SELF RESPECT!
The Community Chest which is an integral part of the life
of Miami has extended its drive for an additional two weeks
period.
In the first week of its drive only about forty-seven per cent
of the amount needed has been pledged. Shall it be said that
Miami citizens are amiss in their duty towards theif fellow men?
We are not particularly interested just now in the attitude of
the non-Jew towards the Community Chest. We are however
vitally interested in the demeanor of the JEWISH RESIDENT
of Miami towards the Community Chest. The Jew has always
been proud of his record throughout the ages, of social justice,
of charity. Never in the history of the Jewish people has a
REAL JEW FAILED TOWARDS THE POOR. Miami Jewry,
from what we have been informed, has been sadly remiss in its
duty. Comparatively few have done their share. Shall that
people whose designation for "CHARITY" is the synonvm for
"Justice" fail themselves in this crucial hour?
We call upon all the Jewish Community of Greater Miami to
do their share. If you can't ffive much, give something. Enroll
in that army of self respecting Jews who do their duty towards
their fellow men and thereby, themselves.
If you have not been aproached by a representative of the
Community Chest don't hold back. See any officer of the Beth
David, of Temple Israel, of the Bnai Brith or of the Jewish Wel-
fare Bureau and they will be delighted to HELP YOU TO HELP
YOURSELF RETAIN YOUR SELF-RESPECT.

Brown then spoke and said
that though he had taken
part in many communal af-
fairs none in his mind equal-
led the work that he was per-
mitted to do help erect this
Talmud Torah in all the fifty-
five years of his life.
Those who were present,
and took part in the cere-
monies, were: Samuel J. Spec-
tor, Mr. and Mrs. Novak of
Patterson, N. J. relatives of
Mrs. Jacob Fabian, Nathan

dor Cohen, Mrs. Lewis Brown,
Mrs. Morris Dubler, Mrs.
Minie Feuer, and Mrs. Harry

monies.
Immediately after the lay-

first celebration to take place
in the new Talmud Torah was
held when the guests at the

to one of the unfinished class
rooms and took part in a "kid-

Prominent Zionist
Orator Adresses
Local District
Those who failed to be pre-
sent at the meeting of the lo-
cal Zionist district last Sun-
day night, at Kaplan Hall in
Temple Israel, missed the
spiritual treat of their lives,
and the oporptunity to listen
to one of the most informa-
tive addresses delivered in
Miami on Zionist work and
activities.
Mr. Charles Cowan, New
York attorney and Zionist
worker of note delivered the
main address of the evening
and though he spoke for an
hour and a half the audience
wanted him to continue and
at the request of the Chair-
man of the local district he
explained several phases of
Palestinian difficulties in con-
nection with equitable taxa-
tion, and the railway freight
cost.
Presenting the problem of
the Jew from an economic
view he traced the history of
the Jews from the beginning
of the Diaspora to the present
time and paid particular at-
tention to the situation which
confronts the Jews in Eastern
Europe and laid particular
stress upon the development
of Palestine as the only solu-
tion to the question of saving
the millions of starving Jews.
From the spiritual view
point he traced the growth of
the Ghetto, the development
of the rich traditional culture
of the Jews first in Babylon
and later in the Russian pale,
and emphasized the point
that with the Jewish children
of today wandering away
from Jewish learning and not
being afforded that Jewish
traditional training without
which the Jewish nation can-
not exist, that the only place
where that training and
learning can be properly im-
planted midst the proper sur-
roundings in Palestine.
Mr. Harry I. Lipnitz open-
ed the meeting and present-
ed Harry Simonhoff formerly
of Miami and one time presi-
dent of the local district.
Mr. Simonhoff was Chair-
manof the meeting and then
presented Rabbi Dr. Jacob H.
Kaplan of Temple Israel who
very graciously said that he
had come to listen to Mr. Co-
wen the speaker of the even-
ing and would for that rea-
son merely greet the audi-
ence. After Mr. Cowen con-
cluded his address Rabbi Kap-
lan expressed his deep ap-
preciation of having been pre-
sent to hear such a splendid
and informative talk on Zion-
ism.

EDITORIAL
AN AWAKENING!
So much has been said in
the past few years about the
need of Jewish Education
that at last the continual re-
petition is about to bring re-
sults iii that section of Jew-
ish life where it is most need-
ed.
Throughout the past cen-
turies the cry of the real Jew,
the Jew with a sense of re-
sponsibility and an eye to-
wards the future, has been
"Chadorim," "Talmud To-
rahs," "Yeshivos." When the
Jew in the Middle Ages
or in later times in England,
Russia, Galicia, Roumania or
wherever he may have been
has had but little materially,
spiritually however, he has
been rich. He has taken the
food out of his own mouth to
provide "schar limud" (tui-
tion fees) so that his child
might receive Jewish Educa-
tion.
However, in enlightened
America where the culture of
the Country has been pointed
to with pride, those so called
'"intelligentzia," the "society"
or "upper four hundred" have
been ashamed to teach their
children anything of their
own rich heritage of history,
religion and language. Be-
tween the Orthodox Jews this
has not been so marked.
There is not a Jewish Com-
munity in the Country where
some effort has not been
made to have teachers and to
teach the children something,
if not much, at least to "da-
ven" in Hebrew. The non-
Orthodox, however, has con-
tented himself with the read-
ing of these prayers and the
teaching of history to his
children in the English lan-
guage.
It is therefore with a sense
of delight that we read the
utterances of men like Rabbi
Abba Hillel Silver, the re-
nowned Reform Rabbi and
Orator, who urge upon their
congregations the necessity
of the teaching of Hebrew to
their own children. Or when
we read locally that the need
of Talmud Torahs is begin-
ning to be impressed upon
their congregants by Rabbis
other than the Rabbi of Beth
David. It is indeed a welcome
turn of events when such
realizations begin to come
home.
Jews can only be Jews, we
submit, when they realize the
need of and appreciate the
usefulness of institutions of
learning as Talmud Torahs,
and the importance of the He
brew language.
REFLECTIONS ON LIBERAL' JUDA-
ISM IN ENGLAND
There is not the slightest
doubt but that Liberal Juda-
ism in England, for all its
pandering to the fancies of
the moment, and supported
though it is by the bottom-
less purses of its wealthy
sponsors and supporters, has
reached its zenith and is now
on the wane. English Jewry
has come to realize that the
basis of Liberalism is as solid
as the shifting sands.
The brilliant expositions
and keenly analytical mind
which Chief Rabbi Dr. Hertz
brought to bear in his recent
denunciation of the Liberal
movement, has done a great
deal to clear the air. He has
amply demonstrated that the
much lauded new paths mean
setting at naught every ves-
tige of Traditional Judaism
and all that Judaism holds
holy. Dazzled tho some may
seem by its ephemeral suc-
cess, and bewildered though
they may be by the new shib-
boleths, those who watch can
see that the bubble is com-
mencing to burst. Liberal
Judaism, says Dr. Hertz,
means the abandonment of
the Abrahamic covenant, of
the Sabbath, of the sacred
days of the Jewish year, of
Yom Kipper, of Kashruth, and
by every other means derid-
ing the Jewish scriptures,
breaking with the hallowed
Jewish institutions, and the
Jewish past itself.
Aptly are the thoughts of
Wordsworth on the French
Revolution made applicable to
Liberal Judiasm: "Perpetual
emptiness! Unceasing change!
No single volume paramount,
no code, no master spirit, no
determined road; but equally
"a want of books and men."
When he was in America
recently Dr. I. I. Mattuck, the
Rabbi of the London Liberal
Congregation, stated that the
Jewish youth in England were
conservative in their affilia-
tions. It is on the youth that
the furthering of a Movement
and its success depends.
Where they are opposed to it
as they are towards Liberal
Judaism in Englandit must
wither and die, in spite of all
the bolstering up its founders
may give it. Strong and virile
bodies, like the "Young Israel
Society" Movement, fostered,
encouraged, and kept up here
by the Jewish youth itself,
assist in the maintenance of
Traditional Judaism. Liberal
Judaism will make no further
headway in England, because
its philosophical stand has
been found to rest upon an
utterly weak foundation.
Let me explain simply the
attitude adopted towards Lib-
eralism by Anglo-Jewry as a
whole: Almost from the time
the Law was given on Sinai
there have been those of our
race and faith who have pro-
claimed aloud that Judaism
binds down too much, who
have found the enactments
too oppressive, and have ex-
pressed the fervent desire to
merge with their surrounding
neighbors. There were Israel-
ites in the wilderness who
sighed for the fleshpots of
Egypt, and there were also
those who, despite the direct
prohibition, went out to gath-
er Manna on the Sabbath.
Since then, Traditional Juda-
ism has been incessantly sub-
jected to attack. We have had
the Sadducees and the Ka-
raites both for themselves
seeking to usurp the claim of
being the true exponents of
Judaism.
Then there were the Jewish
Hellenists, who lost their
knowledge of the Hebrew lan-
guage, so that the Holy Writ
had to be translated into the
vernacular, and prayers had
to be offered in the Greek
tongue. But these sects have
disappeared in the endless
evolution of the world's pro-
gress, and Judaism, the Juda-
ism of the Torah as practiced
by Traditional Jews, is still
observed by the vast majority
of Jews. Whereas present-day
Jewry are the descendants of
observant forebears the chil-
dren of the reformers, wheth-
er of lesser or greater degree,
have disappeared throughout
the ages by merging with
those of the dominant faith.
They no longer know of Juda-
ism or of Jews, and if the
truth be told, those present-
day non-Jews with Jewish
blood coursing through their
veins, are not infrequently to
be found among our worst
and most virulent foes. As it
has been in the past, so will it
be with that modern sect
the Liberal Jews. To these
Jews Judaism appears, as it
has appeared to all reformers
in our ranks, the sectional
cult of an ancient race. It does
not seem conceivable to them
that this religion of a people,
which existed before the Em-
pires of Babylon, Rome, and
Greece came into being, can
be practiced in their day. Nor,
in their eyes, is it modernized
to the life of their century,
with all the. improvements
that science can introduce.
Judaism, however, does live
and flourish, and it is one of
the most important factors of
the world in which we live
proving, beyond the shadow
of doubt, that Judaism was
given to the Jewish race to
keep in its entirety, to act as
its trustees, to guard and
keep ever green. It is not sole-
ly in its message the creed of
a particular race, for a speci-
fic age, but was intended to
be a religion to govern the
very life of the human for all
time, universal in the applica-
tion of its principles. We,
however, have the special
privilege of being its expon-
ents and teachers.
The leaders of the Liberal
cult proclaim thai thev are
interpreting Judaism in' mod-

If We Could Turn Back The

Oh, if we could turn back the
years of youth
And travel the boyhood

How happy we'd be to skin

Or tie a tin can to a tail

Or get the old gang again.

:: Things
. THEATRICAL
...

The Burton-Garrett Play-
ers announce as the second
attraction at their new home
in the Flagler Theatre, the
delightful comedy success.
"The Circus Lady."
Carrying as it does, the at-
mosphere of the "sawdust
arena," and yet that of the
narrow-minded small town
community, the play is pack-
ed full with situations that
are comic and yet semi-tragic.
Majorie Garrett has one of
her best roles of the season
as "Le Petite Patrice," a par-
a chute jumper who falls
from her baloon to the front
yard tree of the village min-
ister. He, of course, falls in
love with the irrepressible
Irish performer, and the fact
that the minister (Bob Bur-
ton) is already engaged to
the village belle, brings on
the comedy. The villian,
"Pat's" step-father, appears
upon the scene, as does the
wild man of Borneo.
Naturally, the action of the
story develops tense drama
as well as its humorous mo-
ments, and the Burton-Gar-
rett Players can be expected
to do the most with the ex-
cellent material offered by
"The Circus Lady." The Flag-
ler Theater Orchestra under
the direction of Howard Russ-
man has several numbers
especially prepared for next
week's show, and the "entre-
acte" presentation is expected
to provide exceptional enter-
tainment for the coming
week.
A FISH STORY
much to his disgust, missed
his gefullte fish altogether
that evening, and every Sab-
bath for a whole year. You
can imagine, Leonard, how he
enjoyed his first Sabbath
meal when the year was over,
and when, with many tears
and great ceremony, and In-
numerable 'B'rachoth,' his
mother again handed round
portions of gefullte fish.
The fish into which Uncle
Isi's soul had gone was buried
as the Rav had ordained, and
never, within the remem-
brance of the people, was such
a cortege known as that
which attended its funeral
The wonderful tale was hand-
ed down from father to son,
and to this day in the ancient
Jewish cemetery at Vienna
you may see a monument en-
graved with the likeness of
a fish, and if you inquire of
its origin from some of the
oldest Jewish inhabitants, you
will hear the same story that
I have related to you this
evening."
"Phew!" said Leonard, who
had just finished making a
hearty meal, "I can't eat any
more. This story has spoiled
my appetite!"
"I should say," remarked
Ruth pulling a wry face and
wrinkling up her little nose,
"that after such an occurrence
the family should never have
tasted fish again for the rest
of their lives."
Bohbeh laughed. "I think
the rabbi also had a tender
spot for little Benjamin," she
said, "and that's why he made
it only a year."
"Good old Rav!" said Leon-
ard. "I doubt whether Geff
would be so lenient with me.
Anvhow, thank Heavens such
things can't happen nowa-
days!"
(Continued from Last Week) ^ HAPPY UNION
"The Rav lived close by, and
when he heard the man's tale
he became very agitated. He
threw off his slippers, his
yarmelke, and his house Jack-
et, and called for his boots,
his hat, and his gabardine.
When he saw the fish he
breathed certain words over
it, fluttered the leaves of a
much-benumbed holy book,
and muttered into his payoth.
" 'The fish is a Jewish soul,'
he said at length. 'Some pious
man has fallen into the river
and his spirit has gone into
the fish.'
"Breathlessly they told him
of the remarkable resem-
blance which both had noticed
in the fish's voice to the voice
of Uncle Isi. The Rav nodded
his head 'Avaddeh, a-vaddeh,
it is he none other than he.
The fish must be laid out on
the "Tahare-bret" and wash-
ed, and given burial according
to Jewish Law, and you must
sit "Shiv'a" a whole year. In
thanksgiving that you have
been saved from the sin of
eating your uncle's soul,
neither you nor your children
must touch any fish during
that time. Then only will his
"neshomah" have peace.'
"Thus little Benjamin.
What are human beings
striving for? Liberty, Free-
dom. But aren't we free? It
all depends upon what we call
Freedom. Haven't we all the
Liberty we want? There is
ample evidence that mankind
is not at all as free as it
might be, that humans do not
enjoy that Liberty to which
they have a right. And this
lack of complete liberty, this
want of Freedom, and this
yearning of men and women
from liberation of the thral-
dom which is still theirs,
gives point to Passover, the
Ancient Jewish Festival of
Liberation. Thousands of
years have elapsed since the
Children of Israel marched

Date Sandwich Bread

2 teaspoons soda.
1 3-4 cup of boiling water,
combine these three ingredi-
ents and allow to cool.
2 tablespoons shortening.
2 scant cups of sugar.
2 eggs wel beaten.
1 cup of nuts (unbroken).
3 cups of flour.
1 teaspoon baking powder.
Mix in order given. Add
cooled date mixture. Turn in-

ies and centuries. The Jew-
ish people, the world over,
have held aloft the Torch of
Freedom, have kindled from
age to age the Blazing Fires
of Liberty.
And when the Children of
Israel marched out of Egypt
they baked their own un
leavened bread, Matzoth they
called it. It was customary
for every Jew to bake his own
Matzoth. But there came a
time when that was impos-
sible. A complex civilization,
the many demands that con-
stantly made upon the time
and energies of man called for
specialization and so there
came into being the Matzoth
Bakeries, the most outstand-
ing of which is the B. Manis-
scewitz Company, of Cincin-
nati, Ohio, founded in 1888.
Pesach is a unique holiday.
To observe this holiday pro-
perly, it is essential to have
the Unique Matzoth, the Man-
ischewitz Matzoth and Mat-
zoth Products. There are
none like them. The moral is
obvious. Pesach unique. No
other feast in the Jewish Cal-
endar is like it. Manischewitz
Matzoth is unique, there is no
other Matzoth like it.

do not want any "moderniz-
ing" of Judaism nor any fresh
interpretation.
Jews in England hold that
not only is Liberal Judaism
un-Jewish; not only does it
fraternize and flirt with
Christianity without having
the courage formally to give
adherence to the dominant
faith; not only do its leaders
sometimes throw ou thints
and "feelers" for the casting
aside of all ceremonies and
symbols which yet cause it to
be nominally recognized as
being attached to a particular
individual creed, but it is ac-
tually unreligious. The ortho-
dox Jew today, no less than
throughout the ages, lives his
own life, adapting life to the
Torah, and not the Torah life.
Without the Torah, which is
the grain that cannot be
blown away as the chaff is by
the winds, Judaism becomes
just a shell, a body without a
soul. The Liberal Jew rejects
the divine inspiration of the
Torah, which Jewish martyrs
in their thousands have died
to uphold, and they desire to
uproot the foundations of Ju-
daism. They go even further.
They tel us that religion is a
private matter for the indiv-
idual conscience. There must
be no hide-bound regulations
enacted for a person to keep.
"If a majority of our mem-
bers at a meeting," Rabbi
Mattuck has exclaimed, "de.
tide upon any reform, that re.
form must be carried out."
English Jewry realizes what
this means.' Any creed, with
the least pretensions to be
worthy of the name, has to

LIKE FATHERS, LIKE
SONS
By David Asher
The world is thinking with
concern about youth; and
youth is thinking seriously
about the world. Thinking
seriously in its own way, and
not according to text-books.
There is the case of a young
man, rather capable, gifted
with a positive and outspok-
en personality, but, unfortun-
ately, with very fe wideas. Al-
though his associations with
terrestrial problems was pure-
ly academic, he, nevertheless,
made it a point to solve all of
them, from political fallacies
to moral anachronisms. Sud-
denly, and for no apparent
reason, while in his last year
at college, he was attacked
with a severe spell of practi-
cal intellectualism, radicalism
or idealismthese terms are
hopelessly confused in most
young people's minds. He be-
came spokesman for the dis-
contents, president of the
Progressive Club which pro-
tested .the late shelling of
Nanking and agitated for
Sacco and Vanzetti, was near-
ly expelled from the horrified
university which harbored
this club, and made speeches
for the Socialist Party. Asked
the reason for his unqualified
championship of all. causes
lowly and suppressed, he ans-
wered with a non-commital,
"I believe in it."
This was not the truth, for
youth believes in practicallv
nothing outside of itself, ex-
cept the demonstrable verities
of science, and this young
man did not expect to be tak-
en seriouly. Indeed, his inten-
tion was to mislead the ques-
tioner and the world at large
as to his real motives, and for
this reason he assumed a
false, ambiguous and detach-
ed attitude with respect to the
one serious activity of his
life.
Age, which is always deadly
are ill-advised from the moral
and religious points of view,
but they now go further and
spread a knowledge of our
faith where ignorant or in-
complete knowledge sits en-
throned. They exclaim "We-
must have, not a watered Ju-
daism, but Traditional Juda-
ism, and nothing but Tradi-
tional Judaism." And they
realize that the use of the
term "Tradition" would be
absurd in itself if it did not
also mean progress and Eng-
lish Jewry knows that, in
spite of all fulminations, Tra-
ditional Judaism is quite com-
patible with modern life. Just
because that is the attitude
towards Liberal Judaism in
England a magnificently
built edifice for a synagogue

of Judiasm will fail, for it is

dation of true religion.

in earnest and has lost its
sense of humor, demands that
youth share in its responsibil-
ities. The proprietary instinct
is strong and would create
youth in its education but the
dressing of the adolescent in
adult clothes, the imposing on
a plastic mind the brittle pre-
conceptions of age?
But the Nemesis of the
iron-willed father is the self-
willed child; youth inherits
thedeep, profounder instincts
of the race. Although it may
change the drab rags impos-
ed on it for a brighter red and
yellow, the selfishness of life
clings to it like a shadow. If
only our elders were not in-
fluenced in their judgment of
youth by the superficial pro-
minence of a bit of bunting,
the college yell and the night
club, they could see that be-
neath the arrogant swagger
youth presents to the world
there beats a heart as cold,
and as selfish, and as ambi-
tious as their own. Then tru-
ly- it could say, beat of my
heart, flesh of my flesh, and
be ashamed.
Although youth in many
cases does not fully compre-
hend the unrrelenting yoke
of life, it does take its living
seriously, and all of his devil-
may-care follies, his sophisti-
cation and indifference are
but a mask behind which the
calculating instinct cooly
operates. He is almost asham-
ed of his sordidness and tries
to laugh it off with a joke or
a petting party.
Our young friend of the
opening chapter was not in
the radical and enlightened
movements because he believ-
ed in them; his motive was
more materialistic, ulterior
and selfish. He knew this and
was young enough and naive
enough to feel the shame. The
truth was, he had lost in the
race for college honors. The
recognized societies and publi-
cations had ignored his candi-
dacy, and in his last year he
experienced a distinct need
for graduating president of
something or other. So he af-
filiated himself with the
"cast-offs,"as the radical
and intellectual societies are
often disparagingly known in
campus lingo because they are
the refuge of many, like our
friend, who fail in the social
and conservative activities
where competion is more
keen. Here he was able to cut
a figure and the urge for prac-
tical accomplishment was sat-
isfied.
A classmate of his who
made the frats and teams
could say what he felt more
bluntly. He refused to see why
the United States should not
send marines to Nicaragua if
it could get away with it; or
why a capitalistically controll-
ed government should not
pass anti-strike legislation
and betray its trust even
though it was a democracy
and was pledged to protect
and forward the interests of

the majority. Indeed, democ-
racy and equality had no place
in his vocabulary. He main-
tained the theory which he
strove to put into practice,
that a born class of leaders
inherently destined for the
rank should rule, that the
great mass of people were
common clay to be fashioned
and exploited by the one who
could and would; he out-Niet-
sche'd Nietsche, although he
was unfamiliar with the Ger-
man's philosophy and thought
in the words of Samuel But-
ler, that there are two classes
of people in the worldthose
who sin and those who are
sinned againstand that it is
much better to belong to the
class that sins.
Therein he expresses the
ideals, if they can be called
ideals, not only of himself,
but also of his friend who ap-
peared rather diametrically
opposed to him in principle
and utterance, and of that
youth which is consciously
and optimistically ambitious,
the kind of youth which is
capable and posses the ability
and the clearmindedness that
will bring it to positions of
leadership, either in the rul-
ing party or in the opposi-
tion. He recognizes only one
obstacle in his way to suc-
cess, his own limitations. He
is a realist mfich more than
his elders who are actors in -
the world drama and cannot
see with the eyes of the spec-
tator. His conception of suc-
cess is the same as that of
his age, material success, for
the simple reason that youth
is too impatient and on the
average unoriginal to create
a world of new values and
standards. He takes the world
ready-made and plans to fill
some position already created
and still filled by another
whom he makes his hero, wor-
ships, emulates and resolves
to supplant or succeed.
Idealism as an innate qual-
ity peculiar to certain psychi-
cal make-ups appears in
young people in about the
same proportion as it does
among older people, but where
it appears, youth tends to
scoff at it and almost pity it-
self. A young man, who had
been examining his soul, told
me that when he was of high
school age he used to read
Shaw, Mencken and Upton
Sinclair with great avidity
and enthusiasm and that his
heart would burn with sym-
pathy for oppressed minori-
ties and weak majorities. But
(recently,he is now a law
student and a political worker
for Mr. Vare in Philadelphia,
he picked up "OH" by Up-
ton Sinclair, and confessed
with .a deprecating laugh
that his boyhood enthusiasms
were of the past, that the
book evoked in him no re-
sponse of sympathy for the
exploited worker and that Mr.
Sinclair's hero, the idealistic
son of an oil magnate who,
as he related the story to me,
devoted his life and fortune
to the remedying of the oil-
workers position, elicited not
admiration, but pity "for be-
ing such a damn fool."
A young woman who saw
a play in which the heroine
once thwarted in love refused
another suitor with the ex-
clamation, "I have loved once
and will never love again,"
cynically remarked, "An old
moss-back wrote that play."
