Bevis Marks closes for first time in 350-year history

The virus has done what German bombers could not by closing England’s oldest synagogue – London’s Bevis Marks. 

David Ereira, vice-president of the S&P Sephardi Community, said: “Bevis Marks is the only shul we believe in the world that has never closed in its 350- year history. Even during the Blitz it remained open. This Shabbat is the first time [it] had no official service.”
