Hadley Wood Jewish Community


Lancaster Avenue, Hadley Wood, EN4. The site was acquired in 2002 and the synagogue was ready for use in 2003, being refurbished and enlarged in 2009.

Current Status:


When Founded:

The Congregation commenced life as an offshoot of Cockfosters and N Southgate Synagogue in the mid 1990s, when Jewish inhabitants of the Hadley Wood area joined together to hold services in members' homes. Later services were also held, particular on High Holy, in other facilities, including Hadley Wood Junior School, until the congregation acquired its own premises in 2002/3. The congregation continued to be a satellite congregation of the Cockfosters and N Southgate Synagogue until it become a independent congregation in 2012.
