Disgrifiad

Letter to Max Caller from the Trustees of the Newport (MON) Hebrew Congregation dated 25 June 1979. The letter deals with a request on behalf of Max Caller's grandfather to return his Safer Torah to him in Israel. The letter also expresses thanks for the donation of 20 prayer books to the Newport (MON) Hebrew Congregation.

Newport Monmouthshire Hebrew Congregation was founded in 1859 by orthodox Jews meeting at a temporary synagogue in Llanarth Street. A synagogue at Francis Street was opened in 1869 and consecrated by the Chief Rabbi Dr Herman Adler in 1871. In 1934 the congregation moved to the Nathan Harris Memorial Hall in Queen's Hill which was converted to a synagogue. In 1997 this synagogue was closed, and the congregation moved to the Prayer House by the Jewish Burial Ground on Risca Road. Within 20 years the congregation had dwindled to a few members able to attend and this too had ceased to hold services.
