Beis Gavriel Community Gets New Building

Friday, 21 July, 2017 - 5:00 am

Beis Gavriel shul in Hendon was founded by the local Lubavitch community in 2008 in memory of Rabbi Gavriel & Rivka Holtzberg HY”D who were taken by the tragic attack on Chabad of Mumbai.

The name and ethos of the shul is intended to be a constant reminder of the kind of people the Holtzbergs were; to provide positive inspiration to all. In just 9 years, Beis Gavriel has developed into a warm and diverse community of all ages and backgrounds. Under the attentive and dynamic leadership of Rabbi Menachem Junik, members and visitors are encouraged to play active roles. From shiurim to events, the spirit of unity permeates this exceptional community.

Thanks to assistance and investment of the Federation of Synagogues, as its 26th constituent shul, Beis Gavriel will be moving into significant premises on Sunningfields Road which will house a purpose-built community centre, shul, mikveh, and new state-of-the-art home for Gan Menachem, the in-house oversubscribed nursery which currently educates 70 children from both the Shul and wider community.

Rabbi Junik commented: “This is a very exciting time for our community. This move and the purchasing of a new building will provide, with Hashem’s help, greater opportunities for growth with increased shiurim, communal activities, and with a strong focus on children and youth programmes. On a personal note, I am honoured to be joining such a strong team of Rabbonim and feel proud to be affiliated with an organisation which provides so many services to the wider community.”

Shul Founder and Trustee, Mr Mendy Freundlich, further added that membership of the Federation will give Beis Gavriel “the opportunity… to provide a greater educational and social programme for our members and the community.”
