GOLDERS Green synagogue, a well-known building central to Jewish heritage in London, could be put up for sale later this year.
United Synagogue, which runs the Dunstan Road base, has held a meeting to discuss selling off the listed building.
The synagogue says the building no longer meets the needs of the community and could be sold off to pay for a new development at the back of the site. Alternatively, land could be sold to fund a revamp.
Chairwoman Jacqui Zinkin said: "The community consultation proved extremely fruitful and we are investigating a number of the ideas presented by our members.

The building was commended in an English Heritage guide entitled Jewish Heritage in London published in November 2006.
