Download PDF for this date

Two hundred students of the Yeshiva Emek-Halacha demolished the kitchen of the institution today when they discovered that food given them was not prepared according to Jewish ritual.

The angry students wrecked the kitchen completely. They poured out all the food and smashed all utensils used there.

An excited crowd surrounded the institution while the students were in action. Police arrived and dispersed the crowd. The seminarists demanded a rabbinical inquiry.
