This is one of a group of small pamphlets published by different institutions in the cities of Europe, particularly Amsterdam, are the type of material that tends to be very ephemeral. So, such booklets are rare. This one presents the constitution and by-laws of the Chevra Kadisha of Beit Midrash "Etz Chaim" belonging to the Ashkenazi community of Amsterdam.
