Closing of Roumanian Hebrew School on Charge of Communism Agitates Bessarabian Jewry: Deputations Go

Download PDF for this date

The closing down of the Tarbuth Hebrew School at Soroca (reported in yesterday’s J.T.A. Bulletin) on the charge that it is a nest of Communism, has caused tremendous excitement among Bessarabian Jewry.

Jewish deputations from Soroca and from Kishineff are now on their way to Bucharest to make representations to the Minister of Education. They will submit to him evidence that there is no truth in the charge of Communism brought against the school, and will urge the Ministry to rescind the order so that the school should again be allowed to function.
