Sussex

Synagogue Window Mosaic

The branch is chaired by Michael Crook, a retired Chartered Surveyor, whose family history in Brighton and association with the town’s Middle Street Synagogue goes back over 125 years. In 2016, the branch published the Anthology of the Brighton & Hove Jewish Community 1766-2016, with the support of JHSE, to celebrate 250 years since the first record of a Jewish resident in Brighton, and arranged the installation of a Blue Plaque to commemorate this historic event.
The branch usually meets on the last Tuesday of October, November, January, February, March and April at Ralli Hall, Denmark Villas, Hove, although dates may change depending on Jewish holidays. Since autumn 2020, all meetings have been on Zoom, but it is hoped to arrange hybrid meetings from October 2022.
