Lecture of Rabbi Jacob Feurelicb! at the Lin

UNWISE TO CHANGE TO SUNDAY
Christians Erected a Barrier from
Jews by Changing the Sabbath from
the Seventh to the First Day of the
Week All the Associations, Prac
tices and Principles of Judaism
Vould Be Sacrificed by a Change.
Rftbbl Jacob Feurelicht lectured last
night at tne Linden Street temple on
tbe advisability of changing the Jew
lota S.ibimth from Saturday to Sunday.
Additional interest Was added to tiie
subiact from the fact that at a recent
debate of the Culture societv, the ques
tion of lnulnng tbe change was deoided
In the affirmative. Btnrrlng to this
decision Rabbi Fourlicbt introduced bis
remarks by saying:
This induced me to select for the subject
fot my lectors this same iuetlon. We
Cannot Stand idly by when uch (U'-'tkms
lire agitating tbe mind of our youth. I.
as your rabbi, cnuuot remain indifferent
or silent when qMStlOM are raised which
I oi. corn the honor, the mission, nay, the
very life and existence I f all Israel.
The Sabbath is the mam pillar of Juda
ism. Like the uuity of Clod, the Sabbath
forms a part of the coveuant ou Bloat. As
molality derives its sanctity from Ood, so
does purity of life find its ftreiigth in the
Sabbath, Without the Sabbath Judaism
is ii religion without tlol, a life without a
s; int. The state could never endanger
i lie vitality, the hoe and vigor of the
Jew H ui es the general neglect of the
sabbath today. 1 na violation of the Snb
bath in coineii'jence . f the pressure of
oomn Sfcial competition robbed the Jew
i f his Idea ism. loot ened his family tie; it
materialized the Jew.
lAIl.t'IlK WITH NOTED RABHI3.
More than fifty years ago the question
bow to rescue the Ssbbaiu and with the
Babbath the cans of Judaism, was the
grave object under di9cusaiou m the con

Then already the trauafor ot tbe Sabbath

rabbis- The Sabbath wbicii is allowed to

business and social life had made upon
it. By v iv Of cotupromiso tbe iu
trodnotion of laddittona) Sunday Hrvices
was proposed, but this was also
defeated. I n Berlin Ueform congrega

Kinuorn's proposal of b.ddiug San-

"Every attempt to elevate the Monday to
tbe dignity of a solemn day of worship
will hasten the uef-'al of the nsitorical
sabbath. Tbe radical cure of a tramfer of
l!i.' Sabbath to Suuday, however, tt aside
of the impossibility of a trausplantatiou of
tne Jewisu sentiment counectod with the
Mhbath to Sunday, tantamount to a recog
nition of Christianity as the ruling power
of all our conditions of life. It is the sub
ordination to the ''brutiao principle. It
is a surrender ta tbe conflict of ilea rui-
iiig the worl i history. To jive lu here
. i re ui our ni-t rical mii oi
Mr Kobier. rabbl of Temple Beth-El
of New York, one of th" tnot learned
and prominent Babbis and one of tho
greatest reformers lu this country, was for
i i'bteeu vears one of the chief advocates
and promoters of tbe Sunday service
oneiilv declared three vears ago that

It you want to test the worth of an action
try to recognize tho underlying principle
and aim that produce It, or observe tho
consequences thereof, it cannot be denied
that Sunday servile has the tendency to
v. ak"ii the hold of the ancient Sabhatli
and sooner or later also of the other boll
days and commandments of tho Jew until
nothing will be left except a nuked theism
which in time will make an alliance with
free religionism and will become a religion
without a uoa.
IT I'AILKD IN OBIOAQO,
To verify mv iiSM-rli .n I I givevoii
Instanoe winch i a well known fact. The
Sinai congregation of Chicago was the
lirst in this country which Introduced Sun
duy services. At tho einne time tbe main
leiinnce of the regular Snbbath service wi
made the condition of tbe inovatlou. The
movement seemed to be very reasonable
and meritorious. Tuey said: quite a num
ber of people are nimble to attend divine
services on Sabbath why should they not
be offered bii Opportunity to snlisfy their
desire for a spiritual elevation But
alas I heboid the cousequeucosl A fow
years later the ancient Sabbath was
btm ruled out. Tbe Sabbath Is deBd!
Died of consumption. This was th offi
cial burial permit for the old Jewish Sab
bath lsi-ued by tbe spiritual leader of that
congregation. One year later the presi
dent of that congregation proposed nlso
to transfer nil the Juwish holidays to Sun
day as the most convenient day for divine
sorvioe. And It wa merely logical con
sistency on his part, although he was then
defeated by a few votes, but it is only a
question of t ime when his ndvico will be
lollowed. The Hebrew prayer book was
abolished, all Biblical and traditional rites
and customs were unuuled. Ono relic re
muinad in their synagORUP, the sacred
scroll, although it was not used
any more, lUU it reminded them
ou the past, mid tb;it they were Jews,
but at last this was n'.so thrown out to
gether with the holy ark.
A few weeks ago 1 received a circular let
ter which, I presume, was tout to all min
isters. Iu this letter tbe suggestion is
made to establish anew religion called
Unlon-creedj it is signed by free-thinkers
and loaders of ethical culture, and also by
the rabbi of the Sunday Sabbath congre
gation. These aro the eonaequenooi Of the
Sunday Sabbath movement. And still
there are some even in onr midst who co
incide with that radienl divine to trnusfer
the Sabbath to Sunday, declaring the old
Sabbath to bo dead. What right to justice
have those Sunday apostles to call tbe old
Sabbath dead? If tho Sahbatb is
dead in ono congregation, that does
not signify its total extinction.
Let them look at the Sabbath as it. is kept
at largo by Israel 01 today and they will
retract their statement that tho Sabbath

ing all the Jew of Asia, Africa, Europe,
America to Australia, wo will find that at

keep the Sabbath not a tenth part is will

1 preeO me von have read the letter
which Bar, Father Ignatius, of Ufale,
wrote last month to the Jewish World, of
londoii; It was ptibllehed iu most of the
Jewish weeklies here. That gentleman
being at tbe World's fair, vinted ;he Sinai
temple, in Chicago, and had a religious
conversation with the rabbi of that tem
ple, whom he calls an arch heretic and a
real atheiit, and expresses i.i- astonish
ment and grief that the Amorican Jews
have given up tbe whole of historic Juda
ism and l divinely revealed religion.
A change of the Sabbath would surely bj
regarded by cur Christian nrlghtnr a a
cowardly Surrender, or as a compromise
with tli ranug church. No, a thou
sand tlmse no. Our duty today is
to maintain onr Jewish identity
and to preserve our Jewish Sabbath with
out faltering, Without yielding.
We admire tho efforts of the late organ
ized Sabbath association, the members of
which nre the most prominent rabbis aud
laymen, of New York. The aim of this so
ciety is to restore the ancient Jewish Sab
bath to Its glory. All we can say Is that
we wilh sincerely that success may crown
their noble efforts. We used such socloties
in every city. The time has arrived for a
universal ctTort to reconquer tho lost Sab
bath of the Jew Wo cannot but gain lu
the world's ropect, lu our own self -esteem,
by a restoration of tho Jewih Sabbath
And instead of lessening Ha powoifui
bold upou th" people reformed Juda
ism must do it h utmost to atreug' li
eu its oauae. The very namo of
reform evinces a desire for reviving, not
for destrryiug the e.-'outial of religion.
TrUS progress lies not in abolishing, but in
improving the ceremonies of religion, and
in making snub improvements that will
tei.d to strengthen the religious leollng of
tbe people. The question of form and re
form should not interfere im matter per

The Sabbath must again bo rendered the
great ednoator and Instructor of the Jew;
and if circumstances hinder us rrom giving
the Sabbath the required sanctity, let us
do everything in our power to make tho
Sabbath evu ngaiu resplendent with its
charm and iutter. The Friday evening

words to our dear ladies: It is deplorable

Mentally Jesus it the bighojt type of
manhood. He has a tirm grasp on reality.
He sees thing:, as they are. Men aro liable
