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: we hold Erev Shabbat services on the second Friday of each month, and Shabbat morning service two weeks later. On other weekends we hold an early evening Kabbalat Shabbat service. We welcome visitors to any services but, if you plan to come, please get in touch to give us your contact details. We use the Liberal Judaism service book (copies are available) and we can help you to follow if you are unfamiliar with our liturgy​.

 

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.
