Re: Database of Rabbinical Certificates from 1921 Bucharest? #rabbinic #romania

Excuse my ignorance but what exactly is a rabbinical certificate? 
Rabbi Tsirelson was Chief Rabbi of Bassarabia. That region was part of Romania during 1920-1944 (except ~1940), the rest of the time it was part of Russia/USSR. And it appears that he was in Bucharest in the 1921-22 period as member of the Parliament: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yehuda_Leib_Tsirelson

You may want to inquire with CSIER , they seem to keep to at least part of the Jewish Community Archives: http://csier.ro/index.php/arhiva. The other organization that may keep some archives is the Federation of Jewish communities themselves aka FCER (https://www.jewishfed.ro/). Both orgs also have FB pages. I'm not sure though whether they do this type of individual research. 
Wish you luck and please update regarding their response.
