Basic Information

By the front door of the building, which has now been converted into flats, there is a stone plaque stating that the building was dedicated to the memory of those members of the West London Synagogue and the Liberal Jewish Synagogue who lost their lives in the first World War. (The road has now been renamed Henriques Street.) The Ner Tamid, perpetual light, which still hangs in front of the Ark at the Stepney Branch, is dedicated to the memory of Leonard Stern who was killed in WW1. Leonard Stern was a club manager in the Boys Club founded by Basil Henriques, and the son of Rev. J.F.Stern the minister of the East London Synagogue (United Synagogue, Orthodox) in Rectory Square.
