United Synagogue president Simon Hochhauser has bemoaned the large number of "no shows" at a US-organised memorial tribute to Lady Jakobovits.
Athough almost 1,000 people turned out for the event at St John's Wood Synagogue last month, 400 people booked tickets but did not attend.
At Monday's US council meeting, Edgware representative Silvia Hartman said: "The evening was well done but I was absolutely and totally distressed at the amount of people that were not there.
"The community was not properly informed. It was a throwaway line in our own shul and we're a huge community."
