Th congregation Is not only a religion organization, but a kind of mutual Insurance Insurance and aid society. Member who die In good standing are buried, and their widows ars pensioned, and car and help are given In case of sickness or Injury. Membership Is.- Is.- therefore, valuable, especially a the cssn aanet in bank amount to several thousand dollars. Isaac OreenblatC who has a shoemaker's shoemaker's shop at 63 Attorney Street, is the President. Mr. Rabtaowlts became a member of the congregation several months ago. Pubtlo and private life la regulated by the synagogue synagogue with fidelity to th Book of Lswltlcus as strict as modern conditions permit. There are seventy special congregational rules to which every applicant for membership membership must promise obedience. One ot tn.se is that attendance upon the .service shall be regular unless some excuse satisfactory to the authorities is given. . Three weeks ago Mr. RablnowlU was absent absent from the regular Sabbath meeting of the eongrea-ation eongrea-ation eongrea-ation and sent word that he was sick. - Immediately after the conclusion of the service a committee was started out to pick up his trail. He was not found at his home. The committee reported, however, however, that he was found at a nela-hboiing nela-hboiing nela-hboiing saloon playing penuchl. and making royal marriages, fours, and sequences so fast that the piac was filled with th dust of the chalk he was using to keep count.

All the money he had paid in for dues was put In a bag as unclean and carefully left at his house. A proclamation reciting the alleged sins of Rabinowlts was written out In Hebrew and sent to each member of the .congregation. Rabinowlts has begun suit against the congregation for $2.0U damages. He denies that he Is a gambler, as the Governing Committee Committee charges, and says his expulsion Is the work of a faction which has always been opposed to him. Furthermore, he ssserts that there Is nothing In the seventy special rules or the general laws under which orthodox Jews are governed against playing penuchle, and certainly nothing requiring requiring a man to lose money on it If he can win. Louis A. Jafter of 320 Broadway Is counsel for Rabinowlts, and has served the Papers. Mr. Green Matt said last night that the matter had been referred to the congregation's congregation's lawyer. ilEAKXY 800 FEB CENT. Its on it to the For For For his any " In
