Synagogue Thronged for Memorial Meeting

Download PDF for this date

Thousands of people thronged the Yeshurun synagogue yesterday for a memorial meeting marking the half year, according to the Jewis calendar, since the riots. Rabbi Meir presided and the speakers included Chief Rabbi Kook, M. M. Ussishkin and Ben Zwi. The synagogue and its precincts were so crowded that Rabbi Uziel and other personages were unable to get into the meeting.
