Development of Miami’s Jewish
Community
(Excerpts; from “The History of Miami Jewry” which will
be published when completed)
By ISIDOR COHJEN
While Miami’s Jewish community had made great
strides of progress prior to the ye a r 1925 (historic land
boom), it had yet to learn the value of competent and will-
ing communal workers. <
No institution or organization
can thrive under repression of
those individuals who manifest
talent for leadership. It is regret
table to note that in this respect
our race has changed but little
since the time or Moses. Jewish
leaders, especially in small com
munities, are invariably subjected
to petty annoyances by their de
tractors who are envious of those
who through public-spiritedness
and innate ability render valuable
service and receive the approva:
of broad-minded people. Its evil
effect often robs the community
of the full benefit which efficient
and influential workers are capa
ble of rendering under proper en
couragement and immunity from
animadversion. Such obstruction
ists frequently evince deeper pre
judice against their fellow Jews
than non-Jews. This evil is in a
large measure responsible for
Jewish sectarian discord in some
small southern communities. Their
lack of cohesion and mutual .sym
pathy renders such communities
useless to American Jewry as a
whole. Where such an unsalutary
situation exists, It is found that
the notoriously parsimoni ous
members thereof, although weal
thy, try to cover their lack of
generosity and altruism by opposi
tion to those who through merit
become outstanding figures in the
community. The solution to this
vexing problem lies in their expo
sure to the'scorn of the general
community. It should be noted,
however, that many in that cate
gory are amenable to reason, and
are often won over to a worthy

cause, whereas those of the form
er class are incorrigible.
Much of the trouble experienced
by such communities may be as
cribed to the provincialism of
certain spiritual leaders. Instead
of preaching and exemplifying
unity, they accentuate the theolog
ical and geographical differences
of the Jewish group; thus inten
sifying the inherent prejudices of
their followers. Instead of foster
ing friendly relations, they imbue
their flocks with a spirit of rival
ry in the interest of their respec
tive congregations which renders
cooperation and coordinate com
munal action in Jewish movements
impossible. Where such a condition
exists it may be traced to deep
seated rabbinic jealousies. Con
gregational antagonism develops
into individual hostility among the
laity with it attendant evils which
are provocative of anti-Semitism.
Anti-Semitism is indiscriminate, it
recognizes no theological or ge
ographical distinctions between
Jew and Jew. Such artificial dif
ferences are effaced when anti-
Jewish feeling is aroused. Mutual
disparagement by Jewish commu
nal leaders breeds anti-Semitism.
