Description Information
   Only edition, small poster, 300: 235 mm., light age staining. Not in CD-EPI.
   A poster with an announcement from the Chief Rabbinate against a café called Europa. It seems that this café was the first to serve non – kosher foods, and as if that was not enough, it now is desecrating the Holy Sabbath by having an orchestra perform on Friday night (the eve of the Sabbath).

Even after all sides tried to prevent this, they were not successful to influence the owner of the café. So with this poster, the Chief Rabbinate is announcing that the Café Europa is as of this time, throwing off the yoke of religion and the holiness of Israel.
