Welcome to Radlett Reform Synagogue
We are a vibrant young-at-heart Reform Jewish community of over 800 families, comprising just over 2,300 adults and children and growing steadily.
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.
Rabbi Paul Freedman is our Senior Rabbi and has been at Radlett Reform Synagogue since 2004. He grew up in the Reform Movement, though he has also belonged to Liberal and Orthodox communities. He studied Physics at Bristol University and then Education at Cambridge. He taught at schools in Bristol, Bath and then Gloucester, where he was Head of Science of a large comprehensive school, before entering Leo Baeck College to train for the rabbinate.
Rabbi Celia Surget is our Associate Rabbi. Ordained in 2007, Rabbi Celia joined us in October 2011 to support our rapidly growing community. As a member of the Rabbinic team, Rabbi Celia is involved in all aspects of synagogue life, especially leading services, adult education, pastoral work and officiating at life-cycle events. Rabbi Celia also leads our flourishing Cheder and continues to develop our exciting youth provision across all ages.
