Jewish Community Centre London

JW3 is the first Jewish Community Centre and arts venue of its kind to exist in London. The brainchild of Dame Vivien Duffield and created by a core capital grant from the Clore Duffield Foundation, the centre opened on the Finchley Road, NW3 in October 2013.

By the end of our first year over 225,000 people had passed through our doors, and we announced the exciting news of an organisational merger with the London Jewish Cultural Centre (The LJCC) for 2015. LJCC has built a deserved reputation for being Jewish London’s leading centre for adult education, with over 1,500 students engaging in courses and classes every week. We look forward to bringing the very best of LJCC’s educational courses, cultural events and FUSION Youth programme over to the state of the art JW3 centre over the coming year.

The aim of JW3 is to transform the Jewish landscape in London by helping to create a vibrant, diverse and proud community, inspired by and engaged in Jewish arts, culture and community.

The size of our ambition is reflected both in the scale and elegance of our new building and in the creativity and energy of our programme.
