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 a mixture of in-person and online via Zoom.

 

Full details of all Sukkat Shalom events and services with times and venues (we don't have our own shul) can be found by following this link to our diary page.

 

Sorry there is a problem with diary page. Will try to update soon.

 

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.

 

To contact us: go to our contact page or phone 0131 777 8024
