Order, issued by the Danish Chancellery to the Town Councils of Denmark and Norway [Present-day Denmark, Norway]: “Concerning the prohibition of March 23, 1725, against Christian women under 50 years being servants to Jews: this prohibition is abolished; however, the Jews, under harshest punishment, must not persuade any Christians in their service of their Jewish beliefs, nor keep them from going to church, nor compel Christian servants to do any other work on sabbaths and feast days than on the other days, nor serve in their [Jewish] ceremonies; moreover, on their Day of Atonement, and when they keep Passover, they shall give a food allowance to their Christian servants, so that they should neither fast nor be kept from sour bread and beer. As this order is strict and must be fulfilled in every way, all the Christian servants who are now or hereafter in the service of any Jews must be properly rostered. To that end, the elders of the Jewish nation shall report, every Michaelmas and Easter, to the magistrate, the chief of police, and the priest in whose parish the Jew lives, the number of Christian servants among the Jews, as well as their names, and whom they serve.” [Researcher’s note: In Western Christianity, Michaelmas falls on September 29.]
