Image of Kehillah: photography by Nudrat Afza

Home to so many German Jews in the 19th century, the warehouse district they created in Bradford is still called Little Germany. The city's synagogue built in 1880 in an unusual Moorish style, is a grade II-listed building, which almost shut down in 2013 unable to afford roof repairs - until the Muslim community raised funds to cover costs. A £103,000 lottery grant followed. Manningham based photographer Nudrat Afza, embarked on her project to photograph what felt like the synagogue's final chapter. The photographs, all black and white, are a mixture of modern and traditional. Her exhibition, Kehillah, which can mean congregation or community in Hebrew, is supported by Arts Council England.
