The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY NEWS - BY SI­MON ROCKER

RE­FORM SYN­A­GOGUES have re­ported an in­crease in the num­ber of peo­ple watch­ing High Holy-Day ser­vices on­line.

Alyth (North-Western Re­form Syn­a­gogue) in Gold­ers Green more than dou­bled its web fol­low­ing.

Whereas 188 peo­ple tuned into the main ser­vice and 97 for the “Big Bang” al­ter­na­tive ser­vice last year, this year’s num­bers climbed to 392 and 323 re­spec­tively.

For the first day of Rosh Hashanah at West Lon­don, num­bers were up from 88 last year to 123.

Finch­ley Re­form Syn­a­gogue en­joyed a rise from 70 to 80, with view­ers log­ging in from USA, Spain, Ja­pan, Ire­land, Swe­den and Is­rael.

Radlett Re­form Syn­a­gogue also said on­line num­bers had risen.

Nine Re­form syn­a­gogues and one Lib­eral shul are stream­ing High HolyDay ser­vices.
