The BBC is to host ‘Any Questions in Wimbledon & District Reform synagogue, the first time the programme has been broadcast at a synagogue.

Synagogue council member David Zell led a campaign to get the political show, which has been on air since 1948, to the synagogue.

The BBC have confirmed the programme has never been held in a shul since it began broadcasting 62 years ago.

The programme will air on July 16, the 200th anniversary of the first Reform Movement service. It will conclude before Shabbat, then a special Friday night Shabbat service to celebrate the anniversary will be held.
