Joint Jewish Protest Issued Against Latvian Government New Educational Decree

Download PDF for this date

A joint protest against the infringement upon the autonomy of the Jewish schools as represented in the new educational decree, was issued yesterday by the Zionist Organization, the Mizrachi, the Socialists and the Revisionists.

Rabbi Nurok, the teachers and other Jewish leaders compare the new order with the compulsory methods aiming at the breakdown of the Jewish school system prevalent in the times of the Czar.

The protest strongly condemns the action of the government and appeals to the parents to send their children to Jewish schools only.
