The Sons of Pity.—[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 30 July 1897
The Sons of Pity. — o^ism V2 It is extremely gratifying to read, as reprinted i in our last issue, of the genprosity and such nobleness as that displayed by our wealthy co religionists in Paris in donating so lavishly to prevent loss to the charities for which the ill fated Bazaar was held, although it is pointed «juu tj[uiut- ujLbuuiubiy Liiaii nob any uewisn cnarity might reap a benefit thereby. Yet the Jewish donors were the greatest and most spontaneous. This surely bears out our national, claim — to be the sons of pity. If it were possible to place in the hearts of all men genuine love for their fellows, we would find on earth the beginning of heaven. Each one's happiness -would be abundantly increased, and we would find the greater pleasure in giving of our abundance to those who were needy. Each of us has abun dance in some manner., if not in the world's goods. Who can measure the joy and happi ness of alleviating suffering, lifting up the fallen, and cheering the despondent ...

In many homes the receipt of this Journal was the first gleam of Judaism that had crossed the threshold for ;some time, and may be the means, by its virtues of hope and faith. To this end we seek ?and solicit all the assistance the community can lend us in the work. And there are so many ways of helping that there is little need for us to point out the paths.

Our Melbourne Letter. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 6 August 1897
Out QUefBoutne $dttu I Miss Elvira Lee, a favourite Melbourne con I tralto, will be married on August 12th, to Mr I ' Bernstein, of Ballarat. The ceremony will I take place at the residence of Mrs. D. Craw I cour, ' Corio,' Wellington-street. The Literary Ball held in the Masonic Hall -was not by any means the financial success it should have been, only about one hundred people being present. But still those who did come spent a most enjoyable evening. The weather was very bad, and this probably was the cause of the small attendance. On the fourth Wednesday Mrs. Pinkus, of 'Otira,' The Avenue, Windsor, gave a very pleasant afternoon 'at home,' the violin playing of Miss Moran adding greatly to the enjoyment. Many Newj Zealand friends were met, and a very social afternoon spent. The Melbourne Jewish Literary Society met on Monday, August 2, and there was a good attendance of member 3 present. In the absence of Mr. P. Jacobs, (President) Mr. W. Rosenhain (Vice- President), took the ch...

(Wlueie&f 45c$oe0* Madame Melba and her sister, Miss Dora Mitchell, are at the Savoy Hotel. Owing to her late illness, typhoid, blood-poisoning, and malaria, caused by insanitary sewers in Fifth-avenue, New York, which has left her subject to fits of weakness, Madame Melba has had to decline many offers of engagements, which represent a loss to her to .£26,000. The sub scribers to the Royal Italian Opera are regretting very much that she will be heard so seldom this season. She has sung three times before the Prince and Prin cess of Wales, besides fulfilling several private lucrative engagements. Melba's concert at the Queen's-hall was one of the events of the season; but, owing to her still weak state of health, she was ill afterwards with excitement. She hopes, in a year or eighteen months, to visit her native land. After July a big tour in England till October, afterwards proceed ing to America, and probably to South America arid then to Australia. The success of the Hamb...
Reviews [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 6 August 1897
(RetnetPtf* ? ♦ ? : We have been favored with a copy of the first num ber of the Australian Israelite, issued on Friday, June 30th, 1871. This was the first attempt at estab lishing the Jewish Press in Australia. It was pub lished weekly at the rate of 6d. per copy. Among the advertisements is the first subscription list of .£3213 13s. towards the New Svnagfogue, Sydney, letters from the pen of the late Rev. Moses Rentil, Rev. A. F. Ornstein, and the Rev. A. B. Davis. The Israelite had not the pretension as to size and quantity of matter contained in our usual issue, yet, we grieve that it was not destined for a better fate. To the Jewish Chronicle, London, and the Jewish Voice, we again acknowledge our indebtedness. The Junior Knox Scholarship, at the Sydney Grammar School, was gained, at the recent examinations, by Master Lionel Cohen, eldest son of Mr. M. A. Cohen, M.A., head- teacher of the Sydney Hebrew Schools. Master Cohen is only 13J- years of age, and is the holder of the A...

AN EXCERPT. To the Editor of The Hebrew Standard. Sir, — , . . . . Let me congratulate you on the position you so boldly occupy. May you meet with every possible success in your undertaking. . I was going to cut out the printed order form to fill in for my subscription, when I found it would spoil the very interesting reading on the other side. I therefore simply enclose herewith my half-guinea, and ask you to enrol me as a subscriber. I shall endeavour to. get you others among my friends ? On Monday I attended the Grand Royal Arch Chapter to assist at the installation of our Governor, Lord Bras sey, as Most Eminent First Principal. As only Past or Present Principals could be present, the Chapter was not crowded. Still it was a grand and impressive ceremony ? Again let me assure you of the deep interest I feel in your welfare ? I have lost or mislaid the first number of the Standard. Can you send me a duplicate ? ? St. Kilda, Melbourne, Aug. 2, 1897.
A NEW ANTI-SEMITIC MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 6 August 1897
A NEW ANTI-SEMITIC MOVEMENT. Algeria has now an anti-Semitic movement - of its own. The anti Jewish League of Con-, stantine, the chief province of Algeria, held a meeting on the 6th June, and arranged to hold another on the 16th, the anniversary of the death of the notorious Marquis de Mores. One would have thought that, in a province where the Europeans are outnumbered in the propor tion of twelve to one by a population of African birth and Mussulman religion, French colonists would be wise enough not to proclaim their adhesion to a movement of which the professed object is to save French institutions from being ' de-Aranyised,' and ' de Christianised. How ever, Algerian anti-Semitism presents the characteristics rather of an election campaign than of a crusade. Now, the Jews of Algeria number nearly 50,000, while the French popu lation amounts to less than 800,000. The Jews have since 1865 had the option of becoming full French citizens, with the same rights as are enjoyed by bor...

THE JEWS IN GREECE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 6 August 1897
THE JEWS IN GREECE. The situation of the Jews in Greece is fair from^ encouraging. Our correspondents, while praising the bravery of the Jewish soldiers,, have dealt mainly with the distress occasioned among the Jewish communities by the war, a- state of affairs serious enough in its way, yet not such as to cause any alarm for the future of the Jews. But Mr. F. D. Mocatta, who is usually well-informed on all matters connected witn tne Jiast, touched at the Council meeting of the Anglo-Jewish Association on a more grave aspect of the question — the political. To state briefly the position, there is no actual, danger, only menace. But it is impossible to:- foretell to what acts an excitable people like th& Greeks may stoop when confronted by a Treaty* which must undoubtedly, however, considerate. the Powers may be, there is, judging from paste experience elsewhere, reason to fear that the innocent will suffer, and the Greeks Jews, com paratively a handful, are certainly innoce...
