Jewish Communities Law in Prussia Approved by State Council and {span}no#{/span} Goes to Parliament:

March 3, 1932
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Prussian State Council has adopted the modified text of the Jewish Communities Law submitted to it by the Prussian Government for the regulation of the affairs of the Jewish Communities of Prussia, under which the vote is granted to foreign Jews living in Germany, but leaving it to the individual Jewish Communities to use this power or to leave it as a dead letter.

The bill has now gone to the final instance, the Prussian Diet, where the Zionist representatives intend to make a fight for it to bring about a change in the law, so that foreign Jews should have the vote in all cases, without any Jewish community having the right to deprive them of it.
