THE NEW LONDON SYNAGOGUE offers a unique blend of tradition and modernity. We are traditional in practice and non-judgmental in outlook. It is a special blend that we think is contemporary Judaism at its best.
The Synagogue in St. John's Wood close to the centre of London, was opened in 1881 and is one of the most beautiful in London and a joy to pray in. We are affiliated to Masorti Judaism and the World Council of Conservative Judaism.

SHABBAT CLUB AND HOT DOG AND KUGEL KIDDUSH – 14 DECEMBER 2013
The next Shabbat Club on 14 December 2013, will be followed by a Hot Dog and Kugel Kiddush for the whole community to celebrate the success of our Cheder under the leadership of Angela Gluck. We now have over 90 children in the Cheder and hope as many of them as possible (and their parents), together with the Cheder staff, will come along to celebrate their achievements (and we promise that the hot trolley has now been cleaned out and all the aromas will be delicious and inviting).
50TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS - 19 JANUARY 2014
Our inaugural event to launch the celebrations for our anniversary year will be on 19 January 2014 when we will have a Service for the Induction of our new Chazan, Cantor Jason Green and a Civic Service.
The children of our cheder will be singing and we hope to be dedicating a newly planted tree to mark Tu B’Shevat.
Tickets were posted out to the community last week. Please contact the Office if you have not received yours. If you are in touch with former members or anyone who had their Bar/Bat Mitzvah or Wedding here and who would like to be at this Service, please ask them to contact Jo Velleman, firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 November 2013 for tickets.

NLS - NEW LONDON SINGERS !!
It is not too late to join us !
We would love some more male voices.
So, if you love to sing, love Jewish music and can sing on-key, and reproduce musical phrases, this is the choir for you.
You will enjoy the unique and extremely gratifying experience of being a part of our new choral group, run by Cantor Jason Green (..............whether or not you can read music)
A musical event is being planned for early next year, as part of our 50th anniversary celebrations, in which the New London Singers will perform.
Pre-recorded learning tracks (mp3s) and printed sheet music will always be provided. The pace of learning will be challenging without being overwhelming, and that means we will always make good progress and feel proud to belong. Try it out - and bring along friends !
Rehearsals are on Mondays, 19.30 to 21.00, in the hall. For more info, contact Jason at 020 7328 1026 or e-mail email@example.com.
