European Jewish Heritage Day attracted some 10,000 visitors to historic synagogues and sites across the country.

September 2004

 

Officially designated "European Day of Jewish Culture and Heritage" and organised by B'nai Brith all over the continent since 1996, this highly successful event is now in its fifth year in the UK.

New participants this year included Cheltenham Synagogue, a delightful Regency style Grade II* Listed building in the English South West.
Also during September, major synagogues were open to the public for the national Heritage Open Days, organised by The Civic Trust, Open House London and Scottish Doors Open Day, when Glasgow’s Garnethill Synagogue reported over 650 visitors.
