HOUSTON TEXAS OCTOBER 801908
The Wail of a Mighty Nation
Extract from Sermon Delivered
by Rabbi Abraham D Pi ice at
Keneseth Israel Synagogue
Baltimore Mel
No people have had such sor
row When recently talking to
a native of Jersulam about their
grief at their wailing place at
Jerusalem I could not but feel
as I heard about their desolation
that they had reason to morn
Here once stood their state tem
ple Here had sat their sunny
city filled with the rejoicing that
freely flowed from a people most
favored by the Lord Here the
sweetest strains of Zion swelled
in harmonic numbers and height
of Olivet echoed their harmonic
melodic joys But now the
mosque of Omar usurps the place
of praise the collosal fragments
of grandeur are the urns that
receive Jewish tears Yet cen
tury after century this patriotic
people come from many lands to
pour out their wild lamentations
upon the stony ruins that once in
power and pride but tressed Je
hovahs temple No one can
read nor hear about the moan
ing woes without feeling the pa
thetic pliant of a peoples grief
Cheerfulness has given place to
dejection e hileration to depres
sion They cry How hath the
x > rd cast down from heaven to
earth the beauty of Israel How
is the gold become dim and the
most fine gold changed Our
holy and our beautiful house
wherein our fathers praised thee
is burned with fire We are be
come a scorn and a derision to
our fathers No sadder words
could be chanted They are the
funeral dirge of departed glory
Like a tragedy written in lines
of blood their trail for 1900
years may be traced among the
nations Persecution in every
form that cruelty could invent
has been heaped upon them The
torture robbery exile and des
potic tyranny of almost every na
tion has pursued them as slave3
they have been sold to the mean
and the mercenary as felon they
jJ dfoli > S A ft MHU t ± L
have bee n charged with everj
crime uner heaven The plague
of the middle ages vvere blamed
upon them The French burnec
them in every province Th <
Germans made their lives hide
ous withhorrible severity The
English even by their cruelties
to the Jews drew from the per
3f Sir Walter Scott that burning
picture Jn his Ivanhoe The
Spaniards wrecked unpitying
wraht upon them that many
were buried alive and about 300
were flayed by the flaming flag
got3 Christian Russia so far
forgot herself that she enacted
and is doubtless today enacting
the mostheartless policies to
wards ttfem In the thirteenth
century they were exiled from
England in the fourteenth ex
pelled from France in the fif
teenth driven from Spain and
in the nineteenth and twentieth
from Russia
Now the question is what is
the Jew of today going to do foi
his downtrodden brethren anc
the coming generations Will
he 3tandby and look on without
saying a word or will he at onc <
take steps to remedy the mattei
which the past left for the pres
ent

The Pride of the Jewish na
tion from the time of their Pa

so careless and see the Bickor
Cholim Society which does so
much good for the poor aban
