If you are interested in conversion to Judaism, please see Choosing Judaism below.

Friends of The LJS

The LJS was the first synagogue in the UK to invite non-Jewish partners and people who have identified with the Jewish community to associate themselves with us by becoming a ‘Friend’.

Friends are welcome in all aspects of synagogue life (excluding a vote at general meetings) and their involvement and commitment to the synagogue is encouraged and valued.

The LJS remains one of the few synagogues in the UK which permits non-Jewish partners to be buried next to their Jewish partners in our cemetery. See the Cemetery section for more details.

Choosing Judaism

We welcome any individual who wishes to become Jewish. If you are interested in conversion to Judaism, please contact one of the Rabbis (020 7286 5181) or rabbispa@ljs.org) or visit a service and please introduce yourself to the Rabbi or a member of the synagogue.
