News & Islam News Appeal to Purchase Synagogue As you may know, the Fieldgate Street Great Synagogue, which sits right next to our Mosque, has not operated services for several years. We learnt the Synagogue’s new management were considering selling the building, and there were already other interested parties. Given its unique location we had to consider buying. Last Friday we announced we are in the process of purchasing the building. We now are requesting our community to support us with donations and Qard Hasanah. Will you support our fundraising appeal? We urgently need 1500 people to donate £1,000 each to raise £1.5 million to meet the purchase deadline of 15th July 2015. This is a unique opportunity to purchase the building for the benefit of the community. We know that many of you are already supporting us and we know that during Ramadan you are already giving heartily. “Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He may multiply it for him many times over? And it is Allah who withholds and grants abundance, and to Him you will be returned.” Al-Qur’an (2:245) What we need now is your support so that we can raise enough money to complete the purchase. How can I make a contribution? To make a Qard Hasanah payment, you can do so by visiting the East London Mosque or call us on 020 7650 3000. You can donate directly through the Mosque's JustGiving page for this cause, however Qard Hasnah payments are not accepted through JustGiving.
