Louis Shochet, editor and owner of The Jewish Floridian, died at a Miami hospital early Monday morning:, January 10th, 1939, after a brief illness. His sudden death came as a shock to the entire Jewish community. Mr. Shochet a former resident of Baltimore, and graduate of the I'r.iversity of Maryland, came to Miami in 1925 and established The Jewish Floridian in 1927. Under his guidance the newspaper became a power for good in Florida and served as a medium of conveying news of interest to all Jewish residents of the State. Time and again, as Editor Mr. Shochet took the lead in fighting the battle to uphold the name and protect the reputation of the Jewish community. Through the editorial colum n of the paper he spoke out when necessary to awaken and Miiisc the Jewish residents of Miami to assume their responsibilities as Jews and Americans. Fearlessly and courageously he openly fought for or against issues presented to the Jewish people, never seeking to conceal or camouflage his position, always choosing the side he believed to be right regardless of consequences to his personal welfare. As a citizen and individual Mr. Shochet participated in every worth-while movement and devoted himself since his arrival in Miami to all Jewish causes. He was a former president of Beth David Congregation, one of the founders and organizers of the Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation; a member of the Board of Directors of Beth Jacob Congregation; Secretary of the Greater Miami Jewish Cemetery Association; a member of the Board of Directors and Budget Committee of the Greater Miami Federation of Jewish Welfare Funds; a meniber of the Administrative Board of the local Zionist District; Chairman of the local and State Anti-Defamation Committee of B'nai B'rith; a member of the Young Men's Hebrew Association, and conductor of the Jewish hour for the past year over Station WKAT.

Told with Tears and Signed in Sorrow. H. M. DREVICH, MRS. IDA BUCKSTEIN, RABBI ABRAHAM A. KELLNER In the course of years humanity hardens to the passing on of its leaders and becomes accustomed to the call of death. Yet, despite the external hardness of man, the passing of one of its outstanding leaders leaves an unfilled vacancy in the very heart of the community. Such a person was J. Louis Shochet. But Mr. Shochet was more than a mere communal worker, he was a community spirit, a motivating factor in the building of the Miami Jewish community which we know today. Aside from the numerous affiliations, and his extreme interest in everything Jewish—was the record of actual accomplishments he achieved in each worthwhile endeavor. Anti Defamation of B'nai B'rith and Jewish Federation are but two of the many interests who will greatly feel his loss. It is with sincere sympathy and deep mourning that we mark his passing. Our community has indeed lost a guiding light. Our heartfelt condolences are extended to the bereaved family. BETH DAVID CONGREGATION M. J. Kopelowitz, President. Resolutions adopted by the respective organizations of our community upon the untimely death of our late and beloved J. Louis Shochet: FEDERATION DRIVE GOES "OVER THE TOP" The wildest dreams of the proponents of the Federation Drive were exceeded when the final report of the current drive was rendered at the Urmey Hotel on Wednesday noon, January 18th. Just as it was planned and prearranged, the Drive began o n the Sth of January and was officially closed on the 18th. Additional contributions will still be received and those who have not been reached as yet will be solicited. Tense excitement prevailed as the mounting figures were announced and a round of applause was enthusiastically continued as the surprising sum of $77,500.00 was made known. This sum is 15 percent over the goal set. The tragic plight of our Brethren over seas and the compelling need of our loral and national institutions will be assuaged by this splendid showing, which will allow for greater allocations. The tremendous success of the • Drive will also serve as an encouraging factor in urging on, other communities who will as well as to establish Miami as a model Jewish community. The workers and leaders of the Campaign come in for inestimable praise and a full list of the names will be published next week. A silent tribute was paid to the memory of J. Louis Shochet, whose dynamic energy and boundless enthusiasm was in no small way responsible for this unprecedented success. A Victory Ball will be held for the teams and workers on Wednesday night. February 1st on the roof of the Alcazar Hotel so that all may rejoice in a work well done.

Without warning, the skies suddenly darken, the heavens are overcast, the hopes of a lifetime, the pulsating and energetic dreams are summarily shattered and a closely knit family is broken and in spiritual ruins. Yet the deeper the night, the clearer is the silvery sheen of the stars of friendship and loyalty that reflect their faithful radiance against this darkness. J. Louis Shochet would have wished that the creation of his will and intellect, The Jewish Floridian should go on—even after its creator carries on no longer; hence several friends determined to publish this memorial edition, while his family grieves in inexpressible sorrow. Thus the Jewish Floridian continues and will do so, with the desire of the family that the starlight should show the way, where once the sun has shone .... with the entire Jewish community united in the same resolve. Moses dreamed of a Promised Land and beheld the same only from the Mountain Top. The dreams and plans of J. Louis Shochet, shall be carried on by his successors as he too caught but a glimpse of his Land of Promise, yet we must be content as the tapestry which he has woven, is composed of the very texture of his soul, the very fibre of his being, and we are further content that ours will be the privilege to translate into deeds the texture of his dreams.

May the Lord comfort them amidst the country today which can match the late speed of Fence Guard. His powerful legs churn up speed so fast that they almost singe the home stretch of a racing strip. Last year Fence Guard started his racing career on the Flagler oval and climbed to the top almost overnight. His greatest race that year was run in the Futurity Stake final when he battled it out with Rip A Rarin' 1938 triple Flagler champion, in what was probably the most thrilling race and finish of the year. Rip won the race on a photograph but not until he used up every ounce of his racing strength trying to stave off the home stretch drive of young Fence Guard. This greyhound bears close watching through the remainder of the 1939 meeting at West Flagler Kennel Club, especially when he runs races booked over the long 5-16th mile course. many mourners of Zion and Jerusalem: SCHEDULE OF EVENTS Friday evening, January 20th: Religious forum at 8:15 p. m.

Miami Jewry Mourns Loss of
Editor of Jewish Floridian
Sudden Death Shocks
Community
J. Louis Shochet, editor and
owner of The Jewish Floridian,
died at a Miami hospital early
Monday morning:, January 10th,
1939, after a brief illness. His
sudden death came as a shock to
the entire Jewish community.
Mr. Shochet a former resident
of Baltimore, and graduate of the
I'r.iversity of Maryland, came to
Miami in 1925 and established The
Jewish Floridian in 1927. Under
his guidance the newspaper be-
came a power for good in Florida
and served as a medium of con-
veying news of interest to all
Jewish residents of the State.
Time and again, as Editor Mr.
Shochet took the lead in fighting
the battle to uphold the name and
protect the reputation of the Jewish
community. Through the editor-
ial column of the paper he spoke
out when necessary to awaken and
. Miiisc the Jewish residents of
Miami to assume their responsibi-
lities as Jews and Americans.
Fearlessly and courageously he
openly fought for or against is-
sues presented to the Jewish peo-
ple, never seeking to conceal or
camouflage his position, always
choosing the side he believed to
be right regardless of consequenc-
es to his personal welfare.
As a citizen and individual Mr.
Shochet participated in every
worth-while movement and de-
voted himself since his arrival in
Miami to all Jewish causes. He
was a former president of Beth
David Congregation, one of the
founders and organizers of the
Miami Jewish Orthodox Congre-
gation; a member of the Board of
Directors of Beth Jacob Congre-
gation; Secretary of the Greater
Miami Jewish Cemetery Associa-
tion; a member of the Board of
Directors and Budget Committee
of the Greater Miami Federation
of Jewish Welfare Funds; a meni-
ber of the Administrative Board
of the local Zionist District;
Chairman of the local and State
Anti-Defamation Committee of
B'nai B'rith; a member of the
Young Men's Hebrew Association,
and conductor of the Jewish hour
for the past year over Station
WKAT.
Mr. Shochet leaves his wife.
Mrs. Ethel Shochet; a son, Fred
K. Shochet, who has been asso-
ciated with him in the publica-
tion of the Jewish Floridian; two
daughters, the Misses Ray and
Esther Shochet; five sisters, Mrs.
Fannie B. Kurland, Mrs. Deborah
Hartman, Mrs. I. Shavrick and
the Misses Rebecca and Sarah
Shochet, all of Baltimore, and a
brother, Jacob E. Shochet of New
Haven, Conn.
The body lay on view until 2:00
p. m., Tuesday at the Miami Jew-
ish Funeral Home when it was
removed to the Miami Jewish Or-
j thodox Congregation where a
[mourning throng of hundreds wept
fhile the Rabbis of the Miami
area conducted the funeral ser-

Funds, do add our words of sym-
pathy to Mrs. Shochet and her
family, and pray, that God will

most useful life, has erected in
the hearts of his fellow co-relig-
ionists, a monument that will for-
ever endure.

In the course of years humanity
hardens to the passing on of its
leaders and becomes accustomed
to the call of death.
Yet, despite the external hard-
ness of man, the passing of one
of its outstanding leaders leaves
an unfilled vacancy in the very
heart of the community.
Such a person was J. Louis
Shochet. But Mr. Shochet was
more than a mere communal
worker, he was a community spir-
it, a motivating factor in the
building of the Miami Jewish com-
munity which we know today.
Aside from the numerous af-
filiations, and his extreme interest
in everything Jewishwas the
record of actual accomplishments
he achieved in each worthwhile
endeavor. Anti Defamation of
B'nai B'rith and Jewish Federa-
tion are but two of the many in-
terests who will greatly feel his
loss.
It is with sincere sympathy and
deep mourning that we mark his
passing. Our community has in-
deed lost a guiding light. Our
heartfelt condolences are extend-
ed to the bereaved family.

Resolutions adopted by the re-
spective organizations of our com-
munity upon the untimely death
of our late and beloved J. Louis
Shochet:
FEDERATION
DRIVE GOES
"OVER THE TOP"
The wildest dreams of the pro-
ponents of the Federation Drive
were exceeded when the final re-
port of the current drive was ren-
dered at the Urmey Hotel on
Wednesday noon, January 18th.
Just as it was planned and pre-
arranged, the Drive began on the
Sth of January and was officially
closed on the 18th. Additional
contributions will still be received
and those who have not been
reached as yet will be solicited.
Tense excitement prevailed as
the mounting figures were an-
nounced and a round of applause
was enthusiastically continued as
the surprising sum of $77,500.00
was made known. This sum is
15 percent over the goal set. The
tragic plight of our Brethren over
seas and the compelling need of
our loral and national institutions
will be assuaged by this splendid
showing, which will allow for
greater allocations.
The tremendous success of the
Drive will also serve as an en-
couraging factor in urging on,
other communities who will as
well as to establish Miami as a
model Jewish community.
The workers and leaders of the
Campaign come in for inestimable
praise and a full list of the names
will be published next week.
A silent tribute was paid to the
memory of J. Louis Shochet,
whose dynamic energy and bound-
less enthusiasm was in no small
way responsible for this unprece-
dented success.
A Victory Ball will be held for
the teams and workers on Wed-
nesday night. February 1st on the
roof of the Alcazar Hotel so that
all may rejoice in a work well
done.

ECLIPSE AT MIDDAY
The vibrant and warming sun that was J. Louis Shochet
has set at midday. Without warning, the skies suddenly dark-
en, the heavens are overcast, the hopes of a lifetime, the pul-
sating and energetic dreams are summarily shattered and a
closely knit family is broken and in spiritual ruins.
Yet the deeper the night, the clearer is the silvery sheen of
the stars of friendship and loyalty that reflect their faithful
radiance against this darkness.
J. Louis Shochet would have wished that the creation of
his will and intellect, The Jewish Floridian should go oneven
after its creator carries on no longer; hence several friends de-
termined to publish this memorial edition, while his family
grieves in inexpressible sorrow. Thus the Jewish Floridian
continues and will do so, with the desire of the family that the
starlight should show the way, where once the sun has shone
.... with the entire Jewish community united in the same
resolve.
Moses dreamed of a Promised Land and beheld the same
only from the Mountain Top.
The dreams and plans of J.
Louis Shochet, shall be carried
on by his successors as he too
caught but a glimpse of his
Land of Promise, yet we must
be content as the tapestry
which he has woven, is com-
posed of the very texture of
his soul, the very fibre of his
being, and we are further con-
tent that ours will be the priv-
ilege to translate into deeds
the texture of his dreams.
Life holds a thousand dreams
And we choose but one
The one, shining with radiant
gleams
When our day is done.

The activities and functions of
our Congregation suffered cancell-
ment during this past week Pray-
ers alone were permitted, but alas
some of them came too late, yet
we pray ever more fervently that
the soul of our lote and revered
friend, Yehuda Leib Ben Reb Av-
rohom Shmuel Shochet be bound
up in the eternal bond of lifee and
that hfs grieving loved ones who
remain in our midst should find
consolation in the loyal friendship
and devotion shown to them in
thei hour .of lamentation. May
the Lord comfort them amidst the
country today which can match
the late speed of Fence Guard.
His powerful legs churn up speed
so fast that they almost singe
the home stretch of a racing strip.
Last year Fence Guard started
his racing career on the Flagler
oval and climbed to the top al-
most overnight. His greatest race
that year was run in the Futurity
Stake final when he battled it out
with Rip A Rarin' 1938 triple
Flagler champion, in what was
probably the most thrilling race
and finish of the year.
Rip won the race on a photo-
graph but not until he used up
every ounce of his racing strength
trying to stave off the home
stretch drive of young Fence
Guard.
This greyhound bears close
watching through the remainder
of the 1939 meeting at West
Flagler Kennel Club, especially
when he runs races booked over
the long 5-16th mile course.

With grief that knows no words
we add our deepest feelings of

has lost an invaluable link in its

assistance having aided us so ma-
terially. We are but one organi-

his ability, hard work and genius.
God in His wisdom hath taken a
friend from our midst and God we
pray shall perpetuate his memory
so that we may go on to the
heights he desired for us .

LATE FRIDAY EVENING
SERVICES

JSevicettwill be conducted by
bbi. Max SMapiro at Jhe Beth
David Synagogue Friday evening
at 8:15 p. m. Cantor Louis Hay-
man, assisted by the choir will
chant the liturgic melodies.
Rabbi Shapiro has just return-
ed from the United Palestine Ap-
peal Convention, held at Washing-
ton, D. C, where he served as
delegate and as a member of the
Resolutions Committee. He will
report during the services on the
subject: "KeynoteUnity in Is-
rael."
The remarkable attendance and
performance of the members of
Young Judea who conducted the
services last Friday evening is
indicative of the profundity of the
Biblical quotation: "With Our
Youth Shall We go Forward." The
masterful presentation of a Yid-
dish address by Harold Shapiro,
president of Young Judea, inspir-
ed the worshippers immensely. It
is hoped that throughout the win-
ter season more young men and
RESOLUTION
women will be heard from our pul-
pit expressing great faith in the
future of our peeople.
SABBATH SERVICE
The largest attendance of boys
and girls at our Junior services
took place last Saturday morn-
ing. These services are conduct-
ed every Sabbath at 10:30 a. m.
Parents are urged to come with
their children and participate.
