Notes & Sources ( returns to text above)

  • (i) Based upon first appearance in Jewish Year Books.

  • (ii) The Congregation last appears in the Jewish Year Book for 2010. However, its address, 47 Mountfield Road, is part of the address (45-47 Mountfield Road) of the Beis Hamedresh Biala (Birkas Zvi Biala), which first appears in the Jewish Year Book for 2011. Although it is probable that Beis Hamedrash Biala acquired the premises from the Congregation, which then ceased to be active, it is possible that there was a change of name of the Congregation.
