Deny Jewish Schools in Turkey Menaced by Heavy Taxation

Reports published abroad that Jewish schools in Turkey would be closed as a result of heavy taxation were declared without foundation today by H. Reisner, vice-president of the Jewish Community, in a statement to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

Mr. Reisner declared that far from being heavily taxed, the schools are benefiting from a Government grant of $50,000 to schools supported by minorities groups.

“The Jewish Community,” he said, “has nothing to be alarmed about with respect to its treatment by the Government.”
