Prince Edward has given the new Maidenhead synagogue in Berkshire a royal opening.
According to the community's Rabbi, Dr. Romain, it's the first time in British history that a member of the royal family has officially opened a synagogue.
While many regional Jewish communities are dwindling, the Thames Valley is flourishing with over 800 families having membership.
Maidenhead is a 'reform' synagogue, which is open to Jews of all denominations and has congregants coming from across the Thames Valley.
It also opens up to non-Jewish members of the community for interfaith events and lunches for the homeless.
The synagogue is trying to position itself as community hub, rather than just a place of worship.
