Around the World. From English awl American Sources. ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 26 November 1897
Around the World. From English and American Sources. ? + ? ENGLAND. ? The Board of Management of a London Synagogue have acted w;sely in deferring to the wishes of many of the regular attendants, and rescinding their proposal to alter the hour of service from 11 to 10.15. It is interesting to hear that the proposed alteration met with the utmost opposition. There has always been a good, attendance of ladies on Sabbath. The late hour of commencement enabled ladies living at a distance to rp,ach thp SvnaeDfmp, easily and with comfort, while many living in the near neighbourhood found it very conven ient to be able to make their domestic arrangements before proceeding to Synagogue. The attendance of so many women and children as regular worshippers is a feature of a Synagogue service that is most gratifying, and why it is that opportunities are not regularly given to congregations to meet together and discuss matters affecting the services and general conduct of affaiis. No Synagogue s...
"Jewish" Usurers. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 26 November 1897
' Jewish' Usurers. Ihe following letter was addressed by Mr. Oswald J. Simon to the ' Spectator, 'but was not published in that journal : — TO THE EDITOE OF THE ' BPECTATOK.' Sir, — There appears in the ' Spectator J- of last Saturday n very na.tural and proper coii ment in one of your Editorials upon the recent exposure ol a case of extreme usury. The adjective ' Jewish ' is placed before the mis creant referred to. He is called a ' Jewish money, lender,' and then the ineventible reference to ' ' Shylock v — that utterly wicked creation from which. Jews have so much suffered — is brought forward. The sense of hereditary duty compels me to make an emphatic protest against this use of the word ' Jewish.' In doing so, however, I am fully aware that no intention of giving offence to the Jewish community was in the mind of the writer of the article. On the contrary I know as well as anyone that the singularly high tone on the ' Spectator/' and the lofty principles of the members of its ...
Yom Kippur at the Great Assembly Hall. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 26 November 1897
Yom Kippur at the Great Assembly ((all Israel, as of old, at prayer ! Fully an hour before the appointed time eager worshippers trooped into the Great Assembly Hall, Mile End Boai), on Kol Nidrei. Young and old took their seats quietly, women engaging in private devotions. But a great mass remained outside, and within the hall came a plea for Rach rnonoth. It was Yom Kippur, should a Jew be refused admission whilst there was breathing room in the hall, and this wish, expressed somewhat exmtpdlv. was acceded to. and some ten score of the waiting crowd were allowed to enter. Softly the Ghasaa begins the 'All Vows,' gradually he raises his voice until the . third recital of the Kol Nidrei it has attained its full pitch, finding a mighty echo in the com bined voices of this huge mass of worshippprs. In humble words the Rev, Dayan Susman Cohen addresses the people, the ring of meek piety is in his every word. 'Deftly, simply, he expands the atonement, its religious side, the human view, ...
HOW SEATS CAN BE FREED AND THE SYNAGOGUE FUNDS AMPLY PROVIDED. To the Editor of the Hebrew Standard. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 26 November 1897
HOW SEATS CAN BE FREED AND THE SYNAGOGUE FUNDS AMPLY PROVIDED. To the Editor of the Hebrew Standard. Sir, — As is enjoined by our sages, ' A truly righteous man attends his livelihood or business, as well as his religious duties, each in its due season and appointed time.' So with & congregation is it necessary — where its ministers and officers are precluded following on their own account any business vocation wherefrom a livelihood for their families can be obtained — that ample funds should be provided by its members, to maintain those officers in fair comfort, that they of a surety discharge their functions as our laws enjoin and require of them. In consequence, any honorable method, and the more independent and voluntary, untainted with aught akin to charitable beggary in obtaining those necessary funds to financially support our Synagogue, the more righteous is the act on the part of its directors and members. This spirit of voluntary oblations has from the Creation, s...

Is Life 'Worth Living? This question is not , asked as a mere caprice, but is a problem that vexes and annoys far too many of us in the . hurry scurry and pressure of the times we live - in. There is consolation in this, that it is not a^new vexation, as the echo comes down with the tidings of generations gone by, like so many other unanswered and unanswerable queries. King Solomon, with all his wisdom, indulges in speculation on the subject. ' Vanity of vanities ; all is vanity.' And, r later, answers his doubts in words expressing i. that if man were encompassed with, all the ills, ?; trials, and tribulations that it were possible for him to bear, it must not deter him from turning witk thanks to G-od for the blessing of life. The man in middle life, harassed'and worried by business troubles, with the cares of a large and dependent family upon him, deserted by friends who fawned upon him in times of affluence, cheated by people he trusted, and who robbed him of the money he honest...

Sir Moses Montefiore Home. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE HEBREW STANDARD.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 26 November 1897
Sir Moses Montefiore Hort]e. (To the Editor of the Hebrew Standard.) Sir, — Aru.nor has got abroad with reference to the adverse treatment of one of the late inmates of ' Sir Moses Montefiore Home ' by those in authority, the truth or otherwise of which I think should, in the interest of the institution, be made manifest. It is only fair to state that the unfortunate person referred to has not in any way complained, but is loud in his praise of the Matron and Committee for kindness and consideration received at their hands while he was an inmate at the Home. The rumor referred to is to this effect : That a highly respectable man through sickness and other misfortune became an inmate of the Home, and while there his excellent conduct met with the entire approval of the authorities. Through the excitement caused by the lamented death of the late Mr. I. Barnett, the poor man, never strong, became ill, and on the advice of the medical man, was removed to the Sydney Hospital. This action...

The Sweet Morsel—Scandal. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 26 November 1897
The Sweet Morsel— Scandal. Did you ever feed oysters ? If you have you have noticed with what a clatter the shells close. They take in the food thrown to them and shut their shells with an audible, clattering delight. They absorb, as it were, the nourish ment. If you attempt to open that same shell, to take a glance at the little mollusk inside, or to see if it has secreted within its solitary home a precious pearl, you wm mm iu uiuseu wguu, and force sufficient to destroy life is necessary to accomplish your purpose. The gossipers are eager to take in all they hear derogatory to the character of an opponent, but are closed tight against uttering any word of praise. Idle gossip is the child of slander. It ^ feeds on false hood and thrives on assassination of reputa tion Gossip is many-sided, but every one is a crooked side, it absorbs all of evil that is known to it. It is like an imperfect mirror, which, reflecting back your image in a distorted shape, you cannot recognise yourself...
