Extant Building

Now Central New High School for Girls. This former Jewish Synagogue is an exceptional building which fits well with the streetscape of Eskdale Terrace in Jesmond. There are identical structures of this red brick old Synagogue in London and Sunderland. The impressive colourful Hebrew fa├žade was designed by Newcastle Jewish architect Marcus Kenneth Glass in the period 1914-15. The building possesses an excellent stain glass window with a Star of David design, and is complemented with rounded sandstone arches around and below it on the ground floor. LOCAL LIST
