(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Polish government was urged to prohibit the Abrahamitic Rite on Jewish children in a memorandum submitted by the Polish students in the medical college of the Warsaw University.

The practice of the Abrahamitic Rite should not be allowed in a civilized country, the memorandum declared. It was learned that this demand was given no consideration by the authorities.
