New Rabbic Couple
Belmont Synagogue is delighted to announce that the community voted overwhelmingly to invite Rabbi Marc and Lisa Levene to become its new Rabbinic couple. They will take up their post immediately after Purim.
Welcome to Belmont online!
Belmont Synagogue is an orthodox community of six hundred families in north-west London founded in the mid-1960s. We have a wide range of communal activities including daily services, educational programmes and special activities for all age groups.
Until recently, the community is led by Rabbi Elchonon Feldman and his wife Jacqueline, as well as Chairman, David Lerner, and a Board of Management.
One of the best kept secrets in the United Synagogue, we are surrounded by excellent Jewish primary and secondary schools.
Belmont is also surrounded by an eruv, which connects to other local eruvim and makes it easier to celebrate Shabbat with friends and family.
You will find more about Belmont on this website but the best way to get to know us it to visit. We promise you a very warm welcome.
