Palestine Rabbis to Go to Warsaw in Protest on Shechitah

Download PDF for this date

A conference of Palestinian rabbis adopted today a resolution bitterly attacking the bill in the Polish Parliament which would ban kosher slaughtering and decided to send a delegation to Warsaw in an attempt to induce the Government to abandon the proposal. The delegation will also bring a message of encouragement from Palestine Jewry to the Polish Jews.

Meanwhile, the Jewish National Council (Vaad Leumi) also adopted a resolution assailing the Polish slaughtering bill.

Addressing the rabbinical conference, Moshe Avigdor Amiel, chief rabbi of Tel Aviv, asserted that the upbuilding of Palestine outweighed all other duties of the Jewish people.

Other resolutions adopted by the rabbis favored the employment of Jewish laborers in Jewish enterprises and protested the recent announcement by the Palestine Government of a representative legislative council.
