Elstree & Borehamwood

All the enmities in your home town

The Small Town

Fastest Growing Jewish Community in the EU

Though Elstree & Borehamwood is a small town, it has so much to offer Jewish families. There are nurseries, primary schools, secondary schools as well as Kosher food and restaurants. 

The town is also lucky enough to have easy access to Central London via the Railway, which allows many to commute to town for work. 


Shul is the focal point of Jewish life. It’s where the community has the opportunity at regular intervals to connect with HaShem and connect with each other. We are privileged in Elstree & Borehamwood to have many options for people to choose from. Everyone can find a shul that speaks to them and where they can find the particular form of inspiration they need.

Jewish Schools

As the world stands on the threshold of tumultuous times, children today need the foundation of a solid identity now more than ever before. An identity is what allows a person to find the inner strength to stand up to the pressures of negative influences, peers and existential threats. We are lucky to have Jewish schools on our doorstep.
