This folder contains the statutes of the Neologue community of Lugoj. The document appears to be a copy of the original; it is not clear when the copy was created. The statutes include all customary regulations of community life including member qualifications, dues, election regulations, staff responsibilities and so forth.

Ths folder contains a copy (perhaps a translation) of the original statutes, dated 1929, for the "Western Rite" (ie. Neologue) community of Sânnicolaul-Mare. The last page of the document is stamped by the "Office of Evacuated Jewish Communities in Timisoara" and signed off as "conforming [to the original]" so it seems likely the document is a World War II translation of the original Hungarian statutes. There is no indication as to where those original statutes are, however, or the date of this translation. The original was written in 1929 and approved by the governmental authorities in 1933. The statutes include all customary regulations of community life including member qualifications, dues, election regulations, staff responsibilities and so forth. These statutes explicitly state that the community is a member of the Union of Jewish Communities of Transylvania and Banat (Unirea Comunităților evreești din Ardeal și Banat) and are approved by the Union of Western Rite Jewish Communities of Transylvania and Banat (Uniunea Comunităților Evreești de rit occidental din Ardeal și Banat). Most likely the same union was meant and the discrepancy in name is a translation error. The statutes appear to indicate that the respective Neologue community was the only community in Sânnicolaul-Mare. Conditions are included within the statutes that would allow a sub-community, of a different rite, to open a prayer house. Please also see copies of later statutes from the Sânnicolaul-Mare Orthodox community, founded in 1936. This document is also part of the main Jewish Communities of Romania collection.

The Jewish Communities of Romania Collection (sometimes also described by the Romanian National Archives as the Documents Collection of the Jewish Communities of Romania) contains documents created and received by Jewish communities and organizations functioning in Romania from the 19th century to the first half of the 20th century.

The documents until World War II are composed of a variety of items reflecting community life, including statutes, correspondence, reports, and membership lists. Documents from the World War II period generally address the plight of Romanian Jews during this period. This material includes reports on persecutions and expropriations, correspondence and other documents related to deportees, and emigration paperwork. The post-World War II material generally deals with the repatriation of Jewish deportees to the Romanian-organized camps in Transnistria, the welfare of survivors, emigration, and the activities of the Federation of Jewish Communities in Romania and of the Jewish Democratic Committee (communist Jewish organization).

The headings and entries in this register book are in Hungarian, sometimes supplemental information regarding the individual's death is in Romanian. Information recorded includes name of child, names of parents, residence, date of birth, sex, legitimate or illigitimate, midwife name, mohel name and date of circumcision or name-giving (in the case of a girl), names of witnesses or godparents. Sometimes date and circumstances of death, marriage, or name change are also included. Entries are not always comprehensive. Due to state archival regulations, later birth entries may not be accessed. At the time of this survey, births until 1912 were accessible. The register itself apparently records births until 1950 (could not be verified). This book was created by Brasov's Neologue (reform) community. Please also see the birth book for the Ortodox Community.
