A Jewish Community at the very heart of London

Welcome to Sandys Row Synagogue - Spitalfields. London’s oldest Ashkenazi Synagogue and the last fully functioning Jewish community in what was once the very heart of the Jewish East End.
Our congregation is as diverse as our Spitalfields neighbourhood, with Jews from a wide variety of backgrounds. We wholeheartedly welcome anyone interested in discovering a warm community, spiritual meaning, and a truly vibrant Jewish life. We hold regular services, and offer lunchtime shiurs , a host musical concerts and cultural events, and special holiday celebrations. We hope you’ll explore our community and consider it your own.
We were founded in 1854 by a 50 pioneering Dutch families, and since then our doors have never closed.

Mincah services take place every weekday except Friday with a large number of city workers coming to Sandys Row during their lunch hour. Services take place from 1.15pm – 1.45pm. All welcome, for further information please contact David Parlons who oversees the services. On fast days there can be in excess of one hundred congregants.

“The historic building is still very much a working synagogue and when you walk into the shul you have that wonderful feeling of going back in time and being part of a real community.” (Rose Edmunds, Board Member of Sandys Row)

David Parlons is especially passionate about the tehillim service, which concludes the daily Mincah. Psalms are recited, along with the Hebrew names of people who are ill. “I’ve seen miracles happen for many people.”

Shabbat services are held fortnightly, ministers are Rev M. Gingold and Rabbi Mendy Korer of Habad. Services begin at 9.30am followed by a Kiddush, which gives attendees an opportunity to meet and socialise with others in the community. Everyone old and young will be warmly welcomed.

If you would like to sponsor a Kiddush please contact our administrator.
