Southend and District Reform Synagogue extended a warm welcome to visitors at its Open Weekend from 2 – 4 June.
A varied programme of events included explanatory, family-friendly Shabbat services, Hebrew for adults, and the dedication of a new Sefer Torah.
Mouthwatering refreshments were provided by the Synagogue’s Guild.
Synagogue member, Mike Royston, said: “It was a real pleasure for our Rabbi Warren Elf and congregation to welcome visitors from the Jewish and wider community, some of whom had not previously visited our synagogue or experienced a Reform Jewish service. Visitors said how much they had enjoyed their visit and found it very interesting.
Visitors are welcome throughout the year. For further details of the Synagogue and times of services call 01702 766113 or visit the Synagogue’s website.
