Watford Interfaith Association (WIFA) is a multi-religious organisation, involving believers from the many diverse faiths across Watford. They take part in an annual Pilgrimage that incorporates the faith buildings from around the area. The participants will walk to the various buildings of prayer and finally end the Pilgrimage at Watford Synagogue, where a tea will be provided, as well as a talk and tour from a leading member of the community.
Watford and District Synagogue is set in the characteristic Nascot Village, close to both the amenities of Watford town centre and the beautiful greenery of Cassiobury Park. There has been a Jewish community in the town for almost a hundred years and yet from the ashes of the terrible flames, which destroyed the interior of the present building in 1993, grew a modern, air-conditioned shul serving approximately 200 families.
Led by Rabbi Ephraim Levine, the Watford community takes pride in its reputation as a friendly and welcoming Shul. The communal events ensure that the spectrum of ages in its membership is catered for and members living locally find that the excellent transport links makes travelling into central London, 15 miles away, effortless.
