Such Is "HIS" Will
"Rabbi Rosenbloom is dead" was the message uttered
in hushed and awed tones last Saturday night throughout
Greater Miami. Horror stricken faces became visible every-
where that one went; Jew and non-Jew alike hesitated to be-
lieve this terrible news was true. Alas, it was.
Devoted husband and father, self-sacrificing son. staunch
and true leader in Israel, this young man. but twenty-nine
years of age, ever bearing aloft the torch of true traditional
Torah. at the beginning of a career which held much for the
future of Judaism, had been torn away from wife, daughter,
father and a host of friends.
What could one say at such a time tears streamed
down the face's of young and old alike for did not man,
woman and child all love this great man in Israel had he
not always been a faithful friend of those in need those
sick and in distress had he not always consoled those
who were bereaved?
Worldly goods he had none his was a vast treasure
of spiritual heritage which he prized above all else ... his was
the task, self-assumed, to bring the glories of Jewry to all
. material gains ... se'fish aggrandizement was foreign to
him here was a true rabri in Israel His was the pleas-
ure of teaching the young the elementals of our faith the
older ones the hidden beauties of Talmudic lore.
Here was truly one who led an exemplary life, such as
did the sages of old ... a rabbi whom Israel could ill afford
What can one say? The loss is irreplaceable the
void left in the heart of Israel ... in the hearts of his vast
host of friends cannot be filled.
What can one do? Let us pledge to emulate the life
thus too soon closed let us by our acts prove our devotion
to the sainted life closed by "remembering," not" forget-
And as we recite the courageous justification of "Dayon
Hoemes," and say such is "HIS" will... not be content there-
with, but constructively show the appreciation and the love
we bear that departed leader in Israel, Rabbi David I. Ros-
enbloom of sainted memory.

Pre-eminent among the minds
that have in this age affected hu-
man thought and human action
stand those of three Jews: Karl
Marx, Sigmund Freud and Albert
Einstein. Note that all three, as
Europeans, belong to the realm of
German civilization. About that
fact alone a volume could be writ-
ten. But let it pass. Let us for a
moment dwell on these three as
The father of Karl Max, an at-
torney of Trier, became a "con-
vert" to Protestantism in 1824 and
caused himself and his wife and
his children, including Karl, then
aged six, to be baptised. It takes
no great sagacity today to imagine
in what an atmosphere of spiritual
falseness, of Jewish self- hatred,
of flight, avoidance, inner servility
emphasized by a specious outer
freedom, the boy grew up. Hatred
of Judaism and hatred of him-
self as a Jew were necessarily the
continuous "trauma" of his child-
hood. So it is no wonder that at
the age of twenty-five, in 1843,
we find Karl Marx in his single
and isolated pronouncement of the
' Jewish problem (Zur Judcnfrage)
1 identifying capitalism with Juda-
| isman identification as false in
fact then as nowand prophesying
the future necessary annihilation
The apostate must hate the ob-
ject of his natural loyalites. In
'Spain the Jewish apostates became
prelates an I persecutors of their
people and ils faith. Karl Marx, in
order to make sure that Judaism
be destroyed, elaborated the the-
ory that all cultural and ideologi-
cal forms are only superstructures
dictated b y economic causes.
Change the economic structure and
these superstructures will be de-
stroyed. In a Socialist society
there would be neither Judaism nor
Jews. And that was precisely
what he needed to prove in order
to appease the guilt-feeling and
self-hatred at the core of him. His
doctrine and Judaism are, as he
desired them to be, mutually in-
compatible to the point of annihi-
lation. Yet the mad and tragic
farce of history brings it about
that the Jewish people is today
persecuted not least for being sup-
posed to have fathered a doctrine
which in cold fact negates th:it
people and its history and its faith
and character and was meant to
do so by the apostate who brought
But the world-process or the will
of God the second being a far
sounder philosophical way of
speaking than the first provides
us with certain comforts and com-
pensations. We could not so clear-
ly and so unerringly analyze these
intricate matters were it not for
the incomparable discoveries of
Sigmund Freud. Now it is not
known in America, where Freud's
collected works have not been
translated, how often and how
feelingly he has emphasized his
Jewishness nor how clearly he has
expressed his insight into the fact
that people have rationalized not a
little of their resistance to his
teachings by an anti-Semitic me-
chanism. His Jewish feeling, al-
ways affirmative, has grown in
warmth with the years, and in
his old age he has regretted that
his immense preoccupations left
him so little time for specifically
Last May Freud celebrated his
eightieth birthday. Thomas Mann,
the German, went from his Swiss
exile to Vienna to pay a magnifi-
cent tribute to the venerable sage.
In America, so far as I could ob-
serve, a single silly article in a
Sunday newspaper alone marked
the occasion. The world, even our
American world, is "repressing"
Freud or "denying" Freud. Why?
This great man and good Jew has
with the stern tenderness of a phy-
sician uncovered the causes of
things. He has taught us that
men punish most mercilessly the
actions which they are burning to
; commit but dare not, and seek to
! degrade those whom they fear to
[ be superior to themselves; he has
taught us that no invention and no

So the reactionaries everywhere
feign to despise Freud's teachings.
By the light of them they would
wither and crumble like leaves in
a flame. And the Marxians? (I
do not mean the non-doctrinnaire
proponents of economic coopera-
tion and justice!) They must re-
press Freud too. And above all
the Jewish Marxians must do so.
For those unfathomable and uni-
versal inner processes which ulti-
mately determine human fate are
evidently prior to "methods of pro.
duction" in the realms of both
time and value, and it is much

the unleased aggressive instincts
of the id to liquidate the possess-
ing classes and, next, to destroy
heretics by firing-squads. And

tuals accept Freud or not? The
two tests are ultimately one and
the same test.
I must speak far more tenta-
tively of that great man and Jew

Einstein. For I cannot grasp his
teachings as I can those of Freud.
But even the first insight won by
him shattered both the universe
as a machine and the Marxian ma-
terialist universe as well. For if
the mere description of any motion
is impossible until we know where
the describer stands and if that
describer is free initially to choose
where he shall stand, then we have
no more reason to doubt the pri-

Tidbits From Everywhere
Bigotry Is Routed
The campaign is happily closed ... the people have ex-
pressed their choice in no unmistakable terms and both
victors and vanquished as true Americans will once again
forget their differences and work for the happiness of
America and American democracy.
Yet there is one thing which stands out and thus
standing out deserves the attention of all Americans be di-
rected to it ... We in Florida, as in other states throughout
the country, have been flooded with literature inspired
by principles foreign to American ideas and ideals ... fi-
nanced by Hitlerites and demagogues reiterating the
false, absurd calumnies against Jews, Catholics .. repeating
the stories of the mystical Elders of Zion domination of
Roosevelt by the international bankers.
Magazines that are vile in their thoughts and viler still
in their utterances have been circulated throughout the state
by men who are to be pitied rather than scorned letters
by so-called "loyal patriots" have reached the voters of
Florida full of lies and machinations against Jews and Cath-
olics and appealing in all instances that voters support the
Republican party elect Calloway and Landon and thus
defeat the Jew find Catholic-owned and negro-dominated
Roosevelt, ran one of the circular letters.
We studied the election returns ONE THING
STANDS OUT ... IN FLORIDA THERE IS NO ROOM FOR
BIGOTRY wherever bigotry, intolerance, race hatred and
Hitlerism reared its ugly head it was routed by the ballots
of honest citizens and clear thinking Americans ... a clear
minded, honest principled, American thinking daily and weak-
ly press throughout Florida expressed itself in terms that
were definite and certain.
The people of Florida have spoken and truly "Kol
Hamon k'kol Shaddai" (the voice of the people is as the voice
of the Almighty) has never been more applicable than now.

Now It Can Be Told
Now that the election is over,
and we can't be charged with stir-
ring up trouble, we can tell you a
few things that happened back-
stage during the campaign .
This, of course, is strictly confi-
dential The so-called non-
existent "Jewish vote" was a tre-
mendous issue in the campaign
don't let anybody kid you .
Some of the advisers to the Re-
publican ^igh command insisted
that if Landon was to win New
York state he had to get the "Jew.
ish vote" The biggest single
contributor for that .T V ; ': activ-
ity for Landon wa ;;er W.
Straus ... A clever publicity man
convinced him that the best way
to speak to the Jewish voters on a
Jewish basis was to defend Lan-
don against an alleged whispering
campaign that he was an anti-
Semite .The truth is that Roose-
velt, Farley and Charlie Michel-
son passed the word to leave the
Jewish issui' religiously alone .
The Eastern Landon headquarters
issued mimeographed instructions
to speakers for Jewish audiences
. The punch line read as fol-
lows, after a few paragraphs of
praise for what former Republican
Presidents did to protest against
Jewish persecution abroad: "It
mey be emphasized that this of-
fers a striking contrast to the in-
action and silence with which the
present administration has re-
garded the present persecution of
Jews in Germany" The joker
in this statement is that the Lan-
don supporters Felix M. War-
burg, Joseph Proskauer and other
important members of the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee were al-
ways of the opinion that Washing-

cedure in automobile manufacture
is to make new models with cer-
tain changes one year and other
changes the following announce-
ment time, but this year Chevrolet

It is because of the complete re-
designing of the 1937 models that
such a large expenditure for re-
tooling and rearrangement was
necessary, Mr. Coyle pointed out.
Detroit and Michigan shared
largely in the Chevrolet expendi-
ture of $26,000,000. The plants at
Flint expended $10,000,000 and
those in Detroit $8,000,000. Two
million dollars were spent in Sag-
inaw, while in Muncie, Ind., and
Indianapolis a like amount was di-
vided between the parts factories
and the commercial body division.
Bay City, Mich., factories expended
nearly half a million dollars. More
than half a million dollars were
spent by miscellaneous divisions

An Appeal for the Wandering
By AL SEGAL
From Mildred Douglass (who
seems concerned with my ever-
lasting soul( I have a tract, "Is the
Jew Still First on God's Prophetic
Program?" (Jewish Evangeliza-
tion Series No. 3'.
It has to do with the difficult
matter of bringing Jews to Jesus.
The Rev. David L. Cooper (au-
thor of the tract' knows how hard
"The nation of Israel ... is a
very intellectual class of people,"
he says. "This fact demands ii
high standard of education and
training on the part of the mis-
sionary to the Jews if he desires
to reach all classes."
He believes that if Jews are
given the right kind of Christian
literature to read something cen
be done with them "As a peo-
ple," says he, "they delight in lit-
erature as they do in other fine
arts. They are always eager to
learn new things and to be abreast
of the times.
I make quick to acknowledge
Miss Douglass' care for me.
My Dear Miss Douglass: I thank
you for your concern in my behalf
and yet I feel something should
first be done for the other Jew,
I have been a great deal trou-
bled to observe in what small
scorn he is held in the world, if
one may judge by the violence
that is being done everywhere to

As one Jew to another, I at
times, commune with him.
"Jesus," I say, "with you as :t
is with all Jews. It is always
frustration for us."
But he is a Jew with an ever-
lasting dream in his eyes. I guess
that is why He and the other Jews
have kept on living: on account <"
the dream in their eyes. By the
vision they see that there may be
something to keep on living for.
So when I speak to Him he does
not answer me at once but His
eyes are far off. I see the reflec-
tion of a lovely world in them.
Then I say to Him: "Is this the
image of heaven in Your eyes?"
And He answers: "No! It is the
old dream of the Jews you see in
My eyes. It is the world made
more just and lovely."
But soon I see the vision washed
away by His tears. His eyes one
moment carry joyous visions and
the next are sad with tears of
compassion. Jews are like that.
I count his tears:
One is the tear of a starving
And the tear of a woman not yet
done weeping for her son killed
long ago in the wars.
The tear of the old man who
has come to his last years with-
out a place to lay his head.
And the tear of a man under the
The tear of a woman seeing her
child being made ready for the
And the tear of a youth in the
agony of dying on a battlefield,
for a tyrant's glory.
These are the tears in Jesus'
eyes. He makes to depart and I
ask Him, "Where are you going?"
And he shrugs his shoulders: "I
am a wanderer. Whither may a
scorned Jew go?"
I am very sad for Jesus, my
Brother, the wandering Jew. Your
concern for my soul, Miss Doug-

lass, while appreciated is mis-
placed, considering the unhappy
situation of my brother Jesus.
I have endured being a Jew
more than 50 years and I ought
to be able to bear the burden, with-
out salvation, during the years
that are left of me. I will die
and the grave will cover up my
But for Jesus there is no rest
from scorn. Resurrected from the
grave, he has been made to wan-
der forever, trampled on battle-
fields, suffering the pain of the
world, carrying unfulfilled dreams,

Happier seems the lot of all
other Jews who stay buried and
are permitted to rest from their
fevered dreams; who are cruci-
fied once and never come back to
be crucified again and again.
This is not to say that Jesus
ever has given lamentations in my
ear against being resurrected,
though I have said to Him: "Ah,
Jesus, how sad for a Jew to be
He has answered: "It is good!
It is good! It is better for me
than for other Jews who dream
and die. You see, by being al-
lowed to live forever I may yet
come to see a fulfillment."
So, Miss Douglass, I plead for
the salvation of Jesus from this
doom; for 2000 years are a long
time for a Prophet to suffer, to
see his best dreams made rubbish
by greed and hate, to be reviled

in the councils to the peoples.
Who am I to be saved first?
I deserve not your pity. I am but
a miserable sinner who, if I came
into your church, would make im-
pudent .-[leeches: "O my friends,
we have saved ourselves, but what
of my poor brother, Jesus ? Wan-
derer in the world! The most pa-
thetic figure in mankind! Let us,
therefore, do something for Jesus,
my friends; to reward His suffer-
ing with the sight of righteousness
in the world, to compensate Him
for having been resurrected, to
him rest after all the ages of
futile wandering, to give Him one
victory after all His defeats."
Thus I would speak in your
church and some of your people
might say "That's the Jew in him,
trying to make trouble, he is."
With much thanks for your so-
licitude, I am willing to wait for
salvation from the misery of my
sins until Jesus is saved from His
