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.

There is a new Social Group which runs from 7 pm to 10.30 pm on a Tuesday evening.   It has now been decided that they open fortnightly at the Southend and District Reform Synagogue in the London Road, opposite Chalkwell Park.  Your first visit is free and it is £3 including refreshments every time after that.  The programmes up to 17th September are listed below:-

11th June - Talk by Pat DePass about converting to Judaism

25th June -  Light-hearted table top quiz

9th July - Request some of your favourite songs

On Sunday, 17th November, we will be celebrating the Annual Mitzvah Day with a cream tea.  Time of start to follow.  Each participant will bring either a tin or packet for the homeless charity we support or some toiletries for the hostel we also support.   More details to follow.

Our Annual Quiz this year will be held on Saturday, 2nd November - Further details to follow. Please note the date has had to be changed due to unforeseen circumstances.

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.
