Services

Our services are warm, welcoming and inclusive and our beautiful synagogue provides a calm and attractive environment in which to pray.

We hold weekly Shabbat evening and morning services and we celebrate all the Festivals with evening and morning services and with other appropriate activities.

In our services you will find a mix Hebrew and English, tradition and innovation, reading, singing, and silence. Our melodies come from a number of traditions, ancient and modern. Men and women participate equally in all aspects.
