Four Youths Sentenced for Stavsky Disorder Following His Acquittal

Four of the seven youths who were charged with causing a disturbance in the Great Synagogue here when Abraham Stavsky, acquitted in the Arlosoroff murder, was called up to give the “Gomel blessing,” recited by one delivered from a catastrophe, have been sentenced to various fines with the alternative of prison sentences.

A boy of sixteen named Kotler has been sentenced to two months imprisonment without the option of paying a fine. His case will be appealed.

In passing sentence, Chief Magistrate Ralph Bodilly said that these cases are becoming all too numerous in Tel Aviv. A constable was injured in this instance.
