An evening of reminiscence launched the 40th anniversary celebrations of The Liberal Synagogue Elstree.
More than 100 members and friends, including Liberal Judaism chief executive Rabbi Danny Rich, packed the Hertfordshire shul to hear past and present leaders recall its history.
TLSE started life as the “wandering community” of Stanmore Liberal Jewish Congregation, with services held in a variety of private homes and halls. It moved to permanent premises in a former Elstree school in 1977 and changed its name to Hertsmere Progressive Synagogue.
