   Report of expenditures by charities connected with the Spanish and Portuguese Jews' Synagogue. The Spanish & Portuguese Jews' Congregation of London traces its origin back to the famous Petition presented to Cromwell in 1656 by Rabbi Menasseh Ben Israel, from Holland, and six of the 'secret Jews' (Marranos) living in London. For the first time since the expulsion in 1290 Jews were permitted to live and worship openly in England. The first Jewish house of worship of the resettlement of the Jews in England was opened in 1656 in the upper floor of a house in Creechurch Lane, which is but a stone's throw from the present Synagogue in Bevis Marks.
