Welcome to York Liberal Jewish Community

York’s Liberal Jewish Community aims to provide a friendly Jewish home to any residents, students and visitors to the City of York who identify as Jewish

What We Do

We hold the only regular Jewish services in York, at the City’s Friends Meeting House, normally on the second or third Saturday of each month. (Check out our events calendar for further information).

Our services follow the Liberal tradition, with men and women participating on an equal basis and prayers in English and Hebrew. We are currently extremely lucky to be being supported by Student Rabbi Deborah Blausten who not only leads many of our services and events but also leads our adult education course, Judaism 101.

Following the closure of York’s Orthodox synagogue in 1975, we are delighted to be organising the first regular Jewish services in York for nearly forty years. In addition, we hold educational events, play-dates for families and social Friday night suppers.

We are self-run so while anyone and everyone is welcome to attend, those willing to get involved and help with organising and hosting events are particularly welcome. Meet us here http://youtu.be/e_0pjys7pDs Contact us now to volunteer.
