We are a thriving, vibrant community with our own beautiful Synagogue premises in the heart of Southport, a charming seaside resort 20 miles north of Liverpool and about 40 miles west of Manchester. Registered Charity No: 227576
Shabbat morning services start at 11 a.m. and usually last for about one and a half hours after which there is a Kiddush and an informal get-together. Services are held in a rather less formal atmosphere and children, no matter how young, are made very welcome, as are all age groups. All services are read in Hebrew and English.
Festivals are advertised in the news letter sent to members and friends of the synagogue ( see ‘News’ above). For shabbat and festivals we use the services of Rabbis, Student Rabbis, and our own Readers. Please note High Holy Days are ticket only services ( for security) - apply via the office if not a synagogue member.
Cheder takes place on Shabbat morning from 10:00 - 12:30, during school term time, for all children from 6 years through to Bar/Bat Mitzvah.
Equality between men and women in the Synagogue and at services is taken for granted and women are called to the Torah and given other honours equally with men. As a constituent Synagogue of the Movement for Reform Judaism, women play their full part with men as members in their own right and are able to be voted onto Executive and Council of the congregation.
