The United Synagogue (Registered Charity No 242552) is the largest synagogue movement in Europe. Founded in 1870, today it comprises over 60 local communities, together with schools, nurseries and cemeteries, supported by a central office. The Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of Great Britain and the Commonwealth, Chief Rabbi Mirvis, is the United Synagogue’s spiritual head. We have around 40,000 members.
Our vision is of inspiring Jews with enriched lives, passing our heritage on to future generations. Our mission is to engage Jews with mainstream orthodox Jewish living, learning and caring. Our values are authentic, inclusive and modern Torah Judaism.
