A poster for a treasure hunt held by the Cardiff New Synagogue (now known as the Cardiff Reform Synagogue) in order to raise funds for the Leo Baeck College in London. The hunt was to take place on Sunday, 19 July. No year is indicated; however, between 1948 and 1990, 19 July was Sunday in 1959, 1964, 1970, 1981, and 1987.

The Cardiff Reform Synagogue was founded in 1948 as the Cardiff New Synagogue. The following year, it became a constituent member of the Movement for Reform Judaism. Born in reaction against the more restrictive traditions of the Orthodox Judaism of Cardiff Hebrew Congregation, such as the prohibition of driving on the Sabbath and the ban on interfaith marriages, the new Synagogue appealed to the immigrants who had fled the war-torn Europe, where the Reform movement was already well-established. The congregation worships in a converted Methodist Chapel on Moira Terrace they acquired in 1952.
