Services

 

SERVICES HELD ON Saturdays (Shabbos) usually start at 10am and a regular service finishes at 12.30pm latest. Harrogate Hebrew Congregation benefits from a roster of visiting officiants who bring us a varied service, complemented by a knowledgeable lay leadership.

The synagogue has bespoke and newly refurbished accommodation for visiting ministers and their families.

Simchas, family celebrations, and anniversaries are frequent and, of course, key events including the High Holy Days are celebrated.

The synagogue was rebuilt 45 years ago and with a modern yet traditional ambiance, with beautiful stained glass windows and bright ornamentation. Those who wish can expect to be offered the honour of a call-up during a service (aliyah). We are always happy for visitors to perform a Haftorah and this can be arranged in advance with our Vice- President Bernard Cohen.

For more information, contact The Secretary on 01423 871713 or the Senior Warden on 01423 886713 The synagogue calendar includes details of all services, festivals, High Holy Days and special events.

 

EVERY SHABBOS we have an excellent Kiddush  provided by our Ladies, which we all attend and swap the the latest news (rather than during the service!)  We also have regular enhanced kiddushim for a range of wonderful celebrations from birthdays to anniversaries, baby blessings and more..

Holocaust Service Shabbos 30 Jan 2016 – the annual memorial service in Harrogate, organised by the Harrogate Hebrew Congregation was attended this year by The Mayor & Mayoress, The High Sheriff, MP and Deputy Lieutenant, Rev Brian Hunt.

Jewish survivor Hanneke Dye told her compelling story – an amazing experience of being saved as a baby in Nazi occupied Holland, and being looked after by some very brave people.  This event opened out the community both to a wider Jewish audience and also welcomed non-Jewish visitors to the synagogue service.
