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

Our Vision

A vibrant, diverse, unified British-Jewish community, inspired by and engaged with Jewish arts, culture, learning and life.

Our Mission

To increase the quality, variety and volume of Jewish conversation in London and beyond.

We seek to achieve this by offering multiple entry points into Jewish life, culture and community for the widest possible range of people; and programming outstanding events, activities, classes and courses – the diversity of which reflects the diversity of our community.

Our Core Values

These six values shape our culture, guide how we behave and inform our decision-making. They are at the heart of the way we work, driving how we act as individuals and as an organisation:

  • Community – קהילה
  • Inclusivity – הכללה
  • Creativity – יצירתיות
  • Lovingkindness – חסד
  • Collaboration - שיתוף פעולה
  • Leading by Example – דוגמא אישית
