Some history of the Feldinger Chabad Jewish Center
In 2012 this became the first synagogue to be inaugurated in Basel in 80 year, and was sponsored by Mr. Sami Rohr in honor of the Feldingers, a Basel Jewish family who personally sheltered him during World Was II.

Mr. Rohr's family had fled Lyon in unoccupied France in 1943 and was smuggled into Switzerland. When his parents were taken to a refugee camp in Morgin, Mr. Rohr was sent to a children's home near Basel. Soon after, some members of Basel's Jewish community took the refugee children home to care for them. Rohr was welcomed wholeheartedly into the home of Shlomo Zalman and Recha Feldinger, who treated him as a complete equal among their children.
