Rescript, issued by the Danish Chancellery [Present-day Denmark]: “A Jew, should he be chosen as superintendent, shall only take part in the superintendent’s administrative and associated accounting tasks, but not in the supervision of the education of minors, as such should arise, and since this supervision is thus reserved for the vice superintendent, it is therefore obvious that two confessors of the Mosaic religion could not be superintendents at the same time.”
