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.
"Golders Green is a dynamic community and we hope to find a solution which will enhance the development of our community and respond to its needs for many years to come."
The building was commended in an English Heritage guide entitled Jewish Heritage in London published in November 2006.
