(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Three hundred worshippers have severed their affiliation with the Warsaw synagogue on Tlomackie Street, the leading synagogue in Poland’s capital, it was announced today.

The synagogue has a membership of 1,000 men and 800 women. The falling off of membership was due to the recent decision of the Board to raise the membership fees, many of the members finding it impossible to pay because of their economic condition.
