Although we are a small community we hold services for Shabbat every Friday evening and once a month (usually on the first Saturday morning of each calendar month, but it can vary - see our What's On page). There is a Kiddush provided by the Guild after each of these services.
We also hold a range of services on the various Jewish festivals and a full set of services on the High Holydays.
Please see our Festivals and High Holydays pages for further details.
All of the the above services are conducted by our own highly experienced but self-taught lay readers.
In addition we also hold occasional services on civic occasions and on Holocaust Memorial Day every third year (in rotation with Rochester Cathedral and civic venues).
For an up to date look at what is happening, please visit our What's On page or if you wish to enquire about attending services you can use one of the options on our Contact Us page. Visitors are always welcome to any of our services but it is helpful if you let us know in advance that you you are going to attend.
Friday evening services are held at the Synagogue each week as follows:
18:30 during the winter (change of time from 29/11/19)
19:00 during the summer (BST)
We also hold a monthly Family Service at the Synagogue which is usually on the first Saturday of each calendar month at 10:00. (Note that occasionally this date is not the first Saturday so please check this page or our This Month page). Parents and younger children are welcome to join our children's group in the Centenary Hall or to join the congregation. Older children and teenagers are especially welcome to attend and to participate in the service. There is a Kiddush provided by the Guild after the service.
Coming Shabbat dates
There will be no services in the immediate future due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
On the weeks when there is no Shabbat morning service, we have a talk and discussion about the week’s Torah portion on the Friday evening.
