A warm welcome to East London & Essex Liberal Synagogue (ELELS).

We are:

  • A modern, egalitarian, forward looking community.
  • Built on the solid foundations of our two legacy communities.
  • A community built on tradition and heritage- respectful of, and not stuck in the past.
  • A new community of like-minded Jews.
  • A Jewish community for the 21st Century.

A browse of our website, (which is currently under development-Jan 2020) provides a flavour of who we are and what we offer. 

You can find information about all our Religious Services including the different types of Shabbat Services held at ELELS; our Forthcoming Shabbat services; Festival celebrations and Family & Life Events 

ELELS also offers a range of Educational activities for all age groups – including EL² , our Cheder for those aged between four and sixteen; activities for Tots and preschoolers; Adult Education including Access to Judaism (conversion)classes, Hebrew reading, Modern Hebrew Conversation (Ulpan), Torah study services , a range of speakers and much much more.

On the Events page we also provide information about various wider local community activities, including those provided by Liberal Judaism and progressive religious or communal groups.
