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.

This Shabbat is Chol HaMoed Sukkot and it is traditional to read the book of Kohelet/ Ecclesiastes. Time will not permit an in-depth study, but we will briefly look at the background of Kohelet, its connection to Sukkot and some of the wisdom it can offer us today. With Rabbi Neil Kraft.
Creating Magic Moments with your Child
‘Building Jewish confidence for children aged 5-10 and parents together’
2nd Sunday of the Month, 11:00-12:30 at EHRS
Judaism is beautiful when lived l’dor vador, (from generation to generation). Do you want your child to experience the best of Judaism and inspire a love that could last a life time? Come to EHRS’s brand new monthly parent and child together programme to celebrate important aspects of Jewish culture, tradition and values and meet other families from your community in an environment that is fun and meaningful for parents and children.
This programme is for families with primary school aged children (5-10) who attend Jewish day schools or mainstream schools of any type. Everyone welcome whatever your knowledge, background or family make-up.
There is no charge and you can come to any one or all sessions as you choose.
13 October - Magic of Sukkot. Helping to build and create the community sukkah. Our first session uses all of your senses and skills to help make the EHRS Sukkah beautiful. Wave the Lulav, make the decorations, hear the story and create the beautiful fruit and vegetation filled shelter that has accompanied the Jewish people at this season for 3000 years. This magic led by Rabbi Mark.
We have many services and activities for this year's Sukkot & Simchat Torah celebrations, including Family Teas, Arts & Crafts in the Sukkah, Sukkot Environmental Night, Sukkot Under The STars Chavurah Supper and a Simchat Torah Procession Party. It all kicks off with our Sukkah Decorating Party on Sunday 13 October.
