Yom Kippur provoked one of the most sensational quarrels that has ever taken place in Manchester Jewry, a young man shooting two of his elder brothers.
Meyer Gordon was shot in the right thigh and the bullet of his brother assailant pierced Benjamin Gordon in the left instep.
Isaac Gordon who did the shooting told the police that his brothers had provoked his wrath by their reproval of him for failing to attend synagogue services on Yom Kippur.
A charge of shooting with the intent to kill was docketed against the young man. The trial has been adjourned.
