“In 2007, I participated as a chaperone on the March of the Living. This was my first experience travelling to Poland, where both of my parents are from. That trip had a profound impact on my life; I was surprised to discover old synagogues there which have since been abandoned.
The Bagg Street Shul really reminds me of the places we had the opportunity to visit and like all old shuls, are an important part of the heritage of our community. I started coming to the Bagg synagogue occasionally with friends on Shabbat for a beautiful service and to enjoy a l’chayim. Having recently lost both my parents, this building will forever have a special place in my heart reminding me of the people and places I have descended from.”
