Sues for Child’s Conversion Without His Consent

Eli Moghnage, the father of one of the six children converted by a Christian mission here without the knowledge of their parents, has brought an action for persuasion of a minor and asks for damages to his honor. The Jewish community is looking forward to the suit with interest, and on the result of the trial will depend whether or not other parents will follow Moghnage’s action.
