Don't forget about the baskets near the front door.  They are for our donations of food and toiletries that go to HARP, the local charity that helps the homeless.  Please remember to drop some item of food or toiletries into the basket next time you come to the Synagogue.  Every little bit helps.

Due to the Coronavirus and the problems at the moment, Rabbi Elf will be leading services on Friday evenings and Shabbat mornings until further notice.  The services will be on Zoom and information is being sent out to provide the ID number and Passcode to enter each time.

 

Keep well everyone.

 

Due to the new General Data Protection regulations magazines will no longer be available on the website If you would like a magazine mailed to you, please e-mail your request quoting your full name and address.

As most people know, the parking restrictions in the stretch of the London Road, where SDRS is, have stopped anyone parking between 8.30  am to 9.30 am and 4.30pm to 6.00 pm.  These restrictions have now been stopped and you can park along that stretch of road at any time during the day.  However, please note, that this has unfortunately not made parking easier as residents and other members of the public are now parking as they no longer have to move their cars when the restrictions used to come in.

Due to the current situation, the Tuesday Club is not opening at the moment.

The Communal Seder Night for 2020 was held online on Thursday, 9th April online.  It was led by Rabbi Elf and his wife Simone on Zoom.  It was a great evening with over 30 people taking part, all from their own homes.

We will overcome!

Welcome

Welcome to the website of Southend and District Reform Synagogue which is a Constituent of the Movement for Reform Judaism (MRJ and their link) and is based at 851 London Road, Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex SS0 9SZ.

The Synagogue was founded as Southend Liberal Synagogue in Leigh on Sea in October 1946 and moved to London Road, Westcliff-on-Sea in 1961, renamed as Southend Progressive Synagogue. In March 1972 we changed our name to Southend and District Reform Synagogue and joined the Reform Movement.

Shabbat Morning Services are held weekly at 10.30 a.m and Friday Night Services at 7.30 pm on alternate weeks (see ‘Services’ for dates).

The Synagogue has a hearing loop, disabled access and facilities, and a baby changing facility.
