Welcome to Westminster Synagogue                                                   

Westminster Synagogue is a warm and welcoming independent community, which allows its members to practise Judaism in their own way without criticism or judgment.  Our members are culturally diverse and come from many countries.  Whilst they may have come from a variety of Jewish backgrounds, in our Synagogue they enjoy a Jewish life that combines traditional roots and a progressive approach. 

A key feature of Westminster Synagogue is its founding principles. Their clarity and passion guided the Synagogue’s rabbis – Harold Reinhart, Albert Friedlander and Thomas Salamon – throughout their ministries and serve to inspire Rabbi Benji Stanley and Rabbi Kamila Kopřivová in their spiritual leadership of the community.

We invite you to explore our site, learn more about our community and its educational and cultural programmes, and to visit us at our beautiful home in Knightsbridge in the heart of London. If you'd like to meet with one of our Rabbis, please click here.
 

Executive producer: Patrick Bernhart, Director: Pamela Sturhoofd, Camera and editing: Ivar Waleveld
