The Jewish Community of Berkshire (JCOB) is a lively group of people of all ages, who get together on Friday nights, Shabbat morning and Festivals.

Some people think that there is not much Jewish life in Berkshire for younger people, but we know that’s not true. Jewish life is what we make of it – and we make it great fun, and very sociable.

What’s more, age is largely in your head! Our regular events are very popular with the younger members of the Jewish community in Berkshire, and we are the only Orthodox community in the County with a living Cheder and ongoing Jewish education.

We are happy to see you wherever you are Jewishly, and guarantee a warm welcome to any of our activities.

Our Rabbi, Zvi Solomons and his Rebbetzin Shira are the only Orthodox Rabbinic couple in Berkshire, and run our Cheder and services from their home in central West Reading.

Please take a tour round our site and see what we can offer you as a Jewish community in the area – we think you’ll like being part of our extended family.

Thanks to everyone who came to our first Simchat Torah celebrations at JCoB. We have been in existence now for three years and this marks our move to a new viability.

It was lovely to see you and to be able to share our joy and celebration with you. Mazal Tov to Paul Grabinar and Laurence Lyons on being our chatanim. It was a real joy.

Shavua tov.

JCoB Shul invites familes, uni students, and the whole community to a late afternoon pre-Simchat Torah party with Rebbetzin Shira's famous vegetarian curries and some practice hakafot for our cheder kids. Followed by a service at 6pm with hakkafot and dancing. Kiddush to follow with a second chance at dinner and a lechayim.

We will also hold a service in the morning where we will honour our chatanim.

  1. Hi,

    We do synagogue services based in Reading and are always happy to meet new people. We often meet beginners and the services are warm and welcoming.

    Kind regards,
    Rabbi Zvi
