Charge Warsaw Consul Creates Difficulties for Rabbis to Emigrate to U.S.

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Increasing obstacles are placed by the American Consul in the way of Polish rabbis who desire to proceed to the United States. The Consul demands that in order to secure a visa for his passport, the Rabbi must submit additional documents including the diploma of a rabbinical seminary and a certificate that he has served as a rabbi of a community for two years. Due to these demands no Polish rabbi can obtain a visa as none of them have obtained diplomas from rabbinical academies.
