This newspaper clipping from The Jewish Chronicle contains the obituary of Lilian Wise by her daughter Linda Susan Samuel. Ms Wise is best remembered for her philanthropic work as well as a co-founder of the Welsh National Opera Company together with Inglois Evans.
The small and relatively short-lived Tonypandy Hebrew Congregation was established in the 1890s and disappeared in the 1930s. The congregation was never big enough to warrant a purpose-built synagogue and it worshipped instead at rented houses in several different locations. At its heyday in the 1920s, the congregation had around 180 members.
