The Grinna Shul


I found that I also had taken some pictures myself of the Grinne Shul. Granted it looks a bit sad – must have been pretty close to its demise - but at least they are images we can keep on the website to remember it and those that regularly worshipped there like Leon Chonin’s grandfather Lipi Weinstein

Trevor Toube writes: I once, as a small boy, went to the Grinne shul with my father (Abe Toube) on Simchat Torah .... and afterwards was distressed to see all these respectable [and in my eyes elderly] men getting drunk afterwards behind the bimah!
