Based in the heart of South London, we are a welcoming and inclusive centre of Jewish life. We are proud of our diverse community, our progressive values, our quest for learning, and our 90 years of tradition.
Services are held every Shabbat and on Festivals and encompass traditional and modern practices. Hebrew and English are used in the services which use the Liberal Judaism siddur, Siddur Lev Chadash. Services are led by our minister, Rabbi Nathan Godleman and our lay leaders. We hold regular family services, led by Gesher pupils with some adult help.
SLLS launched the Abraham’s Tent Project to convert part of the synagogue building back into use as a flat for a refugee family. It is called the Abraham’s Tent Project because of the Midrash (Jewish commentary) that Abraham’s tent was open on all sides to welcome strangers.
Led by a team of volunteers from within our community, the project was officially launched in February 2017 with an inspiring day of events attended by over 100 people from all faiths and backgrounds. As a result of this very successful start to our fundraising campaign, we have raised over a third of the total needed, and are increasingly confident that we will be able to accommodate a household before the end of the year.
South London Liberal Synagogue aims to be as accessible as possible to disabled people.
While the front entrance has steps, the synagogue has stepfree access through a side entrance. Please let us know if you require stepfree access and we will arrange this. There is stepfree access to the sanctuary via a lift. There is a toilet which is accessible to some wheelchair users, although please be aware that it does not have a grab rail.
We have large print siddurim (prayer books) available. There is a hearing loop in use at all services.
If you have any questions about access, please get in touch and we will do our best to accommodate you.
