The Feldgate Street Synagogue.

Repro ID: H6154
Description: There were once more than 60 synagogues in the Jewish East End. With the natural dispersal of the Jewish community, very few survive. The Feldgate Street Synagogue, opened in 1899, was rebuilt in the 1950s following bomb damage during World War II. The orignal foundation stone survives in the fabric of the new temple. It still caters for worshippers, but is now dwarfed by the Whitechapel Mosque immediately behind it – a testament to the changing ethnic composition of the area.
