Events this week


Shalom and welcome to our Bushey Community.

We have a rich history of over 40 years, and are continuing to welcome new members of all ages. Our success and continued growth is largely due to the inspired leadership we receive from Rabbi Meir Salasnik and his wife Judy, who have led our community for over 30 years.

Our Shul is not just a community, but also an extended family, and whatever the occasion through your family life cycle events, you will find support during hard times, and celebration through joyous Simchas. It is not uncommon to find 3 (or sometimes even 4!) generations celebrating a family Simcha at Bushey, all of whom are members of our Community.

We are delighted that the refurbishment of our Shul is now complete and our newly updated facilities will continue to offer a wide and vibrant range of religious, social, educational and fun activities and events for all ages irrespective of level of observance. There is always something going on and our building is in use seven days a week for up to 18 hours a day!

As if to emphasise its importance, our Sages in Pirkei Avot (Ethics of our Fathers) tell us, not once but twice, “Do not separate yourself from the community...” (2:5 & 4:7). In welcoming you to Bushey, I hope that there will be something that appeals to you, and that you will find the opportunity to play an active part in Bushey Shul life.
