Download PDF for this date

That there was for a time the danger that the Moscow Temple would be confiscated by the Soviet authorities, as reported in a Riga despatch last week, was confirmed today when the Wzik officially informed the synagogue authorities that the confiscation will not be carried out.

The Wzik dismissed the application of the Cinema “Gorinka” for permission to convert the synagogue into a cinema.
