At SHEMA, we believe Judaism should be authentic, honest and open-minded. Whether you’re looking for a place to pray and learn, the opportunity to give or volunteer, an inspiring rabbi, or just a supportive group of friends, you’ll find a warm welcome here.
We have created a caring community, where Jewish observance and worship are conducted in an inclusive, tolerant and open environment, combining traditional Judaism with a modern understanding of religious thought and practice.
Rabbi Danny Newman is a dynamic and inspiring spiritual leader, and we are proud of the warmth of our services and our educational, cultural and social events. Families sit together in our services, with men and women counted in the minyan and encouraged to be called up to the Torah, to Leyn and to read Haftarah.
Through our services and social activities, our youth and adult study programme, our commitment to community welfare and links with other Masorti Synagogues, we try to reach out to all Jews, whatever their level of observance.
You are welcome to visit one of our services, but advance registration is essential. For more information CONTACT US.
