Chaverim, Friends, Community members, leadership and Masorti. As you know over the last 18 months Elstree & Borehamwood Masorti Community has matured into a well-respected synagogue in the local area.
The vision and dream of Elstree & Borehamwood Masorti Community and its leadership is to provide the best that Masorti Judaism has to offer by creating a growing, warm and non-judgemental community without pre-determined stereotypes.
Rabbi Danny Newman has been a fundamental part of this growth. As a young vibrant community with lots to offer to families, friends and the wider community we would also like to learn from more experienced and mature communities.
It gives us great pleasure at this stage to announce that we have started talks with Edgware Masorti Synagogue and are looking at a possible merger, which we believe would be a perfect match. There may be some differences now, however, through discussion, understanding, compassion and development we believe that we can find common ground that will not only assist with future growth but also determine a force for good in the community for those who desire a traditional Jewish life with a modern and youthful approach.
With our energy and Edgware's experience we feel that these combinations can only bring a new sense of security to the wider local community.
We are continually working hard to create and grow which will enable everyone to enhance themselves within the community both spiritually and physically. We will be giving more information as we know it, however we wanted to let you know that we would continue to be located in Borehamwood.
