A step toward the dividing of the Jewish communities in Poland into two distinct groups was made by the leaders of the assimilationist group in Warsaw.

Leaders of this group renewed their request to the Ministry of Education and Religion, asking for permission to create a new Jewish community which would be known as the “community of Poles of Mosaic faith.”

They also ask in their petition that the institutions built by the Jewish community of Warsaw be transferred to the new community, because they were established by the assimilationists, while the present leadership of the Warsaw kehillah is in the hands of Jewish nationalists.
