Turn Synagogues into Workmen’s Clubs, is Plea

Download PDF for this date

“Follow the example set by Minsk and turn Jewish synagogues into workmen’s clubs” is the appeal made by “Emes” the Jewish communist organ in its last issue. A gale celebration is planned by the Jewish communist press tomorrow, March 7, the fifth anniversary of the issue of the first Jewish communist paper.

A majority of the Jewish schools in Homel Gubernia have substituted the Sunday sabbath for the Saturday rest day. Many of the factories employing Jews hitherto closed on Saturday are also adopting the Sunday Sabbath.
