Guest speak­ers in­cluded Board of Deputies pres­i­dent Henry Grun­wald, United Syn­a­gogue in­terim chief ex­ec­u­tive Stu­art Tay­lor and the Is­rael Em­bassy’s Ronit Ben Dor. En­ter­tain­ment was by Masters of the House, four stars of West End mu­si­cals with back­ing in­stru­men­tal­ists

Around £5,000 was raised from the evening, which was or­gan­ised by vice-chair Howard Free­man and a com­mit­tee headed by Stephen Collins and De­bra Levin.

Aside from a do­na­tion to a Jerusalem soup kitchen, the money will go to­wards a re­fur­bish­ment pro­gramme for Pin­ner’s 25-year-old syn­a­gogue build­ing, cur­rently in use up to 15 hours a day, seven days a week.
