Congregation Data


Moses Moore's Synagogue


66 Mansell Street, London E1

(Location: Mansell Street, in London's East End, runs south some 1,000 feet from Aldgate High Street (opposite Middlesex Street). It is parallel with Leman Street (500 feet to the east) and Minories (400 feet to the west).)

Date Founded:

About 1840

Stated by N. S. Joseph in The Jewish Chronicle, 23 September 1870, to have been founded "about 25 years", and by Moses Moore's son in The Jewish World, 4 December 1899, to have be "so called since 1841". (Social  History of Jews in England, V. D. Lipman, p71)

Current Status:

Closed - not known when - late nineteenth century


Orthodox - Ashkenazi


None known - apparently a "private minyan"

Local Government Districts:

The northern 400 feet of Mansell Street is in the City of London. The southern section of Mansell Street is in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, created on 1 April 1965, within the administrative area of Greater London.

Previously, southern Mansell Street was in the Metropolitan Borough of Stepney (established 1900) in the County of London (established 1889), both of which entities were abolished in 1965. It was also within the civil parish of Whitechapel (which was in the former County of Middlesex until 1889) and which, from 1856 to 1900, was a constituent of the Whitechapel District.

The civil parish of Whitechapel was abolished in 1927, being absorbed into Stepney Borough parish, which itself was abolished in 1965.

Registration Districts:

If not within City of London, then:

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