BRADFORD REFORM SYNAGOGUE
EDM #1801
Tabled 02 July 2009
2008-09 Session
That this House congratulates the Bradford Reform Synagogue on attainment of Grade II* listing; acknowledges the architectural merit of one of the few surviving synagogues in Europe built in the Moorish style; recalls that it was built by German immigrants in 1881 and is Yorkshire's oldest purpose-built synagogue; recognises the contribution made by its congregation to the life of Bradford during the past 130 years; and regrets that the local Jewish community no longer has the resources to maintain it and hopes that means may be found to keep it in use for future generations.
