Under the new Sunday rest laws adopted by the Lithuanian government Jews will be obliged not only to refrain from doing business on Sundays but likewise on 200 other days which are observed as holidays by the Christians, according to a cable received by the Jewish Morning Journal. Dr. Samson Rosenbaum, former minister for Jewish affairs, has protested to the government against this law.
