See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

More than 2,000 ultra-Orthodox Jews gathered in the Mea Shearim quarter of Jerusalem today to hear Rabbi M. Epstein, head of the Neturei Karta religious group, recite the ban of excommunication on the Jerusalem swimming pool, which opened here a few days ago, and on the owners of the facilities as well as on the bathers. The Torah draped in black was carried while the ban was recited by the rabbi.
