The German branch of Progressive Judaism is threatening to sue the German government. The branch says it is illegal for the government to support only the Central Council of Jews in Germany. In January 2003, German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder signed a historic agreement with the Central Council, in which the $3 million the government gives annually to the Central Council is supposed to provide for all streams of Judaism that accept matrilineal descent.
