Sandys Row Archive
Sandys Row Archive is a digital archive held by the Bishopsgate Institute Archives. It contains the records of Sandys Row Synagogue and the Synagogue’s judaica collection.
Sandys Row Synagogue was founded in 1854 by Dutch immigrants from Amsterdam, in the heart of the former Jewish East End. It is now London’s oldest Ashkenazi Synagogue and the last functioning synagogue in Spitalfields.
The Sandys Row Archive has been digitised as part of the Our Hidden Histories project which celebrates the unique story of this historic community. Users can explore the extensive Digital Archive on the website which includes: excerpts from the oral history collection, searchable and downloadable marriage records, minute books, seat registers and more, along with photographs of its collection of Judaica.
The physical material the archive is created from can be found in the Bishopsgate Institute Archives.
The archive is available online at the project’s web page.
