Page 3 [Newspaper Page] — The Jewish South — 1 December 1893

ease and comfort, and well-bred, winsome children, and scores of friends, and homes that are sacred, even to the angel of death ? These are the victors in life and we deem them happy. Look now to the other picture. Are there not some men, who seem never to be able to gain anything, who never begin a thing, but it ends disastrously, who never struggle but what they are defeated, who are mayhap, even more conscientious, more honorable, more observant and more attentive to their duties than their victorious brothers, Yet, not the dove of peaceful conquest, but the ominous buzzard of defeat whirls and circles above their heads, watching and waiting for the carrion of their balked plans, and swooping down ever and anon to feast upon the carcass of their dead hopes. To them pain is a constant companion, the hunger of despair gnaws at their heart, sickness and death invade their homes, they bite their lip in the anguish of impotence to see their children feel the numb pain of their father'...

THE JEWISH SOUTH. A JOURNAL DEVOTED TO THE INTERESTS OF JUDAISM. PUBLISHED WEEKLY. HERBERT I. EZEKIEL, Editor and Prop, 722 EAST MAIN STREET. Subscription, One Dollar per annum. Single Copy, Five Cents. Advertising Rate, 50 cents per inch. Entered at the Post Office. Richmond, Va., an second class mail matter. It is a pleasing incident, that annually occurs on Thanksgiving day, that of the union services which take place in the various cities. The unions are not alone of the various bodies of one denomination, but often of varying denominations. We notice that in a number of cities, Jewish congregations join with other congregations to hold union Thanksgiving services, and Rabbis and Christian pastors, speak from the same platform. It is a healthy sign of good will and a mutual desire to come more closely together. No one need sacrifice a tittle of his convictions. Gratitude is broader than only creed, and it is wise to make apparent occasionally, that there is a common ground on wh...

WE ARE GRATEFUL. [Continued from page 1.] Nations nominally Christian have cruelly persecuted the Jews in many ages and many countries. I wish to say that it was a false Christianity, a Christianity that contradicted the teachings of him whose name it bore. This perverted Christianity persecuted not only the Jews, but other Christians who would not subscribe to the peculiar tenets of those in power. There is none of this nor anything to justify it in the gospel of Christ. The Christianity which I preach and believe is one of universal love and charity. My own denomination has been persecuted as cruelly by those who persecuted the Jews, as the Jews have been themselves. The days of religious tyranny have passed away forever in this country. The time was in America when a man was fined for not attending an established church, and imprisoned for preaching except within the ministry of state religion. We often wonder that it ever could have been so, but let us remember that this is stil...

Union Thanksgiving services were held at the magnificent new synagogue of Congregation "Oheb Shalom." Rabbi A. Guttmacher, rabbi of the Baltimore Hebrew Congregation, was the orator of the day. The services were participated in by Rabbis Rosenau, Schonfarber, Szold, Kaiser, Willner, and Marmor. A very large congregation was present WOODVILLE, miss. The Methodist and Jewish congregation had a union service on Thanksgiving Day. Both the pastors, Rev. R W. Bailey and Rabbi Marx Moses, officiated. CLEVELAND, OHIO. The Union services of Jewish congregations, which were held Thanksgiving morning at Scovill Avenue Temple, Rev. Dr. M.

THE PATHOS OF PASSING AWAY. A SERMON BY RABBI EDWARD N. CALISCH And Moses commanded, saying: "At the end of seven years, on the Succoth festival of the Sabbatical year, when all Israel come together to appear In the presence of the Eternal, their God, at the place which He will choose, thon shalt read this law to all Israel assembled: thon shalt gather the men and women and children and the stranger within the gates, in order that they may hear and learn, and venerate the Eternal, your God, and observe all the words of this law. (Deuteronomy xxxi-11-12). It is a coincidence that this passage relative to the Succoth festival and the reading of the law thereon should have been in the Scriptural portion of this week. On one of the days of this week was the national holiday of thanksgiving celebrated, and it has been shown that the idea of a national day of thanksgiving sprang from the Jews, and from this very Succoth festival, here spoken of. Yet this very coincidence and the train of ...

The Hebrew Prophets. Fklix Klein in the Pabis Corretponiant. Much mental confusion exists among readers and even earnest students of the Scriptures by reason of a misleading and imperfect idea of the Prophets of the Hebrews. The sole or principal business of these Prophets, it is generally thought, was to foretell future events. Such a notion belittles the Prophets, since it places them only a little above vulgar fortunetellers, and those who predict what is to take place hereafter. A lncid correction of anch a misconception, as well as a forcible exposition of the importance of the correction, are put forth by His Eminence, Cardinal Meignan, Archbiaphop of Tours, in a recent publication, and I give here summary of his views. The name of Prophet, which was introduced into the Bible by its Greek translators, does not signify only one who predict*, but also, i nd, perhaps, principally, one who speaka in place of another. The business of a Prophet, while it included an announcement of ...

This does not tpeak well for the Review. There was no " behest of the grand old national holiday, Thanksgiving day," to a Jewish newspaper, to desecrate the Jewish Sabbath.

The First Verse of the Bible. [Translated from the German of Dr. Liebm an Aoler by Rabbi Eowaeo N. Calisch.] The heathens cannot accept the first verse of the Bible, because in their conception the gods were created "in the beginning." The " Thorahs " (scriptures) of the heathen world do not begin with a cosmogony, an account of the world's creation", but with a theogony, t. a teachings concerning the creations of the gods ; detailing how one god is born to the other. K"iD " He created." Even this phrase is beyond the heathen. He would have said, " they created." The hesthen could not even have understood " they created," for to create means to make something out of nothing. This power the heathen did not give to his gods. He could only conceive them as giving form and shape to eternally existent matter. We have reformed our prayer-book by putting the abstract conception of " salvation " in place of the material one of " saviour." The change of " they " created to "He " created was ...

Gifts. "Oh, World-God, give me Wealth!" the Egyptian cried. His prayer was granted. High as heaven, behold Palace and pyramid ; the brimming tide Of lavish Nile washed all his land with gold. Armies of slaves toiled ant-wise at his feet, World-circling traffic roared through mart and street. His priests were gods, his spice-balmed kings enshrined, Set death at naught in rock-ribbed enamels deep. Seek Pharaoh's race to-day and ye shall find Rust and the moth, silence and dusty sleep. " Oh, World-God, give me Beauty !" cried the Greek. His prayer was granted. All the earth became Plastic and vocal to his sense; each peak, j Each grove, each stream, quick with Prome- ' tbean flame, Peopled the world with imaged grace and light The lyre was his, and his the breathing might Of the immortal marble, his the play Of diamond-pointed thought and golden tongue.

The Book of Job. By Gbobg Brandes. Jewish philosophy owes much to the influence of other tribes with whom the Jews came in contact. Beni Kedem, for instance, the " Sons of the East" later called the Saracens, are seen in the Book of Job. They were Edomites. Those that lived in and about Theman were famous for their wise men and they are often spoken of in the Bible. The actors in the Book of Job are not Jews, and the scene of the drama is not in Palestine. The book contains no reference to Mosaic Law. There is not even a reference to Jewish cult us or to an y Jewish custom. Jahve's name does not occur in the dialogue, but only in the frame of the narrative, and that is not as old as the dialogue. In the conversations, God is called Eloah, El Shaddai, old names in nee long before the Jews got a special name for God, Jahve, a name as limited as that of Ramos, the god of the Moabites, and Dagon, that of the Philistines. Yet, though the book is not Israelitic, it was probably written in...

A CHANNUKAH MORAL. I A SERMON BY RABBI EDWARD N. CALISCH Now when the time drew near that Matathias should die, he said unto his sons, "Now hath pride and rebuke gotten strength, and the time of destruction, and the wrath of indignation; Now therefore, my sons, be ye zealous for the law, and give your lives for the covenant of your fathers. Call to remembrance what acts our fathers did in their time, so shall ye receive great honor and an everlasting name. (I Maccabees H. 49-51.) The book of the Maccabees, from which we quote our text this morning, is not in the canon of the Scriptures. It is a part of the ApocryphaIt would doubtleas have been a part of the Scriptures, had not the canon of the Scriptures been closed before it came into existence. From it however we glean a fair and reasonable story of the troublous times that led to the Maccabean revolt, of the progress of the war, the triumph of Judas and the cleansing and rededication of the temple. It is a story of courage and he...

HEBREW TYPES OF TUNIS. Jewish Household Life in this North African City. A short stay at Tunis on the route from Cario to Algiers will be sufficient for the traveler and yet repay him for the halt although the ancient Moorish city has not retained its most striking Mussulman characteristics and ia fast becoming European under the new regime. It It ia more than half Jewish already, and it is difficult to credit the statistical statement that the Jewish element is really only in the proportion of one to five of the population. But this unit is the only active, energetic, business like and "goahead " portion of the native community, and so completely pravades it that it creates the impression of being the majority. From the low, narrow and squalorstricken parts of Tunis, where the Jews wore formerely only found, they have migrated into the quarters occupied by the French contingent and some of them occupy the finest houses and buildings. Many have retained their national costumes and a...
