Services

Swindon Jewish Community is affiliated to the Movement for Reform Judaism and services are run by members of the community using the MRJ prayer book.  We do not have a rabbi but do receive occasional visits from visiting and student rabbis.

Services are run in a variety of venues including members’ homes,  with a regular Saturday morning service held in a local community hall. Visits are also arranged to services held by neighbouring communities.

For the High Holy Days, we join the Maidenhead community service led by Rabbi Jonathan Romain MBE.
