Honorary Life President Len Shulman celebrated his 90th birthday recently. The synagogue marked this occasion by dedicating the upstairs room at the shul to him. To mark this special day a birthday tea was held in the synagogue. The tea was well attended and an excellent time had by all.
On Sunday May 3rd 2009 our community was honoured with an informal visit to the synagogue Overstone Road by the Chief Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks and Lady Sacks. This was the first visit by a Chief Rabbi to Northampton in over 20 years.
