The Jewish Community Centre for London (to be known as JW3 upon opening) was initiated by Dame Vivien Duffield following an inspirational visit to the Jewish Community Centres of North America in 2002.
The UK project began life as a feasibility study commissioned by the Foundation. This revealed a need for a recreational, non denominational space for Jews in London, based on similar centres in other European countries and in the United States.
Following a launch event in October 2003, the project became a separate charity in 2004.
Architects Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands have now created an outstanding design for the JCC's new home on the Finchley Road, which will open in September 2013.
