Crouch End Chavurah celebrates first batmitzvah

Crouch End Chavurah, north London’s newest Jewish community, has celebrated its first batmitzvah.

Crouch End Bat MitzvahThirteen-year-old Sadie Goswell co-led this weekend’s Shabbat service (October 27) with Rabbi Sandra Kviat, surrounded by more than 150 family, friends and well-wishers.

It was a landmark moment for the community, which affiliated to Liberal Judaism in 2011 and now has more than 50 families as members.

Rabbi Sandra said: “The occasion of our first batmitzvah is another milestone for the community to witness and share.

“Sadie's batmitzvah was an occasion for us to celebrate both her coming-of-age and our community's maturity.”
