Radlett Reform Synagogue celebrated its golden 50th-anniversary last month, with a special Mincha service looking back on the history of the Synagogue.
The 50th-anniversary service took place on November 28 and the service was followed by a Doughnut and Latke tea, lighting of the first candle and addresses by Rabbi Paul Freedman and Synagogue president Barry Hyman.
Worshippers got an insight into the past history of the synagogue and community, which began as the Bushey Heath Reform Community in November 1971.
Rabbi Freedman said: “’It was a delight to honour our founder members this way. Due to the current restrictions, we were only 100 or so but we hope to re-celebrate next year. If the Olympics can be delayed by a year so can we!”
The community, which started with 26 founding families, now has over 2000 adults and children and is one of the largest Reform Communities
