Luxembourg Jewry

Currently in (a rather cold) Luxembourg City for a weekend with my wonderful wife. Having spent various fleeting visits here over the last twenty or so years - usually passing through during my many relief trips to Eastern Europe as the Iron Curtain came down - this is one of those rather unusual European places I rather like. Part of the fascination is the nature of this tiny principality... I've always been fascinated with such places, for example Andorra, Monaco, Gibraltar and Liechtenstein.

Recently, though, I've become aware of the small Jewish presence here, which is nonetheless important for several reasons despite its tiny size. So I just wondered, apart from the standard Wiki and general web info, can anyone recommend me some decent sources on Luxembourger Jewry. Would also be interested to learn if there is a Messianic movement of sorts here. Thanks.
