Berlin Jewish Youth Organizations to Form Synagogue Defense Units

Download PDF for this date

Jewish youth organizations in Berlin are organizing defense units to protect the synagogues during the High Holyday services, it was learned here yesterday.

The defense units will be organized by the Bar Kochba, a Jewish sports organization and the Federation of Zionist Student Organizations.

The measures are being taken because of the generally disturbed situation and in view of the Nazi attacks last year as Jews were leaving services on Rosh Hashonah.
