The Minister of Education, Professor Costacescu, discussed the question of the Jewish school system in Bessarabia with a delegation of the Central Committee of the Tarbuth Organization in Bessarabia. The delegation reported to the Minister on the position of the Jewish school system. They asked that the Jewish elementary State schools, the Jewish High School of Kishineff and the Jewish Grammar School in Bender, which were closed by the previous Government, should be reopened. They also asked for the establishment of a Jewish Pedagogic Seminary and for rights for all the teachers in the Jewish schools, although they have not passed through a Seminary, because there is no Jewish Teachers’ Seminary yet established in Roumania. They further asked that an examination Commission should be appointed which would hold examinations in Hebrew.
The Minister promised that everything would be done in accordance with the law. He would send an inspector to Bessarabia to inquire into the position on the spot. A Commission would be appointed to look into the various demands put forward by the deputation and representatives of the Tarbuth Organization would be invited to join the Commission.
