There have been Jews in Dublin since 1232, when Henry III appointed Peter de Rivall ‘custodian of the king’s Judaism in Ireland’. While the community now numbers some 1500 , its members have contributed disproportionately to life in the capital.As we walk through ‘Little Jerusalem’ I’ll tell you the amazing story of the ‘Harrington Plan’ – hatched in the 1650’s – which would have literally made Ireland the new Israel – a home for the Jews We’ll also take in a visit to the boyhood home of Chaim Herzog – later President of Israel .We’ll then call at the Irish Jewish Museum – which so eloquently documents the triumphs and the tragedies of Dublin’s Jews: And of course no visit to Jewish Dublin would be complete without a coffee and a bagel at the city’s only kosher-style establishment – the Bretzel Bakery in Lennox Street. . . Lehitraot B’Dublin!

Some Residents Dismayed As An Bord Pleanla Passes Expansion Plans For Dublin Building By Majority Decision

Some residents of Dublins Portobello area have reacted with dismay to a decision by An Bord Pleanála to approve plans for a much larger Irish Jewish Museum on the site of five terraced Victorian houses on Walworth Road.
Rejecting 11 separate appeals by local residents against the scheme, the board took the view that it would not injure property in the vicinity or pose a risk of flooding due to a 6m deep basement excavation and would be acceptable in terms of traffic.
It set revised conditions, including a full architectural survey of the exteriors and interiors of the buildings proposed for demolition, a limit on the height of rooftop plant and a mobility management plan to encourage the use of sustainable transport.
The board said it took into account the pattern of development in the vicinity, the established synagogue and museum use and historic cultural connections with the area, the planning history of the site and the overall design of the proposed development.
In his 77-page report on the case, which included a three-day oral hearing, senior An Bord Pleanála planning inspector Tom Rabbette concluded that the expanded museum would be a significant cultural asset to Portobello and the city.
Normally, decisions by the appeals board can only be judicially reviewed in the High Court where a point of law is involved.
