The Bristol Hebrew Congregation is highly regarded locally and nationally as a small but very active community. We pride ourselves on being friendly and welcoming and look forward to meeting new members.

We also welcome visitors during the week. If you like to visit us, please book your visit here

Synagogue services are held every Shabbat and Yomtov.

The Bristol Hebrew Congregation’s Women’s Guild organises a regular programme of social events either in the synagogue’s Frank Cohen Hall or in members’ homes. Occasional events are organised jointly with Bristol’s Bristol and West Progressive Jewish Congregation.


The congregation also has its own Chevra Kadisha (burial society) which serves both its own members and unaffiliated Jewish people in the area.


Bristol Hebrew Congregation has a close relationship with Bristol University’s Jewish Society,  JSoc  and with students of Bristol’s two universities. Important to this link is Bristol’s Hillel Centre, The Ark and Dove, and the Western Region Jewish Chaplaincy whose local Board administers the student chaplaincy service in a region stretching from Reading to Plymouth, including South Wales.
