February 26, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Following a lengthy audience with King Ferdinard and as a protest against the Roumanian government’s apathy towards the recent anti-Semitic outbreaks in the Roumanian Universities engineered by Professor Cuza, Adolph Stern, President of the Jewish National Federation sent in his resignation to that body.

Stern is a prominent B’nai Brith leader and the ranking Jewish member of the Roumanian Parliament.

Fresh outbreaks against the Jews had occurred at Galatz and Temesvar despite the assurance of the government that they would be stopped, officials of the National Jewish Federation declare. A direct appeal to the political parties of Roumania to take up the fight in behalf of the Jews has been decided on by the Jewish organization. Protests are also being registered against the draft of the revised constitution, which does not contain the promised clauses for the complete enfranchisement of the Jews in Old Roumania.
