Mar. 17, 1744

“Royal Rescript” (‘königl. Rescriptum’) issued “on behalf of His Royal all-gracious Majesty’s special order”* and addressed to the Pomeranian War- and Domain-Chamber [Present-day Germany, Poland; Kingdom of Prussia]: “As per the royal ordinance issued in 1728, all Jews who live in the royal domains, must send deputies from each province along with 3 Rabbis every 5 years so that they come together and set up a new partition as to how the protection-, recruitment-, Montis pietatis (mountain pity) and calendar-fees are to be distributed [among themselves …].” [Researcher’s note: Signed in Berlin by v. Görne, v. Viereck, v. Happe, v. Boden who were all ministers under *Frederick William I of Prussia. Since the Jewish community was often required to make monetary contributions to the state as a whole, this meant that if single Jews were unable to make contribution of their own, others in their community had to make up for it.]
