Princelet Street Synagogue at Shavuot - photograph

Description:
The synagogue at 19 Princelet Street, Spitalfields, was established in 1870, behind a Huguenot house of 1719. Although the synagogue ceased to function in the late 1960s, the interior has been preserved and is now managed by a trust. In this photograph, the synagogue is decorated with flowers for the festival of Shavuot, which marks the wheat harvest and the gathering of the first fruits.
