Event description

Description

We warmly welcome you to come and join us on two of the Heritage Open Days and see what an equisite gem lies hidden in the centre of Brighton.

Middle Street's Grade II* listed Synagogue was opened in 1875 and has the finest 19th century decorative interior of any building in Brighton with the sole exception of the Brighton Pavilion. It is one of the finest cathedral synagogues in Europe. Every year we welcome thousands of people who leave a little more enlightened and usually a little astonished at the hidden jewel of an interior they discovered behind those big mahogany doors.

Our local historian Godfrey Gould will be giving enjoyable and informative talks (20 mins) on the history of the synagogue and the local Jewish community. He may even delight you by blowing the shofar (ram's horn)!

Donations towards the restoration of this magnificent Grade II* listed synagogue are gratefully welcome. (Suggested donation £2).
