"Remembering with you the rich tradition of Pesach
And wishing you warmth and togetherness,
prosperity and happiness always... Happy Passover!"

Those of you who came to the Purim Party last month will remember Rabbi Daniels, from London, who took the Megilla reading.............., and gave a most interesting introduction to the later history of the Purim Megilla Reading. Rabbi Daniels will be in Bristol again, for Shabbat: 26th April, and he has kindly agreed to take the morning service.

There will be a Kiddush afterwards.

Everyone is invited: so let`s make this a great event.

Welcome to the  Bristol Jewish Community

"Bristol Hebrew Congregation"

The Bristol Hebrew Congregation is highly regarded locally and nationally as a small but very active community. We pride ourselves on being friendly and welcoming and look forward to meeting new members.

Synagogue services are held every Shabbat and Yomtov.

The Bristol Hebrew Congregation’s Women’s Guild organises a regular programme of social events either in the synagogue’s Frank Cohen Hall or in members’ homes. Occasional events are organised jointly with Bristol’s Bristol and West Progressive Jewish Congregation.


The congregation also has its own Chevra Kadisha (burial society) which serves both its own members and unaffiliated Jewish people in the area.


Bristol Hebrew Congregation has a close relationship with  Chabad of Bristol,  Bristol University’s Jewish Society,  JSoc  and with students of Bristol’s two universities. Important to this link is Bristol’s Hillel Centre, The Ark and Dove, and the Western Region Jewish Chaplaincy whose local Board administers the student chaplaincy service in a region stretching from Reading to Plymouth, including South Wales.
