Royal order, issued by the Danish Chancellery [Present-day Denmark]: “Granting that the German Jewish nation in Copenhagen may in some cases use their light ban: His Majesty, after reviewing their most submissive application and request, has most graciously granted and permitted the enlightened German Jewish nation, having established itself in Copenhagen, to use the light, or mild and gentle ban, which in the Hebrew language is known by the name of ‘herem issur’, but by no means the two sharp bans, namely the middle and the large, though the aforementioned Jews must only utilize the above-mentioned mild and gentle ban in cases regarding the adequacy of their congregations, the usual practice of their ceremonies and religions, the wages and maintenance of their schools and cemeteries, as well as the wages of the servants, as well as the collection of alms.”
