(WNS>--Usually.reliable sources rneport that there hts bee n an unoBfr'ial postponement \io April 1 of St* March 2 deadlm* for expulsion < authorities he*e, there is no indication that the Gin ••rnment will Un up in as threat%  enwd action to enforce the decree. Reports from the French border! that liuivdreds of Jews are being forced from Italy at bayonet point are not authoritative since no official information is avertable There was no comment in the Italian press as me deadline wa reached and passed and it was reliably disclosed that there will be no general roundup of Jews at this time for deportation under last Octvfcer's expulsion decree. Refugee committees in all large Italian cities carried on as usualreceiving hundreds of foreign Jews % eeking aid and information. Appeals for prolongation of ptay and for definite information on the ttatus of foreign Jews were received at official offices in increasing volume. Hundreds of Jewish foreigners who had arranged to emigrate hut remained to the !ast hoping that the time limit would be extended left at the eleventh hour. Thousands subject to the decree who were unable to comply remained infear of arrest. Those w-ho can produce satisfactory reasons for not being able to comply with the expulsion edict ••'.ill be granted additional extension beyond the new deadline, un"fficially set for April 1. Evidence f Intention to emigrate within a "reasonable" time will be a cepted among such reasons, it was -tat I'd. Up to now. however, only a -mall number of cases have, been reported in whith extensions of as much it six mimths hatte been granted. Of Hoe 10000 foreign Jews reportedry in Italy when the edict was issued last Tall, about 5,000 were aancesftil in obtaining visas to other iimiutries before expira tion of the time limit. The major ity of thr emigrants went to Chile, the UniU-d 'States, Trance. Palestine and England. A few hundred were allowed fr> return to the'ii native countries. Poland, Hungary and Rumania, Vtnle sorie found temporary r efu ge in South America, the port of Tangiors .and in the near and far East. Tortfgn Jew* remaining in Italy ar*not allowed to work and more than half are dependent on refugee committees for sustenanceThe situation of foreign Jews remaining in Italy has reached the critical stage and they are subject to any action that may be taken by the central or local authorities. Strictly Confidential Paiis. (WNS)—Contrary to Paris reports that 0,000 of. the Jews expelled from Italy were in the hills trying to cross the Italian border into France at Nice, the Jewish Relief Committee there stated that only several hundcvi'd were in the Area. The Nice Committee was told by telephone to Rome that Italian officials know "othing of the situation at the French border. The 400 refugees at Nice included a large number of women arid children. Many of them had been w.uinded by the bayonets of Italian soldiers, according to inform-i•ion from the relief committee. They were well treated by the local Dolice who showed a willingness to to cooperate in legalizing their stay. Funds t.> aid the refugees were rushed to Nice by the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee's Paris office. Britain Adamant on Plan For Independent State *v %  >* % %  > London. (WNS, Palcor Agency) — Pleas of members of all British parties and adamant opposition of the Jewish delegation, which has ategorically rejected the Government proposals and threatened non co-operation if they were adopted, apparently went unheeded as the British Cabinet decided at a meet ^ng that it was unable in any way .o modify, the proposals, which envision an Independent State of Palestine in five years,' according | to a report in the Daily Telegraph. The plan, according to which [Jewish immigrants into Palestine would be restricted to ten thousand Unnually during the next five I years pending the creation of the [Palestine Independent State, also [contains clauses restricting the I sale of land to Jews; the exact [terms of this latter provision are [to be arranged through Arab-Jewi-British conferences in the near future. This is in essence the same plan that was submitted privately to the Jewish and Arab delegations two and a half weeks ago, and which caused the Jews to break off all formal negotiations on the ground that any such proposal, which necessarily implies a minority status for the Jews, could not be used |as a basis even for discussion. The terms of the proposal are not expected to be accepted without a struggle by the Arabs eithetf for though it promises them their coveted Independent State with an Arab majority, it denies two of their cardinal demands—complete stoppage of immigration and total ban on land sales to JewsThe government is, however, believed to be determined to enforce, its policy whatever the objection of Palestine's population. PALESTINE PAVILION NEWS Unlww the Jewish Palestine Pavilion gets $90,000* in the next eight weelrs there won't be any such Pavilion at the New York World's Fair.

It Shall Come to Pass Florida Jewry,> this week, witnesses a unique celebrationOnce again, Miami, at the southernmost part of the country, far away from the great centers of Jewish culture, education, and activity, finds itself in the spotlight. Beth David, the Pioneer Congregation, organized in 1912, when Miami was still in its infancy, after years of struggle, filled with what seemed unsur. mountable obstacles, weathered not only its storms, but has emerged triumphant, and now, on Sunday, March 19th, will celeI brate its glorious and unforgettable occasion of '' The Redemption and Burning of its Mortgage.'' Religion has become an integral part in the lives of American Jewry, and in Miami, its religious organizations have al[ ways played a leading part. To Beth David, we respectfully dedicate the following prayer: And it shall come to pass that the Synagogue shall be established at the top of the hill and all of Jewish faith fhall flock unto it, including those who were formerly aloof, for the unaffiliated shall then be no more in the land. It shall stand beautiful, commodious ,in form and style characteristically Jewish, its interior replete with Jewish symbolism,—a shrine for devout and unaffected worship, a fountainhiad of Jewish education, a center for socialibility and fellowshipIts prayers shall express the Jewish soul and be atuned to the Jewish heart. Its music shall have its roots deep in Jewish yearning and aspiration. Its sermons shall give moral and spiritual nourishments and nothing that is vital in human life and character shall be alien to them. And all its company shall be taught of the Lord, from the youngest of them even unto the oldest of them, for there Jewish education shall blossom like the rose and shall saturate every activity of the Synagogue like a refreshing stream. Its young shall dream dreams and see visions that are redolent of Jewish mysticism and idealism. Its Sisterhoods and its affiliates shall be an integral part of the whole, the problems of the Synagogue itself being their problems and their own contributions to Jewish life unfolding as a part of the same flowers and fruit. Its lay leadership shall be a leadership of knowledge and character and Jewish worth. Its Rabbis shall minister to every human need, not indeed individually, but collectively, for there the scholarly preacher and the trained educator and the understanding pastor shall all come into their own. The call to social service and to social justice and to civic righteousness and to good-will and to universal peace and brotherhood that shall sound like a clarion from the pulpit there, shall not fall on deaf ears there, but shall go i forth from there to make itself in the affairs of men,—in the lifting cf mankind to a higher plane of life and conduct and in the building of a better world to live in. The Jewish Floridian is happy to have served this institution in its humble way, helped pave the road for the success Beth David has achieved. Together with the entire Jewish community we salute Beth David, its Rabbi, and leaders, and con' gratulate them on the noble task they have accomplished, and wish them further glory ia their undertakings.

Maintaining contact with the Jewish college stu dent for the purpose of keeping him within the fold concerning lewish customs and traditions is I major and worthwhile project, timely, indeed.

W. 13th Court; Phone 3-5192 A Message from the Miami Section National Council of Jewish Women TIMELY WORDS The approaching Passover festivals bring to mind most forcibly the pressing problems in its wake. Shall we permit as in the past shameless violation of Jewish traditional laws in its name? Will our people buy their Passover products from establishments that openly defy and ignore our sacred customs and traditions and indulge in this matter only as a lucrative practiceWould it that we could purchase Passover prdoucts in stores that observe the Sabbath, a thing not impossible if our men would abstain from buying on the Sabbath and thus enable some storekeepers to observe in practice our Sacred Day of restUntil that time, however, let our people beware from patronizing stores where Chometz is sold on Pesach and where the word Kosher is abused and misused in a most shameless fashion. LADIES AUXILIARY An afternoon of games and entertainment will be arranged by the Ladies Auxiliary Thursday afternoon, March 21st at the Astor HotelWashington Avenue, corner Tenth Street in Miami Beach This affair is run for the benefit of the Talmud Torah building fund and it is particularly appropriate that our worthy women of today utilize Rosh Chodest Nisan for work on behalf of our proposed new building. Our Rabbis teach us that the redemption in Egypt's land was considerably due to the virtues of Israel's women, may it be that our redemption too, should come thru the effort of our good ladies. So please be of help and come with your friends to the Astor Hotel on the afternoon of Tuesday, March 21st.

The immigrant has made America his permanent home; he wants to belong here; the laws of the na tion protect him His children have been born here and they have received free education. He wish es to work in public institutions and to take advantage of the privileges that a government grants its citizens after years of contribution to the community, such as social security, old age pensions, civil service jobs, and licenses. There are certain privileges which are granted only to American citizens, such as passport to travel and protection by our government in a foreign country. Recently there has been a movement on the part of some countries abroad to reduce the Jews to a minority people with minority rights, taking from them the right to vote, hold office, or get the protection of their governmentThis fortunate ly is not true in America. It is necessary therefore that those of us who understand the anxiety ai.'d uncertainty that exists in the heart of the alien who is a man without a countrv help him to become a citizen of the United States of America.

UNVEILING This coming Sunday afternoon at 2:00 o'clock at the City Cemetery, in Miami, the unveiling of a monument in memory of the late Sarah Afremow will take place.

REFUAH SHLAEMA We pray unto the Almighty that He send a complete cure to Mrs Schwartz, and may she know of no further illness. "Aliyah" is a Hebrew word meaning ascent—the act of, ascendinggoing toward the beginning, or the source. It is an upward movement. My story today deals with the ASCENSION of hundreds a n d thousands of boys and girls who have ascended from a seething pit of hatred and persecution, and have gone to a land, which offers to them a new life, a life of prom ise and hope When Hitler rose to power in Germany, and began his acts of terrorism, and crushing persecutions against the Jewish people, the people were prepared for his merciless onslaught, only after they were forcibly ostracise! socially, humiliated publicly, their human rights suppressed, did they begin to realize just what was hap pening. they were being relegated to an inferior status, deprived of liberty, freedom, and denied citizenship in a country that they once loved. I can well understand the ache in the hearts of these people, and can see little children growing silent and afraid, warped and bitter, not understanding what was happening. Out of the depths of despair came the anguished cry "Rescue the children. Our youth must be saved, we must preserve our identity." And so the first defensive steps taken in this direction was to organize youth groups, under one Federation, and it was out of this union that the Youth Aliyah movement grew. The purpose of these groups was to acquaint the children with Juda ism, with its literature, its history its customs and traditions, and to prepare them for a Jewish life in another country. Prior to that time many of these innocent children knew nothing of Judaism. their past, and of their glorious history—all they knew was th< pain and sorrow of being a Jew but none of its blessings.

Unfortunately, due to the limitation of immigration into Pales tine, only certain children were selected from the youth groups, and sent to preparation camps, when they were prepared physically and mentally for life in the cooperative colonies of Palestine. In Palestine 40 Kvutzoths and trade schools met and agreed to accept these unhappy harrassee children, and to integrate them into their own colonies. "Kvutzah" is the Hebrew word for cooperative, a Kvutzah is a cooperative uolony which is founded on nat tonally owned land, on which r I small group of about 50 men and women live communally, using commonly owned tools, apparatus and buildings.

Immediately plans were drawn and contracts let for the renova tion and remodeling of the syna gogue basement, creating six mon class rooms, clean, airy and invit ing.

Before a year had passed Rabbi Shapiro had assumed his rightful place among the spiritual leaders in the community as a worthy and trusted representative of the Jewish people. His continued service has increased his value to Miami Jewry in general and his congregation in particular.

Participating in the burning of the Beth David mortgage Sunday March 19th. will be the members of the Mortgage Refunding Com mittee. Organized in 1986 thi committee was charged with the duty and responsibility of present ing and carrying out a program having its ultimate aim the full payment ar.'J redemption of the $22,500.00 mortgage then encumbering the synagogue and Talmud Torah buildings. After a survey of all practi a' >lans the committee recommended the creation of a "Mortgage Re funding Fund" to be used solelj for the purpose of paying and redeeming the mortgage and advocated certain plans whereby mon ies could be raised in addition tr |he amount.^ to be placed in this fund usually required to carry or the administrative functions o) the congregation. The first plan to be accepted by the members of Beth David and to be put into actual operation was the Mi'oras Ha'Machpelah Plan: the purchasing of burial plots from the Greater Miami Jewish Cemetery Association and the re sale of these lots at a profit to members. The committee realizing the import of the words of Bernard Shaw "death is not an unhappy ending when you have learned how to conquer it" took the opportu nity to advise the mer'bers "' "rib David that the suggested plar afforded the opportunity of ob serving th.' age-old tradition since • he days of Abraham. Family burial plots were sold with a small ash payment and the > a'ince payable over a period of five years and in this manner several thousand dollars was raised and placed in the Mortgage Refunding Fund. By other methods additional funds were raised and in a period of five years the mortgage was reduced from $22,500-00 to less than $1",00000. From time to time bequests and contributions in large amounts wire received from members and by appropriate resolution of the Administration Committee were allocated to the Mortgage Refunding Fund. Stained windows in the Synagogue were sold to members to commemorate the deceased parents and relatives, also memorial names were sold on the Markowitz Memorial Plaque and the purchase prices thereof were earmarked for mortgage redemption purposes. The unexpected bequest received from Sarah Afremow, deceased, and the subsequent payment of the Beth David Mortgage will make it possible for the Mortgage Refunding Committee to comnlete its work and render its final report Sarah Afremow Bequest Accelerates Mortgage Payment The celebration of the I timing of the mortgage of Beth David takes place this Sunday night instead of five years hence, due to the generosity of one individual— Sarah Afremow—widow of David j Afremow. after whom Beth David is named died in Miami. Florida, I : jl 1987. When her last will and testament was probated it was I found that Beth David was named j a legatee for a substantial amount and in due time the legacy was received by the Congregation and was in an amount sufficient to pay in full the balance on the existing mortgage, already substantially reduced by the activities of the Mortgage Refunding Committee. Though the mortgage would have eventually been paid in the normal functioning of this committee, the gracious and generous bequest of Mrs. Afremow accelerated the happy event by at least five years. Sarah Afremow Monument To Be Unveiled Beth David, Beth Jacob and Jewish Welfare Bureau To Participate in Services Three legatees of the estate of ,tHe estate of the late Mrs. Sarah Afremow will participate in the unveiling of a monument in memory of the late Sarah Afremow. ory of the deceased. Bel and the Jewish Welfare Bu eau have appointed committees to ripresent them at the unveiling of the monument this coming Sunday afternoon at 2:0(i p. m.. at the City ( i metery, The crystalization of the mortgage redemption plan began several years ago and came about as a direct result of Beth David being a large beneficiary of the estate of the late Sarah Afremow. Members and friends of all three organizations are urged to be present at the unveiling services this coming Sunday. j _j The Administrative Committee has already instructed the committee to render a full report and has directed it to turn over all assets and funds in its possession to the Beth David Building Fund, another special fund created for the purpose of providing monies with which to improve and renovate the Ta'mud Torah and Synagogue buildings.

PAGE TWO THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN FRIDAY, MARCH 17 A Message From The President of Beth David Seven Years of Achievement To be president of this congregation is indeeed a, privilege, but to be president at a time when our mortgage is redeemed, is not only a privilege but an honorI feel grateful indeed after serving as an officer ami director for the past seven years that at last we have succeeded in reaching a goal which we have looked forward to and which all congregations hope to achieveAs early as 1932, our board of directors were concerned chiefly %  with the redemption of the mortgage and through the various timely plans, such as the sale of Memorial Windows, the placing of names in the Book of Life, and the sale of cemetery plots to members, we succeeded in redeeming a goodly portion of the mortgage, which together with the legacy of our late member and benefactress, Mrs. Sarah Afremow, has made possible the celebration which we are about to witness—the burning of the mortgageJoin a Congregation! Jews are united in religious wor 1 ship as they cannot be in any other way. Every Jew is accordingly expected to identify himself with some .Congregation, be it Orthodox, Conservative or Reform, and if his Jewish standing meanss anything to him, he will hasten to become, if he has not already, a member of a Jewish Congregation. Not long ago, Jacob W. Mack, of Cincinnati, chairman of the Executive Board of the Union of Hebrew Congregations said that: "Two imperious causes are disputing leadership with the Synagogue. First, conditions which in Europe are.of such import that their neglect would be fatal to our very existence. Remedial measures in these lands demand our instant and generous response And second—at home the growing problem of anti-Semitism cannot be permitted to remain without a vigorous attempt at wholesale solution. The solution of both these vital problems demands organization, action, and above all, the generous support of every Jew." He further said. "I honor all who have given themselves to these causes, but I condemn without measure, those who accept and propound these solutions as substitutes for the Synagogue. The reason for supporting these various causes arises from the Synagogue, the aim of whose efforts is to make the practice of Judaism safe in all landsWithout the synagogue, why these efforts? What will it profit us to save Jews and lose that for which the Jews have maintained their lifelong struggle? The Synagogue is the root of the tree on which grows the fruit of love and mankind, the fruit of social betterment, the fruit of religious freedom. Can these fruits grow in mid-air with out careful attention to the roots themselves?" It is of a very first importance that none fail to consider the mat ter of active identification with some Congregation, Reform, Conservative or Orthodox, whichever is deemed most suitable and satisfying. As an obligation to themselves and their people, they cannot and mast not under any conditions be set aside in favor of any other that some may be disposed to regard as of equivalent or of even greater merit. Sooner or later, all have need of the SynaSpiritual Leaders Unite Inj Congratulating Congregation] M. J. KOPELOW1TZ President of Beth David gogue, and it is a matter therefore of self respect to become affiliated with one without delay. Whatever else one does, if his Jewish instincts and impulses are what they should be, there is a feeling that something is lacking if there is an absence at religious services and failure to assume a fair share of the burden of maintaining congregational lifeThe decent thing to do, is to lose no time in attending to the matter of congregational membership regardless of any other Jewish connections Now that the burden of a mort gage has been removed from our institution, let us not be unmindful of the fact that we still have worlds to conquer. We must continue to dedicate ourselves to the consideration of our most important duty, to, the problem of our heritage, to the question of sincerely and fully handing down the traditions of our fathersAccord ing to the true Jewish conception, no synagogue is complete without a school. We can justly boast of our Talmud Torah and Sunday School, where we teach nearly 300 children to be proud of our herigage. Out of our school has already emerged, and with the help of the Almighty, may they continue to emerge, a generation of young men and women who are living examples of the joy of life •ind the love of God, which we call "simcha shel mitzvah"—Our children are taught to serve the God of Israel, to serve Him with all I their soul and all their strength. Nor is our school an institution i limited to members of Beth David. It is our desire to afford every Jewish father the opportunities for his children which our Talmud Torah and Sunday School provides. As they grow up into full appre\ ciation of their duties toward their 1 people, the world will point to | them with pride and since they will be good Jews, they will imoart all that is good in the civilization of our day. RABBI MAX SHAPIRO Rabbi of Beth David PRAYER •She Hecheyonu VKimonu V Higiyonu I.'Zman Hazeh We Thank Thee O Lord for Permitting l's to Witness This Day and This Momentous Occasion. To the Presidents, Members and Friends of the Congregation and Sisterhood, may I state that despite obstacles and impediments encountered your work is highly appreciated by those who are sincere and earnestThe thought that you are giving the adults and children of Miami the faith of our fathers; the untainted purity of Jewish life should recompense you manifold. Your names shall long be remembered! I add this prayer from the Sabbath morning services "May He Who Blessed Our Fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, together with all other holy congregations, their wives, their sons and daugh ters, and all that belong to them; those als 0 who unite to form synagogues for prayer and those who enter therein to pray; those who give the lamps for lighting and wine for Kiddish and Hav Dalahbread to the wayfarers and char ity to the poor, and all such as occupy themselves in faithfulness with the ones of the Congregation —may tha Holy Oneblessed be He also give vou your recompense and send blessings and prosperity upon all the work of your hands as well as upon all Israel, your brethren, and let us say AMEN. JOIN A CONGREGATION Today more than ever before Jews owe it to themselves and their people to actively identify themselves with some Congregation, be it Orthodox, Conservative or Reform.—Congregational life is what has kept Jews united through all the ages. Stand up and be counted. It is your duty to join a Congregation regardless of any other Jewish connections. Rabbi Israel Kaplan of Jacksonville.

Rabbi L Orecnstein of Palm Beach. Forida "Though I am a new comer in | the State of Florida, yet I must admit that I am overjoyed to express a few congratulatory com ments. It is indeed worthy that I such an institution as Beth David should be free of its mortgage." Rabbi Carl Herman of Palm Beach Florida "We are positive that the memhers and friends of Beth David will appreciate the fact that altho the institution is free of its mort gage, yet it is necessary to muster the energy and material powers to continue your great work to redeem the Jewish souls of our adults and children." Rabbi Morris Skop of Orlando, Florida "Little did we realize that when we congregated in your synagogue last year for a Rabbinical Conference that Beth David would be in a position to celebrate the redemption of its mortgage.

I congratulate you most heartily on this happy occasion when you will burn your mortgage on your House of Worship, your Synagogue. Y'ou are now able to dedicate your Synagogue in a new way to the worship of God and to all the fine activities in human life for which the Synagogue has stood and stands today in the life of IsraelYou have paid for the Synagogue and it is now clean of debt, even as the Tabernacle of old was built of free will offerings, entirely unincumbercd, dedicated completely to God In such a sanctuary, in such a Synagogue.

Yours is one of the very few synagogues in the country to which a devoted soulbefore passing into the Great Beyond, has be queathed a sum of money which has made it possible in part to achieve this 'consumation devoutly to be wished.' Jews everywhere have willed their wealth to every cause that appealed to them, but very few have given thought to the Synagogue in their will, and that, as I see it. is due to what a French writer once said: The most nrecious thing about the Jew is his soul, and that he is ashamed of.

E., the Jewish people lost its temple its land, and its state and was threatened with complete dissolution, it had already evolved an institution which was to serve as compensation and substitute. That institution was the Synagogue. Through two thousand years of persecution and trial, the House of God gave to the Jew that inspiration and strength that idealism and loyalty which enabled him to survive in the teeth of a hostile world. It is not an accident that tradition knows three distinct names for the Synagogue, 'Beth Tefilla." or 'House of Pray. "Beth Hamidrash" or "House of Study" and "Beth Hakeach Jew, young and old. becomes charged with a current of spirit" ality which really influences one's every action and deed as well a: thought and word.

It has taught the Jew faith in the Crealor behind the physical world and in the moral law by which the Intelligence orders human relationship. '' BETH HAMIDRASH'': The Synagogue has always been a House of study. No Jewish place of worship has ever been without facilities for research and instruction, and since Judaism can live only through learning, the Synagogue by its instruction in religion, law and morality, has historically been a fountain head of the living waters of the Torah. "BETHHAKNESSETH": This indicates that the Synagogue Served not only as a Temple and school but as the focus for the social and communal life of the Jewish community It mtegerated itself with the daily activities of the individual never permtting itself to be isolated from the major movements of Jewish life. The Rabbi, President, Officers and Members of Beth David Congregation are to be congratulated at this momentous occasion for the Beth David Congregation has stood up as a strong, hold of Judaism fulfilling triple function of worship, study and communal activitiesFor its achievements in the past every Jew who loves hii people and faith must feel grateful. For its aspirations in the future, every Jew who loves his God and Torah must give a helping hand.

Itadicvn-Jeivish Expulsion
Edict Delayed To April 1
Rom*.. (WNS>--Usually.reliable
sources rneport that there hts been
an unoBfr'ial postponement \io Ap-
ril 1 of St* March 2 deadlm* for
expulsion < milligram. oT -.littiom apjr-. .\i-
mately 6, though the eapulsioii deadline pas
sed without ttiy kn.iwi. major *'-
tion taken b> authorities he*e,
there is no indication that the Gin
rnment will Un up in as threat-
enwd action to enforce the decree.
Reports from the French border!
that liuivdreds of Jews are being
forced from Italy at bayonet point
are not authoritative since no offi-
cial information is avertable There
was no comment in the Italian
press as me deadline wa reached
and passed and it was reliably dis-
closed that there will be no gener-
al roundup of Jews at this time for
deportation under last Octvfcer's
expulsion decree.
Refugee committees in all large
Italian cities carried on as usual-
receiving hundreds of foreign Jews
? eeking aid and information. Ap-
peals for prolongation of ptay and
for definite information on the
ttatus of foreign Jews were re-
ceived at official offices in in-
creasing volume. Hundreds of
Jewish foreigners who had arrang-
ed to emigrate hut remained to the
!ast hoping that the time limit
would be extended left at the elev-
enth hour. Thousands subject to
the decree who were unable to
comply remained in- fear of arrest.
Those w-ho can produce satisfac-
tory reasons for not being able to
comply with the expulsion edict
'.ill be granted additional exten-
sion beyond the new deadline, un-
"fficially set for April 1. Evidence
f Intention to emigrate within a
"reasonable" time will be a cepted
among such reasons, it was -tat
I'd. Up to now. however, only a
-mall number of cases have, been
reported in whith extensions of as
much it six mimths hatte been
granted.
Of Hoe 10000 foreign Jews re-
portedry in Italy when the edict
was issued last Tall, about 5,000
were aancesftil in obtaining visas
to other iimiutries before expira
tion of the time limit. The major
ity of thr emigrants went to Chile,
the UniU-d 'States, Trance. Pales-
tine and England. A few hundred
were allowed fr> return to the'ii
native countries. Poland, Hungary
and Rumania, Vtnle sorie found
temporary refuge in South Amer-
ica, the port of Tangiors .and in
the near and far East. Tortfgn
Jew* remaining in Italy ar*- not
allowed to work and more than
half are dependent on refugee
committees for sustenance- The
situation of foreign Jews remain-
ing in Italy has reached the critical
stage and they are subject to any
action that may be taken by the
central or local authorities.
Strictly Confidential
Paiis. (WNS)Contrary to Par-
is reports that 0,000 of. the Jews
expelled from Italy were in the
hills trying to cross the Italian
border into France at Nice, the
Jewish Relief Committee there
stated that only several hundcvi'd
were in the Area. The Nice Com-
mittee was told by telephone to
Rome that Italian officials know
"othing of the situation at the
French border.
The 400 refugees at Nice includ-
ed a large number of women arid
children. Many of them had been
w.uinded by the bayonets of Ital-
ian soldiers, according to inform-i-
ion from the relief committee.
They were well treated by the local
Dolice who showed a willingness to
to cooperate in legalizing their
stay. Funds t.> aid the refugees
were rushed to Nice by the Amer-
ican Jewish Joint Distribution
Committee's Paris office.
Britain Adamant on Plan
For Independent State
*v >*>
London. (WNS, Palcor Agency)
Pleas of members of all British
parties and adamant opposition of
the Jewish delegation, which has
ategorically rejected the Govern-
ment proposals and threatened non
co-operation if they were adopted,
apparently went unheeded as the
British Cabinet decided at a meet
^ng that it was unable in any way
-.o modify, the proposals, which en-
vision an Independent State of
Palestine in five years,' according
| to a report in the Daily Telegraph.
The plan, according to which
[Jewish immigrants into Palestine
would be restricted to ten thousand
Unnually during the next five
I years pending the creation of the
[Palestine Independent State, also
[contains clauses restricting the
I sale of land to Jews; the exact
[terms of this latter provision are
[to be arranged through Arab-Jew-
i-British conferences in the near
future.
This is in essence the same plan
that was submitted privately to the
Jewish and Arab delegations two
and a half weeks ago, and which
caused the Jews to break off all
formal negotiations on the ground
that any such proposal, which nec-
essarily implies a minority status
for the Jews, could not be used |as
a basis even for discussion.
The terms of the proposal are
not expected to be accepted with-
out a struggle by the Arabs eithetf
for though it promises them their
coveted Independent State with an
Arab majority, it denies two of
their cardinal demandscomplete
stoppage of immigration and total
ban on land sales to Jews- The
government is, however, believed
to be determined to enforce, its
policy whatever the objection of
Palestine's population.

It Shall Come to Pass
Florida Jewry,> this week, witnesses a unique celebration-
Once again, Miami, at the southernmost part of the country, far
away from the great centers of Jewish culture, education, and
activity, finds itself in the spotlight. Beth David, the Pioneer
Congregation, organized in 1912, when Miami was still in its
infancy, after years of struggle, filled with what seemed unsur.
mountable obstacles, weathered not only its storms, but has
, emerged triumphant, and now, on Sunday, March 19th, will cele-
I brate its glorious and unforgettable occasion of '' The Redemp-
tion and Burning of its Mortgage.''
Religion has become an integral part in the lives of Ameri-
can Jewry, and in Miami, its religious organizations have al-
[ ways played a leading part.
To Beth David, we respectfully dedicate the following
prayer:
And it shall come to pass that the Synagogue shall be
established at the top of the hill and all of Jewish faith
fhall flock unto it, including those who were formerly aloof,
for the unaffiliated shall then be no more in the land. It
shall stand beautiful, commodious ,in form and style char-
acteristically Jewish, its interior replete with Jewish sym-
bolism,a shrine for devout and unaffected worship, a
fountainhiad of Jewish education, a center for socialibility
and fellowship-
Its prayers shall express the Jewish soul and be atuned
to the Jewish heart. Its music shall have its roots deep
in Jewish yearning and aspiration. Its sermons shall give
moral and spiritual nourishments and nothing that is vital in
human life and character shall be alien to them. And all its
company shall be taught of the Lord, from the youngest of
them even unto the oldest of them, for there Jewish educa-
tion shall blossom like the rose and shall saturate every
activity of the Synagogue like a refreshing stream. Its
young shall dream dreams and see visions that are redolent
of Jewish mysticism and idealism. Its Sisterhoods and its
affiliates shall be an integral part of the whole, the
problems of the Synagogue itself being their problems and
their own contributions to Jewish life unfolding as a part
of the same flowers and fruit.
Its lay leadership shall be a leadership of knowledge
and character and Jewish worth. Its Rabbis shall minister
to every human need, not indeed individually, but collec-
tively, for there the scholarly preacher and the trained edu-
cator and the understanding pastor shall all come into their
own. The call to social service and to social justice and to
civic righteousness and to good-will and to universal peace
and brotherhood that shall sound like a clarion from the
pulpit there, shall not fall on deaf ears there, but shall go i
forth from there to make itself in the affairs of men,in
the lifting cf mankind to a higher plane of life and conduct
and in the building of a better world to live in. .
The Jewish Floridian is happy to have served this institu-
tion in its humble way, helped pave the road for the success
Beth David has achieved. Together with the entire Jewish com-
munity we salute Beth David, its Rabbi, and leaders, and con-
' gratulate them on the noble task they have accomplished, and
wish them further glory ia their undertakings.

Mickey Lubel. former star for the

Y. M. C. A., who tallied 19 of his
team's 37 points while the "Y" to-
taled 30. As this game was for
the championship of the East
Coast League we feel that the boys
put up a great show for the custo-
mers and deserve the applause of
all. Manager Davis Lackawitz

regular business meeting Tuesdaj
night Nearly all delegates to thi
District convention reported on thi
activities of the convention'. Om
summary report would probablj
have been sufficient but our goo:'
brothers as delegates all had dif
ferent slants on the various phase;
of the work taken up at the con-
vention- So,--all's well that ends
well.
The Student Union Committee of
B'nai R'rith un-der the chairman
ship of "yours truly" and co-
chairmanship of Brother Dr. Chas.
Werblow, is planning a definite
program for the Jewish .group at
the University of Miami. At pres
ent. arrangements are being made
to allow Jewish students the priv-
ilege of partaking in the Passover
Seder night ceremorfies. Coopera-
tion is expected from local and|
Miami Beach hotels and restau-
rants to serve Seder dinners to
such students as desire to observe
the Passover. Maintaining con-
tact with the Jewish college stu
dent for the purpose of keeping
him within the fold concerning
lewish customs and traditions is I
major and worthwhile project,
timely, indeed.
One of the biggest innovations
at the "Y" in many months, is the
formation of a "Y" orchestra un-
der the able leadership of Sid Step'
kin. This group is composed of
'Y" members exclusively, compris
ng all divisions. last night, the
-econd rehearsal was held, and be-
lieve you me, judging from th>>
omments in and around the "Y,"
they are a great aggregation. Re-
hearsals are held every Tuesday
and Thursday evenings at the "Y."

A Message from the Miami Section
National Council of Jewish Women
TIMELY WORDS
The approaching Passover festi-
vals bring to mind most forcibly
the pressing problems in its wake.
Shall we permit as in the past
shameless violation of Jewish tra-
ditional laws in its name? Will
our people buy their Passover pro-
ducts from establishments that
openly defy and ignore our sacred
customs and traditions and indulge
in this matter only as a lucrative
practice- Would it that we could
purchase Passover prdoucts in
stores that observe the Sabbath, a
thing not impossible if our men
would abstain from buying on the
Sabbath and thus enable some
storekeepers to observe in prac-
tice our Sacred Day of rest- Until
that time, however, let our people
beware from patronizing stores
where Chometz is sold on Pesach
and where the word Kosher is
abused and misused in a most
shameless fashion.
LADIES AUXILIARY
An afternoon of games and en-
tertainment will be arranged by
the Ladies Auxiliary Thursday af-
ternoon, March 21st at the Astor
Hotel- Washington Avenue, corner
Tenth Street in Miami Beach This
affair is run for the benefit of the
Talmud Torah building fund and
it is particularly appropriate that
our worthy women of today utilize
Rosh Chodest Nisan for work on
behalf of our proposed new build-
ing. Our Rabbis teach us that the
redemption in Egypt's land was
considerably due to the virtues of
Israel's women, may it be that our
redemption too, should come thru
the effort of our good ladies. So
please be of help and come with
your friends to the Astor Hotel on
the afternoon of Tuesday, March
21st.
GREETINGS
The officers and membership of
the congregation, the board of di-
rectors and the members of the La-
dies Auxiliary, the Rabbi ami the
Rebbetzen employ this means of
extending heartiest congratulations
to the Beth David Congregation on
their great celebration of burning
of the mortgage. We rejoice with
Miami'- pioneer synagogue and
urge all our friends to join person-
ally in this splendid affair and
come to the Beth David on Sunday
night, March 19th. May it be the
will of our God in Heaven that we
shall be granted the many occas-
ions of joy in the communal life of
our congregations.
HABANOTH HAPPENINGS
Preparations are complete for
the gala annual play and enter-
tainment of the respective clubs.
Out of respect to the Beth David
celebration the affair was post
poned urrt.il March 26th and will
be held in the Y. M. H- A- audi-
torium, 1567 Southwest Fifth St.
An excellent program will be pre-
sented and as in the past there is
ample assurance that a most de-
lightful evening will be in store
for those who will attend. As the
entire proceeds will be devoted to
a most worthy Congregational pro-
ject we urge our many friends to
be of help and encourage these
little messengers of Jewish hopes.
Cantor Joseph Malek will pre-
sent the musical program-
JEWISH RADIO HOUR
This Sunday afternoon, March
19th at 3:00 p. m-. Rabbi Abraham

MAZEL TOV
We extend sincere congratula-
tions to Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Bren-
ner upon the birth of their grand-
son. May parents and grandpar-
ents live to see the little arrival
grow into happy Jewish manhood.
TALMUD CLASS
The weekly Talmud group had
another distinguished lecturer in
the person of Rabbi Gershon
Screibman, a visitor from the Holy
I,and. This great Talmudic schol-
ar is associated with a most wor-
thy project, that of publishing
hitherto unpublished commentar-
ies on the Talmud Yerushuliam.
Rabbi Schreibman is an authority
on the problems of Palestine and
his talk last Sabbath was listened
to most eagerly We are happy to
have been the first congregation
that was host to this great Talmud
Ohochom and we urge our many
friends to attend the public recep
tion to be tendered him-
WELCOME VISITORS
The congregation extends a
hearty welcome to Mrs. Sarah Tan
nenbaum and her son, Mr. Nathan
Tannenbaum, who recently arrived
from New York for an extended
stay. They are the mother and
brother respectively of our Reb-
betzen and we hope that their stay
will be a most pleasant one.
BOARD OF DIRECTORS
A very important meeting of our
Board of Directors will be held
Tuesday night, March 21st, in the
Synagogue Very important mat-
ters will be under discussion and
the attendance of Board members
is urgently requested-
LADIES AUXILIARY TO MEET
There will be an important meet-
ing of the I-adies Auxiliary Tues-
day evening. March 21st. in the
Synagogue, The attendance of all
members is urged.
The National Council of Jewish
Women is equipped to render nat-
uralization and citizenship aid by
virtue of its technical staff and
long record of service to the for-
eign horn. Today even more than
ever before it is very important
that all of those who can, should
make application for citizenship.
The immigrant has made America
his permanent home; he wants to
belong here; the laws of the na
tion protect him His children
have been born here and they have
received free education. He wish
es to work in public institutions
and to take advantage of the privi-
leges that a government grants
its citizens after years of contri-
bution to the community, such as
social security, old age pensions,
civil service jobs, and licenses.
There are certain privileges which
are granted only to American citi-
zens, such as passport to travel
and protection by our government
in a foreign country. Recently
there has been a movement on the
part of some countries abroad to
reduce the Jews to a minority peo-
ple with minority rights, taking
from them the right to vote, hold
office, or get the protection of
their government- This fortunate
ly is not true in America. It is
necessary therefore that those of
us who understand the anxiety ai.'d
uncertainty that exists in the heart
of the alien who is a man without
a countrv help him to become a
citizen of the United States of
America.

REFUAH SHLAEMA
We pray unto the Almighty that
He send a complete cure to Mrs
Schwartz, and may she know of
no further illness.
"Aliyah" is a Hebrew word
meaning ascentthe act of, as-
cending- going toward the begin-
ning, or the source. It is an up-
ward movement.
My story today deals with the
ASCENSION of hundreds a n d
thousands of boys and girls who
have ascended from a seething pit
of hatred and persecution, and
have gone to a land, which offers
to them a new life, a life of prom
ise and hope When Hitler rose to
power in Germany, and began his
acts of terrorism, and crushing
persecutions against the Jewish
people, the people were prepared
for his merciless onslaught, only
after they were forcibly ostracise!
socially, humiliated publicly, their
human rights suppressed, did they
begin to realize just what was hap
pening. they were being relegated
to an inferior status, deprived of
liberty, freedom, and denied citi-
zenship in a country that they
once loved. I can well understand
the ache in the hearts of these
people, and can see little children
growing silent and afraid, warped
and bitter, not understanding what
was happening. Out of the depths
of despair came the anguished cry
"Rescue the children. Our youth
must be saved, we must preserve
our identity."
And so the first defensive steps
taken in this direction was to or-
ganize youth groups, under one
Federation, and it was out of this
union that the Youth Aliyah move-
ment grew.
The purpose of these groups was
to acquaint the children with Juda
ism, with its literature, its history

swer to this tragic dilemna, a call
of deliverance came from Palestine
offering a home for the body and
spirit of these children, with train

soil.
Unfortunately, due to the limit-
ation of immigration into Pales
tine, only certain children were se-
lected from the youth groups, and
sent to preparation camps, when
they were prepared physically and
mentally for life in the cooperative
colonies of Palestine.
In Palestine 40 Kvutzoths and
trade schools met and agreed to
accept these unhappy harrassee
children, and to integrate them
into their own colonies. "Kvutzah"
is the Hebrew word for coopera-
tive, a Kvutzah is a cooperative
uolony which is founded on nat
tonally owned land, on which r I
small group of about 50 men and '
women live communally, using
commonly owned tools, apparatus
and buildings.
In- 1984 the first group was sent
to Palestine to begin life anew, a
life not devoid of hardships and
dangers, but an opportunity to live ;
as free creative, normal human |
beings- Life in the colonies is su-
pervised by instructors, who guid< j
and direct the children; their train
ing consists of 4 hours of work.

When the new semester began

This unprecedented enrollment

Immediately plans were drawn
and contracts let for the renova

committee was charged with the
duty and responsibility of present
ing and carrying out a program
having its ultimate aim the full
payment ar.'J redemption of the
$22,500.00 mortgage then encum-
bering the synagogue and Talmud
Torah buildings.
After a survey of all practi a'
>lans the committee recommended
the creation of a "Mortgage Re
funding Fund" to be used solelj
for the purpose of paying and re-
deeming the mortgage and advo-
cated certain plans whereby mon
ies could be raised in addition tr
|he amount.^ to be placed in this
fund usually required to carry or
the administrative functions o)
the congregation.
The first plan to be accepted by
the members of Beth David and
to be put into actual operation was
the Mi'oras Ha'Machpelah Plan:
the purchasing of burial plots
from the Greater Miami Jewish
Cemetery Association and the re
sale of these lots at a profit to
members. The committee realizing
the import of the words of Bernard
Shaw "death is not an unhappy
ending when you have learned how
to conquer it" took the opportu
nity to advise the mer'bers "'
"rib David that the suggested plar
afforded the opportunity of ob
serving th.' age-old tradition since
he days of Abraham. Family
burial plots were sold with a small
ash payment and the > a'ince pay-
able over a period of five years
and in this manner several thous-
and dollars was raised and placed
in the Mortgage Refunding Fund.
By other methods additional funds
were raised and in a period of five
years the mortgage was reduced
from $22,500-00 to less than $1",-
00000.
From time to time bequests and
contributions in large amounts
wire received from members and
by appropriate resolution of the
Administration Committee were
allocated to the Mortgage Refund-
ing Fund. Stained windows in
the Synagogue were sold to mem-
bers to commemorate the deceas-
ed parents and relatives, also
memorial names were sold on the
Markowitz Memorial Plaque and
the purchase prices thereof were
earmarked for mortgage redemp-
tion purposes.
The unexpected bequest received
from Sarah Afremow, deceased,
and the subsequent payment of the
Beth David Mortgage will make it
possible for the Mortgage Refund-
ing Committee to comnlete its
work and render its final report

A Message From The
President of Beth David
Seven Years of
Achievement
To be president of this congre-
gation is indeeed a, privilege, but
to be president at a time when our
mortgage is redeemed, is not only
a privilege but an honor-
I feel grateful indeed after serv-
ing as an officer ami director for
the past seven years that at last
we have succeeded in reaching a
goal which we have looked forward
to and which all congregations
hope to achieve-
As early as 1932, our board of
directors were concerned chiefly
with the redemption of the mort-
gage and through the various
timely plans, such as the sale of
Memorial Windows, the placing of
names in the Book of Life, and the
sale of cemetery plots to members,
we succeeded in redeeming a good-
ly portion of the mortgage, which
together with the legacy of our
late member and benefactress,
Mrs. Sarah Afremow, has made
possible the celebration which we
are about to witnessthe burning
of the mortgage-
Join a Congregation!
Jews are united in religious wor1
ship as they cannot be in any oth-
er way. Every Jew is accordingly
expected to identify himself with
some .Congregation, be it Ortho-
dox, Conservative or Reform, and
if his Jewish standing meanss
anything to him, he will hasten to
become, if he has not already, a
member of a Jewish Congregation.
Not long ago, Jacob W. Mack, of
Cincinnati, chairman of the Exe-
cutive Board of the Union of He-
brew Congregations said that:
"Two imperious causes are disput-
ing leadership with the Synagogue.
First, conditions which in Eu-
rope are.of such import that their
neglect would be fatal to our very
existence. Remedial measures in
these lands demand our instant
and generous response And sec-
ondat home the growing problem
of anti-Semitism cannot be per-
mitted to remain without a vigor-
ous attempt at wholesale solution.
The solution of both these vital
problems demands organization,
action, and above all, the gener-
ous support of every Jew."
He further said. "I honor all
who have given themselves to these
causes, but I condemn without
measure, those who accept and
propound these solutions as substi-
tutes for the Synagogue. The rea-
son for supporting these various
causes arises from the Synagogue,
the aim of whose efforts is to
make the practice of Judaism safe
in all lands- Without the syna-
gogue, why these efforts?
What will it profit us to save
Jews and lose that for which the
Jews have maintained their life-
long struggle? The Synagogue is
the root of the tree on which grows
the fruit of love and mankind, the
fruit of social betterment, the
fruit of religious freedom. Can
these fruits grow in mid-air with
out careful attention to the roots
themselves?"
It is of a very first importance
that none fail to consider the mat
ter of active identification with
some Congregation, Reform, Con-
servative or Orthodox, whichever
is deemed most suitable and satis-
fying. As an obligation to them-
selves and their people, they can-
not and mast not under any condi-
tions be set aside in favor of any
other that some may be disposed
to regard as of equivalent or of
even greater merit. Sooner or
later, all have need of the Syna-

gogue, and it is a matter therefore
of self respect to become affiliated
with one without delay. Whatever
else one does, if his Jewish in-
stincts and impulses are what they
should be, there is a feeling that
something is lacking if there is an
absence at religious services and
failure to assume a fair share of
the burden of maintaining congre-
gational life- The decent thing to
do, is to lose no time in attending
to the matter of congregational
membership regardless of any
other Jewish connections
Now that the burden of a mort
gage has been removed from our
institution, let us not be unmindful
of the fact that we still have
worlds to conquer. We must con-
tinue to dedicate ourselves to the
consideration of our most import-
ant duty, to, the problem of our
heritage, to the question of sin-
cerely and fully handing down the
traditions of our fathers- Accord
ing to the true Jewish conception,
no synagogue is complete without
a school. We can justly boast of
our Talmud Torah and Sunday
School, where we teach nearly 300
children to be proud of our heri-
gage. Out of our school has al-
ready emerged, and with the help
of the Almighty, may they con-
tinue to emerge, a generation of
young men and women who are
living examples of the joy of life
ind the love of God, which we call
"simcha shel mitzvah"Our chil-
dren are taught to serve the God
of Israel, to serve Him with all
I their soul and all their strength.
Nor is our school an institution
i limited to members of Beth David.
It is our desire to afford every
Jewish father the opportunities for
his children which our Talmud
Torah and Sunday School provides.
As they grow up into full appre-
\ ciation of their duties toward their
1 people, the world will point to
| them with pride and since they
will be good Jews, they will im-
oart all that is good in the civili-
zation of our day.

Greeting and Mazol Tov.
I congratulate you most heartily
on this happy occasion when you
will burn your mortgage on your
House of Worship, your Syna-
gogue. Y'ou are now able to ded-
icate your Synagogue in a new way
to the worship of God and to all
the fine activities in human life for
which the Synagogue has stood
and stands today in the life of Is-

agogue and it is now clean of debt,
even as the Tabernacle of old was
built of free will offerings, entire-
ly unincumbercd, dedicated com-
pletely to God In such a sanctu-
ary, in such a Synagogue. God
promised that His spirit will dwell
therein-
I congratulate you in yet anoth-
er sense. Yours is one of the very
few synagogues in the country to
which a devoted soul- before pass-
ing into the Great Beyond, has be
queathed a sum of money which
has made it possible in part to
achieve this 'consumation devoutly
to be wished.' Jews everywhere
have willed their wealth to every
cause that appealed to them, but
very few have given thought to
the Synagogue in their will, and
that, as I see it. is due to what a
French writer once said: The most
nrecious thing about the Jew is his
soul, and that he is ashamed of.

ngregation Beth D&vid. like
- predecessor, held Friday even
rig ami holiday services in public
ilia until the year 1920, when it
Hired its present synagogue.
The congregation adopted the Con-
- rvative form of worship. Its ul-
aorthodox members held relig-
js services in the vestry rooms,
the basement, where Sabbath
S hool and Talmud Torah classes
M-re held as well as secular com-
munal activities. Fob a number
of years the basement of the syna-
gogue served as a Jewish commu
nity center. In 1929, an annex
was erected which was named the
Talmud Torah Building."
In 1930, following the departure
I1 a former rabbi who had arbi-
trarily converted the synagogue
into a strictly orthodox house of
wcrahip, the congregation was re-
crganizede and the conservative
form of worship restored. Owing
to the heavy indebtedness incurred
by some overzealous administra-
tions the synagogue was unable to
maintain a rabbi. During that
1eriod the services were again con-
ducted by laymen, under the lea-
rship of a Talmud Torah teach-
r. until the advent of the present
ritual leader, Rabbi Max Sha-
piro, about six years ago.
After some strenuous efforts by
racceativa administrations to keep
the struggling congregation alive.
it was resolved that its manage-
ment be entrusted to a board which
was designated as the "steering
committee" During the past six
yeajrs the tongregbtion has been
successfully managed by succeed
ing boards whose name was later
changed to Administrative Board.
Members of this board are elected
by the congregation at the annual
meetings for a term of two years.
The board elects its officers for
tcrrms of one year. It convenes at
the call of the president. The
hoard is composed of twelve mem-
bers. Its present officers are the
following: M- J- Kopelowitz, pres-
ident; Nat Zalka. vice-president;
Sidney Segall. secretary; Louis
Weinkle, treasurer.
The administration, in addition
to meeting the ever increasing
budget of the congregation, has
evolved a plan by which the liqui-
dation of the existing mortgage of
S22.000 appeared to be assured
within a few years. The success
of that plan has recently been ac-
celerated by a legacy which has
been bequeathed to the synagogue
by the late Sarah Afremow.
The pioneer synagogue has been
making history by setting up a
sort of a dictatorship in the form
of a "steering committee" with
full power to administer its af-
fairs. This timely innovation had
been made possible by the volun-
tary resignation of the board of
officers which vainly tried to re-
habilitate the sinking congregation.
The leading spirits of the succes-
sive committees are representa-
tive of the youth of the communi-
ty who are determined to preserve
this old landmark for posterity.
Their public spiritedness should
stir the hearts of those who are
indifferent toward communal re-
sponsibilities. The surviving foun-
ders of the congregation, were and
still are, in full sympathy with the
novel change, which they them-
j selves had initiated, and are quite
( satisfied with the increasingly
! favorable results.
As a matter of record this brief
should list the names of members
! who served as president from 1912
( to 1932; M. Zion, Louis Fine. Isi-
; dor Cohen. Phillip Ullendorf, Dan
i Cromer, H. I. Magid, J. L. Shochet,
| M. H. Rosenhouse and Lewis
! Brown-
For a number of years the ser-
I vices of the congregation were
conducted by laymen under the
leadership of the late Louis Fine
and the late M Zion- Some time
later, through the indefatigable ac-
tivities of the Beth David Sister-
hood (originally the Beth David
auxiliary) it was made possible for
the congregation to engage the
ministration of a rabbi. The fol-
lowing rabbis have occupied the
pulpit: M. Samuelman, Salo Stein,
Emil Friedman. Julian Shape
Murray A. Alsted, Abraham Weis-
feld, acting rabbi S. M. Machtei
and the present incumbent Rabbi
Max Shapiro.
The presidents who have served
Beth David since 1932 until the
present were: Stanley C. Myers.
Harry Markowitz, Harry Gordon,
Sidney Palmer, Abe Kronenfeld
and Jack August. M. J. Kopelo-
witz is president of the present ad-
ministration.

Beth David Activities
Acclaimed Outstanding
With the remarkable influx
of many Jewish people to Miami,
it was found necessary to
build a separate building in order
to house the cultural and religious
activities of the community. Beth
David has always been known as
the mother institution from which
sprang the other religious houses
of worship in Greater Miami. It is
found necessary at present to en-
gage in an expansion program
which will properly house over
three hundred children and hun-
dreds of worshippers- Through
numerous sources, such as the
"Markowitz Memorial Plaque" ded
cated to the memory of beloved
and departed ones whose names
are thereon inscribed, and perpet-
ual care of Yahrzeiten is assured-
and as a result of the many win-
dows in the Synagogue, purchased
by families of departed ones and
through the inauguration of a Me-
morial Book of Life, where names
of departed ones are kept as a per-
manent recordthe expansion pro-
gram committee feels that the Con-
gregation is in a position to launch
its vast program of renovating and
enlarging both the Synagogue and
the Talmud Torah buildings.
The congregation is appreciative
of the' fact that their many good
friends who have subscribed to
these three sourcesthe "Marko-
| witz Memorial Plaque," the Beth
David windows and the Memorial
Book of Life, haveb een greatly
instrumental in making the plan
feasible.

Let us visit on Mondays, Tues-

from three to six in the afternoon,
I the different classes of our He-
I brew School. There we see the
' children studying the Hebrew lan-
i guage, its culture and Hebrew
I laws of our people. From the Alef
Beth class to the Bible, and Rashi

zeal and enthusiasm the pupils
manifest in mastering these stud-
ies.
JUNIOR CONGREGATION
Some Sabbath morning let us
enter the Synagogue and partici-
pate not only in the adult services,
but in the Junior services as well
We say thank God that we have
succeeded in establishing a nucleus
a foundation for all times to per
petuate Judaism in Miami. This
Beth David Junior Congregation
guided by our beloved Musical Di
rector Cantor Kaminsky. has in-
creased in numbers and in fame
from Sabbath to Sabbath. Today
these services are well attended by-
over one hundred children every
Saturday morning at 10:30 and are
led by a Junior Cantor and Junior
Rabbi and several of the members
of the Junior Congregation. Adults
have been so inspired, and we are
positive that you too would be in-
spired, by the traditional liturgic
melodies, that all of you would
spontaneously participate in the
services. It is the only Junior ser-
vices held every Sabbath morning
in Greater Miami.
We at last feel that this commu-
nity will at last have heirs, sons
and daughters who shall be proud
to bear the name "Jew." For this
"Makom Sheyirah Yotzoh L'olom"
for this place where the love of
God and reverance for His laws
are imparted, this place where
your child is taught to observe the
prayers, so that anything that is
low, dishonorable, sinful, vulgar,
or disreputable will be foreign I
him and everything that is pure,
good, holy and honorable will be
near and dear to his heart is none
other than our Junior Congrega-
tional services at the Beth David
Synagogue.
Let us visit the Synagogue or.
any Sabbath morning and we will
find it to be no longer a "Beth
Moshow Zikaenim"a place where
old men and women and some Kad-
dish reciters are congregated; but
a "second home" for our children
where we will see boys and girls
eager to perform God's and Israel's
will on earth.

BETH DAVID CHOIR
How inspiring it would be to
many who have not as yet visited
our Synagogue during the late Fri
day evening services. If you would
only form the habit of attending.
It is very inspirational to listen to
the Beth David choir under the di
rection of Cantor Louis Hayman.
It is noteworthy to see the dih
gence and loyalty shown by the
young women who constitute the
choir and attend religiously every
Friday evening-
The choir consists of the folW-
ing: Mrs. Ed. Friedman, Mrs. Wil-
liam Friedman, Mrs. Millie Rubin-
stein, Mrs. A. Schrager, Mrs. S.
Schapiro, Miss Bede Goldenblank.
Miss Ethel Pont.
The activities within the portals
of our institution are too numer-
ous to expand in detail. Almost
every evening organizations meet
in our auditorium and a cordial in-
vitation is extended to all who de-
sire to participate.
GREETINGS FROM
BETH JACOB
To the Rabbi, Officers and Mem-
bers of Beth David:
Our Rabbis state that a syna-
?igue must be "Gawvoha m'kawl
habawteem" Simply translated
this is the requirement that the
synagogual edifice be higher than
any other building in the city. The
medieval church constructed tall,
empty steeples in order, apparent-
ly, to fulfill this requirement-
steeples void of use. seemingly
pointing to heaven, but all too fre-
quently unawareeven wilfully so
of what was going on below.
There is a certain type of Jew
who still labors under the delusion
that the greatest "mitzva" to be
performed is to place the syna-
gogue on a high planeso high
that he obviously fears to approach
it, and fails so to do more than on
the rarest of occasions.
Not this is the true attitude of
Jewish law. The traditional syna-
gogue is to be not architecturally
higher, but spiritually higher be-
cause of and by means of all the
other homes in the community-
Synagogues can not be high and
mighty in the real sense of the
term unless they are so in relation
to the homes around them- Their
| value comes from the living inter-
relation between home and syna-
gogue- There must be a spiritual
bond which attracts each and ev-
ery heart and mind, and whereby

History of Synagogue
When in the year 70 C. E., the Jewish people lost its temple
its land, and its state and was threatened with complete dissolu-
tion, it had already evolved an institution which was to serve as
compensation and substitute. That institution was the Syna-
gogue. Through two thousand years of persecution and trial,
the House of God gave to the Jew that inspiration and strength
that idealism and loyalty which enabled him to survive in the
teeth of a hostile world.
It is not an accident that tradition knows three distinct
names for the Synagogue, 'Beth Tefilla." or 'House of Pray.
"Beth Hamidrash" or "House of Study" and "Beth Hak-
each Jew, young and old. becomes
charged with a current of spirit"
ality which really influences one's
every action and deed as well a:
thought and word.

Amongst the speakers will be I
Rabbi Jacob H. Kaplan, who is |
chairman of the State Board of
er,
nesseth, or House of Assembly,'' For these three terms
omize the three-fold function of the Synagogue
'' BETH HATFILLAH : The Synagogue is first and fore-
most a House of Prayer. Primarily it offers a sanctuary of
peace to which the individual and group shall resort for com.
munion with God. It has taught the Jew faith in the Crealor
behind the physical world and in the moral law by which the
Intelligence orders human relationship.
'' BETH HAMIDRASH'': The Synagogue has always been
a House of study. No Jewish place of worship has ever been
without facilities for research and instruction, and since Judaism
can live only through learning, the Synagogue by its instruction
in religion, law and morality, has historically been a fountain
head of the living waters of the Torah.
"BETHHAKNESSETH": This indicates that the Syna-
gogue Served not only as a Temple and school but as the focus
for the social and communal life of the Jewish community It
mtegerated itself with the daily activities of the individual
never permtting itself to be isolated from the major movements
of Jewish life.
The Rabbi, President, Officers and Members of Beth David
Congregation are to be congratulated at this momentous occas-
ion for the Beth David Congregation has stood up as a strong,
hold of Judaism fulfilling triple function of worship, study and
communal activities- For its achievements in the past every Jew
who loves hii people and faith must feel grateful. For its aspir-
ations in the future, every Jew who loves his God and Torah
must give a helping hand.
