Notes & Sources ( returns to text above)

  • (i) Based upon first appearance in Jewish Year Book for 2006.

  • (ii) The Congregation last appears in the Jewish Year Book for 2009. However, its address, 122 Cazenove Street, is subsequently the address of the Nachlei Emunah Chasidey Kretchnif, which first appears in the Jewish Year Book for 2010. Although it is probable that Nachlei Emunah acquired the premises from the Congregation, which then ceased to be active, it is possible that there was a change of name of the Congregation.
