are objects of derision to those, who have no principles, moral or religious, to guide their conduct. How then can a Jew but be a Republican? in America particularly. Unfeeling and ungrateful would he be if he were callous to the glorious and benevolent cause of the difference between his situation in this land of freedom and among the proud and privileged law-givers of Europe. But I am poor; I am so, my family also is large, but soberly and decently brought up. They have not been taught to revile a christian because his religion is not so old as theirs. They have not been taught to mock even at the errors of good intention, and conscientious belief. I trust they will always leave this to men as unlike themselves, as I hope I am to yourscurrilouscorrespondent. I know that to purse-proud aristocracy poverty is a crime, but it may sometimes be accompanied with honest}' even in a Jew: I was bankrupt some years ago; I obtained my certificate and was discharged from my debts. Having been...

A JOURNAL DEVOTED TO THE INTERESTS OF JUDAISM. HERBERT T. EZEKIEL, Editor and Prop, Subscripction, One Dollar per annum. Advertising Rate, 50 cents per inch. Entered at the Post Office. Richmond, Va., as second class mail matter. The Feast of Booths. Our life is made up of contrasts, and finds true expression in the coming of the joyous "Succoth'' feast, close upon the heels of the solemn Atonement Day. This close connection of the sad and the merry is further, the emphatic teaching of Judaism that life is happiness and joy, that religion, as man's holiest and most precious treasure, is a filing of joy and gladness, as well of earnest and serious nature. There is no sin in a smile, nor any trespass in the beaming of a happy face, if these things come from honest hearts and honest motives. The "Succoth" festival does not appeal to us, as perhaps it did to our fathers, in the happy days of their natural life. For there is to us no ingathering of the crops, no harvest direct from the f...

A Peculiar Disease. Tarantism was a peculiar disease which prevailed in Italy during the middle ages. It resulted from the bite of the tarantula, and was characterized by gesticulations, contortions, and cries somewhat resembling those arising from St. Vitus Dance. The sufferer from tarantism assumed graceful postures, was partial to red colors, bright and luminous surfaces, and music; their recovery, in fact, being effected by the use of instrumental or vocal music. Although various treatments were used, one being to bury the patient up to the neck in the earth, the employment of music was so universally successful that a class of tunes and songs was composed, called Tarentella, to be used for Tarantati. The Tarantella have lingered long, and may be heard still in the wilder portions of Italy. All classes were subject to Tarantism. A philosophic bishop, having allowed himself bitten by a Tarantula, danced as fast and as furiously as the peasants. AGENT FOR THE QUEEN JEWEL HIGH GRAD...

KIPPUR SERMON. Delivered by Dr. Calisch Last Tuesday Evening. By my life, saith the Eternal God, I do not desire the death of the wicked, but that he should forsake his evil ways and live: return, return, oh ye wicked, and why will ye die, oh house of Israel ?—Ezekiel xxxiii, 11. My Friends : As we are gathered here 1n our house of prayer on this sacred atonement eve, our hearts are touched by the deep solemnity of the hour. We have put aside the cares and interests of our material life, and we are assembled in humble reverence at the throne of our God, to hear the message which the great day brings to us. There comes to me now the fragment of a poem thats fits so well to this moment, for "It tells how at twilight in Heaven, A great bell gently swings, And if we but pause and listen We can hear the message it brings. If we put from our heart's inmost chamber, All the sin and sorrow and strife, All the envy and heartache and longing, That hinder the wheels of life; If we thrust from ...

and trials; there are obstacles to overcome, hills to climb, difficulties to surmount, and steep crags up which to make toilsome ascent, but the path leadeth ever upward and onward, and there is no fear of treacherous sands, of sinking marshes or morasses. But leading from the straight path of life are luxurious byways of vice and sin. They are carpeted with the grass of ease and brightened with the sweet flowers of plenteous luxury. They entice the unwary travelers, they tempt and allure into their haunts of pleasure, and the sylvan dells of glib-tongued falsehood and deceit. And alas, many yield and are led astray. It is so much easier to follow the inclinations of pleasure than the rigid lines of duty. But entered into them, the danger is soon apparent. The weak victim repents him of his weakness, and struggles to free himself from the insidious clasp of vice. And as he struggles there comes to him a friend, benign and strong,* of grace and majesty divine. This friend is with us ...

The Jewish South. DEVOTED TO THE INTERESTS OF JUDAISM. Vol. I. RICHMOND, VA., FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 1893. No. 6. RICHMOND NEWS. A number of improvements in the synagogue music are in contemplation. Messrs. Henry and Nathan Strause of Henderson, N. C, were in the city this week. If there is much more rain, even the most orthodox will hardly feel like praying for it next Monday. In future no children under the age of six or over sixteen will be received in the Beth Ahaba Sunday school. The fruit used in the Succoth decorations at the Synagogue Beth Ahaba was afterwards sent to the Jewish poor. We hear nothing of the Bazaar that was to have been held this Fall. Have "hard times" caused an abandonment of the project? Billiards and pool are on a boom at the Mercantile Club. The receipts from that source of late have been among the largest known. Mr. Joseph Cohn, reader of the congregation Beth Shalom entertained a number of friends last Monday in the Succoth at his residence. The Sir Mos...

A Legend of Solomon. A Circassian Tradition. A long, long time ago, Solomon, the son of David, reigned over all created things. This wise and powerful monarch understood all the languages of men, the cries of beasts the hiss of reptiles, the notes of birds, the speech of the lofty trees, and thesoft murmeroftheflowers. Solomon had assigned to each creature his proper food. To some he had given the flesh of the weaker animals; to others the herbs of the field, or the fruits which ripen on tree or shrub. To the Serpent the son of David had said: "Thou shalt be nourished with the blood of man." And so the Serpent, hidden in the grass, watched for the approach of man, and sprang upon him in order to drain his blood. The unhappy mortals murmured so loudly at this that the sound reached the ears of Solomon, who said to Man: "Why dost thou complain?" "Sire, the Serpent lives on our blood; our race will soon disappear!" "Go, I will bear in mind thy prayer," replied the son of David. Solomon...

Some sage once ventured the opinion that "all the reasonings of men are not worth one sentiment of women." His opinion was amply verified by the difference in the amount of attention that was bestowed upon the Jewish Denominational Congress and the Jewish Women's Congress. The former included among its speakers the foremost thinkers and speakers of the rabbinate and the laity, who were not greeted as they deserved, nor were the sessions of the congress attended becomingly. The Jews of Chicago acted most ungraciously, being eminently conspicuous by their absence and lack of interest. The attendance at the sessions was mostly composed of the Rabbis th...

SABBATH AND SUCCOTH. i Dr. Calisch on Roanoke and the • Festival. On last Sabbath the usual large i congregation was found at "Beth i Ahaba." Rabbi Calisch took his text from the xxm Chap. Deute- j ronomy, which deals with the bless- i ings bestowed on the children of ; Israel. I He said in beginning that, i it was obedience to the law j that brought the blessing; that the i blessings of health, of progeny, 1 prosperity, peace, and content i were the results that of necessity I came from law-abiding, temperate and chaste living. The people of i Israel were to-day the living testi- < mony of obedience to law under the most trying and adverse circumstances. The test of a people's civilization was the measure of its obedience to law. The fair fame of Virginia had been sullied by two occurrences that had occurred during the last ten days—one at Amelia Courthouse and one at Roanoke. There was no prosecution sufficiently great, no crime so heinous as to justify people to overtu...

proud and the poor, the prince and I the pauper, the wise and the simple, the monarch and the menial are all brought to the throne of God to be judged on the basis of merit only. Men may look to the outside, and may raise up barriers and make distinctions between each other, but the judge on high, looks into the heart and reads the reasonings of the recesses of the soul. There is another thought comes to us in connection with this festival, and that because our thoughts are turned to the fields and forests. There is just and earnest fear in regard to thechangingclimaticconditions of many portions of the country. Destructive wind and rain storms are becoming more and more frequent in localities where, eight or ten years ago, they were comparatively unknown. Floods and ' overflows and inundations [ add new terrors to both urban and rural life, and claim many victims in human and animal life, and in property. These are not visitations of Providence. They are the results of man's inordi...

RICHMOND NEWS. The funeral of Mrs. Meyer, who was formerly Miss Sarah Ellick of this city, was held here last Wednesday. Dr. Calisch officiated. Mrs. Meyer had lived in Asheville, N. C, since her marriage, less than two years ago. Invitations are out for the marriage of Miss Rebecca Whitlock and Harry S. Binswanger. Beth Abala Synagogue Thursday evening, October 17th, at 7:30 o'clock, is the time and place. A meeting of the Congregation Kenesath Israel will be held Sunday morning. Married At Home. The marriage last Tuesday of Miss Minnie Goldenberg of this city, and Mr. Oberndorf of Selma, Alabama, was the first of this Fall's series.

Goldenberg, 610 N. 9th St. Only immediate relatives of the bridal pair were present, among the non-residents being the groom's father, and Miss Hessberg of Danville.

THE PARLIAMENT OF RELIGIONS. Have we not all one Father? Has not one God created us? Malachi 11, 10. My Friends:— It had been my desire to speak of the Parliament of Religions from the begining of the month, but deemed it best to wait until it had closed, so that it might be viewed in its entirety, and all its activities commented upon. It closed on Wednesday last, the 27th of this month, having begun on the eleventh. The idea of the parliament was, with but one exception, hailed with enthusiam on all sides. Every earnest and open minded lover of his kind could not but rejoice that so grand and glorious a consummation was finally to be achieved, and now that it has been achieved so grandly and harmoniously, the questions arise uppermost in the mind, "what will be the result thereof," "what its influence" and "what its lessons." The Parliament in its plan and method of operation, was exceedingly simple. From the 11th to the 27th inclusive, was the Parliament proper. Every religion, e...

ulation between faiths as which can influence the more good and which can the greater make for righteousness. Let the followers of every creed preach its beauties in their lines, and by the inexorable law of truth, that one shall be destined to survive which causes noblest deeds, purest thoughts, most honorable lives, which moves the accomplishment of the highest ideals, and the promotion of the highest civilization. That religion must, of an inevitable and irresistible necessity, survive which nourishes and strengthens the better, truer, godlier part within us, and which brings daily nearer the realization of that high and glorious plane which is the ultimate destiny of human existence. Let this be to us the lesson taught by this parliament of religions—not so much by doctrine as by deed; not so much by catechism and by creed as by life and labor, shall our faith be by us vindicated, and shall Judaism claim her title, not only as the source but also as the end of all spiritual aspi...
