Government Invites Vienna Kehillah to Resume Negotiations

The praesidium of the Vienna Kehillah was officially invited by the Austrian government to resume negotiations concerning its demand for an increase in the state subsidies for Jewish communal and religious needs.

The controversy between the Kehillah and the government concerning the subject, during which the government declined to concede the Kehillah’s request, has called forth much dissatisfaction in many circles. It was declared that a delegation representing the Kehillah will call on the government heads and ask for a specific written statement as to the increase and the dates of payment.
