Notes & Sources ( returns to text above)

  • (i) The congregation began styling itself as the Mosaic Mosorti Synagogue (and also appears to have retained use of its old name) in 2018, although it had joined the Masaic Community (see below) in 2014.

  • (ii) Congregation's website, accessed from 18 May 2018 through 2 January 2020. (The Jewish Year Book 2015 gave the congregation's address as 39 Bessborough Road, Harrow HA1 3BS, the address of the Mosaic Reform Synagogue, but this appears incorrect.)

  • (v) From its first appearance in Jewish Year Books in 1999, the congregation was listed under the Assembly of Masorti Synagogues (AMS). In AMS's annual report for 2007 there is a note of the change of status (see note (xii) below).

  • (xv) See links to Masorti Judaism's annual reports. Some of these figures show no change from the previous year, which seems unlikely and it is assumed that the current year's figure was not available and the previous year's figure was repeated. Also, these figures appear higher than the figures for the above reports and presumably include more than one member per household.
