Jewish Communities Deny Polish Govt. Meddles in Religious Activities

The Central Committee of Jewish Religious Communities in Poland has publicly repudiated charges that the Polish Government had interfered in Jewish religious activities and asserted in a statement published in the Warsaw Yiddish daily, Folkshtimme, that “all religious needs of the Jews in Poland are being met. “

The statement, signed by Isaac Fraenkel, president of the committee, appeared in copies of the newspaper received here today. It asserted that every Jewish community in Poland has a mikvah (ritual bath), that 13 ritual slaughterers have been trained at Wroclaw and that any parent who wants his child to have a Jewish education can arrange it.
