Download PDF for this date

The Jewish Sabbath Alliance of America, has undertaken to ask that Sabbath observing Jewish barbers in New York State be allowed to keep their shops open on Sunday, in view of the new Sunday Barber Law, which goes into effect on July 4th, and which provides that all barber shops be closed on Sunday, according to an announcement by William Rosenberg, Executive Secretary of the Alliance.

Sabbath observing barbers are filing affidavits with the Alliance, in order that they be allowed to keep open on Sunday. The Alliance before undertaking to assist them makes thorough investigation to ascertain whether they are closed on the Sabbath.

Max D. Steuer and Mrs. Steuer are sailing tomorrow on the steamer Albert Ballin for Europe.

Among the passengers sailing on the “Berengaria” were A. D. Katcher, President of the Bukowina Jews in America: Carl Laemmle, president of the Universal Film Corporation.

Dr. Nathan Stern, Rabbi of the West End Synagogue, Congregation Shaaray Tefila, New York, will sail for Europe on the S. S. France.
