    In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Maida Vale was a significant Sephardic Jewish district to the extent that an 1878 magazine report reported that it was commonly called “New Jerusalem”. The 1896 Spanish & Portuguese Synagogue, a Grade II listed building and headquarters of the British Sephardi community, is on Lauderdale Road.
