1-3. Three photographed calendars for the years 1960-1961,1962 - 1963,1965-1966. Photocopies were made from handwriting of each calendar with "Happy New Year" greetings in hebrew on the covers. On the cover of the calendar for 1965 is a photograph of the Great Choral Synagogue in St. Petersburg, Russia. Extremely rare.

And a photograph of the foreground of the "Choir" synagogue in Moscow. In the first pages, "Prayer for Peace" appears, and "Prayer for the Peace of the Government" - for the peace of the USSR government. The calendar itself is in Yiddish and Russian.
