Obituary. Mrs. Theodore Lenneberg. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 3 December 1897
OUtuatp. Mrs. Theodore Lenneberg. From Queensland comes the sad news that Mrs. Theodore Lenneberg died on Monday evening last at her residence at the New Crown Hotel, George-stree Brisbane. Mrs. Amelia Lenneberg was the third daughter of Mr. Alfred Joseph, of Parramatta Road Sydney and sister to Mrs. Solomons, Mrs. Hart, Mrs. Keyzer, and the late Mrs. Henry Meyers. The intelligence has caused a painful gloom in her large Lenneberg's devotion to the cause of philanthropy and charity, as she appeared to take delight in doing good for the sake of the good itself. She devoted much time and spent much of her means in supporting the Hebrew [Ladies' Dorcas and kindred Societies, and by visiting the poor and those suffering from illness she endeared herself to rich and poor alike* To Mrs. Lenneberg the existence of the Hebrew Ladies' Dorcas Society may be acknowledged, and in all quarters she was recognised to have the true Jewish heart of a Mother in Israel— ^-j fW8 Miss Lenneberg activly ...
Biblical Pictures. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 3 December 1897
Biblical Pictures. There is hardly a great artist but has tried to give us a representation of the men and women of Bible history. We have seen hundreds of these pictures, pain ted by the great masters; we have admired their composition, their color or their poetry, and have turned away dissatis fied because the presentation corresponded, not with our conception, but with the artist's. We did not feel it to be true. The artist jjujihuq, i.\jL iijoucuiiuc, VVJ.J.OJU 1O UU JU1U1 cLil IKXiddil Deborah ; he gives her the features of a favorite model, folds her in draperies having a vaguely Oriental or distinctly local air; gives her pseudo- Judaic surroundings, and sets her in any light but the southern sun. He may still catch sight of the ideal Deborah, but to us she is obscured by incongruities. A French artist, hitherto little known, called Tissot, has strongly realised the inadequacy of Biblical pictures, and has determined to serve religion by pre senting to the world through the m...
The Tivoli. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 3 December 1897
The Tivoii. At the Tivoii fresh signs of vitality are constantly manifested. Mr. Harry Rickards id a practical man, consequently there is always a capital entertainment, and the audiences show every sign of being entirely satisfied therewith pleased to be supplied with those ' variety ' features which are not to be obtained at a regular theatre. I wonder why some of the money which through mistaken charity is devoted to the pauperisation of the poor, by building for them hospitals, work-houses and the like, is not put to a better use. A million dollars spent in the prevention of pauperism or in the cure of it is put to a better use than a hundred times the same sum invested in eleemosynary institutions which, in the long run, only serve to make poverty chronic and hereditary. Lord Rawton has been strikingly successful in his philanth ropic labor in the line of erecting model lodging houses for unmarried workingmen, the third of which is now nearing completion in London. This gentlem...
Low Rate of Jewish Mortality at Johannesburgh. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 3 December 1897
Low Rate of Jewish Mortality at Johannesburg}), There has been a deal of correspondence in the local journals respecting the appalling mortality that has recently existed in Johannes burg (through the severe drought), and how the Jewish community has been exempted from it. The Rev. J. I. Darragh, rector of St. Mary's, in writing to the Johannesburg Star, SetyS Clio SiiUUjyviiMLi ULUiaip a)iJuwu.ij.uciVA u\j a^-.£j, which means a death rate of 31.6, on a popula tion of 50,000. What makes this death rate all the more staggering is the contrast between it and the records of the Jewish Lemetery. During October only six burials took place from the Jewish portion, which gives a death rate of only 7*2 on the estimated population of 10,000. I feel sure (says the rector), that it is an under town at one sixth of the approximate estimate of 60,000 Europeans in this town and neigh bourhood ; but taking it at that, there is room for asking the reason of this striking disparity. One or two contr...

Faith. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 3 December 1897
Faith. It cannot be that He who made This wondrous world for our delight, Designed that all its charms should fade, And pass for ever out of sight ; That all shall wither and decay, . . And know on earth no life but this, With only one unite survey Of ell its beauty and its bliss, It cannot be that all the years Of toil and care and grief we live, Shall find no recompense but tears, No sweet return that earth can give ; That all that leads us to aspire And struggle onward to achieve, With every ud attained desire . Was given only to deceive. It cannot b j that all the ties Of kindred souls and loving hearts , . . Are broken when this body dies, And the immortal mind departs ; ? ?? ? That no serener light shall break At last upon our mortal eyes, ' , To guide us as our footsteps make The Pilgrimage to Paradise.

Our Perth Letter. PERTH, November 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 10 December 1897
Our Perth Letter. Sermon by Rev D 1. Freedman (From our Oorresp ndekt.) Perth, November 29, Much is being done here by our Minister and the Board of Management to place the claims of Judaism well before the community, and to arouse them to a sense of their duty to their religion and race. On Sunday last, in furtherance of these efforts, the first of iKe monthly Sunday Services was held in the Syna gogue. The service was choral, the choir acquitting themselves most creditably, in spite of the enforced absence of the choir master. The Rev. B. I. Freedmen, B.A., officiated through out, and began by reading Psalm xcv., followed by an English prayer. The usual Mincha (afternoon) service was then read, after which, the Minister having taken out the Scroll of the Law, offered up the prayer for the Royal family and a special prayer for the Congre gation. Psalm xxiv. was then sung by the choir, and the Ten Commandments were impressively read in English from the steps of the Ark. The Rev. Mr....

Around the World. Henry George. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 10 December 1897
Around the World. ? ♦* ? Henry George. The death and burial of Henry George proves ?what a great hold he had upon the affections of his fellow men, who, irrespective of nationality, cretd or difference of opinion, did honour to the memory of the hero who had been stricken with death while he was in the midst of a brave iigiiL lor bna Liguiis oi uue yvvpxv.' If one were to inquire into the causes of this popular demonstration of grief the answer would be quickly found in the fact that Mr. George was an honest, upright, fearless and unselfish man, whose sole aim in life was to be of benefit to his fellow- creatures whose only thought was for the good of others. The funeral services over the remains of Henry George were another demonstration of the brotherhood of man — a doctrine that Mr. George so sincerely upheld. Priest, minister and Rabbi — Catholic, Protestant and Jew — joined in solemnizing the occasion. The nation had lost a great man and all the world looked on in sympathy. The...

The Fallen Hero. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 10 December 1897
The Fallen Hero. The following oration was rendered at the funeral of Henry George : — 'Before the civic Contest is decided in which this brave man staked his life, death has cast his irrevocable vote in favor of him and crowned him victor in the race for a crown that outlines and will out last the transient triumph of the coming battle. ' It is a race for a worthy manhood and a benefactor of his kind. ' Friend and foe stand side by side in reverent awe by his lifeless frame. In sealing up his lips forever, death opens those of myriads to speak his £ raise and manifest their gratitude to the man whose thoughts were ever for liberty, justice and humanity. ' He advocated a social order in which every toiler shall be sure of his due reward and poverty and degradation shall be unknown. 1 A wail of grief is hea*d from all parts of the country and once more the ancient Hebrew maxim is confirmed : ' The truly wise are greater in their death than in their lives,' 'Life means conflict, and c...
