WHEN the history of Llanelly is re-written, last Tuesday will stand out prominently as a red-letter day in the annals of Judaism in our town, for it was on that day the Chief Rabbi of the whole of the Hebrew Congregations of the British Em- pire had the pleasant duty of paying- us a visit for the purpose of opening the first Synagogue here Fifty years ago, I the Rev. Dr. Adler (then very young), in consequence of the illness of his father, who was at the time Chief Rabbi, per- formed a similar ceremony in Swansea, and last week, on his way to Llanelly, he had the intense pleasure of celebrating its jubilee. The Synagogue at Swansea was opened on the 25th September, 1859; therefore, its jubilee would not fall due until Sep- tember next, but probably the Swansea Jews took advantage of the Chief Rabbi's visit to Llanelly to celebrate the jubilee. We, as Christians, rejoice in the know- ledge that our Redeemer has come, and that he now liveth and sitteth at the right hand of God interceding on our behalf, but to the Jews the Messiah is to come, and their continual supplications are May the Redeemer come unto Zion" We cannot blame them if they are unable to see that He has come, but all Christians can pray that they may be brought to the glorious light of the gospel. They were tbechosen people of God, to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the services of God, and the I promises; whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen." We wish them every success in their Synagogue, but we would be de- lighted to find that they had recognised our Saviour as their Saviour too.
