Our Building

Around 1745 regular services were held in people's homes in Plymouth, then in rented rooms. We were granted our lease in 1762 when our Synagogue was established.

Our Services

Plymouth Hebrew Congregation regularly holds services for Shabbat: every Friday evening at 6 pm and every Saturday morning at 10am. For other services see events calendar.

Synagogue Visits

We would welcome you or your School to see our Synagogue, However for Adults it's a different number to Schools. If you would like to book a visit to our Synagogue. See below.

Visiting Officiants

We will publish the information about visiting Ministers when they are coming. If possible we try to combine their visit with an event ie a Shabbaton.


A Cheder class is held when a festival is due if there is a demand for it. We are organising Hebrew classes, if there is the demand for them. Contact Anna for more details on 077094894 between 11am and 8pm
