Services

Services are held each Shabbat (Friday evenings at 7.00pm and Saturday mornings at 11.00am), and we celebrate all the Festivals and hold a Communal Seder on second night Passover.

Our prayer book with its modern liturgy is called Siddur Lev Chadash, which means, literally, “Service of the New Heart”. This prayer book was introduced nearly sixteen years ago and our former Rabbi, Dr Charles H. Middleburgh, was the associate editor.

NewSynBessThe services are led by the Rabbi in Hebrew and English, and all are welcome to join in with the reading and singing.

Our wonderful professional choir enables us to pray with sincerity, spirituality and warmth. Our services are quite short and avoid repetition and are conducted with order and decorum – less buzz, more focus!

After the Shabbat morning services we join with our friends in Mosaic Reform to share kiddush together.

Visitors and guests are welcome and will find a friendly, relevant and uplifting service.
