Services at the Central Synagogue


Here at the Central Synagogue we hold regular weekday and Shabbat services, as well as a range of social events throughout the year. We’re always happy to see new faces in our community, so do consider joining us. As a new visitor, you’ll be greeted by someone from our friendly welcoming committee who will show you in to Shul and help find you somewhere to sit. Non members are required to pre book for services. Please contact the office to do this.

Daily service times can be found on our timetable. More details about these and about times for Shabbat can be found in our regular newsletter. Or call the office for details on taking part in our services and to arrange security in advance of your visit. You can also read more about the format of our Shabbat services by downloading this information sheet.

Children’s services at the Central Synagogue

At the Central Synagogue, we are keen to build up a a strong young community again. To help achieve this, we have introduced a new Children’s Service format so that children of all ages may be catered for.


Why not come to the Children’s Service?

We now have a dedicated toddlers’ service crafted to take the group through a song-based, interactive experience of Shabbat. Older children can spend time discussing a specific theme of the week, or the weekly parasha, with integrated games and puzzles relevant to the topic.

The activities have all been designed to encourage children to feel enthusiastic about coming to Shul on a more frequent basis, to meet other children from the community, and to make friends.

Our services are led by Raquel and Yoav, and the involvement of the children at the Synagogue play a huge part in them.

We would love to extend our Shabbat morning services into other activities such as making doughnuts and latkes at Chanukah time, or Hamentashen for Purim, not to mention taking to the stage again with our famed performances (such as ‘Moses’ and ‘Purim the musical’) which always prove popular.

Come along and join us, we’d love to see you.
