Charge Synagogue is Being Used for Klan Purposes

March 5, 1924
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Confronted with a prospect of seeing an organization they call a branch of the Ku Klux Klan meeting in their former synagogue, members of the Congregation Adath Yeshurun are charging that a lease to Pythian Hall, for many years used as a synagogue before an imposing new structure was recently built, was obtained under false pretenses and is therefore invalid.
