Latest United Synagogue updates

It is time to become a member

Central shul has been a full constituent member of the United Synagogue since January 2017.

Now is a great time to join us. The United Synagogue is the largest Orthodox Synagogal movement in Europe, made up of over 60 communities. Joining Birmingham Central United Synagogue means you get all the benefits of a large shul while enjoying the close knit community of a provincial synagogue. The US Burial Scheme is open to all members of Central as an optional alternative to any local provision. Members of other US shuls have the flexibility of being able to move to our community without losing any membership rights or benefits.

For more details call the shul office or click here to find out more.
