Young Families

Edgware & Hendon Reform Synagogue welcome you join our Young Families Community. Our Young Families programme runs events, groups and support for you and your little ones. Get involved to give your little munchkins a taste of our wonderfully welcoming and fun family events, a fantastic opportunity to meet other young Jewish Families. We work closely with our Education Director, Youth Workers, Nagila nursery and of course our Rabbis to make every meeting special for the whole family.

COVID19 UPDATE: We will be continuing to run in a way that we are comfortable with to make sure everyone is as safe as can be in regards to Covid regulations. All toys and surfaces will be cleaned, there will be plenty of hand sanitiser and we ask adults to wear masks when moving between activities and around the building. Sitting with your children, you may remove them if you feel comfortable. For Kiddush we will continue to give out individually wrapped Challah rolls and all our refreshments will be in individual packets. Lastly we are still limiting numbers to what feels appropriate to the space we are in.

For all event dates, times, info and sign up. Please visit and LIKE our Facebook page EHRS Young Families.

For more information or for any questions please contact our Young Families Lead Sarah Koster, youngfamilies@ehrs.uk. We hope to see you at one of our events soon.
