Voicemail: 07971 853 102

Our Erev Shabbat (Friday evening) services begin at 8pm except on the last Friday of each month when we start at 6.45pm, usually followed by a Shabbat meal.

Shabbat morning (Saturday) services begin at 10.30am.
The first shabbat of each month is our Family Service beginning at 11am, with a service designed to be child friendly and welcoming to all generations.

School & Group Visits
Visits are hosted by a small team of volunteers. We give a basic talk, geared to the ages of our visitors, about Judaism, the Synagogue and what goes on there, including showing the Torah scrolls, demonstrating the use of ritual objects and any topics specifically requested by the organisation. This takes about one hour, and we encourage questions.

There is no charge for visits, but we welcome donations towards the cost of heating and lighting, as the synagogue has to be opened specially for visits.

Ruth Heyman has highlighted a great project you may like to be involved with.

Pupils at the Lakes School in Windermere are appealing for any unwanted buttons. “In July this year Arek Hersh visited the Lakes School at Troutbeck Bridge near Windermere. This school was built on the former site of the Calgarth Estate where Arek and 299 other child Holocaust Survivors stayed in 1945.

After his visit, Laura Oram a History teacher at the school, suggested the students should design a Holocaust Memorial. In the discussion the students were asked to decide what small item they could collect to help people understand the enormous tragedy of the Holocaust. “Our Year 10 Student ‘B’ came up with the idea of collecting buttons. She perceptively noted that buttons are all different and individual, just like the people who were killed in such awful circumstances.

As a result of this discussion, the project “B’s Buttons” was born and it was decided to collect 1.5 million buttons to reflect the number of children murdered in the Holocaust.

We are writing to ask if you can contribute any buttons to their project and to share this email with others. They would like to make this a global project and have “representation in the final display from all over the globe.

If you can help, could you please either contact Laura at or send any buttons to her at The Lakes School, Windermere, Cumbria, LA23 1HW.”
