AN OBLIGA TION
In January of 1938 the Jewish Floridian editorially called
to the attention of Jews of Greater Miami the advisability
the advantagesthe necessity of a Federation. A suggestion
at that time is today a successful, proven reality. True it has ;
not cured all existant evils in its short span of a years' existance
but the progress made has shown such vast improvements over
past practices of having solicitorsmeshulochimprograms !
appeals, etc., that Federation here has been accepted most
You read the papers, but we wonder if you can imagine
how tragic is the situation that confronts millions of our
fellow Jews in war-ridden Europe.
Many Jewish communities have been uprooted in the wake
of the present upheaval in Europe. Hundreds of thousands of
men, women, and children have been driven from their homes
and made to wander in despair over the highways of the world.
As Hitler's troops swept through Poland a shocked world
crouched by radio sets and scanned headlines straining to hear
and read the latest details of the Nazi onslaught. Today, we !
find in Warsaw, alone, emergency soup kitchens established
by Jewish agencies serving 50,000 meals daily ... the only
source of food available to the Jewish population there. In J
the Nazi occupied area of Poland, over 1,500,000 Jews are '
threatened by extinction through starvation and oppression.
More than 200,000 homeless refugees, who fled from towns
near the western frontier, or whose home cities were completely
obliterated by bombardment, are now congregated in Warsaw
and other large cities of Poland, unable to proceed further
and taxing the already overcrowded facilities of these cities.
The Nazis, it seems, have not as yet exhausted their full stock
of brutalities in the conquest of Poland. To the gory record
of sadism which includes such refinements of cruelty as keep
ing milk from the mouths of babesthey have added rape.
Not content with preventing the merciful Quakers and
Red Cross from bringing milk and cod liver oil to starving
tots, and having had their fill of shooting down Jews in cold
blood, the Nazi conquering heroes now turn their bestial gaze
upon Jewish womanhood.
We could go on endlessly to tell you of the many horrors
confronting the Jews in Poland, but that is not the only
problem facing Federation. Devastating as the situation is
in Europe, we Jews in America have also the problems of
helping our people here, and elsewhere in this country.
Having seen millions of its helpless co-religionists crushad
in the wake of the tide of aggression which has engulfed the
peoples of Austria, Czechoslovakia and Poland we cannot but
share in the universal feeling of outrage. The tragedy of the
Jewish people today is a tragedy which reflects a challenge
to the fundamental structure of modern civilization. For the
Jews in America it represents a grave responsibilitya
responsibility which we must meet with imagination and
sacrificesit represents a solemn warning in this subversion
of law and right that in one generation has paralyzed hundreds
of millions of people. If this cancer is ever allowed to lodge
itself and grow in American life, then as has happened abroad
in a generation we may have to say farewell to our cherished
rights, our sacred liberties and our beloveff democracy.

Junior Hadassah is really an
important organization, for peo-
ple must go on and on ever doing
more and more. We young peo-
ple must grow into mature peo-
ple, taking up natural work, lead-
ing in our elder's place the fight
for existence and betterment.
This is hard work, work that we
young folks should be educated
for. Junior Hadassah is a col-
lege in this scheme of learning
From out its dirs pour mottos,
standards and ideals to strength-
en the bones of our backs. It is
that magical thing that lightens
Our Junior Hadassah is also
an organization that looks into
the future and plans for it. This
is why the decision was reached
to join and work with the Amer-
ican Youth Congress. At the
present the American Youth Con-
gress is a young thing. It is
reaching out feelers in all direc-

be thus. Someday its name will
be as a prayer of thankfulness on
the lips of people. Isn't it well |
for Junior Hadassah to join now.
to help in the climb, to give
strength and to receive strength.
And isn't it well, looking into the
future t i realize that anti-Semi-
tism must be fought in the young
before their minds have had a
chance to set and jell. We think
so. We think a great step for
the future has been taken, that a
barrier has been partially lifted.
Last Monday's meeting was an-
other proof of how interesting
our Junior Hadassah meetings
are. Hilde Breskin, program
chairman pro tern, presented a
program celebrating Henrietta
Szold's birthday. Hilde first
gave an interesting talk on the
works of Miss Szold, then the
lights were dimmed and eight
girls, grouped in a semicircle pre-
sented a resume of Miss Szold's
life in the form of a radio skit.
Those who participated were
