Though a succession of antiSemitic governments in Hungary have decreed enough anti-Jewish laws within recent years to preclude any possibility of a normal life for the overwhelming majority of Hungary's Jews, never before has Nazi influence been permitted to play so dominant a role in the domestic policy of the country. Since the cession of Transylvania to Hungary, local Nazis have been claiming credit for the bloodless coup. The German minority in Hungary has been given increasing liberties, while at the same time, the Jewish minority has been paralyzed with harsher restrictions. Hungary's anti-Jewish measures have been harsh but very little publicized, overshadowed by the more violent mouthings and actions taken in Berlin. One essential difference between the brand of anti-Semitism in Hungary and in Germany is the fact that as far as can be ascertained there has been no actual physical violence against Jews in Hungary. At the present writing Jews in Budapest are fearful of a general order compelling all Jewish males, between the ages of 18 and 60 to serve with compulsory labor battalions. More than 100,000 Jews, including shopkeepers, intellectuals. lawyers, doctors have already been assigned to forced labor camps. Many of these Jews were sent to farms for special work and forced to live in shacks and stables, frequently without even straw to sleep on. Many of those now forced to do compulsory labor were recently demobilized from the Hungarian army. They work in their own clothes, but the Government provides a uniform cap. The chiefs of the compulsory labor camps are "Aryan" but some of the subcommanders are Jewish. JEWISH EDUCATION MONTH TO BEGIN New York (WNS)—Jewish EdUCation Month, organized io arouse community interest in Jewish education and to spur enrollment of Jewish children in Jewish schools throughout Greater New York, will be opened September 24 at a Town Hall mass meeting, it was announced by the Jewish Education Committee. Lay and religious leaders from every section of New York will attend the meeting and adopt plans to launch the enrollment campaign throughout the five boroughs. Representatives of local and national organizations, leading educators, delegates from schools and Jewish community centers, and spokesmen for youth groups and adult study organizations also will be present, according to Dr. Alexander M. Dushkin, executive director of the Jewish Education Commit tee. [ FASCIST OFFICIAL LAUDS COUGHLIN IM. TO TEL Hill BOMBING 85 JEWISH REFUGEES BARRED FROM MEXICO Norfolk, Va. (WNS)—Eightyfive German-Jewish refugees, refused admittance to Mexico were permitted to land here as visitors after a four-day wait in the harbor. It wat announced that the refugees will be permitted to remain here long enough to arrange passage to South American countries. The refugees embarked on the Portuguese steamship Quazna at Lisbon, equipped with Mexican visas. President Lazaro Cardenas of Mexico ordered the ship to leave the port of Vera Cruz. New York (WNS)—Voicing the indignation of American Zionists over the bombing of Tel Aviv by Italian airplanes, Edmund L. Kaufmann, president of the Zionist Organization of America, declared that "the wanton and indiscriminate bombing of the defenseless city by Fascist messengers of death" will be answered by American Jews with redoubled efforts for the upbuilding of the Jewish Homeland in Palestine. In his statement, Mr. Kaufmann said that the Zionist Organization will do everything within its power to aid in the rehabilitation of the victims of the bombing attack, as well as to ensure the continued upbuilding of the Jewish Homeland in the face of all obstacles. "American Zionists," Mr. Kaufmann said, "will gladly assume the added responsibilites thrust upon them to help rebuild what has been destroyed by the fury of the aggressor. The Jewish community of Palestine has aroused the admiration of the world by the fortitude and courage displayed in the face of the gravest danger during the recent years of unrest. The casutlaies that have been exacted upon innocent women and children in the bombing outrage last Monday will not deter the people of Tel Aviv nor the entire community of Palestine in their unswerving determination to carry on until the ultimate goal has been attained. The soil of Palestine has been hallowed by the blood of the numberless Jewish martyrs who have given their lives in defense of their sacred heritage. Their sacrifices will not be in vain. Tel Aviv (WNS-Palcor Agency) —A nautical exhibition staged here by Palestine's various seafaring societies was hailed as displaying the Yishuv's readiness to participate in naval maneuvers whenever called upon to do so by Greatt Britain, by Moshe Shertek, head of the Political Department of the Jewish Agency. Mr. Shertek expressed the Agency's gratification thus afforded of the unity attained by the various maritime organizations within the framework of the Jewish National Home. The exercises on the Yarkon River in northern Tel Aviv attracted a large and festive crowd determined to cheer each new evidence of the Yishuv's grow ing stature without any outward intrusion of last Monday's grim tragedy from which this city is even now bending every effort to emerge. But memories of the unprovoked enemy attack made even more keen appreciation of the latent defensive qualities inherent in the display sponsored by the Zebulun Seafarers' Society, the maritime branch of the Hapoel Sports Association, the Jewish Scouts Association's branch of Sea Scouts and the Haifa Technical School and held under the auspices of the Jewish Agency and the Jewish Maritime League. Four hundred members of these organizations took part in the varied program that displayed their skill in handling fifty racing, sailing and life boats. London (WNS)—Robert Farinacci. former secretary general of the Fascist party in Italy, writ, ing in his Cremona newspaper, "Re) ime Fascista," lauded Father Coughlin's understanding and sympathy of Fascist principles." •Father Coughlin takes a firm stand against Jawish democratic 'propaganda in the United States," \ the Fascist functionary said. "Naturally all anglophiles headjed by Roosevelt and the reneigade Fiorello LaGuardia fight against Coughlin." "Never before has Coughlin taken such a strong stand. Coughlin will be compensated for the bitterness which he is made to undergo by tomorrow's triumph when a just God will make the eyes of those who are blind see facts. "Then Coughlin will be pointed out to the world's honest peoples as one of the most strenI uous defenders of truth, justice and Catholicism." NEW RESTRICTIONS MADE FOR SLOVAKIA London (WNS)—The sorelypressed Jews of Nazi-controlled Slovakia, denationalized and deprived of the right to work, faced additional curbs this week. In one town, according to latest reports, Jews are not permitted to reside on certain streets.: In other places, Jewish housewives may do their shopping only during designated hours, at which time generally there is no food left. In addition to government laws regarding Jews, various localities have formulated their own anti-Semitic regulations. In one town, for instance, Jews may appear on the streets only at certain hours. Virtually all of Slovakia's Jewish lawyers and physicians have been forbidden to practice their professions. JEWISH SOLDIERS OBTAIN FURLOUGHS New York (WNS) — Orders have been issued by the War and Navy Departments granting furloughs to soldiers and sailors of the Jewish faith during the High Holidays, it was announced by Colonel Julius Ochs Adler. Geneva (WNS)—The smashing of windows and pillaging of Jew. ish shops continued in certain sections of un-occupied France and Algiers with the Petain government making no outward attempts to curb the anti-Semitic {agitators, it was reported here. According to reports, the antiJewish rioters "acted according to concerted plans," substantiating the belief that the demonstrations had been organized in advance. Last week Jacques Doriet. who is rapidly assuming the role in unoccupied France of that played in Germany by Julius Streicher, had boasted that his followers were organizing anti-Jewish demonstrations in French cities for the purpose of forcing the government to "settle definitely the Jewish problem:" In his latest diatribe, Doriet announced he and his followers were praying for a Nazi victory over Great Britain. A British victory, France's No. 1 Jewbaiter warned, would result in the Jews taking over Franco once more. "Jewish finance," Doriet said, "would choke us with its corruption. Freemasonry would reestablish its dictatorship. Plutocracy would reign as master, and our national independence would not be re-established. For France would officially become then the first dominion of his British majesty, whereas until yesterday, we were that only un. officially." Meanwhile, it was learned that Leon Blum, twice Premier of France and former leader of the French Socialist party, has been arrested and "administratively interned" at Chateau Chazeron. OP SAVE MANY LIVES Tel Aviv (WNS-Palcor Agency)—The work of the A. R. P. I workers, the nurses of the Red Shield of David, the firefighters assisted by the city police, and the British soldiers spending their leave here, was uniformly devoted and efficient. A few fires | which broke out after a number of houses had been damaged were quickly brought under control. The public maintained calm. The civil defense services had acquitted themselves well in their first test. Medical workers of the Hadassah Hospital arrived promptly at the bombed areas, and with quiet dispatch helped rescue wounded from the shattered buildings. Shortly after the all-clear signal had sounded, as most of the city went back to work, long queues of blood donors lined the walk leading to the hospital. Their blood enabled the doctors to save the lives of many of the more seriously injured. The bombs fell close by the still uncompleted new home of the Habima Art Theater, at the head of Rothschild Boulevard in the heart of the eity, but the building escaped damage. Eliezer Kaplan, Dr. Bernard Joseph and Isaac ben Zvi, who rushed here immediately after the raid, represented the Jewish Agency and the Vaad Leumi in an interview with Chief Secretary John S. MacPherson. The representatives of the Jewish I community discussed new defense measures which can be taken against possible future attacks, and steps now to be adopted for the relief of the distressed who fell victim to the raid. A fresh section of Tel Aviv's new cemetery was opened to receive the bodies of victims of the lltaliar air raid. Scores of thousands attended the first 72 Jew. ] ish funerals held at midday. Among those paying honor to I the dead were delegations from 'every section of the country, representatives of the Government, the British army and national institutions. Also sharing in the grief of the crowds who lined the streets as the procession passed were a number of Arabs, led by Acting Mayor Abdul Raouf el Bitar of Jaffa. Meanwhile, the British Red Cross and the Order of Saint John in Palestine maintained by the British community under the chairmanship of Lady MacMichael, wife of the High Commissioner, sent 500 pounds sterling for the relief of the victims of the Italian air raid. New York (WNS)—A resolution pledging complete cooperation with the President's national defense program was adopted by more than 100 delegates ati tending the two-day convention [of the Assembly of Hebrew Orthodox Rabbis at the Hotel 1 Sharon.

SEPTEMBER 20. 1940 VOLUME 13 NUMBER 38 A SPARK— R E K I N D L E D Once again a spark has been ignited wherein the future destiny of Greater Miami appears in the distant horizon to be much lighter—more possible—more definite. More definite than previously by virtue of the fact that those in whose hands and thoughts this spark has been rekindled this time are those in whose ability we place confidence. By their past actions have they shown far-sightedness and determination to carry through to completion, their undertakings. A committee is being formed by a group of communityminded citizens who will make a thorough survey and investigate Greater Miami's local needs among which includes a Jewish Community Center, which would serve as a meeting place for many organizations, as well as a recreational and educational center; the formation of a Jewish education system together with the ultimate purpose of creating a central Greater Miami Bureau of Jewish Education; the creation of a unified Talmud Torah and additional local activity having in mind the creation of a vocational guidance bureau, and an augmented local committee for Civic Protective and Defense measures. After the survey is completed, the committee will present facts determined by the investigation to the Budget Committee of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation and ask for consideration by that body, so that a definite amount could be allocated both for immediate needs and local expansion programs and a reserve fund established, and each succeeding year, added to, for future needs. The activity of this group, when once functioning, may also start the ball rolling towards the formation of the much-needed community council. Whether this spark will blow out oce more or if it will be our good fortune to have it ignite a flame of energy that will accomplish hopes and dreams of many years, is again something that we must bide our time, before we shall know. This task is not easy and the path is strewn with difficulties, as are all communal undertakings. Our share and the part we as individuals can play, is important with cooperation of all, as the keynote. With this aid, this undertaking should in a short time reach a successful culmination. -Branches of Jewry may wither and die. The tree lives on." Herzl Help the Jewish people to reestablish its national life. Join the Zionist Organization. PRV THE SHEKEL! \aliuii;il Shekel Week Sept. 22-29, 1940 [EL BOAR 1 11 Fifth Avenue. Nw York PLAIN TALK TWO GUEST COLUMNISTS By Al Segal Strictly Confidential TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE (By PHINEAS J. BIRON) U. S. CENTRAL SHEKEL BOARD Dear Mr. Segal: We read how troubled your mind is because you haven t .been going to synagogue on the 1 Sabbath even though you are now a five day week man with all your Saturdays off. But the fact that you are troubled about it is to your credit. It seems that your religious duty lurks admonishingly in the back of your head. You are not like those to whose minds religious duty is entirely foreign. At least you belong to a syn agogue; you are not an alien in the Jewish life of your community. This brings up a problem—the unaffiliated Jew. He concerns us who are the presidents of the two Reform synagogues of your home town. But. broadly speakI ing. the unaffiliated Jew is a problem not only of this town ( but of all communities. Who is the unaffiliated Jew? If he thinks about himself at all, he is a fellow who says: "I am a Jew but I am not interested in synagogues. For that matter I am not interested in organized religion. Religion is a personal matter between God and me." We hope that he does commune with God in the privacy of his heart. We like to think that he makes a synagogue of his heart and there worships God. In fact, the ideal world would be one in which every man carried i synagogue or church in his ; heart. Yes. we particularly welcome i lo the synagogue the unaffiliated ( Jew who says he worships God in his heart. He is the kind of i man we need. He is a Jew to j whom religion is not a matter of I Yom Kippur or Jahrzeit only, j He brings to the synagogue something of its essential life, j for synagogues can't live by I rabbis alone. They live chiefly | by the spirit of their members. (We like to believe that it is I really true that the unaffiliated Jew has this lovely altar in his heart, as he says. Or is he just making excuses?) The human kind is not a deposit vault with separate compartments in which every individual may keep his spiritual possessions privately. It is a society to which every man and women must give something of the illumination of his own spirit to the common fund of light. To bring together the spiritual lights of many people is the function of synagogue and church. The lights of many people brought together must in time disperse the darkness of the current world. What is religion? We don't believe it is just an easy chair for the comfort of the individual who sits in it. Nor is it a personal pass to admit the possessor to the private enjoyment of the grace of heaven. It is good that a man possess religion as an inner comfort and as the adornment of his mind and soul. But to what value is the saint who locks himself up in his private sanctuary? Religion, as we understand it. has to do with a body of ideals by the fulfillment of which man hopes to establish the kingdom of God on earth. We can not do this separately, each going his own way wishfully hoping. Great ideals can be brought to authority in the world only by the power of many men thinking and dreaming together. Synagogue and church (organized religion) are the cohesive forces to hold men together toward the ideal of the more just and lovely world that is inherent in religion. The unaffiliated Jew, however Godly he may feel is like the rock that rolled away from the mountain. Though it was no longer a part of the mountain it continued to claim the power of the mountain. I am of the mountain," it said. Tn me is the strength of the mountain, since I am from But it had no part in the stately functions of the mountain. It (CONTINUED ON PAGE 7) NEWS FOR YOU Things we didn't know about refugees and which we think you should know include the following: Only 12.000 German Jewish refugees remain in the unoccupied portion of France today ... The other 100.000 are all in the Nazi part of the land of liberty, equality and fraternity ... It is calculated that only 200,000 Jews remain in Hitlerland, out of the original Jewish population of 600,000 back in 1933 And the Jewish population of Austria, which two years ago amounted to 180,000 has been reduced to 50.000 The only factor which keeps these 50,000 from starving is the Joint Distribution Committee ... In German-occupied Poland there are a million and a quarter Jews Conditions there are indescribably tragic, particularly since the relief stations for adults, which used to operate in that territory, have been closed There are 6.000 refugees who already have their visas for America or Palestine, but who can't go because they lack the means for transportation. A refugee colony that is growing at an amazing rate is that of Shanghai, by the way ... All this information we culled horn an interesting letter which Morris C. Troper, Chairman of the JDC's European activities, recently sent to his Chairman, Paul Baerwald. WAR ECHOES Britain, we hear, is about to see the light with regard to these German nationals, who include many Jews, whom she has been treating as enemy aliens although actually they are as anti-Hitler as any born Englishman The story is that these refugees will soon be permitted to volunteer for service as a special unit against Hitler, and that the oldest son of Sig mund Freud will be in charge of the group ... A foreign correspondent who recently came home from Germany insists that Hitler's popularity with the German people is on the wane This tallies with Winchell's story that the bombing of the Munich Rathskeller, where Hitler almost got what he deserves, was plotted not by the French or the British, but by Adolf's closest heilers ... In Washington, you'll like to know, usually wellinformed circles declare that Hitler is seriously ill The rumors that Leslie Hore-Belisha is going to spill the "inside story'' of why he was deposed from the British War Ministry by Mr. Chamberlain are unfounded There is, however, a strong likelihood that Hore-Belisha will accept an important post under Winston Churchill Best-selling book in England today is the Bible And it's not only being distributed through the regular channels, but is finding lots of customers in the regulai bookstores. You may soon read big headlines about the arrest made by G-Men at the Greenville Lake Nazi camp, right next door to ex elusive Tuxedo Park Warning to short-wave listeners: There is a woman who broadcasts German propaganda in a perfect American accent, and who claims that she's a Gold Star Mother, who pleads passionately against American participation in the war Fifth Column stuff, incidentally, is being broadcast from an illegally operated radio station somewhere in Connecticut. NEWS OF JEWS All right, all right—so we were wrong The B'nai B'rith headquarters in Washington are definitely not being moved to New York ... It seems that the constitution of the Order prohibits such a move Still, we don't see why all the excitement ... It isn't an insult to be reported as wanting to move to New York The world Zionist situation is very serious, as you realize The headquarters in London are of course unable to function Italy is making a special effort to terrorize Jewish communities in Palestine ... All of which doesn't keep the line of immigrants waiting for visas to the Homeland from lengthening day by day All of this makes us think of the Zionist Emergency Committee, which Dr. Chaim Weizmann set up on his last visit here What, if anything, is it doing? WEAKLY GIGGLE Walter Winchell relays this one, which a foreign correspondent told him ... In a Czech city one night anti-Nazi leaflets were found in the street The Nazi authorities, infuriated, sent orders to the Mayor to find the guilty wretches The next day huge posters reproducing the "seditious" leaflets were hung in every square in town and in all the neighboring villages ... At the bottom of the posters were these words: "Have you seen any of these leaflets... If so, please report to your nearest official This is ordered by the German occupation authorities" This didn't make the Nazis happy, but it made the Czechs feel a lot better Their passive resist ance to Nazi rule is one of Hitler's headaches, you'll be glad to know. ABOUT PEOPLE Orchids to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer for their splendid efforts to get Franz Werfel and Lion Feuchtwanger out of the unoccupied area of France to Hollywood Alia Nazimova, although aging, is still one of our greatest actresses, and our guess is that she'll be very much in demand after MGS's "Escape" is released.

Mr. Harry Wasserman, (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4) did not stand against the winds' blow, it had no part in directing the course of the rivulets that flowed toward the great river to replenish it. It was just a loose rock. We are not speaking for the synagogue as a battlefield" on which to defend Jews against anti-Semites. Our theme is the synagogue as the fortress in which the Jew can preserve his inheritance which is the good life and the constitution of decent human relations that are found in the Torah and Prophets. In good time we shall be saved from Hitler. When that time comes it will be an ironic tragedy is we have to ask ourselves, "Just what were we saved for?" That question will be pertinent if we were a people without any spiritual meaning.. Unless, we are a people conscious of a spiritual function, what are we here for? Certainly, it is scarcely worth going on just to fight antiSemites. Shortly the unaffiliated Jews will be rushing to the synagogues for Rosh Hashonah and Yom Kippur. We welcome them but we beg to assure them they are only transients in the house of Israel, like travelers who drop in for a night in the tourist camps. They contribute nothing to the beauty of the house. Hocks rolling away from the mountain. As for yourself you can set a good example by showing us how dutifully an unoccupied Jew may employ the Sabbath, we nope that in some future column you will report the startling news of having attended synagogue on the Sabbath. Anyway, we have written vour column for you. Sincerely, Morton J. Heldman James L Magrish To Messrs Heldman and Magrish, thanks. To all unaffiliated Jews: Membership application blanks may be had at your nearest synagogue. MIAMI JEWISH ORTHODOX CONGREGATION (TEMPLE ISRAEL 1545 S. W. Third Street ABRAHAM A. KELLNER.

Chief among these is a youth synagogue.

Especially so. when our. .-three delegates gave their report of the 17th national convention ,held in Chicago recently. The "following are a few highlights of the convention: Each speaker urged members of Junior Hadassah tohave faith. courage, vision and strength, and by all means to dispense with the defeatist attitude because '"as long as the Jewish people fight they will survive." The aim of the naiibntll' tfcerd is to increase our membership to 16.000. the national membership in 1939-40 being 15,345. A new project is being Tfeunched in Palestine which will link Meier Shfeyah and Jewish National Fund, two of the projects of Jr. Hadassah. and that is the establishment of a new colony called Hadass, after Hadassah, by a number of graduates of Meier Shfeyah. The next regular meeting of the Miami Unit will be held at the home of Miss Fay Engel, 2396 S. W. 20th St. Monday evening. September 23rd at 8 p. m.

MIAMI, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 1940
PRICE 10 CENTS
RISE IN HUNGARY
Geneva (WNS) The Vienna
arbitration conference, which re-
suited in Rumania's cession of
Northern Transylvania to Hun-
gary under pressure from Naz\
Germany, has had profound re
percussions on Hungarian policy
resulting in changes which place
Hungary's Jews in an unprece-
dentedly critical position.
Though a succession of anti-
Semitic governments in Hungary
have decreed enough anti-Jew-
ish laws within recent years to
preclude any possibility of a nor-
mal life for the overwhelming
majority of Hungary's Jews, nev-
er before has Nazi influence
been permitted to play so dom-
inant a role in the domestic pol-
icy of the country.
Since the cession of Transyl-
vania to Hungary, local Nazis
have been claiming credit for the
bloodless coup. The German mi-
nority in Hungary has been giv-
en increasing liberties, while at
the same time, the Jewish minor-
ity has been paralyzed with
harsher restrictions.
Hungary's anti-Jewish meas-
ures have been harsh but very
little publicized, overshadowed
by the more violent mouthings
and actions taken in Berlin. One
essential difference between the
brand of anti-Semitism in Hun-
gary and in Germany is the fact
that as far as can be ascertained
there has been no actual physical
violence against Jews in Hun-
gary.
At the present writing Jews in
Budapest are fearful of a general
order compelling all Jewish
males, between the ages of 18
and 60 to serve with compulsory
labor battalions. More than 100,-
000 Jews, including shopkeepers,
intellectuals. lawyers, doctors
have already been assigned to
forced labor camps.
Many of these Jews were sent
to farms for special work and
forced to live in shacks and sta-
bles, frequently without even
straw to sleep on. Many of those
now forced to do compulsory la-
bor were recently demobilized
from the Hungarian army.
They work in their own
clothes, but the Government pro-
vides a uniform cap. The chiefs
of the compulsory labor camps
are "Aryan" but some of the sub-
commanders are Jewish.
JEWISH EDUCATION

New York (WNS)Jewish Ed-
UCation Month, organized io

Jewish education and to spur en-
rollment of Jewish children in
Jewish schools throughout Great-
er New York, will be opened

mittee.
Lay and religious leaders from
every section of New York will
attend the meeting and adopt
plans to launch the enrollment
campaign throughout the five
boroughs. Representatives of lo-
cal and national organizations,
leading educators, delegates from
schools and Jewish community
centers, and spokesmen for
youth groups and adult study
organizations also will be pres-

tee.

TEL Hill BOMBING
85 JEWISH REFUGEES
BARRED FROM MEXICO
Norfolk, Va. (WNS)Eighty-
five German-Jewish refugees, re-
fused admittance to Mexico were
permitted to land here as visit-
ors after a four-day wait in the
harbor. It wat announced that
the refugees will be permitted to
remain here long enough to ar-
range passage to South Ameri-
can countries.
The refugees embarked on the
Portuguese steamship Quazna at
Lisbon, equipped with Mexican
visas. President Lazaro Car-
denas of Mexico ordered the ship
to leave the port of Vera Cruz.
New York (WNS)Voicing
the indignation of American Zi-
onists over the bombing of Tel
Aviv by Italian airplanes, Ed-
mund L. Kaufmann, president of
the Zionist Organization of
America, declared that "the
wanton and indiscriminate
bombing of the defenseless city
by Fascist messengers of death"
will be answered by American
Jews with redoubled efforts for
the upbuilding of the Jewish
Homeland in Palestine.
In his statement, Mr. Kauf-
mann said that the Zionist Or-
ganization will do everything
within its power to aid in the
rehabilitation of the victims of
the bombing attack, as well as
to ensure the continued upbuild-
ing of the Jewish Homeland in
the face of all obstacles.
"American Zionists," Mr. Kauf-
mann said, "will gladly assume
the added responsibilites thrust
upon them to help rebuild what
has been destroyed by the fury
of the aggressor. The Jewish
community of Palestine has
aroused the admiration of the
world by the fortitude and cour-
age displayed in the face of the
gravest danger during the re-
cent years of unrest. The cas-
utlaies that have been exacted
upon innocent women and chil-
dren in the bombing outrage last
Monday will not deter the people
of Tel Aviv nor the entire com-
munity of Palestine in their un-
swerving determination to carry
on until the ultimate goal has
been attained. The soil of Pal-
estine has been hallowed by the
blood of the numberless Jewish
martyrs who have given their
lives in defense of their sacred
heritage. Their sacrifices will
not be in vain.
Tel Aviv (WNS-Palcor Agency)
A nautical exhibition staged
here by Palestine's various sea-
faring societies was hailed as
displaying the Yishuv's readi-
ness to participate in naval man-
euvers whenever called upon to
do so by Greatt Britain, by
Moshe Shertek, head of the Po-
litical Department of the Jew-
ish Agency. Mr. Shertek ex-
pressed the Agency's gratifica-
tion thus afforded of the unity
attained by the various mari-
time organizations within the
framework of the Jewish Na-
tional Home.
The exercises on the Yarkon
River in northern Tel Aviv at-
tracted a large and festive crowd
determined to cheer each new
evidence of the Yishuv's grow
ing stature without any outward
intrusion of last Monday's grim
tragedy from which this city is
even now bending every effort
to emerge.
But memories of the unpro-
voked enemy attack made even
more keen appreciation of the
latent defensive qualities inher-
ent in the display sponsored by
the Zebulun Seafarers' Society,
the maritime branch of the Ha-
poel Sports Association, the Jew-
ish Scouts Association's branch
of Sea Scouts and the Haifa
Technical School and held under
the auspices of the Jewish Agen-
cy and the Jewish Maritime
League.
Four hundred members of
these organizations took part in
the varied program that display-
ed their skill in handling fifty
racing, sailing and life boats.
London (WNS)Robert Farin-
acci. former secretary general

Father Coughlin takes a firm
stand against Jawish democratic
'propaganda in the United States,"
\ the Fascist functionary said.
, "Naturally all anglophiles head-
jed by Roosevelt and the rene-
igade Fiorello LaGuardia fight
against Coughlin."
"Never before has Coughlin
taken such a strong stand.
Coughlin will be compensated
for the bitterness which he is
made to undergo by tomorrow's
triumph when a just God will
make the eyes of those who are
blind see facts.
"Then Coughlin will be point-
ed out to the world's honest
peoples as one of the most stren-
I uous defenders of truth, justice
and Catholicism."
NEW RESTRICTIONS
MADE FOR SLOVAKIA
London (WNS)The sorely-
pressed Jews of Nazi-controlled
Slovakia, denationalized and de-
prived of the right to work, faced
additional curbs this week.
In one town, according to lat-
est reports, Jews are not per-
mitted to reside on certain
streets.: In other places, Jew-
ish housewives may do their
shopping only during designat-
ed hours, at which time general-
ly there is no food left.
In addition to government laws
regarding Jews, various locali-
ties have formulated their own
anti-Semitic regulations. In one
town, for instance, Jews may
appear on the streets only at
certain hours. Virtually all of
Slovakia's Jewish lawyers and
physicians have been forbidden
to practice their professions.
JEWISH SOLDIERS
OBTAIN FURLOUGHS
New York (WNS) Orders
have been issued by the War
and Navy Departments granting
furloughs to soldiers and sailors
of the Jewish faith during the
High Holidays, it was announced
by Colonel Julius Ochs Adler.
Geneva (WNS)The smashing
of windows and pillaging of Jew.
ish shops continued in certain
sections of un-occupied France
and Algiers with the Petain gov-
ernment making no outward at-
tempts to curb the anti-Semitic
{agitators, it was reported here.
According to reports, the anti-
Jewish rioters "acted according
to concerted plans," substantiat-
ing the belief that the demon-
strations had been organized in
advance.
Last week Jacques Doriet.
who is rapidly assuming the
role in unoccupied France of
that played in Germany by Jul-
ius Streicher, had boasted that
his followers were organizing
anti-Jewish demonstrations in
French cities for the purpose of
forcing the government to "set-
tle definitely the Jewish prob-
lem:"
In his latest diatribe, Doriet
announced he and his follow-
ers were praying for a Nazi vic-
tory over Great Britain. A Brit-
ish victory, France's No. 1 Jew-
baiter warned, would result in
the Jews taking over Franco
once more.
"Jewish finance," Doriet said,
"would choke us with its cor-
ruption. Freemasonry would re-
establish its dictatorship. Plu-
tocracy would reign as master,
and our national independence
would not be re-established. For
France would officially become
then the first dominion of his
British majesty, whereas until
yesterday, we were that only un.
officially."
Meanwhile, it was learned that
Leon Blum, twice Premier of
France and former leader of the
French Socialist party, has been
arrested and "administratively
interned" at Chateau Chazeron.
OP
SAVE MANY LIVES
Tel Aviv (WNS-Palcor Agen-
cy)The work of the A. R. P.
I workers, the nurses of the Red
Shield of David, the firefighters
assisted by the city police, and
the British soldiers spending
their leave here, was uniformly
devoted and efficient. A few fires
| which broke out after a number
of houses had been damaged
were quickly brought under con-
trol. The public maintained
calm. The civil defense services
had acquitted themselves well in
their first test.
Medical workers of the Hadas-
sah Hospital arrived promptly at
the bombed areas, and with quiet
dispatch helped rescue wounded
from the shattered buildings.
Shortly after the all-clear signal
had sounded, as most of the city
went back to work, long queues
of blood donors lined the walk
leading to the hospital. Their
blood enabled the doctors to save
the lives of many of the more
seriously injured.
The bombs fell close by the
still uncompleted new home of
the Habima Art Theater, at the
head of Rothschild Boulevard in
the heart of the eity, but the
building escaped damage.
Eliezer Kaplan, Dr. Bernard
Joseph and Isaac ben Zvi, who
rushed here immediately after
the raid, represented the Jewish
Agency and the Vaad Leumi in
an interview with Chief Secre-
tary John S. MacPherson. The
representatives of the Jewish
I community discussed new de-
fense measures which can be
taken against possible future at-
tacks, and steps now to be
adopted for the relief of the dis-
tressed who fell victim to the
raid.
A fresh section of Tel Aviv's
new cemetery was opened to re-
ceive the bodies of victims of the
lltaliar air raid. Scores of thou-
sands attended the first 72 Jew.
] ish funerals held at midday.
Among those paying honor to
I the dead were delegations from
'every section of the country, rep-
resentatives of the Government,
the British army and national
institutions. Also sharing in the
grief of the crowds who lined the
streets as the procession passed
were a number of Arabs, led by
Acting Mayor Abdul Raouf el
Bitar of Jaffa.
Meanwhile, the British Red
Cross and the Order of Saint
John in Palestine maintained by
the British community under the
chairmanship of Lady MacMich-
ael, wife of the High Commis-
sioner, sent 500 pounds sterling
for the relief of the victims of
the Italian air raid.
New York (WNS)A resolu-
tion pledging complete coopera-
tion with the President's nation-
al defense program was adopted
by more than 100 delegates at-
i tending the two-day convention
[of the Assembly of Hebrew Or-
thodox Rabbis at the Hotel
1 Sharon.

A SPARKREKINDLED
Once again a spark has been ignited wherein the future
destiny of Greater Miami appears in the distant horizon to be
much lightermore possiblemore definite. More definite than
previously by virtue of the fact that those in whose hands and
thoughts this spark has been rekindled this time are those in
whose ability we place confidence. By their past actions have
they shown far-sightedness and determination to carry through
to completion, their undertakings.
A committee is being formed by a group of community-
minded citizens who will make a thorough survey and investigate
Greater Miami's local needs among which includes a Jewish
Community Center, which would serve as a meeting place for
many organizations, as well as a recreational and educational
center; the formation of a Jewish education system together with
the ultimate purpose of creating a central Greater Miami Bureau
of Jewish Education; the creation of a unified Talmud Torah and
additional local activity having in mind the creation of a voca-
tional guidance bureau, and an augmented local committee for
Civic Protective and Defense measures.
After the survey is completed, the committee will present
facts determined by the investigation to the Budget Committee
of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation and ask for considera-
tion by that body, so that a definite amount could be allocated
both for immediate needs and local expansion programs and a
reserve fund established, and each succeeding year, added to,
for future needs.
The activity of this group, when once functioning, may also
start the ball rolling towards the formation of the much-needed
community council.
Whether this spark will blow out oce more or if it will be
our good fortune to have it ignite a flame of energy that will ac-
complish hopes and dreams of many years, is again something
that we must bide our time, before we shall know. This task is
not easy and the path is strewn with difficulties, as are all com-
munal undertakings. Our share and the part we as individu-
als can play, is important with cooperation of all, as the key-
note. With this aid, this undertaking should in a short time
reach a successful culmination.

PLAIN TALK
TWO GUEST COLUMNISTS
By Al Segal

TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE
(By PHINEAS J. BIRON)
U. S. CENTRAL SHEKEL BOARD
Dear Mr. Segal:
We read how troubled your
! mind is because you haven t
.been going to synagogue on the
1 Sabbath even though you are
now a five day week man with
all your Saturdays off.
But the fact that you are trou-
bled about it is to your credit.
It seems that your religious duty
lurks admonishingly in the back
of your head. You are not like
those to whose minds religious
duty is entirely foreign.
At least you belong to a syn
agogue; you are not an alien in
the Jewish life of your commun-
ity.
This brings up a problemthe
unaffiliated Jew. He concerns
us who are the presidents of the
two Reform synagogues of your
home town. But. broadly speak- I
ing. the unaffiliated Jew is a
problem not only of this town (
but of all communities.
Who is the unaffiliated Jew?
If he thinks about himself at
all, he is a fellow who says: "I
am a Jew but I am not interested
in synagogues. For that matter
I am not interested in organized
religion. Religion is a personal
matter between God and me."
We hope that he does com-
mune with God in the privacy of
his heart. We like to think that
he makes a synagogue of his
heart and there worships God.
In fact, the ideal world would be '
one in which every man carried i
synagogue or church in his ;
heart.
Yes. we particularly welcome i
lo the synagogue the unaffiliated (
Jew who says he worships God !
in his heart. He is the kind of i
man we need. He is a Jew to j
whom religion is not a matter of I
Yom Kippur or Jahrzeit only, j
He brings to the synagogue
something of its essential life, j
for synagogues can't live by I
rabbis alone. They live chiefly |
by the spirit of their members.
(We like to believe that it is I
really true that the unaffiliated
Jew has this lovely altar in his
heart, as he says. Or is he just
making excuses?)
The human kind is not a de-
posit vault with separate com-
partments in which every indi-
vidual may keep his spiritual
possessions privately. It is a
society to which every man and
women must give something of
the illumination of his own spirit
to the common fund of light.
To bring together the spiritual
lights of many people is the func-
tion of synagogue and church.
The lights of many people
brought together must in time
disperse the darkness of the
current world.
What is religion?
We don't believe it is just an
easy chair for the comfort of the
individual who sits in it. Nor
is it a personal pass to admit
the possessor to the private en-
joyment of the grace of heaven.
It is good that a man possess
religion as an inner comfort and
as the adornment of his mind
and soul. But to what value is
the saint who locks himself up
in his private sanctuary?
Religion, as we understand it.
has to do with a body of ideals
by the fulfillment of which man
hopes to establish the kingdom
of God on earth. We can not do
this separately, each going his
own way wishfully hoping.
Great ideals can be brought to
authority in the world only by
the power of many men thinking
and dreaming together.
Synagogue and church (organ-
ized religion) are the cohesive
forces to hold men together to-
ward the ideal of the more just
and lovely world that is inherent
in religion.
The unaffiliated Jew, however
Godly he may feel is like the
rock that rolled away from the
mountain. Though it was no
longer a part of the mountain it
continued to claim the power of
the mountain.
I am of the mountain," it
said. Tn me is the strength of
the mountain, since I am from
But it had no part in the state-
ly functions of the mountain. It

NEWS FOR YOU
Things we didn't know about refugees and which we
think you should know include the following: Only 12.000 Ger-
man Jewish refugees remain in the unoccupied portion of
France today ... The other 100.000 are all in the Nazi part of
the land of liberty, equality and fraternity ... It is calculated
that only 200,000 Jews remain in Hitlerland, out of the original
Jewish population of 600,000 back in 1933 And the Jewish
population of Austria, which two years ago amounted to 180,000
has been reduced to 50.000 The only factor which keeps
these 50,000 from starving is the Joint Distribution Committee
... In German-occupied Poland there are a million and a
quarter Jews Conditions there are indescribably tragic,
particularly since the relief stations for adults, which used to
operate in that territory, have been closed There are 6.000
refugees who already have their visas for America or Palestine,
but who can't go because they lack the means for transporta-
tion.
A refugee colony that is growing at an amazing rate is
that of Shanghai, by the way ... All this information we
culled horn an interesting letter which Morris C. Troper, Chair-
man of the JDC's European activities, recently sent to his Chair-
man, Paul Baerwald.
WAR ECHOES
Britain, we hear, is about to see the light with regard to
these German nationals, who include many Jews, whom she
has been treating as enemy aliens although actually they are
as anti-Hitler as any born Englishman The story is that
these refugees will soon be permitted to volunteer for service
as a special unit against Hitler, and that the oldest son of Sig
mund Freud will be in charge of the group ... A foreign cor-
respondent who recently came home from Germany insists that
Hitler's popularity with the German people is on the wane .
This tallies with Winchell's story that the bombing of the Mun-
ich Rathskeller, where Hitler almost got what he deserves, was
plotted not by the French or the British, but by Adolf's closest
heilers ... In Washington, you'll like to know, usually well-
informed circles declare that Hitler is seriously ill The rum-
ors that Leslie Hore-Belisha is going to spill the "inside story''
of why he was deposed from the British War Ministry by Mr.
Chamberlain are unfounded There is, however, a strong
likelihood that Hore-Belisha will accept an important post under
Winston Churchill Best-selling book in England today is
the Bible And it's not only being distributed through the
regular channels, but is finding lots of customers in the regulai
bookstores.
You may soon read big headlines about the arrest made by
G-Men at the Greenville Lake Nazi camp, right next door to ex
elusive Tuxedo Park Warning to short-wave listeners:
There is a woman who broadcasts German propaganda in a
perfect American accent, and who claims that she's a Gold Star
Mother, who pleads passionately against American participa-
tion in the war Fifth Column stuff, incidentally, is being
broadcast from an illegally operated radio station somewhere
in Connecticut.
NEWS OF JEWS
All right, all rightso we were wrong The B'nai
B'rith headquarters in Washington are definitely not being
moved to New York ... It seems that the constitution of the
Order prohibits such a move Still, we don't see why all
the excitement ... It isn't an insult to be reported as wanting
to move to New York The world Zionist situation is very
serious, as you realize The headquarters in London are
of course unable to function Italy is making a special ef-
fort to terrorize Jewish communities in Palestine ... All of
which doesn't keep the line of immigrants waiting for visas to
the Homeland from lengthening day by day All of this
makes us think of the Zionist Emergency Committee, which Dr.
Chaim Weizmann set up on his last visit here What, if any-
thing, is it doing?
WEAKLY GIGGLE
Walter Winchell relays this one, which a foreign corres-
pondent told him ... In a Czech city one night anti-Nazi leaf-
lets were found in the street The Nazi authorities, infuriat-
ed, sent orders to the Mayor to find the guilty wretches The
next day huge posters reproducing the "seditious" leaflets were
hung in every square in town and in all the neighboring vil-
lages ... At the bottom of the posters were these words:
"Have you seen any of these leaflets- ... If so, please report
to your nearest official This is ordered by the German oc-
cupation authorities" This didn't make the Nazis happy,
but it made the Czechs feel a lot better Their passive resist
ance to Nazi rule is one of Hitler's headaches, you'll be glad to
know.
ABOUT PEOPLE
Orchids to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer for their splendid efforts
to get Franz Werfel and Lion Feuchtwanger out of the unoccu-
pied area of France to Hollywood Alia Nazimova, al-
though aging, is still one of our greatest actresses, and our
guess is that she'll be very much in demand after MGS's "Es-
cape" is released.

are outstanding and active in

appreciated that we were part
01 one of the finest organizations
in .the Country, perhaps in the
world, and we were all inspired
to work harder for those ideals
for which A. Z. A. stands.
At the last regular B'nai B'rith
meeting, we took part in a pro-
gram of entertainment, and our
big thrill came when we received
our permanent charter at that
meeting. It was accepted by our
president. Arthur Weiss, and
was presented by our splendid
leader and advisor, Nathan Adel-

A. Z. A. activities for the fu-

campaign committee to raise the
funds.
Mr. M. J. Kopelowitz, chair-
man of the 1941 campaign com-
mittee announced that the com-
mittee is already at work on the
forthcoming campaign, details of
which will be announced shortly.
President Stanley C. Myers
stated that, with the return of
the vacationers, work will be
commenced in earnest to make
the third annual campaign the
most successful of all of them.
He stressed the increased de-
mands over previous years, and
also pointed out that in spite
of rumors to the contrary, the
work for our suffering brethren
overseas continues unabated.
"The 1941 campaign must go
over the top," said Mr. Myers.
An interesting feature of the
meeting was the playing of a
phonograph record, made only
two weeks ago, featuring the
voice of Mr. Troper. European
representative of the American
Joint Distribution Committee,
who reported in detail the in-
creased rather than decreased ac-
tivity of the Joint Distribution
Committee in European coun-
tries. His report disclosed that
the refugee and relief commit-
tees have been reconstructed in
unoccupied France. Belgium and
Holland, and that assistance was
being provided without in any
way aiding the German economy
or interfering with the British
blockade. Through a special fin-
ancial clearance arrangement.
American dollars are not sent
into territories under German
control.

HIGH HOLY DAYS
ARRANGEMENTS
The seating committee of Beth
David has announced that mem-
bers and friends who wish to
avoid any dissatisfaction should
purchase their seats at once. The
committee will be in the syna-
gogue all day Sunday to five
o'clock, and throughout the
week until 10 P. M. All seats
that are in reserve at present
by members must be called for
this coming week. The commit-
tee will appreciate your cooper-
ation in this matter for it elim-
inates any dissatisfaction.
The services this year will be
enhanced due to the large choir
of trained voices and the well
known "Minagaen." Cantor Jo-
seph Malek. Also a complete
public address system will be in-
stalled to provide good hearing
in any section of the synagogue.
SLICHOS SERVICES
Members and friends will have
the opportunity to hear the Can-
tor and choir during the "Sli-
chos" services to be held Satur-
day night at 11:30. Rabbi Max
Shapiro will discuss the subject
"TshuvaOur Answer." We ask
members and friends to realize
the import of the "Slichos" ser-
vices which usher in a period
of repentance and contemplation
for the High Holy Day season.
JUNIOR SERVICES
The boys and girls will conduct
their own services in the audi-
torium during the High Holy
Days. We urge parents to send
their children to these special
services which have been in
progress for the past seven
years. All those who desire
their children to attend the Jun;
ior services, are asked to call
the office. 2-1473.
TALMUD TORAH
Classes at the Hebrew School
are held daily from 3:1 to 6:15.
We urge parents to realize their
responsibility to their children
and to the Talmud Torah by
coming to the office to discuss
their individual problems of He-
brew education. The Rabbi will
welcome any such meetings at
any convenient time.
MAZEL-TOV

Mrs. Leo Chaikin at the birth of

! pose of Reserving your seats.

est opportunity.

theme: "A New Year in Prepara-
tion." The choir will be lead by

Mechlowitz. We hope you will
tune in.
RELIGIOUS SCHOOL
A large number of students,
old and new, have already reg-
istered for this year's Religious
School classes. However, many
have as yet failed to return their
children to our classes. This will
cause confusion in our classes,
and raise difficulties for the
children. We therefore urge you,
parents, to register your children
now, during the coming week,
any afternoon between 4 and 6.
Our school has been organized
on a five year schedule. Classes
under the instruction of Cantor
M. Mamches and Miss S. Shpall
!from 3:15 to 7 p. m.. Monday,
j Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday.
A nominal registration fee is
charged all children of non-syn-
agogue-member parents.
INDUCTION CEREMONY
An innovation in our commun-
ity, an induction ceremony in
honor of all new registrants in
our Religious School, will be
held in the synagogue. Sunday
evening, October 20th. If you
want your child to be officially
inducted into his Jewish educa-
tion, enroll him or her before
Rosh Hashono.
The induction ceremony will
be open to the public. Refresh-
ments will be served all child-
ren.
WELCOME HOME
A hearty Baruch Habo to our

did not stand against the winds'
blow, it had no part in directing
the course of the rivulets that
flowed toward the great river to
replenish it. It was just a loose
rock.
We are not speaking for the
synagogue as a battlefield" on
which to defend Jews against an-
ti-Semites. Our theme is the
synagogue as the fortress in
which the Jew can preserve his
inheritance which is the good
life and the constitution of de-
cent human relations that are
found in the Torah and Proph-
ets.
In good time we shall be saved
from Hitler. When that time
comes it will be an ironic trag-
edy is we have to ask ourselves,
"Just what were we saved for?"
That question will be pertinent
if we were a people without any
spiritual meaning.. Unless, we
are a people conscious of a spir-
itual function, what are we here
for?
Certainly, it is scarcely worth
going on just to fight anti-
Semites.
Shortly the unaffiliated Jews
will be rushing to the syna-
gogues for Rosh Hashonah and
Yom Kippur. We welcome them
but we beg to assure them they
are only transients in the house
of Israel, like travelers who
drop in for a night in the tour-
ist camps. They contribute noth-
ing to the beauty of the house.
Hocks rolling away from the
mountain.
As for yourself you can set
a good example by showing us
how dutifully an unoccupied
Jew may employ the Sabbath,
we nope that in some future col-
umn you will report the startling
news of having attended syn-
agogue on the Sabbath.
Anyway, we have written vour
column for you.
Sincerely,
Morton J. Heldman

To Messrs Heldman and Ma-
grish, thanks. To all unaffiliated
Jews: Membership application
blanks may be had at your near-

NOTES
Our lar Tegular rileeting held
at the home of our president,
Miss Betty Lask)*> was one of
extreme interest. Especially so.
when our. .-three delegates gave
their report of the 17th national
convention ,held in Chicago re-
cently. The "following are a few
highlights of the convention:
Each speaker urged members of
Junior Hadassah to- have faith.
courage, vision and strength, and
by all means to dispense with the
defeatist attitude because '"as
long as the Jewish people fight
they will survive." The aim of
the naiibntll' tfcerd is to increase
our membership to 16.000. the
national membership in 1939-40
being 15,345. A new project is
being Tfeunched in Palestine
which will link Meier Shfeyah
and Jewish National Fund, two
of the projects of Jr. Hadassah.
and that is the establishment of
a new colony called Hadass, af-
ter Hadassah, by a number of
graduates of Meier Shfeyah.
The next regular meeting of
the Miami Unit will be held at
the home of Miss Fay Engel,
