We are honoured that this significant event for the city of Leeds will be held in a Synagogue, only the second time this has happened in the country. It follows the similar Synagogue Service in 2013, which marked the 60th Anniversary of the Coronation of Her Majesty the Queen. The Service in the Synagogue will be followed by a short march to the Moor Allerton War Memorial, which is on Harrogate Road almost adjacent to the synagogue, where wreaths will be laid and the Last Post will be sounded. Medals to be worn by those who serve or who have served. Medals worn in honour of another person to whom they were awarded can be worn, but these should be on the right of the chest. Hats or other headwear should be worn in the Synagogue. We look forward to you joining us for this prestigious event and for the refreshments which will be served afterwards in the Synagogue Hall. We do hope that you will be able to attend this most meaningful event, to give thanks for the victory and to remember the fallen of World War II.
