Welcome to Sukkat Shalom, the Edinburgh Liberal Jewish Community

 


Our aim: to provide services and activities which embody our values, strengthen our Liberal Jewish identity and cater for the wide diversity of our members’ faith, practice and support needs.

 

Our services: Shabbat Evening Services, Shabbat Morning Services & Havdalah are all now online via Zoom.

 

Update - Some Services are now being held physically and/or

 

in a hybrid form using Zoom.

 

Please check your weekly emails for information about High Holy Days Services.

 

We welcome visitors to any services, but please get in touch to get access details. We use the Liberal Judaism service book, Siddur Lev Chadash. The text will be shared online.
