Officers Chosen
At Meeting
Vaad Hakashruth Elects
That public opinion has
been aroused in Miami and
that simple honesty is to be
enforced in the sale of Kosher
food products and meats was
amply demonstrated at the
meeting in the Beth David
Synagogue held last Wednes-
day night, when officers were
chosen for the newly formed
Vaad Hakashruth. After a
brief outline of conditions as
respects the sale of kosher
meats and food products in
Miami, by John Wolf who pre-
sided, Rabbi Israel H. Weis-
feld in a brief but pointedly
forceful address and without
mincing words depicted con-
ditions in Miami which were
astounding and called upon
the butchers and Shochtim to
realize that they must immed-
iately enlist in the cause or
face the inevitable conse-
quences.
The committee on nomina-
tions presented its report and
it was unanimously adopted.
The following were choseK:
Rabbi Israel H. Weisfeld,
Rabbi in charge of Kashruth,
and Honorary Chairman, John
Wolfe, Chairman, M. Abrams
of Miami Beach, Vice-chair-
man, P. G. Blank, Treasurer,
E. Gordon, Recording Secre-
tary, Louis Weinkel, Finan-
cial Secretary, and Messrs.
Isidor Cohen, Nathan Adel-
man, Harry Isaacs, Abe Aron-
owitz and Louis Heiman as
the Executive Board.
Various resolutions were
then adopted the most impor-
tant being one designed to re-
move the shochtim from the
control of the butchers and
placing them directly under
the supervision of the Rabbi
and the Vaad Hakashruth.
A matter which vitally af-
fected Miami Beach was
then reported and the action
of the Rabbi and committee
in taking drastic action was
unanimously approved. It was
reported that the Sea Breeze
Hotel, Biscayne-Collins Hotel
and Nemo Hotel had cooperat-
ed with the Rabbi and Com-
mittee in all matters and their
action was commended. After
a hearing afforded the parties
involved was granted at the
Rabbi's request, the decisions
reached by the Rabbi and
Committee were unanimously
agreed to by the parties in-
volved and a pledge of future
cooperation voluntarily given,
and the matter was then clos-
ed
All the butchers engaged
in the sale of kosher meats
were present and pledged
their unstinted support and
cooperation in all matters and
Seminary Repre-
sentative Arrives
On Mission Here
Rabbi Stops In Miami On
Southern Tour
Rabbi D. Ordentlich arrived
in Miami this week on his
tour of the Southern States
for a two fold purpose. His
first and main purpose is to
conduct an educational cam-
paign throughout the South-
ern States to acquaint the
Jewish residents of the impor
tance to the United Staes and
the world at large of the Ye-
shivas Rabbi Isaac Elchanan,
now popularly known as the
Theological Seminary and Col-
lege of America. He is stres-
sing the fact that Traditional
Judaism can best be served by
such institutions as the Ye-
shiva which combines the cler-
ical knowledge of the Talmud,
the Code of Jurisprudence and
other Rabbinical lore and
study so vitally necessary for
a -Rabbi,- with--the secular
knowledge of a man of the
world. More than that, it
puts forth every effort to pro-
duce Rabbis with a knowledge
and understanding of the pre-
sent day problems of Jewry
who by their innate sense of
the fitness of things and
knowledge of everyday Amer-
ican life, combined with their
zeal for traditional Judaism
can best cope with the lack
of knowledge of true tradi-
tional Judaism. The type of
man produced by the Yeshiva
can meet the old time Rabbi
on his own grounds in mat-
ters of Jewish law and learn-
ing yet be on an equal if not
superior footing with those
American leaders in Jewry,
clerical or lay, to whom the
knowledge of the Talmud was
inconsequential.
Rabbi Ordentlich is at the
same time trying to raise
funds for the magnificent
Five Million dollar group of
buildings now being erected
for the Yeshiva, the first
building being recently dedi-
cated in New York City.
Rabbi Israel H. Weisfeld of
Beth David, who is a graduate
of the Yeshiva is to accom-
pany Rabbi Ordentlich on a
tour of a number of Florida
cities, having been urged to
do so by the faculty of the
Yeshiva.
to aid in establishing Kash-
ruth in Miami and surround-
ing territory.
A series of conferences will
be held between a sub-com-
mittee and the butchers and
shochtim to put into immed-
iate operation the resolutions
adopted at the Wednesday
night meeting.
Talmud Torah
Ground Breaking
Epoch Making Event To Take
Place
The Building Committe of
the Talmud Torah consisting
of Lewis Brown, Chairman,
Isidor Cohen, Secretary, and
J. Louis Shochet, Jos. M.
Fine, W. L. Williams, Harry
Isaacs, I. Lasky, Stanley C.
Myers and Herbert E. Scherr,
met at the office of the Chair-
man on last Monday and plans
were adopted for the breaking
of ground for the new edifice
being erected to provide an
auditorium in addition to am-
ple class rooms for a Talmud
Torah for Miami's Jewish
children. A sub committee
consisting of Isidor Coheu,
Stanley C. Myers and J. Louis
Shochet were authorized to
proceed with the program for
the ground greaking ceremon-
ies, and all matters incident
to the starting of the build-
ing. A sub-committee con-
sisting of'"Rabbi 'Israel H.
Weisfeld, W. L. Williams and
Lewis Brown was appointed
to approve all final building
plans and make the necessary
changes if they deemed such
changes proper. The plans
call for a foundation capable
of carrying four stories, only
one story containing six class
rooms, suitable lavatories, of-
fice, kitchen fully equipped,
and large auditorium for so-
cial events to be erected at
the present time. It is to be
of Spanish architecture and
designed to give the maxi-
mum amount of comfort and
aid occording to the latest
pedagogical methods. An
auxiliary committees of ladies
of the Beth David Sisterhood
headed by Mrs. Isidor Cohen
and Mrs. Lewis Brown is aid-
ing greatly in the raising of
funds and other matters aris-
ing.
The committee in charge
propose that this event which
marks a new epoch in the his-
tory of Miami Jews shall be
one long to be remembered
by all present. Seating ar-
rangements are being prepar-
ed to take care of the large
audience of residents and
tourists who will be present.

EDITORIAL
Spare the Rod and Spoil the Child
When* wise King Solomon
enunciated the oft repeated
and now famous saying
"spare the rod and spoil the
child" we wonder if he had
present day Miami in mind.
Much discussion has been
evoked among the younger
feminine element of our fair
City by the Editorial appear-
ing in last week's issue. "Jus
Words'* in which several glar-
ing indiscretions on the part
of Miami Jewish organiza-
tions were pointed out. "Of
course it was wrong, but why
stir the matter up? was the
universal comment. And our
reply: "Spare the rod and
spoil the child." Of course,
we want every Jewish organi-
zation in Miami to prosper and
grow! But that growth must
be in the proper direction. And
above all in its growth there
must not be forgotten plain
and simple honesty, when one
holds itself out to the world
as a Jewish organization it
must in simple honesty ad-
here to Jewish practices, at
least do nothing un-Jewish.
And that brings us to some-
thing at this time of great
interest to the Jewish Com-
munity of Miami. As appears
in the news columns of this
paper public opinion has been
aroused in Miami and the best
elements of our Jewish Com-
munity have taken action to
insure that simple honesty
must be practiced in the hand-
ling and sale of kosher meats.
And again the cry is raised
"Why stir the matter up?"
And again our answer "Spare
the rod and spoil the Child."
When one learns that the peo-
ple of Miami have been sold
and charged for what is sup-
posed to be lamb prices and
then by universal admission
of all that this supposed lamb
was 'GOAT." how in simple
honesty can anyone say "Why
stir the matter up." When we
find that we have been paying
a tariff for the privilege of
getting suppose-dlv "KOSH-
ER" products and ??????.
can anyone in simple honesty
sit idly by and say nothing?
The Jewish Floridian does
not believe that the purpose
of a newspaper is to simply
sit idly by, overlook matters
of even simple honesty and
just smile and pat people on
the back in hopes that the cir-
culation may be thus increas-
ed. Our conception of a news-
paper is that it must present
all the facts to the people, be
they pleasant or even unpleas-
ant. That it must not shirk
plain duty when that duty is
a matter of public interest
and it proposes to carry that
policy into effect at all times.
We should like to see all but-
chers and all shochtim get a-
long and prosper, but not at
the expense of simple honesty.
"Spare the Rod and Spoil
the Child." we hope will be the
policy of the Jewish Commun-
ity and people of Miami no
matter who may be involved,
especially where simple hon-
esty is involved.
BROTHERHOOD
In every patch of timber you
Will always find a tree or two
That would have fallen long
ago,
Borne down by wind or age
or snow.
Had not another neighbor
tree
Held out its arms in sympathy
And caught the tree the
storm had hurled
To earth. So, brothers, is the
earth.
In every patch of timber
stand
Samaritans of forest land,
The birch, the maple, oak or
pine.
The fir. the cedar, all the line;
In every wood, unseen, un-
known,
They bear the burdens of
their own
And bear as well another
form.
Some brothers stricken by the
storm.
Shall trees be nobler to their
kind
Than men. who boast the
noble mind?
Shall there exist within the
wood
This great eternal In-other-
hood
Of oak and pine, of hill and
fen
And not within the hearts of
men?
God grant that men are like
to these.
And brothers brotherly as
trees.

GREETINGS
Do you remember 'way back
wh _ Say thirty or forty years.
You never saw your sweet-
heart's limbs.
But iudged her by her
ears?
The kids were washed each
Saturday night.
Their daddy cut their hair,
Their suits were made from
Uncle's pants.
And they wore no under-
wear.
The women padded, but did
^ not paint,
Nor smoke nor drink nor
vote,
The men wore boots and
derby hats,
And whiskers like a goat.
Not a soul had appendicitis,
Nor thought of buying
glands,
The butcher sold you liver,
But charged you for his
hands.
You did not need a bank ac-
count,
Your beer gave 4 per cent,
The hired girl got three a
week,
And twelve bucks paid the
rent.
You could stand each night
when work was o'er
With one foot on the rail,
Your hip supporting not a
thing
Except your own shirtail.
You had real friends, and
trusted them,
Yow knew they were sin-
cere;
The same we are, with our
wish to you,
On the eve "of A GOOD
NEW YEAR.
SAY'
A good man likes a hard
boss. I mean a boss who in-
sists upon things being done
right, a boss who is watching
things closely enough so that
he knows a good job from a
poor one.

A doctor left a thermomet-
er with the wife of a patient,
and told her to take her hus-
band's temperature ever y
hour and to call him if he got
any worse. When he returned
to the house in the morning,
the patient was missing ami
the doctor asked what had
happened.
"I broke the thermomet-
er," said the woman, "so I
used the barometer. It regis-
tered 'very dry,' so I gave him
about a pint of corn liquor and
I swear he got up and went
out and went to plowing in
the back field."

"The stenographer we re-
quire," ran the ad, "must be
fast, absolutely accurate, and
must have human intelli-
gence. If you are not a crack-
er jack, don't bother us."
One of the answerers wrote
that she noted their require-
ments and went on: "Your ad-
vertisement appeals to me
stronglystronger than pre-
pared mustard as I have
searched Europe, Airope,
Irope and Hoboken in quest of
someone who could use my
talents to advantage. When
it comes to this chin music
proposition, I have never
found man, woman or dicta-
phone who could get first
base on me, either fancy or
catch-as-catch-can. I wrjte

how it came to the assistance!
of a belated pupil, is the sub-!
ject of the following story:
Avrumke came late to che-

'Avrumke, what's the mat-|
ter? Why are you so late?"
"Well, you see, rebbe, it is
so slippery that every time I
took a step forward, I slipped
back two." replied the pupil.
"But. Avrumke, if that is
soif that is so how did you
get here at all?" retorted the
teacher.
"Oh, you see, rebbe, I turn-
ed back and started home."

THINGS THEATRICAL
OLYMPIA THEATRE
After having been, succes-
sively, film villain, director
and comedian, Alan Hale has
blossomed out into a screen
hero in "Sal of Singapore," a
Pathe picture in which he
plays opposite Phyllis Haver
and which will be shown at
the Olympia Theatre, begin-
ning Saturday, Mid-Nite Frol-
ic.
However, this new Hale ro'e
is a decided variation from
the usual spic and span Lo-
thario of the screen, in that
he portrays the burly captain
of a tramp freighter, brawny
enough to be certain that
might is right, at least on his
ship, unmoral, willing to use
any means to accomplish his
ends, and yet strangely stir-
red by the clingly hands of
an abandoned baby.
Howard Higgin directed
"Sal of Singapore" for Pathe.
Almost the entire picture was
filmed aboard a tramp freigh-
ter several miles out in the
ocean.
Besides Miss Haver and Mr.
Hale, the cast includes Harold
William Hill, a seven-month-
old baby, Fred Kohler, Dan
Wolheim, Noble Johnson, Pat
Harmon and Jules Cowles.
In addition to the moving
picture program there will be
the offering of the Stage
Band under the able leader-
ship of Stanly Malotte and
the unusually attractive stage
novelties "Minutes of Diver-
sion," in which Tom and Bet-
ty Martin formerly with the
Publix Unit Show "Red Hot
Capers" will show the wares
which have made them fam-
ous in showdom. They will
be followed on the bill by Ray

FAIRFAX THEATRE
Two men in love with the
same woman, their plane
wrecked on the ice fields of
the Antartic. the favored
suitor helpless, food low. no
fire!
This is the portentous sit-
uation which looms appalling-
ly before Monte Blue and H.
B. Warner as the daring polar
flyers in the latest all-talking
picture to be presented at the
Fairfax Theatre. "Conques-"
in which Monte Blue stars.
"Conquest'* which will play
a weeks engagement at the
Fairfax starting Saturday.
January 12th, is a thrilling
audible screen dramatization
of the exploration of the An-
tarctic in search of the South
Pole. While picturing in vi-
vid detail two epochal air
dashes into this land of ice
mystery it x-rays as vividly
the innermost and fear-mac'.-
dened treachery as well a.-
their heroism when facing
death.
With Monte Blue and H. B.
Warner in the cast are Lois
Wilson. Edmund Breese and
Tullv Marshall.
Besides "Conquest"' the
Fairfax will offer for their
patrons two carefully selected
Vitaphone Presentations. One
Jane Green, sings several
snappy numbers that are e-
peciallv entertaining. The
other is the Cebellos Revue, a
dancing unit show.
Adventures of A
Peddler
Bv LEON J. DASHEVSKY
(Continued from Last Week)
The city was dotted with
large and small smoke stacks
and reeked of malt, alcohol,
and freshly brewed beer. Lonn
lines of wagons loaded with
yellow barley, with small, pot-
bellied barrels, and with box-
es which looked like dried-up
beehives, and which were fill-
ed with full or empty bottles
whose necks protruded like
the heads of chickens from
crowded coops, extended a-
long all the streets near the
river, while gigantic, stout
Germans in fur coats sat in
the high driver's seats and
rocked back and forth like
ragged scarecrows shaken by
the wind.
With many a yell addressed
to the horses Pete made his
way through the maze of traf-
fic and we entered a narrow
and very clean lane. The first
house we stopped near was
that of a Polish priest. Here
we had to unload two tons of
coal, and the rest of the coal
was to be delivered elsewhere.
Pete filled hundred-pound
baskets, which I carried down
and emptied at a place which
the priest pointed out to me.
The priest stood at the cel-
lar door and counted the
baskets. Every time I passed
by with a' full basket I noticed
a malicious sarcastic smile
upon his lips. I saw him fol-
low every move I made, as
though he were counting my
very footsteps, and presently
he said:
"See. Jew, that you don't
cheat me. Take care I get
forty basketsfull ones, un-
derstand."
I tried to tell him that I
had nothing to do with the
correctness of the number or
measure, that I had been do-
ing this work only a couple of
hours, and that I was only a
carrier of coal.
The priest wanted a little
fun at my expense, but a wo-
man's voice called him and he
quickly ascended the three
slips and disappeared behind
a gray, freshly-painted door.
A young slender woman with
deep, blue eyes and a head
covered almost entirely with
grey hair, took his place and
counted the baskets. She al-
so watched every movement
if mine as one watches a rope-
walker. Presently the priest
returned: the two exchanged
glances, then she went away.
He began to tease me again:
"What good wdl it do you
.o work. Jew? Why don't you
go into business".'"
I said nothing and kept on
working.
"If you haul coal." he went
on. "you won't be able to ob-
serve your Sabbath. You are
a Jew and ought to do what
all your people are doing."
Pete hurried me. so I was
unable to stop and talk to the
priest. But he followed me
into the cellar and continued:
"You ought to go into busi-
ness, you ought to observe
your Sabbath."
I wanted to josh him a lit-
tle, and when at the thirtieth
basket he ascended into the
cellar to see where I was emp-
tying the coal, I remarked,
"Well, little priest, perhaps if
you will suggest some good
business. I may go into it."
"Rags," he answered quick-
ly and maliciously.
"I don't like the rag busi-
ness. But if you could sug-
gest something in the heaven-
ly, sacred'line, I would gladly
go into it," I retorted with
some venom. "I understand,
little father, that such basi-
ls very profitable. From
what I can see, you are doing
quite well, and I. too. can
preach beautifully," I added
by the way of a parting shot.
He grew silent and stepped
aside.
Afterwards he followed me
to the wagon. He whispered
something to Pete, who
laughed. Then he walked
down again into the cellar.
From the house came the
sound of clattering dishes and
pungent odor of rendered fat.
Two female voices penetrated
down to the cellar and I stopp-
ed to listen. Presently I
heard his voice again from be-
hind me. It was half-dark in
the cellar and there was an
, evil expression on his olive-
complexioned face. I shra-k
back inwardly.
"So it is in sacred goods
you would like to deal ? Well,
well." he muttered to himsolf.
and his lips shaped them-
selves into an indifferent
smile.
He walked about the cellar
as if look-ne for something lie
needed. When I had emftied
the last basket and was about
to leave the cellar, ho came
over to me. placed his fat hnnd
upon my shoulder in a jovial
manner, and blurted ou':
"Well, brother, if you want
to deal in some celestial, sa-
cred article, call on ate to-
morrow. You ought to be in
business, brother, so come to
me."
I wanted to say something,
but Pete was calling me aloud
and BO I left. Back in the
driver's seat. Pete treated me
to a fine swig and. to cheer
me up further, said thai even
if we got through before
twelve o'clock, we would re-
turn to the coal yard exactly
at noon. He knew how to
manage it. We delivered the
rest of the coal at some house
in another street. The lady
of the house, a stout, middle-
aged woman, would ne-. t-r
have dreamed of interesting
herself in a coal carrier like
me. had not Pete announced
to her in a loud voice that I
was her countryman. The
woman blushed and fled into
the house, and after I was
back in the driver's seat, I
noticed two women's faces
peep out from behind the win-
dow curtain.
II
The work at the coal yard
must have been very hard, for
on Saturday evening I looked
at myself for the first time
in a mirror, in the cheap hotel
I was >taying at. I was fright-
ened by my own appearance.
My fact* looked haggard, and
my whole powerful body
seemed to haw- grown much
smaller.
Long I stood before the
mirror and tried to find the
comical thing about me which
had given rise to general
laughter at the coal yard. An
old hunch-backed Pole, who
looked as though he had once
formed part of a coal moun-
tain, had persecuted me the
whole week with such malice
that one might have thought

Capital Punishment
in Ancient Jewry
Bv JOSEPH MARGOSHES
(continued from last week)
cases where human life was
in the balance, they would not
rely on mere reasoning or
guess work.
The Gemara gives the fol-
lowing interpretation to the
passage. "And K o h e 1 e t ;i
sought ... to judge capital
cases without witnesses and
without warning": A "Bath
Kol" (Divine Voice) was
heard from heaven saying:
"This should not be done, be-
cause the Torah commands
that only on the evidence of
two witnesses could an accus-
ed be sentenced to death."
The Gemara relates the fol-
lowing story of Rabbi Simeon
ben Shetach. He once saw a
man who with unsheathed
sword was pursuing another
man and ran after him into
a half-ruined building. R. Si-
meon gave chase but entered
the house too late. He found
the pursued dead and the mur-
derer holding the sword which
was dripping with blood. "Vi-
cious man," he exclaimed,
"who killed the man, you or
I? What can I do. when the
Torah expressly commands
that only by the testimony of
two witnesses who have
themselves seen the murder
can any one be condemned?"
(Sanh. 37).
The witnesses were never
coerced, or encouraged, to
testify against the accused.
On the contrary, they them-
selves had to undergo a strict
examination.
The President of the San-
hedrin would question them in
the following manner:
"Perhaps you base your
statements on appearances
only, perhaps you have only
heard about it but not seen it
yourself: perhaps someone
has told you about it; possibly
you do not know that we will
examine you thoroughly and
make a searching investiga-
tion. You must know that
this is not a matter of monev
but human life. In matters
of money one may expiate his
sins by giving money for char-
ity, but in this case it is pos-

sible that through your fault
innocent blood may be shed
and the blood guilt will m{
on you and yours for genera,
tions to come, to the end of
the world. You know that he
who destroys the life of one
person is like he has destroy,
ed the whole world.
"However, should you seek
to evade telling us everything
you know about the murder,
then, know that this is a great
sin, as the Torah commands
that one must testify. .\w
need you have false compas-
sion on the murderer, because
it is written that when the
criminal is destroyed, there a
joy for the just." (Sanh. 37).
One of the ost important
scholars, who lived about one
hundred years B. C. E., at the
time Jewish law assumed de-
finite form, was the above
named R. Simeon ben She-
tach. At that time there was
the great struggle between
the two sects.the Sadduces
and the Pharisees and it fell
to the lot of R. Simeon, as
the President of the Sanhe-
drin, to impose more death
penalties than any of the for-
mer Jewish Judges.
He was one of the first
Judges to introduce the sys-
tem that witnesses at a trial
must be thoroughly examin-
ed, but in an ingenious man-
ner. This can be seen from
his statement: "Increase the
investigation of the witness-
es, and be careful with your
words, lest your very words
lead them to falsify." (Pirke
Abboth, chap. I, Mishnah8).
He was not only a strict ad-
herent of the law requiring
two witnesses, but he was al-
so a very impartial Judge and
would not even spare or favor
the King, when it was a mat-
ter of observing the law.
The Gemara (Sanh. 19) re-
lates certain incident: It so
happened that a servant of
the King was accused of mur-
der. The case was brought
before the Court. The accus-
ed was brought in for exam-

ination, but the King was in-
formed by the Court that, as
owner of the slave, he too
would have to be present at
the trial.
When the King entered the
court-room he immediately
wanted to sit down, but R. Si-
meon forbade him to do it,
saying that as he had come to
court as a co-accused, he too,
must, according to the Torah,
stand during trial.
The King became very an-
gry, because he considered it
an insult to his Majesty, and
said: "I will not listen to your
words, but I want to know
what the other judges will
say." The others, however,
who were not as strong in
character, were silent. Simeon
ben Shetach, being a just
Judge, became indignant and
said to his colleagues: "You
are silent because you are a-
fraid; may He come who
knows all thoughts and pun-
ish you."
That the people sided with
the fearless Judge is well
proved by the legend that im-
mediately thereafter all these
judges met with a sudden
death.
His severity in the admin-
istration of justice drew the
enmity of many who sought
revenge.

Emunah Chapter O. E. S.
On last Thursday night the
Emunah Chapter held its in-
stallation of officers. The new
officers were inducted into of-
beautiful ceremony in which
Mrs. Dora Reynolds, Grand
Instructor, acted as the in-
stalling officer assisted by
Mrs. Angie Mank past grand
Matron of the State of Florida
acting as Chaplain, and Mrs.
Etta Wolfe Worthy Matron of
the Lodge acting as Marshall,
and Mrs. Grace Crane as Or-
ganist.
Those installed were: Flo-
rence Bacher, Worthy Ma-
tron; Robert Wallis, Worthy
Patron; Annette Fine, worthy
associate matron, Sadye Rose
Secretary; Anna Benjamin,
Treasurer; Ella Kahn, Con-
ductor and Ella Kaiser, asso-
ciate conductor. Of the Five
Po:nts, only four were install-
ed because of the absence of
fice by a very impressive and
one. Mrs. Fannie Quadow as
Ruth, Sadye Fleischman as
Esther, Josephine Lobazyn as
Martha, Estelle Steinberg as
Flecta, Bertha Halpern as
Chaplain, Anna Broach as
Marshal, Gussie Harkin as
Warder and Herman Fleisch-
man as Sentinel.
Past matron and patron
jewels were presented to Mr.
and Mrs. Ed. Wolfe the retir-
ing matron and patron of the
lodge, by Mrs. Dora Reynolds
Grand Instructor in a very in-
spiring address of apprecia-
tion for their services.
There was a musical pro-
gram in which Max Schiur
and Mrs. Clara Holden took
part.
Gifts were presented to the
retiring officers of the lodge.
had an only son, whom he lov-
ed dearly. His enemies
brought two false witnesses
who testified that his son had
commited a crime involving
capital punishment. Although
the accused emphatically pro-
tested his innocence and stat-
ed that the matter was a
frame-up by his father's en-
emies, the Court had no other
alternative but to condemn
him to death.
When the yong man was
being led to the place of exe-
cution, the two witnesses
swayed by remorse, came to
the Court and confessed. The
happy father was full of joy.
He thought that the life of
his son was saved. The young
man, however, who was well
versed in jurisprudence, and
faithful to the Jewish law,
persuaded his father that the
prestige of the law would suf-
fer if he were to be freed.
"If you wish the law to get
its proper support through
you, if you want the law to be
respected, that people should
not say that in truth I am
guilty but was saved because
I am your son, then you must
make me the threshold over
the Jewish law will pass tri-
umphantly."
And the yong man, though
innocent, was executed. (Yer-
ussalmi, Sanhedrin, perek A.
Halacha 5).
Our great men sought to
limit the strict law of the To-
rah by various interpretations
and safeguards, so that capi-
tal punishment should become
almost impossible. And just
as Rabbi Simeon denied the
existence of a rebellious son,
so it may be stated that in an-
cient Jewry capital punish-
ment most likely never occur-
ed; but, then, why was it
written ?"That it be studied
for the reward therefor."
Adventures of A
Peddler
(Continued from Page 4)
my presence at the coal yard
had reopened an old wound
of this. He called me every
Jewish name and nickname
he had heard in his native
town in Poland. Pete would
laugh until he lost his breath,
but he would hasten to assure
me that no harm was meant.
I spent all day Sunday and
the whole of the following
night In deliberating and hesi-
tating, until Monday morning,
as I was lying upon my bed,
I shouted to the dirty, smoke-
stained ceiling of my room:
"No, I won't get up! Even if
I have to starve to death, I
will not go back to work a-
mong such human beasts!"
Later in the day I wandered
all over the town in search of
another source of income, but
wherever I went I found only
occasion toregret my rashness
in giving up the "steady posi-
tion" Mr. A. had procured for
me. Once, while crossing the

small bridge over which I had
driven out of the yard the
first time, I met the priest.
He recognized and stopped
me.
"Well, are you already in
business?" he asked laughing,
and as he laughed, he disclos-
ed a red mouth full of gold
teeth.
I was almost frightened by
him and was about to walk
away with-out making any
reply, but he detained me in
such a friendly manner that I
answered indifferently.
"I am looking for work."
He took my hand and said
in a fatherly way: "You
needn't look for work. Come
with me and I will get you
employment at something
agreeable. You are a capable
Jew; all Jews are capable.
Come with me."
I followed him mechani-
cally, as though under some
hypnotic spell, He walked in
advance and muttered some-
thing, while I trudged slowly
behind, haunted by dark fore-
bodings which painted to me
a hard, cold winter in a
strange and remote city,
friendless and alone, and back
in New York a fiancee, re-
sponsibilities.
It would seem that I had
decided to accompany the
priest, for my feet began to
move along faster and as we
drew near that place of busi-
ness, I was already walking
ahead of him.
He opened the door and we
entered into a shop full of
Christian icons. The walls, the
windows, and even the floor
were covered with Jesuses,
Marys, Peters, and other sa-
cred pictures of the Christian
Church. A minute later we
were already seated in the
small backroom of the store,
and a thin Polish Jew with a
muffler around his neck and
a large diamond ring on his
hand,,was teaching me, with
the priest's aid, how to peddle
the icons in the city.
"You will get rich, broth-
er," the priest said, tapping
me on the shoulder as if we

A splendidly attended meet-
ing of the Council of Jewish
Women was held at Kaplan
Hall, in Temple Israel, on
Wednesday afternoon last,
Mrs. Benjamin Axelroad, the
president, presiding. Mrs.
Cornell Stoiber delivered the
address of the afternoon on
the "Royal Road to Happi-
ness." Mrs. Herbert U. Feib-
elman sang several solos in a
musical program that was
presented during the meeting.
Miss Gertrude Moody spoke
on the coming to Miami of
the famous novelist Fannie
Hurst, and announced that re-
servations for the Fannie
Hurst dinner could be made
through the representative
of the Council, Mrs. Eugene
Schwartzenberg, 622 15th St.,
Miami Beach.
After the business and pro-
gram was concluded a very
enjoyable social hour was
spent at which refreshments
were served.
were old friends. "Look at
youn countryman here. He
came here without a whole
garment on his back, and
went to work in a brewery.
Today he goes to Chicago
every month to buy goods."
They held out before me
such rosy prospects that I
became enthusiastic and said
to myself, "Let it be idols,
just so I make a living."
And as a matter of fact, the
business proved to be quite
profitable. It was not long
before Christmas, when this
kind of goods is quite market-
able. What I needed was
justification for my action,
but this I soon found when I
sold a saint with a bunch of
keys to one of the coal shov-
elers I knew.
