Labor Cooperative Stores Forced to Close Yom Kippur

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Several stores of the labor cooperatives which were opened on Yom Kippur morning were closed at noon at the insistence of Orthodox Jews. The staff of the stores had first declined to close. This resulted in a near-riot. The dining room of the cooperatives functioned as usual, serving meals to several hundred workers.

At a meeting of the Warsaw Kehillah Executive yesterday special allotments for holiday relief were made. The sum of 6,000 Zlotys was assigned for relief to impoverished Talmud students, and 3,000 Zlotys for Jewish writers and artists.
