History of the Hampstead Synagogue and Order of Service on the Fiftieth Anniversary of its opening, 24th Ellul, 5702, 6th September, 1942

5l Hampstead_0001I have previously written about the Hampstead Synagogue ten years after its opening.  Here we are now, forty years later, in 1942.  This wartime booklet has the history of the Hampstead Synagogue followed by a Roll of Honour – Members of the Hampstead Synagogue, and their sons and daughters, who served in the British armed forces up to 1942.  This is followed by an Order of Service (not scanned).

In 1942, the Rabbi was Dayan Mark Gollop, Senior Chaplain to the British Armed Forces, about whom I have also previously written, and the Assistant Minister, filling in as Dayan Gollop was away, was Morris Nemeth, later to become Rabbi of the New West End Synagogue.

One thought on “History of the Hampstead Synagogue and Order of Service on the Fiftieth Anniversary of its opening, 24th Ellul, 5702, 6th September, 1942

  1. Good morning Jeffrey. Always pleased to see your postings.
    Interested to see how many officers there were in the list of people serving in WW2. A reflection of course of the middle / upper middle class nature of the community.
    If I remember correctly a cousin of my fathers Lieutenant Bernard Henry Zox Jacobs of the Royal Artillery killed in November 1942 is remembered on a memorial in Hampstead Synagogue.
    Incidentally I have the Order of Service on the 25th anniversary of the opening of Hampstead Synagogue West End Lane London N W Sunday the 22nd Ellul 5677 9th September 1917 which contains an 11 page history, some portraits of some of the leading lights, officers, past honorary officers, original provisional committee members,and honorary officers of Synagogue sub-committees.
