Tottenham Jewish Home and Hospital


Basic Information

Originally founded in 1889 at Nos. 49-51 Victoria Park Road in Hackney, the Home for Jewish incurables offered care to poor Jewish immigrants permanently disabled by chronic disease, accident or physical handicap.  It had 9 inmates.

The Home was extended in 1913, when a new wing with 34 beds was added, and a synagogue designed by Marcus Collins, who had also designed the Home, opened in 1914 (it was consecrated at the end of WW1). In 1918, at the end of the war, the Ministry of Pensions requested that the new wing be used to accommodate incurable Jewish ex-servicemen.
