Glas­gow goes big on her­itage

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY -

RE­GIONAL SYN­A­GOGUES and other com­mu­nal prop­er­ties of his­toric and ar­chi­tec­tural im­por­tance drew the crowds dur­ing B’nai B’rith UK’s an­nual Euro­pean days of Jewish cul­ture and her­itage.

An open day in Glas­gow or­gan­ised by Gar­nethill Syn­a­gogue Preser­va­tion Trust in con­junc­tion with Gar­nethill He­brew Con­gre­ga­tion and the Scot­tish Jewish Ar­chives Cen­tre at­tracted more than 850 vis­i­tors. In Liver­pool, hun­dreds turned out for a guided walk around Deane Road ceme­tery or­gan­ised by the Princes Road con­gre­ga­tion and a sep­a­rate talk held in con­junc­tion with Na­tional Her­itage Days.

Pro­gramme co-or­di­na­tor Va­lerie Bello said that events held through­out the coun­try demon­strated “the in­creas­ingly sig­nif­i­cant role her­itage plays in our na­tional life”. The num­ber of nonJewish vis­i­tors of all ages could only en­hance in­ter­faith un­der­stand­ing.
