News & Islam News Synagogue Purchase Update The East London Mosque would like to thank everyone for their generous support to buy the unused Fieldgate Street synagogue building. Alhamdulillah, you will be pleased to know we completed the purchase within the deadline on the 15th July 2015. A majority of the funds required were raised through the Channel S live fundraiser and during the last ten nights of Ramadan at the Mosque: Loans (Qard Hasanah) £1.1 million Donations £0.4 million TOTAL £1.5 million Please continue to donate so we can repay the loans (Qard Hasanah). We asked everyone to try to be part of this by contributing at least £100, or whatever you can afford. No decision has been made about how the site will be redeveloped. Ideas are being gathered. Initial ideas are for a balanced development that fits with ELM ethos and history, which include community use, preservation of heritage, interfaith use - as well as to help generate income for the Mosque’s sustainability and its debt repayment. This was an unexpected blessing for our community given to us by Allah in the month of Ramadan. The response and support from the community has once again been incredible, and we take this opportunity to thank each and every person who donated towards this cause.
