Lay Cornerstone for Marranos’ Synagogue

Impressive ceremonies attended the laying of the cornerstone for the synagogue in Oporto which is being erected for the use of the Marranos who have officially returned to the Jewish faith.

The Marrano communities of Belmonte and Covilhan sent messages of congratulation to the president of the new Jewish community, Captain Barros Baston.

A large crowd filled the street Guerra Junquiero where the synagogue is to be erected.
