Sedra Nr)' Genesis, Chop. 18 to 22. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 1 November 1895
( ? ? Sedra x^} Genesis, Chop. 18 to 22. Abraham was sitting one day at his tent door, in the hot part of the day. He looked up and saw three men approaching him. He ran out to meet them, and bowed before thorn, for so they used to welcome s* rangers in that land. Abraham asked them to rest in the shade, and . to let some water be brought to wa6h their feet. In those days people did not wear shoes ; they went barefooted or wore tandals, which were like the soles of our shoes, and were tied on with strings. They kept the feet from being hart by sharp stones, but did not keep off the dust snd dirt as shoes do. Therefore it was nleasant for a person, after he had been walking on a warm day, to slip off his sandals and wash his feet in cool water. He asked them to have some food also and they consented. And when the food was prepared he set it before them and they ate, and Abraham waited upon them. Now, these men were angels, that is messen gers of God ; and they had come to tell Abra h...

[By the "Little Bird."] [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 1 November 1895
[By the «' Little Bird.'] I saw the succah at the Montefoire Home. It was indeed a work of art. The many different flowers made from crinkled and tissue papsr were perfect, and the butterflies (made from the same material) looked as if real and were flying from fruit to flowers. A pretty lyre with strings of gold wire entwined ; and with ivy and rosebuds m tiny pots standing at each side formed a very graceful and pretty decoration. The lake in the. centre of the table was indeed a novel adornment, water-lilies sur rounded by a bank of moss looked as if really growing. The decoration of the succah was entrusted to Mrs. Barnett, the matron of the Montefoire Home, who was kindly assisted by many young ladies. Several others were good enough to furnish cakes, fruit and confectionery which was much appreciated by the visitors. * * * I should say that about 600 visited the suc cah and partook of the good things provided by the ladies. That which was left was handed over to many poor fami...

JEPHTHA'S VOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 1 November 1895
JEPHTHA'S VOW. There are some things in the ordinary view of Jephtha's vow, and the fulfilment of the same as recorded in the 11th chapte - of Judges* as to cause one to wonder that one of God's Judges should be possessed of such a spirit as to lead him to mak) a human sacrifice ; and es pecially that the sacrifice should be his own daughter. VVhil'i it is true that Jephtba lived in an age when human sacrifices were common, and his people were surrounded by nations who practiced human sacrifice, yet with all the light before him we think a satisfactory solution of this question is expressed in the recent view that. Jephtha dedicated his daughter to a life of - chastity and service to the Lord, by confining her in an institution similar to our modern con vents. Let us look at the fac's. Jephtha had the example of Abraham before him as recorded in Gen. 22, wherein God plainly indicated his dis approval of human saeiitio1. Again he had the express command of God, ' TIidu shalt not kill...
TOLERATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 1 November 1895
v: TOLERATION. ; ;?' The sympathetic bond which is gener . ated amongst the followers of a particular \ 'worship, often becomes a motive of exclusion, hatred, and war, between those of other religious denominations. Nothipg is; more irreligious than such ? 'odious sentiments, which, under the. ? pretext of religion, separate numan . .. beings who ought to love and assist each other- ?' .'.; ' ' What ! ??, because accident may have given birth' to two children, in two different families, the . one to be circum cised, the other baptised ; can there be no true friendship between them ? How ever nourished with the milk of the same nurse, participating in the infantine games, having the same tutors, pursuing with an equal success the same career, living the same life, and walking towards the same- grave mutually supporting each other — and shall it be said, true friend ship cannot possibly exist between these two beings, because the one, forsooth, is baptised, and the other is not?

BRIEF INTERVIEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 1 November 1895
BRIEF XNTHStVIBWS. The Rev. J. H. Landau, whom. we had the privilege of interviewing^ re cently courteously enunciated his views upon many subjects of importance to ? Jewish communities. Referring to the growing indifference to their religious obligations manifested on the part of the young, he said, ' That the age of in * differentism usually covt-red the period ?of youth.' Religion always exercised a restrictive influence, since, its most ?/important principles were introduced by the words 'Thou Shalt,' and 'Thou Shalt Not,' and youth was I* ast inclined to be bound and coerced by restrictions. But, as the youth grows into manhood .and experience comes his life is swayed by a steadier current of thought and : action. Speaking of the history of the Jewish ; people, the Rev. gentleman said, 'That -the existence of the Jew was the standing niarvel of the world. All other nations that had been subjected to only a tithe -of the persecution meted out to the Jew had long since perished. ...

Death of Mr. E. Cohen. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 6 December 1895
Death of Mr E. Cohen * Thb news of the death of Mr. Emanual - Cohen, whice took place at his residence, Gover ^ street, North Adelaide, will be received with, regret by not a small section of the community. The deceased gentleman was well and widely .known, and was greatly ?steemed not only socially but by all who had business transactions with him. The late Mr. Cohen left London in '« the Bast-Indiaman Coromandel for Melbourne. on April 26, 1852, reaching the sister colony in August of the same year. Towards the end of ihe same month he came' on to Adelaide. The break out of the Victorian diggings attraoted Mr. Cohen as it did many others at that juncture, ♦ and being ayouth 17 years of age fresh from London he left for the capital of the sister colony and then made for Forest Creek. Gold digging did not prove successful as he could have wished, and he took a position in charge of * 'stores at Forest Creek, Bunkers Creek, Loddon, Bendigo, Maryborough, Avoca, and Tarrangower, . He w...

The Thirlmeri . Home a&& Fresh Air League Fair. ' A thing- of beauty is a joy,' — until it grows too old. The Exhibition Building in Prince Alfred Park is a ' thing of beauty 'while the present charming decorations are allowed to staud, and as we know no more deserving non-sectarian institutions than the Thirlmere Home and Fresh Air League, we can only hope that those who have not yet visited the grand Fait now being held will do so prior to its close to-morrow (Saturday) evening. No one who has a few shillings to spare can expend the money to better purpose than helping the work which we now notice. It is pleasing that so many well-known Jewesses are taking active part in the work. Mrs. George J. Cohen, with Mrs. Edward Harvey, Mts. B. D. Cohen, Mrs. F. Aaronson and other energetic friends have an elegant electric -lit stall, which alone is worth a visit. This is named ' La Bonbonniere,' where sweet things may be had for mere trifles.
