Leicester Hebrew Congregation


Leicester remains typical of many of the provincial communities of Great Britain. Its demography has changed greatly, while its membership reflects much more than ever before the ways in which Anglo-Jewry has been changing. An appreciable number of its members are connected with the University, while many of the children of the community go out of town to University and are thus attracted away. But it still retains a solid core, and the centre of its activities remains the synagogue.
Leicester has its own Mikvah.
For Mikvah contact Rivkie Pink, giving 48 hours notice.

Leicester Jewish Community Care is a welfare organisation which provides small amounts of financial assistance, counselling, advice, visits to the housebound and Yomtov provisions.

  1. Hi,
    I am sure our therapeutic school visited your Sinagogue a few years agao. I was hoping for another visit as the boys are learning all about the festival of Sukkot and Moses. Please could I request a visit for 14 boys aged between 8yrs and 12 years.

    If this is possible, I was considering Wednesday 30th September if that is okay. We would come in the morning and not take up too much of your time. I will wait in anticipation for your reply.

    Kindest Regards
