Students play an active role in our Shul life and are an integral part of our community.

Central Shul is just a short walk away from Hillel House and the main student accommodation in Selly Oak. Students are encouraged to take part in all Shul events, and regular hospitality is provided by host families for Shabbat and Yom Tov meals.

For a reduced synagogue membership fee per academic year, students can associate themselves with the congregation, be kept up to date with all mailings, and will be invited to all educational and social events as well as formal meetings.

Contact the office if you would like to know more.
