Refit

HARROGATE HEBREW CONGREGATION has had a major refit costing tens of thousands of pounds in time for the Yom tovim.  This included a new parquet floor and new furniture in the Stanley Burton banqueting hall. There were also roof repairs to the main building and the succah. Additionally there was an upgrade to the shul’s flat and toilet facilities.  Secretary Phillip Morris said: “To those who know us we are haven in the heart of Harrogate. The Synagogue is delighted to have been in such a strong financial position to carry out a large programme of works for the benefit of the congregation.

“We are blessed to enjoy a beautiful, traditional civil service and very friendly community, with kiddushim every Shabbat,” he added. “We look forward to welcoming the usual influx of guests in even more splendid surroundings."  The synagogue attract members and guests from a wide surrounding area, including those those from the recently closed Bradford synagogue. The shul now has a diverse cohort of ministers on its Shabbat rota to lead the service, who are able to spend the weekend in the synagogue flat with their families.

Mr Morris said: “We have started our regular services a little later at 10 am and this has proved popular, resulting in increased attendance.  We are delighted to welcome newcomers and familiar faces through our doors.”
