Background: West German President Luebke opened an exhibition of Jewish religious regalia, November 3, at Recklinghausen's Art Hall. Jewish religious organizations from all over the world have sent items and garments for display, many of them several centuries old.
Jewish visitors are expected from many parts of the world for the exhibition, open until January 15. On the opening day a large crowd was on hand to see President Luebke perform the ceremony. Later on a tour of the exhibition, he showed much interest in many of the ancient items displayed.
One of the items on display is a bust of King David, carved in 1470. A model of a complete wooden Polish synagogue has been built inside the hall. It contains all the items required for a service.
