(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

New elections to the presidium of the Warsaw Kehillah were ordered by the Polish Ministry of Education and Religions.

At a recent meeting of the Kehillah Council, Deputy H. Farbstein and Mr. M. Feldstein, both Zionists, were elected president and vice-president respectively.

The Agudath Israel protested against this election in a memorandum submitted to the Ministry of Education and Religion. The Ministry annulled the elections and ordered new elections to be held.
