The Maccabee club in Kishineff has lodged a protest with the authorities against the prohibition by the Military Command of the Province of a series of performances in the Hebrew language arranged by the club.

The protest points out that the plays in Hebrew have been suppressed, while plays in Russian, also an alien tongue, are sanctioned.
