Synagogue Fight Returns to Synagogue for Decision

A quarrel that began in a synagogue, resulting in charges and countercharges of atrocious assault and battery, will be settled in the synagogue, according to a decision of Judge Thomas Kennedy of the Second District Criminal Court here.

Judge Kennedy agreed to permit Rabbi Rosen, chief orthodox rabbi here, to preside at the trial which will be held in a synagogue instead of in court. Both parties to the dispute, it is understood, have agreed to submit to Rabbi Rosen’s rulings, and the court will also accept decision in the case.
