“Notice of the Board of Parnassim of the Amsterdam Portuguese Commmunity, Announcing Measures to Prevent Begging and Improper Conduct During Funeral Services at the Community's Cemetery in Ouderkerk.” The lower line reads: "By Order of the Above-Mentioned Parnassim: Jb. van Raphl. Jessurun Cardozo, Secretary." Gans (Memorbook p. 315) provides a cameo portrait of Jacob van Raphaël Jessurun Cardozo (1792-1869), who was appointed Cantor of the Portuguese community in 1812, and continued to serve in that capacity until 1847. See Lydia Hagoort, Het Beth Haim in Ouderkerk aan de Amstel (Hilversum, 2005), pp. 229-30 and 238.
