With only just over thirty members and an extravagant Grade II listed
Moorish building, the tiny Jewish community of Bradford have for many years
been in despair about their finances – until the local Muslim community
stepped in to help.

The grand-looking Reform synagogue, is on an unassuming street, between the
Yorkshire Tandoori, Al-Hijaab Islamic Clothing and the Jamia Shan-E-Islam
Educational Centre.

Built in 1880, it has long been under threat of closure, but several Muslim
organisations in the city have pledged to stop it falling into ruin, with
donors giving £2,000 to save the synagogue’s roof.
