Mov­ing times in Edg­ware

The Jewish Chronicle - - Community - BY MAR­CUS DYSCH

AN EDG­WARE Ma­sorti con­gre­ga­tion has found a new home, hav­ing been forced to re­lo­cate by the pro­jected clo­sure of Brady Mac­cabi youth club.

Kol Ne­fesh Ma­sorti Syn­a­gogue had held Shab­bat ser­vices at the youth cen­tre for nine years, but has now met for the first time at Jewish Care’s Leonard Sainer Cen­tre in nearby Rec­tory Lane.

“We have had fan­tas­tic co-op­er­a­tion from the staff of the cen­tre and from Jewish Care,” said con­venor Mike Fen­ster. “We’ll be mak­ing full use of the space avail­able to of­fer a range of Shab­bat and week­end ac­tiv­i­ties as well as our reg­u­lar egal­i­tar­ian tra­di­tional ser­vices.”

Over 60 mem­bers and friends at­tended the in­au­gu­ral ser­vice in the new premises.

Kol Ne­fesh had been given four weeks no­tice to quit Brady’s Manor Park Cres­cent build­ing in Jan­uary. How­ever, the con­gre­ga­tion had re­mained as Brady could not sell the prop­erty.
