Faith of Her
Br H. M. EGBERT
Renovelized from I. Bern-
stein's adaptation of Bruno
Leasing's story, "A Daugh-
ter of Istael." Produced by
Life in the New York gbetlo Hon
on Its way undisturbed by external
happenings. Occasionally the Influi
of bands of compatriots from Russia
or Roumanla. bringing stories of perse
cution and pogroms, sends a thrill of
horror through the packed, noisy
streets. Hut. in the main, wars, con
quesU, earthquakes, booms and
slumps on the exchange leave the
ghetto comparatively tranquil.
Rabbi Tamor «aa I (.Inking of this
ms lie strolled along Hester street, tak-
ing his morning walk in the sun. He
had memories of another land where
life was much leBS even, where feath-
er beds were slashed open and throats
too, sometimes Here, in America,
■was that peace he craved, so that
he could Immerse hiniBelf in his stud-
ies of the Talmud, reconcile neighbor-
hood quarrels, and carry on his own
work of peacemaking
He never ceased to thank God for
this wonderful peace that had befallen
him in his old age. Nor for another
blessing, his daughter Bertha.
She had grown up in the ghetto.
Their love was mutual and founded
upon that harmony of disposition
which prevails in most Jewish homes.
A little crowd of boys in the dis-
tance attracted the rabbi's notice.
They were gathered outside a small
building, and apparently engaged in
Jeering at somebody inside. The rab-
bi quickened his footsteps, shaking his
'Hoys will be boys'' he muttered,
"but they mustn't be rude or pelt peo-
ple. Tchk!"—for one of them had
thrown a handful of offal from the
street "This must stop,'' said the
rabbi, hurrying along
Socn the cauBe of the trouble ap-
pearcd. Outside the building, whose
windows were cracked by stones, ap- >
peared in Jewish writing tne an-
nouncement that a Christian miasion j
had been established for the conver- ,
sion of the inhabitants.
The boys, seeing the rabbi, with-
drew. The old man shook his cane
at them and they scurried down the
street. Hut Rabbi Tamor walked
homeward despondently. He had 110
fear that any of his liock would ac
cept the faith which was associated
In his mind with persecution. Hut it
grieved him to come in cuntaet with

his hooks, his daughter rushed into ,
"Father! Come quick!" she cried, j
"They are killing the missionary, the j
"What? Who? Where is he?" stam- ^
leered the rabbi.
"Down the street, father! 1 he
Christian missionary!" cried the girl.
Rabbi Tamor, now fully awake,
grasped his cane and. tnrustlng on his
hat, rail down the passage into the
street. A small riot seemed in prog-
ress at the far end.
It was, Indeed, a risky enterprise of
the young missionary, to have set up
his tabernacle in that quarter When j
the rabbi and his daughter reached the ,
scene they saw a hooting mob around ^
the good looking young man who was
being buffeted and beaten by dozens ^
of hands. Rabbi Tamor pushed his ,
way through the crowd
"Enough! Enough!" he shouted, |
brandishing his cane in a threatening |
manner. "I'll have you arrested, III
have you arrested. I'll call the po
Hut that had been done already, tor
a small body of uniformed men caine
at the double along the street, and,
seeing them, the mob dispersed
Rabbi Tamor bent over the pros.
• He lives!" he cried. "Poor fellow.
A shame! An outrage on our faith!
Ilring him to my house. I'll Rive our
people an object lesson in charity. 1
know* who did this!
Muttering thus. Rabbi Tamor strode
behind the little knot of people who
carried the unconscious young Vian to-
ward his home. The hearers en-
tered and placed him upon the
lounge. The missionary's eyes opened.
He looked about him in bewilderment.
"It is all right, said the rabbi, rub-
bing his hands. You are safe now.
You are among friends. My people
stoned you—my people shall take care
of you till you are well."
The young mans eyes fell upon
Hertba The rabbi, following his
glance, saw that his daughter was
watching the missionary s face breath-,
lessly. Hut so keen was his glance I
that her eyes fell and a blush over-
spread her face-
At that moment 'lie shadow of a sor-
row to come fell upon Rabbi Tamor a
It had come, that which he had fore
seen and dreaded. The young man
and Her!ha were in love ^,th e*C
other. And he had asked Rabbi Ta
mor for his daughter s hand
The rabbi sat in his study, an open
roluuie of th" Talmud in his hand, but
he w « not pretending even to himself
There vm, at first, the caring fo
the sick man A woman was needed
there. Some intimacy had b«*en in-
evitable. Hut when he had chidden
his daughter she had looked at him
innocently—poor Bertha' He hoped
be had not hurt her too badly.
He did not blame liertha. He
blamed the young man. He was re-
membering his own bitter words:
"You ask to marry my daughter?
I'ou, a Christian? A missionary—one
of those who would turn us from the
faith of our fathers? And now you
want to corrupt my daughter, all ti.at
I have, and take her from me, in re-
turn for cur hospitality! Be off!
Leave my house and never show your
face here again!"
A violent scene had followed Both
the rabbi and the missionary were
ashamed of thenyselves afterward.
The young man went away, but he saw
Bertha that evening. He met her out-
side the tabernacle, where he bad
resumed his services.
"It cannot be right, dear, that we
should be kept apart," he said, "if we
care for each other. Be my wife. You
owe duty to your father, but he han
no right to stand between you and
The girl wavered. Her heart seemed
torn asunder between tie rlv*! claims.
She had not been string since her
mother died, six months before; she
had worn out her strength nursing
her, and this new sorrow seemed more
than she could bear.
"I will marry you." she said slowly.
"But 1 shall tell my father. 1 shall
not run away "
So she told him, and Rabbi Tamor
knew that the great peace was broken.
"At least you shall lei 4 the mean-
ing of your actions," he cried rough-
ly. "You shall know that you have
cut yourself ofT forever from your peo-
ple Tonight iB the beginning of the
Day of Atonement, when every one of
our people, whether he have lived well
or ill, makes his prayers for forgive-
ness for the shortcomings of the year.
And if he does not, his name is struck
out from among the congregation.
You know that? You remember so
much? Th'i come with me. come!"
Frantic with wrath and humlliition,
the rabbi strode toward tl;« ynagogue,
his daughter at his side.
"May her name, be struck out from
among the roll of the living! M..y
ber that. In gratifying your own de
sires you bring down your father'i
I head in sorrow to his grave and, not
only that, but you cut yourself off for-
ever from your own people. In you
they suffered in vain, in you they
lived in vain; and iu you they di^d In
He ceased abruptly and sat down
And now the ensuing silence was
broken by the heavy sobbing of the
girl in the gallery corner. Presently
the women near her began to weep as
well, and soon the little synagogue
was filled with lamentation which ac-
companied the rabbi's intonations
And to the ears of Rabbi Tamor it was
not alone the women there present
who wept, but all who had lived and
died. It was Rachel weeping for her
children, it was the men and women
who had suffered torture and agony
and had endured and had held true.
Bertha slipped out of her seat and
left the synagogue She seemed to

405 C Street
The younger rabbi, who was pre-
siding, held up bin hand, and at ilin
nign Kabbi Tamor ceaaed the furioiu
denunciation which when uttered
meant his daughter's excommunica-
tion. The little Fast side synagogue
was packed, the men on the lloor. the
women within the gallery. All knew
the story of Rabbi Tamors daughter
and the Christian missionary, and
eager were the faces that peered, first,
toward Bertha, who sat alone in one
c orner of the gallery, and then toward
her falher upon the floor, beside th®

But at the foot of the stair* Bertha
stopped and looked back toward the
little group that had silently followed,
awed by her strange expression.
"Tell him that I—" she began, and
sank down upon the grgund. Ihey
raised her In their arms.
That was the moment when Rabbi
Tamor perceived a group of people
about the door. He saw them from
afar, and he hastened bis steps, eon-
