The Synagogue municipality of Zündorf becomes independent  
When in 1901 the office of mayor in Mülheim had been separated from the administrative district Mülheim, a change to the statute of the synagogue municipality of Mülheim was made. Because only a few Jewish citizens lived there, the administrative district intended no separation in two groups because from 56 Jewish citizens only 12 male ones contributed to the cult costs.

On May 12th 1902 the new statute was resolved – in dependence to the statute of the synagogue municipality in Cologne-Ehrenfeld; included was the decision that the synagogue from now on will be called „synagogue to Zündorf“. Further it was determined that the synagogue municipality had to elect a synagogue director who should be the representative of the particular synagogue. It must not be any, but a local person. The directorate and the members of the representative's meeting (among others, two people from Zündorf) signed this statute. After long negotiations it was signed by the president of the rhine-province on the November 3rd 1902; it came into effect on the January 1st 1903.

Primarily the Cologne government decided that the Jewish school-age-children had to attend Jewish religious classes in a Jewish elementary school or by private teachers.

Because it was necessary to train academically trained religious teachers and rabbis, Europe and in the United States offered special seminars for this purpose. Except for the school in Budapest these seminars had originated from own and private initiative and covered its contributions from donations. Thus, e.g. professor Dr. Alexander Haindorf founded the Marks-Haindorfsche endowment in 1825 to educate teachers and support craftworks among the Jews. This seminar was a reformatory as well as a teaching institution. On 9/13/1824 there was a decree of the Cologne head of government which initiated that all Jewish children who don’t visited a Jewish municipality had to take part in classes of Christian schools (§§ 8-11). In the small municipality of Zündorf the children had to take part in the first religious classes in pre-school age already. This probably took place in their family circle and at the age of five years there were Bible-classes as well.

In 1886 the office of mayor in Wahn and Heumar granted the costs for the religious classes for the Jewishs children Zündorf. With reference to the allowed aid for the Jewish children for the religious classes, a proposal for aid for Protestant children’s classes was made in 1895, because the Protestant church wasn’t able to and didn’t want to pay for those expenses. A proposal, made by the chief of synagogue municipality in Zündorf was rejected, because the least number of twelve pupils had not been reached.

In 1911 another application was made and granted; the aid amounted to 60 Reichsmark.

Obviously many members of the Jewish municipality in Zündorf weren't wealthy. Out of 26 parishioners only five were able to pay their contribution to the cult costs; interest was often remitted or lowered; widow Aaron Cahn from Niederzündorf and Sara Moses received 3.00 RM from the fund for the poor.
