Decree, issued by the Danish Chancellery to the Magistrate at Copenhagen [Present-day Denmark]: “Regarding whether a widow of the Mosaic faith, where the husband had converted to the Christian religion, should be considered eligible for public benefits: In such cases, the Copenhagen Magistrate shall be requested to make known to the representatives of the Mosaic faith community, that the member in question, by transferring to the Christian religion, must be presumed free to make any contribution to the services for the poor of the Mosaic community, as he, along with his family, in accordance with the Chancellery Decree of 9/4/1823, falls within the ordinary poverty system. On the other hand, after his death, his widow must be supported by the fund for the poor of the Mosaic faith community, just as she must also contribute to it.”
