The same meeting of the MJRC on 6 December 1938 to which Arthur Kershaw had been invited to outline his plans for a hostel in south Manchester was attended by another group of friends, this one led by Eli Fox, with proposals for the creation of a hostel to the north of the city. They had links to Chief Rabbi's Religious Emergency Council which was the organisational base for the ‘manifold activities’ of the ‘inspired idealist’ and maverick British orthodox rabbi, Dr Solomon Schonfeld. Whether by design or by the chance circumstances of their origins, the two hostels created came to represent the two poles of Manchester orthodox observance.
