Founder of Duke's Place Synagogue, London born in Breslau died in London 1756 brother of Rabbi Uri Phoebus (Aaron Hart ), chief rabbi of the Ashkenazic Jews of England. During the high-treasurership of Lord Godolphin in the reign of Queen Anne, a government appointment was conferred upon Hart, and thereby he attained to great affluence. In 1722, being actuated by religious zeal and by the fact that the London Jewish community had outgrown its temporary house of prayer, Hart contributed a liberal sum, which covered the cost of erecting a permanent edifice. This was the first building of the Great Synagogue, London it was inaugurated on New-Year's eve, 1722.
