Merger Project

Introduction

Following some initial discussions between elected officers from Woodford Liberal Synagogue (WLS) and Bet Tikvah (BT), the possibility of a merger is being discussed in more detail.

On 29th January 2015, WLS held an EGM for all members where council outlined details of the intitial discussions, the reasons for holding them, and how they will be taken forward. That meeting agreed in principle to continuing the discussions to develop a formal proposal for members to vote on. It was agreed that council will keep members informed on progress and a verbal update was provided at the AGM on 21st May.

In order to keep our members informed, WLS will publish further updates on this page.

Updates
