Kol Nefesh Masorti Synagogue

Kol Nefesh is an inclusive, dynamic, egalitarian, Masorti community located in Edgware, North West London. We aim to provide a platform for critical Jewish study, to challenge minds and enliven souls.

Kol Nefesh services can be followed from any traditional Ashkenazi prayer book. Both men and women are encouraged to lead all elements of the service. Children are made very welcome at synagogue: we run services for the under 5s and under 11s and a discussion group for those over 11.

Our part-time rabbi, Joel Levy, visits us once a month from Jerusalem where he serves as the Director of the Conservative Yeshiva. Chazan Jaclyn Chernett, a founder member of our community, leads services, teaches our own lay leaders, and continues to innovate and seek out new modes of prayer.
