A physical fight broke out among members of Prague’s Jewish community last week. Tomas Jelinek, who claims he was unfairly dismissed from his post as the community chairman in December, tried to enter a meeting of the Federation of Jewish Communities on March 2 but was blocked by Peter Hodal, the meeting’s organizer. Hodal says Jelinek assaulted him and he had to go to the hospital.
