Event: event between 1805 and 1847 Uithoorn The Uithoorn-protocol:
Protocol contains all details relating to purchase, renovation, consecration and maintanance of local synagogue. The protocol starts in 1805 with the establishment of the congregation and ends in 1847 [published by Odette Vlessing.]
"According to the manuscript the idea for a synagogue in Uithoorn surfaced during a circumcision ceremony conducted by the Amsterdam mohel Abraham Aron Prins of Alkmaar (c.1766-1821). The plan to turn the local Mennonite church into a synagogue wa s then born. Amsterdam's chief rabbi Jacob Mozes Lowenstamm consented after it was ascertained that the church had not actually been used for four years and contained nothing that would constitute an impurity for a synagogue such as graves. The ch urch was duly purchased on 1 June 1805. The transaction was conducted by mohel Abraham Aron Prins and his brother-in-law Samuel Levy together with Daniel Abraham Rachmonus, Aron Isaac Cohen and David Emanuel Kalker. All were prominent member s of Amsterdam's Ashkenazi Jewish community. Remarkably, besides handling the financial side, these five benefactors are repeatedly referred to as the synagogue's 'directors'. The Protocol actually contains the contract between these financiers an d the members of Uithoorn's jewish community. The contract clearly reveals the strong link that existed with the parent community in Amsterdam - the Uithoorn jews were wholly subject to the authority of Amsterdam'schief rabbi and that of its fiv e directors who were also resident there. In fact it was even arranged for the title deeds to the Uithoorn synagogue to be kept with the records of the Ashkenazi jewish community in Amsterdam. Although the terms and conditions of the purchase ar e reproduced in the Protocol the original deed of purchase can no longer be found in the archives of Amsterdam's jewish community. However, the records do show that there was a jewish presence in Uithoorn even before 1805.The Protocol contains th e community's bye-laws; these are signed by twenty-six members and a list of Amsterdam contributors, with pride of place taken by Jacob Abraham Levie (Jacob ben Eberle Levie Haag, The Hague, c.1732-1811). In 1761 Sandrina Salomons (Tzerula bat Aar on), born in Uithoorn, married the Hamburg widower Isaac Philip Hollander in Amsterdam at the age of thirty-five. The first chuppah in Uithoorn for which a ketubbah still survives took place on 10 Heshvan 5541 between Juda Leib ben Eberle Levie an d Gittele bat Juda Leib. The bridegroom's brother was Jacob ben Eberle Levie, probably the same person named in the manuscript as the principal benefactor. According to the records the synagogue's consecration feast on Sabbath Nachamu (15 Ab/9 Aug ust) and the day after (a Sunday) attracted many trippers from Amsterdam and the surrounding area. The festivities made such a deep impression that they were reported in the chronicle kept by Bendit ben Eizek Wing (Le-zikoron, 1795-1812). The syna gogue suffered storm damage at the end of 1836 but was restored. The necessary funds were raised in Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam, Gouda and elsewhere. Although the actual restoration was completed in 1838, the financial side was not entirely se ttled until 1847. Samuel ben Abraham is responsible for the fine calligraphy on the early pages of the manuscript. The languages in this section are Hebrew and Yiddish, although later on we do see entries in Dutch. For the same occasion Samuel be n Abraham also produced an equally exquisite work of calligraphy on a sheet of parchment (HS. ROS. PL. B-81). this work consisted of prayers and texts in honour of David Emanuel Kalker, one of the synagogue's five directors, and the text was parti ally reproduced in the Protocol (fol.39v-40) by Abraham Aron Prins himself. The Bibliotheca Rosenthaliana purchased the Protocol from J.H.Davids of Haarlem for fifty guilders in1933. This fine manuscript is an important source of information abou t the early history and composition of Uithoorn's jewish community and its links with other jewish communities in the Netherlands.
