HARROGATE HEBREW CONGREGATION serves a vibrant Jewish community in and around the beautiful North Yorkshire spa town of Harrogate. It is easy to find, nestling just opposite the well-known Betty's tea shop. Our Orthodox, relaxed community remains proudly independent. Known as The Welcoming Shul, it has built its reputation on its traditional ease of worship, independence within the Orthodox community and on friendship, decorum and respect for all.
We have many 'country' members, who keep holiday homes in the region. We also have the pleasure of welcoming out-of-towners and other visitors to our regular Saturday services and events. With two world class concert halls and a renowned live theatre, plus kosher shops just 20 minutes away, our country idyll offers everything you need. Do come visit our beautiful shul building, located just a few moments walk from the handsome, bustling town centre.

A big thank you to all concerned for the oustanding services over Rosh Hashonah - I have never heard so much praise from our congregants - very well done.
Chief Rabbi Mirvis is visiting us on Sunday 4th December. He is programmed to arrive at 5-30 pm and leave at 7pm. He is visiting Leeds beforehand and will be leaving us to attend a dinner in Leeds. We aim to give him a very warm welcome and hope he will meet as many of our community as possible. Upon his return to London, we hope he will have resolved to be present at our Centenary in April 2018!
The Chief Rabbi has intimated that he would like to speak and answer questions. Official invitations will be sent out well prior to the event. Entry will be by TICKET ONLY and there will be no charge. The Mayor has accepted an invitation and we intend inviting a few more dignitaries. We shall also be inviting all our visiting Officiants.
