"In Eternal Memory: This building was built in Memory of the Jewish Communities in China by Igud Yotzei Sin in Israel. The construction of the building was possible thanks to the Administrator General and Official receiver of the State of Israel, who handed over the proceeds received from the sale of the Synagogue in Shanghai and through the generous donations from the former residents of China in Israel and all over the world. The building was set thanks to the great devotion extended by the President of the Building Committee, Mr. M. A. Zaigraeff. The inauguration of the skeleton of the building took place on the 20th August 1959. The inauguration of the opening of the building took place on 6th September 1961. Architects & Building plans: Mr. G. Rabinovitch, Mr. A. Kahane, Aron Kodesh."

Sanzetti Photo Studio on inside of rear board. Minor age toning on title-page and on margin of card stock. Near fine condition. Unique copy. vg. Item #24786
