The Bevis Marks Synagogue Heritage Foundation is an independent charity, created in 2019 by the Spanish and Portuguese Sephardi Community, to preserve and manage the buildings, archives and collections of the Bevis Marks Synagogue.
HRH The Prince of Wales
The Foundation’s vision is to enable Bevis Marks’ living community to thrive and develop the Synagogue into a vibrant meeting-place which welcomes visitors of all faiths and none to celebrate and learn about the history, culture and traditions of the Spanish and Portuguese Jewish community.
Our aim is to pass on to future generations the heritage that has enriched our own lives and a legacy which ensures it is preserved and shared for the benefit of others for centuries to come.
Our current goals are to secure all the funds needed to complete the development project and to establish an endowment fund to help with future maintenance and preservation of the Synagogue.
The S&P Sephardi Community is the working name of charities in connection with the Spanish and Portuguese Jews' Congregation, the first community established after the Readmission of the Jews to England in 1656. Bevis Marks Synagogue was built as a place of worship and communal hub in 1701, and has been cared for and operated by this same community throughout its existence. The Bevis Marks Synagogue Heritage Foundation has been established to preserve Bevis Marks and secure its long-term future.
