Cambridge Reform to build new synagogue
Cambridge Reform is to build a synagogue after a nomadic 25 years in the city.
The 250-member Beth Shalom congregation raised £500,000 to buy a 400-square metre city council site in central Cambridge.
Synagogue chairman Frank Harris said the community now needed to raise a further £1 million to fund construction of the premises. “A lot of work is still to be done,” he said.
A committee has been set up to oversee the building’s design, planning and construction and a local architect has been appointed.
The community, which currently holds services in local halls, hopes to move to the Auckland Road site in 2012.
