In the to Tor ill Canada is Ter mined to furnish five Hundred thousand men which is a proportion of t its Able bodied ? citizens that it would seem hardly possible to get into the army through a Volunteer system. Yet this number of men is in a fair Way of being recruited without conscription and in spite of the fact that the French province of Quebec is about ninety seven thousand i men a Short of a its quota and though the City of Montreal through its Large a English speaking population succeeded in doing its share. Amp a a 1 we in the United states Are fortunate in that the language question has never been very a Ruji Belsome. We started right by recognizing no official language but English.

The doom of the Union of american hebrew congregations has a been decreed. As soon As it passes find Avo ably on zionism a will die. Up a is the verdict of a zionist Leader As published in a Baltimore paper. The recent convention Iff the Union was perfectly Calm in the presence of a Caco Phany of Seething rumbling whining roaring and other noises produced by pro f and Antl zionists. The Unten showed and really has very Little concern a with either. To be an audience to wrangling to be bombarded with political palaver to be a party Willy Nelly to a regiment of bushings suspicions and portentous looks is annoying. It is More so to be told that the position of Calm Sufferance of these intrusions is postponement of a the problem before the Union is the perpetuation of Judaism in America or at least such share of it As a has patiently and ably to # fit Many years. It cannot but feel that the quarrels Between pro and anti zionists has assumed the character go of coh to Fly Bittor control of prominence to various conventions conferences and congresses where jews gather for Council. The two zionist parties in America have insisted upon convicting All others on circumstantial suspicion. Whenever a word is uttered which either party May construe adversely their geysers begot to wheeze and then come noise and other Geyser accidents. A rejects the attitude of the real zionist with his refined idealism his Devotion to a Noble tradition and his appreciations of the Potency of the jewish life. The protagonists of this Ideal Are so frequently i quarrelsome phrase hucksters tuft Hunters and publicity Par Venus As to weary those whom they do not disgust. Between zionists an pro a and anti zionists there Are in a pfc a a Felon list is a person who wishes to Aid in re establishing a jewish state in Palestine. Re he desires to revive the use of hebrew As a living Tongue to begin where we once ended a definite National Ideal of service to humanity. He is pre eminently a Lov amp a of his Fellowman and of All jews. Non zionists believe in America As a great state with humanitarian ideals a share in whose destiny is a realization of jewish history. They also believe in America As a temperate social1 and political environment holding out feasible opportunities for the solution of a jewish As Well As other problems al he a believes hat he i can heartily participate in this american life with Honor to Ujj self and Benefit to his country. The pro zionist does not seem to want to live a Palestine unless it becomes Viera or Egypt does not propose to in a recent editorial item the rikhpppp1 tit the numerous statements of the objects which zionism seeks to accomplish Are As a Rule vague and. Often contradictory f it would tend very much to Clear the situation if the executive committee of the american zionists would adopt a definite succinct platform v defining zionism and setting Forth its purposes in such terms that their meaning can not be misunderstood of f this elicited a reply from the director of the publicity department of the zionist organisations Iff America and of the provisional zionist executive committee which reads As follows what zionism mxaws.? editor is Rakutt i sir a in answer to your statement that it would tend very much to Clear the situation if the executive committee of the american zionists would a adopt a definite succinct platform defining zionism and a setting Forth its purposes in such terms that their meaning can a not be misunderstood permit me to inform you that at the very first zionist Congress held in Bazel. Switzerland in August 1897, a platform was adopted a definite succinct platform defining zionism and setting Forth its purposes in such terhof Lobat their meaning can not be Suhl Prestood. He platform the aim of zionism is to create for the jewish people a publicly recognized and legally secured Home in Palestine. To realize this aim the Congress adopted the following a a 1. To promote through effective Means settlement of Palestine by jewish agriculturists artisans and tradesmen. K. Tip. Al to organize acid unify the whole jewish people by Means of local and general institutions suitable for the purpose and conforming with the Laws of the respective countries. 3. To strengthen and augment jewish self consciousness in the individual and in the communities. 4. To take the proper preliminary Steps toward securing concurrence of a Uto a pm Toto if so Tor As their assent May be necessary for the attaining of the zionist purpose. A this platform has been ratified at every successive Congress and by All of the federations of the entire world at All of their conventions. Whoever subscribes to this platform is a zionist of a Jpn Over does not subscribe to this platform in its entirety is not a zionist. A a of a a various groups of zionists having definite world outlooks have added to this platform such paragraphs As May be expressive of their particular Point of View. S the mis racists on the one hand have added a paragraph indicating their acceptance of the platform in a entirety and at Tito same time their Mirpo to uphold and develop the traditions and institutions in the jewish religion. The Poale Zion have accepted this platform but have added a paragraph expressing their participation in the economic Aims of socialism. X paragraphs Are binding Only upon those who Are members of the particular. Toto Zamb up Toom they i Are adopted but to it Tor Tot movement As a whole recognizes no or alteration of the Basic platform of the movement and does not recognize any person As a zionist who will not subscribe thereto. A s i Hope that your quest for a succinct comprehensive and unmistakable definition Iff a zionism has been satisfied and that you will not hereafter find it necessary to state As a fact that the numerous statements of the objects which zionism seeks to a comply Are vague and contradictory. A be assured Tito. Rwy to the a Worl flow no a other definite item zionism i ill i one Here Given ii pit be under stood that Westfi one Abs a fates to a. ,. A a a v to a superficial observer at least it would seem that there Are More than the usual proportion of strikes and lock outs _ in the trades where both the operatives and the employers Are largely jews and that they Are accompanied with exceptional turbulence. It is difficult to a determine which Side is at fault probably it is sometimes the one and sometimes the other an occasionally both. It is an unfortunate condition and it is still More unfortunate that the several attempts to improve it tar. By 1 a the department of Synagog and Sabbath school Extension of the Iio pm a rican my tag congregations has sent to each of the Temple sisterhood a pro Gran for the Celebration of the Isaac a Mayer Wise a Gorial Day on March 0. The program is to consist of the Reading of several chapters from the biography of Isaac m. Wise by judge Max b.

The Obser Vanee of the Wise memorial Day is becoming More general each year. The Seriak Jiff a Tiersie on the rights of belligerent nations at sea recall a phase of jewish history very Little known amongst the Large masses of our people. Don Joseph Nasi a prominent jewish financier and statesman who had fled from the inquisition and found a Refuge to Turkey where the Sultan appointed him Duke a Ila ii a a claim of $150,-000 thales against the government of France. Not being Able to collect it he obtained from the Sultan an order fir Antee ships Hafl a under French Flag which would arrive in the port of Alexandria and to confiscate one third of their cargo for the settlement 00o this was done in 1568. Don Joseph Nasi had entered into very Large business transactions both with the sultans Treasury and As exporter and importer with All euro Pean cou#hcla6 it is quite interesting to notice that during his life time he is called a the Noble and distinguished Prince a while after the death of Sultan Selim a he is re of tots to by the latter a successor my Jed do As a the jew Joseph at one time Duke of Naxos who has meantime it is the Story of the egyptian Joseph Over again. A a this thursday March 8, the 14th Day of adar is pm a a a the festival of deliverance of the jews of Persia from the murderous machinations of Ham an. The Day never had much of religions significance but it was and is rather a Holiday in the full sense of the term being Given Over to feasting merrymaking to masks and summeries and As enjoined in the Megillah the Bolt of Esther to remembering the poor the bestowing of Charity and to giving gifts to friends. Until a recent Date it was customary to cell brate the Day with a masque Ball but this custom has gone out of fashion with the decadence of the jewish social club. The Day is now largely fv6n Over to Dren and its Obs fan among Liberal jews has become neglected. The jewish carpenters Union of Cleveland attended a fair held for the Benefit of the european War sufferers and its Secretary paid fifty dollars As admission for the 500 members of the onion at the same time handing to the treasurer a Check of $500 in the name of the organization. facts Are Worth being remembered. They prove though they would no convince men of the Type of Captain Eltinge that the jew does not shun hard physical labor and that men who earn their bread in the sweat of their brow As jews have always something to spare for the needy and it can safely be said not merely for those of their own blood. It is also Safe to say that these men mostly if not exclusively of foreign birth. Do they actually present an element against a Fem legislation must guard the country have they a right to claim a share in the Progress which Cleveland made doubling the number of has inhabitants to Twenty years does Russia stand condemned before the forum of civilized humanity for using the whole machinery of the state in keeping such i a population artificially below the level of a decent human existence the Federal oort tra a fre churches of it Root in Ameris organization Are embraced about thirty religious bodies totalling nearly eighteen million communicants has just lib Jwal annual summary Mealing the gains during the last year in the Case of nearly All the denominations roman cd gree#j5i�sli<v Well As protestant and jewish. The statistics Are naturally interesting. The denomination Hai a a a a it greatest number of communicants is a a he roman Catholic As it is usually designated to distinguish to from i the Eastern bodies which Call themselves orthodox or by the names of the various countries in which they predominate. The roman Catholic cup is credited with 14,330,670 members but this includes men women and children. The next largest body Are the methodists with 7,608,284. Whether these Are actual members of the Church i or includes All members of their families is not Clear. A similarly the baptists with 6,634,132 come next the Christian scientists Are credited with 85,096, while the unitarians have Only the insignificant number of 71,-110.1 the jews Are credited with 148,-000, which is of course a Topi Westly wrong estimate even of Actipe members of jewish congregations.

According to the re port the increase of communicants year has been half of one a per cent nearly one half 6 j. I Early to february the National advisory Board of the Union of american hebrew congregations was a a a _. Quot a a a called upon to assist in defeating a Bill introduced into the Arizona state legislature bearing upon the Reading of the Bible in the Public schools. The Bill was particularly obnoxious because it sought to nullify a very Good Law in it the statute books of Arizona and because it Endeavor a to accomplish this under the Guise of a a very innocent amendment a the statute formerly read As follows a go Frany teacher who shall use any sectarian f or i denominational books or teach any sectarian doctrine for con a nyx a a la a it la Ilii religious exercises in his school or shall fail to comply with any of the provisions mentioned in this chapter shall be deemed guilty of unprofessional conduct and it shall be the a duty a of the proper to revoke his certificate or diploma. The amendment to this statute consisted of the following phrase to be added at the end Iff the statute h a provided that nothing a the. Act shall be construed to prohibit Reading from any Standard version of the Bible without comment or the repetition of the portions thereof without Ign. A if of al Ftp Fly f i the passage of this amendment would have frustrated the purpose Iff the original statute f rabbi Martin i Tiocka Iff pm paso Texas supervisor Iff District no. 44took Active interest in the Campaign to prevent the a pass a of this a til a Sture i to flip of a a we a to Bible in Tito Fipp a a schools including i the pamphlet is fun is the saving Grace of life. For toe lie of Quot Trainr 1 a fit a a a a Why religion at least sectarian religion has set its face against it it ought tossed a a to i ram i the Happy free sense of life As its Best achievement there is a heaviness in ritual and worship which is against the Grain of human nature and it would be a real Reform a return to first principles of if of j9� a religious Chance. It is not the fault of humor that it is outlawed by religion. It May be the fault of religion. Humor is one of the most efficient restoratives men have from the fatigue of the daily routine and it is very wrong to withhold it from them or As Church doctrine and conventional Church practice do it stigmatize and condemn it. As a matter of fact the crowding of the Heaters is a protest against them. Instead of outlawing fan it would be a Wiser policy and Juster to human nature and the healthy interests in the real life to let it have its natural Way. No human instinct is bad and Many a Good sound and innocent instinct has been driven into naughtiness like a boy who is teased and scolded incessantly. What a Welcome religion would have if Only it would be a Little More genial. There is enough sorrow and Moros eness and bitterness and All sorts of sad feelings and pathos in the world Why most we give men the same pathos and the same fearfulness when they ask for encouragement and uplift he will be the real reformer of our times who will bring the smile and the laugh into our temples and churches. He will bring Back to religion Many men to religion to themselves to Fellowship and to the love of life. If the fax of the theater is unclean he will insist that it be made clean and pure and if the the a a pop p4traral#s and the degradation of human nature then it too most be reformed not for the Sake of a a religion and abstract piety hut for the Sake of human natural fun which All men need and All men should get. There Are those who consider a laugh. In the Church sacrilegious they think Sanctity is a condition in which a Man stops to be human. The fact is that a Man has a a Sanctity to the degree in which he is most human. Only Yon must believe that to be human you Are at Ybur Best at your happiest. I have watched congregations leave their houses of worship As if their souls had been whipped. I should like to have my people go from my Temple As men and women who feel that they have gotten a new Joy to live. We shall not have the right sense of religion nor the True sense of life until we shall have put the smile and the la Erht into both pulpit and Pew. We jews love life openly candidly. And Judaism is a religion of human nature. Humor is not forbidden it does wave Toca me to us stealthily under a hush. At least one of our festivals is devoted to fun frankly fully. But our fun is clean and there is no excess or sjprioai�8s in it. In other words our religion has sublimated a True instinct and i is keeping it fresh and genuine. Considering the tragedies of jewish history and even of the current experiences of millions of jews one would expect the jews to be stolid and sober. But the reverse is the fact. The jews Are lovers of life they Delight in they seek they Reward humor and Judaism is perhaps the most optimistic religion today.
