Jewin Street—The Jew's Garden. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 14 January 1898
Jewin Street— The Jew's Garden. So great a conflagration as that which occurred recently could hardly have left Jewish firms entirely unaffected, although Jewin Crescent and Jewin Street have lost the official connection with Jews which gave them their name hundred of years ago from Jewin Garden, London. Jewin Street, like Old Jewry, as its name indicates, is one of the very few existing monuments of the places set aside for Jews in London in the Middle Ages. Jewin Street, or Jewyn Street, was originally called the Jews' Garden, in other words, the Jews' burial ground, till the final expulsion in 1 290, in the reign of Edward I. A tradition existed among the citizens of London that the Jews buried a great deal of their treasure in the Jews1 Garden, as they were hopeful of a speedy return to the land where they had suffered so much and where they had prospered. The superstition had not much foundation. The death is announced of Mr. Joseph Abrahams on 8th January at 152 Faraday-st., C...
The Dreyfus Mystery. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 14 January 1898
The Dreyfus Mystery. The case of Captain Dreyfus — about which there was a certain air of mystery when the unhappy French officer was charged with treachery, and sentenced to transportation for life — is not at all unlikely to be reopened, and it may be that the Captain who has suffered severely up to now may be proved innocent of the charges made against him. In the latter part of 1894, Captain Dreyfus, an officer in the £ rencn army, was sent to penal servitude for life on the ground that he had divulged impor tant secrets to a Foreign State. It so happened than an anti-Semitic wave was over the land at the time, and, as Dreyfus was a Jew, he was practically condemned before his trial. He was tried by a secret tribunal, and nothing has been allowed to leak out as to the evidence upon which he was convicted. M. Schenrer Kestner now seeks to reopen the case on the ground that he can fully establish the inno cence of Dreyfus. He implicates one of the Princes of the House of Esterhazy...
Better than Silver and Gold. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 14 January 1898
Better than Silver and Gold. Money is only valuable as a means to an end, and if the end can be attained without the means, the means are of comparative little importance. Silver and Gold are worth what they can purchase, and are therefore in ferior to the things which they cannot purchase. Money cannot purchase health ad strength of body or peace of mind, or happiness. Great sums of money cannot purchase the pardon of sin, or exemption from its pains and penalties, either here or hereafter. Heaps of silver and gold cannot bribe the destroyer Death, or delay his coming for a single moment. Let us learn that wealth is an object to be sought, not for it own sake, but only a means of blessing others, and that there are many things far more valuable than silver or gold. Not unfrequently people, with generous hearts and benevolent impulses, are led to think that because they have but little or no money to gi,ve to help others, they are consequently debarred the privilege and pleasure of ...
Barney Barnato. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 14 January 1898
Barney Barnato. Mr. Harry Raymond's promised memoir of B. I. Barnato lias now been issued by Isbester & Co., with many portraits and illustrations. ' If I outlive you,' said Raymond to his hero, after interviewing him for a South African journal three years ago, ' I will write honestly what I know and think.' The main features of his life have so recently been sketched, that it will be best here to extract a few characteristic anecdotes. Barnett, second son of Isaac Isaacs, general dealer, Of 102, Tenter street, in Aldgate, by Leah, his wife, left +--p Fi-p* So.hool at 14. and had saved £100 bv the asre of 20, when he joined his elder brother, Harry Barnato, in the Diamond fields. At Kimberley he met Louis Cohen, who has contributed some interesting reminis cences to the volume. They took an office together for a guinea a day. Cohen recoiled at the price, but Bar nett convincingly asked : ' Why not pay a guinea a -day if you can make thirty shillings ?' They had a blanket ea...

To the Editor of the "Hebrew Standard." [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 14 January 1898
To the Editor of the ' Hebrew Standard.' Sir, — Will you allow space in your valuable columns to comment upon the way the service is carried on at the Great Synagogue. We are earnestly striving to make Judaism shine forth amongst other creeds, and you also are trying to encourage young men to attend prayers at the Synagogue to instruct them in the love and fear of the God of Israel. Being unfortunate in having to reside in the country, and only when special opportunity affords to visit Sydney, a greater pleasure is added by going to shool and offering prayers for the gifts we have received. Being a mourner for a parent, X dUl-uiuiiigijr oeuu x\au uian wiicii luc nine amvcu, aim just when three parts through it, was interrupted by the minister going on with the services. This happened twice, and although I said it as quick as I could say it with devotion, and consequently argued the matter, that it was no use going to shool to say prayers, as it was like a mockery to gabble on as we ...

The Zionist Movement in America. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 21 January 1898
The Zionist Movement in America. We note the astounding progress which Zionism is making in the United States. At a meeting a few weeks ago of a society called Ohale Bhem, at which all the proceedings are carried on in pure Hebrew* it would have wakened up even the greatest anti Zionist to hear the ancient language revived and used ?nrifh i.Via -nArfpp.t, flnp.nn.v nf a, modern tongue. It was a revelation ; and at the same time a sign of how the means are being silently but surely prepared for the realisation of the great hopes expressed abBas^e. There are at present twelve or thirteen Zion societies in New York and Brooklyn. Two new ones have been founded within the last month among the richer Jews—one on the east side and one on the west side of the town. The time has come; to provide some central body which shall represent the Zionists as a whole. A meeting of delegates from all the societies was held re cantly, and it was shown that the various societies have a combined membersh...
Education of the Sydney Jewish Youth. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 21 January 1898
Education of the Sydney Jewish Youth. In a recent issue we gave the .report of the animal meeting of the Sydney Jewish Educa tion Board.' The report of the Committee showed that there were 362 children receiving instruction, but that the efforts of the Board were considerably curtailed through want of funds. The subjects of instruction embraced Hebrew Grammar and Translation, Scripture and- Post-Biblical History, and the principles of the Jewish religion. For these advantages ? and all the subjects taught are absolutely essential for Jewish children — the small charge of threepence per week is asked from each child. rlhis is such a small sum that there ought to be hardly any . parents unable ov unwilling to pay it, and we trust that in future little trouble, will be found in collecting it. The classes resume their work on the 23rd instant. They, are held, on Sunday mornings ' and weekday afternoons, at the Synagogue schoolrooms, and on the mornings of the week days at the Public Sch...
