Muslims in synagogue for post-fast feast

September 28, 2010

Sixteen Muslims and 18 Jews attended a post-Eid and Yom Kippur get-together at the New London Synagogue in St John's Wood.

Organised by Alif-Aleph (British Muslims and Jews), with the Coexistence Trust and the Cambridge Centre for Muslim-Jewish Relations, the event explored similarities in prayer and the question: "How does fasting at Ramadan and Yom Kippur help us to make moral decisions afterwards?" The discussion was led by New London's Rabbi Jeremy Gordon and Sheikh Michael Mumisa from the Cambridge centre.

'Distress' over Lady J absentees

By Robyn Rosen, July 15, 2010

United Synagogue president Simon Hochhauser has bemoaned the large number of "no shows" at a US-organised memorial tribute to Lady Jakobovits.

Athough almost 1,000 people turned out for the event at St John's Wood Synagogue last month, 400 people booked tickets but did not attend.

At Monday's US council meeting, Edgware representative Silvia Hartman said: "The evening was well done but I was absolutely and totally distressed at the amount of people that were not there.

"The community was not properly informed. It was a throwaway line in our own shul and we're a huge community."
