The Jewish population share in the past has played a prominent role in the local community, both in the middle and in the working population. This project was finalized on September 15, 2013 with its inauguration by Chief Rabbi Jacobs. Through the walks around the places of Remembrance Stones are also taken by Wageningen. A booklet outlining the background of all the Remembrance Stone described and their location is shown in the works and will be ready for July 1, 2015. Another major project is the inventory of the old Jewish cemetery, which is now a national monument.
