Become a Member

We want to offer new and prospective members a choice of ways in which to find a comfortable place for themselves within West London Synagogue.



Why Volunteer

There is a well-known aphorism in the ‘Sayings of the Sages’ about the core values of Judaism - ‘The world is preserved because of three things: Torah, worship and deeds of loving kindness’.




West London Synagogue welcomes anyone with the right motivation, who is considering becoming a ‘Jew by choice’.
