|Amplissime Magistratus Domini mihi gratiosissimi!
Grave illud tam meo, quam totius communitatis nostre Mosaica Religioni addicta isthic in gremio existentis per actualem Judaici Tracterii arendatorem Lazarum Rosenzveig hujus itme vite sociam Esteram honori illatum prejudicium silentio preterire haud possum. Enim vero preallatus Lazarus Rosenzveig coram gremialibus Judeis: Moyse nimirum Hecht, Isaaco Flachner et Volfgango Schön, nec non filiis familias gremialium Judeorum Davidis quippe Hollender et Simeonis Hay non formidavit his formalibus uti: quod is totam gremialem Judaicam Communitatem e gremio Civitatis hijus exterminaturus sit. Conthoralis vero ejus Estera perinde his formalibus usa est: quod ea totam Judaicam Communitatem s.v. pomerdet.
Inquieti genuii ha dua persona nec quidem tolerata adeo insolescunt, ut nec mihi qua eorundem Judici obedire velint, nec regulis humanitatis et honestatis regi possint – quid plus etiam Commissarii nostri perillustris ac generosi domini Mathia Jozits paterna monita spernunt. Exemplo est, quod cultrum sacrificularem toties memoratis Rosenzveig quamvis multoties admonitus et inhibitus deponere recuset; quin imo non tantum ipse- verum eidem adlataratus discipulus etiam animalia sacrificent – ubi extra Ordinarium conventionatum sacrificulum nec pro suis necessitatibus cuidam ex nostratibus hoc Magisterio fungi integrum haud sit.
Quare Amplissimo Magistratui nomine etiam totius communitatis nostre demisse supplex sum – quatenus prememoratum quassatorem – ejus item consortem juri statutos penes exauditionem presitorum testium peraeque ad figuram A. Magistratus statuendorum – Instantionaliumque delionestationem notitiam habeantium - in singillativis poenis emenda lingua convincere una vero sacrificularem cultrum cujus illicito exercitio distinetur – ab eodem adimendum decernere ac horum omnium intuitu Exequendorum executionem ordinere dignaretur. Gratiosis in reliquo favoribus ….commendatus jugi cum venerationis cultu perenuo.

|The Exalted Magistrate, esteemed gentlemen!
I personally, and the entire Jewish community of this city, found it very difficult to bear the insult of the part and the ugly words sent to us by the tenant of the Jewish inn, Lazar Rosentzveig, and his life companion Ester, and I cannot remain silent about that. Namely, the mentioned Lazar Rosentzveig without witnesses Moyse Hecht, Isaac Flachner and Volfgang Schön, as well as before the sons from the Jewish families David Hollender and Simeon Hay, without any shame said that he would darken the entire Jewish community in this city, and his wife literally said: "I'm shitting on the whole Jewish community."
These are two problematic people whose behavior can no longer be tolerated, especially since they do not listen to me as a judge of the Jewish community, nor are they able to behave humanely and honorably - especially since they have completely ignored the fatherly warnings of our most glorious and merciful commissioner Mr. MathiaJozits. An example of this is the fact that the mentioned Rosentzveig possesses a ritual knife and, although he has been warned many times not to do so, he and his apprentice constantly slaughter ritual animals themselves - which is forbidden and completely inconsistent with our customs and regulations, since that they should not do so even for their personal needs.
Therefore, I am free to ask, on behalf of the entire Jewish community, the High Magistrate to bring the Rosentzveig and his wife into question and impose appropriate punishments for their crimes, and, if at all possible, to officially prevent them from further slaughtering ritual animals and forcing them to adhere to established rules and regulations. With due respect and always at your service,
In Sombor, on May 30th, 1822
To the Exalted Magistrate
Judge of the Jewish Community
On behalf of the entire Jewish community
It was decided that the people mentioned in this document make statement on the issue. In the Senate of the City of Sombor, on June 7th, 1822.
Issued by Joannem Lippay, authorized City Notary
To the Exalted Magistrate of the Free Royal City of Sombor - esteemed gentleman
Lawrence Herceg, a judge of the members of the community of the Moses faith, humbly request on behalf of his entire community that Lazar Rosentzveig, the current tenant of the Jewish inn, and his life companion Esther be punished for verbal insults to the Jewish community and accused of violating the first decree to the right to use a ritual knife and slaughter ritual animals.
