Sandysrowsynagogue


Located in the East End of London, the Sandys Row Synagogue is the oldest surviving Ashkenazi synagogue in London. Originally a church, it was purchased by a society of Dutch Jewish immigrants called the Hevrat Menahem Avalim Hesed v'Emeth (Society for Comfort of the Mourners, Kindness, and Truth) in 1867 and consecrated by the Haham, as the chief rabbi at the time was opposed to its establishment. For a while its membership declined - in the 1990s it nearly closed down as it struggled even to achieve a minyan - but it has in recent years been slowly increasing once more with a new Jewish generation moving back into the East End.
