Welcome to  Radlett Reform Synagogue

We are a vibrant, innovative, young-at-heart Reform Jewish community of over 850 families, comprising just over 2,300 adults and children throughout South Herts and the neighbouring regions.

We provide for the religious and spiritual needs of members through services and other activities including social and educational activities. In particular, we value children, youth and young people as a significant part of our community and provide engaging and stimulating activities to meet their needs.

We welcome new members, inspiring and retaining those who might otherwise be estranged from Judaism and the Jewish Community.
