Temple To Hold
Annual Meeting
Temple Israel will hold its
annual Congregational meet-
ing for the election of officers
and the transaction of very
important business in Kaplan
Hall, Wednesday evening,
May 15th., at 8 o'clock and all
members of the Congregation

Jewish Attorney
Is Mentioned For
Judgeship Here
Among those most promin-
ently mentioned for apoint-
ment by Gov. Doyle Carlton
to the vacancy in the office
of Circuit Court Judge caused
by the recent resignation of
Judge A. J. Rose, is the name
of Benjamin Axelroad, promi-
nent Jewish attorney and
communal worker.
Mr. Axelroad has been a
resident of Miami for quite
some time and is a very active
member of the American Le-
gion of which he is and has
been for the past several
years one of its officers. He
is the past President of the
local Sholom Lodge of Bnai
Brith and also a member of
the Executive Board of the
Community Chest. He has
been an active worker in local
civic- and charitable organiza-
tions and is well thought of
amongst both Jews and Gen-
Our readers will recall that
when former Gov. Martin was
to make an appointment to
the Civil Court of Record he
would have appointed Mr.
Axelroad to the position were
it not for the debacle caused
by a number of others seek-
ing the position. This gave
the former Governor the op-
portunity of saying that since
the Jewish population was not
united upon its choice he
would appoint none of the
Jewish faith.
Mr. Axelroad is married
and has two children. His wife
is president of the local chap-
ter of the Council of Jewish
Women and is herself one of
the exceptionally active Jew-
ish women of Miami, in Jew-
ish and civic affairs.

Raffle Prize Win-
ners Announced
The raffle held by the
Chesed Shel Ernes Society for
the benefit of the Cemetery
fund resulted in the two
prizes, one a bed room lamp
and the other a boudoir doll
cushion being won by Mr.
Wolf Cohen, pioneer merchant
of Miami. The winning num-
bers were 28 for cushion and
470 for" the lamp.
The Chesed Shel Ernes So-
ciety was organized several
years ago for the purpose of
providing free burial for those
whose families were unable
to pay for the considerable
costs involved. A burial
ground was purchased at the
Woodlawn Cemetery and
beauttifully landscaped and
perpetual care arranged for.
In the few years of its exist-
ence it has already demons-
trated the need for its organ-
A very imposing gateway
and fence have been built
around the burial ground and
will shortly be dedicated with
appropriate ceremonies.
Actively in charge of the
raffle was Mr. Manuel Rippa
one of the oldest Jewish resi-
dent of Miami and South Flor-
ida who was one of the organ-
izers of the Chesed Shel Ernes.

Morris August, of August
and Winter, leaders in the
cloak and suit trade, puffed
at his cigar leisurely. Pater-
nally surveying with satisfied
countenance his "dime de-
light," he lent to it a double
Corona dignity.
"Winter," said he, "we must
build for us a Centre. We had
a good season and the other
boys in our section had also
fine turnovers. We will give
a good contribution and makt;
a Temple that should be a fine
'number,' a very 'good* sell-
er.' "
"But remember, Morris, it
is not enough to build a Cen-
tre. There must be a giving
of ourselves not merely a giv-
ing of something of ours. We
must be really interested in
our product before we can
make it a success."
The individual today finds
himself, unlike his predecss-
sors, living in an age of ma-
chinery and "big business," in
an age of combination and
centralization and mirable
visu, in an age when huge
concrete and steel structures
seek to play with the heavens.
We cannot help but be im-
presed by number, size and
quantity. Caught in the mael-
strom of tremendous finance
and garagantuan enterprise,
the mark of magnitude and
magnificence is indelibly
stamped upon our inner
selves. Pomp and ostentation
become sort of acquired char-
acteristics with us. The man
in the street as well as the
high-powered salesman
speaks of millions and of real
estate subdivisions. Automo-
biles are turned out by the
thousands every week and
musicians and pseudo-artists
seek to keep up with the pace.
Deficiencies in quality we seek
to veneer with quantity. De-
ficiencies in the truth of our
statements we attempt to
bury beneath a mass of de-
tail. The character of an in-
dividual we too often judge
by the quantity of his mater-
ial worth rather than by his
qualities. So strongly has
quantity, size and appearance
been impressed upon our sub-
conscious that in religion too
it is believed that lack of qual-
ity may be made good by add-
ed quantity. The strength of
a religion we appraise by the
glory and magnificence of the
temples and cathedrals rather
than by the beauty of its prin-
ciples and doctrines. We
stress, as it has been often
sagely remarked, "the holi-
ness of beauty and not the
beauty of holiness."
And so this love of appear-
ances and large scale accom-
plishment, impressed upon
the individual in his modern
environment, our "big-busi-
ness" man brings with him to
his religion. Unsatisfied with
the physical appearance of his
House of Worship, and per-
haps rightly so. he eloquently
appeals to the pride of his fel-
low members pointing out
that other congregations have
more beautiful synagogues.
With righteous indignation
he declares that it is an af-
front to the Almighty to wor-
ship Him in such pitiful look-
ing quarters, for how can He
accept their prayers when the
acoustics are so wretched, or
is it because they intone their
prayers with apathy. The
members gallantly respond to
the call. Mortgages are raised
and the Centre is built. Then
comes that great day when
the beautiful edifice, presum-
ably dedicated to the service
of God isot open its bronze
portals to the expectant mul-
titude. The Rabbi speaks and
politicians orate. The golden
key is then auctioned off. It
brings a record price. Is it be-
cause, whisper it only, the
vain glorious bidder may have
the honor of being the only
one to open the Centre until
the High Holy Days are ob-
served? With chant of choir
and fanfare of trumpets, the
edifice is formally opened for
What a sight greets the
eye. The Cararra marble of
the Holy Ark, the beautifully
made pews of oak, the glisten-
ing crystals of the huge
chandeliers the soft carpets
that seem to blot out the
tread of feltall conducive to
wonderful services. What
crowds crowd the House of
God, what throngs its spacious
aislesall enthusiastic and
joyous, all admiring the beau-
ty of their new home. It
thrills the heart and warms
the soul to see som any men,
women and children in the
House of the Lord. And yet,
we are enthused so quickly.
Like a mirage it is beautiful
but like a mirage it is an
illusion and soon passes away.
The throngs, the enthusia-
ism, what were they? Signs
and expressions of vanity and
jealous pride. They came to
view the culmination of a-
nother of their successful
achievements, an example of
their ostentation, They gave,
they spent, they worked and
they constructed not a House
of Worship, wherein the spirit
of religious enthusiasm im-
pelled them to go and to cast
off the burden of worldly
thoughts and cares, but an
edifice that was beautiful on-
ly because of its veneer of ma-
hogany and its tinsel of gold.
What can be more soul-
chilling than a synagogue
that lacks nothing but wor-
Reared to the glory of God,
how often does it serve to
perpetuate the reproach of
man ? And how many of these
edifices, models of architec-
ture and synagogal beauty,
accuse us as hypocritical and
vain, we who had built them
for His glory and yet forsake
His sanctuary?
We do not condemn the ef-
forts of our big business men
to make us Houses of Prayer
more beautiful. Such efforts
need encouragement but we
cannot condone the fact that
enthusiasm and spirit with
which they erect these Cen-
tres are not carried over into
attendance at the synagogue,
into their devotion and into
their prayers.
The Centre or Synagogue, if
it is to serve as such, must
be only an outward material
expression of the spiritual edi-
fice that we have first resolv-
ed to erect in our heart. Cen-
tres cannot be built of rocks
and stones only; they must be
built of living beauty, of fath-
ers, of mothers and of their

Morris August, of August
and Winter, leaders in the
cloak and suit trade, puffed
at his cigar leisurely. Pater-
nally surveying his "dime de-
light," he lent to it a double
Corona dignity, but his face
reflected defeat and dejection.
Winter, his junior partner,
interrupted his reverie. "I
told you, Morris, tha tit is not
enough to build a Centre. We
must be really interested in
our product before we tan
make it a success."
It seems like a fairy tale:
but I have been told that
"once upon a time" the Bible
was a popular book among the
Jews. Now, I know it is mere-
ly famous, and only those who
have good reasons for doing
so, study it from time to time.
The reasons vary among
the different groups of peo-
ple. Dilletante philosophers
study the Bible to refute it;
historians to know how much
history it contains; some
scholars to understand their
Bible criticism, others to be
able to quote and adorn their
lectures. The rabbis, however,
have the best reason of all
the Bible is the meat of their
Have you ever analyzed the
method by which a sermon
comes into being? You may
claim that this is impossible
of analysis, because sermons
always are. The rabbi preach-
es only that which he heard
from his grandfather or
from somebody else's grand-
father, if his own was not a
preacher. I am, however, kind-
er than that. I grant to the
sermon a Hegelian "being and
becoming" which constantly
changes form though not the
matter, and is oblivious of
time. So follow me kindly

duous scientific analysis of

By Morris Goldberg
This age is one of great
achievements in the field of
journalism. It has concerned
itself more with biographical
productions than with any
other type. Yet we are com-
pelled to confess that the
Jewish race has not done jus-
"tice to the memory of ht
great personages that em-
bellish its glorious history.
Unlike the non-Jewish races,
who always honor their bene-
factors, we have paid little at-
tention to those Jews who
have contributed magnificent-
ly to the course of time. It is
many years since the erudite
Dr. Joseph Jacobs conceived
the idea of compiling a sketch
of what Jews have contribut-
ed to civilization. Dr. Jacobs
gave a comprehensive account
of his plans in his first vol-
ume of "Jewish Contributions
to Civilization." Unfortunate-
ly, this profound scholar was
taken from us before he could
continue his noble work, and
it has been left undone to this
day. It was a sad event for
the Jewish people for they
were bereft of one of their
most respected leaders and
outstanding historians.
Tohse of us who are stu-
dents of the Hebrew race
know only too well the lack
of books treating of the ac-
complishments of Jews who
have enriched our modern
age. Even in our large and
magnificent libraries there is
a great number of volumes
devoted to scientists, musi-
cians, artists etc., but within
the pages of these books the
contributing Jews of the
world are seldom, if ever,
mentioned. This causes us to
wonder at the reticence of our
learned journalists who per-
mit such unfairness to exist.
It may be urged that Jewish
journals and newspapers pub-
lish occasionally accounts of
the achievements of distin-
guished Jews, but this will
scarcely satisfy the mass of
the reading public so well as
a volume or number of vol-
umes dealing specifically with
what Jews have done for Sci-
ence, Art, Literature, and all
the other branches of human
endeavor. It" is true that thes-
is a Jewish Encyclopedia, but
the omissions of this great
work would fill many volumes
and would show the enormous
Jewish contributions to civili-
zation that are not even
known by name.
There is no doubt that ig-
norance regarding the value
of Jewish activities to human-
ity is as widespread among
the Jews as among their Gen-
tile friends. This may be at-
tributed to a large extent to
the misrepresenting of every-
thing Jewish by the antiSem-
itic element and equally to the
lack of proper information
that is given to our youth. If
we ask a Jewish boy, who
prides himself on being a
High School graduate, some-
thing regarding the produc-
tions of Antokolski, he is tak-
en aback with surprise. Why,
Antokolski was not in his
High School vocabulary,
therefore, he is totally inno-
cent of there having been
such a Jewish genius. If we
question a young lady, who is
perhaps decorated with a uni-
versity degree, as to who was
La grande Rachel, she will
stare at us as if we were de-
manding the solution to a
mathetical problem. This all
goes to prove that the need of
suitable reading-matter in
book-form is a matter of ne-
cessity. We often say that the
non-Jew cannot appreciate
the great work that Jews
have conferred on human pro-
gress, but is he totally to
No one can gainsay the fact
that there are many capable
Jewish scholars, who have felt
the need of an instructive lit-
erature which would deal with
outstanding Jewish achieve-
ments. And they have done
their best, so it seems, to ans-
wer the call. One of the most
excellent books on the sub-
ject was Caiman Shulman's
Toldoth Chachmay Israel, but
this was written in a rich and
beautiful Hebrew, and was
never translated into the Eng-
lish language. Another useful
book was "The Jew and Civil-
ization" by Ada Sterling,
which gives a brief outline of
what some Jews have con-
tributed to the world. But it
is interspersed with matter
of an extraneous character,
and does not include many
distinguished Jews who are
renowned for their discover-
ies in the physical and biolog-
ical sciences. Other books
treating of this subject have
been written by learned au-
thors, but fall into the mis-
take of representing a con-
glomeration of names which
makes the work appear as a
kind of dictionary. What then
would be most useful to the
average reader who desires to
obtain a clear account of
achievements by individuals
of the Jewish race?
What is most needed is a
series of volumes devoted en-
tirely to the achievements of
Jews in every phase of human
influence on modern progress.
The biographical sketches
should be arranged with ques-
tions for scholastic purpose,
and should prove of great in-
treest to all pupils. This
thought came to me while en-
gaged in lecturing to our edu-
cational and literary societies.
It would be a boon for the
teacher and pupil if such text-
books were obtainable. The
regular curriculum of instruc-
tion could be supplemented
with the graded study of sev-

eral noted Jews, who have
gained world-wide distinction,
and in this way the student,
as well as the teacher, would
become acquainted with a
branch of history that is
shamefully omitted from the
school course. This should, in
my opinion, disperse the col-
ossal ignorance that exists
in our scholastic institutions
regarding the true contribu-
tions of the Jews to human
In the Hebrew schools of
France and Scotland the Jew-
ish child is taught not only
Hebrew, Yiddish and History,
but is thoroughly grounded
in the lives and careers of dis-
tinguished Jews. That is the
main reason that a child edu-
cated after this form can nev-
er be impressed with anti-Se-
mite propaganda. It may be
claimed that the school-mas-
ters in these countries work
in greater harmony with one
another than they do here;
be that as it may, the chief
object of instruction is not
forgotten, namely, to give
the Jewish child a thorough
education together with an
acquaintance with the careers
of leading intellectuals of
their race. One noteworthy
difference between the sys-
tems adopted in the schools
abroad and those in America
is their total impartiality in
the choice of the famous Jew
taken for study. Whether this
individual be orthodox, or re-
formed Jew, agnostic or even
atheist, if the life and career
of the character are worthy
of consideration, the subject
is pursued in all seriousness.
The pupil is carefully explain-
ed the value of the chosen in-
dividual to society. This is
certainly unique in the his-
tory of teaching as practiced
in Hebrew Schools.
[have often heard that He-
brew teachers find it easier to
instruct their pupils in ready
made courses rather than
elaborate in the field of m
em culture. But teach
should find it a pleasure
explore the wide range of U
erary and scientific

simplify it for future inst
tion. In this way a grea
interest will be aroused in
student to acquire a knot]
edge of what was hitherto
closed book. It rests entir
with the teacher whether
desires to turn out merep
rot-like pupils as the result

ter, leaving the stadiums to
be filled by non-college men.
When father sends John to
college he usually intends him
to get culture, which means
acquiring a grea dteal of use-
less knowledge, like Latin and
Planch's Theory of Quanta.
Bernard Brown who labori-
ously works his way through
college also begins under the
same misapprehension. But>
not for long. Both Johnny and
Bernard soon discover that
nine tenths of the courses can
.be passed by cramming two
nights before the exams and
learn to look upon those who
really prepare their daily as-
signments as stupid fools who
don't belong in college, or as
future professors who must
naturally master their sub-
jects. They leave their study-
ing for the last two weeks of
the term and devote their
energies the rest of the year
to the achievement of a place
in the literary, athletic, dra-
matic, or political field, as
their inclinations guide them.
This is why American col-
leges produce extraordinary
few scholars. Since colleges
have been democratized, and
thousandsthe vast majority
who enterhave no taste or
ability for real learning, the
old cloister-like scholarly at-
mosphere has vanished and
given way to bustling, noisy,
practical activity. Even those
whose natural proclivities are
with books are often swept
back by the current into this
miniature every-day world of
practical affairs that is cam-
pus life. College no longer pri-
marily prepares for the pro-
fessions, it is no longer a
cloister divorced from the
world; it has become, chiefly
through the effort of the stu-
dents themselves, the nurs-
ery of practical leadership.
Bernard Brown will still
study Latinthe force of tra-
dition is so great but his
heart and his labors are cen-
tered on the editorship of the
Weekly. Billy Bald who came
for a good time will still get
his good time, but somehow
or other he has fallen into a
position where he can become
president of the X-ian Asso-
ciation. So he gives up many
parties to attend serious, edu-
cative, executive meetings and
becomes chairman of an en-
downment drive which takes
up practically every night in
the week. A successful college
record no longer means a Cum
Laude at commencement, but

No heart should ache with longing
No hurt should go too deep
Grant her age-old desire:
A house to love and sweep.
Give her a man beside her
A kind manand true
And let them work together
And love a lifetime through.
And let her mother children
As gentle women do.
Give her a shelf for dishes,
And a shining box for bread,
A white cloth for her table,
And a white spread for her bed,
A shaded lamp at nightfall,
And a row of books much read.

And let her rest with sleep
No life can truly offer
A peace more sure and deep

College is not a four year
vacation for rich men's sons,
nor is the under-graduate
school an institution of clas-
sical or scientific learning.
The students have rtansform-
ed the campus into a replica
of the outside world, a micro-
cosm in which the same com-
petitions and ambitions that
activate fathers are set up as
standards for the sons. The
rewrads of the market place
and the forum are made the
rewards of the campus, and
the same scramble for posi-
tions of power and honor that
is termed Life in the outside
world is duplicated at college.
Crowded and suppressed in
the world where adults line
the main thoroughfare and
pre-empt the positions of
power, the intelligent and am-
bitious youth has been forced
into the asylum of the college
where he can compete with
equals, first try his wings
and taste the glofy of success
Here he can work and accom-
plish and, what is more im-
portant, here he can see the
results of his accomplish-
ments, a possibility the out-
side world seldom offers.
The campus thus has be-
come a training school and
testing ground for future men
of affairs, a sort of experi-
mental laboratory for busi-
ness men, social, political and
literary leaders, and its im-
portance can scarcely be over-
estimated. This development
