The first page of this document issued by Cardiff's New Synagogue shows a Shabbat prayer from 1 June 2002, to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II's Golden Jubilee, and is signed by Alfred Moritz in June 2002.

The next image shows the next two pages of the document in which Rabbi Jonathan Romain reflects on the "Jews and the Throne", giving a historical account of the often fraught relationship in history and highlighting the beneficial role the Queen and her family have played in improving inter-faith relations.

The reverse side of the document shows a transliterated version of the Shabbat hymn Adon Olam.

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.
