The Jews did not obey the order of the authorities, and the Jewish leaders were held responsible that the Jewish children up to the age of 13 must attend school or be taught privately. Every Jewish community. Boiberke included, had to have public schools for their children, and the authorities issued an order not to permit anyone to marry unless they could declare in sworn statement that they had learned the German language (the language of Austria) which was taught in these schools.

Not that they were always drunk, of course, but they were always singing or playing on musical instruments or producing impromptu vcrscs;particular-ly Nahum Sternheim, a folk poet who was known all over Galicia and always wore a poetic tie. He was a sworn bachelor who finally married, an egg dealer for a living and a versifier for his own sake. Above all, almost all of them were scholars.

The committee members were sworn in by an oath of loyalty to the Polish king and were responsible to the authorities. Every month, one of them, the "leader of the month", was head of the Community.
