Bij de Kruikjes (at the jugs, i.e., near a house where the stone tablet in the facade showed six jars or stone bottles) is the name of a Mennonite congregation in Amsterdam, Holland. It belonged to the Old Flemish branch, also called "Huiskoopers", or "Dantsikers" (Danzig Old Flemish), and it met here from 1620 to 1788. They merged with the Amsterdam Zonist  congregation on 1 January 1789. The last preachers of the congregation "bij de Kruikjes" were: Cornelis Focking, serving after 1767 (d. 1791), Jan Christiaan Sepp  after 1781 (d. 1811), Abraham Tieleman after 1786 (d. 1820). They became the preachers of the Zonist congregation at the time of merging. Before this congregation began to meet here in 1620, this meetinghouse had apparently been used by another Old Flemish congregation from 1586 on.
