Rebie[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 30 July 1897
(Refnctt^ ' The Liberal Faith ' edited by Rev. George Walters is to hand. The journal enters upon' its second year with its August number. In one of its ai tides the Rev. gentleman proceeds as follows: — l- So far as Unitarianism means Unity in the faiih, in the. Father- hood of God and the Brotherhood of Man, we are J justified in saying that Jesus was a Unitarian. He was 1 a Tew. born of Hebrew parents, and broueht up amon? : his own people. From them he .inherited the glorious | doctrine of the Unity. He beli.ev d in the one God' | whom he, li'^e other Jewish teachers before him, called ' Our Father. ' Whatever may have been the other matters upon which he afterwards differed from the leaders and teachers of his Church, he seems never to have wavered in his allegience to that fundamental doctorine of ' The Unity,' and thus far he, and every Jew to-day and every Unitarian, is a fellow-believer and fellow-worshipptr of the One Divine and Eternal Spirit'. . . The fourth annual ball ...
EDITORIAL MUSINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 30 July 1897
EDITORIAL MUSINGS. A' ye wha think it unco nice, Tae edit a bit paper, Had better ponder o'er it twice Before you try the caper. Else ye may rue when rather late. An' bann the hour ye tried it, ?'.?? An' wish far onie ither fate, Although ye try tae hide it, Wi' smile serene. Here hae I sat for five lang hours, Mang reams 'an reams o' matter, Straining, taxing a' my powers, Wi' scarce a drink o' watter. Tae pick and wale frae 'mong the lot, Some gems o' composition, That may be read an1 then forgot, Wi' careless indecision. By tentless cuifs. Still there's a pleasure in the task, Tho' cares around do warp it, What sphere o' life's a bless, I ask, Let's ken, that I may start it. Kings, Counsellors, and cabinet chiels, As weel's the common ploughman. Hae maist the pleasures mix'd wi' care, An' dread some muckle boo-man, Wha mocks their fun. My boo-man is my readers' frown, My readers' condemnation. My rich reward, my laurel crown, Their smiles o' commendation. Hence, hour by hour, I p...

THE JEWISH YOUNG MEN'S ASSOCIATION. A letter directed to the Editor has the following scheme for a Young Men's Jewish Association : — *' To have a secret society to which the leading ladies and gentlemen of the colony be asked to become members. The outline of the ritual to be used to be approved by the Chief Rabbi, Dr. Adler, and thus make it a universal brotherhood within the brotherhood of Israel, like the superior degrees or jereemasonry are to rree masonry. Meetings to be held monthly, when the ancient usages and customs be explained by lectures, etc. Foreigners to be specially invited, and an occasional discussion in Yiddish or foreign tongue be arranged. So much of our ritualistic ceremony is dying out thai: young people have not much idea of of what Judaism has been.'' Then follows a scheme for benevolence, and a list of fourteen names of promised members.
HOME TRAINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 30 July 1897
HOME TRAINING. Make the children happy in the home. To be made happy does not mean that the wishes and the comfort of the household should be sacrificed for them, for this would be indul gence and would foster lawlessness. Very early in life the child can be taught that self indulgence and the anger that follows the denial of unwholesome demands does not bring happiness. Too often the training of the will is left until the habit is -so fixed of yielding to it, that to subdue it is a task requiring time and patience. A strong will is a tower of strength if only it be moulded to obedence and not al lowed to grow untrained. The parent who would leave the body uutraiued until the child was old enough to know and express its desires — esjmciaUy if there were an inclination so an overgrowth in one direction at the ex cense of another — would feel responsible for any deformity that might be the result. It should be recognized that for healthy growth, and vigor, the three natures of the chi...

ENGAGEMENT PRESENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 30 July 1897
ENGAGEMENT PRESENTS. The giving of costly articles as 'engagement, presents' is an innovation which obtains, almost exclusively among Hebrews. It was an unnecessary innovation ; utterly uncalled for, and should be discontinued. There is nothing in the custom that can recommend it ; and its. i-nf.^nrln /-.+.! rvn Tw Trifl.nv Vlflff TOfl.f?P. till A £rivin» of the same an arbitrary command. If the present given at the engagement of a couple- x were intended to take the place of the wedding- . present, there might have been some excuse for its introduction, But it is not so intended. Every recipient of such a gift at an engagement, expects to receive an equally or more expensive present at the wedding. Wi'h rare exceptions the donors of these engagement presents are averse to making the gift, but they are, so to speak, compelled to do so simply because others do. In most cases it is an unwilling and. enforced gift, as every donor- is bound to give twice. It is in most instances a tax p...
WHY JEWS DO NOT HAVE MISSIONARIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 30 July 1897
WHY JEWS DO NOT HAVE MISSION ARIES. BY RABBI L. WEISS. We are often asked the question by sorne of our Christian friends, why we do not send out missionaries into the world as they do. Why we are so selfish in keeping the God- given re ligion—as we claim that Judaism is — to ourselves instead of making an effort to git up propaganda to convert the people to our way of V»plipf ? T^nf, Vip.fnrp. -wp. answer t.ViPRP. imrmtfl, tions, it is meet to say, it is exactly the opposite to selfishness on our part that we do not try to convert others, because we believe that the religion of our neighbour is as good to him as ours is to us, and both is acceptable before God . . if they are sincere convictions. We are ready and but too willing to enlighten all inquirers, as we constantly do, but we do not attempt to harass anyone with our views, since we do not like to be harrassed in return, for we do not propagate such doctrines that give certain people a patent- right to the kingdom of heaven. ...
DEATH OF MR. B. I. BARNATO, [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 30 July 1897
DEATH OF MR. B. I, BARNATO, A profound sensation was caused in Johan nesburg shortly before 11 o'clock this morning, (June 15), by rumors that Mr. B. I. Barnato had committed suicide by jumping overboard from the Scot when that vessel was nearing MarHorn. vps+.errlfl.v n.ft.ernnnn. Mr. 'Rarnafcn ..was architect of his own fortunes. He came ' to South Africa when quite a youth, and cast in his fortunes with the diamond fields, which were then but newly opened. He himself has often narrated the story of his early discourage ments. Before even he hud reached Kimberley, .when he was making his way there in fact, with little more, than the proverbial fivepence in his pocket, some of his returning acquaint ances endeavored to dissuade him from pro ceeding on what they believed to be little better than a mad adventure ; but he went right on, and was not long at the dry diggings before he was able to establish himself. One of his first enterprises was a saloon, at which he did a ^thriving b...
