   This Yiddish polemic is screaming - a fire!! (in both Yiddish and the English word fire written in Hebrew characters).

Assigning blame for a destructive fire to the profaning of the Sabbath and licentiousness and a call for Teshuva (repentance). "Do not let out Jewish children barefoot – do not send them out to the Treif (non-kosher) Hebrew schools which burn their souls... If Hashem, blessed be His name helps, and if we do not want more grief, and He will send the Righteous Redeemer (the Messiah)"

Signed – The Awakeners
