The BFM visited the Garnethill Synagogue in Hill Street, Glasgow 3. 0141 332 4151 www.garnethill.org.uk This is a fine example of a Victorian styled synagogue which was opened on September 9th 1879. It is ornately decorated inside and out, with intricately designed and finished stained glass windows, ceilings and walls. A truly enlightened place of worship.
