slabodka with him, and they spent the night trying to finish up some argument about a certain part of the Talmud. This argument had started some two years before and it wasn't finished that night either. I'll bet they're still arguing about it somewhere in Europe right now. At any rate, Sam was in no Irishman. shape for the big battle. And he n uldn't sleep in the morning, tooghes e.; t ither. too.

KEDUSHA The Story of a Sinner Who Remembered By LOUS I.IPSKY .\\\\\\NN\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\>\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\>\\' This short story is by Louis I.ipsky, outstanding Jewish leader, who is also one of our most distinguished writers, and tells the tale of one Yossel. It is a free adaptation from the Yiddish of that master story teller, S. J. Rabinowitz.—The Kditor. The synagogue was filled with worshipers. A little to the right, pressed against the wall, stood a small, bent man, with a Tallith veiling his face. He himself was rigid except for a shudder which often ruffled his Tallrth. He had stood in this posture for some time. The Psalm preceding the shofar blowing had been chanted; the silent prayer had been passed; the Chazan was beginning his song; but the man was oblivious to his surroundings. A deep thundering note broke forth from a thousand voices, followed by a silence in which the soft voice of the reader intoned T'kiyoh, and then the shofar thundered forth its reminder that divine judgment was about to be sealed. When he heard this note, loud and shrill, the man drew himself together with a shudder. He seemed to be transported to the high court. There were the angels, kurriedly floating by, prosI trating themselves, and then cir! cling about the throne of God, whose awing presence seemed to pervade all. There was judgment to be given. "Yossel, Yossel, Yossel!" called the Angel of Mercy, here stands, Master of the World, poor, unhappy Yossel; see, he is alone in the blasts issued more strongly. It was the end. At the final passage a long-drawn-out and more impressive tone was given vent to. On the Resurrection Day his wife, Basha, would also arise. Such a trumpet blast, yea, a thousandfold stronger than this, would thrill the world, for no mortal would press his lips to the shofar, but the Archangel Michael himself. And the sounds would fill the four ends of the earth, from the heights of Sinai to the nethermost regions. All who slumbered in the sod would rise from their beds to behold the light of God's magnificence. The breath of life would sweep over the world, and strong young men would arise, blooming young women, beaming children, and there would be joyful reunions. And his wife, Br.sha, would also world, forsaken, poor, downtrodden worm; let Thy mercy spread over illis ''. 'or she was a righteous worn. him, O Compassionate Father!" The Spirit that Denies interIt was long since he had visited her grave; the mound was lonely and desolate; only the swine were groveling about, thrusting their muzzles into the earth. There was no monument, not a flower nearby; moss covered her last resting place, and ants ran in and out. The Christian church yard was not far from it and the graves were shadowed by green trees. There everyone slept in the midst of his own, surrounded by relatives and friends, but only she lay in a deserted, forgotten corner, all alone. In death, too, she was to be torn from him. The awfulness of a lonely grave! "Yet I alone am to blame. I brought sorrow down upon you, you poor soul,' murmured Yossel, as if to console himself with that confession. "With me it will not ruptedangrily: "Whaf.! He deserves mercy? He who brought on the death of his wife! Whose sin was it that his sons were born over to error?" Yossel heard the accusation, and knew that Satan spoke the truth. In the meantime the shofar an. py? sole him But would her spirit be hapWould she be able to conherself? Would she pardon A picture presents itself to him, and he sees her just as she appeared under the bridal canopy. But what deep sorrow speaks from her eyes! She moves as if in doubt, and he understands what troubles her so, and feels his heart dissolving in grief.

His wife, Basha, who, in the goodness of her heart always welcomed the poor to her table, was especially proud to have the instructor of her children lodged under her roof. All her thoughts were directed to the end that her | tition in the city meant; there wen. two sons, remnants of a large ten hungry laborers struggling for where the whole vicinity was familiar to him—the fields and gardens, the woods and streams. He could not imagine how he could live in another community, especially in a large city, for city life seemed so foreign to him. And, moreover, he could not leave his business. He knew what compee i ence. As he stood in the synagogue on I this day of judgment, where he judged his own life and produced the witnesses against himself, he was forced to confess that only Satan could thus have misled him; could have poisoned his mind with reasons which convinced him that he had better remain in the town. He had no real faith in God. It pained him to leave his business, and there was even a more horrible feeling that filled his heart at the time: it was that the departure of his neighbors would leave their places empty, and he would profit by it. He well knew that this feeling was the decisive reason for his remaining in the town. In his memory now arose the moment when he escorted the departing families from their home.-. How he wept! It touched his heart to see the misfortune of his brethren who were compelled to take up the wanderer's staff. And how it pained him to part with those families with whom he was so friendly that he well nigh considered them blood relatives! The majority of them were members of his congregation, related to one another by bonds of sorrow and friendship. When they wept he was in great distress, and he, too, dropped tearof sincere regret and sorrow; but in a coiner of his heart there lurged s feeling of satisfaction in that all his competitors in business were about to depart, lie felt ashamed when he thought of this, hut he could not banish it from his mind.

Friday, September 18, 18J6 THE JEWISH Fl.ORIDIAN The German Jew In Literature HIS CONTRIBUTION TO ITS DEVELOPMENT %  One of the latest essays by Hugo von Hofmansthal is entitled: "Literature, the Intellectual Territory of a Nation," 'Das Schrifttum als geistiger Etaum der Nation.' Language and thought represent the higher domain of a nation; they impart to it an ethical value and at the same time form the means by which present and coming generation! become acquainted with ir. The immense wealth of German literature with its great variety of intellectual types, furnishes confacts. vincing proof of this view. For centuries, German Jewish intellect lived in this realm. Now this homeland is denied the Jewish writers. They are banished as strangers, foreign to the spirit of the land. They are accused of all kinds of vices, of exerting a disintegrating influence, of being unrenewedj the motives of the Biblical legends are employed again and again, and the religious and metaphysical longing of Jewry present! itself in new form in every ., of time. The Jews live in literature as no other people. It is therefore in their writings more than anywhere else that they reveal their will and destiny.

He was esteemed by his contemporaries and gained the friendship of men like Kan' and Leasing. "There is only one Mendelssohn!" These words of Kant describe best how this Jewish writer was esteemed by the best minds of his century. They admired the clarity of his mind, his mastery of writing and, most of all, his character. This character stood for intellectual honesty, deep humanism, and devout service in the work of building up a new liberal worldview. When Mendelssohn's book "Jerusalem" was published, in which an atc-mpt was made to connect the Jewish religion with the new spirit of enlightenment, Kant wrote to Mendelsshon: "You have succeeded in reconciling your religion with such a freedom of conscience as one would never have considered possible and of which no other faith can boast."

In Florida as in the rest of the world we have been concerned not alone with our own problems but with the problems of our fellow Jews throughout the entire Diaspora. When the Jew suffers in Poland, when he is persecuted in Germany, threatened in other parts of the world, we Jews as one concerned with the fate of the other, must necessarily stop to think. True we have done and are doing our bit. though by no means what we should, to alleviate by monetary contributions, the lot of our suffering brethern. That we in Florida, and particularly in Greater Miami have been sanly defficient in our duty in this respect cannot be denied. Yes. large sums of money have been raised. But. may we ask. whose money has that been? What about the average every day businessman, or professional man? Is it not true that the great majority of these have never answered the call of their fellow men. More important perhaps, and a problem that must be solved, is that of those Floridians who are Jews only and when it may cause them to shine in the limelight of publicity, or when they want to impress their non-Jewish friends with their importance in some political sense. In the past year we have had the sad experiences of men proposing to control the so-called Jewish vote the self-same men who when any communal duty of any nature. Jewish or non-Jewish is to be done, are always, eternally absent. How about those of our Jews, whenever any question of asserting the inherent self-respect that every Jew as such and as an American citizen should possess, become "Ma Yofis" Jews and cringe, and bow in shame, when they should be asserting their manliness and decency. These self-same individuals, who are too eager whether asked or not to rush to officials or to others to tell them "pay no attention to what j! these Jews are saying, it means nothing."

Much may be attributed to the example's shown by the Sholem Lodge of Bnai Brith in numerous instances where the slightest traces of anti-Semitism began to exhibit its nefarious purposes. If we are to learn a lessson. if we are to profit by history then we as Jews must realize that we can earn the respect of our fellow men by being ourselves that we can retain our own respect by living our own lives .... that we can contribute more to the progress of humanity, of decent living, if we honestly carry out the principles and practices so splendidly set forth by our own codes or ethics and clean livings.

(S\A £j A 4*'M um r {u ^* s '' f, x W OT LONG AGO I was present at a lecture on a 1" great Jewish personality. The lecturer was young, and this is how he spoke: "The striking thing was his Jewishness. ... He worked thus because of his Jewishness. And his Jewishness rose up within him. People spurned him because of his Jewishness. ... He tried to rebel against Jewishness. ." The word "Jewishness" was used every now and then, and each time with but the vaguest notion of its meaning. And they all do it—all these bright young debonair speakers who are rising in our midst. They all use the word as though the mere fact of being born a Jew constituted, without any responsibility attaching to the subject, the prerogative of membership of some strange aristocracy among men. Therefore it is fitting that we should sit down together, you and I, and ask ourselves seriously: "What IS Jewishness?" II C LEARLY it must mean some characteristic or group of characteristics born of national conditioning. But how does national conditioning fashion such characteristics? Perhaps in manyways; but mainly through the process of history; and it is in the history of the Hebrew people during the past three thousand years that we must search for the diverse forces that have fashioned this quality of Jewishness. A great student of history, Winwood Reade, wrote in his book, "The Martyrdom of Man," these penetrating words: "When Nature selects a people to endow them with glory and with wealth, her first proceeding is to massacre their bodies; her second, to debauch their minds. She begins with famine, pestilence and war; next, force and rapacity above; chains but whom the fortune hunter learns afterwards to love for herself alone." The Hebrew people went through such a painful evolution as Winwood Reade describes. They, in the early years of their national existence, suffered famine and pestilence and war; they, too, knew chains and slavery; and they, not merely in years, but throughout the course of their persistence, had force and rapacity directed against them —still have, indeed, today. In the case of the Hebrew people. Nature has not been over-hasty to wash her black and bloody hands, and slavery below. She uses evil as the raw material of good; though her aim is always noble, her earliest means are base and cruel. But, as soon as a certain point is recahed, she washes her black and bloody hands, and uses agents of a higher kind. Having converted the animal instinct of selfdefense into the ravenous lust of wealth and power, that also she transforms into ambition of a pure and lofty kind. At first knowledge is sought only for the things which it will buy, the daily bread indispensable to life; and those trinkets of body and mind which vanity demands. Yet these low desires do not always and entirely possess the human soul. Wisdom is like the heiress of the novel who is at first courted only for her wealth, And yet in their case, too, she has used evil as the raw material of good. For persecution, more than anything else, has been, however ironically, the moulding influence and preserving force of Jewish life. Persecution refined the Hebrew people from a primitime herd to a nation that bestowed great gifts on men. Before the Jews were subjected to "the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune" they were a rabble mob of barbarian tribes, ranging the countryside for plunder. It was the persecution of Biblical times which first made a people of them unifying the tribes into an harmonious whole and purging that whole by a long and painful process, of its barbarism and savagery. It was persecution which sired their Judaism, the cherished fount and inspiration of their lives; and it was persecution which mellowed that Judaism, taking it beyond the bounds of mere religion to a philosophy and a manner of life. Persecution was the most pointed and constant influence in Jewish life: and persecution called into being a multitude of deep reactions. There was fear, because the presecuted live in constant danger, there was a strengthening of pride and obstinancy, must, in very protection, bee,,me humble and >\elding of the moral and ethical code of the race. Inthere was a strengthening of pride tnd obstinancy, a feeling of resentment against the persecutors an.I a determination to persist with a certain way of life at all costs. There was both a strengthening and a weakening of the moral and ethical code of the rtce. Internally this code grew stronger because people who are oppressed know how utterly dependent they are upon one another; they come to realize with poignant force the fundamental necessity for the fidelity of man to man.

Pane Fifty-Four THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN Friday, September 18, 1936 JUDAISM... WHAT OF THE FUTURE A NEW YEAR MESSAGE BY RABBI ABRAHAM S. JACOBSON Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation. And I looked, and there was no one to help, and I was astonished, and there was no one to support; and then my own arm aided me, and my fury— this it was that upheld me. (Isaiah 63-5). Judaism is a product of countless generations, a living tradition which had its source in the days of the Patriarchs and ran its course through many lands, many climes, many ages, down to our own day. This Great Tradition is the origin, the inspiration and the driving force of all that makes for our life as Jews. The past year in the life of the Jew has demonstrated that this Great Tradition is no dead theory but a living, moving source of power, finding new means of Inspiring and guiding Jewish life. Confronted with oppression, pogroms, false promises, cries in the wilderness, the Jew realized that lie must rely on his own arm to uphold him. Notwithstanding the obstacles and impediments obstructing his way in the rebuilding and rehabilitating his homeland the Jewish pioneer is marching on. In rebuilding a Jewish civilization in the land where a great Jewish civilization ajres ago held aloft the torch of learning and philosophy and religion, we are certain that 5 v\\\\\\\\\\\\%\\\\\\V' A HAPPY NEW YEAR £ tstssa DEALE Automatic Music Co.

For the ensuing year our spirit must not become embittered because for so long a time we have been the outstanding victims of intolerance the objects of persecution and religious bigotry. Looking back over the boundless sea of tossing mountainous waves, upon the crests and in the troughs of which the people of the world from time to time have been thrown about or have floundered, one beholds the miracle of a single people savagely flung about whenever there was a storm and time after time apparently drowning, yet always in the end emerging with unimpaired vigor, ready and eager once more to resume the road lading to the promised land of the spirit. Much a* we expect for the future of Judiaism from the new life in Fritz Israel, we cannot, however, and dare not depend upon that alone. If Jews are to take firm |! HAPPY NEW YEAR J$ 'i SAM LESNOFF IJH of x v CENTRAL RESTAURANT j | 13th St. and N. E. 2nd Ave. | hold of this tradition again, they must be awakened to their duty through knowledge—knowledge of the true meaning and significance of the Torah, of the Jewish Tradition. To the Biblical words: "And Jacob awakened mishnoso, out of his sleep," a sage in the Midrash makes the striking emendation Mishnaso Jacob awakened "because of what he learned." And Jacob of today too, will awaken out if his spiritual stupor through study, through learning, through knowledge of what Judaism really is and truly stands for. With Judaism vital and alive, the Jew, despite the efforts of a cruel world to destroy him, will be ... must be ... triumphant. On the threshold of the New Year, the Jew must learn to say again in the words of our ancestors standing at the foot of Sinai: "N'a'ase Venishma!" We shall do and we shall understand." Let the Jew endeavor to do to practice, to live its Judaism burning in his life and kindle it in the lives of his children, and the future of Judaism will be assured. Storms and winds are constantly endeavoring to blow out the light of Judaism. We shall not lose faith or trust, but shall keep on rekindling that light until the light of day comes to illumine all the world. May the coming New Year inspire the Jews of the world to greater accomplishments. But when ye pray, say our—not mine or thine; Our debts, our debtors, and our daily bread!

With such an assortment of musical instruments one can well believe in the existence of a great symphonic body during Israel's reign. To quote a passage from Chronicles 1. Chapter 23, "And 4,000 praised the Lord with instruments which I made, said David, to praise Thee with" Think of it, an orchestra of 1,000 musicians. I doubt whether such a great body of instrumentalists have since bee.i employed for any purpose, to say the least for a religious fete. Israel's history of organized song begins with the Sacred Song. In the Chapter 80 of Isaiah we find the following sentence: "Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a hdly solemnity is kept." And the Prophet Amos cries out aloud: j "Take thou away from me the i noise of thy songs, for 1 will not hear the melody of thy violins." Prom this we may gather that vocal and instrumental music were both employed during the services in ancient Israel. Next to the Sacred SOUK came the military music, for in those days ii was a necessary requisite in warlike exploits. When Jehoshafat went to battle against the hosts of Ammon and Moab, he placed a choir of singers in front of his army. Both instrumental and vocal music calso played an important part in the battles of Jericho and Kiddeon. The Triumphal Song followed the synans Love songs are also alluded to in the Psalms. In Isaiah we find: "How I will sing to my well beloved, a song of my beloved touching his vineyard."

In Athens, the false witness was liable to a heavy fine and if convicted thrice for the same offense, lost all civil rights.

Page Thirty THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN Friday, September 18, 1936 WE FACE ANOTHER NEW YEAR A New Year Message By BORIS SCHI.ACHM AN Executive Director Miami V. M. H. A. A^ain we face another .New Year. With it we again face a new situation in the ever changing world. Never have we had so trying a test of outJewish loyalty. Never has the youth of our people been confronted with a decision they must make and cannot a v o i d. Nationally and i n t ernationally organiza tions are striving not merely to displace, but to destroy us. It must not lie. It shall not be. We Jews have a heritage of great value to the world. We personallj the powei ntribution. We can, if heig hten the happim -t umanity and enhanc and a ilization. For these things we must perils! BH : : ail. It is not >..->. It ipainfully difficult. But we shall convert our obstacles into opportunities. This we shall do with the determination of religious devotion, national and spiritual c o n s ciousness with the persistence of a principled piety. With God and the history of a sell" sacrificing people as our inspiration w e shall not falter. With hope as i instimulus we shall not fail. Let this be t h e aspiration ami the effort of every Jew in American life. I e '. the unAmericanism of an Kdmondson or a True, let the emulation oa their part of the despicable and unmentionable Hitler urge us on to realize the longing need of our brethren everywhere and by our low of humanity throughout the universe. With this I gladly greet all Jews, wherever they may be. fieldand orchards; and a certain amount of grain had to be left uncut in the corners of the fields for them. The unfilled growth in the Sabbatical year and the so-called tithe of the poor wen' also guaranteed to the needy. These provisions are over and above the voluntary charity which the Torah repeatedly enjoins: in addition to the benefactions of generous individuals, the poor were legally entitled to certain minimum dues. T HE great legal structure of the Talmud is marked by a definitely religious as well as an abstractly leiral viewpoint; and much of the Rabbinic law is strikingly progressive, even for today. In the Talmudic period, charity was made systematic; and both the collection and distribution of money were put into the hands of responsible officials. These men hac tiie authority to attach the properly of those who refused to contribute in accordance with their ability. The law even specifies the length of time that may elapse after a man settles in a community before he becomes liable for his shares of the charity tax. The recipients of charity are safeguarded by elaborate regulations, designed to protect their morale as well as their physical welfare; for instance, the Talmud states the minimum amount of relief that must be given to a transient beggar. A NOTHER feature of Talmudic Halakah is a remarkable series of laws, extending over a period of centuries, for the protection of women. Whereas the older law left the woman almost without legal rights and financially dependent on her father, husband, or other male relatives, the Rabbinic legislation gave her an increasingly larger measure of material and moral independence. These laws are, however, too involved for me even to summai iz i now. T HE TALMUD likewise contains interesting regulations about fair practices in business. Misrepresentation of goods must be strictly avoided; wares are not to be tricked out artfully to make them appear better than they are. Adulterated or diluted products may be sold at retail if the truth about them is told to the purchaser, but we may not sell them to another merchant, who we may assume is not honest in his motives. Some authorities even condemn giving premiums to children and price-cutting as unfair competi(Continued on Page 38) t Social Justice Among Jews (Continued from Page 2'.') First, blood revenge was prohibited, and qpuns were established to distinguish between deliberate and accidental homicides; those who inadvertently caused the death of another were protected from the vengeance of the victim's family. When you consider that blood revenge was once an institution as sacred as is the institution of private property today, you will realize the revolutionary character of this Biblical legislation. Second, the Torah contains several laws designed to limit slavery. A slave of Jewish birth could be held in servitude for a maximum of six years; he was, in fact, an indentured servant rather than his master's property. It was also provided that if a brutal slave owner does physical injury to a slave—knocks out a tooth, for example, the slave automatically acquires his freedom. (The Rabbis say this provision applies to nonJewish slave-.) Further, a runaway slave is not to be returned to his master—according to the Rabbis; even if the slave is Gentile and the master Jewish, this law is applicable. T HE BIBLE also protects the free laborer: It strictly forbids the employer to hold back the daily wage of a workman, or even a part thereof. Loans secured by pledges are regulated: utensils used in preparing food cannot be pledged; clothing may be held by the creditor as a pledge only for a day at a time—at nightfall it must be returned to the debtor. And when such a loan is made, the lender may not enter the poor man's dwelling to select the object he will take as security; thus the borrower is spared humiliation. Biblical law forbids the taking of interest from a fellow-Jew; and there was a periodical cancellation of debts every seventh year. T HE TORAH also provides for the indigent.

Friday, September 18, 19S6 THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN Paare Nine THE REVOLUTION IN DEFENSE STRATEGY A New Idea for Eradicating Anti-Semitism Is Making Headway, Says This Writer By LOUIfl M1NSKY T HE past year has witnessed the spread of a new outlook with respect to fighting anti-Semitism. The chief element in this outlook i.> an impatience with surface solutions and a conviction that it is necessary to go down to root causes. The failure of Jewish strategy in the German situation has created the belief that old methods are ineffective, if not futile. The idea that anti-Semitism is something primarily for Jews to be fighting has been largely discredited. That the Jewish problem can be divorced from all other problems it is realized is impossible in the complicated world in which we live. It is an unrealistic approach which may achieve temporary solutions and give the Jews a breathing spell, but is unsound as an ultimate disposition of the question. W HILE the German situation has demonstrated the unwisdom of a strategy in which the initiative is taken by Jews, it has also proven something else. It has shown us that the forces of decency are helpless upon a background of economic misery. The slow accumulation of economic, social and political abuses has hardened the hearts of Germans and made many of them immune to the elementary amenities of civilized behavior. It is for this reason that protests and appeals have been without effect. The German people in large numbers have cast aside such keystones of progress as justice, decency, religion and morality and substituted in their place a ruthless and selfish philosophy of life which is without parallel in the history of modern times. T HIS new weltaanschaung has caused a revolution in the thinking of those outside of Germany, particularly those concerned most closely with the solution of the Jewish problem. It has precipitated a new conception not only of the Jewish question, but of many other questions. It has, for instance, been responsible for the initiation of a new kind of diplomacy and it has especially brought unto being a new idea for solving the problem of peace, based upon the diagnosis that the cause of war is essentially economic. While in the past attempts were made to maintain peace by a sort of patching up process which dealt witn individual situations, peace societies today are stressing a reorganization of the economic processes of the world as the only basic solution to the problem of war. A redistribution of the world's raw materials, a reallocation of colonies and similar measures are seen to be imperative for a final solution. The whole basic structure of our thinking and conduct and of society itself must be reorganized so that no nation will have any excuse for war. J EWS, also, have been affected by this new idea of attacking problems by eliminating their fundamental causes and the conviction has strengthened that in order to solve the Jewish problem we must go down to root causes. This means that attitudes for combating prejudice must be revolutionized. Jews and others interested in the problem of anti-Semitism must be concerned with new factors hitherto regarded as having no connection with the question of proper attitudes between Jews and Christians. T HE specific approach which i.gaining favor may be reduced to the formula that the solution of the Jewish problem is inextricably bound up with the institution of a higher morality for the entire community. This is to say that it is necessary to establish justice in general and a higher morality in society at large. The strategy which attempts to secure justice only for the Jews and for no one else achieves no lasting results, since the treatment of the Jews is at the whim of many other factors, social, economic, political, religious, psychological. A movement against labor, for example, may develop into a movement against the Jews. The injustice of men toward men in their social relationship produces such a phenomenon as the Black Legion, which becomes identified with Jew hatred and hatred of every other minority. Economic abuses produce hunger and misery which result in blind passion and the inevitable hunt for scapegoats. In other I words, Jews are victims of many I outbreaks of injustice and passion which have nothing at all to do I with themselves. So that their only safeguard is to promote justice everywhere.

LOUIS SHOCHET Editor and Publisher, the Jewish Floridian Once again we fall in line with the dictates of custom commanding a publisher to write a message. As we, editorially speaking, reminisce, close our eyes and mentally picture the kaledioscopic panorama presented by Jewish life throughout the past year, we cannot help but smile at the foibles of our many friends ... the furore created by perhaps unintentionally leaving out the name of a guest at a social function ... or as one of our subscribers very succinctly put it "dressing up the story of her party a little bit" ... or even committing the grave and unforgivable crime of having placed at the head of a story the name of one woman rather than another yet smiling begin to realize that at the very bottom of it all we, in this area, despite all our faults despite all our shortcomings are in the forefront of what we confidently believe will be a renaissance of Jewish life here Just imagine ... a renaissance of Jewish life culturally religiously above all in evoking, creating and bringing ubout a feeling of Jewish consciousness that will per se bring about a feeling of self respect that has too often been lacking among many of our compatriots .... Perhaps we, in this area, suffer too much with an overabundance of those who aspire to leadership in the community who neither by education, training or fitness are deserving of this leadership 1 erhaps we are too leneint with this type of individual or even with those who assume certain titles, even that of the ministry, who by no stretch of the imagination are entitled to this appellation Perhaps we have permitted some of our own people and even those of the non-Jewish faith to accredit certain rights to individuals who rather than doing us good are by their misrepresentations creating harm for all Perhaps this is due in major part to our own good Ra ib: i either through jealousy of each other, or because they are too lenient, have been and are afraid to take the stand necessary to protect their own good names as well as the fair name of the Jewish community I'm just wondering whether or not there is a feeling of distrust that has been slowly created and is now gradually coming to the surface between laymen and Rabbis .. that should never have existed and should be immediately eradicated both have sufficient work to be done in the community, each in their own spheres, and together in other fields that there is sufficient glory for all ... I In the field of Kashruth throughout the state there has grown up | a feeling of distrust that has brought about a feeling of repugnance to everything that is connected with matters religious as soon as Kashruth is talked about why must it be that as soon as a butcher's or a shoched's name is mentioned in Florida, one feels that he is dealing with or talking ( about individuals that cannot be trusted ... as if with people out of the pale of honesty and clean dealing much of course is to be blamed on butchers not sticking with one another in the interest of kashruth and square dealing (to their own monetary loss) In the field of Jewish education and perhaps here we tread on our very own Talmud Torah in this area has been, unfortunately, something to be wished for in the future rather than something we now possess.

Page Twenty THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN Friday, September 18, 1936 JEWS AND CHRISTIANS MUST STAND TOGETHER By DR. IVAN I.EE HOLT President! the Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America L ONG before there ever was a National Conference of Jews and Christians, I came in contact with a friendly Jewish rabbi whose tt-mple was across the street from my church. In addition to the Friday night and Saturday morning services he had a service on Sunday morning. For many years he had been in the city before I came, and he received me most graciously. W E took walks together and talked about our common problems. He invited me to preach for him, and I began to speak in every campaign for Jewish charities. More than once there were held in my church services anil meetings in behalf of Jewish war sufferers. When my friend, the rabbi, died I had memorial services for him in my church. I am sure nothing of that kind had ever been done before. I N these more recent years, the successor to that rabbi and 1 have drawn our two congregations together by all kinds of co-operative enterprises. This association lias fallen within the period of activity of the National Conference of Jews and Christians. Everywhere now Christian ministers and .li wish rabbis are fraternizing in D manner I have been fortunate to know for twenty years. I am not -ii much concerned about the past, however, as I am about the future. !i will always be a satisfaction to me to remember that 1 was among the first, perhaps the very first, Christian minister to recognize publicly many things that Jews and Christians hold in common. GREETINGS A Happy and Prosperous New Year $ W. H. THOMAS DAIRY t LI 90] S. W. 65th Ave. The Pineal in Dairy Products Evergreen 392 • •• SINCERE WISHES for A HAPPY NEW YEAR C. A. BURNET Warehouse & Transfer Co., Inc. 20 \. E. 11th St. MIAMI W E are living in a time when this new friendship experiences its strains. The anti-Semitic movements around the world make us in the United States realize that ua cannot escape similar agitations. Jews and Christians must have more than sentimentality in their friendship if it is to survive these difficult days. No man can read the history of either group without realizing that some apologies for misunderstandings are due from both. I know the Christians should kneel to ask the Jews' forgiveness. A S I look into the future, I can think of nothing which is more ineffective, because it is both poor taste and offensiveness, than for a Jew to lecture Christians on their Christian duty. Unfortunately, there is likely to be a good deal of this. Every time I hear it from a friend among the rabbis, I want to go to him and say: "My friend, please do not do that. That is not the way." The Christians need to b<' lectured on their Christian duties, but we Christian ministers must do that. There is enough in the present world situation to create in us the same passion and resentment which the rabbis feel. C HRISTIANS are indebted to Jews and Jews are indebted to Christians. I hope we can succeed in convincing our American people in villages and country towns what the more sympathetic and understanding: of the cities have come 1 to see. Attacks on Jews are attacks on religion. Not simply in Germany, but in other lands as well, anti-Semitic movements are anti-religious movements. Jews and Christians must stand together for the defense of religious faith.

"Give him," the Cherub cries, "If it shall be Thy will, The greatest thing a fool should prize, The gift of keeping still.

Men have curtailed the liberties of men—freedom of speech of assembly, of press, of conscience. The desire of man for mutual unde-standing; faith in that which unites them — their common humanity, the hope of a warless world—these are drying up. In their place are distrust. suspicion, even hate. A nation is teaching hate to its little children, to its people, to other peoples. There is danger that the world is falling into the grip of the ignorant, the prejudiced, the violent. The world they are trying to will into being will be a very different world. The civilization they would build is not the kind to which we aspire. Men standin ize tha which strive to avert the disaster which is overtaking us. Even in dark Germany, there are men of good will. We heard their courageous we assume that as in the case of the crops, the cycle will ultimately and inevitably turn; that there will be a rebirth; that the ideals of democracy, of liberty of conscience, of speech, of a world without war, of fraternity of men— that these ideals so fundamental tu our civilization will flourish again? And in that effort and sacrifice we, as Jewish women, must take our part—for it is revealed to us as in a blinding light how our fate as Jews hangs on the triumph of these ideals. What is it that we as Jewish women in a generation of destiny can do? What counts? An understanding of what is at stake there is no room for indifference— confusion—defeatism--and the wisdom to see the importance of working together. In pooling and organizing our efforts lies our strength. May the New Year we are about to celebrate bring us that understanding and that wisdom.

Page Twelve THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN Friday, September 18, 1986 The United States in 5696 The upward trend of the graph of American economic recovery reflected itself in the life of the Jewish community of the United States •luring 6696. The past year can be regarded as a period of stabilization in every phase of organized Jewish life. The depression, almost forgotten, no longer barricaded the advance and initiative of the important organizations, fund-raising efforts, cultural endeavors and other specifically Jewish projects. From this point of view 5696 can safely be classified as the best year American Jewry has enjoyed since 1930. While predictions that Jewish life in this country would divide itself more and more according to economic strata were not continued, there were evident two sharply demarcated currents in Jewish leadership. These currents were at various times interpreted as having their source in the Zionist and non-Zionist philosophies of Jewish life. Last year these two groups came to a definite parting of the ways on the issue of the World Jewish Congress. A bitter struggle convulsed American Jewry for almost the entire year, with both siiies making strcmiouefforts to win the support of a majority of the Jewish population. If the Washington conference of the American Jewish Congress, which elected the American delegation to the World Jewish Congress, may be regarded as a criterion, the World .[.wish Congress idea won the final victory. The same differences Of Opinion wen' also evident in the attitude of these two groups on the German Jewish situation and on fund-raising efforts lo, Palestine and for European relief. One of the highlights of the y.ar was the unanimous election of Dr. Stephen S. Wise to the presidency of the Zianist Organization of America, brought about by the crisis in Palestine, which compelled American Zionists to strengthen their leadership. The brown shadow of Hitlerism hung over the American Jewish scene no less than over Europe. It was not only that fund-raising organizations were primarily occupied with furthering the exodus of Jews from N'aziland, but on practically every other Jewish front the Xazi situation left its imprint. Herman Jewish refugees constituted a large portion of the German quota to the United States, the number admitted being expected to approach 4,000 by the end of 1936. A number of youngsters, children of Nazi Victims, were adopted in American Jewish homes, while Jewish college fraternities and sororities undertook to provide scholarships and room and hoard for German Jewish students admitted to this country. The University in Exile continued to employ a number of distinguished emigre savants. A delegation of British Jews visited the United States on a mission to interest American Jewry in a huge exodus plan aimed to transplant 100,000 German Jews in four years to Palestine and other countries. The Joint Distribution Committee and the United 1'alestine Appeal, which engaged in separate drives last year, refused to he diA I1AITY NKW YKAK BLUE HOWL CAKK & PASTRY SHOP MRS. ECKERT 155!) S.

The aggressive campaign under the auspices of Hadassah raised over $100,000 for the Youth Aliyah, which enabled hundreds of German Jewish children to be settled in Palestine. The anti-Nazi boycott maintained its unbroken front. It was helped by various governmental actions against Germany. The boycott also spread to Cultural spheres when Arturo Toscanini gave up his directorship of the Philharmonic Society to direct the first concert of the new Palestine Symphony, and the board of directors of the Philharmonic invited Wilhelm Fuertwaengler to succeed him. A barrage of protests and threats of a boycott forced the withdrawal of the invitation to the German conductor. A number of American universities refused to participate in the celebration of Heidelberg's 550th anniversary, Ithough Yale, Columbia, Cornell, Michigan and Harvard, among others, sent official representatives. Harvard, however, again refused a scholarship from "Putzi" Hanfstaengel, Hitler's press adjutant. BEST WISHES for a HAPPY NKW YKAR GRIFFEN TIKE CO. 36 N. W.

The fight against American participation in the Berlin Olympics reached its climax last year at the A. A. U. convention and was ended when an American team, which included five Jews and ten negroes, sailed for Berlin after last-minute efforts to raise the necessary funds. A huge anti-Nazi sports carnival was held in New York under the auspices of organized labor. Although the president of the United States, because of established diplomatic conventions, could not undertake any official act of disapproval of the Nazi regime, he did on several occasions express in unmistakable terms his abhorrence of Nazi persecution of Jews and Catholics and his repugnance at racial discrimination. Speaking in behalf of the president, Secretary of the Interior Ickcs delivered a speech at a United Palestine Appeal dinner which 1 came as close as being an official reprimand to Nazi anti-Semitism as his official position permitted.
