The site of an historic Jewish building is the latest recipient of a People's Plaque, an Islington Council initiative that celebrates significant people, places and events in the borough.
The distinctive green plaque will be unveiled at the site of the North London Synagogue on Thursday 4 June at a ceremony attended by local dignitaries and prominent members of the Jewish community.
Consecrated by the Chief Rabbi in 1868, the North London Synagogue was situated on John Street [now Lofting Road] in Barnsbury. It served as a place of worship to the Jewish community for 90 years.
The building was designed in Italian style and richly decorated with marble, plaster moulded into the shape of plants, coffered ceilings and stained glass. See details here
