In 1936 passengers on the newly constructed Bakerloo Line making their way to Kingsbury Station from Wembley Park, as the train crossed over Fryent Way, would have seen the spire of Harrow School and to the right a development of affordable homes, priced between £600 to £800, on the recently constructed Valley Drive Estate. The first Jewish families to move in to the area were immediately concerned in establishing Hebrew classes for their children and then, by a narrow majority, to become affiliated members of the United Synagogue. Property values have, of course, increased somewhat over the years, but it is considerably cheaper than Hendon or Golders Green and only a 5/10 minute drive from those areas.

Kingsbury United Synagogue has had five Rabbis in its seventy years. The present incumbent, Rabbi Zvi Cohen, recently succeeded Rabbi Maurice Hool, who was our Rabbi for over half of the community's life.
