(BY SIDNEY SEGAI.I.)
B'nai B'rith Sholem I.odpe is
contributing its support to the-
coming National Convention of
Jewish War Veteran's by assisting
in the sale of t ckets to the Grand
Military Ball. The Lodge is spon-
soring a candidate for Convention
Queen. This will stimulate the
sale of tickets In the '-vent B'nai
B'rith sells more tickets to the
Ball than any other organization,

Queen. This is an expression of
voluntary cooperation ami sup-
Tishoh B Ab (the ninth day of the Jewish month of Ab)
is a day of mourning during which pious Jews fast in com-
memoration of many great catastrophes which befell them
during their history. It marks the destruction of Solomon s
Temple and the abolishment of the entire Jewish kingdom in
Palestine by Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, in the year 586
B. C. E., and about six hundred and fifty years later the same j
fate which befell the Temple of Herod at the hands of the
Roman legions under the command of Titus. And again, ap-1
proximately sixty-five years later, under the leadership of
Bar Kochba, when the Jews had not only recaptured Jerusal-
em, but also begun the erection of a third Temple, on the
ninth day of Ab their last fortress, Bether, fell, and upon the
orders of Hadrain, the victorious Roman emperor, a new city
filled with heathen temples was built on that site. It was on
Tishoh B'Ab that the Jews in the desert of Sinai rebelled
against Moses when spies sent by him to explore the land of
Caanan brought back bad tidings. Thus every woe which, by
coincidence, befalls Jews on 1at day recalls to mind the ser-
ies -ni calamities which occurred throughout history making
tfce Tishoh B'Ab "Lamentations" a tearful- heartrending
chant of mournful odes.
Fasting has the significance of atonement, the reviewing
of past deeds serves to prevent repitition of similar error in
the future. It is said that the Jews were defeated not because
they lacked courage but rather the unity and the ability to
solidify themselves under leaders even during a period of ex-
Today again we face a dangerous situation. The sad me-
morial of this day should provoke a redoubling of our efforts
to the end that the ninth day of Ab which tolled the destruc-
tion of the Temple will be. as it is said, the very day on which
salvation will come.
In addition to the above men-
tioned, another form of support
is luinc tendered the J. W. V
Convention. At a recent officers'
meeting Sholem Lodge decided to
jointly sponsor a gigantic entcl'-
ta nment program and vaudeville
show as a fund raising event.
The other joint sponsors of this
affair are the Harvey Seeds Post
of the American Legion. Miami
Elks Lodge, and Miami Lodge of
Knights of Columbus. The big
show is set for Thursday night.
August 3rd i" Bayfront Park.
The Park will he filled and the
event a financial success.
The committees functioning on
these projects are exerting every
effort to cooperate (your writer
will list the names of the Broth-
ers in next week's column) with
the J. W. V. Convention Com
B'nai B'rith solidarity. Unity
of purpose. Sholem Lodge's ex-
emplification of a united front
and organized effort in the sup-
post of a cause.
At the last meeting of the B^nj.
N. Cardoza Young Judea the elec-
tion of a secretary to fill the va-
cancy created by the resignation
of Betty Kirschenbaum, was held
and Muriel Auslander was elected.
Harold Shapiro was elected pre-
siding officer due to the fact that
both the president. and vice-pres-
ident are away.
The next meeting of the group
will be held Wednesday. August
2nd at 8:00 P. If* at the Beth
David Talmud Torah, 137 N. W.
Third Avenue. Guests during Hie
evening will be members of Junior
Hadassah. All boys and U''',s '
the ages of 14 to 18 are cordially
invited to attend and become
members of the organization.
Rabbi Colman A Zwitman of
Temple Israel, returned to the
-ty from the North where he at-
tended the convention of the
Central Conference of American
Rabbis in Washington, D. C, the
Zionist Convention in New York
and the summer Rabbinical sym-
posium of the Jewish Institute
of Religion. Rabbi Zwitman spoke
at the dedication of the Jewish
Center of Pottstown, Pa. and
gave an address at the New York

Miami Beach voted its support of
Sholem Lodge in its sponsorship
of a candidate for Convention
Queen and its members have be-
gun the work of selling tikets.
On the other hard, the Miami
Chapter of A. Z A. (the original
group) voted NOT to support the
B'nai B'rith Queen candidate, but.
on the contrary, to support an-
other organization's candidate.
This latter in derogation of the
parent organisation. The action
taken by the Miami A. Z. A.'s
was under the "watchful eye" if
our Lodge'* A Z. A. Committee
chairman, whose pacifist tenden-
cies prompted him. no doubt, to
allow such a stupid expression of
childish emotions. The Miami A
Z. A.'s said that they did not like
the choice of B'nai B'rith. Action
based on personality rather than
on principle. Acquiesced in by
leadership. Divided support. No
unity. No cooperation. No ma-
ture understanding. Future Ben

Paris. (WNS)Two small Ger-
man steamships loaded with Jew-
ish refugees have found tempor-
ary refuge at Beirut, Syria, fol-
lowing the outbreak of a pestilen-
tial disease among the passen-
gers, according to an announce-
ment received by French author-
ities. The disease developed af-
ter a wave of suicides was re-
ported among the refugees, who
despaired of finding a haven af-
ter weeks of wandering.
The steamships Breslau and
Ostris, carrying 1,000 passengers
were admitted to the Beirut har-
bor. Another refugee-laden Ger-
man ship, the Thessaly, was
found to be free from disease and
was obliged to put back to sea
with her 800 passengers. A fourth
ship, with 700 aboard, was re-
ported cruising in this area.
The four ships have about 2,560
refugees on board including many
women and children. Turned
away from the Palestine coast by
British destroyers, the ships were
allowed to enter Turkish ports
for food supplies before being
forced out to sea.
