Order, issued by the Danish Chancellery [Present-day Denmark, Norway]: “Ordered: that no apparent assemblies among the German Jews may be held in any place other than that which they have procured to hold their worship, unless this occurs within the scope of a special royal dispensation.” [Researcher’s note: In 17th- and 18th-century Denmark, Ashkenazi Jews were known as “German Jews,” while Sephardi Jews were referred to as “Portuguese Jews.” For information on the differences between the two, see “Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews,”, by Menachem Posner.]
