Ordinance #16088, issued by the Interior and Police Ministry of Prussia [Present-day Germany]: “While Jews may petition to move to and settle in a different province, and may be granted permission to do so by the Interior Ministry, even naturalized Israelites who have settled their affairs with their current synagogue-corporation, shall not automatically have their petition approved. For a successful petition, it is also necessary to prove that there are sound reasons for the resettlement, and that it will be to the benefit of the new place of residence.”
