Today marks the Jewish Festival of Yom Kippur. Many Jews in Belfast would have celebrated this festival at the Greenville Hall Synagogue, located on Annesley Street.

This was opened in 1904 and was the second synagogue in Belfast, the first being on Great Victoria Street.

When the Greenville Hall building was constructed, there were around 700 Jews resident in Belfast.

The synagogue closed in 1965.

It is today a B2 listed building.
