In accordance with the new Reich laws denying Jews the right of citizenship in Germany, the Central Verein of German Citizens of Jewish Faith today changed its name to Central Verein of Jews in Germany.

Unknown persons today stoned the building of the Zionist Organization, Meinekestrasse 10, demolishing the signs of the Keren Hayesod, the Zionist Federation and the Judische Rundschau, Zionist periodical. The building itself was undamaged.
