This weekend marks the Jewish celebration of Rosh Hashanah, the New Year celebration in the Jewish calendar, and the start of a holy period leading up to Yom Kippur.
The Jewish community has long had, and continues to have, a significant presence in the Borough, and they have made many contributions to London. Although activities have been disrupted by COVID, in Camden there are:
- Jewish Museum London
- JW3 Jewish Community Centre
- Synagogues, including: South Hampstead Synagogue, Belsize Square Synagogue, New London Synagogue
- Brondesbury Park Eruv, with approved eruvin for South Hampstead & St Johns Wood (What is an eruv?)
To the Jewish community we wish Shanah Tovah, or Happy New Year.
