of 150 Sunday night at Bnai
David Synagogue that the 180,-
000 Jews in Romania are per-
mitted to attend synagogues
and to send their children to
Talmud Torahs.
He spoke in Yiddish, inter-
spersed with rabbinic qu

no Zionist movement in Rom-

have emigrated.
"Certain customs still prevail
even in Bucharest, such as the
custom of "Shlagen Kapuros."
Before Yom Kippur, the Shoch-

sands of housewives stand in
line to get chickens killed. One

Kol Nidre Night. Would it be
all right to "Shlag Kapuros"
then?

"While the three Kosher
butcher shops sell about 6,000
kilos of meat a week during
the year, on Passover they
sell 30,000 kilos, because the
housewives want to keep
Kosher at least on Passover.
There is also a Matzo factory
in Romania."

Eighty per cent of the
people — the peasants — are
better off than in pre-War
days, he asserted. He de-
clared there is no discrimin-
ation, that Jews do not have
to put down their religion on
their identity cards and that
anti-Semites are punished.

"Anyone calling a Jew a
`Zhid' is liable to imprison-
ment," said Rabbi Rosen. He
also asserted there is little
intermarriage and that 80 pe
cent of the Jewish parents cir
cumcize their sons.
