A statement from the Reform Judaism Board of Trustees:
“Our mission is to support all Reform Judaism communities and we are committed to a unified and growing national Reform Jewish movement. We are therefore disappointed that the President and Board of West London Synagogue, a constituent member of Reform Judaism, have stated their intention to suspend the synagogue’s membership. We are giving our full attention to a considered and proper response directly to the community.”

The following note was sent to Synagogue Chairs and Vice-Chairs and Rabbis and Cantors:
We would like to give you an update regarding the news you will have seen last week concerning West London Synagogue for British Jews.

We value your support and patience during this time.
We hope to give a fuller update in due course.
