Fears for synagogue as residents evacuate flooded homes

By Daniel Easterman, February 13, 2014

A rabbi of a synagogue in the Thames Valley described this week how his congregants have been forced to abandon their homes as a result of the severe flooding in the area.

Rabbi Jonathan Romain, of Maidenhead shul, said a young family in the village of Wargrave, in Berkshire, had moved out after water from the nearby Thames inundated their house.
