History of the Synagogue

HEMS (now Mosaic Masorti) was founded in 1998 by a small group of families.

Our first Rabbi was David Soetendorp who served as our Rabbi in 2007 and 2008, having retired as the Rabbi of Bournemouth Reform Synagogue.

Rabbi Paul Arberman served the community from 2010 until 2017 when he and his family relocated to Florida.

In 2014 we signed up as a constituent synagogue within Mosaic Jewish Community.

Rabbi Natasha Mann served the community from 2019 to 2022.

Rabbi Anthony Lazarus Magrill currently serves the community.

We are now based in Stanmore together with Mosaic Reform and Mosaic Liberal Synagogues as part of the next stage in the evolution of our community
