My great great grandfather Posimensky was a cabinet maker who helped found the Spitalfields Great Synagogue

Hello:

My name is Eliav. I am looking for information regarding my family who migrated to England in the end of the 19th century.

The family name is Posimensky. According to a diary that my great grandfather wrote, his father was one of the founders of the Machzike Hadath congregation (whose synagogue in Brick Lane, once a Huguenot chapel, was also known as Spitalfields Great Synagogue and is now a mosque). 

He was also a cabinet maker in the East End so maybe there is information about a Jewish cabinet makers trade union.

I can also send you parts of the diary if it is any use to you

Will be glad for any help

Thank you 

Eliav Schmulewitz
