NPJC was founded in 1965 and the Synagogue built in 1970. We now have a membership of some 135 families, and a wide range of religious, cultural, social and educational activities take place here.
We are particularly proud of our impressive bimah with its striking features and of our beautiful stained glass windows, donated by some of our members.
In the entrance hall is our 'etz' created by textile artist and NPJC member Kathy Sylvester using a variety of sophisticated stitching techniques. Further information on the Etz Chaim can be read here.
For the rear of the main hall our children made a Mosaic on the theme of 'What it means to be Jewish' - click here to read the story of how this was created.
The building includes meeting rooms and classrooms as well as a library and refurbished kitchen facilities. Our building is accessible by wheelchair users and we have disabled toilet facilities and an induction loop.
The Synagogue is managed by a Council and various committees which meet regularly. We are affiliated to Liberal Judaism (LJ) and affiliated to the Board of Deputies of British Jews. For a copy of our constitution, please click here.
