75th Anniversary 1905 - 1980

Message from The Chief Rabbi
Dr. Immanuel Jakobovits

I am happy to extend my warmest greetings to the Bournemouth Hebrew Congregation, now celebrating its 75th anniversary.

Bournemouth occupies a special place in the affections of Anglo-Jewry.  It is not only famous as a holiday resort with all the necessary amenities for observant Jews, but it has become recognised as one of the active and growing kehillot of Anglo-Jewry.

In this, your synagogue has played a major role.  You have promoted interest in all aspects of current Jewish endeavour and concern. In addition to education and all traditional synagogue activities, you have included work on behalf of Soviet Jewry, participation in defence, active membership of the Board of Deputies and promotion and maintenance of a full range of welfare institutions.

It would be hard to find other communities of similar size who have such a proud record not only in terms of past history but also in future prospects.  For you have the good fortune to be able to look back on your achievements since your inception, and you can also look forward to sustained interest by your children and youth.

I would also like to pay personal tribute to Rabbi Silberg and all your spiritual leaders through the decades who have guided and inspired your members.  I would also like to congratulate your wardens and honorary officers who conduct the affairs of the community so ably and devotedly. Finally, to all your members and all associated with your synagogue I offer my greetings and my blessings for their good health and wellbeing, imbued with a spirit of Torah and Jewish learning, strengthened by loyal adherence to the sacred traditions of our people.
