Mar. 5, 1796

“Royal Court Decree” issued by the Austrian Royal Court [Present-day Austria, Czech Republic; House of Habsburg-Lorraine]: “Considering that the mourning and prayer days observed by the dominant religion are not to be disturbed by other religious parties/members, the Jews are to be prohibited to dance and play music on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday during Purim with the addition that they are still free to gather outside (‘Luftbarkeit’) as it is customary during Purim. However, it goes without saying that in such a case, as well, the event is to be reported/announced to the local police authorities [beforehand].” [Researcher’s note: The word ‘Luftbarkeit’ is no longer in use in modern German. The word appears to be referring to an outside gathering, covered possibly by a protective awning of some kind for commencements.]
