A NEW AID SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 13 August 1897
A NEW AID SOCIETY. On Sunday last about 25 gentlemen met at Mr. J. L. : T)olowitch's, 683 George-street, Sydney, to consider ?some means of assisting the deserving poor. Mr. ' Dolowitch was voted to the chair. On opening the ? meeting, the chairman explained a scheme for the i assistance of the needy poor by small loans up to £1. ? This amount to be obtainable daily on personal appli cation, and repayable by instalments covering six months. For instance, a poor person, requires imme diate assistance, and on application to a member of the committee arrangements are quickly completed and ?the amount is handed over the same day. This enables a purchase being made of a basket of fruit or other rsaleable conmodity, thus giving an opportunity to the person assisted of earning a living. The re- payments covering such a great length of time, and being so small, places the assistance on a good basis. After being freely discussed, Mr. M. B. Michaelson proposed :and Mr. N. Jacobs seconded, ' T...
Musical Echoes. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 13 August 1897
(WUmcaf -£c0oe0» Paris the beautiful is just now Paris the musical, , being wholly given over to the divine art, concerts and i receptions, at which music holds high sway being quite the order of the day. Artists having or fancying they have a claim to distinction, and others who have no such claim, give any amount of concerts, good, bad, or indifferent, as the case1 may be, for which one is pestered to take tickets. Great ladies do pretty much the same by holding afternoon and evening receptions, with this difference, that invitations to these festive gatherings cost nothing. Lovers of high-class music rendered by great artists are reminded that Mark Hambourg, one of the greatest pianists of the day, and Jakoff Hambourg, a wonder ful violinist, will give a recital on Saturday. 14th inst., at the Town Hall. In Melbourne they have been de lighting large audiences by their marvellous playing, : in fact created a furore. Their duos for violin and piano of the Great Master impressed the...

SUPERSTITION AMONG THE JEWS IN BAGDAD. (CONTINUED FROM LAST ISSUE.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 20 August 1897
SUPERSTITION AMONG THE JEWS IN BAGDAD. (CONTINUED FRO I LA&.T ISSUE.) . No amount of argnmenbiyill convince Jewish women here that there is really no harm in appearing before male strangers, and that it is perfectly ridiculous for them to run away and bide themselves as if in shame when gentlemen come into the house to sp« ak to their husbands or fathers. Yet it is not to be wondered at, seemj that they have been bred in such ide,as, and have had the example set before them by their mothers and female relatives. A few details concerning the ideas and usages of Jewish women in Bagdad may serve as an illustration of their intellectual condition, and the enormous difficulties to be overcome in bringing about changes tmding to improve their condition. By far the greater number of superstitious beliefs, and the practices .emanating therefrom, are connected with the influence of the evil eye, and the various measures taken to avoid or counteract its influence Sterrility is another...
SYDNEY JEWISH SABBATH SCHOOL. ANNNAL MEETING AT THE ODDFELLOWS TEMPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 20 August 1897
SYDNEY JEWISH SABBATH SCHOOL. ANNNAL MEETING AT THE ODDFELLOWS1 TEMPLE. The Annual Meeting of the Sydney Jewish Sabbath School took place on Sunday last, at 10 30 a.m. The Rev. A. B Davis presided, and, in his opening remarks, welcomed the ladies and gentlemen who were present at the gathering, but regretted the paucity of the adult attendance, pointing out that the matter should really have better consideration. Con tinuing, the rev. gentleman said : The event of the day was certainly the bestowal of the Rothschild prizes, and he hoped that the reci pients would value them as highly as others had done in years gone by. Only last Sunday he was at the bedside of a Jady dying, and she told him, with evident pleasure and satisfaction, that she was the first to receive the Rothschild prize ; and afterwards, when shown the books, he V/as told she had always prized the books and considered them one of her supports through life. About thirty-five years ago Mr Lewis Phillips and he had give...

MOTHERS OF GREAT MEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 20 August 1897
MOTHEKS OF GREAT MEN. One of the chief glories of the Bible is its recognition of the dignity, rights and usefulness of women. Where in any other body of liter ature will you find so pure a respect and love for wife, so devoted and self-sacrificing an affection for sister and daughter, so. noble a reverence for mother ? The world generally in its laws, literatures and customs does not treat woman in any of her relations with the sweet, divine justice which the good book inculcates. Travel where you may, you find very few monuments reared to celebrate the genius, virtues, and self-sacrifices of woman hood. No holidays are legalized in honor of great women. Even the Queen's birthday is not so much a day of honor of Victoria as of the Queen. On that day the English people cele brate the dignity of an office, not the greatness and virtues of a woman, though she be the most queenly woman and the most womanly queen in the history of sovereignty. Too many women care more about an illustrio...

. Just at the beginning, when starting on our journey to the journalistic haven, we felt that in representing the light and leading of Aus tralian Judaism, we had encumbered ourselves with a task too difficult to bear. At this time the obstacles to our progress loomed like steep and dangerous ascents before a belated pilgrim, and deep and awful pitfalls suddenly caused us to fill with fear, and our hope for that assist ance expected to be near at hand was shattered ; or even the encouragement which meant a ray of light en our difficult path was withheld ; when our firmest support was suddenly and rudely taken away, and ruin and destruction prophesied for us in all sincerity, and with kind sympathy by the well meaning; when courage began to fail, and only the faintest glimmer of hope was left — we realised what is meant by a friend, and agree with the definition — r« One who comes in when the world goes out.' We placed our longing before and our trust in the Great Ordainer of all thi...

HOSPITAL ENDOWMMENT FUND MR. ABRAHAM COHEN'S £50. Mr. Sol. Joseph, editor, forwards the Tam worth Newst from which we extract : — It will be well within the recollection of our readers that at the time when it was decided', to endeavor to inaugurate an endowment fund, for the hospital as Tainworth's permanent me morial of the Queen's Eecord Reign, Mr.. Abraham Oohp.n forwarded to the RGr-rAi-,n,ries a. . cheque for £20, with a promise to give an ad ditional £30, provided that a sum of £250 was. raised by means of individual contributions by the 31st July. It is now a well-known fact, that the stipulated sum was realised by the date mentioned, and this week the honorary secretaries advised Mr Cohen of the fact. By return mail that gentleman forwarded his. cheque of £30, enclosed in the following com munication : — Sydney, August 10, 1897. Messrs. Laverty and Murray, Tarn worth. Dear Sirs, — I enclose my cheque, value .£30, say thirty pounds, as per my promise, for the Tamworth . Hosp...
To the Editor of the Hebrew Standard. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 20 August 1897
To the Editor of the Sehrew Standard. Sir, — I am in receipt of a circular from the Synagogue calling attention to certain altera tions in the Laws. Being unable to attend I wish to point out through your valuable medium, that some provision should be made for a change in the entire adminstration by adding to the proposed new Law that two members of committee at least retire each year. This would inject a certain amount of new blood into the communal surroundings and cause many of the worthy gentlemen who do not at present appear to take much interest to be aroused. At the same time I would like to see a young man who could voice the require ments and the ideas of the much heard of young men, in the management. Any matters on which only married gentlemen should ad judicate he would have — should such contin gency really arise — sense enough to leave to them. My card herewith. Yours respectfully, ADOLPH.
OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 20 August 1897
OUR MELBOURNE LETTER Melbourne is very quiet just now, and there fore there is little news this week. In his lecture in the Melbourne Town-hall on 'Hebrew Contributions to the Social ques tion' the Rev. Dr. Abrahams affirmed that the basis of a prosperous society must always be religion ; by which is not meant allegiance to any particular creed, or the acceptance or any set of dogmas, but the acknowledgement in word and deed of the two great doctrines of the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. The annual report of the Hebrew Ladies' Benevolent Society in Melbourne shows an in crease of -£93 in the receipts from all sources. Two hundred and forty- three cases were relei ved during the year. The engagement is announced of Miss Flor ence Gross, daughter of Mrs. Gross 'Beverley' Crimea st. St. Kilda, to Mr. Leslie Harris, eldest son of Mr. 'Wbolf Harris of London. A very enjoyable 'smoke night' wa* given by the Yictorian Artists Society, at their gall eries in East Melbourne, ...
ALDERMAN I. REGINALD COHEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 20 August 1897
ALDERMAN I. REGINALD COHEN. The subject of our sketch was born in Syd ney in 1855, but began his schooling in Eng land, and completed his education at Sydney ?Grammar School, obtaining marked distinction. Early he evidenced a proclivity for literature, and at the age of 11 wrote an article on ' Crit I icism' for a Journal called 'The Aganippe.' I At the age of 17 he launched on the path of [ fiction, and in 1872 published his first work, L ? Stanhope,' which received considerable notice. I In 1874, Mr. Cohen went to Levuka, Fiji, and I . became an active worker in local matters, as § well as a contributor to the Fiji Times. Indeed, I a very trenchant article from his pen on the I then Government, of which the late Sir John I 'Thurston was a prominent member, provoked I much comment. He occupied various positions I amongst the local institutions, and was a I leading member of the School of Arts. On I leaving Fiji he was presented by the leading I residents with an illuminated address...
Around The World. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 20 August 1897
$rotmfc t$t Ifioxtb. [From our Exchanges..] An instance of the watchfulness of Provi dence is the case of Radetzky, a Jew, ?.vho was tried for murder about the year I860. Eadetz ky was a pedler, and ignorant of the English language He not only protested his innocence but claimed he had never soen the man with whose murder he was charged. He was, nevertheless, convicted and sentenced to be executed upon a particular Friday, which hap pened to be Erev Yom Kippur. The latter circumstance caused a number of influential Jews to petition Governor Morgan to delay the execution to a subsequent date— a petition that was granted, and Radetzky was reprieved from time to time. The Legislature subsequently passed an Act providing that persons under sentence of death should be confined at hard labor for one year prior to execution, and Ka cUtzky's life was thus again spaaed. When John T. Hoffman became Governor, he inves tigated Radetzky's case, and he found that the man was absolutely innocent, ...

WEST AUSTRALIAN LETTER , . ? w ? Perth, August 5, 1897. The President of our congregation, Mr. N. Harris, banded me your communication of the 29th June, and asked me to express for him his gratification on hearing that you have started a Jewish newspaper, as it will supply a want felt since the demise of ihe Australian Hebrew. We oner you our congrat ? laiions, and earnestly hope your new publication will be successful. As the majority of our co-religionists have left their ; friends and relatives in the other colonies, many of your readers no doubt will be pleased to hear that our little community is progressing.
