Jewish Communities of Romania: Statutes of Israelite Community of Făgăraș


This folder contains pages from the statutes of the Jewish community of Făgăraș. The last pages are missing and as such it is impossible to date the statutes exactly, though they state that they are in accordance with laws passed in 1929, so they were made sometime after that date. The statutes do not explicitly state that the community is Orthodox or Neologue, but instead say it is an "autonomous congressional community based on the Shulchan Aruch" - this is generally the formulation used by Orthodox communities in their statutes. The statutes include all customary regulations of community life including member qualifications, dues, election regulations, staff responsibilities and so forth.
