Living & Learning
At Barnet, we pride ourselves on providing exciting and stimulating educational events with world renowned speakers. Regular series of talks are held and we aim to offer something for every level of knowledge and observance, helping members to understand more of their culture and heritage and to support their practice of Judaism. Videos of most sessions are published on our BarnetUS YouTube channel.
