Detailed Description:   

Kabbalistic liturgies for Hoshanah Rabba, bought to press by Aaron du Kushta Abendana on behalf of the Honen Dal Society in The Hague.

Jewish settlement in The Hague dates to the seventeenth century and the arrival of a number of Portuguese Jewish diplomats, physicians, and merchants. The first Ashkenazic Jew to settle in The Hague, a ritual slaughterer, arrived in 1674. More Ashkenazic Jews followed during the 1680's.

By the final decades of the seventeenth century, two Portuguese Jewish congregations had been founded in The Hague. Both moved from location to location until permanent sites for their synagogues could be found. Congregation Beth Jacob consecrated a synagogue on the Korte Voorhout in 1707. Congregation Honen Dal consecrated its synagogue, located on the Princessegracht, in 1726. The two congregations joined together in 1743 under the name Honen Dal. The Ashkenazic community initially conducted their religious services in a private home. They opened their own synagogue on the Voldersgracht in 1723.

Despite the arrival of increasing numbers of Ashkenazic Jews, Portuguese Jews maintained control of local Jewish institutions. A degree of friction existed between the two groups. In 1694, Ashkenazic Jews purchased land for a cemetery on the present-day Scheveningseweg. From the start, Portuguese Jews also buried their dead in the cemetery but, by 1710, the Portuguese had pressured the Ashkenazim into dividing the cemetery into separate burial grounds for the two groups. During the same period, the provision and sale of kosher meat was mostly the realm of Ashkenazic Jews. Their prices included a tax to benefit the Ashkenazic poor. This practice was resented by the Portuguese but, in 1710, a solution was found.
