Synagogue Walk

 It has been agreed with Eleanor Bloom  to hold a walk in East London on

 Sunday 3rd December

 

ARRIVAL & SURVIVAL part II

 

Many of the Ashkenazi Jewish community made their homes around Petticoat Lane, Spitalfields and Brick Lane.  On this walk, we will find out about market traders, Jewish unions, a soup kitchen, the 4% dwellings, the shvitz (vapour bath) and backyard synagogues. 

 Try to imagine the sights, sounds and smells of the 'Lane', including Chicken Soup & Barley as in the title of the play.  Who said Fings Ain't Wot They Used To Be? See his birthplace and that of many more famous names with their roots in the Jewish East End. We may also visit Sandys Row Synagogue.

 

We will meet outside Liverpool Street Station, Bishopsgate Exit,  (Eastern Main Line Station & Circle/Hammersmith & Central Lines)

 

The cost will be £7 per person  and the walk will last about 2 hours.  

 

The numbers will be limited to  20 persons only. Only a few places left.

 

Please contact Jeff Soraff if you wish to come along
