(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Charges of discrimination by the Hungarian government against Jewish religious institutions in the country were made in a memorandum submitted to Count Klebelsberg by the Hungarian Jewish consistory.

The memorandum protests against the unequal treatment accorded to Jewish congregations in the question of state property. The consistory demands that the government make good the damage done to Jewish religious property and grant Jewish religious institutions equal rights with other churches.
