Liberal Judaism has 40 communities, and three additional developing/affiliated congregations, covering all parts of England, as well as in Scotland, the Republic of Ireland, Holland and Denmark.

Liberal Judaism’s communities are vibrant, diverse and democratic, offering a meaningful and spiritual Jewish experience in the 21st Century. Above all else, they are welcoming and inclusive.

You can find your nearest community by entering your postcode or address into the searchable map.

For details of lifecycle events – including baby naming, bar/bat-mitzvah, wedding and funeral ceremonies – please see our lifecycle page.

Like every endeavour, there is a balance between what one gives and what one receives. By joining a Liberal community, you are essentially saying that you subscribe to the values of Liberal Judaism and wish the institution of the synagogue well.
It is then a personal matter, what you offer and what you take from the community. This may include receiving inspiration, moving lifecycle events, pastoral support and education – or the giving of your time, skills and resources in so many different ways.
You can use this website to find out more about the Liberal Judaism communities in your area. We then suggest you contact them directly to find out more, meet their rabbi and lay leadership and attend a service.

Liberal Judaism understands that people fall in love, but in so doing do not wish to abandon their Judaism. Moreover, many Liberal synagogues have schemes which enable non-Jewish partners to participate to the extent to which they feel comfortable.
Liberal Judaism offers burial or cremation to its members. Fifteen communities in the Greater London area participate in the Liberal Judaism funeral and burial scheme which means that, on death, a person may be cremated or buried at the Edgwarebury or Cheshunt cemeteries without charge.
