The Head of the Inner Security services

29th of August 1940.

Having examined the application of Jewish Cultural Society ‘’Licht’’ and data, that were given by the organization on the 28th of August, 1940, we consider the activity of the below-given organizations not to correspond to interests of working people and continuation of their activity in the condition of the new social system is needless. That is why according to the corresponding articles of law we resolve to close the following Jewish organizations and withdraw their appellations out of the register:

  1. Narva Jewish Youth Literary Circle
  2. Jewish Cultural and Educational Association “Tarbut”
  3. Association “Keren-Khaisod” (Basic fund) in Estonia
