‘The Chief Rabbi’s Pastoral Tour - Blackpool

Continuing his pastoral tour the Chief Rabbi arrived in Blackpool on Wednesday week, and was met y the Special Reception Committee, who escorted him to the Town Hall, where he was welcomed by the Mayor and Town Clerk. After a drive along the promenade he held a reception at the Palatine Hotel of the Jewish members, their wives and children. Subsequently Mincha service was held at which Dr. Adler delivered an address on the necessity of a synagogue and classrooms, and he examined the children in Hebrew and Scripture History.
In the evening DR. ADLER addressed a numerous audience in he local Town Hall, kindly lent for the purpose. The object of the meeting was the furthering of a scheme for the building of a synagogue in the town. The Chief Rabbi was escorted to his seat by the Mayor (Alderman Heap.)
The Mayor, in welcoming Dr. Adler said that it afforded him great pleasure in his capacity as Chief Magistrate of the Borough of Blackpool to do so. He had come to the conclusion that it was due to the people of Blackpool that he should welcome Dr. Adler. - (Applaud). That gentleman came among them that night with a very definite object, that of providing a synagogue in which his people might worship in their own way. That was a privilege enjoyed by themselves, and therefore they were willing and anxious that Dr. Adler’s mission might prove successful. Looking at it from another point of view, they would see that the establishment of a church would prove a benefit to Blackpool. Members of the Jewish community came to Blackpool, and perhaps did not stay so long as they would if there was in existence a place of worship. As citizens of Blackpool, they should give the Jews every assistance they could. There seemed to be something peculiar, if they would allow him to put it that way, about the Jewish people and about their history. It seemed to him that in those countries where they had been in greatest numbers they had been most persecuted. It was to be deplored tat in Russia the Jews has been dealt with so hardly, but in Russia their numbers were far greater than in England, where the best treatment had been accorded them. To conclude, he might say that as the Hebrew language was compose of “consonants” so he hoped the members of the synagogue, when formed, will live together in “consonance.” (Applause).
The Chief Rabbi on rising to address the meeting was loudly applauded. In moving the following resolution: “That it is eminently desirable that the Jewish residents of Blackpool acquire a suitable building to be used for the purpose of a place of worship, the same to include a classroom, where instruction in Hebrew and religion may be imparted to the children of the congregation,” Dr. Adler said that he had been deeply moved by the kindly words which had been spoken, not with reference to himself merely, but with reference to the religious community to which it was his privilege to belong. They did, indeed, hold it as a great and priceless privilege, to be citizens of he great country, in which, like none other throughout the world, the high and lofty principles of religious and civil equality and liberty were so fully recognised and so fully acted upon. He was aware that the Mayor had arranged to preside at another meeting, intended to commemorate the tercentenary of Oliver Cromwell. They were very grateful to the Mayor that he had consented to preside at that meeting, and had lent the Town Hall for that purpose. He ventured to think, and he would prove, that the Mayor’s presidency on that occasion was a worthy celebration of the tercentenary of the Lord Protector. He could well understand how great a fascination Blackpool must exercise upon people to come there, and to throw off their cares and worries while beholding nature, in its wildest beauty, in the ocean. His people who came there should have a synagogue in which they could offer prayer, in a town beloved by associations, and witness in unison he performance of their sacred rites. He was sure they would all gladly acknowledge that no place of worship was complete unless there was associated with it a classroom in which the children might be taught the tenets of their faith, and the lessons of morality which only could conduce to their welfare upon earth. There could be no question as regarded the necessity of children being taught the sublime principles of morality, such as they found them in the Bible; and they knew that no teaching of mere ethics could affect them, as lessons of honour, truth, and fidelity could only be deeply rooted in the breasts of the young when they rested upon faith in God. He therefore moved the resolution, hoping that no long time would be permitted to pass before it came to fruition. They would be assisted, when they commenced, by their brethren in the larger Lancashire towns, and also in the metropolis. (Applause).
Mr. Shiers seconded he motion which was supported by the Revs. I. Simon, C. H. Wainwright and Mr. S. M. Harris (Southport) and carried.
The Mayor speaking with regard to a burial ground, said they might take it that the Blackpool Corporation would extend the same liberal spirit as had been shown elsewhere. He believed they were aware that the Corporation had agreed to set apart a portion of the cemetery for the purposes of the Jews, and so far as they as a body was concerned it might safely be taken that everything possible would be done to meet their wishes. He was glad to see such pleasant relations between the denominations in Blackpool and hoped they would continue.
Light refreshments were then partaken of.
On Thursday the Chief Rabbi, accompanied by the Mayor, the Town Clerk and the Building Committee, visited the cemetery to inspect the portion allotted by the Corporation for Jewish burials. During his stay Dr. Adler took his meals at Mr. H. Kaufman’s Boarding House, 90 [sic - 97] Albert Road’.

‘Consecration of Blackpool Synagogue

The new synagogue in Springfield Road, North Shore, Blackpool, was announced to be consecrated yesterday afternoon by the Chief Rabbi, and a reception was to follow, presided over by the Mayor.
The congregation was established on May 1st, 1898, by seven members, the founders being Messrs. Saul Shiers, President; E. I. Samuels, Hon. Secretary; J. A. Arnold, A. Latte, H. Kauffman and J. Samter. The first service was held at the house of Mr . E. I. Samuels, for which purpose a Scroll of the Law was lent by the South Manchester Congregation, and the opening sermon was delivered by the Rev. I. Simon, minister of that congregation. The following year the Chief Rabbi, on his pastoral tour, visited the congregation, and was the guest of the then Mayor, at the Town Hall. He also inspected the portion of the cemetery proposed to be given by the Corporation for Jewish burials. During that year a magnificent Sepher, silver bells, pointers, and breast-plat were presented anonymously.
The Present membership is fourteen, but the number of visitors in the season is large, and the new synagogue will accommodate 100.

Comment. ‘Blackpool Needs a Synagogue’
Appeal has been made for a new Blackpool Synagogue. The local community is small but is greatly augmented by visitors. The synagogue accommodation is worse than inadequate.
‘ A room, the street entrance of which also gives admission to a Turkish bath, a billiard saloon, and a cinema show, can hardly be regarded as a suitable environment for Jewish worship; and when to this is added the defects of bad ventilation and unsatisfactory sanitary arrangements and absence of class-rooms, the need for a fresh start becomes unmistakable. Land has now been acquired for a new synagogue worthy of the dignity of Judaism and the needs of the community’.
£2,000 needed should be subscribed by the general Jewish public.

The annual report states in part: When the year started the new synagogue Building Committee were well advanced with their plans. Letters of support from the Chief Rabbi and D. L. Alexander KC and the first list of donations promised locally, of about £1,000, were published in the Jewish press, and an active canvass in London and the provinces began. Designs were accepted and a contract signed for building. But war was declared and all canvassing for funds was stopped and it was decided to proceed slowly with construction.
Five of our members have sons in HM Forces.
