Religious circles here reported today that Senator Moses Schorr, former Chief Rabbi of Warsaw, has been sentenced by the Soviet authorities in Lwow to nine years’ imprisonment.

The same circles reported receipt of a telegram from Senator Jacob Trockenheim saying he was in Bialystok, Russian Poland.
