Synagogue's new Ark for scrolls

First published in News

A NEW Ark has been built for the Shenfield, Brentwood and Districts’ Synagogue.

Rosh Tikvah had an Ark built that is large enough to hold all of its three scrolls.

The small community was formed in 2009 under the auspices of Liberal Judaism, to cover the areas between Romford and Colchester.

Chairman of the group, Natasha Radford, said: “While we have received amazing local support, we could not have achieved all we have without the financial assistance offered by NLPS Trust for Progressive Judaism.

“From our inception, NLPS Trust has aided us, and recently awarded us a grant enabling us to build our new Ark.”
