Rabbi Schor, Self-appointed Chief Rabbi of Roumania, Criticized by Roumanian Jewish Paper

July 9, 1924
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Rabbi Chaim Schor, who, upon his recent arrival in the United States, described himself as the Chief Rabbi of Roumania, was severely criticized by the Jewish paper “Ujket” of Transylvania for denying the existence of an anti-Semitic movement in Roumania, as well as the occurrence of anti-Semitic excesses.

The paper quotes the statement of the “Chief Rabbi” that the Jews in Roumania occupy responsible positions in the government and army, do good business and are prominent leaders of society, declaring that the Rabbi apparently desires to flatter the Roumanian Government. “Such false statements, when circulated abroad, do much harm to the Jews of Roumania,” the paper concludes.
