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.
The community is led by Rabbi Elchonon Feldman and his wife Jacqueline, as well as Chairman, Frances Grossman, and a Board of Management.
One of the best kept secrets in the United Synagogugue, we are surronded 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!
This week at Belmont
Along with the Chief Rabbi, we are counting down the days to ShabbatUK. The action starts with The Great Challah Make at Allianz Stadium on Thursday 23 October. At Belmont we start with Kabbalat Shabbat at 5:34pm on Friday 24 October, followed by dinner for over 300 people in homes across the community.
On Saturday morning the service will start at the slightly earlier time of 9:00am and feature guest chazan Adrian Alexander and the Belmont choir. We will be joined for the service by the Mayor of Harrow Ajay Maru, our local MP, Bob Blackman and local Councillors Manji Kara, Lynda Seymour and Amir Moshenson.
Following the service we will have a celebratory lunch for over 300 people, during which we will honour our Chatanim and N'Seil Chayil. Our guest speaker at the lunch will be Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis.
Following lunch and before Mincha and Maariv we have five onegim at local homes with a variety of speakers and activities. ShabbatUK in Belmont will conclude with Havdallah and a first haircut for three year old Yehuda Feldman.
During the Summer, Belmont's young photographers went on a shooting tour of old Jewish London. Their photos are displayed in the Lounge and you can see them here right now.
