The Jewish life in London is concentrated mainly in the Borough of Barnet (northern part of Outer London) which is about 15% Jewish. Synagogues, kosher restaurants and shops and various Jewish institutions are most typical for the suburb of Golders Green, although the Jewish life is spreading to other parts of Barnet as well (notably Finchley).
Kosher restaurants in Golders Green serve Israeli (Dizengoff) as well as ethnic (Met Su Yan oriental, Kavanna Indian) and obviously traditional European Jewish cuisine.

Thanks to very high birth-rates within the chareidi community the Jewish population of Hackney is growing fast (doubling approx every 17 years).
London Borough of Haringey has also significant Jewish population.
Among the most important synagogues in London are the Bevis Marks Synagogue (2 Henage St., Aldgate tube) and The New West End Synagogue (St. Petersburgh Place, Bayswater tube).

I have electronics, laptop, tablet, printers, I need as a writer, and also want some household items for an apt. with me.

No idea who to contact for apt. search and for Customs requirements.
