A move, having behind it the Jewish merchants of Jaffa Road, the principal business street of Jerusalem, toward securing the employment of more Jewish workers in the Jerusalem electric works, was made here. All the leading Jewish merchants signed a petition, whereby they undertook not to use the electricity furnished by the Jerusalem Electric Company, unless more Jews are employed.
The Vaad Ha’er, Jerusalem Jewish Committee, published a list of the signatories today.
