Article in "TheJC" by Daniel Finkelstein regarding his life at HRS
It was sunny morning on Saturday, 15th July 2017 when Edgware and Hendon Reform Synagogue held their special Shabbat and Civic Service. The two local MPs, two mayors, local and national dignitaries joined over 600 people in this memorable celebration.
Organiser of the day Jeffery Fisher said: “The lovely Service was both moving and inspiring, and everyone looks forward in the future to a vibrant and successful new community." All four rabbi’s and members of both the old Hendon Reform Synagogue and Edgware Reform & District Synagogue contributed make this a true celebration and a coming together.
Rabbi Steven Katz said: ‘We at HRS are all very much looking forward to joining family and friends at EDRS and sharing our resources, energy and will to respond to the religious, welfare and social needs of our new expanded congregation while at the same time reaching out to engage with the community beyond.’
