A isisbi1 whim old fashioned Judaism did not know anything about jubilees. My most diligent records fail to disclose that previous to the eighteenth Century the Seventieth or Eightieth birthday of a prominent rabbi or communal Leader or a Twenty fifth or a fiftieth anniversary of holding office or a Centenary of the founding of a congregation was celebrated. There must be a reason for it. It might be said that historic sentiment was not developed. Find the Best proof for this fact in literature. 1 we have before the eighteenth Century not a single biography. A the oldest attempt at autobiographical a notes or. Memoirs can not be traced Back farther than the sixteenth or seventeenth Century. Naturally we have to exclude Josephus who presents an entirely different development mfg which by the dest noftion of lira la a Nat lows Independence up Piglet Ely changed. It might also mid that the he of the Jap was so sad that he could not enjoy himself by in fusing backwards to accomplishments in the past. This while not incorrect would hardly suffice to explain of a a dict. The sadder life is the More people need a Little cheer we can Point to the fact that purim in the ghetto was an of cast of Point to the Celebration up ii ration with the completion of a study coup. Old talmud editions have at the end of every treatise the Hadron lakh we a Hall Rete % thee. It meant that the student who had finished that treatise did not expect that his interest from now on had ceased. He woul Etui Palm same study in the future in Para Cna Tomary on such occasions to a Siebrase the event with a banquet at which Quot words of the torah were spoken. And in Italy where poetry was at Home All the time such spoons were celebrated with a hymn written for the occasion it is a a at be went in human mind to a Joy an i Ujj nil ashment. May i ask top Impi Quot privilege for myself and i Reader to celebrate a a Psi Yum with me when i was engaged in editorial work for the end Rao Pedia i began to rearrange and ftps Tript i had formerly taken in pm a up my Reading and for diff a Jef purposes act a adj a Ujj. To alphabet i order taught to How diff Ftp it was to find the material a i Gilrai subject in books the titles of which did not give exactly a hint to their contents and in Case of a biography of Mii a importance to search for Ali Pitts was like looking for the proverbial Needle in the Haystack. I therefore began to rearrange my notes on cards place Mim alphabetical order and to continue to tabulate in the same Way the Ipi ult of my study. In this Way i have accumulated fifty thousand entries and having completed them i Felt like celebrating a Siyoum which is done now. The Easi tet land at the a same time most important part of the work in the collection of his top a Wwlma is that of biographies. It is easy because it is natural to arrange this material in alphabetical order. The work on the jew lbs encyclopedia began in 1899 and ended in 1906. The material in the first volume is therefore seventeen years old while the latest a volume closed almost twelve years ago. During Toshh naturally a number of people have come to e a who i were unknown before i others whose names Are included in the work have died. And others again have accomplished something of sufficient importance to get added to their biographies 1 and pm Fly As the work presents a Pioneer Enterprise Many names of importance were Overlow feed. The Reader an idea of the importance of additions some names he a be promiscuously 7 it eth no desire to attain completeness. Amongst important a biographies omit Ftp. Are a a a e following Tes devoted i Vorker for Jingle tax a Man of Vernati Iba i Fame who dle4 Bree years ago is a not 1 included. Abraham flex Nefi the prominent Edu Cator and expert on education in the Rockefeller Institute is missing while the name of his brother Simon is included. Edwin Montagu who enjoys the rare distinction of being one of the three jews who were members of the British Cabinet Rufus Isaacs also at one time member of the British Cabinet and now lord chief Justice of England and member of the House of lords Are also missing. The same Fate befell Jacob Moser lord mayor of Bradford a prominent and generous worker for the zionist cause and founder of the gymnasium a at Jaffa. Arthur Myers mayor of Bah Carat for three sessions members of the australian parliament and minister might have a been included. Henry Morgenthau and Abraham Elcus both United states ministers to Turkey certainly deserves a place in jewish biography just As Moses Alexander the first jewish governor in the United states and Simon Bamberger governor of Utah. Of americans distinguished in literature Mary Antin Montagu Glass the creator of Potash and Perlmutter a and Scha Lom Asch yiddish dramatist probably the first yiddish author whose plays were presented on the German stage have an equal right to recognition. Of commercial workers a Man like Julius Rosenwald whose generosity is a Factor in All jewish activities would in vain be sought in our Standard Well Yff m i it a ? 1 a a i 7? a a Quot in # Yvo a a a i a w a a a Tok a. I. A a a a a Ludovico Mortara chief Justice of Italy is the son of rabbi Marco Mortara whose name is in the encyclopedia but he is a by mentioned. Of German authors a Man like Hugo von Hoffman Sthal great grandson of the ennobled banker Isaac Loew von Hoffman Sthal whose name is in the encyclopedia is not mentioned although he ought not to have lost his claim through his conversion to christianity. Arthur Schnitzler belongs to us not merely by his birth and As the son of an illustrious father but also by some of his works that Deal brilliantly with jewish subjects. The same May be said of Henri Bernstein the author of the drama a Israel a a refutation of the Antisemitic play a ale Retour de Jerusalem a by Donnay who had his share of Antisemitic hostilities. France has another historic name in Henri Bergson the first jew to enter the Academy whose father a Man of hardly first rate standing As a musician has his place in this work. Roumania has one jewish dramatist of National fast a in roman Bonetti perhaps the first jew to attain recognition As a romanian classic. Among the German poets dealing with jewish subjects and recognized As a Man of first class standing by the inclusion of his picture in Kuerschner so a later amur Kalender a is Jacob Wasser Mann. Heinrich conried one of the worlds leading theatrical managers deserves undoubtedly a place among jewish celebrities. It is rather strange that Emil Rathenau was overlooked while his son Walter found a place. It is absolutely impossible to agree fully on what constitutes the claim to the perpetuation of a Many a memory. It is certain however that biographies of men of secondary importance have a greater value for the seeker for information in a work of special reference. It would be easy for instance to obtain information on Paul Ehrlich or on Stein Schneider and Bacher whose names occur in the encyclopedia and who have since died. General books of reference would in such cases give us information but it would be difficult to obtain such of a top a a eople in whom we take interest As specialists and therefore a jewish encyclopedia ought Tjw Inake rat hip her Ance for such seekers after information who might Chance upon a popular Book like Fanny Neudak so Stunden Der Andacht a a seeing the twentieth edition published in 1906. A Brief article informing the Reader that Fanny Neuda was the daughter of rabbi Judah Schmiedl and sister of rabbi Abraham Schmiedl of Vienna married rabbi Abraham Neuda of Loschitza whose name is Given in the jewish encyclopedia and died at me ran March 6, 1894, at of seventy five. The same privilege i would claim for such men As Aaron Marcus a most remarkable character a native of Hamburg who became a Hassid wrote on hasidism in German and hebrew dressed As a polish jew and wrote valuable biographies of Wunder Rabis. Moses Brau Schweiger wrote books of rather mediocre value on jewish history but one of them was honoured with a second edition a rather unusual fact in jewish literature and a Reader might desire information on the author. The same is True of Bernhard Hiemlich rabbi of Nuremberg not a prolific writer but a a contributor to our a historic literature. Nathan Ehrenfeld chief rabbi of Prague was not a Man of High attainments but held a prominent office. Liezer Gordon founded the yesh Ibah of Tel Zhi government of Kovno and it is quite that with changes imminent in the condition of jewish life of Eastern Europe he May hold a prominent position in history As one of the last types of that interprets ton of Judaism which stood for strict to Hudic Observance and ? exclusively jewish education. A Isaac in. Funk while a Christian has a a a claim a on recognition As the head of the pub Lith Teg House which made the jewish encyclopedia possible. Hyacinth Loy son the Liberal Catholic priest who severed his connection with Rome and was an ardent advocate of Justice to Israel deserves to be remembered by the Side of other friends of Israel Mke Ruchlin i and Delitzsch. A a similarly a. W. C. Carl Iyoub Frt the convert to Judaism takes f his place by wit Side of our a Herder cres son. I for the same reason although from a different viewpoint we Are interested in Theodor Kohn the son h in Thor who became my ibis up of and the head fit one i the wealthiest dioceses of a fish Olic , he suggests the name of Ignaz licht Engeln an emf those Dox Tefan Gife rabhfc1 who Becali a Christiabe and a White As ,1pi d>li8heitmissonartefb ates. A next to him is Jacobi Stern a native of Wuertemburg in his youth an enthusiastic orthodox who went to Pressburg to study at the yesh Ibah because in Wuertemburg he found the conditions 1 not jewish j enough and subsequently became a al Radical reformer and in the end a free thinker and minister of a free thought organization i i might go on almost indefinitely in quoting such names. Nobody will deny that Damson Wiener senator of Belgium is on account of his position entitled to a place in a work of a jewish biography. It was in my opinion at least from an american Point of View a grave omission that the name of Bernhard Bettmann a Veteran communal worker in Judaism a Man of High standing m Public life and a German poet of Merit was overlooked. Of a besides these new biographies i a great number of biographical data bearing on articles included will have to be added. Among those who have died since la Fitl names were included in the jewish encyclopedia. Are the hebrew and yiddish authors Schalom Rabbinowitz Sholem Aleichem Ger son Rosenzweig f Moses Loeb Lilien Blum Lazar Gruenhut j. M. Pines i. B. Frumkin Judah Loeb Cantor Wolf Schur and Solomon Rubin. Next to them should be mentioned authors on Judaism As a Joseph Hotzner Emanuel Baumgarten Leo Herzberg Fraenkel Marcus Zerovitz Christian David. Ginsberg and Isaac l. Perez. Other men of High standing in strictly jewish literature Are Adolph Neu Bauer Daniel Cholson Meyer Kay Serling and Abraham Berliner. One surely ought not to Overlook Quot Man were living. In 1866 the first services were held and a a benevolent society for the purpose Ign of maintaining a cemetery was organized. This collection of material naturally should include All important events in the life of older so i noted that in Erie pa., an fir Phan Asylum was opened july 4, 1912, or that in Massachusetts a Law was passed april 27, 1911, allowing Kosher meat to be sold of of still greater importance is the collection of material chronologically arranged for the various countries. The article on Russia Long As it is is incomplete because it does not include the sad history since 1904. I have hundreds of notes on the development of jewish life that As far As i can see will remain a of permanent historic value. It May not be possible for a future historian to record in detail that a Law lot a november 11, 1905, added a fund Perlof villages to the Pale of settlement or that the Senate declared november 23, 1907, that the jews of the first Guild Are not permitted to live in another City outside of the a Pale except the one for which they registered j or that the minister of the Interior 25, 1911, that jews a can not be share hold Enterprise which Reship of ref estate Ever be he cupful to give a summary of the conditions As.

As a Cor made about it afterwards at the Zion Section of particular interest As a tat Congress when sir Francis Mon specimen of uncertainty in historic Testore an elder of this congregation sources i would like to quote the was hissed off the platform.

Great rejoicing prevailed especially in London but e. Alec Wolf who knows Spain into Clergyman condemn8 revivals. Of his Seventieth birthday in 1906, the title of privy councillor and the Freedom of the City mately warned against optimism. Another easy and important department in the collection of historic material is that which can be arranged under topographical Heads. Just As in biography i can classify biographical works on Isaac Wise David Einhorn Samuel Hirsch Ludwig Philippson Samson a Hirsch and Abraham Geiger that appeared on the occasion of centenaries i can classify the Book of Eusebius Vassel on the Polk literature of the tunisian jews under Quot Tunis a or w. Millers a the ottoman Empire a which contains notes on the history of the turkish jews under Turkey and Lilian Waldo so the House on Henry Street a dealing with the jewish Section of new York under a new i can also notice scattered facts that were not included in encyclopedia articles under the specific Heads. When i read for instance in the recently published minutes of the old portuguese congregation of Hamburg that in 1652 an appropriation was voted for the Ransom of jewish prisoners held in Malta and that in 1915, 160 jewish prisoners of War were in that Island these facts can easily be classified so As to be Handy to a future writer on the subject who could Tell us from these sources that i have noted that during the Middle Ages the Island of Malta had a considerable jewish population which had to leave when the jews were expelled from the kingdom of Sicily. Under the Dominion of the knights of St. John jews were not permitted to live there hut in a a a fashion that has become modern a they were taken off turkish ships that were captured and held in the Island for Ransom. After the Island was taken into British Jagt Osse Ssofi jews settled there lately the population declined to about sixty souls. The present War has added to the population the internment of jeep put prisoners of War. A a of great importance is also the collection of notes on american jewish congregations which now can al fit to be done with fair accuracy a a from old it periodical i to alced instance that in a chattel Sooga a Enaz up to the end of pm Jef Irish Yamil is Rev. E. A. Jenkins now of Philadelphia special representative of evangelist Henry w.

Of whatever kingdom Billingsgate May be the language it is not of the court whose speech Isaiah had heard when he saw the lord Fitt Ting upon a Chrone High and lifted up. Quot the Church of to Day is through its human Agency callings evil gom and Good evil and has put darkness for Light and Light for darkness in consenting to Tefte Nacle trading in the commercial value of a soul or souls and enthusiasm so generated and perpetuated regardless of 3 professional a Ford signing and numbers Sot converts is but a superficial work that in leading the Church 1n�� a an1 plunge into the very Valley of the of death. # h a Denun Chatory language is the easiest that can come from mortal lips and frequently is marked by Little dip Crim nation. One who seeks to show Ifim Elf approved of god a Workman that need eth not to be ashamed will be careful that while he does not fail to 1 rebuke a sin As did our amp lord be will speak the truth in Tove. I a the 1 minister or the a evangelist whose lips Are not clean has not yet received his Ommie oni or has lost h i a Charles Lamb once said Offe the plays of Shakespeare that he wished he could a forget them and read them p every Lover of the Bible has had this feeling about its stories. The cure for such a sense of deadening familiarity is not forgetfulness but a Mere penetrating intimacy the Best Way to Clear the mind of faded surface notions of the Book of Esther is to read and reread the Book itself without commentary or interpretation. From an old world Story Rich in color and setting but f far away and unreal it becomes under this scrutiny the most vivid the most human the most modern Story Ever told of a a to fief m and the telling too is the most perfect in literature. A the terse significance of the last clause of chapter three is beyond the ability of even a Stevenson and not one of Maeterlinck s i most exquisite descriptions cab equal the a Beauty of the scene when Esther % approaches the King. There is not a wasted touch not a a false line not an unnecessary stroke but Complete unconscious perfect Mastery of the oldest and most appealing Art in the world the Art of Story telling. If a Story were published to Morrow equal in human interest and in restraint purity and strength of style to this Book of Long ago its author would find f Fame greater than Kipling a waiting for him. J when a Marlowe Speaks of Helen of Troy he knows better than to describe her features. Instead of her Beauty he Speaks of its Power of a the face that launched a thou 3 \ v Sand ships and burned the topless towers of a ilium. And modern novel writer takes pages to describe his heroine and wearied the Reader for his quest for adjectives. The writer of this perfect Story says quite simply a the Maiden was fair and Beautiful. ,. And Esther obtained favor in the sight of cd of them that looked upon when her life hangs in the balance and the Fate of her people depends on her Beauty a it was so. That she obtained favor in his sight a the King so and the Power of her physical Beauty was ubed not to launch battleships to set nations at War but to save and renew. To Day Tetmeir of Troy is a myth and Cleopatra for whom Kings fought of is a name of scorn but All Over toe world each year the jews of the dispersion still keep the feat of remembering the time when by a girls courage and sacrifice the life of their nation was turned a from f sorrow i to gladness and from mourning into a Good �0�?~c if-i�5 a on the surface it might seem that Esther a courage was momentary fitful the one great act in a life otherwise without self direction or inner strength. It is True As Many stories of heroism Bear witness that weak natures can tons Rise under sudden compulsion to unexpected Heights so redeeming their feebleness but Esther a sacrifice was not of this kind. Her courage was deliberate. For three Days night and Day she faced the alternative of loyalty to her people at the possible Cost of her own life and of disowning them and keeping her place As a the Kings favorite. She might easily have disregarded mor Decair a message of warning and have risked the discovery of her race counting on her Power Over the sensuous King. She knew quite Well that he loved her a above All the her hesitation was not due to cowardice. The physical fear of death is a natural human instinct but there Are higher things than instincts and thousands of girls in martyrdom have faced death with a song. A a she hesitated simply As a sensible person would have hesitated in a situation so perplexing and with so much at stake. The Wisest would have found it hard to see the right course and would have thought Long and h she blundered she would save neither her people nor herself. Here she was a girl alone in the Palace Cut off from her own people and from All Wise counsellors. She was a captive in a strange land even though the Captivity had lasted for generations but her spirit was the spirit of a race that my Pite Kihnly s Falth in Captivity than it had in Freedom. The first test of her courage had come when the agents of the King were seeking All Over the kingdom for Beautiful Young girls to fill the Royal harem. We Are not told whether Mordecai had any Choice in her going to the Palace. 1 that he was anxious about her after she was there is evident from his walking a every Day before the court of the a women a House to know How Esther did and what had become of we know Only that a it came to pass wheat the Kings commandment and his decree was heard and when it Maidens were gathered together. That was taken Quot into . Us Jfe a it we i can be so a Ehn a it Quot % a it Quot i j in a i fun j v a 7. To 7-.-7. A in m., a. A i t a a a i it i a. A a a Esther herself had no Choice in this Entrance into slavery. Even a persian girl would have feared the ungovernable temper of King Ahasuerus. So a is a a he had commanded Vashti to do a thing that would have outraged the instincts of any Oriental woman and when she refused with a digit al for which All women must Honor her she was East Oitt to be a warning Aid an example of All wives Over Hipfl Perm by Tel Fth i was Ven of her a ate a per haps she was taken by some courtier. Perhaps she was a made a 3 Palace dredge that All the world might see her shame and women in Persia Here iftifobeieiiiusband8ohe Point of utter Fig relation. One can not but wonder whether the writer of the Story Oriental though he was was conscious of the ill Patti irony in the sentence a and make shall be published throughout All has Kingdo it for it is Greata the wives will give to their husbands Honor great and pm a certainly no right minded girl could have wished a fill Ashtin a Jas is. Esther a Hope that she a might he rejected is indicated by her unwilling left to take any special with her her turn came. Her courage was not born even of Ipi. Loneliness isolation in a the Palace. It was a thing of her whole life a i part of % the careful training that Mordecai he Glt ten he Ever since he had taken her into his own House to be up As his daughter. One commentator Speaks of her As i a essentially girlish and completely under the dominance of Mordecai. This is an utter misjudgment of her a character and the conditions of the Story if it Means that she was weak dependent helpless. It is True the narrative says a Esther did the commandment of As when she a up Rought up with it is Trae tip she no Liloni Jeffi 111 her own lot and yet trusted god As implicitly As Isaac when he was led to the land Moriah. But that she could obey my of decay s commands and keep the Faith he had her in the feted atmosphere of the harem is the strangest possible proof that she had strength and dignity i amp not Independence of character. She was shut away from the wholesome movement of the outside world r she saw but Little of the King and knew him More by Palace gossip than by her sown Contact him. She could a reach in Tei Lonte a messenger All the Jalois mind Espidol i that inevitably go with polygamy had been aimed at her from the moment she had been crowned. All the courtiers sought her Aid to gain i their ends. As Queen she was the storm Center of a Persia but through everything she kept her balance and her Faith. She could not see her people but she asked not for their advice but for a much safer form of help their Earnest United prayer. There is a pathetic hint of the Burden she is bearing and her weariness under it in her quiet words a so will i go. F a and if. J perish i j her lot was sacrifice As the lot of the highest life must always be but tact and knowledge of human nature Wenc with her self relinquishment. When the King had received her with marked favor holding out his scepter and calling her Esther a she was too Wise to make her request at once and publicly. A she knew that Good food would Complete her Power King.os0$s asked him to a banquet. Fortunately her education had included cookery As Well As read Tell and writing and the King was More infatuated than before. That she might be doubly sure she said nothing at the first banquet but waited until the second Day.

Some years ago a three americans were Riding through the i persian mountains on the Road that was once the Highway from Shushan to Reba Tana.
