A Wise memorial Day founder s Day fittingly celebrated at Cincinnati with ceremonies Iti hebrew Union colleges splendid a it suits National federation Temple sisterhood scholarship fund presented. Tlok memory 9 upe Mayer a tee was fittingly honoured at the hebrew Union College Cincinnati founders Day saturday afternoon March 24, in the presence a Large Assem Blage. The usual saturday afternoon service was read and then the memorial Sermon was delivered by rabbi David Lefkowitz Dayton o., a Suoi res. X i Isaac m. Wise the irreducible minimum his message. Quot and the lord called unto Moses and spoke unto Jpn firms the wit cd meeting Jet a m it Iii a solemn obligation and a rare pro Liege to lpns Nib to vocalize the message wafted to us to Day upon the wings a blessed memory. The Wor spoken a memorial Day like the should be As Toa personal As affection and lingering thoughts will allow and yet How the personal crowds in upon us. Flor it is Ian pc m. Wise whom we Comra onorate in these services. For Brief space let fond memory reign. The gentle Bent figure again appears before us the kindly smiling Eye again looks us and through us the voice the master is again heard in All the varied tones argumentation. Teaching and fervid exhortation. Back to us come the lineaments Lilis spend and Leader a his inspiring teacher and guide and we soon realize that Here Are memories that cannot be so vocalized and articulated As to be intelligently transmitted to those who either a Fwy not Fen owing could not penetrate into the Sanctum his extraordinary individuality and loveable personality. Yim personal word must be 8poleehfe�ft�� the thought has beef with me Ever since the summons came to me to deliver this founders Day Sermon. Seventeen a Fps ago with ten others my class. I walked through the sad drizzle that Grey Day in March the Honor guard that simple Black casket that held All that was mortal our teacher and guide and Friend. On the threshold our career we were thus sadly bereft neophytes without the masters presence. Other students before us had gone out from the classroom into the vitiated atmosphere life where the spark their religious enthusiasm flickered As though about to be extinguished but they were Able to come Back to their teacher and Friend for renewed in courage rent and inspiration to revive the to flagging spirit and waning courage. We had a to fare Forth into the world Ujj Jold Only by a sacred memory. Upon us the loss the Leader american Israel came Down with its full crushing weight. And now i am the first that class that was his Honor Gud m bellied a a a publicly in these founders Day memorial spices to give my Eulogy to the Elijah who left us upon1 the near Brink the Jordan sept the privilege yet Solms pay mighty the obligation for i am to voice the grief american Israel left like our class All bereft by the vanished Elijah. Every great personality touches the life about him in two ways one tangential with the larger circumference world relations and the other As it pierces the smaller Circle his time and. Country. So it was with Isaac Mayer Wise. Symbolic that larger relation is the opt nip in our scriptural Reading to Day the third Book Vay Ikra for . Wise helped in the inauguration the third period jewish a unfold ment. In the first period Israel receives the Law and becomes conscious its great implications through the prophets and in the second. Phase a Israel studies an interprets the Law and enlarging its Bounds lives upon this heritage through the dark night the Middle Ages a i the third period is introduced pc the reformers the nineteenth Century among whom Isaac m. Wise was a veritable giant searching the Laws Validity Quot and so revitalizing and beautifying it that Israel might be kept faithful at that most critical period whey it is in a position to transmit the Law to the world his world task was Well done and will remain As 1 permanent itt the culture w Israel As the amendments the prophets the Tak not the sages and the modifications the later teachers. A to a a Fps to to a a a to a to Foj a a it i Hie relation to that smaller a Toile american Israel that seen is to a be foreshadowed in the first words that scriptural portion which is read at tto a season when the life Toje m. Wise had its beginning and saw a Ftfe end. Zoffay Ikley f Ejof Fabbe Amonoy Elov me Ohel a no Edi god called unto him As he called unto Moses. Our rabbis said that any Mes Ige god which is introduced by the word Vay Ikra a Lashon Hibba a suggested something especially pre Ous and dear to god and tit Fojt a Umal Hay Hab Hores might am Shin to a a i in min Strant in gels took part in the revelation. Surely a precious messenger and a ministering Angel Une into american Israel in Isaac Salt and a Iii Oslo like to Spall Shay hash ores repeated the message f god to to in i Back Aimi Forth the ords that gradually burned into the science the people. Vay Ikra. God called and spoke to master Mayo Hel Moed from the tent meeting from the do Bir the Iner Sanctuary and he like Moses spoke the message to the people. Of hard it was to make the people hear How difficult to stir them to aeon to convince them that his message is genuine the life the Rophet is one soul torment. He Ould move quickly but he is pulled Back by ropes steel he would build but others tear Down he would sput them but they Are apathetic he would Tell the vision that came to him in the Sanctum his soul but they would depreciate him his message. It was a Long hard Way that he had to travel difficult for us to realize for to a Quot thoughts that great hearts once a amp broke for a Jjo a to a a we breathe Chi aply with the common air v b yet the Story that Long journey it Steingrub a Bohemian Village to Cincinnati from March 29, 1819, to March 29, 1900, the Date his burial Haw been retold in a direct circumstantial and detailed manner by his Prand sort without any rhapsody which might have been excused uner the conditions the Story Isaac Mayer Wise is unfolded before us and we seem to tread the grounds Romance. As by the touch a necromancers Wand the spirit apathy departs the frayed worn out Gar garments american Israel Are replaced by the fresh vesture modernity a breath passed Over the land and out the Valley dry Bones arises a mighty Host. For every opponent there Rise ten ardent supporters through whose help Are built the Inion american hebrew congregations the hebrew Union College the Central conference american rabbis and out these structures come the blessings Union responsibility learning and worship. Only a great spirit possessed indomitable Resolution could have accomplished All this. Seeing the goal he and a dismayed to it. Though we must not forget the Aarons and Churs who held up his hands especially Here in Cincinnati and All the Middle West he was Ever the Leader he always lit the fuse he was the master mind. Though we remember with reverence the Bezaleela who wrought wisely in the precious Metal donated by the devoted congregations. It was Isaac m. Wise who like Moses old As the Midrash tells us Ampliado the Power to set up the Structure the Sanctuary american Judaism. It. Is new seven ppm was taken from the stirring scenes his tremendous accomplishments. And in this period the problems jewish life which came within his knowledge have become More and More Complex and new problems that had not yet risen above his horizon Are begging nay demanding an Early solution. Is it not True that Many a time since that March Day in 1900 �1 have pm for a i it i like Kab to meet difficult Ftp pm pin to utter coppl1 . And with in almost superhuman Energy to produce results alas even As my class eleven just starting out upon life had to give him m and find courage in a sacred Mem a so american Israel at the opening the twentieth Century that Century which Isaac m. Wise prophesied would mean so much to the jew and Judaism turned to his place and found him not. But though he is not Here his spirit is still with us whenever reverent Nln Mory recalls him his voice still Galleth and the irreducible minimum his message left As his homage to american Israel is still our guiding Star Vay Ikra. He called Ever since his Albany Days for a vital appealing Public worship in Israel so that it might not happen that a the House the lord will be desolate nearly so in ten but though convinced that none can Check the Swift wheels the age he never became an authority unto himself. He always took the halacha for his basis at any rate he sought to keep his Vanguard reformed Judaism at least in sight the rest Israel. The basis was the Hazacha with his reforms not the ego. This Call is still needed. We Are surrounded with religious enterprises that Center about a personality and depend for their continuity upon that personality alone. Unlike Isaac m. Wise they do not subordinate themselves to the Din but Are a Law to themselves. They will not co operate in deliberations nor accept the results those deliberations. The congregations to which they minister Are getting farther and farther away from the general Community Israel Iffla neither the ancient language nor the ancient ceremonial to Mark them As jewish. Surely that is the Way an irretrievable schism in Israel. Voice Isaac m. Wise Galleth again to beautify. The ceremonial even As he beautified the Mark into the Seele Feier his Kol Nidre service in i his mining America to beautify but not to eliminate to Reform but not to amputate. If the voice Isaac Mayer Wise Galleth Vay Ikra to revitalize jewish worship and congregational spiritual activity not along lines individual vagaries but in Accord with the common Hopes and aspirations american Israel.

Levy pres., 401 Union in american he effected a Union congregations but alas not the Union american Israel. Still divided stand israelis forces in America divided now when Union is imperative. Vay Ikra. Isaac m. Wise then called and he still Calls for Union in Israel. As then his spirit demands that All personal questions precedence and honors be waived that the one thing necessary is Union before the world when the body Israel must be fed and the rights Israel must be demanded. All must be ready to hold their own plans in abeyance before these two great needs. Orthodox and reformer zionist and anti zionist must eliminate their isms so that Union for the great end shall be possible. For that reason for instance nothing should appear in the program the jewish Congress such As the thought phrase a group rights a which has in it the very ground opposition a great Many in american Israel. We have gotten beyond the period group rights Israel demands individual rights upon the basis individual citizenship. £0 in Elliis a this then the the irreducible minimum the message the great Leader a message which in each item helps us to solve the old problems which have reappeared with greater complexity and also the newer ones that Isaac m. Wise not know. He is still the teacher still the guide and the Star his message still lights us our Way. 4hadran Alach a such is the formula at the close each treatise in Ltd it me the ancient editions the talmud a we will return1 to such is not Only our formula but also our feeling after again having contemplated with Loving reverence the life Isaac Mayer Wise. When indifference seizes upon the people when the leaders set themselves up for a Law unto themselves when there is danger irretrievable schism in american Israel Hadr an Alach we will return to thee for the antidote for rampant individualism and for religious Devotion. When the jewish ministry is Apt to lose some its religious Zeal and Humble piety had ran Alach we will come Back to be warmed by thy fire prophetic enthusiasm. We will learn thee How to walk humbly before our god How to be human and kindly and Loving mercy. When the divisions Israel fall out upon the Road Hadron Alach a we will return to thee for lessons in True and effective Union for the welfare Israel. And when we thus return May we hear thy Call Vay Ikra As Clear As it has come from the innermost soul every great Leader since Moses to the heart a responsive people and for our inspiration May we see thy resplendent figure. A one who never turned his Back but j v marched breast Forward never doubted Clouds would break never dreamed though right were worsted wrong would Triumph. Held we fall to Rise Are baffled to fight better. Of sleep to Wake Elfi the memorial Sermon was preceded by a Superb rendering a hear Israel from the Elijah oratorio by mrs. David Workum.

Tooel tided from last a week jewish Charity also extends to christians As Well As to jews i their donations to hospitals under no religious control Are almost As frequent As to jewish societies. All this is in addition to the Rule to look after their own poor just As moslem and Par sees adhere to the same Rule in their own communities. I flt. The Christian May also appreciate the jew for what Sechas done in defense his country whether native adopted. The jew is generally reckoned More As a financier than As a Warrior. He probably prefers to Trade rather a than to i fight. And yet the heroism he has exhibited under suffering he is capable showing the Battlefield. Every count apr now at War in fun rope has its quota jewish soldiers. It might seem As if a jew being reckoned As outside the Pale Christian a communities and whose entity As a jew is never forgotten might be excused from military service and remain a Neutral while German and britishers Frenchman and russian austrian and hungarian Turk and Servian belgian and italian pole and galician fight out their own wars Conquest defense spoliation liberation but in All these countries jews Are at the front a hearing the Call obeying the order one asking a emperor president sul tan. In France at the beginning the present War there were As Many As eight jews a who a were a generals two Hundred others who were officers and above a the Grade Captain. Are six generals one a lieutenant Peld marshal. A. In the United states where there is full Liberty up Nof conscription and where the jewish population has mostly come from other countries the different wars have been represented in full proportion by the jewish citizens. In the american revolution besides the Good contingent enlisted jews when the total jewish population was scarcely 3,000, the most conspicuous assistance was that Hayem Salomon the Philadelphia banker who All told advanced $200,000 to the american government. In the civil War a both sides Between 7,000 and 8,000 jews were enlisted a larger proportion a than any other religious these nine held rank As generals v. The jews have also rendered political service to their country and for this their fellow countrymen who Are christians should show appreciation. Naturally we think the Earl Beaconsfield Benjamin Disraeli the Premier great Britain. He however was hebrew extraction but not much a jew in his religion. Of the lord mayors the City London five have been jews. The lord chief Justice my Jap ample up a a honorable positions in the gift the Crown to a jew sir Rufus Isaacs. There Are also two members Asquith a administration . Herbert Samuel and . Edwin Montagu. A Italy had a jewish Premier in 1910, Signor Luzzatti and the present Premier is jewish his Mother s Side. Or. Dernburg once colonial Secretary in Germany and still More lately an envoy at Large to the United states is the Only jewish name in a the German Cabinet but he like Dis Radii was not brought up in the Faith his fathers. A if a v a a i several jews have been Cabinet ministers in France. Ever Paf a ment in Europe has had jewish representatives. In the up Laiben we might mention those who first secured civil rights As lord Rothschild and sir David Salomons and later . Sir Edward Sassoon sir Julian Gold Smid and sir George Jessel. As to the United states the late ambassador to constantinople . Oscar s. Straus and the present incumbent . Henry Morgenthau Are devoted jews and also Liberal in their sentiments to those other faiths. A a i y i. For the a services rendered a to the world though science and Art the Christian should a also extend a appreciation to the jew. A the jews even those the poor and oppressed classes have always possessed Ai traditional passion for learning. As the restrictive measures a governments have stood in the Way jewish participation in Public a service so the same restriction has shut out Many Young jews from the Large universe. Ties. A jews the conservative school have for a centuries been i a berated for their religious lore their Humli acumen an skill jews who have absorbed their Peculiar learning modern science have also attained to the highest proficiency and been a in Timm Mph for the / Good for abilities have brought to Mankind to a world in Jpn Mia the percentage Jetteh students in the gym Nasia is eight times As Large As the percentage christians Amhi while free from 01 Russia and a a omani Jpn have a been noted a for a Iti a tar parties and their spirit narrow intolerance.
