Chief Rabbi in Spitalfields for Sandys Row Synagogue’s 160th anniversary

Sandys Row celebrated the 160th anniversary of our community with the induction of our first full-time rabbi for several decades Rabbi Mendy Korer, who was inducted at Sandys Row in July 2015 by Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis who said of the synagogue: “This is an outstanding example of how a community can impressively withstand the test of time.” Synagogue president Harvey Rifkind said: “Our doors have not closed in more than 160 years and we take pride in doing everything we can to make sure this beautiful site remains an active part of London’s East End.” For more on this historic event visit: in-spitalfields- for-sandys-row-synagogue- s-160th- anniversary-1- 4151481
