Many members of the Jewish community in East London, including many in Civil Defence uniforms, gather a few days after the end of Passover to remember Myer Cash, who was killed in an air raid. Myer Cash was a member of the Synagogue Board of Management and was very well-respected. Reverend Barnett Joseph, the minister of South Hackney Synagogue reads the address. In the warden's box (on the right of the photograph) before the Almenor, sit representatives of the various friendly societies of which Cash, a tailor by profession, was a member. Third from the right is Dr Israel Feldman, junior warden of the the Synagogue.
