Sandys Row Synagogue, London’s oldest still functioning Ashkenazi Synagogue, was established in the 19th century by Dutch Jews from Amsterdam in a building that was originally constructed in 1766 as a Protestant chapel. In this personal essay, writer and artist Rachel Lichtenstein, who is working on a book that explores the story of the synagogue, describes its current status and complex history — as well as her personal relationship with the building and London’s East End.
