A WEEKLY NEWSPAPER FOR THE JEWISH HOME COLUMBUS, OHIO, DECEMBER 4, 1925 Per Year $3.00; Per Copy 10c tionate to "Other Allocations A UNITED JEWRY TO HELP THE 2 BIG DRIVES NEW YORK. —Following the an¬ nouncement of the Joint Distribution Committee of a tentative budget for its fifteen million dollar Overseas Chest, the American Jewrish Congress, whose resolution adpptcd at the recent Congress session in Philadelphia called upon the leaders of the Joint Distribution issue a btfdgctary statement making clear the amount it intends to expend for the continuation and reasonable extension of land settlement in Russia, together with the other proposed allocation of funds to be raised", expressed satis¬ faction with the action of the J. D. C in limiting the amount to be expended in agricultural settlement in Russia and in including Palestine in the budget. The attitude, <„^*I'V American Jewish Congress .is c<til)odied in a statement is- sued|by Hon. Carl Sherman, Chair¬ man of the Administrative Committee of the American Jewish Congress, which is as follows: ^;.., "The American Jewish Congress deeply gratified at the action of the Joint Distribution Committee in announcing tentative budgetary allocations of the proposed $15,000,000.00 to he raised for its Overseas Chest. "By specifically limiting to four and a half million dollars for a three-year period, the' amount to be expended in agricultural and reconstructive work in Russia, the Joint Distribution Commit¬ tee meets our previous suggestion that this phase of the relief effort should not be out of proportion to other relief work througHout Eastern and Central Europe. We are also gratified tliat fur¬ ther relief measures in Russia, Poland, Palestine, Roumania and elsewhere are definitely provided for. "The allotment of one and a half mil¬ lion dollars for investment in the Pales¬ tine Economic Corporation clearly rec¬ ognizes the paramount importance of assisting in the JEconomic upbuilding of Palestine, at this. time. "Having striven for a definite under¬ standing that there be no departure from Palestine into a new field of land upbuilding, we believe that a clarifica¬ tion toward this end has now been largely accomplished, and that a United American Jewry will generously sup¬ port both the United Jewish Campaign and the United Palestine appeal." Noted Zionist Leader Urges Fuiid to Assist The Christian Refugees Sokolow Urges Unanimity for Suc¬ cessful Conduct of Palestine and Relief Campaigns When Will Messiah Come? By RABBI LEE J. LEVINGER, Ph. D. Regular Weekly Luncheons Of The Excelsior Club Excelsior Club members are urged to attend the regular weekly luncheons of the club on Wednesdays at 12 o'clock. These luncheons have been very satis¬ factory to all. The food has been ex¬ ceptionally good and the service ex¬ cellent. The Bliss Hotel on South High Street is the place where the luncheons are held. Three Well Known Speakers , At Brotherhood Dinner Bishop James J. Hartley, Dr. Mclyar Hamilton Lichliter, and Rabbi Jacob Tarshish will be the speakers at the next big dinner of the Bryden Road Temple Brotherhood which will take place at the Southern Hotel, Tuesday evening, January 12. All members are urged to set this date aside for this auspicious occasion, A rare treat is in store for all of you. MENORAH MEETING TO TAKE PLACE SUNDAY Ludwig Lewisohn's "Concept of Free¬ dom" will be the subject for discussion at the Ohio State University Menorah Meeting, Sunday afternoon, December 6, at S:00 o'clock at the Hillel Founda¬ tion. Mr. Notely S. Maddox will lead the discussion. Mr. Maddox was formerly secretary of the College of Education and is now instructing in that department. He is one of the few individualists; he has that peculiar combination of intellect, and thoroughness, and yet there is nothing of the pedant about him. As a speaker, he has a charming personality, and will certainly contribute something worth¬ while. ,A musical program will follow the meeting.' Those who have as yet not paid their dues will kindly arrange to do 10 at this meeting. NEW YORK.—"The uprising in Syrid will not affect the situation in Pales- dcclared Nahum Sokolow, chair- of the Zionist Executive, on hii arrival in the United States to attend the Baltimore conference, in an inter¬ view with the representative of the Jew¬ ish Telegraphic Agency. "These events throw light on the im¬ portance of the Jewish homeland in Palestine for the peace of the world. The contrast between Palestine and the rest of the Near East is evidenced in a situation where Palestine becomes the refuge for those who are afraid to re¬ main in Syria. It would be very de¬ sirable if a special Jewish fund -for the assistance of the Syrian refugees in Palestine were created. Such a fund would have a calming and beneficial effect upon the neighbors of the Jewish national home. The element which seeks refuge in Palestine consists mainly of Christian Arabs," Mr. Sokolow stated, declaring that he will endeavor to col¬ lect money to assist the refugees. Asked his opinion concerning the United Jewish Campaign and the United Palestine Funds Appeal, the issue of the Jewish colonization work in Rus; which^ was a matter of discussion American Jewish circles, Mr. Sokolow stated: 'The Jewish colonization work sia is merely an incident in Jewish re¬ lief work, while the work in Palestine is an ideal. No Jew would ever dream of saying 'L'shanah. H'baha B'Crimea,' but he does say 'L'shanah Ha'baha B'Ji rusalem.' "The Zionists are always glad to know when Jews in any country engage in ag¬ riculture. This type of Jew is always the best material for later helping Palestine. Such was the case of the Jews in Argentine, and so will be the other countries where Jews will become agricultural workers. "The Jews of Russia deserve special attention in the relief work because, in¬ former days they gave freely to all Jew¬ ish causes and supported Judaism. Now, rhen they are stricken, they must be helped. a man of peace and would like to see the $15,000,000 United Jewish Campaign and the $5,000,000 United Palestine Campaign carried through without conflict. No one caa say that American Jews have invented the Crimea colonization plan in order to harm Zion¬ ism as, regrettably, some think. I have no doubt that Mr. Louis Marshall, Mr. Felix M. Warburg and the other leaders of the United Jewish Campaign mean well and do not want to harm the Pales¬ tine work. I must observe, however, that should it become necessary to defend the interests of Palestine, should these in¬ terests be attacked, intentionally intentionally, it will naturally be my duty to defend the Palestine work against any obstacles which might be encountered from any side. I believe that both cam¬ paigns are of great importance and both deserve our whole-hearted devotion. Asked for his opinion on the last statement of the Joint Distribution Com. mittee, including the allocation of $1,- 500,000 for the Palestine Development Corporation, Mr. Sokolow, while re¬ fraining from expressing a definite opinion on the situation, indicated that the sum of $1,500,000 was small in re¬ lation to the need and the program of the work in Palestine. Wc all look forward to a Messianic ;e, a time of which the prophets spoke long ago. We live in the faith that me day ijeacc and justice will reign 1 earth; that every man will live con¬ tent beneath his vine and his fig tree, with none to make him afraid. We long •a when the knowledge of God r the earth, as the waters cover the sea. If we had not this faith, how could e live at all? How else could we face this imperfect, ren terrible world? So many dying of poverty, so many wounded in war, many living all their days in igno¬ rance, in preventable disease, in every kind of sorrow-;-how can such a world be endured at all without the faith in a better world to come? Why reform, why educate, why preach religion, why practice morality, except for the hope, the certainty in our hearts, that there will fruit for all our efforts, an end to all our horrors? But the world has already waited long for the deliverer. Isaiah proclaimed him twenty-six hun¬ dred years ago. Jesus lived and died nineteen hundred years ago. Others have arisen, prophets true and false,' even Messiahs true and false, according to the estimation of their own age. Still', exist the evils of society—war, crime, ignorance, vice. If religion were practiced for a single generation, these would all be gone. If religion were universally practiced for a single day, these would stand out in all their hide- ousness and all their preventability. Standing oUt in the clear light of day, they would be attacked and cuted within the life of men now living. The days of the Messiah will come when men really see these evils as they ished,and the children grow up weak and sickly, and the women grow old from overwork and unsanitary living conditions twenty years sooner than the women reared in prosperous homes. Tliat is the kind of poverty which actu¬ ally exists among millions in the United States, the richest nation in the world, more bitter, and far more com- it is in every other continent, espe¬ cially in the parts of Europe where the World War levied its severest toll. There is enough food in the world 3w to feed every child. There could be much more food than today, if far¬ mers were not afraid, of lower prices and planted their utmost, if transporta¬ tion routes were arranged to avoid' waste but to get food as quickly as possible to the place where it is needed, if every nation was allowed access to raw terials and trade routes—if cooperation succeeded competition. Many peopk must do rough work, now poorly paid; but none should be-so poorly paid that he and" his children have not enough to eat. If we saw poverty as it is—its horror, its unnecessary character, the fact that it is preventable—we would never suffer it to continue another generation; we would take some steps to overcome it within the year. If religion faced vice as it is—not in separate social clashes, so that the church people and the criminal classes have only a rumor of one another—but really saw its ugliness, and how often it is the product of circumstances, and so can be prevented— vice and crime would be attacked in their causes and abolished, too. TICKETS FOR T. I. DANCE CAN BE SECURED AT THE. "LITTLE HUNGARY" Mr. Samuel Hcpps, pro¬ prietor of the Original Little Hungary Restaurant, 16 East Spring Street, has been kind enough to assist the Tifereth Israel Sisterhood in the sale of tickets for its big dance at the Neil House, Tuesday evening, December 15. All Chronicle readers who have as yet not purchased their tickets can do so at the Little Hungary Restaurant. A most pleasant evening' is assured for all who will attend. Eddie Mitchell and his famous twelve piece orchestra wiH furnish the music. Reserve this evening for the T. I. Sisterhood dance. Council President Sets Example of Generosity at Last Meeting of Board Miss Rose Brenner Contributes $1,000 to Launch Larger Program of the Organization for the Coming Year Consider poverty: it is preventable, un¬ necessary, and a third of the people of America suffer from it. I mean grind¬ ing poverty, so that the bread-winner of the family is habitually undernouf- Messiah will come when men arc ready for him, we are told. Men will be ready when they see the evils of the world honestly, fearlessly, .truly, for then they will attack them and make the world good enough for a Kingdom of God, for a habitation of Stephen S.

D. is probably the most widely heard the United States. From a moderate sized Y. M. C .A. in Brooklyn, his word; carry every Sunday afternoon to i probable audience of a million people. The secret of his popularity lies in both his brilliance as an interpreter of life the average American and in his truly marvelous capacity for friendship. Men come up and speak to S. Parkes Cadman on the New York subway with some¬ thing like the frequency with which the middlewest pastor is hailed on the streets of his own community. Some one has remarked that he leaves a wake, of friendliness behind him. Dr. Cadman has been for a year now the President of the Federated Council of the Churches of Christ in America, the national organization in which some twenty millions of American Protestants e affiliated.

Not long ago 2,000 people gathered at the Hotel Astor in a testimonial dinner in appreciation of Dr. Cadman's unique service to his fellows. His message is heard and appreciated by men of all faiths and groups because of his Ameri¬ can Spirit of tolerance and his wide humanity. The personnel of the Joint Committee is as follows: Rev. Richard E. Shields, chairman; Fred W, Freeman, Edward J. Goodman, James A. White, Alfred J. Kobacker, Rev. T. W. Fessenden, A. T. Arnold, Max H, Rieser, Max H. Har¬ mon, Mrs. Jerome Kohn, Dr. S. D.

Being that the work carried on by this splendid committee is so worthwhile each woman should feel it her duty to do her bit. NEW YORK CITY.—At the closing session of the annual meeting of Board of Managers, of the National Council of Jewish Women, which was held at The Commodore in this city, M Brenner of Brooklyn, N. Y., President of ' the National Council of Jewish Women, announced her contribution of $1,000.00 toward the new budget of $102,1 450.00 adopted for the coming year, for the national and international activities f her organization. Other gifts an¬ nounced at this meeting were $1,000 by Mr. Albert D. Lasker of Chicago; $500 [by Miss Fiorina Lasker of New York City, National Chairman of the Council's Department of Immigrant Aid; and $300 by Mrs. Bert H. Printz of Youngst( Ohio, a national Director and president f the Ohio and West Virginia Confer¬ ence of Council Sections. Miss Brenner, in announcing the adop- )n of the new budget, declared that the National Council of Jewish Women was gladly paying the price for having so efficiently discharged its obligations to Jewish womanhood. "The policy of the National Council of Jewish Women," added Miss Bren¬ ner, "is summed up for me in the fol¬ lowing declaration that I had made, as president of this organization, at the first annual meeting following my elec¬ tion as president of the National Coun¬ cil: 'The Council concerns itself with the Jewish Woman in American, and on her way to America, in the city and the farm lands, in need of adjustment to her environment and capable of con¬ tributing to the enrichment of her en¬ vironment.' "It implies a program that places a large responsibility on the w our organization. Our increasmg bud¬ get, from year to year, reveals the de¬ gree to which we have awakened to our duty, and the growing efficiency of o\ service in our eighteen fields.' It pn claims the triumph of our ideals to have attained the comprehensive organization and expansion of our work that the ap¬ propriations for the coming year make possible." Miss Brenner concluded her me«afie with the statement that in th>* Depart¬ ment of Immigrant Aid, the increase in its work, even with a lessened immi¬ gration, resulted from its tremendous in¬ ternational case work. During the past year, 1,500 international cases received its attention and over 1,000 lette-s of inquiry were received from abroad, from families seeking lost relatives or desiring information on immigration problems. Special provision was n*ade in the budget for the increasing needs of every department of the Council's organiza¬ tion. Jewish Mothers of New York to Work for Religious Education City-Wide Organization of Jew¬ ish Mothers Announced at Annual Meeting of Jewish Education Association WORK OF RELIGIOUS SCHOOLS EXPANDING NEW YORK.—A city-wide orgahiza- tion of Jewish Mothers, for the pur¬ pose of fostering Jewish religion edu- I, and thus insuring the civic and religious welfare of the coming genera¬ tion of New York Jewry, was launched the annual meeting of the Jewish Education Association, which was held yesterday at the Hotel Astor. The fact that only one'child out of every six is receiving any Jewish re¬ ligious instruction whatsoever, was pointed out repeatedly by the speakers, and an appeal was made to the mothers of today, to take upon' themselves the. task of eliminating the grave danger of having their children grow up with¬ out any religious or spiritual back¬ ground. The Mothers' Organization will be an auxiliary force to the Jewish Educa¬ tion Association, which aims to advance the cause of Jewish religious learning in this city. From the reports submitted by the officers of the Jewish Education Associa¬ tion, which has its headquarters at 70 Fifth Avenue, it appeared that due to its labors, the registration at the Jew- -eligious schools has increased by 15,000; that in the course of the past year an additional 70,000i unschooled children have been reached at special" meetings, and urged to register in the schools of their various localities, and that the Association paid the tuition fees of all those children whose parents were unable to pay. Mr. Israel Unterberg, the President of the Association, reviewing the work for the past year, emphasized the fact that the community has been making larger and larger demands upon the services of the Jewish Education Association, and that its leaders are trying hard to meet these demands, Mr. Bernard Semel, the Chairman of the Standing Committee on Publicity and Propaganda, reported the coopera¬ tion which the Jewish Education As¬ sociation has received from the press and the pulpit. Jewish religious educa¬ tion, he pointed out, is essentially a com¬ munity problem, and cannot be solved by philanthropic methods. "There is only one way in which to solve this problem," said Mr. Semel, "and that is to impress every mother ' and • father - in Israel with the 'necessity of sending their children to a Jewish religious school, and in order, to reach the fathers and mothers in Israel, the cooperation of the press and the pulpit is inevitable. Once the parents are anxious that their children should receive the spiritual training which is so necessary for their future happiness, they will provide the necessary means for this purpose." An outline of the campaign to raisn funds for the Jewish Education Associa¬ tion was rendered by Mr. Joe Leblang, (Continued on page 4) Agudath Achim Auxiliary To Sponsor Card Party JOS.
