Mosaic Jewish Community (Mosaic) are thrilled to announce that Harrow Council approved plans last week for their new home on Stanmore Hill. Stanmore Hill will allow Mosaic Community to finally fulfil the dream of creating a truly open and pluralistic community, in which all Jews of different non-orthodox denominations and those of no specific denomination, can find their home. It will bring the three strands of Jewish tradition and practise from Liberal, Masorti and Reform Synagogues into one building with an overarching administration, education, security and social hub.
Mosaic was formed in 2014 to choose this different path and moving to a new home has been an aspiration and essential part of the future as current and the next generation of members move north in the borough of Harrow and to Bushey and beyond.
The flexible, multi-functional and sustainable building will exemplify the open ethos of the community, allowing each member to express their own unique Jewish identity in the prayer, social action, education and social activities, through choice, to reflect the synagogue ethos of ‘choose your Jewish life’.
It has been intelligently designed that we can reconfigure the space for up to 5 prayer halls for Shabbat and other services, 10 classrooms, a coffee shop / drop in centre with activity rooms, or as one single space for when the whole community comes together – a truly unique Jewish building that matches the trailblazing nature of Mosaic Community.
Mosaic will be working closely with Heronslea, a well-respected and local developer, to bring this new community home to fruition.
