1919

In 1919 this beautiful hand painted certificate was presented to board member Mr J.S.Polak for his services to Sandys Row Synagogue when the reverend Mr A Kantor had left his post to move to Manchester. Mr Polak covered some of Reverend Kantor’s duties with the help of the Secretary of the synagogue, Reverend Bronkhorst, until another suitable candidate was found for the position. Mr Polak was a highly regarded board member and the other members recommended that he be rewarded in some way for his service which was beyond the call of duty.
