London's newest community and cultural centre JW3 has opened its doors to the public for the first time.
Inspired by the Jewish Community Centre (JCC) of Manhattan, JW3 has been ten years and £50m in the making.
The new building on the Finchley Road will be, in the words of Dame Vivien Duffield: "A vibrant destination for London, open to all who have an interest in Jewish life".
Funded by her Clore Duffield Foundation and other private donors, and designed by architects Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, JW3 aspires to be a place where Jewish culture is made, not just celebrated. Its vision is to be at the heart of a unified, community, inspired by and engaged in Jewish life.
