Jewish Deputies Form Bloc; United Front Fails

Download PDF for this date

Efforts to form a united front of Jewish deputies in the next Polish parliament failed here today when the Agudist representatives, Minzberg and Trockenheim, refused to join the Club of Jewish Deputies.

The remaining three Jewish members of parliament, however, did form a bloc, consisting of Deputy Rabbi Rubenstein of Wilno, Senator, Professor Schorr of Warsaw, and Deputy Sommerstein of Lwow, who was elected president.
