HONOUR FOR MR. GOLDBERG. Illuminated Address from Swan. sea Jews. Mr. Hyam Goldberg, who for three years has been president of the Swansea Hebrew congregation, was made the recipient of a handsome illuminated address on the part of the Jewish community—and to which rich and poor subscribed-on Sunday evening in the King's Hall. There was a large 0 at- tend an cr- of co religionists, with whom and the public geJierally Mr. Goldberg is highly popular. Mr. Goldberg, it will be r-membered, only recently retired from the chairmanship of the Swansea Hospital. In recognition of -,ie valeable services he had endered n many Ernest Barnett, his colleague ui office, cùnc idea of presenting 1 11 Mr. Goidberg with a taflRBbu^re*sion of I 77,14 1 the community s recognition and good-will, Mr. E. Barnett, the ~esident, in making the presentation, saad he had been requested by the members to present the testimonial, which was so well deserved. Mr Goldherc had been nn dent, and the benefit accruing from his ten ure of office they stiill f .t, and all regretted that he could not see his wav clear to retail the office for another year. The great n- terest h- had taken, even in things, hit readiness to sacrifice valuable time for grea ter affairs, his regular attendance to syna- gogue srrvices, and, in faot, to all duti<* connected with the office, were examples fit to be cop ed by any president. Speaking of Mr. Goldberg's initiative regarding the Synagogue Vestments Societv, Mr. Harnet &aid that all too thoroughly appreciated the genuine interest taken by Mrs. Hyam Gold- berg, not only in work connected with the Synagogue Society, but in all duties that fell to her lot whilst Mr. Goldbery was pre- sident. Mr. Barnett touched noon Mr. Goldberg's work, and said, amongst other things, that he had tak"n an abnormal in- terest in the Hebrew and religious edurst'oa of the Jewish children, and, as president, Mr. Goldberg had not been excelled. Mr. Goldberg, who was visibly affected, suitably replied, r,- said the presentation was altogether unexpected. For 75 years his family had been identified vrith co-relig;onist and synagogue work in Swansea. He was sure that what he had done had all lis energy in it. He also wished to say that his friends that were present should taka heed of what a Christian gentleman had said to them only a fortnight ago, and ask them to identify themselves mnre with out- side work. The liiiumin;a>»<, address, which is -he work of Thomas. Swansea (and is nxgf- view at Messrs. Ben Evans') is i>><#mbed 0:1 top (in Hebrew), "For the sake ox the House of the Lord our God. we wish you ali that is good. To Hyam Goldberg, Ksq., one who has faithfullv occupied him- self with congregational affairs." Tbe tes- timonial proceeds :— "Dear Sir.—We. the members of tha Swansea Hebrew Congregation ask your ac- ceptance of this address as a token of onr appreciation of the valuable services ren- dered by you to the community.

"We sincerely hope that Almighty GtKJ may grant you health and long life and sus- tain you in the good work, the extension of which is our mutual aim.
