Hull Reform Synagogue - Great Gutter Lane - Willerby - HU10 6DP
In 1971, it was decided that the Hull Reform Congregation become a constituted Synagogue and, based upon the Sinai Synagogue, Leeds constitution, the Hull Reform Synagogue was born.
Over the 1980’s, the number of Synagogue members slowly grew and eventually Anlaby House was unable to be hired and regular Services were switched to the Anlaby Methodist Church Hall and eventually the Cottingham Civic Hall.
The Hull Reform Synagogue became “wandering Jews” and Services were held wherever the wardrobe and scroll came to rest.
In 1991, one of the members, Henry Goldstone became instrumental in the purchase and construction of a Synagogue building (Shul), in Great Gutter Lane, Willerby. At last the “wanderers” had found their home and what a home! A new purpose-built, single-storey Shul which incorporated many facilities for the disabled and provided the Community with both a religious and communal base
