The Cost of Solomon's Temple. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 18 March 1898
The Cost of Solomon's Temple. f Solomon's Temple, with its interior decor ations and other paraphernalia, was one of the wonders of olden times. According to Villalpandus, the talents of gold, silver, and brass used in its construction were valued at the enormous sum of £6,879,822,000. The worth of the jewels is generally placed at a figure equally as high. The vessels of gold, according to Josephus, were valued at 140,000 talents, which, reduced to English money (as has been shown by Chapel's reduction tables), was equal to £575,296,203. The vessels of silver , according to the same authorities, were still more valuable, being set down as worth £649,344,000 ; priests' vestments and robes of singers, £2,010,000 ; trumpets, £200,000. To the above add the expense of building materials, labour, etc., and we get some wonderful figures. Ten thousand men hewing cedars, 60,000 bearers of burdens, 80,000 hewers of stone, 3,300 overseers — all of whom were employed for seven years, and upon ...
Munificent Donation to Guy's Hospital. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 18 March 1898
Munificent Donation to Guy's Hospital. Mr. Henry L. Raphael has given £20,000 to Guy's Hospital for the establishment and endowment of a ' Henrietta Raphael' Ward, in memory of his late wife. Mr, H. L. Raphael has also contributed £1000 to the funds of the Jewish Board of Guardians. If I were a child again I would look on the cheerful side of everything, for almost every thing has a cheerful side. Life is very much like a mirror ; if you smile upon it, it smiles back on you ; but if you frown and look doubt ful upon it, you will be sure to get a similar look in return. I once heard it said of a grum bling, unthankful person, ' He would have made an uncommonly fine sour apple if he had happened to have been born in that station of life !' Inner sunshine warms not only the heart oi the owner, but all who come in contact with it. Indifference begets indifference. ' Who shuts love, in turn shall be shut out: from love.'

Social Position. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 18 March 1898
Social Position. IPeople who belong to what is called the il best society ' in large towns or cities, are usually quite unconscious of the fact that society is graded just as minutely beneath them as it is in the plane with which they are familiar. But, in fact, every individual in a ?complex society, down to the beggar in the street or the tramp on the highway, has his 'social position.' It is iucleed asserted, and with considerable truth, that mere wealth is a passport to the best society ; but this is less true in America than it is in England, and less true in ? Australia than it is in America. The reason is that in England the best society is a state institution, and therefore is more sure of its position and can afford to be less exclusive — to be more hospitable not only to wealth, but a7so to intellect and originality— than is possible for the corresponding class in a democratic country. Moreover, even from the most aristocratic point of view, a good reason can be given for ...

East End Presentation to Sir George Faudel-Phillips. AN INTERESTING GATHERING. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 18 March 1898
East End Presentation to Sir George Faudel- Phillips. ; AN INTERESTING GATHERING. l Last January at Bonn's Hotel, Great Prescot street London, Sir George Faudel-Phillips, Bart., G.C.I.E. was presented with his portrait in oils, painted by Mr Solomon J. Solomon, A.R.A., as a mark of the appre ciation of East End Jews of his brilliant Mayoralty. The chair was taken by Mr. E. Barnett, C.C. The presentation was made by Sir Thomas J. Lipton. Sir George Faudel-Phillips was accompanied by Lady Phillips and their son, Mr.B. S. Faudel-Phillips. Their arrival at the place of meeting was somewhat delayed owing to an accident to their carriage whilst passing through Lombard-street ; happily no one was hurt. Sir Thomas Lipton, in making the presentation, said '? It is needless for me to say it orives me the greatest possible pleasure to present the portrait to my good Friend, Sir George Faudel-Phillips. As you are all aware, it has been subscribed for by his many friends and admirers in the East...
A Tribute to Lord Rothschild. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 18 March 1898
A Tribute to Lord Rothschild. A new wing of the Jews' Free School,. London, is in course of erection. This has been rendered necessary not so much by the growth of the school in size— for the number of scholars 3500, has now reached its maximum — as by the advancement which has taken place in the principles of education. More ample and up-to-date accommodation is required by the Education Department than the present building affords. The Committee have no alternative but to comply with these require ments, will need to spend about £20,000 on a new wing and drill hall, J t has occurred to a few of the managers to name the new wing after Lord Rothschild, who, as well as otheu members of his family, has been so intimately identified with the fortunes and progress of the school. It is further proposed that the contri butions to this important undertaking shall assume the form of a personal recognition of the pre-eminent services which his Lordship has rendered to our communal institutio...
Sympathy Best of All. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 18 March 1898
Sympathy Best of All. Friendship is one of the prominent features of great fraternities. Upon it the structure is built. It binds men together in communities and states as well. It -is the friendly power that governs. It is the friendly hand that gives and is extended to help the needy ; but ifc is thfi sympathy that accompanies friendship that lifts up the fallen, dries the widow's and the orphan's tears We may give to the needy bread, clothing, shelter, and care, with an icy hand, but it is sympathy that warms the heart, awakens the affections and causes the sorrowing to rejoice. This difference between friendship and sympathy is beautifully illustrated by the following, clipped from a contemporary :— ' A minister had in his congregation a lady who gave large sums away in charity. He was sur prised, however, to find how few people spoke well of her.' He was curious to know the reason and one day, when visiting a widow who he knew had received several handsome gifts from her, he in...
Lessons for Life. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 18 March 1898
Lessons for Life. The schoolroom of life is before you, Let me give you a lesson to heed, N ever forget That the alphabet Must be learned before you can read. If you pass to higher Masses, And skip the ones below, Remember this : You are likely to miss, And down to the foot you'll go. But when you've commenced your lifework. And have found .your proper sphere, Pray do not fret That you do not g^t All the prizes. It would be queer Wren somebody is the highest If somebody was'nt below ; If it b2 you Make no ado, Peg on the best you know. Don't whip yourself for blunders, Nor dream of them at night ; Fr m beginning to end, On youiself depend. But work in the teacher's sight, And if you should be bothered, In thinking what to say, Look over the rule He has givun the school, And write it out that way. If the lessons of life grow harder . As you climb truth's rugged hill, Nevertheless, There'll be a recess. So keep on plodding still. And though your mistakes are many, Don't try to rub the...

The distress the tragedy at Johannesburg has brought upon the Jewish residents of that city, can only be measured by the thought of the consternation such an awful ending to a busy man's life could arouse in our midst. What ever the motive may have been to induce such a murderous act, will be explained in due course, as each day the .cables will throw fresh light upon the deed. Monetary troubles may be ''gauged as the prime cause. Herein is a ...t- O ? .r, ... „ -1.T, lesson'.: Persons m th^ midst or wealth, know more of its emptiness than any Minister who preaches of its worthiness. The victims of ' the greed of wealth ' are the least satisfied with it, and those who inveigh against its im moralities and vices have not half so strong a convection of its rottenness as those y/ho are bound by it. These men know how every care is dragging others in its track, and how weak human strength is under it. No man can count riches' at their true value, as measured by the other world, so truly...
Is Christianity Superior to Judaism. (From his "Some Burning Questions.") [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 18 March 1898
Is Christianity Superior to Judaism. By Rabbi L. Weiss. (From his ' Some ?Burning Questions.') ? There is not a people or denomination living whose religion is founded on principles more sublime than Israel's. When all people on earth worshipped idols, some of the most frivolous character, the Lord's Dehest ?dispelled the darkness of Israel through the knowledge of the one and true God before whom the poorest beg gar and the richest master can kneel alike, and whose supremacy was proclaimed to last from eternity to ever ,lp«?finp- and extend to ah the ends of the earth. How religion since then kept pace with the changes and multations of time, now progressing and now retrogressing, does not belong here to relate, but it is meet to say that Christianity, springing from the bosom of Judaism, governed by some of its laws and guided by some of its ethics, has berome a powerful religion, and to those who had no divine religion previously, it has become a sublime creed. Yet, when we Jews ...
Zionist Congress. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 18 March 1898
Zionist Congress. ?In one respect the Zionist Congress will stand as a landmark in the history of the Jews of Europe. Ifc has called forth, in the English, and Continental Press, fuller and more sym pathetic comment on the position of the Jews of Eurone than anv event in onr histnvv. It Je* true that the writers of some of the articles on the Congress betray a curious ignorance of our racial psychology, and apparently regard the Jew as a Quixotic being who is ready to give up in a moment the position that has been won for him by the efforts of many gener ations. But this error has not lessened the sympathy with which they have approached, the questions suggested b}' the Congress.
Barmitzvah. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 18 March 1898
Barmitzvah. In the ' Answered ' column of Young Israel a reply tends to confirm a mistake, the dis cussion of which will be of interest to many readers. The reply runs: ' A lad must be thirteen years and one day o'd to be Barmitzvah. If he is exactly thirteen years old on p^ p ^ he is Barmitzvah on D^IOSW' Now the Talmud, it is true, uses the above expression to define' the age of religious responsibility of a lad, but in several instances where a term is defined as a certain amount of years and a day, that is intended to imply that the years must be completed to the last minute, and the change takes place with the actual beginning of the fol'owiog day. The words quoted from the Talmud mean, therefore, that a lad becomes Barmitzvah, when, after completing the last day of his thirteenth year, he has, with night fall, entered upon the first day of his four teenth year, and, accordingly, if that first day of his fourteenth year, i.e., the thirteenth anni versary of his birthday is a Sa...
In the Image of God. [?] [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 18 March 1898
In the Image of God. MTIN *TD VVlbX Dbm ' In the image of God has he created men ' is the keynote of the whole Bible, is the foundation stone of the Jewish religion, i? the message of salvation and redemption whioh Israel was commissioned to bear to the nations. They stamp the impress of Divine origin upon man's brow, they establish man's sonhood of the Divine Creator and assure him of spiritual immortality. Of course they refer singly and solely to man's spiritual nature, his soul-life, his mental qualification. And in reality, with the divine germ embodied in man from the very beginning:, we see him gradually unfold those wonderful endowments which enable him, who bodily is chained to dust, reach mentally into cosmic regions that are inaccesible to his Lodily vision and in realms that are beyond his bodily reach. Man has become a creator in turn ; of course but a weak shadow of the Divine prototype, but nevertheless a reflex of infinite magnitude and possibility. Man not only give...
Civil and Religious Equality. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 18 March 1898
Civil and Religious Equality. £ Bro. Hon. G. W. Ross, M. P. P., in his excellent address delivered before the assembled thousands gathered together in Toronto, Canada spoke thus : ' We again proclaim the civil and religious equality of the whole race. Ten millions of people looked upon the strange inscription over the peristyle at the entrance of the great Chicago Exposition, and what was that inscription ? It was these words : ' Eeligious toleration the best fruits of the last four centuries.' Every Mason says amen to that inscription. 'Religious toleration the best fruits of her Majesty's reign.' Quakers had no right to sit in parliament just a few years before Queen Victoria ascended the throne. There were then Jewish disabilities that have been removed. Privileges have teen given and .in every part of the realm where there was intolerance there is now peace, and we can now say that every man can sit under his own vine and fig tree ; no one can dare to make him afraid. It was bea...

Why do we study History ? [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 18 March 1898
Why do we study History ? All history, indeed, should be an inspiring and! fascinating theme to every thinking man and woman.. It has been truly said that ' history makes some amends, for the shortness of Life.' How can we, within the limited span of our existence, gain sufficient experience: to quite ourselves worthily amid every trial and in every difficulty ? We turn to history, and in ' Her ample page, Rich with the spoils of time,' we read of the successes and failures both of nations and of individuals. We see monuments of glory and beacons of danger set along the shores of the past to direct us through the trackless ocean of the future. Happy, thrice happy, he who has ears to hear the voices of the dead, to which these around him remain deaf;, who has eyes to see the visions of ancient times which to others are dim and dark. Thus does the young man become like unto him who is three score and ten years old, without either wrinkles or grey hairs. Thus he is endowed with the mel...
