THE TWO CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 23 July 1897
THE TWO CHILDREN. The Emperor Adrian, having prohibited the Israel ites, under pain of death, from practising the rite of circumcision, Rabbi Simon declared that even the love of life must yield to the performance of religious ordinances, and in defiance of the royal decree circumcised a son which was born to him. The tyrant having instituted a rigorous search, Rabbi Simon with resignation awaited a fate which appeared ineventible, when the Empress, affected at the intelligence of such r-r-n ra trpnn -? nip»tv ransfir! hf*r nwn rliiirl fn hp- culi. stituted for that of Rabbi Simon, and thus the child escaped detection on the day of examination. Uuited from their birth by this sympathetic bond, these two children were of happy destiny. The son of the Empress was afterwards the Emperor Antoninus, surnamed the Pious ; and the Hebrew child became Rabbi Judah, called the Holy, and was remarkable for his scientific attainments and the high religious dignities he obtained, as for his devot...

NEWS FROM CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA The Hebrew Public School was formally opened recently by Dr. Muir, Superintendent-General of Edu cation. The building is situated in Hope Mill Terrace at the top of the Avenue, and with the ground adjoin ing forms an excellent site for a school.

« THE QUEEN OF THE JEWS.' ? ?? » ? Lectube by 'Rev.- Dr. Abrahams. The announcement of a lecture under the title- of ' The Queen of the Jews ' by the Rev. Dr. Abrahams in aid of the Fever Hoppital crowded the Melbourne Town Hall long before the ad\ei'tise«l hour of ' commencement, and hundreds of people vainly lingered round the door.s for a fall hour afterwards in hope of by some means gaining admission. Dr. Abrahams said that- among the many // -C V.' v' ? /'' , '? - ''' ' -fa-. ' ' citizens who dwelt beneath the British flag there were the representatives of many religions. Yet we were now beginning to realise that we were not constituted into separate communitiea, divided by distinct hopes or aspirations, but irk our devotion to the British throne we formed one harmonious brotherhood, linked together in one sacred fellowship No section of Her Majesty's subjects could more realise the import of her rule than those professing the Jewisll faith.

Addkess by Rev. A. T. Boaz. - On Sunday afternoon a service of prayer and thanksgiving was held at the Synagogue, Run die street, Adelaide, and was largely attended, not only by members of the Adelaide Hebrew Congregation, but by many visitors. The- ? building was decorated with flowers and mot toes. A special choir was improvised for the occasion, and the singers were well trained by Mr. A. H. G. Nash, who acted as musical con ductor and organist. The service opened with Marchant's 'Processional March,' and after the chanting of two psalms by the choir and the reading of the afternoon service, the rabbi, the Rev. A. T. Boaz, delivered an eloquent sermon. He took his text from II. Samuel xxiv., 3 and 4, and having referred to the success of the 40 years' reign of David, went on to say : — If the material prosperity of his realm and the permanence, so far as human wisdom can provide, of that prosperity which he was instrumental in bringing about, were causes for Israel's king to chan...

Address by Rev. J. Lenzer. A special service of prayer and thanksgiving was held by the East Melbourne Hebrew con gregation at the Albert-street synagogue, Mel bourne. The interior of the building, had been decorated by the ladies of the congregation. A picturesque drapery of red, white and blue silk surrounded the pulpit, the chancel being en framed in the same colors, and behind the altar was a handsome screen, with a crown supported by two British lions worked in gold on a black ground. There was a large attend ance. After the intonation, the psalm, and the evening service, the Rev. J. Lenzer deli vered a short sermon. Opening with the re mark that it was not only from its material, but from its moral, aspect that the reign of Queen Victoria was unparalleled in the world's history, he said that in the past the triumphs standing among the deeds of nations were almost invariably the result of conquest, and were stained with some people's blood. While one country was celebrating her...

Musical Echoes. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 23 July 1897
[?] We are to have our distinguished co-religionist artist, Mark Hambourg and his brother amongst us once again. . Miss Sylvia Blackstone played her ' Silverstream ' waltz as an extra at the Jewish E ducation Board's Ball. Its tunefulness and method were subject of com plimentary remark. Are we to have another Hebrew Melody Concert ? Judging from the appreciation with which the last Concert was received, and the cordial support accorded 1 to it, some move is warranted in this direction. The Mikado Amateur Opera Company, which suc ceeded in filling the Criterion Theatre on. several occasions in support of the Self Denial Fund for the Great Synagogue and United Hebrew Charities, seems, although much prospect of its continuance was pre dicted, to have dropped cut of existence. Cannot some. stePS be taken to revive the creditable little company ? The origin of some favorite songs is always a subject of interest to those who sing and those who hear them sung. For instance, Foster, the co...

- '?*^. ^-*-^tx. ^r^**^^*^ J-^'^*^*^ — — . Our friends in Victoria and South Australia have forwarded us the Argus and Register, mentioning they are excellent reports in the usual creditable style of these journals, and we hasten to acknowledge the source of the Record Reign addresses. The London Jewish Chronicle is one of the strong links of Judaism. Its excellent reports and news show a vast and unlimited resource. We are indebted like wise to this source for much foreign news. . ; The Jewish Chronicle has an eulogistic notice of the late Baron de Hirsch, from its correspondent in Paris. It deals with the memorial services on the first anniversary of his death. Space permitting, we shall extract for our next issue. The report on. the Jewish Colonisation scheme is worthy of attention. 'Jewish Progress in the Victorian Era' is accompanied by photos, of Sir George Jesell, Master of the Rolls, Sir Francis H. Goldsmid, First Jewish Barrister, and Numa Hartog, Senior Wrangler, 1869.

RETROSPECT OF THE LADIES' AID SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 23 July 1897
Retrospect of' the Ladies' Aid Society. One afternoon in May, 1894, a Jewish lady called upon a friend to tell her of a sad case of poverty. A widow was left with a large family to support — her husband having died after a long illness — and as he had not been able to work for a long time the family were left in a sorry plight. This friend saw at a glance that temporary help in a small way was next to useless, and it was necessary to put this unfortunate person in a way ofjearning, so that she and her family would be able to support themselves without the yoke of charity hanging around their necks to make them bow their heads. Well, the outcome of this conver sation was : — A meeting of a few friends was called, a President, Secretary, and Treasurer was installed, and a successful dance was held at the Paddington Town Hall by fwhich nearly ,£100 was raised after all expenses were paid. It was found that other friends had come forward and helped this lady, and the whole of this amoun...
Record Reign Celebrations. THE JEWISH SERVICES. ACCESSION DAY AT THE GREAT SYNAGOGUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 23 July 1897
Record reign Celebrations THE JEWISH SERVICES. Accession Day at the Great Synagogue. &nbsp; The congregants filled the Synagogue on the afternoon of Sunday, June 20th, 5657-1897, to join in the thanksgiving service at the cele bration of the anniversary of Her Majesty's record reign. The Rev. A. D. Wolinski read Mincha. The Rev. A. B. Davis officiated in his almost matchless manner, considering his well preserved voice, age, and bearing. Mr. &nbsp; Sydney Moss rendered his task admirably in &nbsp; the arrangement of the musical service, and deserves the special thanks of the community. Herr Vollmar, as usual with any function he takes delight in, had liis orchestra and chorus worked up-' to perfection, the effect of the introduction, adapted from Schu bert, being particularly pleasing. Where all have done so well it is extremely difficult to particula rise. Among the amateur in strumentalists we noticed Miss Minna Hollander, Miss De Lissa, Mr. H. Kahn, and Mr...
MASONIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 23 July 1897
Masonic. Lodge Aurora has perhaps the largest list of Jewish members in the colony. Mr. Barnett, of the Monte- &nbsp; foire Home, is Secretary. The appointment of Wor. Bro. Teece deserves to be popular, although a better Deputy Grand Master than V.W. Bro. T. E. Spencer for real work will be hard to find. Mr. Mark Harris was recently elected Chaplain of Lodge Sydney Tarbolton. Lodge Sydney St. Andrew is smarting keenly under the United Grand Lodge reprimand. We trust that when cool consideration is given the matter, all talk of surrendering the Charter will be vaunted.

Notes and Comments. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 30 July 1897
Qto&0 *nt Comment I£ a coat of paint were applied to the skin of a human being, death would ensue in five hours. People glory in sorts of bravery except the bravery they might show on behalf of their . nearest neighbour. Justice consists of doing no injury to mend decency, in giving no offence. Many people take no care of their money till they have come near the end of it, and others do the same with their time. Lord Beaconsfield declared that nothing was so beneficial to the young man as to have a woman criticise him. The best way is to get married. I dislike the friend who encompassed me with a faithless heart, who like a fly decended upon the oil of my friendship and caused it to go rancid.— Ibn Ezra. A friend who, when meeting thee, tells thee ,' confidently of thy short- coinings, is preferable :*v to the one who gives thee a g^ld coin as often as he meets thee. Religion is a thing much talked about, but little understood ; much pretended to, but very little practised, ...
