RECOGNITION
Monday night at a meeting of
the Greater Miami Jewish Ceme-
tery Association, composed of rep-
resentatives of Beth Jacob Con-
gregation, Beth David Congrega-
tion, the Miami Jewish Orthodox
Congregation and the Sisterhood
of Chesed Shel Ernes, in recogni-
tion of the fine purposes of the
Greater Miami Federation of Jew-
ish Welfare Funds unanimously
voted to provide two percent of
the total budget of the Federation,
and appropriated the sum of thir-
teen hundred and three dollars
which was ordered paid to the
Federation immediately.
With the announcement from
New York that beginning Novem-
ber 14th, Leonard Rose, twenty-
year-old cello virtuoso, son of Mr.
and Mrs. Harry Rose of this city
will be a featured artist of the
National Broadcasting Company's
Symphony Orchestra under the di-
rection of the famous Arturo Tos-
canini, comes the culmination of
fond hopes realized.
About ten years ago, Leonard
came to Miami with his parents
from Baltimore and soon began to
display an unusual ability and tal-
ent with the cello. His father who
was then a member of the Univer-
sity of Miami Symphony Orches-
tra placed him under the tutelage
of Walter Grossman who trained
the boy for five years. He then
contested for the four year schol-
arship at the Curtis Institute for
Music in Philadelphia and was
awarded this ten thousand dollar
scholarship.
Under the famous Felix Sal-
mond, Leonard soon became out-
standing and was soloist with
prominent musical organizations.
Last May he graduated from the
Curtis Institute of Music with un-
usually high honors and his con-
tract with the National Broadcast-
ing Company followed.
Leonard will also be a member
of the faculty of the Chatzinoff
Institute in New York and will be
an instructor in cello there. He
will make his home in New York
City.

again present another in its
series of weekly broadcasts
this coming Sunday morn-
ing over Station WKAT
(1600 k. c.) at 9:00 o'clock.

news, comments and music.
C EF RABB
URGES HELP
Jerusalem, (WNS, Palcor Agen-
cy)A summons to the Jews of
the world to give generously to
Palestine upbuilding was sounded
by Chief Rabbi Isaac Herzog in a
proclamation to the Jews of the
world inaugurating the 1939 cam-
paign of the Keren Hayesod (Pal-
estine Foundation Fund.)
"Not only self-defense but the
salvation of an entire people" is
bound up with the necessity of
immediate large-scale funds, the
spiritual leader emphasized. The
1939 campaign of the Keren Hay-
esod has as its slogan: "Kefer
Haam" (Redemption of the Peo-
ple.)
Appealing to the Diaspora on
its behalf, with "a fervent hope
that it will support the Yishuv,
which is devoting its heart and
soul to world Jewry and to the
future," Chief Rabbi Herzog ad-
ded: "Our most fervent desire has
always been for peaceful rela-
tions with our Arab neighbors."
Saying that "world peace repre-
sents Israel's ideal, as expressed
by our prophets," the Chief Rabbi
declared that "our sons are build-
ing the land with one hand and
holding a weapon in the other.
They are constructing roads and
strongholds for the protection of
the lives and bases of the house
of Israel in the land of our hopes.
They are devoting their lives as
emissaries for the salvation of the
entire people, not only for self-
defense, because the soul of the
whole people permeates the up-
building of the land. A sacred
duty reposes on every* Jew in this
great and awful moment in order
to buttress the efforts of the Yis-
huv. Wherever they be, they
must defend the Yishuv, for this
is the sole haven of refuge through
out the world remaining for our
weary, harried brethren."
Y. M. 1.1 GETS
PINE SUPPORT
In its efforts to make the sev-
enth annual dance of the Y. a fine
moral and financial success the
arrangements committee headed
by Mr. E. Albert Pallot has been
receiving whole-hearted coopera-
tion of leaders in the community
and from many organizations in
this area.
"It has been an unusual source
of pleasure to me and my commit-
tee," said Mr. Pallot in an inter-
view with a representative of the
Jewish Floridian, "to find the un-
usually fine spirit of helpfulness
we are receiving from other or-
ganizations in this area. Jews and
non-Jews alike are rallying to our
support in achieving our goal of
a Jewish Community Center. The
general public will be the benefi-
ciaries in the final analysis, for it
is for the youth that we are doing
all this work. With the entry of
the Y. into the Federation of Jew-
ish Welfare Funds we will con-
tinue our work of making the Mi-
ami community one of the out-
standing ones in the entire coun-
try. We will appreciate every as-
sistance whether it be for our
journal or the purchase of tickets
for this seventh annual dance
which will be held at the Miami
Civic Center on Sunday night, De-
cember 18th."
An unusually fine program of
entertainment will be provided in
addition to continuous dancing to
music provided by two orchestras.

London, Nov. 9Great Britain
Wednesday night sought peace for
revolt-ridden Palestine through a
plan to gather Arab and Jewish
leaders around a London confer-
ence table seeking compromise of
their bitter dispute over Jewish
immigration to the Holy Land.
The British government discard-
ed as unworkable a proposal to
solve the problem by setting up
Arab and Jewish states.
Disturbed by general Arab un-
rest in the Near East and the
growing Jewish refugee problem
in Europe, Britain warned it
would impose its own solution un-
less the Arabs and Jews find com-
mon ground soon for burying iheir
differences.
Britain's position was outlined
in a statement of policy issued
along with the royal commission's
report on Palestine. The commis-
sion, headed by Sir John Woodhead
found impracticable a plan to di-
vide Palestine into separate Arab
and Jewish states and Jerusalem
and Nazareth remaining undeq
British mandate along with a strip]
to the coast.

ALL HUMANITY FEELS IT
(The Jacksonville Journal)
The Jewish people of Jacksonville, and the rest of the
nation for that, matter, are making a grave mistake during
this time of crisis for their co-religionists in foreign lands,
in not seeking help from Gentiles.
The Jewish people here are generous contributors to
every charitable solicitationthe Community Chest, Red
Cross, in fact to every worthwhile cause. Their own suf-
fering for hundreds of years makes them sympathetic to-
ward any appeal for the unfortunate.
But they are confining their grief for the oppressed
across the sea to their own ranks. They are quietly solic-
iting funds among themselves and attempting to bear a tre-
mendous burden alone. Every true Christian who could
will contribute to their cause of overseas relief if given
the opportunity.
This has been typical of the Jewish people. They have
given generously to every cause yet are inclined to bear
their own burdens alons.
The sympathy of the decent inhabitants of this world
are with them at this time and if given the opportunity to
contribute, many of them would willingly help in this
emergency.
Last week's Time magazine told of Jews, for example,
living in the no-man's land between the Sudeten area just
taken over by Germany and Czechoslovakia, forced from
pie everywhere:
their homes and sleeping in roadside ditches. Occasionally
food is thrown to them as one would to a dog, by sympa-
thetic passersby, who risk both Nazi and Czechoslovakian
ire (the Czechs fear the Germans if they treat the Jews
decently.) Is there anyone who will not condemn such in-
humanity? The following letter from a Journal subscriber
was the impetus for this reaction of The Journal and it
probably contain.' a valuable suggestion for the Jewish peo-
Editor The Jacksonville Journal:
Reading of the renewed expulsion of Jews from Ger-
many and thinking of the hardships that will be their lot
as a result of thu extreme action, I am writing as a Gentile
to request additional and generous support of the drive by
the Joint Distribution Committee and of the American
Jewish Congress for funds to allay the sufferings and the
plight of these unfortunate people caught as they are in
the unrelenting grasp of one of the world's most terrible
anti-Semitic movements. <4*
Permit me through the columns of your notable paper
to voice this humble appeal for generous support by both
Jew and non-Jew and by both Gentiles and Christians of
whatever race or creed to rally to the support of the noble
efforts already made to bring relief and succor to the hun-
dreds of thousands of Jewa who find themselves victims of
i cruel and reactionary racial policy strange to behold in
this modern age! n.
The need is imperative with the number of refugees
increasing daily with no telling what the next week or month
n*y bring, so I ask again in closing: Give!

THE MIDDLE MAN
BRIEFS
Attended by an unusually large
and attentive crowd the la.-t meet-
ing was really inspiring. Presid-
ed over by our unperturbed and
genial Elry Stone, the meeting
went over with a bang.
Harry outshone himself. Bach-
elor Simonhoff, in his "not tzoo
froom, but not tzufiel goy:sh" took
the fancy of the crowd. His an-
alysis of Jewish life and possibil-
ities in Tallahassee was truly indi-
cative of a keen and observant
mind. We predict much success
for the Student Union in Florida.
Baron de Hirsch Meyer got off
to a flying start and his pictuii-
zation of the Atlanta Joint Di-
tribution Conference awoke in the
listeners a realization of what
Jewry must do today to aid their
stricken brethren. His reference
to the Greater Miami Jewish Cem-
etery Association initial gift of
the 1939 campaign brought a rous-
ing cheer from all.
The report of the Anti-Defama-
tion Committee got a fine hand,
first when the cooperation of the
local school authorities wes told
and twice more when the battle
with the Hamburg-American line
was described, and the replies
from the local and national offi-
cials of a famous railway line read.
"Lou" Shochet was indeed proud of
the result of this preliminary bat-
tle and he had a right to be.
Others of the B'nai B'rith mem-
bers who aided felt just as happy.
Let me tell you that something
sensational will break soon. You'll
hear of this in next weed's issue,
we hope.

Fascism is not only the enemy
of learning and freedom, but the
deadliest foe of world peace and
world-organizations. It is no ac-
cident that the fascist countries
have strained every effort to wreck
the League of Nations; that they
have eschewed international con-
ferences; that they have set up
autarchial systems of economy
which discourage buying and tell-
ing across their borders. It is an
essential element in the Fascist
program to restore the world to
barbarism. And barbarism implies,
among other evils, disorganiza-
tion, the law of the jungle, where
each man's hand is against his
neighbor.
And here again, the forces of
fusion find themselves opposed by
the Jewish passion for world peace
and order. Three centuries before
Plato and Aristotle wfrote thefc-
works on politics, the Judaite pro-
phet Isiah transcended the broad
est visions of these later philoso-
phers in his vision of a Messianic
era of universal peace. Long be-
fore any Hellenic thnker had re-
jected the traditional distinction
between Greek and barbarian.
Amos had warned the Israelites
that they were before God, '"like
the children of the Ethiopians."
And contrary to general opinion,
the Jew has not onlv oreached or-
derly government, he has practic-
ed it. History has few parallels
to the loyalty which the Judaites
showed the government led by the
House of David. Not only did
David's descendents succeed each
other on the Judaite throne for
more than four hundred years, but
many centuries later his scions
were regarded as the "Heads of
the Exile" in Persia and Babylonia
Even more astonishing than this
loyalty of the Jew to the Davidic
dynasty has been his almost singu-
lar ability to create a system of
orderly public and communal life,
without the usual forms of govern-
mental or even ecclesiastical or-
ganization. During the Second
Commonwealth the Jews all over
the world sent their half-shekels
before each Passover to support
the Temple. The sum contributed
by each individual was small,
about fifty cents. Yet enough was
collected to provide for the daily
sacrifices in the Temple and to
leave a surplus at the end of each
year. The Roman government,
surprised by this uncanny ability
of the Jew to collect his tax with-
out recourse to any compulsion
and perhaps jealous of itrefused
to abolish payment after the Tem-
ple was destroyed. With its usual
instinct for business, the Empire
appropriated the tax itself.
SYSTEM OF AUTHORITY IN
JUDAISM
Strangest of all was the manner
in which the Jew created a sys-
tem of religious authority for him-
self in the disorganization of the
Middle Ages. While Christendom
was the scene of bitter conflicts
between the Bishop of Rome and
his fellow bishops as well as the
mediaeval barons and kings, the
heads of the Jewish academies in
Babylonia and Palestine encounter-
ed no d'fficulty in winning univer-
sal recognition as the guides of
the whole Jews in every phase of
their religious life. They received
questions from communities in
Spain, France, Italy, the Rhine
country, England and North Afri-
ca. Everywhere people turned to
them quite voluntarily and without
the slightest effort at compulsion.
And yet there was no Jewish world
organization corresponding to that
of the Church; there never was a
Jewish ecumenical congress or sy-
nod; there was no Jewish parlia-
ment, no Jewish constitution, no
Jewish system of government.
Yet, singularly enough, there
were central Jewish authorities!
PAGE FIVE
The decisions of Jehudai Gaon or
Saadia Gaon in Sura, or Hai Gaon
or Sherira Gaon in Pumbeditha,
or Rabbenu Nissim in Kairowan,
or Rabbenu Gershom in Mayence,
or Rashi m Troyes, or Moses Mai-
monides in Cairo were binding on
all Jews who were in contact with
them. To this day the prohibition
of plural marriage among Jews
rests on an ordinance established
by Rabbenu Gershom. The phylac-
terries used by Jews in their pray-
ers are arranged in accordance
with prescription of Rashi. Jews
abstain from drink'ng milk six
hours after they have eaten meat
in accordance with a decision of
Maimonides.
As the famous Levi Yitzhak of
Berdischew is said once to have re-
marked, "No government, no mat-
ter how strong and efficient, has
ever proven itself as capable of
suppressing illegal traffic as did
the Mediaeval Synagogue for in-
stance in banning the use of leav-
en bread during Passover." Thru
their disciplined lives, as well as
through their willing martyrdom.

ALL HUMANITY FEELS IT (The Jacksonville Journal) The Jewish people of Jacksonville, and the rest of the nation for that, matter, are making a grave mistake during this time of crisis for their co-religionists in foreign lands, in not seeking help from Gentiles. The Jewish people here are generous contributors to every charitable solicitation—the Community Chest, Red Cross, in fact to every worthwhile cause. Their own suffering for hundreds of years makes them sympathetic toward any appeal for the unfortunate. But they are confining their grief for the oppressed across the sea to their own ranks. They are quietly soliciting funds among themselves and attempting to bear a tremendous burden alone. Every true Christian who could will contribute to their cause of overseas relief if given the opportunity. This has been typical of the Jewish people. They have given generously to every cause yet are inclined to bear their own burdens alons. The sympathy of the decent inhabitants of this world are with them at this time and if given the opportunity to contribute, many of them would willingly help in this emergency. Last week's Time magazine told of Jews, for example, living in the no-man's land between the Sudeten area just taken over by Germany and Czechoslovakia, forced from pie everywhere: their homes and sleeping in roadside ditches. Occasionally food is thrown to them as one would to a dog, by sympathetic passersby, who risk both Nazi and Czechoslovakian ire (the Czechs fear the Germans if they treat the Jews decently.) Is there anyone who will not condemn such inhumanity? The following letter from a Journal subscriber was the impetus for this reaction of The Journal and it probably contain.' a valuable suggestion for the Jewish peoEditor The Jacksonville Journal: Reading of the renewed expulsion of Jews from Germany and thinking of the hardships that will be their lot as a result of thu extreme action, I am writing as a Gentile to request additional and generous support of the drive by the Joint Distribution Committee and of the American Jewish Congress for funds to allay the sufferings and the plight of these unfortunate people caught as they are in the unrelenting grasp of one of the world's most terrible anti-Semitic movements. <4* Permit me through the columns of your notable paper to voice this humble appeal for generous support by both Jew and non-Jew and by both Gentiles and Christians of whatever race or creed to rally to the support of the noble efforts already made to bring relief and succor to the hundreds of thousands of Jewa who find themselves victims of i cruel and reactionary racial policy strange to behold in this modern age! n The need is imperative with the number of refugees increasing daily with no telling what the next week or month n *y bring, so I ask again in closing: Give! V WESLEY FOSTER TAYLOR. B'NAI B'RITH THE MIDDLE MAN BRIEFS Attended by an unusually large and attentive crowd the la.-t meeting was really inspiring. Presided over by our unperturbed and genial Elry Stone, the meeting went over with a bang. Harry outshone himself. Bachelor Simonhoff, in his "not tzoo froom, but not tzufiel goy : sh" took the fancy of the crowd. His analysis of Jewish life and possibilities in Tallahassee was truly indicative of a keen and observant mind. We predict much success for the Student Union in Florida. Baron de Hirsch Meyer got off to a flying start and his pictuiization of the Atlanta Joint Ditribution Conference awoke in the listeners a realization of what Jewry must do today to aid their stricken brethren. His reference to the Greater Miami Jewish Cemetery Association initial gift of the 1939 campaign brought a rousing cheer from all. The report of the Anti-Defamation Committee got a fine hand, first when the cooperation of the local school authorities wes told and twice more when the battle with the Hamburg-American line was described, and the replies from the local and national officials of a famous railway line read. "Lou" Shochet was indeed proud of the result of this preliminary battle and he had a right to be. Others of the B'nai B'rith members who aided felt just as happy. Let me tell you that something sensational will break soon. You'll hear of this in next weed's issue, we hope. TAMPA NOTES The Misses Hilda and Dorothy Golden, of Atlanta, Ga., recently arrived in Tampa to spend a few weeks with their aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mrs. I. K. Lubetzky. Mr. and Mrs. A. Mensh, of Fellsmere, Florida, spent the week-end with the parents of Mrs. Mensh, Mr. and Mrs. H. Peckett, of this city.

Fascism is not only the enemy of learning and freedom, but the deadliest foe of world peace and world-organizations. It is no accident that the fascist countries have strained every effort to wreck the League of Nations; that they have eschewed international conferences; that they have set up autarchial systems of economy which discourage buying and telling across their borders. It is an essential element in the Fascist program to restore the world to barbarism. And barbarism implies, among other evils, disorganization, the law of the jungle, where each man's hand is against his neighbor. And here again, the forces of fusion find themselves opposed by the Jewish passion for world peace and order. Three centuries before Plato and Aristotle wfrote thefcworks on politics, the Judaite prophet Isiah transcended the broad est visions of these later philosophers in his vision of a Messianic era of universal peace. Long before any Hellenic thnker had rejected the traditional distinction between Greek and barbarian. Amos had warned the Israelites that they were before God, '"like the children of the Ethiopians." And contrary to general opinion, the Jew has not onlv oreached orderly government, he has practiced it. History has few parallels to the loyalty which the Judaites showed the government led by the House of David. Not only did David's descendents succeed each other on the Judaite throne for more than four hundred years, but many centuries later his scions were regarded as the "Heads of the Exile" in Persia and Babylonia Even more astonishing than this loyalty of the Jew to the Davidic dynasty has been his almost singular ability to create a system of orderly public and communal life, without the usual forms of governmental or even ecclesiastical organization. During the Second Commonwealth the Jews all over the world sent their half-shekels before each Passover to support the Temple. The sum contributed by each individual was small, about fifty cents. Yet enough was collected to provide for the daily sacrifices in the Temple and to leave a surplus at the end of each year. The Roman government, surprised by this uncanny ability of the Jew to collect his tax without recourse to any compulsion— and perhaps jealous of it—refused to abolish payment after the Temple was destroyed. With its usual instinct for business, the Empire appropriated the tax itself. SYSTEM OF AUTHORITY IN JUDAISM Strangest of all was the manner in which the Jew created a system of religious authority for himself in the disorganization of the Middle Ages. While Christendom was the scene of bitter conflicts between the Bishop of Rome and his fellow bishops as well as the mediaeval barons and kings, the heads of the Jewish academies in Babylonia and Palestine encountered no d'fficulty in winning universal recognition as the guides of the whole Jews in every phase of their religious life. They received questions from communities in Spain, France, Italy, the Rhine country, England and North Africa. Everywhere people turned to them quite voluntarily and without the slightest effort at compulsion. And yet there was no Jewish world organization corresponding to that of the Church; there never was a Jewish ecumenical congress or synod; there was no Jewish parliament, no Jewish constitution, no Jewish system of government. Yet, singularly enough, there were central Jewish authorities! PAGE FIVE The decisions of Jehudai Gaon or Saadia Gaon in Sura, or Hai Gaon or Sherira Gaon in Pumbeditha, or Rabbenu Nissim in Kairowan, or Rabbenu Gershom in Mayence, or Rashi m Troyes, or Moses Maimonides in Cairo were binding on all Jews who were in contact with them. To this day the prohibition of plural marriage among Jews rests on an ordinance established by Rabbenu Gershom. The phylacterries used by Jews in their prayers are arranged in accordance with prescription of Rashi. Jews abstain from drink'ng milk six hours after they have eaten meat in accordance with a decision of Maimonides. As the famous Levi Yitzhak of Berdischew is said once to have remarked, "No government, no matter how strong and efficient, has ever proven itself as capable of suppressing illegal traffic as did the Mediaeval Synagogue for instance in banning the use of leaven bread during Passover." Thru their disciplined lives, as well as through their willing martyrdom. AlHC0WV)IT/0iVfD + KOSHER ZION SAUSAGE CO. INC. 37th St. and Normal Ave. CHICAGO, ILL.

About ten years ago, Leonard came to Miami with his parents from Baltimore and soon began to display an unusual ability and talent with the cello. His father who was then a member of the University of Miami Symphony Orchestra placed him under the tutelage of Walter Grossman who trained the boy for five years. He then contested for the four year scholarship at the Curtis Institute for Music in Philadelphia and was awarded this ten thousand dollar scholarship. Under the famous Felix Salmond, Leonard soon became outstanding and was soloist with prominent musical organizations. Last May he graduated from the Curtis Institute of Music with unusually high honors and his contract with the National Broadcasting Company followed. Leonard will also be a member of the faculty of the Chatzinoff Institute in New York and will be an instructor in cello there. He will make his home in New York City.

It's chock full of interestnews, comments and music. C EF RABB URGES HELP Jerusalem, (WNS, Palcor Agency)—A summons to the Jews of the world to give generously to Palestine upbuilding was sounded by Chief Rabbi Isaac Herzog in a proclamation to the Jews of the world inaugurating the 1939 campaign of the Keren Hayesod (Palestine Foundation Fund.) "Not only self-defense but the salvation of an entire people" is bound up with the necessity of immediate large-scale funds, the spiritual leader emphasized. The 1939 campaign of the Keren Hayesod has as its slogan: "Kefer Haam" (Redemption of the People.) Appealing to the Diaspora on its behalf, with "a fervent hope that it will support the Yishuv, which is devoting its heart and soul to world Jewry and to the future," Chief Rabbi Herzog added: "Our most fervent desire has always been for peaceful relations with our Arab neighbors." Saying that "world peace represents Israel's ideal, as expressed by our prophets," the Chief Rabbi declared that "our sons are building the land with one hand and holding a weapon in the other. They are constructing roads and strongholds for the protection of the lives and bases of the house of Israel in the land of our hopes. They are devoting their lives as emissaries for the salvation of the entire people, not only for selfdefense, because the soul of the whole people permeates the upbuilding of the land. A sacred duty reposes on every* Jew in this great and awful moment in order to buttress the efforts of the Yishuv. Wherever they be, they must defend the Yishuv, for this is the sole haven of refuge through out the world remaining for our weary, harried brethren." Y. M. 1.1 GETS PINE SUPPORT In its efforts to make the seventh annual dance of the Y. a fine moral and financial success the arrangements committee headed by Mr. E. Albert Pallot has been receiving whole-hearted cooperation of leaders in the community and from many organizations in this area. "It has been an unusual source of pleasure to me and my committee," said Mr. Pallot in an interview with a representative of the Jewish Floridian, "to find the unusually fine spirit of helpfulness we are receiving from other organizations in this area. Jews and non-Jews alike are rallying to our support in achieving our goal of a Jewish Community Center. The general public will be the beneficiaries in the final analysis, for it is for the youth that we are doing all this work. With the entry of the Y. into the Federation of Jewish Welfare Funds we will continue our work of making the Miami community one of the outstanding ones in the entire country. We will appreciate every assistance whether it be for our journal or the purchase of tickets for this seventh annual dance which will be held at the Miami Civic Center on Sunday night, December 18th." An unusually fine program of entertainment will be provided in addition to continuous dancing to music provided by two orchestras.

London, Nov. 9—Great Britain Wednesday night sought peace for revolt-ridden Palestine through a plan to gather Arab and Jewish leaders around a London conference table seeking compromise of their bitter dispute over Jewish immigration to the Holy Land. The British government discarded as unworkable a proposal to solve the problem by setting up Arab and Jewish states. Disturbed by general Arab unrest in the Near East and the growing Jewish refugee problem in Europe, Britain warned it would impose its own solution unless the Arabs and Jews find common ground soon for burying iheir differences. Britain's position was outlined in a statement of policy issued along with the royal commission's report on Palestine. The commission, headed by Sir John Woodhead found impracticable a plan to divide Palestine into separate Arab and Jewish states and Jerusalem and Nazareth remaining undeq British mandate along with a strip] to the coast.
