HARROGATE HEBREW CONGREGATION serves a vibrant Jewish community in and around the beautiful North Yorkshire spa town of Harrogate. It is easy to find, nestling just opposite the well-known Betty's tea shop. Our Orthodox, relaxed community remains proudly independent. Known as The Welcoming Shul, it has built its reputation on its traditional ease of worship, independence within the Orthodox community and on friendship, decorum and respect for all.
We have many 'country' members, who keep holiday homes in the region. We also have the pleasure of welcoming out-of-towners and other visitors to our regular Saturday services and events. With two world class concert halls and a renowned live theatre, plus kosher shops just 20 minutes away, our country idyll offers everything you need. Do come visit our beautiful shul building, located just a few moments walk from the handsome, bustling town centre.
