Great Synagogue

The Great Synagogue of London was located at Duke’s Place, north of Aldgate. Historically, it was the center of Ashkenazi synagogue and Jewish life in London. The earliest synagogue was constructed around 1690, with a new building erected in 1722 with the support of philanthropist Moses Hart, while a third building in the classical style was erected on the site between 1788 and 1790, funded by Moses’s daughter Judith Hart Levy. After centuries of serving the Jewish community in London, the Synagogue was destroyed in the Blitz during the Second World War.
