Congregation Data

Yanover Synagogue

Address:

45 Fashion Street, Spitalfields, London E1.

Fashion Street (some 600 feet long), in London's East End, runs east from Commercial Street to Brick Lane, parallel with Fournier Street (300 feet to the north). (Flower & Dean Street used to run parallel 200 feet to the south but this no longer exists.)

The synagogue takes its name from Yanover (also spelled Janover), a small town in the Kovno region of Lithuania, from which, presumably, the founders originated.

Orthodox - Ashkenazi

Affiliation:

An affiliated synagogue of the Federation of Synagogues.

Membership Data:

1905  - 65 members  (Jewish Year Book 1906)

Local Authority Districts:

Fashion Street is now in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, created on 1 April 1965, within the administrative area of Greater London.

Previously, it was in the Metropolitan Borough of Stepney (established 1900) in the County of London (established 1889), both of which entities were abolished in 1965.

The locality was also within the civil parish of Spitalfields, which was abolished in 1921, being absorbed into the civil parish of Whitechapel, which itself was abolished in 1927 and absorbed into Stepney Borough parish (until that parish's abolition in 1965).

Registration Districts:

From 1 July 1837 - Whitechapel
From 1 January 1926 - Stepney
From 1 January 1983 - Tower Hamlets (which would now hold the registers, if any)
