Bulgar Premier Pledges Jews Their Rights

Download PDF for this date

A friendly reception was accorded a delegation of Bulgarian Jews who paid a visit to Premier Kimon Georgieff with the view of learning his attitude on the Jewish question. The delegation represented the Central Consistory of Bulgarian Jewry and included Haim Farhy, president of the Consistory Jacques Pardoff and Buca Manoah.

After voicing the hope of the Jewish community that the new government will be successful, delegation members said the Jews of Bulgaria anticipate the same political and religious freedom which was theirs under preceding governments.

The virtues of the Jewish people were praised by the Premier, who said he is aware of their fealty to the country. He said that he will attempt in every way to assure these rights to the Jews, and added that he will not tolerate friction between one section of the population and another. He pledged his aid in obtaining a substantial grant for the continued support of Jewish schools in Bulgaria.
