Good news for Bradford Reform Synagogue

At its November meeting the Chapels Society’s Council noted an interesting story that had appeared recently in The Huffington Post.  The dwindling Jewish community charged with the care of an extravagant Grade II listed Moorish style synagogue in Bradford has recently been approached with an offer of help from the local Muslim community.  The collaboration between the two faith communities will hopefully secure the future of this very fine synagogue, which is potentially deserving of Grade II* status.

According to The Huffington Post, Zulfi Karim, the secretary of the Bradford Council of Mosques, said he hoped that the story of local collaboration amid global Muslim-Jewish tensions would be an inspirational one, and one that would improve the image of the city.
