The centrality of worship
The synagogues Maurice built were nearly always embedded within a community and often served the specific needs of institutions such as schools or old-age homes.
In the UK, the Miriam Rachel Wohl Hall at the Golders Green Beth Hamedrash was one of Maurice’s earliest projects and was named for his late mother.
Also in London, the Wohl Synagogue at Jewish Care’s Lady Sarah Cohen House and the Wohl Synagogue at JFS, one of the largest Jewish schools in Europe, are outstanding buildings which serve the whole community.
The Wohl Synagogue in Tel Aviv was a vital addition to a newly developing area.
