Remembrance Shabbat 2022

For Remembrance Shabbat 2022, Pinner Shul was covered in poppies when friends of Sonya Daniels z”l decided to knit poppies in her memory. Sonya was introduced to poppy knitting by Ruth Simons when she was unwell and sold them for charity. We were so pleased that Ruth, Jackie Silverstone and Doreen Samuels and many other friends participated in knitting the poppies and then decorating the shul.

Remembrance Sunday 2022

We supported the multi-faith Pinner Act of Remembrance on Sunday 13 November 2022 when our member, Stan Conway, laid a wreath on behalf of our community at the ceremony.

World War 2 – Memorial Board

We are proud to have prominently displayed in our Shul the Memorial Board from the former Harrow Synagogue. It commemorates the eleven members of that Jewish community who gave their lives in the Second World War and its aftermath.

Having been displayed in the first Pinner Synagogue,  it was rededicated in the second Pinner Synagogue, which stands on the same site, on Remembrance Sunday 11 November 2012 – 26 Cheshvan 5773 in the presence of members of the families of those who are commemorated.
