regarding the Founding of a Synagogue in Leicester

The Jewish Chronicle and The Hebrew Observer, Friday 22 June 1860

Leicester, 5620 - June 15th, 1860

To The Jewish Public

Few as the Jewish Residents of LEICESTER are, they yet feel most deeply the want of a SYNAGOGUE, in which they might regularly worship the God of their fathers, not less for their own edification than for that of the Jewish visitors who continually come to their town. They have for this purpose procured a Building, and collected amongst themselves 50.

It must, however, be clear that for so small a sum - considerable in proportion to their number and means - the Synagogue could not be established. They therefore earnestly and hopefully APPEAL to their Co-religionists throughout the United Kingdom, to assist them, by their Contributions, in carrying out the pious work in which they are engaged.

Donations will be thankfully received by -
Messrs. A. SPIELMANN and Co., Bankers, Lombard street, London;
A. BLANCKENSEE, Esq., 8, Great Charles-street, Birmingham.
By the President, S. HARRIS, Esq., Granby-street, Leicester.
And by the Treasurer, Jos. LEVY, Esq., East Gates, Leicester.
