York Liberal Jewish Community

Your Liberal Jewish Community Mitzvah Day

York’s Liberal Jewish community is a new venture founded by a number of York Jewish residents who recognised a demand for more Jewish activities in the City. It was established in the summer of 2014.

Anyone and everyone is welcome to attend our services and in particular families with mixed faith backgrounds interested in exploring their Judaism.
Our services are short, child-friendly and largely in English.
Services are self-run, those willing to get involved and help with organising and hosting events are particularly welcome.

Services: Usually second Saturday of each month

Ritual: Liberal
