A leading lift company has secured a contract with the United Synagogue to install a lift in St John's Wood Synagogue, north London, that is in compliance with Shabbat law.
The deal with Amalgamated Lifts follows the success of a previous contract for a disabled lift at Stanmore and Cannons Park Synagogue. The lifts operate automatically from sunset on Friday until sunset on Saturday. Additionally, it must still comply with the strict rules and regulations in keeping with disabled lift installations in the UK.

Sir Gerald Kaufman has claimed he was verbally attacked at St John's Wood Synagogue on Yom Kippur over his political views.
He made the allegations at a Middle East Monitor and Labour Friends of Palestine fringe meeting at the Labour Conference in Manchester on Sunday.
The Labour MP for Manchester Gorton, who regularly criticises Israel, described himself as a "Zionist" and "bad Orthodox Jew" and said he had been a member of the shul for 49 years.

Sixteen Muslims and 18 Jews attended a post-Eid and Yom Kippur get-together at the New London Synagogue in St John's Wood.
Organised by Alif-Aleph (British Muslims and Jews), with the Coexistence Trust and the Cambridge Centre for Muslim-Jewish Relations, the event explored similarities in prayer and the question: "How does fasting at Ramadan and Yom Kippur help us to make moral decisions afterwards?" The discussion was led by New London's Rabbi Jeremy Gordon and Sheikh Michael Mumisa from the Cambridge centre.
