Welcome to Westminster Synagogue

Westminster Synagogue is a warm and welcoming independent community, which allows its members to practise Judaism in their own way without criticism or judgment.  Our members are culturally diverse and come from many countries.  Whilst they may have come from a variety of Jewish backgrounds, in our Synagogue they enjoy a Jewish life that combines traditional roots and a progressive approach. 

A key feature of Westminster Synagogue is its founding principles. Their clarity and passion guided the Synagogue’s rabbis – Harold Reinhart, Albert Friedlander and Thomas Salamon – throughout their ministries and serve to inspire Rabbi Benji Stanley in his spiritual leadership of the community.

We invite you to explore our site, learn more about our community and its educational and cultural programmes, and to visit us at our beautiful home in Knightsbridge in the heart of London. If you'd like to meet with one of our Rabbis, please click here.


 

Westminster Synagogue during COVID-19

During these unprecedented times when we can’t meet physically, there are still many ways to get involved and to make Shabbat and Festivals meaningful. We are continuing to offer Shabbat Services and educational classes over Zoom. Below you will find more information on this and a few more page to help you stay connected during COVID-19.

Shabbat In Lockdown – all you need to know about our virtual services and
Shabbat resources.
Lockdown Learning – All of our regular weekly classes have moved online and we’ve added a weekly Adult learning class on Mondays.
