Sectarian Confrontation in the Synagogue
In the newspaper, Hamelitz, 17.10.1882:
Visoki-Litovsk (district Vilna) - In the ancient synagogue called Old Wall some of the men of the congregation came into the women's section to read from the Torah scroll on the day of Simkhat Torah. Some of our own brothers – a mob – came and hit them hard, and if not for the pristav, God knows how many would have been killed. The pristav wrote a protocol which was signed by witnesses and the case would be brought before the justice of peace.
