The Mosaic Jewish Community was formed by the constituent synagogues in 2014,(viii) although the process of coming together as a single community was a gradual one, not finally achieved until the move to the Stanmore Hill complex in 2022.

The constituent synagogues are respectively members of Masorti Judaism, the Movement for Reform Judaism and Liberal Judaism (the latter two organisations having announced in April 2023 their intention to merge).
