Building Project

Building Project

Thanks to the continued support and contributions of members and friends Highgate created an outstanding new building in 2016 that met our full range of communal needs for this and future generations.

A synagogue is only as vibrant as its members and we have a uniquely tight-knit community at Highgate. This is why we wanted to build on the strengths that we have so far created and construct a building for all the community – a gift for future generations from the entire membership. 

Contributing to the Project

If you would like to contribute to the Building Project Fund please download a pledge form, complete and return it to the office. 

There are a wide range of giving options including spreading your giving over a five-year period so that, for example, a £1,500 pledge will cost you under £5 per week.

If you are a basic taxpayer every pound you give (unless from a charity account or trust) is worth £1.25 to the synagogue so a £1,000 donation is worth £1,250 after Gift Aid relief. If you are a higher rate taxpayer you are likely to be able to claim tax relief on your next tax return.
