Anniversary of Hitler Putch As Jewish Fast Day

November 22, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The first day of the Hebrew calendar month of Kislev has been decreed by Chief Rabbi Ehrentreu as a day offasting and prayer for the next ten years in commemoration of the averting of the pogrom on B ovarian Jewry November 8, when the Hitler-Ludendorff putoch miecarried.

Devout Jews are inclined to regard the failure of the putsch as nothing short of a divine miracle.
