Bradford Reform Synagogue on Bowland Street, formerly the Bradford Synagogue for British and Foreign Jews, built in 1881.
Described as a ‘Moorish Gem’, this Oriental or Byzantine style house of prayer was built between 1880 and 1881 under the architects T.H. & F. Healey.
The Synagogue is now Grade II* listed and is the second oldest surviving Reform Synagogue in the U.K., after the West London Synagogue.
What is unusual in the case of Bradford is that the Reform was built before the Orthodox, principally because the Reform Community was made up of German merchants and their families.
