Ovde je opisana u kratkim crtama, istorija jevrejske zajednice u južno-banatskom gradu Vršcu u vreme od 1716-1941. god., kada je najveći deo te populacije uništen. Poseban naglasak stavljen je na verski deo prošlosti, tj. na dolazak prvih rabina i njihovu delatnost.
The paper deals with the history of Jews in the north-Banat town of Vršac in the period from 1716 to 1941. It is important that the paper uses archive materials or old memoirs written more than 100 years ago. It is of special significance that use was made of archive documents from the Romanian city of Timisoara, and of the relevant literature. Special attention was paid to the religious aspects of this past, including the arrival of the first rabbis and other religious officials and the building of the synagogue and school. The paper also presents significant information regarding the personal reputation of the rabbis, their education and generally their work in the domain of general culture. There is an important note on establishing friendly relations with the Indian poet Rabindranath Tagore, and his attempts to assist the European Jews after the first mention of threats that became manifest after the rise of the national-socialists to power in Germany.
