Visit to the London Central Synagogue Wednesday March 7th
An opportunity to visit another place of worship
We have arranged a group guided visit to the Central Synagogue at 11.30 am on Wednesday March 7th.
The Central Synagogue has been in Great Portland Street, London, in one form or another for more than 155 years. Today’s synagogue was rebuilt and reconsecrated in 1958, after the original building was destroyed in a bombing raid on 10 May 1941.
The history of the Central Synagogue is an integral part of the proud history of Anglo-Jewry. It has played a noble part in the life and activities of the Jewish Community here in London. Its archives are full of outstanding figures who have contributed enormously to the welfare and prosperity of the Jewish and wider community.
They are delighted to offer tours of their beautiful synagogue. As one of the oldest synagogues in London, the Central attracts visitors from far and wide throughout the year. This is a good opportunity to visit the building and see how Jews worship.
It is about a 15 minute walk from Oxford Circus. We shall meet at Orpington station at 9.45am and travel up by train.
