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.
