Legal Ruling of the Leading Rabbis of Palestine and Other Lands
Regarding the Obligation to Secede from the Zionist Nationalist Council

It is a holy obligation, for the honor of G-d and His Torah, for every Jew to request that his name be removed from the rosters of the irreligious community. Whoever is lax and does not do this will be automatically written down as a member of the irreligious community. Every Jew is obligated under Torah law to take quick action and do all that is necessary according to the laws of the honorable British government so that his name be removed from the community roster of the Nationalist Council.

Signed by Rabbis:

Yitzchok Yerucham Diskin, Jerusalem
Yosef Chaim Zonenfeld, Jerusalem
Eliyahu Klatzkin, Lublin
Moshe Nachum Wallenstein
Moshe Yosef Hoffman, dayan of Pupa
Shlomo Eliezer Alfandari, Sephardic community of Jerusalem
Moshe Kliers, Tiberias
Shlomo Elyashiv, author of Leshem
Shaul Douek
Yosef Yedid Halevi
Yaakov Chaim Sofer, author of Kaf Hachaim
Yisroel Meir Hakohein, author of Chofetz Chaim
Meir Simcha Hakohein, Dvinsk
Yosef Rosen, Rogatchov
Chaim Ozer Grodzensky, Vilna
Menachem Mendel Zak, Riga
Shlomo Zalman Breuer, Frankfort
Yisrael Hager, Vizhnitz
Yitzchok Zelig Morgenstern, Sokolov

Whoever trembles at the word of G-d is obligated to obey the decree of the sages and send a notice during this month of Iyar requesting that his name be removed from their community roster.

Yosef Tzvi Dushinsky, rabbi of Jerusalem
