The title of the book has the date 1863, however there has been appended a later Reglement from the year 1876 (pp.185-190) and a Reglement of the congregation's religious school from the year 1877 (pp.193-197), as well as a curriculum of the religious school prepared by Chief Rabbi Dr. Joseph H. Dünner from that year (pp.198-202). Dünner was Chief Rabbi of North Holland Province between the years 1874-1911. Gans provides a facsimile of a comparable Reglement der Nederlandsch Israelitische Gemeente te Boxmeer from the following year, 1864. See M.H. Gans, Memorbook (1977), p.535. Freimann (p. 293) has a later edition of Reglementen en verordeningen der Nederlandsch-Israëlitische Hoofdsynagoge te Amsterdam from the year 1924
