A message from Andrew Farleigh (Chairman)

Recent unbelievable events in Israel over the past few days have galvanised the Jewish Community around the world to support those who are supporting people in Israel who need our help.

The Management Team at Kol Chai wishes to draw your attention to the following TWO Charities, both of whom support those in need in Israel. Both of the Charities below automatically increase your donation by 25% (if you are a UK taxpayer) with Gift Aid.


(Charity Reg. No. 1113409)
Magen David Adom provide emergency services and support throughout Israel wherever it is required. They are currently on very high alert and their website will be busy.

Magen David Adom DONATE


MyIsrael is a charity that supports many small projects within Israel that fall “under the radar” – and is probably just as important as the main “headline” charities. Their work supports those that really need our help. – especially now at this time of conflict.


We encourage you all to donate, in whatever amount you can afford. Please show your support and solidarity with Israel by donating to either of these Charities, using their online donation form links.

If you do not get through – please try again a little later. They really need our support right now.

Andrew Farleigh – Chairman

On behalf of the Management Team

Kol Chai Hatch End Reform Jewish Community


A Community Focused
on People

We are a warm, informal,  inclusive and multi-generational community committed to nurturing our Jewish lives,  connecting to each other and engaging with the world.  Wherever you are on your Jewish journey you can find a home  here – just come as you are.  Join us to celebrate our lives and the seasons, discover real meaning and build real friendships.  We welcome new members of all ages, especially young families, and special subscription rates can be offered if needed. Also, if you are concerned about joining us at Kol Chai because you’re not currently enrolled with a burial scheme, either the Joint jewish Burial Society or another, we may be able to help here too.

Helen, our membership secretary, would be pleased to talk it through with you and see if we can help.

Kol Chai is more than a synagogue, it’s a community made up of families from a wide area, Hatch End, Stanmore, London Borough of Harrow, Pinner, Northwood, Chorleywood, Bushey to name a few. We have many different cultural and entertainment activities which can be seen in greater detail on the website. Our services are streamed online for the convenience of those members unable to travel to the synagogue. A Zoom link is sent out weekly to members.

We are a welcoming, friendly, inclusive community and would love to see you at one of our services or events. Our recently formed youth club Sababa is thriving and they meet regularly.
