HRH attends a special service to mark the 175th anniversary of the West London Synagogue

17th December 2015

The Prince of Wales visited the West London Synagogue this morning, attending a special service of thanksgiving to mark the culmination of the synagogue's year-long 175th anniversary celebrations.

The West London Synagogue is the oldest progressive synagogue in the United Kingdom, with Social Action at its heart. The synagogue has developed a range of interfaith activities to build on-going relationships with those of other faiths within the local community. HRH had the chance to meet asylum-seeking families who have been supported by a drop-in facility run by volunteers at the Synagogue. This centre provides families with essential items such as toiletries, nappies and clothing. 

For many years, The Prince of Wales has worked to promote interfaith dialogue amongst all religions in Britain, believing every religion in Britain plays a vital role in our communal life.
