Headed by the Hon. Alfred M.
Cohen, international president of
B'nai B'rith, officers of the supreme
lodg6 and members of the execu-
tive board arrived here Tuesday
evening to attend the annual meet-
ing of the board for 1987. Arriv-
ing delegates were greeted by com-
mittees of Sholem lodge and taken
to the Floridian Hotel, where head-
quarters of the meeting had been
established. Sessions of the board
began Wednesday morning and
lasted throughout the day. Reports
of important committees and va-
rious district lodges were heard.
"In the year that has elapsed,"
declared President Cohen in his an-
nual report, "world conditions have
not improved and there has, there-
fore, been no improvement in the
condition of the Jewish people,
whose fate is closely related to
what is happening to the rest of
mankind. If misfortune be the lot
of our fellow men, the misfortune
of the Jew is accentuated. Eco-
nomic conditions are not solely re-
sponsible for the treatment meted
out to the Jew, but it is a very im-
portant factor. The bright spot
in all the world for the Jew and
all who believe in the brotherhood
of man is our own United States of
Sigmund Livingston, chairman of
the B'nai B'rith Anti-Defamation
Commission, made an eloquent plea
for good will among the religious
Richard E. Gutstadt, director of
B'nai B'rith's Anti-Defamation
League, reported the league had
handled 968 cases during 1936 as
compared with 287 cases in 1935.
During 1986 B'nai B'rith under-
took the establishment of a na-
tion-wide network of institutes for
I dult Jewish study. The B'nai
B'rith institute in Denver is in its
lourth season, but during the past
year new ones were founded in
Louisville, Cleveland, Seattle, Salt
I-ake City, Fort Wayne, Kansas
City, Philadelphia, while others are
being formed and contemplated in
New Orleans, Houston, Hollywood
and Portland, Ore.
Dr. A. L. Sachar, national direc-
tor of the eleven B'nai B'rith foun-
dations, reported that morale in
the foundations is higher today
ti;an at any time since 1929. 1986
was the Bar Mitzva or thirteenth
J Bl of the Hillel Foundations.
Reports made to the executive
committee showed that the mem-
bership of the order has increased.
There are now 441 B'nai B'rith
lodges in the United States and
( anada. as against 414 last year.
For the first time B'nai B'rith
has entered Uruguay and Chile,
with the establishment of lodges
In .Montevideo and Santiago; the
order now functions In 88 coun-
tries. In addition, B'nai B'rith's
tenth lodge was founded in Pales-
tine with the establishment of a
second lodge in Tel Aviv, named
after the late poet laureate, Chaim
| N'achman Bialik, who had been a
member of B'nai B'rith.
Wednesday night the large audi-
torium of Temple Israel was filled
\ to capacity to witness the initiation
of two hundred and twenty-four
new members into the Alfred M.
Cohen class of Sholem lodge of
B'nai B'rith. Mr. Nathan Adel-
man, president of the Miami lodge,
presented Rabbi Colman Zwitman
of Temple Israel, who delivered an
invocation, following which the de-

District No. 5, then was presented

the order and expressed the thanks
of the district to Hyman S. Jacobs
of Atlanta, Ga., first vice-presi-
dent of the district, and to the lo-
cal lodge for its record of achieve-
ment. The first speaker of the
evening, Mr. Sam Beber, head of
the supreme advisory council of the
A. Z. A. (junior B'nai B'rith), gave
a stirring talk of the A. Z. A.
work and its molding of the youth
1 of America in truly Jewish and
American character. Me was fol-
lowed by Sam G. Kusworm, na-
| tional head of the order's Ameri-
canization work and treasurer of
th( supreme lodge, who urged his
hearers to return to true Judaism
and the heritage of their faith as
the only means of combating anti-
Semitism. Richard K. Gutstadt ( f
Chicago, director of anti-defama-
tion work in this country, aroused
iii< audience to a high pitch of en-
thusiasm with a remarkably stir-
ling address, urging all to become
individually interested in the con-
duct of their fellow Jews. He told
of the work of the Anti-Defama-
tion League throughout the world.
The audience rose to its feet :n
tribute when the Hon. Alfred M.
Cohen, head of the order and one
of world Jewry's leaders, was pre-
sented for the concluding address
of the evening. Mr. Cohen talked
tD the- class of initiates and told
of B'nai B'rith. its ideals and pur-
poses. He urged all to emulate the
examples of traditional Jewry and
the work of B'nai B'rith. Follow-
ing the formal program, the ladies'
committee was host to all at a re-
ception and dance in Kaplan Hall.
Sandwiches, drinks and other
goodies were Berved. Mrs. R. R.
Adler and Mrs. S. N. Halpert were
Chairmen of the ladies' committee.

New York (WNS)The respon-
sibility of individual American
Jewish communities to the Anglo-
Jewish weekly publications which
serve them was stressed by Ber-
nard Postal, managing editor of
the Seven Arts Feature Syndicate,
in a paper on "The Anglo-Jewish
Weekly Press," read at the round
table on "The Role of the Press
in Modern Jewish Life," which was
one of twelve such round tables
held in connection with an all-day
conference arranged by the Jew-
ish Theological Seminary of Amer.
ica as part of its semi-centennial
celebration. Describing the Anglo-
Jewish weekly press as "a group
of free, untrammeled and independ-
ent weeklies seeking to promote
the well-being of American Jewry
by serving as reporter, reflector
and interpreter of the contempo-
rary Jewish scene," Mr. Postal said
that "collectively they constitute
the most reliable index of Amer-
ican Jewish opinion. What the
Anglo-Jewish press needs today is
the greater co-operation of the
Jewish public, a co-operation which
will come about when our Jewish
leaders come to appreciate more
fully that this press fills a vital
need in American Jewish life, and
that neglect or lack of encourage-
ment of this powerful organ of
public opinion and instrumentality
for constructive leadership may
Imperil the very life of American
Pointing out that Jewish com-
munities have "come to rely on
their Anglo-Jewish weeklies for
leadership in every sphere of com
tnunal life." Mr. Postal said that
from "an organizational and cul-
tural viewpoint every Jewish com.
niunity in the land would be the
poorer without its Anglo-Jewish
press, Unfortunately most commu-
nities ignore this responsibility,
although they have no hesitancy
about using or even exploiting

New Orleans (WNS)American
Reform Judaism took a good sized
step back toward the old forms of
traditional Judaism when the final
joint session of the 35th biennial
council of the Union of American
Hebrew Congregations and its af-
filiated National Federations of
Temple Sisterhoods and Brother-
hoods adopted a resolution recom-
I mending to Reform congregations
I the more extensive use of ancient!
symbols, ceremonies and customs ,
of Judaism. In a formal resolution i
, the lay leaders of Reform Judaism ,
urged Reform congregations to use
only Jewish music in the Sabbath
services; to employ a cantor, is
| Orthodox synagogues do; to chant
the Kiddush, and to use only Jewish
singers in synagogue choirs where
practical; the singing of tradition-
al Jewish hymns; and the institu-
tion of "such traditional observ-
ances as are wise, practicable and
expedient in each congregation."
Other resolutions called upon the
Hebrew Union College to re-estab-
| lish a chair in music, provided for
| co-operation between the govern-
ing boards of the union and its af-
filiated bodies to obtain the finan-
cial backing needed to re-establish
former projects and initiate new
ones, proposed the establishment of
a publication dedicated to liberal
Judaism, recommended the produc-
tion of special films for the union's
educational program and wider dis-
tribution of literature produced by
its tract commission, approved con-
sideration of a plan for old age
pensions for rabbis, and suggested
joint annual meetings of local
chapters of affiliated bodies in each

important action when it urged its

A' special dispatch from Wash-
ington to the New York Times
gives a detailed account of immi-
gration into the United States dur-
ing the year 1936. According to
the present laws, 153.774 aliens
could have entered the country un-
der the quota system. Only 20,184
actually entered. In other words,
only 13 per cent of the available
entries under the quota system
were used. Certain smaller na-
tionalities with very small quotas,
such as Greek and Turkish, Al-
banian and Spanish, exhausted
their respective quotas. The more
numerous peoples did not.
The most conspicuous example
is that of Germany. The quota fol
Germany during 1986 was 25,597
Only 8,978 German citizens availed
themselves of the opportunity of
legally entering the United State*
for purposes of permanent resi-
dence. Hence 18.619 visas were
left unused. This fact is not at
all surprising. The temper of the
present regime in Germany is such
that it would rather have its na-
tionals starve at home than flour-
ish abroad. Nor is it difficult to
imagine the attitude of German
officialdom today toward anyone
who proposes to flee from the rig-
ors of his country and seek either
bread or freedom in America.
But this point of view can hard-
ly apply to Jews. It is not true,
of course, that the Nazis want to
get rid of all Jews in Germany.
Whipping-boy and scapegoat would
be gone. The Nazi Aryan myth
needs the presence of a minimum
number of Jews, bedevilled and de-
graded if possible, for the purposes
of its special kind of rabble-rous-
ing. On the other hand, since the
government of Germany today
loudly professes its desire to get
rid of Jews and to make the third
reich Judenrein, it may be taken
for granted that a German Jew
desirous to avail himself of the im-
migration quota of the United
States, would not have quite the
difficulties of an Aryan fleeing
from an Aryan paradise. Then
how are we to explain the 18,619
How. I repeat, are we to explain
the 18,61*.) unused German visas?
We need have no doubt at all, I
am convinced, of the at least tol-
erant and kindly attitude toward
Jewish immigrants from Germany
of all really representative sections
Of American public opinion. We
know, a- all men do, the great-
hearted temper and attitude of the
administration of Mr. Roosevelt.
Nor am I raising a question of
charity, of letting down ordinary
barriers, of shutting an eyi

S i that it may be available
to guests by nijrht as well as day,
it is flanked on all sides by pow-
erful submarine lights that illu-
minate its rippling waters. Set
against the Hay of Biscayne on one
side, and otherwise surrounded by
t!"p:.-al splendor, it is a magnifi-
cent setting for the celebrated
moon that shines over Miami.
Adjuncts of the pool are a sand
beach, a wading pool for the
youngsters and a cabana colony for
the bathers. Each cabana has its
own color scheme, a variation n
the pastel picture that the whole
colony presents. Lighted up for
the evening, the pool and its en-
virons are a veritable fairyland.
Couples sauntering along the prom-
enade are reflected in the shim-
mering turquoise blue waters and
the reflection of the moon on the
water finds earthly lodging on the
rooftops of the cabanas.
