"Donation of Elijah Levi Halevi to commemorate that in the day 27 Elul (5)609= (1849) at the time that we were in a great mourning in the synagogue after the death of our master the king Carlo Alberto, the righteous of blessed memory, the noise of the arrows of the steel bow strengthens greatly in the honour and the respect of the royalty."

36 Summary and Remarks

This coronet commemorates the death of King Carlo Alberto, who granted equal civil rights to the Jews in Northern Italy. His acts were significant for Jewish life in that period and were celebrated on several occasions and in various ways around Piedmont. Hebrew inscriptions adorned the synagogues of Casale Montferrato, among them three were dedicated to the emancipation of the Jews during Alberto's reign. The most noteworthy inscription is set beside the Torah Ark: 

"התר"ה/ ביום כ"ד אדר שני/ המלך קרלו אלברטו/ וביום י"ח סיון/ עדת מחוקקים העם/ גזרו אומר/ לקרא דרור אל כל היהודים אשר במלכות/ למען ישכחו/ אוון ועמל חקקי קדם/ והיו בני חורים בארץ מולדתם/ ובאהבתה ישגו תמיד/ ק"ק קסאלי/ הרים ה מצבה הזאת למופת דור ודור."

"(The year) 5605 - on the 24th of the second Adar (April, 2, 1845), the King Carlo Alberto, and on the 18th of Sivan (23.6.1845), the Parliament decided to liberate all the Jews in the Kingdom. (This decision was taken) in order that they would forget the evil and persecutions (hard labour) of the earlier Rulers and so they will be free people in their own land and will always prosper with its love. This memorial was (dedicated by) the Holy congregation of Casale, as a model to be remembered evermore, from generation to generation."

An additional plaque commemorating the same event also appears on the synagogue wall in Saluzzo.

Moreover, the synagogue's ceiling was adorned with the Royal family emblem, above the Torah ark, which reinforces the importance of this declaration to Piedmontese Jewry (fig. 2).

The Jewish community of Turin commemorated Alberto's death by painting their fabulous Torah Ark in black.

36 Summary and Remarks

This coronet commemorates the death of King Carlo Alberto, who granted equal civil rights to the Jews in Northern Italy. His acts were significant for Jewish life in that period and were celebrated on several occasions and in various ways around Piedmont. Hebrew inscriptions adorned the synagogues of Casale Montferrato, among them three were dedicated to the emancipation of the Jews during Alberto's reign. The most noteworthy inscription is set beside the Torah Ark: 

"התר"ה/ ביום כ"ד אדר שני/ המלך קרלו אלברטו/ וביום י"ח סיון/ עדת מחוקקים העם/ גזרו אומר/ לקרא דרור אל כל היהודים אשר במלכות/ למען ישכחו/ אוון ועמל חקקי קדם/ והיו בני חורים בארץ מולדתם/ ובאהבתה ישגו תמיד/ ק"ק קסאלי/ הרים ה מצבה הזאת למופת דור ודור."

"(The year) 5605 - on the 24th of the second Adar (April, 2, 1845), the King Carlo Alberto, and on the 18th of Sivan (23.6.1845), the Parliament decided to liberate all the Jews in the Kingdom. (This decision was taken) in order that they would forget the evil and persecutions (hard labour) of the earlier Rulers and so they will be free people in their own land and will always prosper with its love. This memorial was (dedicated by) the Holy congregation of Casale, as a model to be remembered evermore, from generation to generation."

An additional plaque commemorating the same event also appears on the synagogue wall in Saluzzo.

Moreover, the synagogue's ceiling was adorned with the Royal family emblem, above the Torah ark, which reinforces the importance of this declaration to Piedmontese Jewry (fig. 2).

The Jewish community of Turin commemorated Alberto's death by painting their fabulous Torah Ark in black.
