Rabbi Abramski, one of the Rabbis who was arrested by the Soviet authorities at the time of the big Minsk affair, at the beginning of 1930, when several Rabbis were arrested, and were at one time said to have been sentenced to death, rousing world-wide Jewish protests, has, on the intervention of Rabbi Ozer Grodzenski, the Rabbi of Wilna, been given permission by the Wilna District Governor to enter Wilna, on his way from Soviet Russia, following his release by the Soviet authorities, after a period of exile in Siberia. He has permission to stay in Wilna for one month, after which he will proceed to England, where he has been invited to take up a position as Cantor in one of the Communities.
