SHOCHET, Circulation Manager Entered as second class mattei July 4, 1930, at the Post Office at Miami, Florida, under the Act of March 3, 1879 OFFICES IN PRINCIPAL FLORIDA CITIES One yen Six Months SUBSCRIPTION ... $2.00 ,.. $1.00 VOLUME 13—No. 11 MARCH 15, 1940 The Pope and Anti-Semitism The Jews will never forget Pope I'ius XI, who spoke out so forthrightly against racial laws in Italy, who denounced anti-Semitism and said thai "spiritually we are all Semites." His good right hand in formulating the Vatican's fearless policy was Cardinal Pacelli, who ii.is succeeded him as Pope Pius XII. Pope Pius XII has been moving cautiously, for this is time of war —a time when heads of religions and States must act with calm and consideration. Now Pius XII has given evidence that the Vatican's attitude towards racialism has not changed. Recently when Italy's new anti-Semitic laws went into effect, the Pontiff appointed Prof. Roberto Almagit, one of the victims of Fascist racial legislation, to restore ancient maps in the Vatican. It might not l>e stretching the facts too much to interpret this as a rebuke to Italian cinti-Semitism, a product of what the late Pope called "excessive nationalism" and of the influence of "a cross which is not the cross of God"—the swastika. Bishop Sheil of Chicago expressed to the United Jewish Appeal the Pope's thanks for the U. J. A.'s recent contribution for the aid of Catholic refugees: "... His Holiness wishes to express to the donors his deep appreciation of their generous and noble gift and tell them how deeply moved he was by the cooperation and good will between the Catholic and Jewish people which our interchange of letters so significantly revealed." "Cooperation and goodwill between the Catholic and Jewish people!" The Pope's phrase might well be borne in mind by a Catholic pries/ in Royal Oak, Michigan. B'NAI B'RITH UJjJB NOTES by Harold Turk Guest Columnist, Louis Heiman NATIONAL A. Z. A. SABBATH Sholem Lodge of B'nai B'rith has sponsored the organization of two A. Z. A. groups, one at Miami and the other at Miami Beach. Has its efforts in this regard paid any dividends? When a boy is initiated into A. '/.. A., the Junior Order of B'nai B'rith, he learns this creed: "JUDAISM—always to observe tftve tenets of my faith; ever to do justice, love, mercy, and walk humbly with the Lord my God." To learn it is not enough! He must practice it in his daily life. We are happy to report that our A. Z. A. boys are "practicing what they preach." On Friday, March 29th, there is celebrated National A. Z. A. Sabbath. This is an annual event recommended by the Supreme Advisory Council of Aleph Zadik Aleph of B'nai B'rith. The Miami Chapter has received permission from Beth David Congregation to celebrate National A. Z. A. Sabbath at their synagogue, while the Royal Palm Chapter at Miami Beach will celebrate National A. Z. A. Sabbath at Beth Jacob Congregation. Both groups intend to conduct the services, with a sermon to be rendered by one of the Alephs. It is the duty of all Ben Briths to be present at one or the other of the services, and join with them in the celebration of the National A. Z. A. Sabbath. Remember the date of Friday evening, March 29, 1940, and let's turn out en masse LEE ANNOUNCES CANDIDACY Tallahassee.—State Comptroller J. M. Lee yesterday filed in the Secretary of State's office to make the race to succeed himself. He gave newspapermen the following formal announcement of his candidacy in the Democratic primary on May 7.

Berman Paying our first call on a newly born baby recently, we pressed our noses against the glass "showwindow" of the hospital nursery and became so fascinated by the waving of pink arms and legs and the wrinkling up of the paradoxically old looking new faces that we didn't notice the three year old brother of the object of our visit until he tugged ini] atiently at our hand. "You know what I'm going to do when my mommie brings my now sister home from the hospital?" he announced. "I'm going to sec President Roosevelt." Of course, there was no m HT ility '•!' the child's taking a trip to Washington, than there is of our going to Timbnrtoo, but it not the obvious untruth of his %  :ent that shocked us. it was the situation it revealed. A situation so intolerable for the child that he had invented the story as his only means of escape from it Like many a child who has once been the center of attraction for the entire family, he had been shoved into the background in the excitement of his new sister's arrival, and. like many a child unprepared for this usurpation of his place, he couldn't "take it." His attitude made us realize the importance of handling with care the only child who suddenly finds himself the older child. He must be prepared ahead of time for the arrival of the new baby. Afterwards, a little extra caressing the only love a young child can understand—should he lavished on Junior. When the new baby is beginning to walk, to interfere with his older brother's play, to annex his toys, the jealousy between the two children, which may have been latent during the younger child's infancy, is apt to result in a go id deal of friction. To prepare foi this period, the older child should be taught to be as independent as possible, and. through praise should be given pride in his newly acquired ability to dress himself and to get along without the undivided attention to which he was accustomed before the baby's arrival. Many quarrels may be avoided by providing for Junior's new play equipment in which his younger brother and sister will not be interested. Of course, there are bound to be some playthings of Junior's which will appeal to the baby. The older child, how. ever, should not be forced to give up his belongings to the younger because he is "only a baby" or will become resentful while his young brother or sister will become a tyrant. If Junior defends his playthings by slapping or shoving the grasping baby, grownups should not interfere. Since a toddler's attention is easily diverted, his own toys can be substituted for his brother's without causing much of a disturbance, and he will soon learn to play only with his own toys. Of course, the cooperation of every member of the family is essential, otherwise the children will become confused. such office, characterized by a firm stand for a fair and impartial collection of every dollar of revenue legally due the state and its subdivisions from persons and property, and the disbursement of same only for necessary purposes and in strict accordance with law.

Page Six THE JEWISH FLORIDIAN Y. M. H. A. (BT HARRY SCHWARTZ) VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE You have heard us speak, from time to time, about our Vocational Guidance Department and about the wonderful work its director, Mr. Joseph A. Berman, has been doing. Few there are who realize what Mr. Berman has accomplished in this department in the short while that it has been created. A Vocational Guidance Clinic is conducted by Mr. Berman every Monday night at the "Y" in which he interviews many people. Over 200 men and women have registered in this department and 50 per cent have been placed in vocations suitable to their respective fields. When one considers that there are over 20,000 types of jobs, one will, at once, realize the magnitude of the work that Mr. Berman is doing. The "Y" receives calls daily from business houses and professional men asking Mr. Berman to recommend people from his list for jobs. As a matter of fact there are times when we receive calls from employers and we cannot fill them because we are unChairman of the Board of Directors. Incidentally, Dave Lemelman has just entered the Jackson Memorial Hospital to recuperate from a severe illness. We hope that Dave will get well quickly as we need his counsel and advice. STEPHEN FOSTER MEMORIAL NIGHT Our Executive Director, Maurice Grossman, has received an official communication from Miss Klea E. Houghtaling, chairman of • the Dade County Stephen Foster Committee, in which she states that the committee will cooperate with us on Monday evening, March 25th to celebrate Stephen Foster Memorial Week. Mr, Grossman, who is a member of the Stephen Foster Committee has been invited to be the principal speaker at a luncheon to be held at the Graylyn Hotel on Tuesday, March 19th, We extend to all you n : ce folks an invitation to attend this luncheon and partake in a most interesting pro. gram.

As previously stated %  • %%  such jobs. Mr. Berman will not recommend any one for any job until he has given them an aptitude test.' This is just one of the many pro. jects that the "Y" is doing for the benefit of the community. As evidence of what different firms think of this department the following letter ( is self-explanatory: CASA CARRIB Mr. J. Berman, c!o Y. M. H. A., 1567 S. W. 5th St., Miami, Florida. Dear Mr. Berman: We wish to thank you for having Miss Rothschild apply for a position with Us in the capacity of secretary. We are very well satisfied with the work she has already done, and hope that we can say the same in the future. We think it is a wonderful thing that you are doing at the "Y" and at this time we wish to extend to you our best wishes for its success. Sincerely yours, CASA CARRIB. L. Willens. J. R. Shields. NEW BOARD MEMBERS We are proud to announce that at a recent meeting of the Board of Directors, Mr. Joseph A. Berman, our Vocational Guidance Director, and Mr. David Lemelman, prominent local attorney, were chosen members of our board to fill the vacancies caused by the elevation of Lou Safan to the Secretaryship and Dr. Beckman as the feature of the affair will be the coronation of a "Y" King to be known as Mr. Y.

GOLDEN BALL CAGERS March 19th is the date, folks, to watch the "Y" Cagers in the Golden Ball Tourney at the Y. M. C. A. That night marks the beginning of the Golden Ball Tournament to determine the champion basketball team in this vicinity.

NEW ATHLETIC CLUB Last Sunday evening the Y. If, H. A. played host to the newlyformed Athletic Team known as the Yacs. This group is composed of boys between the ages of 14 to 17 years and is sponsored by Lou Safan, chairman of the Athletic Committee. A program is being arranged combining the many sports in which these young men will participate. NEWS ROUND TOWN We certainly had an interesting meeting at the Scout Room last week of the members of the Governors' Club. Bill Shayne presided and the topic of discussion was the new improvements in the "Y." But more about this next week. Talking about Bill Shayne, lie informed us the other day that he is continuing with his plans for a monster political smoker to be held in the "Y" some time in April. He again has asked us to urge all our members to register for the coming elections. Remember, vote for whom you please, but register and vote. Don't wait to be asked. Join the Y. M. H. A. now.

Tri City Convention and Dance. March 18—Jr. "V" Meeting. -March 111—Stephen Foster Committee Luncheon, Graylyn Hotel; society MOIS1IE OYSHER FEATURED IN JEWISH TALKIE Sincerity in faith is the keynote of the picture "Overture to Glory" an all Jewish Talkie with English titles, opening Wednesday at the Plaza Theatre, Biscayne Street, Miami Beach, featuring the well known star Moishe Oysher. In the picture sincerity is so beautifully portrayed that it brings the impression of sincerity in faith. The theme of the picture deals with a Jewish Cantor with a beautiful voice chanting the liturgk melodies in the Synagogue, the story of success, a love for his religion and people, one that nevei lessens or wanes during the entirety of his life, coming to a dramatii*climax. The acting of Moishe ()ys\icr. who plays the principal character of the Cantor, is quoted as superb. His voice is strong and melodious and it is a picture that will linger long in one's memory. • WORKERS ALLIANCE ORGANIZED Tile Jewish National Worker's Alliance of America, with headquarters in New York City, and a membership of more than 20,000 recently organized a branch in i Miami.

We therefore urge parents to see the wisdom of actively participating, and sending their children to the Talmud Torah.

PURIM DINNER AND CHAIN FIND We wish to advise that our annual Purim dinner will take place Sunday evening, March 24 at Ritter's Alamae Hotel, Miami Beach. We are very anxious to have you as our guest that evening, without charge to you. and for that reason we emphasize the need of completing your "Chain Fund" of Sfi.OO which should be the pleasurable obligation of every member of our Sisterhood. Irrespective of the means of raising the amount which is entirely in your hands, you arc aware that the "Chain Fund" of the Sisterhood comprises the bulk of the quota for the year. Will you not become an active link of that "Chain Fund"? We are positive that you will not disappoint us. MEETING The regular meeting of the Sisterhood will be held Wednesday, March 20 at 2 PM. All members are urged to be present. In this world of the usual it is always the unusual that catches our eye. That which we hear repeatedly; that which we see time after time soon ceases to occupy our attention. Even those things which affect us most can become usual and sink into the periphery of our attention. So it is not strange that we are beginning to regard many things as commonplace which such a short time ago brought horror and pity to mind and voice. The majority of us are forgetting today just how bad conditions in Europe are. Through continuous repetition the picture is weakening. The first shock of dictators and their "paths to glory" is over. We are for the most part sticking in our memories the thoughts of European waste. We are taking once again America and freedom for granted. The pictures of refugees and their stories are beginning to be merely glanced at. They are so common! No man's land—the lesser hell between the greater—is becoming a memory of the past. It can't happen here— we don't see or feel it—we are neglecting to remember it and worry. Directly there is comparatively little we can do against the evil forces that continue to hold sway. But as before we can support to the fullest extent those organizations engaged in carrying on the work of relief and rehabilitation. We of Hadassah are carrying on our task of helping Jewish youth find refuge and a haven. To those young women interested in belonging to a cultural group with humanitarian purposes we eagely extend a welcoming hand. To the men and women of the community we say there is work for all. There is no lull for us! We note with interest that many of those who have lived in our midst without becoming citizens are beginning to realize what being an American citizen meansThese people are attending Americanization classes and studying toward becoming American citizens so that they will have a right to have a voice in the government of this country. We of Hadassah want to let them know we appreciate their work and efforts. We know they will amply be repaid in personal satisfaction and freedom from one kind of fear. We know the benefits in store for them as American citizens. We only regret that more people are not taking their opportunity to become a real part of this country. The meeting last Monday. March 11th. was a success in every way. We had a lot of visitors who were very welcome as they always are. This coming Monday night. March 18, is the big night of the membership dance. Don't forget to come. All it costs you is your two dollar dues. If you would like to come and haven't paid your dues you may pay at the door. If you would like a date call Janie Gannon at 2-1088 and we are sure she will have someone to fill the bill. Betty Lasky we are so proud of you!

RBFUA SHEI.EMA We send our best wishes for a speedy and complete recovery to Mrs. A. Pepper who is now in Tallahassee Notes by Bob Greenberg The dedication of Tallahassee's Temple Israel on February 28rd marks another milestone in the progress of West Florida's Jewry. The synagogue, a handsome, modern edifice, is the result of three year-' preparation on the part of the Tallahassee Jewish commun. ity. Several years ago, the Jews of Tallahassee, realizing the need of a place of worship, congregated and subscribed the sum of $5,000 toward such a building. This being an inadequate amount, however, it was set aside until BUI li a time when sufficient funds might.be added to it. and construe'.ion begun. In 1939 a lodge of the B'nai B'rith was organized in Tallahassee and interest in the temple revived. This same year. Mrs. William Levy, former permanent, and now a winter resident of Tallahassee, graciously donated a site for the building near the Florida State College for Women campus. With this as an incentive, the community at once went to work. and quickly raised the remaining $10,000 needed for the construction. In appreciation of Mrs. Levy's gift, the community center was named in memory of her departed husband, the William Levy Community Center. The dedication services of the temple were impressive, with prominent representative speakers participating in the program. Rabbi Morris A. Skop of Orlando, conducted the religious service. and Dr. Victor E.

W. 5th Street who came home from the hospital last week. MIZRACHI DISTRICT FEATURES RABBI SADOWSKV Rabbi Sadowsky of Rochester.

The Pope and Anti-Semitism
The Jews will never forget Pope I'ius XI, who spoke out so forth-
rightly against racial laws in Italy, who denounced anti-Semitism and
said thai "spiritually we are all Semites." His good right hand in
formulating the Vatican's fearless policy was Cardinal Pacelli, who
ii.is succeeded him as Pope Pius XII.
Pope Pius XII has been moving cautiously, for this is time of war
a time when heads of religions and States must act with calm and
consideration. Now Pius XII has given evidence that the Vatican's at-
titude towards racialism has not changed.
Recently when Italy's new anti-Semitic laws went into effect, the
Pontiff appointed Prof. Roberto Almagit, one of the victims of Fascist
racial legislation, to restore ancient maps in the Vatican. It might not
l>e stretching the facts too much to interpret this as a rebuke to Italian
cinti-Semitism, a product of what the late Pope called "excessive na-
tionalism" and of the influence of "a cross which is not the cross of
God"the swastika.
Bishop Sheil of Chicago expressed to the United Jewish Appeal the
Pope's thanks for the U. J. A.'s recent contribution for the aid of
Catholic refugees: "... His Holiness wishes to express to the donors
his deep appreciation of their generous and noble gift and tell them
how deeply moved he was by the cooperation and good will between the
Catholic and Jewish people which our interchange of letters so signifi-
cantly revealed."
"Cooperation and goodwill between the Catholic and Jewish peo-
ple!" The Pope's phrase might well be borne in mind by a Catholic
pries/ in Royal Oak, Michigan.

NATIONAL A. Z. A. SABBATH
Sholem Lodge of B'nai B'rith
has sponsored the organization of
two A. Z. A. groups, one at Miami
and the other at Miami Beach.
Has its efforts in this regard paid
any dividends?
When a boy is initiated into A.
'/.. A., the Junior Order of B'nai
B'rith, he learns this creed:
"JUDAISMalways to observe
tftve tenets of my faith; ever to
do justice, love, mercy, and walk
humbly with the Lord my God."
To learn it is not enough! He
must practice it in his daily life.
We are happy to report that our
A. Z. A. boys are "practicing what
they preach."
On Friday, March 29th, there is
celebrated National A. Z. A. Sab-
bath. This is an annual event
recommended by the Supreme Ad-
visory Council of Aleph Zadik
Aleph of B'nai B'rith. The Miami
Chapter has received permission
from Beth David Congregation to
celebrate National A. Z. A. Sab-
bath at their synagogue, while
the Royal Palm Chapter at Miami
Beach will celebrate National A.
Z. A. Sabbath at Beth Jacob Con-
gregation. Both groups intend to
conduct the services, with a ser-
mon to be rendered by one of the
Alephs.
It is the duty of all Ben Briths
to be present at one or the other
of the services, and join with them
in the celebration of the National
A. Z. A. Sabbath. Remember the
date of Friday evening, March 29,

CHILD GUIDANCE
By Joseph A. Berman
Paying our first call on a newly
born baby recently, we pressed our
noses against the glass "show-
window" of the hospital nursery
and became so fascinated by the
waving of pink arms and legs and
the wrinkling up of the paradoxi-
cally old looking new faces that
we didn't notice the three year
old brother of the object of our
visit until he tugged ini] atiently
at our hand.
"You know what I'm going to
do when my mommie brings my
now sister home from the hospit-
al?" he announced. "I'm going to
sec President Roosevelt."
Of course, there was no m ht
ility '!' the child's taking a
trip to Washington, than there is
of our going to Timbnrtoo, but it
not the obvious untruth of his
:ent that shocked us. it was
the situation it revealed. A situ-
ation so intolerable for the child
that he had invented the story as
his only means of escape from it
Like many a child who has once
been the center of attraction for
the entire family, he had been
shoved into the background in the
excitement of his new sister's ar-
rival, and. like many a child un-
prepared for this usurpation of his
place, he couldn't "take it." His
attitude made us realize the im-
portance of handling with care the
only child who suddenly finds him-
self the older child.
He must be prepared ahead of
time for the arrival of the new
baby. Afterwards, a little extra
caressing the only love a young
child can understandshould he
lavished on Junior.
When the new baby is beginning
to walk, to interfere with his old-
er brother's play, to annex his
toys, the jealousy between the two
children, which may have been lat-
ent during the younger child's in-
fancy, is apt to result in a go id
deal of friction. To prepare foi
this period, the older child should
be taught to be as independent as
possible, and. through praise
should be given pride in his newly
acquired ability to dress himself
and to get along without the un-
divided attention to which he was
accustomed before the baby's ar-
rival. Many quarrels may be
avoided by providing for Junior's
new play equipment in which his
younger brother and sister will
not be interested. Of course, there
are bound to be some playthings
of Junior's which will appeal to
the baby. The older child, how.
ever, should not be forced to give
up his belongings to the younger
because he is "only a baby" or will
become resentful while his young
brother or sister will become a ty-
rant. If Junior defends his play-
things by slapping or shoving the
grasping baby, grownups should
not interfere. Since a toddler's
attention is easily diverted, his
own toys can be substituted for his
brother's without causing much of
a disturbance, and he will soon
learn to play only with his own
toys. Of course, the cooperation
of every member of the family is
essential, otherwise the children
will become confused.

TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE
(BY PHINEAS J. BIROk)
Nazti Stuff
Is Hitler, also, like so many of his adjutants, building up reserves
Outside f Germany against the day when the Germans will at last kick
out the Nazis? .... The suspicion is raised by the fact that before the
war broke out the Eher Verlag. of which Adolf is the head and the pub-
lications of which include "Metal Kampf," used to ask English pur-
chasers to pay their bills to the forms account in the London office of
bank of one of the new neutral countries.....\nd have we told you
of the latest refinement of cruelty hatched in the fertile brains of the
Gestapo? ... They blindfold their prisoner, stretch out his arms, and
I hen put a pound of butter in one hand and a pound of steak in the
Other .... Then they remove the blindfoldand the poor victim drops
dead from shock .... It's "<- to the U. 8- Navy, but the Nazis have
been telling the world that a British battleship has sunk an American
submarine named of all things"The Madison Square Garden" .
Needless to say, nothing of the sort has happened, and no submarine of
thai name exists.....Anything to stir up bad blood, is the good old
Nazi slogan ....
This and That
N body is paying much attention to the protests against Britain
in connection with the stoppage of land sales in Palestine .... Its be-
cause England foresaw that the Jews cannot help supporting her in
the present war that she timed this inhuman regulation so perfectly
. Before his return to London Dr. Chaim Weizmann arranged for
the publication of a book that most probably will be entitled "The .lev."
It will contain contributions by such observers of Pierre van Paaasen,
Dorothy Thompson. John Gunther, Thomas Mann, etc.....A compre-
hensive preface will be written by Dr. Weizmann himself .... Th's
book is intended to serve as the Jewish Blue-and-Whito Book to be
handed to the statesmen who some day are going to sit around ;1 e
peace conference table .... Yehudi Menuhin, whose relations with
things Jewish have been rather strained, has now agreed to play h S
first New York concert this year for the Palestine Conger ;.' ire of
Music .... He is not only contributing his services and buying a box f r
his family, but is paying for his own stai i "iii on the age ....
Ovei heard with our own ears, so hep us, the i sid light on i! >
lives of the latter-day Marranos: "They keep a strictly kosher hous*,
and don't even answer the phone on Saturdaysbut they g > to cha] '.
every Sunday morning" ....
Listen Here
Danton Walker claims that there's something to the rumor that
Myron Taylor will take up with the Pope the silencing of Father Coug'i.
lin It seems that, w(iat with all the excitement of an election
coming. Father Coughlin's speeches might produce nasty moods ....
Have you heard that New Jersey, in certain sections of which the Bund
waa doing quite well for some time is now becoming the center of a Ku
Klux Klan revival .... Wincln'' onders whether a certain lady now
in Hollywood isn't Hitler's friend the Princess HoJicnlohc. and whether
she isn't showing an undue interest in California airplane production
. The resourceful press agent for "Margin for Error" thought he
had a bright scheme, which involved the distribution of millions of
match booklets bearing the legend "Wat^h Hitler Burn" .... The id. i
was to make each match a miniature figure of the Fuehrer .... B.it
to l.eep out of international hot water ....
Lend Us Your Ears
There have been all kinds of prophecies about what Governor
Lehman will do after his present term expires .... The latest is that
he is tempted to accept the nominationwhich in his case would mean
the election to the Mayoralty of New York City .... We are stiil

COUNCIL OF JEWISH WOMEN
An urgent notice to all American
residents in our midsts. There
are now about ninety bills in

(BT HARRY SCHWARTZ)
VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE
You have heard us speak, from
time to time, about our Vocational
Guidance Department and about
the wonderful work its director,
Mr. Joseph A. Berman, has been
doing. Few there are who realize
what Mr. Berman has accom-
plished in this department in the
short while that it has been creat-
ed.
A Vocational Guidance Clinic is
conducted by Mr. Berman every
Monday night at the "Y" in which
he interviews many people. Over
200 men and women have regis-
tered in this department and 50
per cent have been placed in voca-
tions suitable to their respective
fields. When one considers that
there are over 20,000 types of jobs,
one will, at once, realize the mag-
nitude of the work that Mr. Ber-
man is doing.
The "Y" receives calls daily
from business houses and profes-
sional men asking Mr. Berman to
recommend people from his list
for jobs. As a matter of fact
there are times when we receive
calls from employers and we can-
not fill them because we are un-
Chairman of the Board of Direct-
ors. Incidentally, Dave Lemel-
man has just entered the Jackson
Memorial Hospital to recuperate
from a severe illness. We hope
that Dave will get well quickly as
we need his counsel and advice.
STEPHEN FOSTER MEMORIAL
NIGHT
Our Executive Director, Maurice
Grossman, has received an official
communication from Miss Klea E.
Houghtaling, chairman of the
Dade County Stephen Foster Com-
mittee, in which she states that the
committee will cooperate with us
on Monday evening, March 25th to
celebrate Stephen Foster Memor-
ial Week.
Mr, Grossman, who is a mem-
ber of the Stephen Foster Com-
mittee has been invited to be the
principal speaker at a luncheon
to be held at the Graylyn Hotel
on Tuesday, March 19th, We ex-
tend to all you n:ce folks an invita-
tion to attend this luncheon and
partake in a most interesting pro.
gram.

"Y" are busy preparing for the

such jobs. Mr. Berman will not
recommend any one for any job
until he has given them an apti-
tude test.'
This is just one of the many pro.
jects that the "Y" is doing for
the benefit of the community.
As evidence of what different
firms think of this department
the following letter (is self-ex-
planatory:
CASA CARRIB

Dear Mr. Berman:

MOIS1IE OYSHER FEATURED
IN JEWISH TALKIE
Sincerity in faith is the keynote
of the picture "Overture to Glory"
an all Jewish Talkie with English
titles, opening Wednesday at the
Plaza Theatre, Biscayne Street,
Miami Beach, featuring the well
known star Moishe Oysher. In
the picture sincerity is so beauti-
fully portrayed that it brings the
impression of sincerity in faith.
The theme of the picture deals
with a Jewish Cantor with a beau-
tiful voice chanting the liturgk
melodies in the Synagogue, the
story of success, a love for his re-
ligion and people, one that nevei
lessens or wanes during the en-
tirety of his life, coming to a
dramatii*climax. The acting of
Moishe ()ys\icr. who plays the
principal character of the Cantor,
is quoted as superb. His voice is
strong and melodious and it is a
picture that will linger long in
one's memory.

Talmud-Torah: It is gratifying
to see the continued attendance
at the Hebrew Classes throughout
the week. We admit emphatically
that Sunday School training for
our children is certainly not suffi-

therefore urge parents to see the
wisdom of actively participating,
and sending their children to the
Talmud Torah.

PURIM DINNER AND CHAIN
FIND
We wish to advise that our an-

Sunday evening, March 24 at Rit-

We are very anxious to have you
as our guest that evening, without
charge to you. and for that rea-
son we emphasize the need of
completing your "Chain Fund" of
Sfi.OO which should be the pleasur-
able obligation of every member
of our Sisterhood.
Irrespective of the means of
raising the amount which is en-
tirely in your hands, you arc
aware that the "Chain Fund" of
the Sisterhood comprises the bulk
of the quota for the year. Will
you not become an active link of
that "Chain Fund"? We are pos-
itive that you will not disappoint
us.
MEETING
The regular meeting of the Sis-
terhood will be held Wednesday,
March 20 at 2 P- M. All members
are urged to be present.
In this world of the usual it is
always the unusual that catches
our eye. That which we hear re-
peatedly; that which we see time
after time soon ceases to occupy
our attention. Even those things
which affect us most can become
usual and sink into the periphery
of our attention. So it is not
strange that we are beginning to
regard many things as common-
place which such a short time ago
brought horror and pity to mind
and voice.
The majority of us are forget-
ting today just how bad conditions
in Europe are. Through continu-
ous repetition the picture is weak-
ening. The first shock of dictat-
ors and their "paths to glory" is
over. We are for the most part
sticking in our memories the
thoughts of European waste. We
are taking once again America and
freedom for granted. The pictures
of refugees and their stories are
beginning to be merely glanced at.
They are so common! No man's
landthe lesser hell between the
greateris becoming a memory of
the past. It can't happen here
we don't see or feel itwe are ne-
glecting to remember it and wor-
ry. Directly there is comparative-
ly little we can do against the
evil forces that continue to hold
sway. But as before we can sup-
port to the fullest extent those or-
ganizations engaged in carrying
on the work of relief and rehabil-
itation. We of Hadassah are car-
rying on our task of helping Jew-
ish youth find refuge and a haven.
To those young women interested
in belonging to a cultural group
with humanitarian purposes we
eagely extend a welcoming hand.
To the men and women of the
community we say there is work
for all. There is no lull for us!
We note with interest that many
of those who have lived in our
midst without becoming citizens
are beginning to realize what be-
ing an American citizen means-
These people are attending Amer-
icanization classes and studying
toward becoming American citi-
zens so that they will have a
right to have a voice in the gov-
ernment of this country. We of
Hadassah want to let them know
we appreciate their work and ef-
forts. We know they will amply
be repaid in personal satisfaction
and freedom from one kind of
fear. We know the benefits in
store for them as American citi-
zens. We only regret that more
people are not taking their op-
portunity to become a real part of
this country.
The meeting last Monday. March
11th. was a success in every way.
We had a lot of visitors who were
very welcome as they always are.
This coming Monday night.
March 18, is the big night of the
membership dance. Don't forget
to come. All it costs you is your
two dollar dues. If you would like
to come and haven't paid your
dues you may pay at the door. If
you would like a date call Janie
Gannon at 2-1088 and we are sure
she will have someone to fill the
bill.
Betty Lasky we are so proud of
you! We know that you will make
a grand vice president of the
Southern Regional Junior Hadas-
sah.

Tallahassee Notes
by Bob Greenberg
The dedication of Tallahassee's
Temple Israel on February 28rd
marks another milestone in the
progress of West Florida's Jewry.
The synagogue, a handsome, mod-
ern edifice, is the result of three
year-' preparation on the part of
the Tallahassee Jewish commun.
ity.
Several years ago, the Jews of
Tallahassee, realizing the need of
a place of worship, congregated
and subscribed the sum of $5,000
toward such a building. This being
an inadequate amount, however, it
was set aside until BUI li a time
when sufficient funds might.be
added to it. and construe'.ion be-
gun. In 1939 a lodge of the B'nai
B'rith was organized in Tallahas-
see and interest in the temple re-
vived. This same year. Mrs. Wil-
liam Levy, former permanent, and
now a winter resident of Talla-
hassee, graciously donated a site
for the building near the Florida
State College for Women campus.
With this as an incentive, the
community at once went to work.
and quickly raised the remaining
$10,000 needed for the construc-
tion. In appreciation of Mrs.
Levy's gift, the community center
was named in memory of her de-
parted husband, the William Levy
Community Center.
The dedication services of the
temple were impressive, with
prominent representative speakers
participating in the program.
Rabbi Morris A. Skop of Orlando,
conducted the religious service.
and Dr. Victor E. Reichert of the
Rockdale Avenue Temple, Cincin-
?1 again be held this year in the victoria Hospital; to Mrs Phil
dmmg room of the Astor Hotel, Berkowitz and Mr's M. Rosentha,
Tuesday afternoon, April 2 1940, who are at home It fa
from 2:00 to 5:30 o'clock. Mrs. B.
Silverman has graciously consent-
ed to accept the chairmanship and
that good health will soon be
theirs.
We are praying for the recovery
of Mr. A. Katz, of 1755 S. W. 5th
Street who came home from the
hospital last week.
