Late in 1938, by the prompting of its secretary, Morris Feinmann, the Home for Aged, Needy and Incurable Jews and Temporary Shelter in Cheetham Hill, decided to offer accommodation to thirty German Jewish refugees. With the purchase of a house next to its existing buildings and adjacent to the Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue, the Home's Board of Management believed that its facilities now made it possible to ‘undertake this humanitarian work both efficiently and economically’, that the gesture would receive the good will of the community, and that the necessary financial support would be readily raised.
