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.
Students’ pastoral needs are catered for by the Midlands Regional Chaplaincy and there is also a branch of Aish HaTorah and Chabad on Campus in Birmingham.
We have had many requests from students who would like to associate themselves with the Shul in a more formal way.
In return for a synagogue membership fee of £60 per academic year, students can associate themselves with the congregation, be kept up to date with all mailings, and will be invited to any formal meetings (although not entitled to a vote, which is limited to full members only).
