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: Erev Shabbat and Shabbat Morning Services are all now online via Zoom.


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.
