   Bi-lingual Hebrew-German Polemic concerning a dispute between the Orthodx communitu of Klausenburg and the Orthodox community issued as a supplement to the Jewish People’s Newspaper (Beilage zur Judischen Volkszeitung). It concerns a small publication entitled Mishpat Zedek that discusses the dispute. Noting that they are distant from the place where dispute occurred they are unable to fully address the issues. However, when they read about this they were greatly pained for Mishpat Zedek is a work from other rabbis who are making a breach in Israel. Due to this the Haredim have separated from the Orthodox community and formed a separate second Orthodox community in Klausenburg, for the first community was headed by Zionists. Many rabbis came and agreed that they had done the correct thing. This is because the Zionists have, according to the Shulhan Arukh, the din of apostates to all the Torah. The writers recognize that among the Zionists and Mizrahists are great rabbis and scholars. Nevertheless, the Histradut includes many hophshim lacking the fear of Heaven and concern for mitzvoth and therefore the rabbanim have come and excluded all Zionim from the Jewish community and made them as apostates to the Torah. It continues in this vein and has the names of eight prominent rabbis, R. Abraham Zilberberg, R. SolomonDavid Kahana, R. Hayyim Leib Yudovisky, R. Aaron Shingross, R. Menahem Shraga Ritshvell, R. Hayyim Posner, R. Hayyim Joshua Gutshecter, and R. Zevi Ezekiel Michalsohn.
