Description Information
   A large pink poster, 416: 505 mm., light age staining, creased on folds.
   A warning and injunction against the Turkish baths of the Bukharan Quarter of Jerusalem.

The poster reads: A protest and a great warning - to the grief of the Haredi community in the holy city of Jerusalem. We were shocked to hear that in the Bukharan neighborhood is a center for abomination and baseness under the name of Turkish baths.

We turn to the members of the Committee of the Bukharans to do what they are obligated to do under the Torah - to immediately close this bathing place at any price.

And the Torah opinion should be publicized the injunction not to enter such a dangerous and abominable place.

Signed: Moshe Aryeh Freund, Yisrael Moshe Dushinsky, Binyamin Rabinowitz, Yisrael Yaakov Fisher, Avraham Dovid Horowitz.
