UJA Mission Hails Religious Freedom Enjoyed by Rumanian Jews

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Prior to the departure of an 11-man United Jewish Appeal delegation for Israel yesterday, its leader, Edward Ginsberg, of Cleveland, said that the delegation was satisfied with the religious freedom enjoyed by the Rumanian Jewish community.

The group visited Rumania en route to Israel and met here with American diplomatic officials. It was received by Dmitru Dogaru, Rumanian Minister of Religious Affairs. The mission members attended Yom Kippur services at the Chorale Temple in Bucharest as the guests of Chief Rabbi Moses Rosen. Mr. Ginsberg addressed the congregation and conveyed greetings “from your brethren in America.”

The delegation expressed gratification over the friendly cooperation between the Federation of Jewish Communities of Rumania and the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee in the social welfare program the JDC established in Rumania.
