Herod Street Now Bezalel St

February 16, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Herod St. Has gone the way of St. Petersberg. It has been renamed. Hereafter it will be known as Bezalel St.

The alteration in the name is the result of the protest of Professor Shatz of the Bexalel School. The Jewish professor is against any further advertisement of despotic King Herod.
