ITALY FORBIDS
SHECHITA USE
. (WNS)Although the
1 government recently prom-
ised ihat its anti-Jewish program
wouid not affect the right of Jews
to practice their religion uninter-
ruptedly, this promise was broken
last week when the Gazeta del
Popolo revealed that the practice
of r.echita had been forbidden
throughout Italy. The ban on
ta was communicated by the
government in a circular telegram
to all local prefects instructing
them to forbid the Jewish ritual
for slaughtering animals.
Tee Gazeta del Popolo publish-
ed the order under the heading
"Government Provision Ends Bar-
Uric Practice." No new legisla-
tion is required to outlaw ahechita
in Italy because in IMS a law wa
Passed providing that killing of
animals must be as speedy aa pos-
"*W, either by shooting or stun-
ning with a blow. Jews were spec-
ifically exempt from that law. Thi
exornption Is now revoked.
Hebrew Teachers
Ask For the Limit
New York, (WNS)A two-year
ban on the admission of new stu-
dents to Hebrew teachers training
schools was demanded in one of a
series of resolutions adopted at the
first convention of Hebrew teach-
ers' union at which a permanent
National Federation of Hebrew
Teachers Unions was organized.
The federation asked that no new
applications be accepted
critical unemployment
among Hebrew teachers
viated.
Other steps taken by the con-
vention included the drafting of a
-ode of salaries and working con-
ditions, formation of a national
central employment agency, a plea
to federations and welfare funds
grant increased appropriations
until the
situation
was alle-
to
a move
for Jewish education and
to expand the New York licensing
bureau for Jewish teachers into a
national movement. Solomon Mar-
enoff was elected president and
Dr. S. Zaleski secretary. Perma-
nanent headquarters are to be es-
tablished in Chicago.
New Southern Unit
Formed to Aid Jews
In Distress Overseas
OFFICERS WILL
BE INSTALLED
Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 23.Respond-
ing to the need for increased aid
to distressed Jewish communities
in Europe, "in view of the recent
blows to Jewish existence in Italy,
Austria, Hungary and Czechoslo-
vakia," 521 Jewish leaders from
seven southern states today form-
ed a permanent southern regional
organization of the American Jew-
ish Joint Distribution Committee.
The seven states include Alabama,
Florida, Eastern Louisiana, South
Carolina, Mississippi, Tennessee
and Georgia.
Harold Hirsch, of Atlanta, was
named southern regional chairman
for the year.
Formation of the permanent or-
ganization was accomplished after
the delegates to an all-day con-
ference at the Atlanta Biltmore
Hotel had heard reports from
James G. McDonald, chairman of
the President's Advisory Commit-
tee on Political Refugees, and from
national executives of the Joint
Distribution Committee, the chief
American agency aiding oppressed
Jews overseas, on the critical con-
dition created by the recent world-
shaking events in Europe. Mr.
McDonald addressed the meeting
by telephone broadcast from New
York.
Addressing the meeting in per-
son were Rabbi Jonah B. Wise,
national chairman of the Joint Dis-
tribution Committee campaign;
Joseph C. Hyman, executive direc-
tor of the committee; Isidor Coons
national campaign director; Mrs.
Pauline Baerwald Falk, national
chairman of the junior division of
the committee; Mr. Hirsch and
Rabbi David Marx of Atlanta.
To serve with Regional Chair-
man Hirsch, the following were
named as regional vice-chairmen:
AlabamaWilliam P. Engel, Bir-
mingham; Florida Baron de

SIGN IS CAUSE
OF NEAR RIOT
New York. (WNS)An aged
woman wearing a sign denouncing
lews caused a near-riot within a
,tone's throw of the City Hall last
week. Mrs. Frances Parr, 68, waa
walking along Chamber Street
from Broadway to Centre wearing
on her back an oilcloth aign bear-
ing attacks on Jewa and the
words: "Framed, convicted and pa-
roled by the Jews." A threatening
crowd gathered areund her and
began shouting "rip It off." The
sign was ripped off before the wo-
man was rescued by a policeman.
PROTEST MEETING
WILL BE HELD
Joining the hundreds of Jewish
communities throughout the United
States, Greater Miami will hold a

Wednesday evening, November 2nd
beginning at 8:00 o'clock and will

tine and the destruction of the
Balfour declaration.
This evening will mark the
twenty-first anniversary of the
Balfour Declaration under which
lirita'n waa given the mandate for
a Jewish homeland in Palestine.
Among the speakers will be A.
Pat Cannon, Congressman desig-j
nate, from the Fourth Florida Con-

gall, prominent attorney and vice,
president of the Greater Miami!
Zionist District will preside.
The local B'nai B'rith Lodge is j
cooperating in this meeting and
urges it* membership to attend
and participate. _
TUNE IN SUNDAY
MORNING AT 9:00
The Jewish Floridian will
again present another in iU
erieeof weekly broadcast*
thi coming Sunday mondng
orer Station WKAT (1600 k.
e.) at 9:00 o'clock. It's fall
of interesting newt and com-
menta and muiic.
The skeptic who doubts that
there is a life-force in human so-
ciety, giving it functions and pow-
ers similar to those with which we
take for granted in individual liv-
ing: organisms, would do well to
consider carefully the history of
the Mohammedans. In the same
unconscious and unpredictable
manner in which the heart of the
individual responds to disease and
anti-bodies are created in the blood
to ward off the attack of hostile
germs, the vital forces of civiliza-
tion called the Arabs out of the
desert land to preserve the mind
of the western world when it
stood in its grettest peril.
No one, no matter how wise,
living in the sixth century of the
Common Era, just a generation be-
fore the rise of Islam could have
predicted the event. The Western
Roman Empire had collapsed; the
Eastern Empire was in the hands
of men who called themselves
Christians, but were little better
than pagans. Some of the sav-
ages who controlled Europe had
been baptized, but Christianity had
little hold on any of them. Learn-
ing had reached its lowest ebb.
The whole world seemed moving
in a rapidly descending spiral, the
bottom of which no one could -
ceive. War had led to disorgani-
zation; disorganization to anarchy;
anarchy to the interruption of
commerce, the cessation of indus-
try, the impoverishment of the
world, the disappearance of learn-
ing. These in turn led to further
war and further disorganization,
increasing the world turmoil and
boding ruin to the last remnants
of civilized life. The Church and
iis monasteries, the last refuge or
human thought, were rapidly fall-
ing to the standards of their en.
vironment, like islands of civiliza-
tion being worn down by the sur-
rounding tides of a sea of ignor-
ance and barbarism.
BIBLE CAUGHT FIRE IN SOUL
OF CAMEL DRIVER
Just at this moment, casual con-
versations with some Jewish and
Christian traders who came to
Mecca aroused in the heart of an
ignorant camel-driver sufficient
faith in the God of the Scriptures
to make him the exponent of a
third form of the Prophetic Tra-
dition, and the founder of a new
empire and civilization. The men
who talked to him were neither
rabbis nor priests; yet there was
sufficient force in their words to
transform Mohammed into one of.
the foremost personages in worl-i
history. Within a hundred and fifyt
years after he had began to preach
his form of Monotheism, the fa:th
he founded had millions of fol-
lowers; the Caliphate, which was
its physical counterpart, extended
from the Ganges to the Atlantic
Ocean; and world learning, indus-
try and commerce had found a
new home in the Empire of Arabs.
Driven on by the enormous en-
ergy of their new faith, the Arabs
made themselves masters in prac-
tically every field of cultural en-
deavor. They had not, like the

CO-OPERATION
The finest example of co-operation that has been shown in
recent years by the Jews of this country was that exhibited dur-
ing the past two weeks by every wing of Jewry in uniting to
tbe call to arouse the world t othe danger of Great Britain
scrapping the Balfour Declaration. The splendid spirit shown
by the Jews resulted in non-Jews coming to the fore. We hope
that the mass meetings to be held throughout the country on
November 2nd and we shall have one in Miami, will further
crystalwe public opinion and avert the dangers in Palestine,
all of us fear.
This spirit of co-operation should not be confined to world
problems alone. In Miami this spirit of co-operation has man-
dated itself so that well nigh a unanimous sentiment has de-
veloped and is becoming stronger each day in favor of the
Greater Miami Federation of Jewish Welfare Funds. Hadas-
sai, the Council df Jewish Women, the Jewish Welfare Bureau,
locally, and numerous national and overseas organisations have
enthusiastically endorsed the Federation and agreed to accept
tbe tentative allotments allocated to their institutions.
That institution, if there be one, that will hold itself high-
er than the need of the community because of the short-sighted-
nett of a few un-informed, misguided and selfish individuals,
and will refuse to participate with and in the funds of the Fed-
eration should bear in mind that "kol hamon, k'kol Bbaddai,
the -voice of the people is as the voice of God." They will find
that the public will decline, and properly so, to continue its
support. It will merit and will receive the condemnation of the
public and perforce must soon drop from the scene of activity.
The Jewish Floridian sincerely hopes that the unanimity of
opinion and action regarding the Federation will not be d*-
turned. The spirit df co-operation shown everywhere must and
should be continued in Miami.______^____________________

quite simple, "The opportunity to

cial side of the order is important;
but even more so, is the more ser-
ious side-that of ever being
watchful to safeguard the fair

RESOLUTIONS
At a special meeting of the
Beard of Directors of Beth Jac-
ob Congregation held Wednes-
day, October 26th, the following
resolutions were adopted.
Whereas it hss pleased Al-
mighty God in the exercise of
His Divine wisdom to remove
from our midst the late Morris
Abraham, one of the founders of
this Congregation and ita treas-
urer at the time of his demise;
And whereas the said Morris
Abraham devoted himself whole
hesrtedly to the work of Congre-
gation Beth Jacob at all times
and by his example and aid help-
ed this Congregation erect the
old, and present synagogue edi-
fices;
And whereas his loss to this
Congregation is irreparable;
Be it resolved, that this Con-
gregation, its officers and direc-
tors, bowing their heads to the
decree of Almighty God do here-
by extend their heartfelt sym-
pathies to the widow and sons
of the deceased, and express the
hope that his deeds and accom-
plishments will be their solace
in their loss;
And be it further resolved that
a copy of these resolutions be
forwarded to the family of the
deceased and placed upon the
permanent records of this Con-
gregation.

This is your Council commenta-
tor bringing you the news of the
month. Our membership drive,
from October 24th through No-
vember 15th is in full swing under
the able chairmanship of Mrs. Al
Seiden in Miami and Mrs. Leo
Kupper on Miami Beach. They are
being assisted by a number of very
able and prominent women who
should surpass our goal of 75 new
members. I am certain that once
you are acquainted with the very
excellent Council program you will
be eager to join with us.
Some criticism has been heard
about the method of dues collection
by unthinking citizens, which I
feel is entirely unjustified. To car-
ry on our work properly, we must
have the necessary energy of fin-
ance. We do not have any paid
collectors. Earnest members, real-
izing the importance of the order,
have devoted their time and ef-
forts to get results. We then are
able to properly contribute to those
worthy efforts that deserve our
assistance and guidance. If these
critics will only stop to consider
the problem, they will readily see
the unjustness of their remarks.
Since I can happily repeat we have
had a successful year, I feel that
all honor is due to those men who
satisfactorily and earnestly estab-
lished the lodge on a sound finan-
cial basis. To them we owe our
success.
With the approach of the winter
season, plans are being made for
the resumption of our social acti-
vities. An outstanding event will
soon be announced for November.
Do you want to see our mem-
bership grow? If so, here is a
very simple suggestion that will
enable you to fulfill this wish. At
the next meeting you attend, bring
along some friend who is not a
memberlet him see the live-and
potent force of the Lodgeyou will
be surprised at the response you
will receive.
My congratulations to Brother
Stanley Myers and the earnest
men and women who are co-oper-
ating with him and bringing into
fruition, the much needed Federa-
tion.
I am happy to inform you that
our section has awarded three
scholarships to the University of
Miami. These awards were made
to Martha Neeham, Evelyn Aus-
lander and Robert Kaplan.
Our Immigration office, under
the able chairmanship of Mrs.
Samuel Basker, is humming with
activity; taking care of all immi-
grants that contact our office at
510 Congress Build:ng. This being
our largest project, we are proud
that we are able to accomplish the
very fine work that is offered to
us through this medium.
I am anxious to bring to you the
Council's action on the Palestine
situation, the following message
was sent by Mrs. Maufioe Gold-
man, president of the National
Council of Jewish Women, to Sec-
retary of State, Cordell Hull:
"As a National Organisation of
50,000 women actively engaged hi
work for adjustment of victims of
European persecution, we are deep-
ly concerned and alarmed by re-
ports that the British Government
is planning repudiation of the man"
date for Palestine. In view of your
historic humanitarian act in calling
the Evian conference and in view
of the fact that Palestine has been
extremely important in offering
refuge, we urge you to use every
peaceful facility of your high of-
fice to help avert a decision which
will inevitably bring increased dis-
aster to innocent refugees."
The next Cultural meeting will
be held on the evening of Novem-
ber 2nd at the Lear School, 1500
Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, at
which time Dr. Ziebold will be the
speaker. All members and their
friends are invited.
The National Council of Jewish
Women is conducting a Poster
Contest of which I am to act as
chairman. The subject being "For-
eign Born Americans." The con-
tributions which the immigrant
has made to American civilization;
the purpose to instill in Ameri-
cans, young and old, an awareness
of the gifts which the foreign born
have made to our culture: these to
be the substance of the posters.
which we can deeply drink and re-
fresh ourselves during the trou-
bled days. How important they
then werehow equally important
they are today.
"Eternal vigilance is the price
of liberty."
"United we standdivided we
fall."
Thank God that we realize these
wise injunctions in Miami.
Sincerely,
ELRY STONE.
The regular monthly meeting
will be held Wednesday, November
2nd at 2:30 p. m., in Kaplan Hall.
The revised by-laws will be read
for the first time. A special peace
program will be presented by Mrs.
Harry Barnhard, peace chairman.
All members are urged to attend
and bring prospective members
with them. I hope to see you at
the meeting.
CATHOLICS URGED
T O PARTICIPATE
Bridgeport, Conn., The wish
that Roman Catholics take more
than an "unofficial" part in the
work of the National Conference
of Jews and Christians was ex-
pressed by the Rev. Dr. Herbert
W. Searle, General Secretary of
the Greater New York Federation
of Churches, in an address before
the annual convention of the Fair-
field County Council of Churches
and Religious Education her*.
Dr. Searle also urged that Juda-
ism present a more united opin-
ion among its representatives.
Dr. Searle discussed the work of
the National Conference as part
of a plea for the elimination of
"parochialism" among Christians.

of the American Revolution, re-
plete with philosophy and under-
standing, should be a source at,

vandals, destroyed the civilisa*
tions they encountered. On the
contrary, the Arabs absorbed all
possible forms of learning and
made them their own. They be-
eame the fervent disciples of the
Syrian Christians and the pagan
philosophers who had fled for ref-
uge to distant Persia. From these
masters the Arabs obtained a
knowledge of Greek classics into
their own tongue and added huge
commentaries to them. The Arabs
Bss|milated the learning and folk-
lore of India and became a means
for transmitting them to the wes-
tern world. They wrote works on
geofirnphv and history which are
still invaluable records of the
thought of their time, as well as
that of preceding ages. One of
their great teachers, Avicenna in
Persio. composed a Canon which
is to this day "considered a mile-
stone in the advancement of
Se'ence. Another, Averroes, liv-
ing at the other end of their world
in Spain, wrote books of philoso-
phy which, together with tho=e of
Maimonides, the eontemnorary
Tew, chang-ed the whole history of
western thought.
CONTRIBUTIONS AND FAIL-
URES OF ARAB TRADITION
Wherever we turn in modern
science we come upon vestiges of
the Arabs' activity. The numerals
which they brought from India to
Europe are described as Arabic.
One of th fundamental bran-hes
of mathematics is called by an Ar-
abic name, algebra. A whole ser-
ies o* scientific terms, in current
use,alkali, alembic, alcohol, al-
nianac, and dozens of others, are
of Arabic origin.
The caliph Omar had burned the
invaluable library at Alexandria.
say:ng that if its books contained
what was in the Koran they were
sunerfluous, and if they conta'ned
what was not in the Koran they
were heretical. But he was the
one notable exception to the rule.
Most of his successors were grent
matrons of learning, and served as
the saviors of civilization.
The Arabs achieved even more
in commerce and industry than in
'earning". The bazaars of Bag-
dad, their capital, became as im-
nortant ;n their day, as the mar-
kets of New York and London in
ours. There were good roads lead-
ine from one end of the Moham-
medan world to the other. There
was considerable travel. There
apart comparatively saf" shipping
lines. There was a regular pos-
tal system. And there was well-
orgsanized local and central gov-
ernment.
These material achievements
combined with other circumstanc-
es to brine the learning of the
Arabs to the West and to effect
the European renaissance. Cur-
iously enough, having: performed
this function for society, the Arab
Emnire began to fade. The Arabs
sank lower and lower, until today
the vsitor in Fes or Damascus
can hardly believe that seven cen-
turies ago the ancestors of these
backward people stood in the van-
guard of world thought.
The Arabs' inability to preserve
their empire may, like that of the
later Romans, be traced to their
half-hearted acceptance of the
Prophetic Tradition. The Arab
adopted the belief in the one God;
but he limited the doctrine of the
dignity of man to believers; and
he completely rejected Isaiah's
principle of world-peace. The en-
ergy the Arab derived from this
partial conversion to Scripture was
sufficient to make him the fojpi-
der and transmitter of a civiMta-
tion; but was far too meagre to
endow him with the rarer gift of
conferring immortality on his crea-
tion. Bagdad became a second
Rome, permeated and corrupted
with the luxury, the lewdness, the
eobenage, and the selfishness of
the former mistress of the world.
When the Mongols attacked the
Arabic Empire they discovered
that its huge body was, in fact,
a lifeless corpse. The spirit had
departed: the helpless giant could
be stripped and robbed with impu-
nity.

faith which Mohammed founded
survived his Empire; some rem-
nants of learning and poetry re-
mained among the fragments of
the caliphate; and to ths day the
two hundred millions of Moham-
medans still participate in world
thought and civilization by virtue
of the:r contact with the Scrip-
tures.

Plain Talk

Dear Mr. Segal:
Why dent you writ* something
en the subject of vocationa for
Jewish children. I bare an adol-
c scent soa of my own, and what
attain make of Masdoctor, law-
yer or panther It seems to me
the matter of vocations is one of
the most serious in our Jewish life
A. T. R.
o o
My Dear Sir:
My first impulse is to answer:
Let your son he a plumber. The
beneficent function of plumbers
constantly evokes more and more
of my admiration. When I draw
hot wate rinstantaneoualy in the
morr.injt. when I consider the san-
itary disposal of sewage. I say to
myself: "If you had been a plum-
ber you would be a useful person.
What are you now!"
Yet I am aware that your son.
If he became a lawyer, might turn
out to be another Brandeis or
Cardoso: or. if a doctor, he might
be the rery one to discover a cure
for cancer. My conscience would
feel guilty of sin against human-
kind to thin* that I had caused a
boy to become a plumber who.
were he a doctor instead, would
have cured cancer.
Still I don't think that this
thought need ever to be too heavy
mi my conscience: for the chances
re that your son would become
iu$t another lawyer or just anoth-
er doctor, one of the too many
Jewish doctors and lawyers.
1 can't get as angry as some
people do about quotas that limit
Ma number of Jewish students in
some of the medical colleges. (I
shall probably get hell for saying
this. My protest is or.ly against
inhuman people who would limit
Jews simply because they are
Jews.
1 believe that the quotas in the
medical college* are based on
sound economic realism rather
than oa anti-Semitism. At least
I hope so. for the sake of my faith
in Christians.) Since Jewish doc-
tors and Jewish lawyers must de-
rend largely upon Jews for pat-
ronage there has to be a wider
tribution of the few crumbs
every time new supplies of Jew-
ish doctors and lawyers issue from
the colleges. Sound economy sug-
gest* that, considering the limita-
- aa of the Jewish field, there
uld be a sharp curtailment of
the number of new Jewish doctors
and lawyer*.
I think that we ourselves there were totalitarian authority
in Jewry) might wisely establish
quotas: Only 50 Jewish bays shall
matriculate for law in the United
States this year: only 50 for med-
icine. (Something like that.)
Even while one deplores he can
understand the tragic eireamstane-
ea that hare beea driviag Jewish
youths into professional fields
that become more and more over-
crowded. Law and medicine are
scapes from anti-Semitism in brg

nty: but even the most meticulous
business integrity can not stand
against economic change. The old
jobbing houses went out of busi-
ness in our town aa elsewhere. In-
deed. Jewish business, in the small-
er cities, has become largely a
matter of small shop-keepers who
are troubled as to what to do about
their own sons.
Oh. there are plenty of big non-
Jewish businesses to which Jewish
boys might turn for jobs, but these
seem deeply concerned about God
and are insistent to employ only
people who worship God in the
right way. At least, one must
guess that they care a great deal
about God. for almost invariably
rheir application blanks inquire:
What is your religion?"
Once in a while a Jew answers
Unitarian" but I know of one
*ho answered: "I am a Jew but
ire you Christians?" Anyway, it
appears that the Mosaic concept
,>f God is not approved among the
big executives; at least, they sel-
dom have jobs for those who con-
fess being of the Jewish religion.
The constricting walls become
narrower and narrower for Jewish
youth, but (their parents suggest)
there are law and medicine to go
to. In law or medicine, it is be-
lieved, a man can build himself:
he doesn't have to depend on the
rood will of Mr. Zilch who likes
to say that some of his best friends
are Jews, but; nor does he have
to depend on the precarious issue
of some small business in a world
in which small business seems to
ha blowing away like dust in the
wind.
So we have the pathos of Jewish
::h running away from walls
that are closing in on him but
rinding no escape in professional
fields that become more barren as
more and more contest for the
harvest.

LATE FRIDAY EVENING
SERVICES
It was indeed a surprise to note
such a tremendous attendance at
the first service in the series of
our late Friday evening services.
We trust that all the members and
friends will attend regularly to ac-
quaint themselves with the relig-
ious ideals of our people and the
chaotic conditions existing abroad.
Wednesday, November 2nd, will
commemorate the 21st anniversary
of the issuance of the Balfour de-
claration granting the Jewish peo-
ple the right to create and estab-
lish a home land in Palestine. In
view of that occasion during the
service this coming Friday even-
ing at 8:15, Rabbi Shapiro will dis-
cuss the subject : Palestine's
QuandaryBlaming Israel again!"
Cantor I.ou;s Hayman assisted by
the Both David choir will chant the
traditional liturgic melodies. A
racial hour in the auditorium fol-
lows every service on Friday even-
ing. A Sisterhood committee head-
ed by Mrs. J. Engler is in charge.
JUNIOR SERVICES
The Junior Congregat'on has re-
sumed its religious activities for
the season. A very fine attendance
of boys and girls responded to the
first service held last Saturday
morn'ng. These services begin at
10:3i) and end at 11:45. We urge
parents to bring their children and
to become vitally interested in the
activities of the Junior Congrega-
tion.
Immediately after the services
the children assemble in the audi-
torium for the "Kiddush" served

EXTRA CURRICULAR
ACTIVITY
The teachers of the Beth David
and all other institutions who are
interested will meet every other
Sunday from 12:00 to 12:30 to dis-
cuss "Pedagogical rules and prob-
lems" with Mr. Stanley C. Myers
who will conduct the stutjy group.
The first meeting takes place this
coming Sunday immediately after
Sunday School. Adults who are
not teaching but who are interest-
ed are asked to be present as well.
Rahh; Max Shapiro will conduct
an adult parent discussion group
beginning Sunday morning, No-
vember 13th at 10:30 o'clock. The
objective of this group will be to
attain a proper understanding and
appreciation of the ceremonies,
laws, observances and culture of
Jewish life. Those who are inter-
ested to meet- with Rabbi Shapiro
please phone the office of the syn-
agogue. Further details as to the
construction of this group will be
mentioned in a later issue.
HEBREW SCHOOL
Hebrew classes for the coming
semester have already been organ-
ized and quite a few children of
last year have not as yet register-
ed. It is important that parents
do so at once. We are asking you
to bring your children in the af-
ternoon from 3:00 to 6:00 o'clock
and discuss the problem of trans-
portation or otherwise with the
principal. We are positive that a
proper solution can be arrived at.
We feel that it is the duty of
every parent whose child attends |
our religious institution to become
affiliated with our Congregation.
It is high time that we real're the
necessity of organized Jewish life
in our midst. There is no excuse
at all unless it be poverty, to re-
fuse to identify yourself with our
Congregation.
It is absolutely a mark of disloy-
alty and unheard of arrogance not
to affiliate yourself when your
child receives instructions at our
institution. Please join imme-
diately otherwise it is compulsory
to pay a tuition charge of $10.00
per season per child attending our
Sunday School and $3.00 per month
for children attending our Hebrew
School.
cers of the University of Miami
are pleased at this splendid contri-
bution on the part of B'nai B'rith.
JEWISH STUDENT WORK
At the request of a committee
representing the Jewish students
at the University of Miami, Rabbi
Shapiro lectured last Monday even-
ing on the subject: "The Jewish
College Student facing the prob-
I lem of Anti-Semitism." An en-
thusiastic group discussed the
problem at an open forum after
the lecture with a determination
to do their share toward the elimi-
nation of any such problem when-
ever confronting them. It is a step
in the right direction and we trust
that the students will continue
such constructive cultural work.

Si* Month* $2.00 $1.00 FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28,1938 VOLUME 11—NUMBER 42. CO-OPERATION The finest example of co-operation that has been shown in recent years by the Jews of this country was that exhibited during the past two weeks by every wing of Jewry in uniting to tbe call to arouse the world t othe danger of Great Britain scrapping the Balfour Declaration. The splendid spirit shown by the Jews resulted in non-Jews coming to the fore. We hope that the mass meetings to be held throughout the country on November 2nd and we shall have one in Miami, will further crystalwe public opinion and avert the dangers in Palestine, all of us fear. This spirit of co-operation should not be confined to world problems alone. In Miami this spirit of co-operation has mandated itself so that well nigh a unanimous sentiment has developed and is becoming stronger each day in favor of the Greater Miami Federation of Jewish Welfare Funds. Hadassai, the Council df Jewish Women, the Jewish Welfare Bureau, locally, and numerous national and overseas organisations have enthusiastically endorsed the Federation and agreed to accept tbe tentative allotments allocated to their institutions. That institution, if there be one, that will hold itself higher than the need of the community because of the short-sightednett of a few un-informed, misguided and selfish individuals, and will refuse to participate with and in the funds of the Federation should bear in mind that "kol hamon, k'kol Bbaddai, the -voice of the people is as the voice of God." They will find that the public will decline, and properly so, to continue its support. It will merit and will receive the condemnation of the public and perforce must soon drop from the scene of activity. The Jewish Floridian sincerely hopes that the unanimity of opinion and action regarding the Federation will not be d*turned. The spirit df co-operation shown everywhere must and should be continued in Miami. ^ hassee has formed a B'nai B'rith Lodge and is actively supporting the movement; that Brother Simonhoff will engage a permanent director for this work while he is in New York. B'NAI B'RITH BRIEFS The progress made by Sholem g. B'nai B'rith, during the year is one of justifiable pride to its membership. In all matters of '•wish interest, the Lodge has ptAyed a very important part. We have definitely established this Lodge as the most progressive in the State of Florida. Word has Just bean received that our Harry Simonhoff has completed a vary successful mission in connection with Student Union Activities at the University of Floras and at Tallahassee; that TallaThe question is often asked: "What will I gain, by membership in this order?" The answer is quite simple, "The opportunity to unite with a group of altruistic men and render service to our fellow men." The fraternal and social side of the order is important; but even more so, is the more serious side-that of ever being watchful to safeguard the fair name of our people. I feel that I am not violating a confidence when I state that many of the busiest business and professional men in this community are at all times ready to offer their valuable time and energies in meeting and attempting to solve the many problems that confront us. ma RESOLUTIONS At a special meeting of the Beard of Directors of Beth Jacob Congregation held Wednesday, October 26th, the following resolutions were adopted. Whereas it hss pleased Almighty God in the exercise of His Divine wisdom to remove from our midst the late Morris Abraham, one of the founders of this Congregation and ita treasurer at the time of his demise; And whereas the said Morris Abraham devoted himself whole hesrtedly to the work of Congregation Beth Jacob at all times and by his example and aid helped this Congregation erect the old, and present synagogue edifices; And whereas his loss to this Congregation is irreparable; Be it resolved, that this Congregation, its officers and directors, bowing their heads to the decree of Almighty God do hereby extend their heartfelt sympathies to the widow and sons of the deceased, and express the hope that his deeds and accomplishments will be their solace in their loss; And be it further resolved that a copy of these resolutions be forwarded to the family of the deceased and placed upon the permanent records of this Congregation. M. B. FRANK. President A. LOUIS MECHLOWITZ Secretary MOSES MESCHELOFF, Rabbi. mmrmw-mmm> This is your Council commentator bringing you the news of the month. Our membership drive, from October 24th through November 15th is in full swing under the able chairmanship of Mrs. Al Seiden in Miami and Mrs. Leo Kupper on Miami Beach. They are being assisted by a number of very able and prominent women who should surpass our goal of 75 new members. I am certain that once you are acquainted with the very excellent Council program you will be eager to join with us. Some criticism has been heard about the method of dues collection by unthinking citizens, which I feel is entirely unjustified. To carry on our work properly, we must have the necessary energy of finance. We do not have any paid collectors. Earnest members, realizing the importance of the order, have devoted their time and efforts to get results. We then are able to properly contribute to those worthy efforts that deserve our assistance and guidance. If these critics will only stop to consider the problem, they will readily see the unjustness of their remarks. Since I can happily repeat we have had a successful year, I feel that all honor is due to those men who satisfactorily and earnestly established the lodge on a sound financial basis. To them we owe our success. With the approach of the winter season, plans are being made for the resumption of our social activities. An outstanding event will soon be announced for November. Do you want to see our membership grow? If so, here is a very simple suggestion that will enable you to fulfill this wish. At the next meeting you attend, bring along some friend who is not a member—let him see the live-and potent force of the Lodge—you will be surprised at the response you will receive. My congratulations to Brother Stanley Myers and the earnest men and women who are co-operating with him and bringing into fruition, the much needed Federation. I am happy to inform you that our section has awarded three scholarships to the University of Miami. These awards were made to Martha Neeham, Evelyn Auslander and Robert Kaplan. Our Immigration office, under the able chairmanship of Mrs. Samuel Basker, is humming with activity; taking care of all immigrants that contact our office at 510 Congress Build : ng. This being our largest project, we are proud that we are able to accomplish the very fine work that is offered to us through this medium. I am anxious to bring to you the Council's action on the Palestine situation, the following message was sent by Mrs. Maufioe Goldman, president of the National Council of Jewish Women, to Secretary of State, Cordell Hull: "As a National Organisation of 50,000 women actively engaged hi work for adjustment of victims of European persecution, we are deeply concerned and alarmed by reports that the British Government is planning repudiation of the man" date for Palestine. In view of your historic humanitarian act in calling the Evian conference and in view of the fact that Palestine has been extremely important in offering refuge, we urge you to use every peaceful facility of your high office to help avert a decision which will inevitably bring increased disaster to innocent refugees." The next Cultural meeting will be held on the evening of November 2nd at the Lear School, 1500 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, at which time Dr. Ziebold will be the speaker. All members and their friends are invited. The National Council of Jewish Women is conducting a Poster Contest of which I am to act as chairman. The subject being "Foreign Born Americans." The contributions which the immigrant has made to American civilization; the purpose to instill in Americans, young and old, an awareness of the gifts which the foreign born have made to our culture: these to be the substance of the posters. which we can deeply drink and refresh ourselves during the troubled days. How important they then were—how equally important they are today. "Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty." "United we stand—divided we fall." Thank God that we realize these wise injunctions in Miami. Sincerely, ELRY STONE. The regular monthly meeting will be held Wednesday, November 2nd at 2:30 p. m., in Kaplan Hall. The revised by-laws will be read for the first time. A special peace program will be presented by Mrs. Harry Barnhard, peace chairman. All members are urged to attend and bring prospective members with them. I hope to see you at the meeting. CATHOLICS URGED T O PARTICIPATE Bridgeport, Conn., — The wish that Roman Catholics take more than an "unofficial" part in the work of the National Conference of Jews and Christians was expressed by the Rev. Dr. Herbert W. Searle, General Secretary of the Greater New York Federation of Churches, in an address before the annual convention of the Fairfield County Council of Churches and Religious Education her*. Dr. Searle also urged that Judaism present a more united opinion among its representatives. Dr. Searle discussed the work of the National Conference as part of a plea for the elimination of "parochialism" among Christians.

LATE FRIDAY EVENING SERVICES It was indeed a surprise to note such a tremendous attendance at the first service in the series of our late Friday evening services. We trust that all the members and friends will attend regularly to acquaint themselves with the religious ideals of our people and the chaotic conditions existing abroad. Wednesday, November 2nd, will commemorate the 21st anniversary of the issuance of the Balfour declaration granting the Jewish people the right to create and establish a home land in Palestine. In view of that occasion during the service this coming Friday evening at 8:15, Rabbi Shapiro will discuss the subject : Palestine's Quandary—Blaming Israel again!" Cantor I.ou ; s Hayman assisted by the Both David choir will chant the traditional liturgic melodies. A racial hour in the auditorium follows every service on Friday evening. A Sisterhood committee headed by Mrs. J. Engler is in charge. JUNIOR SERVICES The Junior Congregat'on has resumed its religious activities for the season. A very fine attendance of boys and girls responded to the first service held last Saturday morn'ng. These services begin at 10:3i) and end at 11:45. We urge parents to bring their children and to become vitally interested in the activities of the Junior Congregation. Immediately after the services the children assemble in the auditorium for the "Kiddush" served hy Mrs. Louis Harts who has worked assiduously for several yars to stimulate Interest in this Jnnor Congregation. Howard Schwartz. Harold Shapira and Stanley (layman will conduct the •*rices. "The Portion of Law" expounded and applied every Sabbath. SUNDAY SCHOOL Ha'ses at our Sunday School •* v been organised and work has ***n resumed for the year. Over 200 children have enrolled and it •M he necessary to stop registration in the future. We therefore %  eViae parents who have not envied their children, as yet, to P'ae do so immediately. ^ The first issue of the Beth David "Shofar" edited by Harold Shapiro, "oward Schwarts and Stanley Tin^ *as greeted with great enthu*m by the student body. This *Pw will be the weekly organ of PAOE SEVEN presse themselves with regard to our religious work are asked to send their expressions to the editors of the "Shofar." EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITY The teachers of the Beth David and all other institutions who are interested will meet every other Sunday from 12:00 to 12:30 to discuss "Pedagogical rules and problems" with Mr. Stanley C. Myers who will conduct the stutjy group. The first meeting takes place this coming Sunday immediately after Sunday School. Adults who are not teaching but who are interested are asked to be present as well. Rahh ; Max Shapiro will conduct an adult parent discussion group beginning Sunday morning, November 13th at 10:30 o'clock. The objective of this group will be to attain a proper understanding and appreciation of the ceremonies, laws, observances and culture of Jewish life. Those who are interested to meetwith Rabbi Shapiro please phone the office of the synagogue. Further details as to the construction of this group will be mentioned in a later issue. HEBREW SCHOOL Hebrew classes for the coming semester have already been organized and quite a few children of last year have not as yet registered. It is important that parents do so at once. We are asking you to bring your children in the afternoon from 3:00 to 6:00 o'clock and discuss the problem of transportation or otherwise with the principal. We are positive that a proper solution can be arrived at. We feel that it is the duty of every parent whose child attends | our religious institution to become affiliated with our Congregation. It is high time that we real're the necessity of organized Jewish life in our midst. There is no excuse at all unless it be poverty, to refuse to identify yourself with our Congregation. It is absolutely a mark of disloyalty and unheard of arrogance not to affiliate yourself when your child receives instructions at our institution. Please join immediately otherwise it is compulsory to pay a tuition charge of $10.00 per season per child attending our Sunday School and $3.00 per month for children attending our Hebrew School. cers of the University of Miami are pleased at this splendid contribution on the part of B'nai B'rith. JEWISH STUDENT WORK At the request of a committee representing the Jewish students at the University of Miami, Rabbi Shapiro lectured last Monday evening on the subject: "The Jewish College Student facing the probI lem of Anti-Semitism." An enthusiastic group discussed the problem at an open forum after the lecture with a determination to do their share toward the elimination of any such problem whenever confronting them. It is a step in the right direction and we trust that the students will continue such constructive cultural work.

PAGE SIX rm JEWI8H FLORIDIAJf Plain Talk Dear Mr. Segal: Why dent you writ* something en the subject of vocationa for Jewish children. I bare an adolc scent soa of my own, and what attain make of Mas—doctor, lawyer or panther It seems to me the matter of vocations is one of the most serious in our Jewish life —A. T. R. o o • My Dear Sir: My first impulse is to answer: Let your son he a plumber. The beneficent function of plumbers constantly evokes more and more of my admiration. When I draw hot wate rinstantaneoualy in the morr.injt. when I consider the sanitary disposal of sewage. I say to myself: "If you had been a plumber you would be a useful person. What are you now!" Yet I am aware that your son. If he became a lawyer, might turn out to be another Brandeis or Cardoso: or. if a doctor, he might be the rery one to discover a cure for cancer. My conscience would feel guilty of sin against humankind to thin* that I had caused a boy to become a plumber who. were he a doctor instead, would have cured cancer. Still I don't think that this thought need ever to be too heavy MI my conscience: for the chances •re that your son would become iu$t another lawyer or just another doctor, one of the too many Jewish doctors and lawyers. 1 can't get as angry as some people do about quotas that limit Ma number of Jewish students in some of the medical colleges. (I shall probably get hell for saying this. My protest is or.ly against inhuman people who would limit Jews simply because they are Jews. 1 believe that the quotas in the medical college* are based on sound economic realism rather than oa anti-Semitism. At least I hope so. for the sake of my faith in Christians.) Since Jewish doctors and Jewish lawyers must derend largely upon Jews for patronage there has to be a wider tribution of the few crumbs every time new supplies of Jewish doctors and lawyers issue from the colleges. Sound economy suggest* that, considering the limitaaa of the Jewish field, there uld be a sharp curtailment of the number of new Jewish doctors and lawyer*. I think that we ourselves f God is not approved among the big executives; at least, they seldom have jobs for those who confess being of the Jewish religion. The constricting walls become narrower and narrower for Jewish youth, but (their parents suggest) there are law and medicine to go to. In law or medicine, it is believed, a man can build himself: he doesn't have to depend on the rood will of Mr. Zilch who likes to say that some of his best friends are Jews, but; nor does he have to depend on the precarious issue of some small business in a world in which small business seems to ha blowing away like dust in the wind. So we have the pathos of Jewish ::h running away from walls that are closing in on him but rinding no escape in professional fields that become more barren as %  more and more contest for the harvest. 0 0 0 Mrs. Joseph Wohl recently arrived in this city after an extended visit in New York.

On the contrary, the Arabs absorbed all possible forms of learning and made them their own. They beeame the fervent disciples of the Syrian Christians and the pagan philosophers who had fled for refuge to distant Persia. From these masters the Arabs obtained a knowledge of Greek classics into their own tongue and added huge commentaries to them. The Arabs Bss|milated the learning and folklore of India and became a means for transmitting them to the western world. They wrote works on geofirnphv and history which are still invaluable records of the thought of their time, as well as that of preceding ages. One of their great teachers, Avicenna in Persio. composed a Canon which is to this day "considered a milestone in the advancement of Se'ence. Another, Averroes, living at the other end of their world in Spain, wrote books of philosophy which, together with tho=e of Maimonides, the eontemnorary Tew, chang-ed the whole history of western thought. CONTRIBUTIONS AND FAILURES OF ARAB TRADITION Wherever we turn in modern science we come upon vestiges of the Arabs' activity. The numerals which they brought from India to Europe are described as Arabic. One of th fundamental bran-hes of mathematics is called by an Arabic name, algebra. A whole series o* scientific terms, in current use,—alkali, alembic, alcohol, alnianac, and dozens of others, are of Arabic origin. The caliph Omar had burned the invaluable library at Alexandria. say : ng that if its books contained what was in the Koran they were sunerfluous, and if they conta'ned what was not in the Koran they were heretical. But he was the one notable exception to the rule. Most of his successors were grent matrons of learning, and served as the saviors of civilization. The Arabs achieved even more in commerce and industry than in 'earning". The bazaars of Bagdad, their capital, became as imnortant ; n their day, as the markets of New York and London in ours. There were good roads leadine from one end of the Mohammedan world to the other. There was considerable travel. There apart comparatively saf" shipping lines. There was a regular postal system. And there was wellorgsanized local and central government. These material achievements combined with other circumstances to brine the learning of the Arabs to the West and to effect the European renaissance. Curiously enough, having: performed this function for society, the Arab Emnire began to fade. The Arabs sank lower and lower, until today the vsitor in Fes or Damascus can hardly believe that seven centuries ago the ancestors of these backward people stood in the vanguard of world thought. The Arabs' inability to preserve their empire may, like that of the later Romans, be traced to their half-hearted acceptance of the Prophetic Tradition. The Arab adopted the belief in the one God; but he limited the doctrine of the dignity of man to believers; and he completely rejected Isaiah's principle of world-peace. The energy the Arab derived from this partial conversion to Scripture was sufficient to make him the fojpider and transmitter of a civiMtation; but was far too meagre to endow him with the rarer gift of conferring immortality on his creation. Bagdad became a second Rome, permeated and corrupted with the luxury, the lewdness, the eobenage, and the selfishness of the former mistress of the world. When the Mongols attacked the Arabic Empire they discovered that its huge body was, in fact, a lifeless corpse. The spirit had departed: the helpless giant could be stripped and robbed with impunity. finest of fancy groceries, domestic and imported appetizers o/_ every kind, imported and domestic dairy products featuring the well known.

The faith which Mohammed founded survived his Empire; some remnants of learning and poetry remained among the fragments of the caliphate; and to ths day the two hundred millions of Mohammedans still participate in world thought and civilization by virtue of the : r contact with the Scriptures. • (Professor Finkelstein will be pleased to reply either through this column or through personal correspondence to any questions bearing on the issues raised in the series of articles.
