Jewish Board of Arbitration Organized at Saratoga Springs

Download PDF for this date

A Jewish board of arbitration has been organized for the Summer season for the purpose of attempting to settle disputes among the Jewish Summer visitors here without recourse to the law. The Jewish Hotel and Business Men’s Association of the city and City Judge F. Andrew Hall have aided in the organization of the board.

A similar board has been functioning during former seasons and has saved many Jewish disputants the embarrassment of appearing in court. The present board will be headed by Rabbi Jacob Leibowitz.
