Hospitality | Mikvah | Tours & School Visits | Local Accommodation


The community at Birmingham Central Synagogue prides itself on providing warmth and hospitality for its many visitors.

Families regularly host students at their houses for Shabbat meals, encouraging them to interact with the community and providing a “home-from-home”.

If you are away from home and travelling on business, do not spend Shabbat alone in your hotel room, but come and join us and experience Birmingham’s renowned hospitality.

If you plan to visit Birmingham, hospitality within the community can be easily arranged for Shabbat and Yom Tov meals, and if required during the week.

Please don’t hesitate to contact the shul office.



The Birmingham mikvah is located on-site and is open to the whole community and visitors.

Ladies, please call the Mikvah Attendant on 07805367672 to make an appointment, at least 48 hours in advance.

Gentlemen, the use of the mikvah is currently restricted due to Covid-19 regulations. We will update you when this has changed.

Donations towards the cost of running the mikvah at Birmingham Central United Synagogue can be made online or left at the mikvah after a visit.

If you wish to use the mikvah for keilim, please contact the shul office.


Tours & School visits

Many children enjoy the regular school visits hosted by Birmingham Central Synagogue.

If you would like to organise a school visit we would be delighted to arrange an explanatory tour.

We are hopeful that tours will be able to restart in September.

We ask for a voluntary donation of £2.00 per person to help defray our operational costs.

For all those interested in seeing around the synagogue and finding out about Judaism we would be happy to show you around.

Please note that due to security considerations, we are only able to allow entry to visitors by prior arrangement.

For schools and colleges, to request a visit the first step is to contact our visits co-ordinator, Sandra, who will then discuss detailed arrangements with you and confirm details of the visit.

Please submit any requests for information on school visits via the “get in touch” button below.


Local accommodation

Birmingham Central Synagogue is situated close to the heart of Birmingham, around a 20 to 30 minute walk from the majority of the city centre hotels and Broad Street.

The closest hotels are the Ibis Hotel or Pentahotel Birmingham both about a mile away, and you then have a choice of the Hyatt and Radisson in the city centre or the Marriott in Edgbaston.
