Northwold Road Synagogue

Stoke Newington, London N16, England

בית הכנסת אהל ישראל 

 

Introduction

Shortly I will transcribe one or two speeches of my late father which give a potted history of the Northwold Road Synagogue and its predecessor shtibil.  The shtibil was located around the corner at 46 Brooke Road, by Stoke Newington commons, and was established in 1931.  The octagonally-shaped Northwold Road Synagogue occupied a former Methodist church.  The shul opened in September 1955 and closed 34 years later in September 1989.

My father kept a photographic archive of the shul (like father like son).

I also have a video of the shul with a conducted tour given by my father.  This was taken during one of my yearly trips to the UK in the '80s, when it was clear that the shul would close within a few years.  Selections from this video will be encoded later.

 מה־טבו אהליך יעקב משכנותיך ישראל

How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, thy dwelling places, O Israel!
