Leaders of the Jacob Benjamin Elias Synagogue in Stamford Hill hope a £300,000 extension will be finished in January and will improve dining, educational and social facilities for the Sephardi community.

Shul president Barook Abraham said: "Our congregation consists mainly of Iraqi Jews with some Syrian and Persian Jews. We want to extend links to Asian and Moroccan Jews. By having more activities in shul, we hope to establish a more integrated community."
