"When the righteous are increased,
The people rejoice;
But when the wicked beareth rule,
The people sigh."
As the Shabuoth holidays ap-
proach, Cong. Ohev Shalom and its
spiritual leader Rabbi Morris A.
Skop prepare to celebrate one year
of organized Jewish Community liv-
ing. Although the Synagogue is sit-
uated in Orlando, its influence has
been felt throughout Central Flori-
da. Jews living in Sanford, Winter
Park, Mt. Dora, Clermont, Lees-
burg, Lakeland, Bartow and many
Jewish students at the University
of Florida, have all felt the inner
peace of "belonging" to a growing
and active Synagogue; As the year
draws to a close many hearts sing
for joy at the accomplishments
achieved. An outstanding progres-
sive Religious School; a model, mod-
ern daily Hebrew School; young
peoples' groups; Library, Synagogue
study and office. But these "begin-
nings" are but the framework for
the production of informed, open
minded, good hearted American
Jews. Much remains to be reached.
Some Jews still avoid their commun-
al responsibilities. Some Jews let
others carry their burden. They
neglect providing Jewish education,
help and adjustment. A modern
Synagogue offers Jewish culture, a
philosophy of constructive living, a
means for cooperative service. Won't
you join us? During these critical
days every Jew counts. Lend your
helping hand to give our work added
strength and dignity.
THE MEANING OF MARRIAGE
Marriage is something more than
a biological mating; and the family
is much more than a social institu-
tion or a legal entity. Marriage at
its highest, and who would have it
less than this, is a spiritual com-
panionship sanctioned by society and
sanctified by religion. The very
spirit conjures up visions and splen-
dors that come at the call of no other
mystic invocation. It possesses a
magic that invests the man and wo-
man it touches with a garment of
golden light. It is the one miracle
that can turn the poorest heart into
an altar of holy fire and the most
shrunken soul into a sacred shrine.
The mystery of birth; the miracle
of marriage; the awful majesty of
death-these constitute the sacra-
mental trilogy of human life.-From
address by Dr. Sidney E. Goldstein
at Columbia University.
