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.

Shabbat 28th September – There would normally be a Shabbat morning service at the Western Community Centre on this date. However, Erev Rosh Hashanah falls on the following day and it may be that members would prefer to hold that service on this weekend. It would be useful if people could let Marguerite know their preferences and we will arrange a service for the preferred date.
Monday 30th September – Rosh Hashanah Service at either 0xford or Maidenhead to be confirmed.
