Publications at the Central Synagogue

The Central Synagogue is proud to present several publications, including an annual magazine and various books.

Central Synagogue Magazine 2016

Our annual magazine has gone from strength to strength with a colourful summary of events from the past year, wide-ranging articles from our members and important future dates for the diary. Our Rosh Hashanah 5777 edition is out now!

The magazine is a great way to celebrate special occasions. For example, in 2008, we marked the 50th anniversary of the re-dedication of the Shul after the original building was destroyed in 1941. We issued a celebratory brochure outlining major events in the community’s history since its beginnings.

If you would like a copy of the magazine or brochure, please contact the office or visit our low resolution online version by accessing the links below.
