Expressions of thanks to the Jewish population of Roumania for their hearty and patriotic participation in the Greater Roumania celebrations, just concluded throughout the country, were contained in an official communique issued by the Ministry of Interior.

The communique expressed the hope that the relations between the government and the Jewish population will continue to be in the future the best possible.

The insult to the Jewish delegation which came to participate in the exercises at Buzeau still continues to hold the attention of the public. The member of the government, Vlad, replying to the interpellation of Chief Rabbi Niemerower, representing the Jewish religion in the senate, stated that the government has no disciplinary authority over the higher officials of the Church. The matter should be dealt with by the Synod. Bishop Ghenadie, who abruptly called the Jewish delegation at Buzeau to leave the platform, in an address delivered yesterday, replied to the Jewish protest. According to the program of the Buzeau celebration, he said, as prearranged, it was to be an Episcopal ceremony, and the participation of the Jews was not at all expected.
