The chief rabbinate of Palestine today called on all national Jewish institutions in the country to dismiss any of their officials who participate in Saturday sports. The Agudath Israel, extreme Orthodox organization, has been making a determined fight to prevent Saturday games. It has asked the High Commissioner to enact an ordinance making such games unlawful.
