HADLEY WOOD Jewish Com­mu­nity will cel­e­brate Rosh Hashanah with the first ser­vices in its newly ex­tended premises.

The North Lon­don con­gre­ga­tion has been wor­ship­ping in tem­po­rary ac­com­mo­da­tion for the past nine months dur­ing the £500,000 pro­ject. The build­ing will for­mally re­open in Novem­ber.

Min­is­ter Rabbi Yoni Birn­baum said the 140 fam­ily con­gre­ga­tion — es­tab­lished in 2013 as an off­shoot of Cock­fos­ters and North South­gate Sy­n­a­gogue — had been sup­port­ive dur­ing the pro­ject. The build­ing had re­quired “a big change to make it fully fit for pur­pose.

“Our aim is that this should be a space to in­clude all the ac­tiv­i­ties we’ve al­ways dreamed of,” Rabbi Birn­baum ex­plained.

“We were man­ag­ing in a space that wasn’t right for what we needed.”
