November 2, 2014

The stone consecration for the late Hilary Halpern took place on Sunday 2 November in the Jewish section of Chatham Cemetery. There was also a well-attended memorial service in the synagogue on Sunday 13 July 2014. The service was conducted by the Revd Malcolm Weisman OBE, Minister for Small Communities and included a special prayer for Hilary by synagogue chairman, Jon Weiner. 

Hilary, who died in July 2013, served the community for many years as a former chairman, chairman of trustees and as honorary architect and he will be remembered among other things for his tireless dedication to preserving the fabric of our beautiful historic synagogue.
