Jewish tombstone cutters surrounded the Warshaw Kehillah building, demanding that the Kehillah withdraw its decision to take over the monument business in the city. The stonecutters blocked the corridors of the building and interfered with the telephone communications, demanding that their trade be returned to them, instead of being monopolized by the Kehillah as decided last month by the Kehillah Council.
It was necessary for the police to intervene in order to restore order in the vicinity of the building. The President of the Kehillah, H. Farbstein, who was in the building, managed to make his escape through a rear door.
