“Het Spinoza,” the society to preserve the house in Rijnsburg, near Leyden, where the Jewish philosopher Spinoza lived from 1670-1673 and where he is believed to have written his “Ethica,” is urgently soliciting funds to repair the structure, which is reported in a state of collapse. The group is seeking private donations.
