It’s time to Join the United Synagogue

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 flexibility of being able to move between any US community without losing any membership rights or benefits. The US Burial Scheme is open to all members of Central as an optional alternative to any local provision.

For more details call the shul office on 0121 440 4044 or click here to find out more and download our application form.
