Photos of an amazing Purim

The New West End and Western Marble Arch Synagogues joined Central Synagogue in a wonderful show of unity on Sunday. Just under 200 people came together in Great Portland Street for a warm and inviting Purim celebration with a wonderful Megillah reading and festive family brunch. Children were entertained by an amazing balloon artist and magician as well as a fancy dress parade and there was food and drink aplenty.

The evening before, Central joined the New West End Synagogue in Bayswater for a most enjoyable Megillah reading and show.  The ‘West End Story’ musical parody written by various members of New West End and Holland Park Synagogues was a hit and left the audience wanting more. We thank the New West End Synagogue for their warmth and generous hospitality.
