150th Anniversary service

On 3rd October 2021 the 150th year anniversary of Park Row Synagogue was commemoted and celebrated with a Civic Service. In attendance was the Lord Mayor, the Lord Lieutenant – the Crown’s representative in Bristol, Councillor Asher Craig, as well as other city dignitaries and community leaders, members of the shul council, members and community participants. Presiding over the service was the Mosaic Voices choir, Cantor Roland Bradman, a special address by Rabbi Joseph Dweck – Senior Rabbi of the S&P Sephardi Community, long standing member Colin Berkovitch, Synagogue President David Turns and Rabbi Mendy Singer.

The recordings below include some highlights, as well as a 30 minute long clip of the 2nd half of the event (although this one isn’t the best quality since it was also being streamed).
