Description Information
   Large poster 686:490 mm., creased on folds, light age staining.
   "Mind you and listen Israel" - at the large gathering that took place ... with R. Zvi Pesach Frank, on the 29th of Shevat where the Chief Rabbis, and members of the Bet Din (both Ashkenazi and Sephardi), teachers of and heads of Yeshivot , decided to go out in a vigorous protest against the growing and eating of rabbit in our land.

Behold we protest which all our might against all who profane out religion and unload the yoke of Torah, amd especially to sound the alarm about this newest breach of growing rabbits in many settlements and kibbutzim, even on land from Keren Kayemet.

We turn to the leaders of the funds to command the kibbutzim to immediately stop their antics and their abandonment of their religion...we will turn with our appeals of help to the faithful Jews all over the world...to denounce what is happening under the skies of Eretz Israel...

This poster is signed with the names of 36 distinguished Rabbis, beginning with the names of R. Zvi Pesach Frank, R. Isser Zalman Meltzer, R. Yaakov Moshe Charlop, et al.

עם חתימות הרבנים.
