Foundation of the “Chevre Kedische” association in Ruppichteroth

In December 1900, the Jews of Ruppichteroth founded an association with the aim of building their own synagogue. Although they belonged to the Nümbrecht synagogue community, due to the increasing number of Jewish fellow citizens in the town, they wanted to build their own prayer house “in order to be able to hold a service according to the rules.” The first chairman was Simon Gärtner.

However, the association was only able to raise the necessary funds and permits to build its own synagogue after the First World War. In addition to the “Chevre Kedische”, to which the men belonged, there was also an “Israelite Women’s Association Ruppichteroth and Waldbröl”, which campaigned for families in need.
