The project was delivered under a Heritage Lottery Funded scheme for ‘Sharing Jewish Heritage in Leicester.

Leicester Synagogue (1)

We worked very closely with the Leicester Hebrew Congregation to understand and deliver what the community needed and wanted for their much-loved synagogue. The design is sensitive to old structure with the new connection being respectful to the original fabric, but distinct and honest, clearly visible but with the original building remaining the focus.

“Leicester Hebrew Congregation is delighted with the design produced by Stephen George + Partners which has resulted in our Grade II listed synagogue being enhanced by a modern extension. This extension, along with the refurbishment of the existing structure, provides for both the needs of our community and the many visitors we receive each year as part of our “Sharing Jewish Heritage” project. We are grateful for the generous grant from The Heritage Lottery Fund that allowed us to develop this project in collaboration with SGP”
