Mill Hill Synagogue is the home of the Orthodox Jewish community in NW London. Its current membership is around 1,200 people.
The leader of the community is the well-known and sometimes controversial Rabbi Y Shochet, who joined Mill Hill in 1993 at the age of 28. The Jewish Chronicle described him as: "One of Anglo-Jewry's most dynamic orthodox rabbis, who has turned his synagogue into a vibrant source of religious and social activities."
The current synagogue building was built in the 1960s and is up for rebuilding in the next few years. It houses a large prayer hall and classrooms.
The site's second building, known as the Annie and Samuel Levy Hall, houses a large function hall, kosher kitchens and the Synagogue offices. It is named after the parents of Lord Levy.
