The Stenecourt (Manchester Great New) synagogue was filled to capacity on Sunday as nearly 1,000 people from across the Manchester community attended a memorial service for the victims of the Mumbai attacks. The audience, which overflowed into the shul hall, was addressed by leading rabbis from the city including Dayan Menachem-Mendel Schneebalg from the Chasidic community and the Manchester Beth Din’s Yehuda Steiner.

Stenecourt trustee Howard Gordon said the high turnout “demonstrated the unity within the community”, but added: “It’s just a shame it was a tragedy that brought the community together.”
