ELELS is a community, as well as a congregation. We are single, married, widowed and divorced. We are LGBTQ, and we are straight. We are single parents, interfaith families, coupled parents, Jews by birth and Jews by choice. We are people with disabilities and people without. We are locally based in Redbridge, and living further afield throughout North East London, Essex and beyond. We are proud of this diversity and seek to be responsive to our community to provide a variety of ways for each individual to express their Judaism.
