The Finchley Reform synagogue is a vibrant and diverse reform community based in North London, which has recently celebrated its fiftieth anniversary. The spiritual leadership is provided by Principle Rabbi Miriam Berger, Cantor Zoe Jacobs, Rabbi Howard Cooper and Rabbi Jeffery Newman. The synagogue has always liked to take the lead in responding to contemporary issues and is deeply involved in all matters relating to Israel.
“Finchley Reform Synagogue is a dynamic thriving community based in North West London. It has a well earned reputation for social action and is firmly committed to the age old Jewish traditions of Tzedakah, Gemilut Chasidim and Tikun Olam (repairing the world).
Because of this background and ethos, we are delighted to have become the first Synagogue to join UK Task Force. We passionately believe in, and support the democratic state of Israel and a key part of that democracy, which fits in with our profile, is enshrined in the 1948 Declaration of Independance: The State of Israel will…”promote the development of the country for ALL its citizens” and… “will uphold the full social and political equality of ALL its citizens”.
We are really excited about our association with UK Task Force and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship.”
