Lady Judith's seat inside Montefiore Synagogue

Friends of Montefiore Woodland enjoy private viewing of the Montefiore Synagogue and Mausoleum.

Several members took advantage of February’s private viewing of Montefiore Synagogue and Mausoleum. Our thanks go to Derek for opening, Mark Negin (the artist who created the murals in the Montefiore Medical Centre) for his informative talk on the Synagogue and the lives of Sir Moses and Lady Judith and to Lisa for arranging the event.

Comments I received via e-mail sum the morning up perfectly:

“Just to say it was a lovely and informative visit to the synagogue today. I know we can go on the internet to read about almost everything these days, but I much prefer to listen to a speaker with an interest in a subject, and Mark Negin did a great job. The paintings he did which are on display in East Cliff Practice are lovely, and I was able to tell him this in person today”.


“Very many thanks for the opportunity of visiting the Synagogue and Mausoleum today. I felt very privileged and Mark’s talk was very interesting. Please pass on my thanks to him”.

It was good to have an opportunity to talk with other members of the Friends.

It is hoped we will be able to arrange a second private viewing of the Synagogue and Mausoleum sometime in the future to give other members the opportunity to view this historic site.
