ASKS FOR TRAINING OF
Washington (WNS)A Univer-
sity of Jewish Studios to train
all who engage in professional
Jewish activtics is advocated by
Rabbi David Polish, director of
the B'nai B'rith Hillel Founda-
tion at Cornell University, in
the December issue of The Na-
tional Jewish Monthly.
"This University," he writes.
"would consist of various colleges
which would train students for
the rabbinate, social work, edu-
cation, etc. Only graduates of
the university would be engaged
or supported in the communities
where they would be called upon
All too often, Rabbi Polish de-
clares in his article, Jewish
workers, teachers, journalists
and other communal servants not
only lack an adequate Jewish
background, but fall far below
professional standards in their
fields as well.
The goal of the proposed Uni-
versity would be "the creation of
a united pledge for positive and
creative Jewish life in America."

I VICTIMS OF
Sofia. (WNS)Bulgaria's 50.-
000 Jews became the latest vic-
tims of Hitler's fanatical anti-
Semitism when the Bulgarian
Parliament passed the drastic
anti-Jewish bill, excluding Jews
from the government, municipal
and army services.
Passage of the anti-Jewish bill,
the first in Bulgarias history,
came as a stunning blow to the
Jewish community since in-
formed circles predicted only a
month ago that the Fascist-
minded members of Parliament
would never rally sufficient vot-
ers necessary for the bills adop-
These same circles said that
passage of the bill, which was
introduced last Oct. 7 on the in-
itiative of Interior Minister Petar
Gabrevski after its approval by
the cabinet, signifies that Bul-
garian leaders have yielded to
Nazi pressure in the Balkans.
In addition to barring Jews
from government and army posts
the bill prohibits Jews from own-

of Jews in the professions to the
proportion of Jews in the entire

up in a ghetto, blocked off from
the rest of the city by an eight-
foot concrete wall, it was learned
Nazi authorities have ordered
Warsaw's entire Jewish popula-
tion to move into the ghetto,
which lies in the central district
of the former Polish capital. The
housing shortage in the ghetto is
so severe that as many as seven
persons must share one room.
The concrete wall surrounds
more than 100 city blocks and
closes off 200 streets and street
car lines. The huge wall in-
cludes 18 entrances but persons
wishing to enter or leave the
ghetto must secure a special pass.
Even non-Jews who want to en-
ter the district must receive
When announcement was made
last winter of the proposed con-
struction of the wall, the Nazis
denied that the measure was an-
ti-Semitic but maintained that
it was strictly a health move de-
signed to protect Jews and Poles
alike from epidemics likely to
follow the war.

conduct all their businesses inside
the ghetto walls. Visits to the

I A MATTER OF POLITICS j
BT Al ***!
Coming as pleasant news this week was the announce-
ment by the officers and directors of Temple Israel wherein
they conferred upon Dr. Jacob H. Kaplan the honor of being
Rabbi Emeritus of the Temple.
Recognizing the wholehearted devotion and faithfulness
he has given in his activities while filling the pulpit of the
Temple as spiritual leader, it was a deserving action enabling
Dr. Kaplan to relieve himself of the bulk of the tremendous
burdens he has carried and to slacken the rapid pace he set
during these years. As the spiritual head and leader of the
large, influential and active Temple Israel which he has guided
for the past 15 years, coming here from Cincinnati in 1926.
Dr. Kaplan was recognized as an ambassador of good will.
Always in the forefront of every movement that would aid in
cementing our relationships with our neighbors he assisted
greatly in making the path of Judaism in our city an easier
one to travel and through which to achieve and earn for Jewry
that place of respect to which it is entitled. Through his efforts
and continued work. Dr. Kaplan was one of those responsible
for the formation of the Round Table Conference of Jews and
Christians, active to this very day. He lectured at the Univer-
sity of Miami and was chosen to head the Rabbinical Associa-
tion of the State of Florida being drafted to serve another term
of this group which he now heads.
Devoting a career to being a rabbi in the true sense of the
word carries with it absolute sacrifices, many very great. It
carries with it innumerable hardships and difficulties. It is a
vocation that rarely sees its virtues rewarded and often finds
its sincere actions harshly condemned.
Knowing how seldom and few are the occasions where
spiritual leaders are rewarded for this devotion to this life-
time of labor with its meager recompense, it is truly gratifying
to realize that as a respected and loved servant of our com-
munity he has been rightfully and fittingly recognized. We
are pleased because we know that Dr. Kaplan, now in his
prime of life, will be able to see the fruits of his labor and the
creations of his effort and together with Mrs. Kaplan will be in
a position to enjoy many years of happiness with us, knowing
that his guiding hand will always be present where the good
and benefit of our people are concerned.
TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE
(By PfflNEAS J. BIRON)
MEET YOUR OBLIGATIONREGISTER!
To sustain the principles of our great Democracy, every
American Citizen must enjoy the gratifying privilege of the
ballot which gives a voice in Government. If this privilege
should ever be denied, it would definitely destroy our Democ-
racy. We should always be mindful of this privilege and feel
ever grateful that it is afforded to all of us. Therefore, those
of us who are derelict in exercising their right to ballot may
rightfully be condemned unworthy of Citizenship.
To be a true and loyal American, each and every one
must register and vote at election. We stress the importance
to every Citizen of the City of Miami to register for the next
City election to be held next May. All previous registrations
on Miami registration books have been declared null and void
so that all Citizens of the City of Miami must register between
now and the closing date of the registration. December 21, 1940.
The registration books are open in the office of the City
Clerk, Mr. Frank J. Kelly, on the third floor of the Court House
This registration is not to be confused with the County and
State registrations which are renewed every two years. The
present Miami registration is intended to be a permanent one.
Well, the election is all over
and has fallen deep into the
abysses of time. So I may safe-
ly speak of it. During the weeks
of the campaign it took all my
self-restraint to hold me back
from utterance on the subject.
But with admirably control
I said to myself. No, Segal, not
a word! Not a word until its
all over for several weeks. You
can't afford to be publicly the
partisan who sticks his neck out.
He who sticks his neck out may
get his head chopped off.
Even now. weeks later. I am
so cautious as not to declare pub-
licly in this column how I voted,
though whoever looked over my
shoulder in the secrecy of the
voting place could have detect-
ed me voting for Roosevelt. Eut
that is a matter strictly confi-
dential between me and my con-
There was a certain day \fi thi?
campaign when I almost was
consumed by anger which I could
not allpw myself to get out of my
system at the time. Had I done
so I would have been called a
New Deal agent using the col-
umns of the Jewish press to
further a political cause.
What made me so angry was
to receive a certain pamphlet
from the National Republican
Committee in New York. It is
not that I am an intolerant man
who resents being approached
by pamphlets of contrary opin-
ion. But this political pamphlet
came to me as a Jew; it brought
me the appeal of other Jews who.
as Jews, attempted to influence
my vote as an American citi-
I would not have been so an-
gry about it had it been a forth-
right appeal to Jews by the Re-
publican National Committee
Then I would have said. "Well.
these people don't know any bet-
ter. I must forgive them."
But this pamphlet contained
several dozen statements of po.
litical affiliation signed by Jews.
Nor were they Jews of whom it
might have been said. "The dam-
fools! It takes all kinds of Jews
to make the community. These
don't seem to know any better
than to lend their Jewish names
to political purposes."
The signers of this pamphlet
big rabbis, big lawyers, big busi-
ness peoplebig Jewish le iders.
It was quite obvious that they
had been selected for this politi-
cal purpose precisely because of
their leadership in Israel.
They were of that group that
has been heard rightfully deplor-
ing when Judaism has been seen
mixing in politics. They have
despised the little ward-heeler
who employs his Judaism for
vote-getting. Their finely bal-
anced sense of propriety suffers
acutely whenever they hear of a
police judge or some other non-
Jewish politician being the guest
of honor at the dedication of a
They have always been the
foremost champions of the idea
that it is prostitution to lend the
Jewish name to any purpose of
politics. They are of those who
are often heard insisting that
the Jews are not a people separ-
ate from the communion of de-
mocracy who must be separately
They have always been quick
to point out that there is no
Jewish vote and have resented
as insult any appeal that sug-
gested that there is a Jewish
Yet here they were addressing
me through the agency of a po-
litical committee, saying to me
in effect: "Mr. Segal, you are
a Jew and we are Jews. Breth-
ren, in fact. Since we are all
Jews together you must believe
us when we tell you that Mr.
Willkie is the man for presi-
I would have resented them
as much if. as Jews, they had
come to tell me that Roosevelt
was the man that I, as a Jew,
should vote for. In fact, I had
no partisan feeling against Mr.
Willkie. I regarded him, and
still regard him, as an honest,
able and patriotic citizen and I
wouldn't have felt any pain had
he been elected president.
Nor did I hold it against him
that these prominent Jews Jew-

IN THE SYNAGOGUE
Due to the splendid increase
in the number of daily worship-
ers it was decided to conduct
two Shachris services daily ex-
cepting Sunday. The first min-
yon meets at 7:15 a. m. and the
second at 8:00 a. m. We are
happy to announce this innova-
tion because many of our peo-
ple who joined were unable to
attend the minyon and can now
be accommodated and because it
bespeaks the continuous growth
of our activities. The Sholos
Sudos circle also makes fine pro-
gress and each Shabbos a diffe-
ent member is the host to the
group. Last Shabbos Mr. I Ros-
engartcn contributed the Shalos
Sudos while the host this week
is Mr. S. Kaplan.
The Bar Mitzvah of Billy Lu-
bel will be celebrated in our
synagogue this coming Sabbath
and the parents take this means
of extending a most cordial in-
vitation to all of their friends.
We are happy to note that at-
tending will be Billy's grandfath-
er, Mr. Harry Lubel of Mobile.
Ala. Mr. Lubel was our Baal
Tfiloh on the High Holidays sev-
eral years back and made num-
erous friends in our synagogue
and we are most pleased to wel-
come him back into our midst
on this happy occasion.

Did you know the pilot and
interpreter for Perdo Alvares
de Cabral, who discovered Bra-
zil in 1500. was a Polish Jew who
had been forcibly baptized by
explorer Vasco de Gama and
given the name Gaspar de Ga-
ma? That the Brazilian isl-
and Nodonha was named after
Fernando de Noronha. a Potru-
! guese Marrano who with six
, shiploads of his co-religionists
; settled in Brazil three or four
; years later? That it was Jews
, and Marranos who first brought
sugar and tobacco to Portugal
from Brazil? And that when
the Dutch, in 1630. captured Re-
cife, (now Pemambuco). the
Marranos stopped pretending
and lived openly as Jews?
The main street of Recife at that
time was popularly known as
Rua des Judios, and the town it-
self was often called Cais dos
Judios. which means "port of
the Jews" When the Portu-
guese recaptured the city, how-
ver, most of the Jews left Re-
cife for Holland, while a hand-
ful found their way to New Y rk
in 1654 Those Jews who re-
gained in Recife as Marranos
eventually became true Catho-
iics, but many old Brazilian
families still have typical Span-
ish and Portuguese Jewish
names ... A curious incident
occurred some centuries later,
when, in 1887. a committee of
Alsatian Jews visited Emperor
Dom Pedro II ... As a compli.

885-ton vessel to keel over and
slowly settle to the harbor bot-

The number of casualties was
held down by the speedy rescue

victims were first brought to the
Haifa breakwater and then trans-

Shortly after the disaster the
Jewish National Council (Vaad

and clothing to Haifa to aid the
survivors. Jewish officials vis-

they would be taken to an un-

WEIZMENN ASKS JEWS
TO ENLARGE SUPPORT
London (Palcor Agency)De-
claring that in the future as in
the past the fate of the Jewish
people "will lie first of all in
our own hands," Dr. Chaim
Weizmann, president of the World
Zionist Organization and the
Jewish Agency for Palestine, ad-
dressed a message to American
Jews in which he said that "the
tragic necessities of the moment
must not distract our attention
from our ultimate goal, which is
the full liberation of our people
through the establishment of a
Jewish National Home on a
sound and enduring basis."'
ishly came to me to ask me to
vote for him. I hold it only
against them and their leadership
in Israel. Their leadership, as I
understand it, if the gift of the
Jewish people who have faith in
them. It must not be used for
any but Jewish purpose s,
But it it only fair to inquire
why these leaders slipped this
once from their lofty elevation.
This brings up a matter which
was whispered during the cam-
paign, and of which it is now
several weeks latertimely to
speak. It was the widely spread
report that nearly all Jews were
voting for Roosevelt; it was whis-
pered with prejudicial purpose
against Roosevelt; it frighten,,:
many a Jewish citizen who heard
it; it caused some of them to say,
"We must be careful! We must
certainly be careful!
One of them, in fact, said it
to me. Yes. we should watch
our step, he warned. Jews who
were for Roosevelt should keep
quiet about it. He said that Rabbi
Stephen S. Wise particularly was
a menace to Israel, coming out
as boldly as he did for Roose-
velt. As for himself, he was for
Willkie not only because he
liked Willkie. but because it was
being said that Jews were for
I gather that our leaders
thought they were serving Israel
j when this galaxy of them came
out jointly in this public way for
Mr. Willkie. Their big names
would be the testimony that net
all Israel was involved in the
crime of voting for Roosevelt!
Here were Israel's biggest men
on the other side!
I myself didn't care who knew
I was voting for Roosevelt. In
the column I write in the daily
press I advertised widely that I
was voting for him. If I permit
h ar to control my rights as an
American citizen 1 am voluntar-
ily yielding to the civil restric-
tions that anti-Semitism wou'd
impose upon me if it could. My
right is to speak my opinion pub-
| licly on any public matter and
1 am not yet recognizing any
power in America that can cur-
tail that right.
The political pamphlet of our
big leaders contained the faint
stuffy smell of long dead times
when "hofjuden" did their best
to curry favor for themselves
and Israel in the palace.---
However. I shall continue to
follow these leaders over the
top in all the drives, as I have
been doing these many years. I
shall sit at their feet and look
I up to their gleaming shirt bos-
oms as they sit at the speakers'
tables at many a Jewish dinm r
to come, I shall foreive them
but I hope that in the future
they will use their Jewish lead-
ership only for Jewish pur-
