Rabbis’ Parley Discusses Proposals to Government

Download PDF for this date

The conference of Polish rabbis was in session all day yesterday. The main topic that was discussed was the preparation of a list of proposals to be made by the rabbis to the Polish government for the conduct of Jewish religious affairs.

The rabbis adopted a resolution protesting against the presence of freethinkers and Sabbath violators in the Kehillah councils. They also protested against the government proposal to establish a yearly religious census.

A delegation of rabbis, led by the rabbi of Rzeszow and ex-Deputy Lewin, visited the Ministry of Cults and asked the government to hold off its projected reforms until the conference will prepare its own proposals to the government in the form of a memorandum. The director of the Religious Department, Count Potocki, decided to take the matter into consideration.
