Summary

Towards the end of the 19th century many Jews qutted the run-down Jewish quarter in the old inner city and moved into the new working-class neighborhood of The Pipe (De Pijp). In 1892 a synagogue was built there, at 238 Gerard Doustraat, sponsored by the society Teshungat Israel (Help of Israel). This became a learning center where workers and intellectuals would meet for study.
