It did not occur to me that launching this Web site
would soon be the cause of me receiving emails from people with
associations to shuls in the Stoke Newington/Stamford Hill/South Tottenham
areas. That being the case, I have decided to host this "Meeting
Place" page on this site which will include messages from such people -
just their own personal comments and memories, or seeking to get in touch
with long lost friends or classmates. If you have a story to tell or
a particular piece of shul history that you think others will enjoy,
please feel free to email me your account.

Please indicate whether you wish your comments to remain private or to be
posted on this page. In the case of the latter, and if you wish to
be contacted by visitors to this site, please include a preferred return
email address within the body of your message.
If anyone knows how I can contact artist Beverley-Jane
Stewart, please let me know.

To kick-off, here is the first message:
I was very interested to see the photograph of Northwold Road Synagogue
because I used to live near there. If you look at the photograph and
follow to the right where the building ends, I used to live exactly
opposite there. And I can also just see my school, which was High Street
School. Opposite the shul was Stapletons dairy, then some almshouses, and
I lived in the premises right next to the almshouses. We didn't go to
that shul, however. My brothers and I went to Lampard Grove cheder but I
also went to Egerton Road sometimes with my grandfather. I believe he
was a founder member of that shul.
