Detailed
Description
   A poster put out by the Kosher Butchers of Greater Boston in which they express a desire to only work 5 days a week, and to be able to observe the Sabbath. So they are announcing that from Shavuot until Rosh Hashanah they will be closed both Saturdays and Sundays and in the merit of observing the Sabbath may "we all have peace speedily".

The poster continues with an appeal, in Yiddish, to pray for the welfare of the government. And in English "Let us pray for Justice and Liberty for all. By order of President Roosevelt and Congress."
