Cambridge MP Julian Huppert attends laying of foundation stone for new synagogue

Cambridge MP Julian Huppert will attend the laying of the foundation stone for Cambridge’s new £2 million synagogue this weekend.

Julian will join other guests at the Beth Shalom Synagogue in Auckland Road on Sunday (September 7) for the ceremony at 11.30am.

He said: “I am delighted to be invited to attend this important occasion. For years, Cambridge’s Reform Jewish community has been in temporary accommodation around the city, and this new sustainable building will provide members with permanent accommodation offering so many more opportunities.

“It is the result of an ambitious fund-raising campaign of which its members should be proud and I hope it will be enjoyed for years to come”.
