Pictured from left, are the Bishop of Stepney, the Rt Rev Stephen Oliver with congregant Lawrence Zussman and the deputy Mayor of Tower Hamlets Cllr Manir Ahmed. (Photo courtsey of London Jewish News).The Chief Rabbi, Dr Jonathan Sacks, recalled his days growing up in the East End and the special place the area and its people had in his heart when he visited the borough for a synagogue's centenery celebrations.

More than 150 congregants, members and friends attended the afternoon service at the Congregation of Jacob Synagogue in Stepney, a short distance from where Dr Sacks' grandparents ran a wine merchants, and he spent most of his early childhood.

the congregation is undergoing a revival as younger Jews return to the area that was once the cradle of the British Jewish community.

Dr Sacks commended worshippers for keeping the synagogue going and building bridges with other faith communities in Tower Hamlets.
