Following registration Sunday morning the first session was held with the invocation by Rabbi Adolph Burger of Tampa and addresses of welcome by Vice Mayor Metcalf, and Police Chief Milburn, and the President of the West Palm Beach Lodge, Mr. Jack Kapner. Replies to the addresses were made by Judge M. Henry Cohen, assistant City Attorney of Tampa who spoke on behalf of the Federatiob. "Others who spoke were Sam Goldstein and Joe Lesser past presidents of the West Palm Beach Lodge and active communal workers. Following the appointment of committees the first session adjourned to the banquet hall of the Hotel where a luncheon was given for the delegates and guests. At this luncheon following the invocation by Rabbi Morris A. Skop of Orlando, Chas. S. Wax, past president of the Palm Beach Lodge was presented as toastma6ter.

The highlight of the luncheon was the splendid address by Elry Stone, president of the Miami Lodge and secretary of the Federation. The benediction was pronounced by Rabbi Max Shapiro of Miami, following a song by 'antor Louis Hayman of Beth David Synagogue of Miami. Rabi is Burger and Skop led in chanting of grace and Rabbi A.

The afternoon was devoted to a motorcade for the ladies tendered by the Ladies Auxiliary of B'nai B'rith of West Palm Beach which took the guests to places of interest through the Palm Beaches and an inspection of the Joseph E. Widener home there. A business sess ; on was held at the hotel which was devoted to a study of the problem of Student's Union work at the University of Florida. Quite an interesting discussion was had and a resolution was adonted to raise the sum of twentv-five hundred dollars throughout the state for the purpose of providing a full time Rabbi in Gainesville whose duty it would be to aid the students and at the same time help the Gainesville community. The raising of the funds and supervision of the work for the year was placed in the hands of a Student Union Committee of which Harry Simonhoff, well known Miami communal worker and prominent attorney and Zionist will be chairman. Sunday night delegates and guests were tendered a banquet at the George Washington • Hotel with Jack Kapner presiding. Rabbi Jacob H. Kaplan of Miami delivered the invocation. The main addresses of the evening were delivered by Congressman-elect Pat Cannon of the Fourth Florida Congressional District who stressed the American way of Government as against totalitarian methods. Mr. Cannon pledged his aid as a member of Congress in combatting every means possible the infiltration of un-American methods into this country, and to aid refugees and oppressed peoples of every land. Mr. Harry Adelberg, president of the B'nai B'rith District No. 5 in a very impressive address stressed the principles of B'nai B'rith and described its work for the Jewish causes since inception ninety-five years ago. He urged a more intensified application to B'nai B'rith principles and expressed the hope that the Florida Lodges would continue their remarkable progress in the future. Rabbi Morris A. Skop gave the benediction. A floor show was presented by Chaster Alexander if Miami who brought part of the Royal Palm Club show to the convention. Dancing followed.

The Nominations Committee, SWASTIKA BNCE USED BY JEWS Jerusalem, (WNS Palcor Agency)—According to a find just made on the ancient site of Apamea, an important ruined Seleucid city near Hatna, Jews who lived in Syria under the Seleucidic Dynasty—at least 1800 years ago— used the swastika, present emblem of Nazi rule. The city flourished during the early centuries of the Christian era. Belgium archaeologists investigated a synagogue which was found to have an altar standing on a richly-decorated mosaic flooc, near the Kalat Mudik. The hooked crosses appeared in considerable numbers in one corner of the marble squares forming the floor design. The discovery is one more instance of the extensive use of the swastika, also known as the flyfot or gammadion (from the Greek letter Gamma,) as one of the few decorative religious emblems found in pre-nistoric remains in European Asia and in the Latin Americas. POPE DENOUNCES ANTI-JEWISH ACTS Pope Pius branded the recent Fascist pronouncement which has resulted in severe me a s u r e s against Jews, as "a big and grave error' in a speech today. The Pope renewed the church's dispute with Fascism over its racial doctrine in an address to 400 teachers of the Catholic action movement of laymen. headed by Isaac Levin recommended the election of the following officers, which was unanimously approved. Dr. Frank Coret of Miami, chairman; Sam A. Goldstein of West Palm Beach, first vice-president; Morris S. Uman of Tampa, second vice-president; Louis Ossinsky of Daytona Beach, third vice-president; M. A Friedman of St. Petersburg, fourth vicepresident; Nathan Kass of Jacksonville, fifth vice-president; M. M. Segal of Orlando treasurer and Elry Stone of Miami, secretary. J. Louis Shochet of Miami was named chairman of the State anti-Defamation Committee. Following the installation of officers by Hyman S. Jacobs, treasurer of the Fifth District [ %  Grand Lodge the Convention was adjourned. TUNE IN SUNDAY MORNING AT 9:0* The Jewish Floridlan will again present another in its •eriM of wwldy broadeaita this coaiing. Sunday morning OTer Station WEAT (1600 k. e.) at 9:00 o'clock. It's full of interesting newi and comments and music. WISE URGES BOYCOTT ITALY New York, (WNS)—Asserting that the newest Italian Cabinet decree ordering the expulsion of foreign Jews is "Nazism at its wont," and urging that the Jews answer it by not setting ..foot in Italy again until this law be revoked and the accursed rule of II Duce be ended," Dr. Stephen S. Wise, in a statement here, referred to the decree as "the great surrender of Italy to Nazism". "We will loathe Italy's shame until Italy reestablishes itself within the circle of civilized peoples," Dr. Wise' statement said in part. "We will have no relation to it. We will avoid it as we would any other physical and moral pestilence." GERMAN RABBIS REFUSE CENSORS Berlin, (WNS)—Rabbinical sermons will soon become a thing of the past in German synagogues as a result of the decision of the German rabbinate to dispense with sermons rather than submit them in advance to the censorship of the secret police. A new police order provides for the submission of sermons before they are given. Rome, (WNS)—Censorship .of Rosh Hashanah ari3 Yom Kippur sermons is demanded by Regime Fascista, leading anti-Sem-i t i c daily. The paper declares that without such surveillance Jews may utilize the High Holy Days for plotting against the Fascist regime. PEACE MOVES ARE REFUSED London, (WNS)—The possibil! ty of a meeting between Field Marshall Goering and George Rublee, permanent director of the Intergovernmental Refugee Committee was explored at a meeting of committee members. Although such a meeting is not regarded as likely for many weeks in view of the critical European situation and the Nazi Party congress at Nuremberg, the committee members discussed the best means of arranging for it. The meeting also discussed a report drafted by Hugh Wilson, American ambassador to Germany, concerning the prospects for prevailing upon Germany to permit the refugees to take some of their capital with them. The committee is reported to have agreed that it was inadvisable to approach Germany concerning the dumping of refugees into neighboring countries, especially Switzerland and Belgium, holding that this is a matter concerning the states involved. WORLD JEWISH LEADERS CONVENE Antwerp, .WNS Palcor Agency) —Outstanding Zionist leaders from Palestine,* Europe, Africa and America converged on this city to attend the extraordinary conference on Palestine which opened at Zionist House here on Saturday September 3rd, under the auspices 0t the Keren Hayesod, which is the fiscal instrument of the Jewish Agency for Palestine. Special importance is attached to this world parley because it will not merely discuss the financial program for the upbuilding of the Jewish homeland in Palestine, but will provide outstanding Zionist personalities the first opportunity since the last World Zionist Congress in Zurich in August 1937, to review Palestine's political a^d economic situation. Among the delegates are David Ben Gurion, Eleazar Kaplan, Joseph Baratz, Palestine Labor L-ader, Leib Jaffe and Dr. Arthur Hantke, directors of the Keren Hayesod in Palestine Leo Herrman. Secretary of the Keren Hayesed, Hugo Bergmann, rector ot the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Dr. Werner Senator former assistant head of the Immigration Department of the Jewish Agency Executive, Rabbi Jehuda L. Fish man, head of the Agency's department to aid tradesmen and artisans; Moses Smilansky, Presided of the Jewish Farmers' Association in Palestine, Nahum Goldman, Geneva representative of the Jewish Agency; Prof. Brodetsky, Rev.

Nurock, of Latvia, Chief Rabbi Friediger of Copenhagen, Rabbi Nahon of Milan and Dr. Michael R. Traub of Berlin. • Scores of countries, Including Germany, are represented at the conference, the American delegation including Dr. Goldman Mr. Lipsky and Jacob Fishman, the well-known Jewish editor. INDIA WILL ACT AGAINST NAZIS Bombay, (WNS) — Dr. R. J. Weingarten, German-Jewish refugee, has been appointed chief medical officer of the Bikaner state hospital by the Maharajah of Bikaner. The appointment was made despite the fact that Dr. Weingarten is not a registered practitioner in India where German medical degrees are not recognised. Startling evidence of Nasi activities in India is to be the subject of a special meeting of the central legislature of India, it was revealed here. The Indian press has recently been publishing detailed reports of Nasi propaganda which has created great concern. 1

Services will be conducted by Rabbi Colman A. Zwitman. HIGH HOLY DAY SERVICES In attempting to partially fulfill the mission of Israel by making the synagogue truly "a house of prayer for all the people," Temple Israel announces with justified pride that no charges of any sort will be made to members of the Temple for admission to the services on the High Holy Days. The Rabbis, and the officers, also invite all German and Austrian refugees in the community to be the guests of the Temple during the High Holy Days, and during the rest of the year. All Jewish students of the University of Miami are also cordially invited to attend services. It is an accepted policy of Temple Israel that every Jew who wishes to worship with us, is welcome, regardless of financial obligation. If you know, therefore, of any person or family unable \o pay for tickets, kindly notify the Temple office and tickets will be sent without embarrassment to recipients involved. Members may receive tickets for the High Holy Days by calling at the Temple office. A special office in the Shoreland Arcade will be open the week prior to the High Holy Days, for the convenience of our members. IN MEMORIAM The Rabbis, officers and members of Temple Israel record with sorrow the passing of two outstanding members of the Temple and the Jewish community. To those who remain after them our deepest sympathy is extended. Both men had attained great success in their business endeavors. Both men were torn away from their loved ones at a premature time. Both men create an unfilled void in the general Jewish community in whose endeavors they participated. They shall however, be especially missed by Temple Israel, the institution to which they gave their allegiance, and their memory will be perpetuated in the annals of our Congregation. Profoundly do we mourn the loss of SOL H. ADLER N. A. ROSEN audience, "is the unity and uniformity of the Universe. Things may seem to us different, as belonging to different forms of reality.

Mr. Daniel Lawrence, who has travelled extensively in Italy, will speak on "Italy the land of the arts, liberty and joy, what has become of thee?"

FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 9,1938 THE JEWISH FLOREDIAjr PAGE FIVE Does Anti-Semitism Exist In America? BY RUSSELL W. DAVENPORT Managing Editor of Fortune Magazine To most American Jews the question asked in the title of this article would sound rather cockeyed in view of what we know to be the present status of anti-Semitism in this country. But Mr. Davenport answers the question in the negative by a different definition of the term anti-Semitism. You may not agree with him, but you'll be stirred by his analysis of this vital question. —THE EDITOR. The question of the Jews in America is one to which I and my associates on Fortune have devoted considerable thought. It is a question, we believe, which goes directly to the root of many of the world's most serious economic and political troubles; which, indeed, cannot be discussed without reference to those troubles and without taking sides concerning the solution of them. In other words, it i our feeling that what has been called anti-Semitism — a phrase which I shall presently define—is not an isolated problem, but is rather symptomatic of even profounder problems which must be solved if our civilization is any longer to survive. By this I do not mean that the survival of civilization hinges upon the solution to anti-Semitism. That would be a gross exaggeration. I mean rather, that anti-Semitism arises from, and is caused by, the very forces which are unsettling the politics, and now especially the economics of the modern world. Anti-Semitism is an inevitable byproduct of the action of those forces; just as prohibitive tariffs are an inevitable by-product, and trad? quotas, and extended armies, and threats of war. To make my meaning clear it will be necessary to begin where Fortune's article-on Jews in America began; that is, with a definit ; on of anti-Semitism. Here it is necessary to proceed very carefully. In one sense anti-Semitism has always existed, because latent prejudice against the Jews, as Rabbi Joel Blau has said, "dates back to the beginnings of the Jewish people." Here in America this prejudice has made it difficult or impossible for Jews to enter certain clubs and certain social c'rcles. Prejudice like that is deplorable; but in Ameria, at any rate, it has been almost entirely *o ial (in the narrow sense of the word society) and I am sure that that is not what is in your mind when you speak of anti-Semtism today. I am sure that you have in mind something at once more specific and more general. What we mean when we talk about anti-Semitism today is—to quote Fortune—" a deliberately incited, affirmative, racial phobia." It is the emotion or state of mind of being against the Jews, and of actively expressing one's antagonism in personal speech and propaganda, or by outright persecution. Anti-Semitism in this sense U the crystallized thought or action of a majority group against a minority group. It is therefore capable of gathering unto itself a mass of opinion and dogma which wai not originally a part of it. Beginning with that small,, halfhidden prejudice which the Christian world has always had against the Jews, it assumes economic and patriotic Aspects which could not have been deduced from the original premises by any process of logic or reason. In Germany today anti-Semitism is performing political and patriotic functions which, if they were not so tragic, could be described as ridiculous. Some of us feel that ant'-Semitism, in the sense just defined, exists in the United States, either actually or potentially. To those who believe that it actually exists, I can only say that I do not agree, and that their belief seems to me alarmist and unwarranted by the facts. Indeed, I would say to these people: "If you believe antiSemitism actually exists in the United States today, you have missed the definition of, you' have utterly under-rated anti-Semitism. You have mistaken something superficial (the ape-old prejudice against the Jews) for something profound. But there are others who, on much sounder grounds, believe that anti-Semitism potentially exists in the United States. And I cannot help but agree with them. I think we have all observed evidences, or at least had suggestions of it. A member of our staff the other day, wishing to get out of town for a swim, called up an inn on the Connecticut shore to make a reservation for dinner. He was ut.'known at the inn—which calls itself a club, though it caters more or less to the general public—and was asked whether or not he was what the manager called a Hebrew. Admitting that he was not. he was then asked whether his companion would be a Hebrew; at which point, I am glad to report, he flung down the telephone. Another member of our staff found a small poster a few inches square on a telegraph pole in Connecticut reading, "Help Save America. Don't buy from Jews!" And 1 think we have all heard similar disquieting stories from other parts of the country. I must urge you, however, not to take these reports too seriously. Indeed, if you were to ask me whether or not anti-Semitism exists potentially in the U. S., my answer would not be based upon such stories as these at all. They do not prove anything whatever. The answer to whether anti-Semitism exists potentially or not lies in the state of mind of the people of the United States concerning, not the Jews, but the people of the United States themselves. In brief, I should like to give you this paradox: that the Jewish problem, if there is a Jewish problem, is not a Jewish problem at all. I can make my meaning a little clearer to you by pointing out the historical fact that, by the large, democracy has a better record with regard to the Jewish people than any other governmental form. The reason for this is ob vious. In a democratic politicaleconomy each individual has the same fundamental rights as every other individual, regardless of race, color or creed. So long as the people as a whole cling to tnis concept, they will not-ftbey dare not—permit the. growth ^ of pressure-groups that are too powerful to be controlled. But if ever for any reason the concept of democracy ceases to grip them, then it is altogether inevitable that pressure groups should arise. They arise for economic reasons, for geographic reasons, or for purely emotional reasons. And their effect is two-fold. On the one hand they unify groups of people, who presumably, are afraid of something, though they may not know what; and on the other hand, until one big pressure-group wins out in the end (as, for instance, in the case of prohibition) they break up the political economy into warring elements which have their own welfare more at heart than the welfare of the system as a whole. Now we have had pressuregroups in the United States in the past, but up to now, at any rate, they have not been entirely out of control. There was, for example, the Klu Klux Klan. There was prohibition, which got out of control for a while. The American Legion has—happily — confided most of its pressure to bonuses and pensions. Nevertheless, I think it is clear that pressuregroups are more numerous and more insistent now than they used to be. Fortune recently published an article by Dr. Raymond Leslie Buell called Death by Tariff, in which the existence of economic pressure groups in the United States was shown. These groups are erecting internal tariffs, one against the other, and are thus threatening the fundamental premise of the democratic political economy. Certain capitalist organizations seem to me to possess the character of pressure groups; and certain labor organizations too. Now anti-Semitism is a pressure group phenomenon. It is nothing else. Groups of persons here and there become afraid. They do not know what they are afraid of, but some of them might have had some unpleasant experiences with Jews (or it might have been Catholics, or Japanese or Eskimos.) They erect an emotional thesis and they present this to their persons and groups who are afraid. All these persons, mind you. must have abandoned hope for the democratic political economy, must have relinquished that ideal. If they have not yet relinquished it they will resist the pressure. If they have, then they will fall for it, and the anti-Semitic pressure group will grow until it becomes a majority pressure-group against a helpless minority. That would be anti-Semitism. Consequently, when asked whether anti-Semitism potentially exists, I look to the state of affairs in the political economy; and in the light of Dr. Buell's article (which never once mentioned Jews) and of some of my own observations, my feeling is that the American people today are in danger of loosening their grip upon the political and economic principles which they inherited from the past. I say in danger, because I don't think they really have, and I don't think they really will. I think they just have a case of ind'gestion, having had too many theories thrust at them—and -not enough work. But I do think that for the time being they are very susceptible to pressure-g r o u p emotionalism—or shall we call it psychosis. Assuming, then, that there is danger in the rise of pressure groups, what is an intelligent and ambitious Jew to do? Is he to lie down and take it? He has too much self-respect for that. Is he, on the other hand, to organize anqther pressure-group to combat the pressure-group? It seems mLumL By HARRY SCHWARTZ Y. M. H. A. PLAYS UTICA CLUB BEER IN FINAL GAME Throngh the splendid efforts of Manager Aaron Weinkle, Dr. Barney Weinkle and Nat Blumberg of the Y. M. H. A., and Mr. Sidney Rauzin and Manager Ed Ja-kson of the Utica Club Beer aggregation, a special benefit game between the Y. M. H.

CIVIC LEAGUE HEBREWS DEFEAT YMHA YIDLACH Carl Gardner, manager of the Civic League diamondball team and his cohorts have reason to feel proud after beating the Golden Ball Champs in a close game. In the Miami Beach League the "Y" wound up in a tie with the Shayne Drugs and Civic League, each team winning 11 games and losing 4. This brought a sound robin which was won by the Civic proud of the'r record for the season with a grand total of 30 victories against 9 defeats.

With all the committees appointed at this early period) indications point to Jthje most successful annual ever held. If you are desirous in aiding any of the above committee please get in touch with them at your earliest convenience. Watch this column for further data. COLLEGE NIGHT clear that such a course would be suicidal. A pressure-group to fight anti-Semitism not only excites more trouble, but it strikes a blow at the one and only political system that has decently protected the Jew in this world; at the democratic system, under which pressure-groups of the kind we are talking about cannot poss'bly arise. I realize that the temptation to combat anti-Semitism with pressure groups is almost over-powering. But I cannot urge too strongly the futility to say nothing of the danger of it. The reason ; t ie futile is because you are not here" dealing with facts, but with emotions. In my opinion, the greatest contribution made by Fortune's article on Jews in America was its clear demonstration of the myth that the Jews control America. Running down the entire gamut of American industry and government, Fortune disposed of the myth that the Jews run America; though it found that they dominate the amusement industries; and it found also that the Jews contribute their full share of the talent and ability of the country. But the point I wish to make is that, confronted with an emotional pressure-group, indisputable fa~ts like these are of no'avail. The counter-pressure group which cites them—equally emotionally perhaps—can only stir up animosity (Continued on Page Six) Last Saturday night the "Y" played host to the lads and lassies who are about to enter the schools of higher learning. Jerry Bass, who acted as master of ceremonies with the aid and assistance of the Executive Director, arranged this affair. AMATEUR NIGHT What promises to be a fine evening will take place Sunday night September 11th at the "Y," when our amateur show will be presented. The inter-club spelling bee will be held in conjunction with the amateur show. CULTURAL MEETING Last Tuesday evening another in a series of cultural meetings was held at the "Y." Dr. Abraham Wolf son con'luded his talk on "Spinoza—A Life.of Reason." LABOR DAY PICNIC I a*t Monday our annual basket narty was held. It was in reality in old-fashioned family reunion. Through the kindness of the Dunn Bus Company, a large, comfortable bus • -—*ed many of our members an -nds to and from the picnic grounds. Let these parties take place more often. It goes a long way toward cementing an everlasting friendship. ATTENTION! Parents who have children under sixteen years of age, our Executive Director has devised a plan to take care of the "club" needs of boys and girls under 16 years of age. With the assistance of Mrs. Gadon, who has had considerable experience with similar groups in New-York Mr. Maurice Grossman is now preparing plans which will be announced at an early date.

We extend our wishes that Alvin prow up "Li-Chupah Uli-Maasim Tovim." We trust that many friends of the family will be present. BETH DAVIDS OPENING AFFAIR Vital Important Urgent Members and wives of Beth David Congregation are invited to attend the first congregational dinner and meeting to be held this coming Sunday at 7.00 p. m. Due to the tremendous increase in our membership, we find it necessary to emphasize that reservations are essential! We cannot be responsible for lack of seating facilities if you have not phoned in your reservations. This is the congrecation's treat at no expense to you. We desire to meet often and know each other better. This occasion will honor the old workers and pioneers who labored for our institution and aided greatly in the promotion of its welfare. Mr. Isidor Cohen, well-known to all of us tot his splendid achievements for Beth David in particular and Miami Jewry in general, will le the toastmaster. The recent accomplishments of the new admin istration under the capable leadership of Mr. M. J. Kopelowitz will be presented in the form of brief congregational business and meeting. It is noteworthy and most outstanding to be able to state that twenty-five new members have been secured in the past three weeks. The new members will be introduced at the dinner by the president. Remember! Sunday evening, sharply at 7:00 p. m., our first congregational dinner and meeting honoring the old timers and pioneers of our institution! XXX TALMUD TORAH Secular studies begin this Monday. We urge the parents to register their children at Hebrew School as their children are being registered at public schools. Permit your children to underscand %  telligently the purpose of the iligh Holidays and the liturgy for these holidays. It is our intention for the next few weeks to prepare them for the regular course to be presented at the inception of the coming semester immediately after the holidays. Bring them at HIGH HOLIDAY PLANS Reservations are coming in very fast; considering the early dai it is quite surprising. Plesse make your plans for the holidays immediately if you desire to be satisfied. Mr. Mendel Scheinberg and his committee are ready to meet your requests. XXX OUR DEEP GRATITUDE It is with great appreciation that we express our deep gratitude to an old time worker of our institution who constantly has OUT welfare close to his heart. When Mr. M. Rippa felt that our i ?ligious institution lacked the proper drinking facilities for our childri a and adults, he immediately purchased a beautiful electric water device to our great satisfaction. When Mr. Rippa felt that a beautiful insignia in the form of a large "Mogen Dovid" was essential in order to beautify our synagogue, he immediately erected it at the entrance of our house of worship. When Mr. Rippa realized that the High Holidays are fast approaching and no consideration was given to the ventilation problem in case of tremendous heat, he purchased at a vast expense, two large, beautiful electric fans which are already installed in our synagogue. The Rabbi president and Board of Directors pray unto the Almighty that He recompense such a loyal member with many more years to live and continue to perform such great "Mitzvos" that do redound to his credit. May he and his wife enjoy sound health and continue to gain respect which they enjoy in our midst. Committee which prepared the Jewish Fnblica tion Society's Bible. (Schulman, Phillipson. Margolis, Schechter, Kohler, Ja-.obs and Adler.) Does Anti-Semitism Exist in America? and give direction to the unreasoning fear upon which anti-Semitism is always founded. What, then, is the Jew to do. The answer, it seems to me is perfectly clear. Since the democratic political economy has received him more open-mindedly and has offered him more opportunity than any other; and since this form of political economy contains within itself, when it is functioning well, the only known safeguard against groups; since these things are so, it would seem to me that the Jew should concern himself always and Refugree Problem Is Discussed JerusaleM. (WNS Palcor Agency.—It was learned from Arab sources that an appeal addressed to Arab terrorists by leading Moslem religious leaders urging them to abstain from murder and violence during the three-month penitential period known as SheSur Al Haram, was angrily rejected by leaders of the disorders. In some instances the Arab terrorists showed their displeasure with the plea of the Moslem clergy by sending threatening letters to Moslem priests. The appeal to the terrorist ringleaders is said to have been signed by prominent Arab religious figures, including the-Kadi of Jerusalem and the Mufti of Acre. It urged that Shchur Al Haram, which, according t > Islamic tradition is devoted to intensive prayer, should not be 'Violated by continued bloodshed.

At the Synagogue Every Evening and Sunday Morning every day with the defense, the preservation, and the further development of that political economic system. The Jew's answer to potential anti-Semitism is good citizenship. He should make of himself an exponent, not primarily of his group, not primarily of any other group, but of those ideals already mentioned. He should make himself an exponent of them and he should make himself a student of ways and means for enacting them. We have in the city of New York, as I need scarcely tell you, several political leaders who are Jews but whose conduct, | as measured by democratic standards, has made me, who am not a Jew, proud to be an American. That is the type of life—not necessarily public, not necessarily famed—which I urge the Jews of America to adopt. I urge upon them a citizenship which will make all other Americans proud af their citizenship. And I submit that if the four and a half million Jews in America were to affect other American citizens in this way, an anti-Semitic movement could never actually arise.

Most commendable was the sentiment of these hotel owners ia refusing to permit any prirste indiridnsl to engage ia religious work to the detriment of communal organization and at the expense of an established synagogue.

Well over three hundred delegates. memSers and guests were pre .en:. The high spot of the coavertion was the allocation of $250* for the promotion of student union activities. The careful consideration this phase of our work received from the delegates speaks well for the progre s sive action o.* Florida B'nai B'rith. This part of oar work is tremendously important sad if the convention in assembly had done nothing else it would have accomplished considerable. Much discussion was had concerning our anti-Defamation program and the committee to be appointed I am sure will handle this work very satisfactorily. Every Lodge ha the state cooperated so beautifully, one with the other, and the delegates worked together so harmoniously that the convention could not help but be anything but the success that it was. West Palm Beach Lodge served ss perfect hosts and the arrangement and facilities extended made the convention so delightful. Our own Dr. Frank Coret was elected president of the Federation and our swell president, Elry Stone, secretsry. With such men heading the Federation for the next year we sre bound to go plaees and do things. In other words, I definitely predict that this coming year will see our Federation %  power in this state. The respective Lodges will be inoculated with such enthusiasm and constructive assistance that they will do more good than ever before and Florida will hare the brightest B'nai B'rith year. Next year the Convention will be held in Jacksonville and if we can expect as much from Jacksonville as we received from West Palm Beach then it will be a Convention no one should miss. Brother Ben Le Vine gave a very interesting talk during which he stated "As long as I am alive Miami will have the biggest, greatest and best Lodge in the State." Please God, Ben lives to be one hundred sad twenty years. Whst s B'nai B'rith enthusiast! Dr. Albert Bosenthsl sad Stanley Myers were real cut-ups. They were splendid in their soup sad fish.

The Nominations Committee,
SWASTIKA BNCE
USED BY JEWS
Jerusalem, (WNS Palcor Agen-
cy)According to a find just
made on the ancient site of Apa-
mea, an important ruined Seleucid
city near Hatna, Jews who lived
in Syria under the Seleucidic Dy-
nastyat least 1800 years ago
used the swastika, present emblem
of Nazi rule.
The city flourished during the
early centuries of the Christian
era. Belgium archaeologists in-
vestigated a synagogue which was
found to have an altar standing on
a richly-decorated mosaic flooc,
near the Kalat Mudik.
The hooked crosses appeared in
considerable numbers in one cor-
ner of the marble squares form-
ing the floor design. The discov-
ery is one more instance of the
extensive use of the swastika, also
known as the flyfot or gammadion
(from the Greek letter Gamma,)
as one of the few decorative re-
ligious emblems found in pre-nis-
toric remains in European Asia
and in the Latin Americas.
POPE DENOUNCES
ANTI-JEWISH ACTS
Pope Pius branded the recent
Fascist pronouncement which has
resulted in severe me a s u r e s
against Jews, as "a big and grave
error' in a speech today. The Pope
renewed the church's dispute with
Fascism over its racial doctrine in
an address to 400 teachers of the
Catholic action movement of lay-
men.
headed by Isaac Levin recommend-
ed the election of the following
officers, which was unanimously
approved. Dr. Frank Coret of
Miami, chairman; Sam A. Gold-
stein of West Palm Beach, first
vice-president; Morris S. Uman
of Tampa, second vice-president;
Louis Ossinsky of Daytona Beach,
third vice-president; M. A Fried-
man of St. Petersburg, fourth vice-
president; Nathan Kass of Jack-
sonville, fifth vice-president; M.
M. Segal of Orlando treasurer
and Elry Stone of Miami, secre-
tary. J. Louis Shochet of Miami
was named chairman of the State
anti-Defamation Committee.
Following the installation of
officers by Hyman S. Jacobs,
treasurer of the Fifth District
[Grand Lodge the Convention was
adjourned.

WISE URGES
BOYCOTT ITALY
New York, (WNS)Asserting
that the newest Italian Cabinet
decree ordering the expulsion of
foreign Jews is "Nazism at its
wont," and urging that the Jews
answer it by not setting ..foot in
Italy again until this law be re-
voked and the accursed rule of II
Duce be ended," Dr. Stephen S.
Wise, in a statement here, refer-
red to the decree as "the great
surrender of Italy to Nazism".
"We will loathe Italy's shame
until Italy reestablishes itself
within the circle of civilized peo-
ples," Dr. Wise' statement said in
part. "We will have no relation
to it. We will avoid it as we
would any other physical and mor-
al pestilence."
GERMAN RABBIS
REFUSE CENSORS
Berlin, (WNS)Rabbinical ser-
mons will soon become a thing of
the past in German synagogues as
a result of the decision of the
German rabbinate to dispense with
sermons rather than submit them
in advance to the censorship of
the secret police. A new police
order provides for the submission
of sermons before they are given.
Rome, (WNS)Censorship .of
Rosh Hashanah ari3 Yom Kippur
sermons is demanded by Regime
Fascista, leading anti-Sem-i t i c
daily. The paper declares that
without such surveillance Jews
may utilize the High Holy Days
for plotting against the Fascist
regime.
PEACE MOVES
ARE REFUSED

London, (WNS)The possibil-
!ty of a meeting between Field
Marshall Goering and George Rub-
lee, permanent director of the In-
tergovernmental Refugee Commit-
tee was explored at a meeting of
committee members. Although
such a meeting is not regarded as
likely for many weeks in view of
the critical European situation
and the Nazi Party congress at
Nuremberg, the committee mem-
bers discussed the best means of
arranging for it.
The meeting also discussed a
report drafted by Hugh Wilson,
American ambassador to Germany,
concerning the prospects for pre-
vailing upon Germany to permit
the refugees to take some of their
capital with them. The commit-
tee is reported to have agreed that
it was inadvisable to approach
Germany concerning the dumping
of refugees into neighboring coun-
tries, especially Switzerland and
Belgium, holding that this is a
matter concerning the states in-
volved.

VOLUME 11.NUMBER 35.
B'NAI B'RITH
The recent State Convention at West Palm Beach has
bought about a realisation of the wisdom of our forefathers of
rears ago when they prescribed that "three times yearly shalt
hou make a pilgi image to Jerusalem." The thought of getting
together and exchanging views with one another has always
Drought splendid results.
Much splendid work was initiated at this convention. With
}r.en like Dr. Frank Coret and Elry Stone as leaders in the or-
ganization we lock forward to much being accomplished. The
Student Union activities at Florida will accomplish much if tlK
pi tvlous rectfrd of its chairman, Harry Simonhoff is to be taken
is an omen of future achievement. The Anti-Defamation com-
-ittee will produce results because of the recognition that all
cf Florida must be united to combat the common enemy of
!emocracy, those who delight in propagating hatred and un-
Lmericanism.
If we got together oftener, rf those of one Lodge were to
|p:sit those of another at frequent intervals during the year,
Luch would be done towards growth of communal responsibi-
lities.
We feel that much has been accomplished by the two day's
tay.

PLEASE
Perhaps it would be a bit of rea^
education that would be extremely
helpful if some of j/bu would get
a copy of "An Open Letter to my
Fellow Jews" by James Waterman
Wise, son of the distinguished
Jewish leader, Rabbi Stephen S.
Wise. The cost is only two cents
ar.d the educational value is tre-
mendous.

Some of you scoffers who
thought it was such a great joke
when one of our local dailies gave
a front pare-Btoflr about a ceme-
tery episode might not feel so
good now, when a look at the
court records would disclose the
case as having been dismissed. It
might be a good idea for those of
you who do little for the commu-
nity but criticize a lot, to think
before you jump.
HARRY MARKOWITZ
who was elected to Executive
Board of Jewish War Veterans.
Now that mushroom synagogues
are to be eliminated from the
Beach, it might not be amiss to
eliminate "confessions loss" Jews;
those Jews who in Germany and
other continental European coun-
tries would deny the'r affiliations
with any wing of Jewry to escape
taxes. We have many of these
"Jews" who are not Jews who
with a little bit of persuasion
would join a synagogue or temnle
and in a slight measure begin the
trek back to their own people.
THE JEWISH WAR VETERANS
The handful of delegates from the Freda Markowitz Post of
Jewish War Veterans who succeeded in bringing the 1939
encampment of the National organisation to Miami is to be
Ltrongly commended on their victory. It is indeed a stupendous
l.sk for an organisation so young to try and convince a large
-ga-zation, especially when large cities like Washington and
levelard were in opposition.
The encampment of an organisation such as The Jewish
far Veterans will mean much to this area, more because of the
ioral victory in demonstrating that Jews were as they now are,
llir.g and ready to give of their very lives for the protection
these United 8tates than of any monetary gain that may
laccrue.
Plans for the financing of this gigantic task must be under-
| taken at once. In these plans and in the general welcome to the
13 legates attending the 1939 encampment we believe the entire
IJ v ish community will realise its duty to aid. Yet it is trusted
and hoped that the high ideals of the Jewish War Veterans will
ever be kept in mind and that the pitfalls always surrounding
good causes will be avoided. Above all it is sincerely suggested
that those who make it a business to make money out of such
undertakings (such as professional solicitors) be kept com-
I pletely out of the picture.
Our aid in this undertaking is proffered, as will, we hope
I these of all forward looking Jews in this area.
The Greater Miami Zionist Dis-
trict which has been hibernating
for so long would perhaps arise
out of its Van Winklian sleep if
the High Holy Days would be uti-
lized to acquaint the Greater Mi-
ami synagogue goers with the
real problem confronting them. An
idea suggested by one of its mem-
bers, that of cutting the dues
down to three dollars annually
even if it eliminated the maga-
zines that go with the larger dues
would aid greatly in increasing
membership. We note that Chica-
go weeklies are sponsoring such a
move. Had We not better consider
this, too.
How about the establishment of
a, good-will movement between
ourselves. So many of us do not
know each other because we are
too deeply immersed in our own
ideas and ideals to bear in mind
that others too have thoughts of
their own. Thus misunderstand-
ings arise for whi h there arc no
rhymes or reasons.
Despite all talk nothing has yet
been done towards the realization
of a city-wide Board of Education
whose object it would be to estab-
lish real Jewish education in thi."
area. Such a Board could easily
increase attendance in Hebrew
schools ten fold and systematize
the haphazard methods now in
vogue. In these penitential days
soon approaching might th's not
be given some thought.
At one of the sessions of the
recent Florida State Federation
B'nai B'rith Convention a young
Miami attorney brought home the
important thought of the abysmal
ignorance of so many of our grown
folk of not only Jewish history
but of current Jewish events. May-
hap such a course could be started
in Miami and some of our adults
there receive that education they
need in present every day life.
bill from his pocket and handed it to the solicitor who thanked
him profusely. As the solicitor was about to leave, Rabbi Cohen
called him back und handed him a quarter. The solicitor was
surprised and aiked "Why this quarter?" Rabbi Cohen re-
plied, "I hope you will be good enough to see that the institution
receives at least a quarter from me."
Perhaps this may be exaggerated somewhat. Yet there is
much to this story that you and I should think about. Don't we
want the institutions we desire to aid to get something.
We cannot help but tell you of what we believe u one of
the most potent arguments in favor of Federation of Chanties
than to relate the story of Rabbi Henry Cohen of Oalveston,
Texas, one of the Southwest "s leading Rabbis and most beloved
leaders.
It is told that one morning a representative of a European
Orphanage came to the Rabbi and painted a vivid word picture
of the dire distress that the institution was in. Rabbi Cohen
listened carefully, and not beirg a rich man, took a five dollar

HIGH HOLY DAY SERVICES
In attempting to partially ful-

ing the synagogue truly "a house
of prayer for all the people,"
Temple Israel announces with jus-
tified pride that no charges of any
sort will be made to members of
the Temple for admission to the
services on the High Holy Days.
The Rabbis, and the officers,
also invite all German and Aus-
trian refugees in the community
to be the guests of the Temple
during the High Holy Days, and
during the rest of the year.
All Jewish students of the Uni-
versity of Miami are also cordially
invited to attend services.
It is an accepted policy of Tem-
ple Israel that every Jew who
wishes to worship with us, is wel-
come, regardless of financial ob-
ligation. If you know, therefore,
of any person or family unable \o
pay for tickets, kindly notify the
Temple office and tickets will be
sent without embarrassment to
recipients involved.
Members may receive tickets for
the High Holy Days by calling at
the Temple office. A special of-
fice in the Shoreland Arcade will
be open the week prior to the High
Holy Days, for the convenience of
our members.
IN MEMORIAM
The Rabbis, officers and mem-

with sorrow the passing of two
outstanding members of the
Temple and the Jewish commu-

ter them our deepest sympathy
is extended. Both men had at-
tained great success in their bus-
iness endeavors. Both men were
torn away from their loved ones
at a premature time. Both men
create an unfilled void in the
general Jewish community in
whose endeavors they participat-
ed. They shall however, be es-
pecially missed by Temple Is-
rael, the institution to which
they gave their allegiance, and
their memory will be perpetu-
ated in the annals of our Con-
gregation. Profoundly do we

Does Anti-Semitism Exist In
America?
BY RUSSELL W. DAVENPORT
Managing Editor of Fortune Magazine
To most American Jews the
question asked in the title of
this article would sound rather
cockeyed in view of what we
know to be the present status
of anti-Semitism in this coun-
try. But Mr. Davenport an-
swers the question in the nega-
tive by a different definition of
the term anti-Semitism. You
may not agree with him, but
you'll be stirred by his analysis
of this vital question.
THE EDITOR.
The question of the Jews in
America is one to which I and my
associates on Fortune have devot-
ed considerable thought. It is a
question, we believe, which goes
directly to the root of many of the
world's most serious economic and
political troubles; which, indeed,
cannot be discussed without refer-
ence to those troubles and without
taking sides concerning the solu-
tion of them. In other words, it
i our feeling that what has been
called anti-Semitism a phrase
which I shall presently defineis
not an isolated problem, but is
rather symptomatic of even pro-
founder problems which must be
solved if our civilization is any
longer to survive. By this I do
not mean that the survival of civ-
ilization hinges upon the solution
to anti-Semitism. That would be
a gross exaggeration. I mean
rather, that anti-Semitism arises
from, and is caused by, the very
forces which are unsettling the
politics, and now especially the
economics of the modern world.
Anti-Semitism is an inevitable by-
product of the action of those
forces; just as prohibitive tariffs
are an inevitable by-product, and
trad? quotas, and extended armies,
and threats of war.
To make my meaning clear it
will be necessary to begin where
Fortune's article-on Jews in Amer-
ica began; that is, with a defini-
t;on of anti-Semitism. Here it is
necessary to proceed very care-
fully. In one sense anti-Semitism
has always existed, because latent
prejudice against the Jews, as
Rabbi Joel Blau has said, "dates
back to the beginnings of the
Jewish people." Here in America
this prejudice has made it difficult
or impossible for Jews to enter
certain clubs and certain social
c'rcles. Prejudice like that is de-
plorable; but in Ameria, at any
rate, it has been almost entirely
*o ial (in the narrow sense of
the word society) and I am sure
that that is not what is in your
mind when you speak of anti-Sem-
tism today. I am sure that you
have in mind something at once
more specific and more general.
What we mean when we talk about
anti-Semitism today isto quote
Fortune" a deliberately incited,
affirmative, racial phobia." It is
the emotion or state of mind of
being against the Jews, and of
actively expressing one's antagon-
ism in personal speech and propa-
ganda, or by outright persecution.
Anti-Semitism in this sense U the
crystallized thought or action of
a majority group against a min-
ority group. It is therefore cap-
able of gathering unto itself a
mass of opinion and dogma which
wai not originally a part of it.
Beginning with that small,, half-
hidden prejudice which the Chris-
tian world has always had against
the Jews, it assumes economic and
patriotic Aspects which could not
have been deduced from the origi-
nal premises by any process of
logic or reason. In Germany today
anti-Semitism is performing poli-
tical and patriotic functions which,
if they were not so tragic, could
be described as ridiculous.
Some of us feel that ant'-Semit-
ism, in the sense just defined, ex-
ists in the United States, either
actually or potentially. To those
who believe that it actually exists,
I can only say that I do not agree,
and that their belief seems to me
alarmist and unwarranted by the
facts. Indeed, I would say to
these people: "If you believe anti-
Semitism actually exists in the
United States today, you have
missed the definition of, you' have
utterly under-rated anti-Semitism.
You have mistaken something su-
perficial (the ape-old prejudice
against the Jews) for something
profound.
But there are others who, on
much sounder grounds, believe
that anti-Semitism potentially ex-
ists in the United States. And I
cannot help but agree with them.
I think we have all observed evi-
dences, or at least had suggestions
of it. A member of our staff the
other day, wishing to get out of
town for a swim, called up an inn
on the Connecticut shore to make
a reservation for dinner. He was
ut.'known at the innwhich calls
itself a club, though it caters more
or less to the general publicand
was asked whether or not he was
what the manager called a He-
brew. Admitting that he was not.
he was then asked whether his
companion would be a Hebrew; at
which point, I am glad to report,
he flung down the telephone. An-
other member of our staff found
a small poster a few inches square
on a telegraph pole in Connecticut
reading, "Help Save America.
Don't buy from Jews!" And 1
think we have all heard similar
disquieting stories from other
parts of the country.
I must urge you, however, not
to take these reports too serious-
ly. Indeed, if you were to ask
me whether or not anti-Semitism
exists potentially in the U. S., my
answer would not be based upon
such stories as these at all. They
do not prove anything whatever.
The answer to whether anti-Semit-
ism exists potentially or not lies
in the state of mind of the people
of the United States concerning,
not the Jews, but the people of
the United States themselves. In
brief, I should like to give you this
paradox: that the Jewish problem,
if there is a Jewish problem, is
not a Jewish problem at all.
I can make my meaning a little
clearer to you by pointing out the
historical fact that, by the large,
democracy has a better record
with regard to the Jewish people
than any other governmental
form. The reason for this is ob
vious. In a democratic political-
economy each individual has the
same fundamental rights as every
other individual, regardless of
race, color or creed. So long as
the people as a whole cling to tnis
concept, they will not-ftbey dare
notpermit the. growth ^ of pres-
sure-groups that are too powerful
to be controlled. But if ever for
any reason the concept of demo-
cracy ceases to grip them, then
it is altogether inevitable that
pressure groups should arise. They
arise for economic reasons, for
geographic reasons, or for purely
emotional reasons. And their ef-
fect is two-fold. On the one hand
they unify groups of people, who
presumably, are afraid of some-
thing, though they may not
know what; and on the other hand,
until one big pressure-group wins
out in the end (as, for instance, in
the case of prohibition) they break
up the political economy into
warring elements which have their
own welfare more at heart than
the welfare of the system as a
whole.
Now we have had pressure-
groups in the United States in
the past, but up to now, at any
rate, they have not been entirely
out of control. There was, for ex-
ample, the Klu Klux Klan. There
was prohibition, which got out of
control for a while. The American
Legion hashappily confided
most of its pressure to bonuses
and pensions. Nevertheless, I
think it is clear that pressure-
groups are more numerous and
more insistent now than they used
to be. Fortune recently published
an article by Dr. Raymond Leslie
Buell called Death by Tariff, in
which the existence of economic
pressure groups in the United
States was shown. These groups
are erecting internal tariffs, one
against the other, and are thus
threatening the fundamental prem-
ise of the democratic political
economy. Certain capitalist or-
ganizations seem to me to possess
the character of pressure groups;
and certain labor organizations
too.
Now anti-Semitism is a pressure
group phenomenon. It is nothing
else. Groups of persons here and
there become afraid. They do not
know what they are afraid of, but
some of them might have had
some unpleasant experiences with
Jews (or it might have been Cath-
olics, or Japanese or Eskimos.)
They erect an emotional thesis
and they present this to their per-
sons and groups who are afraid.
All these persons, mind you. must
have abandoned hope for the dem-
ocratic political economy, must
have relinquished that ideal. If
they have not yet relinquished it
they will resist the pressure. If
they have, then they will fall for
it, and the anti-Semitic pressure
group will grow until it becomes
a majority pressure-group against
a helpless minority. That would
be anti-Semitism.
Consequently, when asked
whether anti-Semitism potentially
exists, I look to the state of af-
fairs in the political economy; and
in the light of Dr. Buell's article
(which never once mentioned Jews)
and of some of my own observa-
tions, my feeling is that the Amer-
ican people today are in danger
of loosening their grip upon the
political and economic principles
which they inherited from the
past. I say in danger, because
I don't think they really have, and
I don't think they really will. I
think they just have a case of in-
d'gestion, having had too many
theories thrust at themand -not
enough work. But I do think that
for the time being they are very
susceptible to pressure-g r o u p
emotionalismor shall we call it
psychosis.
Assuming, then, that there is
danger in the rise of pressure
groups, what is an intelligent and
ambitious Jew to do? Is he to
lie down and take it? He has too
much self-respect for that. Is he,
on the other hand, to organize an-
qther pressure-group to combat
the pressure-group? It seems

CIVIC LEAGUE HEBREWS

proud after beating the Golden

losing 4. This brought a sound
robin which was won by the Civic

COLLEGE NIGHT
clear that such a course would be
suicidal. A pressure-group to
fight anti-Semitism not only ex-
cites more trouble, but it strikes
a blow at the one and only politi-
cal system that has decently pro-
tected the Jew in this world; at
the democratic system, under
which pressure-groups of the kind
we are talking about cannot pos-
s'bly arise.
I realize that the temptation to
combat anti-Semitism with pres-
sure groups is almost over-power-
ing. But I cannot urge too strong-
ly the futility to say nothing of
the danger of it. The reason ;t ie
futile is because you are not here"
dealing with facts, but with emo-
tions. In my opinion, the greatest
contribution made by Fortune's
article on Jews in America was its
clear demonstration of the myth
that the Jews control America.
Running down the entire gamut
of American industry and govern-
ment, Fortune disposed of the
myth that the Jews run America;
though it found that they domi-
nate the amusement industries;
and it found also that the Jews
contribute their full share of the
talent and ability of the country.
But the point I wish to make is
that, confronted with an emotional
pressure-group, indisputable fa~ts
like these are of no'avail. The
counter-pressure group which cites
themequally emotionally per-
hapscan only stir up animosity
(Continued on Page Six)
Last Saturday night the "Y"
played host to the lads and lassies
who are about to enter the schools
of higher learning. Jerry Bass,
who acted as master of ceremonies
with the aid and assistance of the
Executive Director, arranged this
affair.
AMATEUR NIGHT
What promises to be a fine ev-
ening will take place Sunday night
September 11th at the "Y," when
our amateur show will be present-
ed. The inter-club spelling bee
will be held in conjunction with the
amateur show.
CULTURAL MEETING
Last Tuesday evening another
in a series of cultural meetings
was held at the "Y." Dr. Abra-
ham Wolf son con'luded his talk on
"SpinozaA Life.of Reason."
LABOR DAY PICNIC
I a*t Monday our annual basket
narty was held. It was in reality
in old-fashioned family reunion.
Through the kindness of the Dunn
Bus Company, a large, comfort-
able bus -*ed many of our
members an -nds to and from
the picnic grounds. Let these par-
ties take place more often. It
goes a long way toward cement-
ing an everlasting friendship.
ATTENTION!
Parents who have children un-
der sixteen years of age, our Ex-
ecutive Director has devised a
plan to take care of the "club"
needs of boys and girls under 16
years of age. With the assistance
of Mrs. Gadon, who has had con-
siderable experience with similar
groups in New-York Mr. Maurice
Grossman is now preparing plans
which will be announced at an
early date.

BETH DAVIDS OPENING
AFFAIR
Vital Important Urgent !
Members and wives of Beth David
Congregation are invited to attend
the first congregational dinner
and meeting to be held this coming
Sunday at 7.00 p. m. Due to the
tremendous increase in our mem-
bership, we find it necessary to
emphasize that reservations are
essential! We cannot be respon-
sible for lack of seating facilities
if you have not phoned in your
reservations. This is the congre-
cation's treat at no expense to you.
We desire to meet often and know
each other better. This occasion
will honor the old workers and
pioneers who labored for our in-
stitution and aided greatly in the
promotion of its welfare. Mr. Isi-
dor Cohen, well-known to all of
us tot his splendid achievements
for Beth David in particular and
Miami Jewry in general, will le
the toastmaster. The recent ac-
complishments of the new admin
istration under the capable leader-
ship of Mr. M. J. Kopelowitz will
be presented in the form of brief
congregational business and meet-
ing. It is noteworthy and most
outstanding to be able to state
that twenty-five new members
have been secured in the past
three weeks. The new members
will be introduced at the dinner by
the president.
Remember! Sunday evening,
sharply at 7:00 p. m., our first
congregational dinner and meeting
honoring the old timers and pio-
neers of our institution!

Reservations are coming in very
fast; considering the early dai
it is quite surprising. Plesse

immediately if you desire to be

and his committee are ready to

XXX
OUR DEEP GRATITUDE
It is with great appreciation
that we express our deep grati-
tude to an old time worker of our
institution who constantly has OUT
welfare close to his heart. When
Mr. M. Rippa felt that our i ?lig-
ious institution lacked the proper
drinking facilities for our childri a
and adults, he immediately pur-
chased a beautiful electric water
device to our great satisfaction.
When Mr. Rippa felt that a beau-
tiful insignia in the form of a
large "Mogen Dovid" was essen-
tial in order to beautify our syna-
gogue, he immediately erected it
at the entrance of our house of
worship. When Mr. Rippa realiz-
ed that the High Holidays are fast
approaching and no consideration
was given to the ventilation prob-
lem in case of tremendous heat,
he purchased at a vast expense,
two large, beautiful electric fans
which are already installed in our
synagogue. The Rabbi president
and Board of Directors pray unto
the Almighty that He recompense
such a loyal member with many
more years to live and continue
to perform such great "Mitzvos"
that do redound to his credit. May
he and his wife enjoy sound health
and continue to gain respect which
they enjoy in our midst.

Does Anti-Semitism
Exist in America?
and give direction to the unreas-
oning fear upon which anti-Semit-
ism is always founded.
What, then, is the Jew to do.
The answer, it seems to me is per-
fectly clear. Since the democratic
political economy has received him
more open-mindedly and has of-
fered him more opportunity than
any other; and since this form of
political economy contains within
itself, when it is functioning well,
the only known safeguard against
groups; since these things are so,
it would seem to me that the Jew
should concern himself always and
Refugree Problem
Is Discussed
JerusaleM. (WNS Palcor Agen-
cy.It was learned from Arab
sources that an appeal addressed
to Arab terrorists by leading Mos-
lem religious leaders urging them
to abstain from murder and vio-
lence during the three-month pen-
itential period known as SheSur
Al Haram, was angrily rejected by
leaders of the disorders.
In some instances the Arab ter-
rorists showed their displeasure
with the plea of the Moslem clergy
by sending threatening letters to
Moslem priests. The appeal to
the terrorist ringleaders is said to
have been signed by prominent
Arab religious figures, including
the-Kadi of Jerusalem and the
Mufti of Acre. It urged that Shc-
hur Al Haram, which, according t >
Islamic tradition is devoted to in-
tensive prayer, should not be 'Vio-
lated by continued bloodshed.

every day with the defense, the

velopment of that political econo-
mic system. The Jew's answer to
potential anti-Semitism is good
citizenship. He should make of
himself an exponent, not primarily
of his group, not primarily of any
other group, but of those ideals
already mentioned. He should
make himself an exponent of them
and he should make himself a stu-
dent of ways and means for en-
acting them. We have in the city
of New York, as I need scarcely
tell you, several political leaders
who are Jews but whose conduct,
| as measured by democratic stan-
dards, has made me, who am not
a Jew, proud to be an American.
That is the type of lifenot nec-
essarily public, not necessarily
famedwhich I urge the Jews of
America to adopt. I urge upon
them a citizenship which will make
all other Americans proud af their
citizenship. And I submit that
if the four and a half million Jews
in America were to affect other
American citizens in this way, an
anti-Semitic movement could never
actually arise.

The B'nai B'rith Convention held
on September 4th and 5th at West
Palm Beach was the largest at-
tended sad most successful :on-
vention of the State Federation.
Well over three hundred delegates.
memSers and guests were pre .en:.
The high spot of the coavertion
was the allocation of $250* for the
promotion of student union acti-
vities. The careful consideration
this phase of our work received
from the delegates speaks well for
the progressive action o.* Florida
B'nai B'rith. This part of oar
work is tremendously important
sad if the convention in assembly
had done nothing else it would
have accomplished considerable.
Much discussion was had concern-
ing our anti-Defamation program
and the committee to be appointed
I am sure will handle this work
very satisfactorily. Every Lodge
ha the state cooperated so beauti-
fully, one with the other, and the
delegates worked together so har-
moniously that the convention
could not help but be anything but
the success that it was. West
Palm Beach Lodge served ss per-
fect hosts and the arrangement
and facilities extended made the
convention so delightful.
Our own Dr. Frank Coret was
elected president of the Federa-
tion and our swell president, Elry
Stone, secretsry. With such men
heading the Federation for the
next year we sre bound to go plae-
es and do things. In other words,
I definitely predict that this com-
ing year will see our Federation
power in this state. The respec-
tive Lodges will be inoculated
with such enthusiasm and con-
structive assistance that they will
do more good than ever before and
Florida will hare the brightest
B'nai B'rith year.
Next year the Convention will
be held in Jacksonville and if we
can expect as much from Jackson-
ville as we received from West
Palm Beach then it will be a Con-
vention no one should miss.
Brother Ben Le Vine gave a very
interesting talk during which he
stated "As long as I am alive Mi-
ami will have the biggest, greatest
and best Lodge in the State."
Please God, Ben lives to be one
hundred sad twenty years. Whst
s B'nai B'rith enthusiast!
Dr. Albert Bosenthsl sad Stan-
ley Myers were real cut-ups. They
were splendid in their soup sad
fish. A Joe College Mate
Campus combination of the first
water. Swell guys and really
community minded.
Dr. Harold Rand made an inter-
esting talk to Heloise Blaekmen.
"Go Ga." ha said. "Go Go." aha
said. And so they lived happily
ever after.
Milt Friedman made a spell
binding speech to Connie Lee.
"Dance," said he, "Yes." said she
and so they lived happily ever
after.
Harry Wolfe was overheard tell-
ing Beulah Godwin of the effi-
cieney of Federal Savings. Oh
desr!
Rudy Adler's pal. Chief of Poi^.
Millburn, who saved the day a*J
later saved the aite for more than
thirty of Miami B'nai B'r.then.
So it goes until next week.

Harry Schwartz made a most
impressive speech at the conven-

beautiful wife." The way he fol-
lowed her around one would think
he was engaged instead of mar-
ried. Lovewhat are you doing

Die Levin made a cracker-jack
address and among other things
predicted the finest year for B'nsi
B'rith during 1939. Don't forget

Pat Cannon's speech was very
significant. Pat is, and has si-r
ways been, against all oppression.'
We can count on a definite friend
in the lower house of Congress.
Harry' Adelberg, president of
the Fifth District, urged us to be
liberal in all our actions and con-
duct and fight for the principles
of freedom and democracy. His
tale of our brethren in foreign
countries was very touching and
brought us fsce to face with real-
ism. He brought us greetings
from the district and urged us to
carry on our good work.
