Mr. and Mrs. J. Lamm and littlr son, after having spent a delightful winter in Norfolk, have left for Washington, D. C, to reside. Mr. and Mrs. Moses Marx left for Washington, via Baltimore, last Monday night, to spend the holidays with their mother, Mrs. Z. Schmidt. pleasing Unctbents in Jacob nDorbecai's Xife. To the Editor of The Jewish South : I experienced much gratification in perusing in your valuable paper of the 18th of March a sketch of the life of my old and revered friend, Mr. Jacob Mordecai, which was read before the Jewish Historical Society at its last annual meeting. I formed the acquaintance of Mr. Mordecai in 1834, soon after locating in Richmond, Va., and can well recall to mind his silvery locks, whilst I was comparatively a young man. At that time the Jewish population was very small —but one synagogue, the Congregation Beth Shalome, worshiping on Mayo above Franklin street. Mr. Mordecai was the Parnass, and not having a Hazan, he read the services on Sabbaths a...

Jews did not crucify Christ —it was the Romans who scourged him and finally nailed him to the cross. If it be true that the Jews solicited his death, then how many of them? Only a priestly sect in Jerusalem. Is it fair, then, to condemn an entire nation for the sins of a few and to persecute innocent descendants after nineteen hundred years have passed by? That would be a very dangerous precedent to establish • According to that, we ought to persecute the Greeks for causing Socrates to drink the fatal cup; the Italians because so many martyrs were thrown to the lions in the Roman Coliseum; the English for the flames at Smithfield; the French for the Eve of St. Bartholomew, and the dreadful and bloody Spaniards for the horrors of the Inquisition, and now for the destruction of the Maine, with its 256 innocent martyrs! The Jews are not the only people who have put to death some of their teachers; such conduct is as old as history. Take up that of the medieval ages and see with how muc...

6 THE JEWISH SOUTH. ANENT an article on Passover, the Jewish Criterion said among other things in its last issue: "Certainly, the Jews born and bred amid filthy and noisome conditions were physically better able to endure the stomach-racking edible than the moderns, accustomed to healthful surroundings! " The exclamation point (which appears in the original) is extremely appropriate, for this is certainly a remarkable statement. Of all the bad qualities ascribed to the Jews this is the first time we have ever seen filthiness included in the list; and by what process of reasoning is it deduced that a man raised in filth is physically stronger thin one who is not? It may be, as the writer says, that the stomachs of our tenderly raised and carefully coddled young men of to-day are weaker than those of their ancestors. However, this is not the only portion of their anatomy that has deteriorated. As to the inuendo that filth is a concomitant of the matzoth, we are sure that it would neve...

he likewise observed that the guests were indulging in too much joy, and took a vessel of white glass and shattered it to pieces in their presence, which likewise caused them to grieve." As an explanation to this peculiar action of both rabbis the Tosaphoih adds that from this procedure the custom to break a glass has been adopted (Tosaphoth ad loc.). From all this, however, no definite rule has, nor can it be, adopted ; andjwhy the glass should be broken by the groom immediately after the recital of the benediction is only a matter of conjecture, and if one is not inclined to accept the theory of rabbinical casuistry, he cannot consistently conform with that act of superstition, which originated at the earliest in the fifth century of our era. What some maintain, that a "Minhag" (a custom) is equal to a law, cannot be comfortably applied to this case, though the codifiers of the rabbinical laws mention it, that it is the custom for the groom to break a glass, they fail to state whe...

man? In how many of our cities is the wealth of the Jews greater in proportion to their number as compared to other classes of citizens? Even with their rich Jews, a pro rata division of all the money among the Jews in this country would leave them as poor a class as it contains. Pro rate all their wealth among the 75,000 Jews of Chicago, and I venture to say that they would possess less than almost any other class in the city with whom it would be just to make a comparison. If, therefore, a few rich Jews are doing harm with their accumulated wealth — which is an economic question I am not competent to answer—why should the poverty-stricken millions be made to suffer? I am perfectly willing that the whole vexed problem should be settled by giving up the wealth of a score of bankers, if that will settle it—which it won't.- Jewish Daily News. k Established 50 years and still in the lead. 1 Artistic Memorials in Jlarble and Granite. 3 r ■ Largest Stock in the South, ready for immediate...

proval is not without its religious phase. We want to convince the non-Jewish world that we are not all benighted, superstitious and stiff-necked as our fathers. There is an air of polite decorum in our religious assemblies; our music is exquisite; our rabbis are eloquent; our prayers —why, we have even risen so far as to have our service in English, instead of the old language of the Psalmist and the prophets. The non-Jew coming among us can feel himself perfectly at home, even not missing frequent and favorable allusions to the founder of Christianity. Is not all of this a sign of great enlightenment? It might also seem as if the words of Jesus might again be repeated : "Ye compass sea und land to make one proselyte." Atter all, is not this desire to please but a survival in anew-born form of the "ghetto-bend?" What need have we to placate—to change our own customs and inherited traditions, simply because outsiders may not understand or may even deride? Religiously we do not need ...

Single Copy, Five Cents. Advertising Rate, 50 cents per inch. Resolutions and other Reading Notices, 10 cents per line. Entered at the Post-Office, Richmond, Va., as second class matter. "IF the clash of arms must come, the Jews will be found ready to do their duty. As Americans, whether native or by adoption, they will stand by the flag that knows no difference of faith, while as Jews they will be urged on by the memories of the Inquisition, the creak of whose wheel and the roar of whose fires still break upon the ear and forbid any affection for the land of the hidalgos." The above is from the American Hebrew, of New York, which is conceded to be the leading conservative Jewish paper in this country. It is edited not by an individual, but by a board of editors, and its utterances are weighed accor...

ness of jewels. But forcenturies they were compelled to carry their wealth in that portable and easily secreted form, for the Jew was the ball that every Christian power could pitch and toss at the heart's will. Any bigoted priest, any stupid peasant, any impecunious robber baron and covetous and despotic king could stir up the Jewish nation. The order of an imbecile prince or some medieval Haman sufficed to drive the Jews from their homes. Is it a wonder then that they sought to invest their money in property that could be easily transported in case of emergency, to which the Jews were often subjected. But leaving the ancient and medieval times, let us turn to the present. Can anyone of my readers form an idea as to how many millions of dollars were taken away from the poor Jews when the terrible ukase issued by Alexander 111. with his accession to the throne was published, that in twenty-four hours all the Jews should be driven out from the large cities. 0, it was a terrible time ...

wccitvc.icu uy uisappoinxment, stnte and sorrow. Famine finally drove him into a country where vice held sway under the dual dominion of superstition and tyranny. Here he found food for his famished family, and was again united to a beloved son whom he had mourned as dead (now restored in the fulness of manhood's wisdom and power). But the bitter waters of Marah had still to be drained, for he had left his graves behind him, and his prophetic soul told him that his progeny would inherit troubles beyond the conception of the most gifted imagination. His wanderings ceased only with his death, and Israel's family sat down in the land of Goshen to enjoy the heritage earned by Joseph as a reward of courage, chastity, wisdom and statesmanship (displayed) in a country where it was a disgrace for an Egyptian to break bread with a Hebrew. We of the present day, who have felt the icy hand of prejudice in either a milder or severer form, can readily imagine the bitter sensations of a Joseph, w...

he had to undergo. "It is one of the marvels of history." Thus we approach the period of the first authentic history of the settlement of the Jews in Germany. Settlements which afterwards degenerated into the Ghetto, a name associated in the mind with all that is noble yet debasing; the home of family affection and mental suffering; the nursery of foul-air germs and physical woes; the quarter in which efforts were seemingly directed to crush all sentiment of patriotirrn and philanthropy. That the Jew has emerged from this embryo condition with a love for his fellowman and equipped to become a model citizen of any country that grants him liberty, adds another to the marvels of history and goes far to prove the stamina that courses undefiled through a race that received its endowment four thousand years ago and still retains its strength after all the tribulations of past events. The Italian Jews derived the word which they spelled "Gueto"from the Hebrew word "Get," bill of divorce; t...
