Persons who have left the Jewish community, declaring that they do not wish to be affiliated with any religious denomination, will be refused burial in the Jewish cemetery.

The decision to prohibit the burial in the Jewish cemetery of the Konfessionslose, was taken by the Vienna Kehillah Board.

Gifts of $5,000 by Mortimer Schiff and $3,000 by Felix M. Warburg were announced by Judge Francis X. Mancuso chairman of the committee raising a $2,000,000 fund to erect a new building for the Italian Hospital.
