Edgware and Hendon Reform Synagogue (EHRS) is an inclusive, progressive, vibrant and welcoming Holy community, which strongly values tradition whilst responding to the challenges of modern day Jewish living.
There are so many activities and opportunities at EHRS, which make it much more than a synagogue, it is a community centre for all ages, or as someone described us, a multiplex cinema offering something for everyone.
The synagogue building is a place of worship and also a community centre with many different regular and special activities for all ages. We are delighted to offer a huge range of Synagogue services and activities to cater for all ages. These include Nagila, our Early Years Nursery; Orot, our Religion School; Youth Clubs; Uniformed Groups; our Day Centre for the elderly, plus a wide range of adult education and social groups.
