Brighton and Hove Hebrew Congregation members have been given an update on building work at the congregation's historic Middle Street synagogue.
Chairman Martyn Cooperman told the shul's annual meeting that essential repairs to the roof costing £460,000 had been completed.
English Heritage gave a £319,000 grant and a further £100,000 was taken from the proceeds from the sale of the cottage at the back of the synagogue. The remainder was met from shul funds.
