Download PDF for this date

In the city of Recklinghausen, at the northern edge of the industrial Ruhr region, a new synagogue seating sixty worshippers has been dedicated by the Jews of three cities in the area ??? Recklinghausen, Herne and Bochum. Since the total number of Jewish residents in the three cities and vicinity is below 100, they formed a single combined congregation.
