Bucharest (Mar. 28)
The Ministry of Finance has at last paid out a sum of 1,600,000 lei of the Government subsidy promised for the year 1931 towards meeting the needs of the Jewish Communities in Roumania. The sum has been paid over to Dr. W. Filderman, the President of the Federation of Jewish Communities in Old Roumania, who will transmit their share to the Jewish Communities in the provinces of Bukovina, Transylvania and Bessarabia.
The Government’s action in paying over the promised subsidy has given rise to a great deal of satisfaction among the Jewish population, particularly at the present time of economic crisis when the Jewish Communities are in serious financial difficulties.
