This is a certificate from the Matrikelamt of the Israelitische Kultusgemeinde in Vienna - i.e. the office of the registers of the Jewish community in Vienna - signed by a "beeideter Matrikelf├╝hrer" which means an employee of the community who was a sworn clerk.
The document bears two Austrian (fiscal) stamps (upper left corner) and a stamp for a tax in Reichsmark which would have been introduced by the Germans who had occupied Austria recently (lower left corner).
