Download PDF for this date

The employees of the Warsaw Jewish Community, the largest Jewish Community in Europe, went out to-day on a one-day strike as a protest against the decision of the Community to reduce their salaries by a total of 400,000 zlotys annually. While the Community is reducing our pay in this drastic manner, the strikers complained, besieging the Jewish Community offices in their hundreds to-day, demanding the withdrawal of the decision, the Community is engaging 25 new Rabbis at an annual salary of 270,000 zlotys.
