Download PDF for this date

In response to a plea to the national NRA administration to include Saturday as a day of rest for Jewish workers, Rabbi Eliezer Silver, president of the Union of Orthodox Rabbis, received assurances from Dudley Gates, Assistant Administrator, that none of the codes will interfere with Jewish Sabbath observance.

“I beg to assure you,” said Mr. Gates, “that there is no reason to apprehend that any of the codes will fix hours which may interfere with the observance of the Jewish Sabbath.”
