About Baron Lyon de Symons

Diamond merchant

The Western Synagogue in London owes its origin to Wolf Liebman of St. Petersburg and his nephew Baron Lyon de Symons, who resided in Bedford-row and cooperated about the year 1768 in the establishment of a Minyan, which met in the private house of Liebman for nearly thirty years. In 1797 a regular congregation was established -- the first Synagogue in the West-End of London.
