Rescript, issued by the Danish Chancellery to the Magistrate at Copenhagen [Present-day Denmark]: “The Jews may be allowed to proceed with the construction of a building that includes a designated assembly hall, but only under the terms that the basement as well as the lower floor are actually permanently vacant, and that only the hall will be reserved for the Jews and their intended use of it. With regard to the position of their servants, the Chief of Police must carefully investigate whether the Jews intend to let any synagogue officers, such as a rabbi or cantor, dwell in this house, under the excuse that they are only renting the rooms in the same; this shall not be allowed, since it could give the impression that the Jews have gained greater liberties than they have hitherto.”
