Catholics Oppose Spending Money for Jewish Converts

September 18, 1923

Jews who desire to make easy their path to life by adopting Christianity will no longer be able to do so, if a movement started by a Catholic faction in Kiel is successful.

This group is opposing the collection of money by the Konsistorium for a Jewish mission. You can’t de-Judaize a man by religion, as Jewishness is more than faith, they contend, and a baptized Jew remains one, “internally”.
