Printed proclamation, denial of the ban issued by the rabbis on voting for the Zionist parties in the elections for the Czechoslovak parliament. Orsheva (Irshava), "Wednesday Parashat Vayikra" [6th Adar II] 1924. Munkacs: Bernhard Meisels.
In the proclamation, the rabbis deny the prohibition published in their name to vote for the Zionist parties. Signed by Rebbe Yoel Teitelbaum of Satmar, R. Yosef Tzvi Dushinsky, R. Chaim Meir Hager, and Rebbe Yisrael Yaakov Yukel Teitelbaum Rabbi of Volova.

With the approach of the Czechoslovak elections, the aforementioned rabbis had issued the day before (5th Adar II 1924) a proclamation forbidding voting for the Zionist parties (see previous item). Since such a ban was illegal, they were forced to retract it in the present proclamation (presumably only outwardly, for the authorities).

[1] leaf. 23.5 cm. Good condition. Folding marks. Tears to margins and folds. Minor wear.
