ca. 1630

“Jewish-Ordinance” issued by the Council of the Imperial City of Wimpfen,* year 1630 [Imperial City of Wimpfen; Present-day Germany] [Provisional]: “[…] schools and synagogues may not be built [anywhere in the city while] private gatherings (of Jews) to pray are allowed. […]” [Researcher’s note: *This Jewish Ordinance of Wimpfen is basically a renewal of the 1598 and 1626 Jewish ordinances of Wimpfen – except, this ordinance explicitly prohibits Jews from building new schools and/or synagogues.]
