Harrogate Synagogue

Holocaust Service - record turnout

Saturday 4th February, 8th Shevat saw our 14th Annual Holocaust Service officiated superbly by Rev. Gerald Harris who also delivered a poignant and meaningful sermon. Arek Hersh, Holocaust survivor retold his emotional experiences to a silent, visibly moved congregation of a record 150 members, guests and officials, including the Lord Lieutenant, Barry Dodds who spoke passionately about the occasion, Mayor, Councillor Nick Brown who delivered a superbly prepared speech, much commended by those present and MP Mr. Andrew Jones who further confirmed his full support and that of the Government for Holocaust Memorial Day. Also in attendance was Lt. Col Strickland and Commanding Officer of the Army Apprentice College and Ms Garrod, Chief of Menwith Hill. Many more visiting officials attended to show their support. There was unprecedented unified praise for the proceedings by those present.

The Boss!

The first visit of a current Chief Rabbi since 1925  - 

The highlight of 2016 was unequivocally when we had the privilege and honour of welcoming Chief Rabbi Mirvis for the first time on Sunday 4th December. Chief Rabbi Mirvis left Harrogate Synagogue members, guests and dignitaries captivated and enthralled when his chosen theme was ‘connections.’ He certainly connected with our shul as he promised the community that he will return when the shul celebrates its centenary in 2018, commenting, “I'm coming," to a delighted congregation.
