London’s JW3 Moves Toward Completion

JW3 Londonfrom The Jewish Chronicle:

Dame Vivien Duffield puts the final touches to her project

Dame Vivien Duffield claims she is tired. The new Jewish community centre for London, to be known as JW3, is approaching completion and Dame Vivien, honoured for her massive philanthropic efforts, says that this may be her last big project.

However, when she discusses JW3 and the influence she hopes it will have on the community, she seems to lack nothing in energy.

Dame Vivien’s Jewish identity is bound up with the work she does. She sees herself as a builder. As such she hopes JW3, on the Finchley Road in Swiss Cottage, will have a transformative effect on the way we interact with each other.
