Board of Deputies Vice President Edwin Shuker has urged the Corporation of London to consider carefully the effect of a new multi-storey block next door to Bevis Marks, one of the world’s oldest and most historic synagogues.
He said: “It is vital that the whole Jewish community support Bevis Marks at this time. As the community’s mother synagogue, it is not just a critical part of UK Jewish heritage, but for all those who value a tolerant multicultural society in London and the whole country. We urge the Corporation of London to consider these important factors when evaluating any proposal.”
