Download PDF for this date

A conference of Rumanian Jewish organizations was held here yesterday to set up legal machinery to assist Jews eligible for citizenship under the newly-promulgated law which grants citizenship to all persons living in what was Rumanian territory in 1920 and all deportees and repatriates from the USSR.

Anticipating a flood of applications, the conference decided to establish a network of legal advisory bureaus in Jewish communities throughout the country. It will also submit to the government suggestions concerning the procedure and execution of the various provisions of the law.
