Finsbury Park Synagogue was founded in 1884 at 20 Portland Road, Finsbury Park N4 and became a member of United Synagogue as Finsbury Park District Synagogue in 1934, when it moved to Princess Crescent, Finsbury Park N4. However, during the Second World War this building sustained some bomb damage. Eventually, in 1960, it moved to its present site at 220 Green Lanes N4, near Manor House.
Although still on the same site, it now occupies part of the ground floor of the front block of a housing development that was completed in September 2006, with the new Synagogue actually opening for services on 24th June 2006. Entry to the Synagogue is step-free to allow easy access for wheelchair users.
Our shul is multi functional with moveable furniture. We do hire the hall for meetings, birthday parties and other events and activities..
"The choice humankind faces in every age is between the idea of power and the power of ideas. Judaism has always believed in the power of ideas" - Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks z"l
