Roumanian Communities Bill Criticized by Jews

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A bill regulating the relations between the state and the various churches in the kingdom of Roumania will be introduced at the next session of the Roumanian parliament, according to the announcement of the Minister of Religion, Lapdatu.

The bill provides that the clergy of the various denominations must be Roumanian citizens.

The new ordinance regulating the affairs of the Jewish communities in Roumania was made public by the government. The ordinance which provides that only one Kehillah may exist in each city called forth dissatisfaction among the Jewish population, particularly in the new provinces where two Kehillahs, Orthodox and Reform, are unwilling to amalgamate.
