Download PDF for this date

The famous Munkacevo Rebbe must serve a month in prison or pay a fine of 1,500 kronen for inciting his Chassidic followers against a Hebrew high school in Carpatho-Russia, according to a verdict handed down by a Czechoslovakian higher court today.

The verdict upholds a sentence by a lower court, from which the Rebbe had appealed.
