Located in Northampton, this building was built in 1884, and designed by Phipps, who was also responsible for The Savoy and Her Majesty’s Theatre in London.
Errol Flynn’s first performance was at this theatre, but here we present it as a Synagogue, ready for Chanukah.
Chanukah (Hanukkah), also known as the Festival of Lights, is celebrated for 8 days in Nov./Dec. each year. It begins with the lighting of the ‘Servant’ Candle and one other candle of a Menorah (eight candle holder). Another candle is lit each night till all are alight. Special fried foods and traditional games are enjoyed throughout the celebrations.
The sign reads ‘May your holiday be filled with joy and light.' The ceramic is highlighted with 22ct gold.
The Synagogue is a limited painting of just 50 ceramics.
