At least 10 small Ashkenazic congregations will be absorbed by larger ones in their vicinity, according to a decision announced Sunday by the central committee of the Netherlands Ashkenazic congregations.

There are about 40 Ashkenazic congregations in Holland. The decision applies to those with fewer than 25 members which are no longer able to provide themselves with required facilities.
