New London Synagogue

The New London Synagogue is a traditional Anglo-Jewish congregation. Our mainservice is led by a professional Chazan (cantor) and seeks to maintain the finest musical traditions of Anglo Jewry. Our building in St. John’s Wood was opened in 1881 and is one of the most beautiful synagogues in London.

Our services are traditional in style and we use the Singer’s prayer book. Men and women sit separately with parallel seating downstairs and a Ladies Gallery upstairs. Women are counted in the minyan and encouraged to say kaddish. We also have a regular alternative service – Minyan Chadash – which has mixed seating, is less formal and offers leadership roles to both men and women.

We are a growing community with lots of new members, young families, a vibrant cheder (religion school), study and cultural opportunities, and a popular programme for conversion to Judaism. Our community is led by Rabbi Jeremy Gordon – who grew up at New London and received his rabbinic ordination from the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York.
