Administrative/Biographical history:

In 1929 the Edgware Synagogue, a constituent of the United Synagogue, was founded, using a temporary building in Mowbray Road. The congregation expanded rapidly towards the end of the Second World War and in 1957 a large building in Edgware Way was built. The synagogue became a District Synagogue in 1937, and a Constituent Synagogue in 1954.
