The Jewish Chronicle - - Community - BY SI­MON ROCKER

BAR­NET SYN­A­GOGUE is to twin with Poland’s main con­gre­ga­tion, the Nozyk Syn­a­gogue in War­saw — seat of its Chief Rabbi, Michael Schu­drich.

The twin­ning — the first be­tween Bri­tish and Pol­ish syn­a­gogues, ac­cord­ing to Bar­net’s Rabbi Barry Lerer — will be cel­e­brated at cer­e­monies in Poland next month and in Bar­net in Oc­to­ber. The tie-up will “help re­ju­ve­nate Jewish life in Poland”, said Filip Sli­paczek, me­dia of­fi­cer of the In­sti­tute of Pol­ishJewish Stud­ies.

“Bar­net is a young, vi­brant com­mu­nity and many peo­ple have links with Poland.”
