Bristol Jewish Congregation is an independent autonomous Synagogue .    

We believe Judaism should be authentic, honest and open-minded. If you just moved to Bristol or have never been involved in synagogue and have any Jewish connection

you are welcome too. 

We are located at "the River" and we have great connection with this  Christian Community.

The Community helped us with  space for our Synagogue and we are always grateful for that.

 Some people think that because of our connection with Christian Israeli orientated Community we are part of Messianic Judaism. We are not Messianic Synagogue or any part of that movement. We represent  traditional Judaism in modern world.

Whether you're looking for a place to pray and learn, the opportunity to give or volunteer, or just supportive group of friends, you'll find a warm welcome at  Bristol Jewish Congregation Synagogue at "the River".

We hold services every Shabbat  and most festivals. Bristol Jewish Congregation is not affiliated to any of the movements and we hold a variety of service styles. Some services, are conducted mostly in English, others may be more traditional in style where Hebrew is the main language. We try to make all services accessible to everyone regardless of previous preferences. Visiting rabbis and service leaders are welcomed from a variety of denominations.

If you are involved in teaching or lecturing about different faiths and believes and you would like more information about Judaism as a faith and a way of life or would like to arrange visit to your school or organisation,
