ITS ONLY MONEY
Federation, dedicated to greater service, Marches On with a concentrat-
ed ten-day drive starting Sunday January 7th, to raise $109,850.00.
The Federation drive, once a year, one appeal aiding 38 agencies and
more than 40 Yeshivos. Your criticismunjustifiedlay it asidethe cause
is too greatto all important. If you are solicited by collectors for various
institutions refer them direct to the Federation office.. Their needs, if
legitimate will be provided for out of Federation funds. These are com
munity obligations. Meet them as a community. Federation's success de-
pends on a unitedcooperative backirgvours and mine.
On the eve of this new campaign, a larger one* than last year, for the
responsibilit'es are far greater, we f;nd World Jewry nndenroing a painfr.l
suffering which affects all Jews. In clear and unmistakable terms have
been set forth the urgent need for ass'stance. A better p'c'ure could
not be painted. To-dnv American Jewry should need no rale-* tlk.
Shocking, unbelievable reports reach us from abroad. If one assumed
that the regime of persecution against the Jews could not be surpassed in
subjected to maniacal acts'inhuman ones. Those fortunate enough to
escape the Hitler tyranny must be aided so that they may rehabili-
AID must be given that Palestine may truly be a homeland of our
AID must be given that Jewish knowledge and Jewish tradition shall
not perish from this earth.
AID must be given that the less fortunate in our beloved democracy
AID must be given to the defense organizations that destroy
bigotry and racial intolerance and by these actions protect our very beings.
AID must be given to the wracking cough of the tubercular, the cry
of the omhan. and the w'dow. the appeal for the ill and the needy.
AID mut be given our character building institutions so that
the Youth of todiy may capably assume the reigns tomorrow.
AID must be given to helo alleviate poverty, vice, lack of opportunity,
colorless childhood, helpless old a
to give succor and assistance to the Jews in these difficult times. It is
Jewish and human duty to make real sacrifices to enable them to weather
this storm. pn4 to purv-'vp until a better day arrives.
A'd MUST BE GIVEN.
In this hour of storm and stress when the soul of the Jew is tried to
the utmost, when his brethren across the sen are outraged, humiliated and
deprived of human rights one feels the need of a stimulus so as not to
falter but to carrv on as did our ancestors of old even In their greatest hour
of dnno-er. Wh"t better stimulus than the joy of givingTO GIVE THAT
OTHEPS MAY LIVE.
Others have toiled for the benefits we enjov. We must cherish and
guard these benefits. Thankfully, we must share them with others less
GTVF. THANKS BY GIVING. That is the svmbol of true Judaism.
BE GLAD ITS ONLY MONEY WE NEED GIVE!
Hundreds of thousands of Jews in Poland and Germany gave up
everv cent they had in the worldiust to be alive. Men sterling helples3
as their wives and daughters were taken away to satisfy the beastial desires
of the Nazi soldiers.
Parents bore the heartbreak of parting with thnir own lit-
tle childrenthat young ones might find a new home in other lands.
Thousands of Jews bombed, driven from their homes, tortured, sep-
arated from their loved ones, reduced to beggary, plead for mercynothing
THANK GOD, ITS ONLY MONEY WE NEED GIVE !
The Talmud puts the following question and answer:
"Why is man born with hands clenched, but has his hands wdde open in
The answer is:
"On entering the world man desires to grasp everything, but when he leaves
it he takes nothing with him."
Nowadays we say it briefly: "You can't take it with you."
Every contributor should bear this in mind when deciding upon
the amount which he or she will contribute. Remember,
"BUT FOR THE GRACE OF GOD, IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN YOU."

THE JEWISH FLOEIDIAN
TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE
(BY PHINEAS J. BIRON)
BEHIND THE FRONT
Washington inside circles declare that the Allied block-
ade of Naziland is so effective that by Spring Hitler will have
to order a big military drive to take German minds off physical
hungerand the failure of that drive will bring an immediate
peace ... If you have any appreciable amount of gold in your
dental equipment keep out of Naziland, where dentists have
been instructed to remove the gold from their patients'
teeth and turn it over to Hitler.....The British government
is now sponsoring Freidrich Wolf's anti-Nazi movie, "Profss-
sor Mamlockwhile Dr. Wolf himself, like so many other
German refugees in the country that is Britain's ally, is confined
in a French concentration camp.....Charlie McArthur's
Christmas greeting to Adolf Hitler was a cable reading "What
are you waiting?" and signed "Captain Hans Langsdorff" ..
Did you know, by the way, that when the Graf Spee was in
Montevideo Capt. Langsdorff hinted that if the Uruguyans
weren't co-operative he might be compelled to shell their town?
. And that both Captain Badt and Radio Operator Bennett
of the U. S. S. Tuscaloosa, which rescued the Nazi crew of the
scuttled liner Columbus, are non"Aryans"?
If you want to know- all there is to know about assimila-
tion or anti-Semitism. Arabs or Aryan legislation, artists or
athletes. Americana or the Australian Jewish community, lie
sure you get the first volume of the Universal Jewish Enel-
clopedia, .just published and the first such referenee work to
be brought ou* in this country in thirty-five years The other
nine volumes of the Encyclopedia will appear as quickly as
the dozens of scholars who have been laboring on them can
ready them Did you see that article in The Synagogue Light,
monthly magazine of Wall Street Synagogue, in which Dr.
David I. Maeht and Moses B. Macht deelare the patriarch
Jacob to have been the discoverer of the Mendelian principle
of heredity? ... It Was by the application of this principle that
Jacob bred his flock of speckled goats and brown sheep, say
tiie Maehs ... In Behlehem, Palestine, birthplace of Jesus.
Christmas is celebrated three times every yearon December
25th by the Catholics, on January 6th by the Greek Orthodox
Church and on January 18th by the Armenians Add to your
store of odd and useless information tb.it Disraeli had twenty-

What Oscar Serlin, producer of "Life With Father,'' finds^
most thrilling about the command performance of his play
scheduled to take place at Washington on the President's birth-
day is the fact that his own natal anniversary falls on the same
date as F. D. R.'s When you see this hit play, incidentally,
you might keep in mind that the brother called Whitney on
the stage, who in real life is named Julian Day, was once as-
sociated with a British firm named Salomon and Company .
During the world war Julian served with Lord Allenby's forces
in Palestine, and was so severely wounded in the battle of Jerichc/
that he was reported dead, and on his recovery from his in
juries had a hard time convincing the military authorities
that he was really alive ... If the theatre is one of your hobbies
be sure you get a copy of Bernard Sobers "Theatre Handbook"
The Jewish angle on the pioneering days of the movie in-
dustry includes the fact that Mack Bennett's first Key-
stone comedy was entitled "Cohen at Coney Island," that
Broncho Billy, the first movie celebrity, was born Marx
Aronson, that the first "jungle film" was made by the Sehg
Company thirty years ago and that the first world famous star
to be featured in an American film was Sarah Bernhardt .
We can't resist passing on this gag, gleaned from Winohell
. A .nan says to another man thai he had a strange dream
last night .He dreamed Hitler died And he went to the
funeral ... It was the darndes, thing, he said They let

of those who wish to participate
in the Banquet and dance.
The Committee has been for-

Richman of Washington to make
the principal address. They have
also secured assurance from many
oustanding personages who are
vacationing in Miami, that they
will be present at the banquet and
will participate in sending Sholem

Undoubtedly the greatest and
most glor>ous New Years celebra-
tion ever sponsored by the Y. M.
H. A. came to a close in the wee
hours of January 1st 1940. The
Evans Hotel, scene of this gala
occasion, was privileged to have
the largest crowd ever to enter
its portals. True, there may have
been a little inconvenience be-
cause of the over flow but with
the curfew signaling the arrival
of 1940, all convention was for-
gotten with everyone joining in
the singing of Auld I.ang Syne.
Chester Alexander then present-
ed a fine floor show enjoyed by
those present enough to appreciate
same. About 2:00 a. m. the entire
assemblage entered the Evans
Spanish Ballroom where our ace
cameraman. Herman Waitsman.
showed pictures in technicolor
taken at our Eighth Annual Ball.
Senator Ray Murray amused with
his mimics per (Lew I^hr).
Among the prominent guests
present were, Colin English, super-
itendent of Schools of Florida and
our dear friend Rev. Dick Evan?.
All in all, everyone had a swell
time and most likely a swell head-
ache as an aftermath.

in handling the reservations etc.

about a Community Center Build-
ing but it remained for the Y. M.
H. A., that great Youth Building
organization "to do something
At a recent meeting of the
Board of Directors of the "Y"
we were appointed chairmen of
a committee to organize a plan-
ning board whose duty it will
be to make a complete study
and gather data for a Community
Center Building. It will be our
purpose n this article to outline
briefly the aims and principles of
1I1 g Planning Hoard.
The planning of a Community
Center structure is governed pri-
marily by the needs of the com-
munity it is to serve. It should
be based upon the program of
the organ, zation and since the
program depends upon the pacif-
ic needs of the community, the
building should reflect the efforts

executive director of the Young
Men's Hebrew Association who
has just been appointed as
chairman to formulate a plan-
ning board for a Jewish Com-
to meet these needs in the maxi-
While it becomes apparent that
there can be no universal applica-
tion of a building plan to meet
all situations -it will be the pur-
pose of this Board, as we have
above outlined, to so make its
plan so that it may serve this
community with its very needs
and resources. It is our idea
that the personnel of this Board
should be composed of the lead
ers of the respective Jewish or-
gan zations in this area. Those
men and women wh I understand
the problems of their respective
organizations. The selections of
these leaders will not be on the
"hit and miss" basis, but will be
selected after a careful study of
the personnel of each organiza-
With reference to the actual
structure, it is our idea that we
should have a large auditorium.
a stage, a well euipped kitchen
to serve banquets and dinners for
the various organizations- a well
equipped gymnasium, a lounge
and lobby, several meeting rooms,
a library and swimming pool. We
are also of the opinion that since
many organizations in the city
maintain down town offices and
pay a considerable rental, that a
Community Tenter Building should
provide office space for the var
ions organizations so that they
may have complete facilities in
such a building.
It is absolutely imposs ble to
set forth a detailed set of stand-
ards or give minute detail and
directions for the plan of such
a bu:lding. Indeed, the problems
involved in planning a building of
th;s type are too numerous and
too complex. Therefore, we have
tried in a general way to give
you a bird's eye view of our idea
of a Commnuity Center Building.
That the Y. M. II. A. should
take the initial step in the plan-
ning of such a building is very
obvious because the Young Men's
Hebrew Association of Greater
Miami the outstanding organiza
tion in the south. We say this
advisedly because of the work we
have done in the past and our
plans t" ir the futon .
A brief resume of our program
is as follows: 1Our Cultural
and Educational department we
sponsor lectures, open forums.
Spelling bees, radio broadcasts,
vocational guidance and Amor
canization classes. 2 In our So-
cial Department we have our an
nual CAVALCADE OF STARS
which, this year, will be held on
midnight. January- 30th at the
Plaza Theatre and in which Nick
Kenny of the New York Daly
Mirror will present Harry Rich-
man and George Jessel as M. C.'s
with an all star studded cast. In
addition to our Cavalcade, we
have our annual Ball, our Post
Yom Kippur Dance and our New
Year's Frolic and the annual
Picnic. 3In our Athletic De-
partment we aim to develop the
standards of work in physical
educat on and athletics and pur-
suant thereto we sponsor a dia-
mond ball team, basket ball team,
bowling 'team, box ng, wrestling,
ping pong, badminton, chess.
checkers, and volley ball. 5In

THE JEWISH FLOMDIAN
GREATEST YEAR FOR U. P. A. WILL BE MARKED
AT CONFERENCE ON PALESTINE, JAN. 6th & 7th
Having realized an income of more than $5,000,000 in 1939, the
United Palestine Appeal will celebrate American Jewry's greatest year
of effort for Palestine rebuilding at the National Conference for
Palestine in Washington, D. C. on Saturday evening, January 6th and
Sunday, January 7th. More than 1300 delegates will pay tribute to
the dynamic leadership of Dr. Abba Hillel Silver (left). National
Chairman of the United Palestine Appeal, who made this record pos-
sible through his energetic service as United Palestine Appeal and
United Jewish Appeal National Chairman in 1939. The need for pro-
viding for absorption of 35,000 refugees who entered Palestine in the
past twelve months will be stressed among issues considered at the
Washington conference. Promotion of immigration and colonization
as illustrated in (1) arrival of homeless Jew6 on refugee ship on
Palestine shore; (2) education and health for child victims of oppres-
sion; (3) training of refugee youth for new life on the land and (4)
extending Jewish agricultural settlement activities in cooperation with
Arab neighbors will be hailed as major American Jewish achievement
through the United Palestine Appeal.

until 4:30 p. m. When weather
permitted the children were taken
to the beach in buses. Lunch

twice a day. Each chid was
given a physical examination by
the Camp physician who was in

Camp to see that every child's
health was safely guarded.
Some of the activities taught

So that Others May Live
By Elsie Kronenfeld
1940 is here and has brought
with it, we hope, peace and happi-
ness for all the world. We hope
that the children of all the world
will not have the horrors to remem-
ber and color the rest of their
I.ves as have so many unfortun-
ates. Especially do we wish this
for our own children of Meier
Shfeyah for to some extent we.
Junior Hadassah, can alleviate
their troubles. We know the cour-
age and foresight of these child-
ren better than that of others
for they are our own. We know
how the 160 bays and girls of this
self-governing village chose to stay
ir. their small community fighting
for the future of coming young
people rather than vacate to plac-
es of safety when the Arabs loosen-
ed their fury last year. We know-
how these small folks go out each
day to till the soil and learn first
hand the lore of the earth. We
understand the inner strength
they must muster day after day
with which to cope with the prob-
lems of grown men and women.
These youngsers of between 10 and
16 years of age captured a spirit
that many of us younger folks
lost long ago. In the evening they
sing the ageless songs of their
people and play the old games and
dance the ancient dances. They
dont deserve fear and terror as
their daily bread. We, Junior
Hadassah. pray that in this year
we can save them from that.
The meeting this coming Mon-
day night will be in honor of the
paid up members. These girls
will sing the "Tree of Life" that
represents strength in membership.
The tree will then be sent to Pal-
estine to be hung in one of the
Junior Hadassah buildings. The
membership chairman and her com-
mittee: Jane Gershon and Ida
Safer, Betty and Eva Smith. Rose
Bushkoff, Fay Engel. and Ruthie
Bernstein, are planning thus part
of the program. The girls who
would like to sign their names
may have that right by paying up
their dues. Only paid up members
may be a branch of strength on

but there is no Festival th:it would
mark its or'g'nal dedication. We
mourn on the day that we left
our Holy Land but no celebrations
indicate when the city of Jericho
fell. This doe'" but effectively
indicate our firm resolve that on
every charred ruin we will erect
a new sanctuary. Therefore are
these days of mourning important
since they provide the means
whereby we renew our efforts to
build anew where death and de
traction held their previous sway
The first sorrowful Yahrzeit too
provides the means whereby we
renew our efforts in the building
anew where death and destruction
held their sway. Hence our
will launch a permanent study
class which will meet daily three
quarters of an hour before Mincha
and will commence on the first
Yahrzeit of our late and revered
brother. The Mishna group w II
also sponsor a Sefer Hachaim or
