Bedfordshire Progressive Synagogue

Are you Jewish or do you have Jewish parents or grandparents? Perhaps you were brought up in a Jewish environment and would like to renew your acquaintance with Judaism. If you're new to the area, we are a small and friendly Liberal community with a traditional approach to services. Everybody is made welcome and we hold services both in Luton and Bedford.

As a community within the Liberal Judaism movement we accept the basic and essential beliefs of the Jewish faith and its practices as revealed in the Bible and Talmud, whilst modifying those that seem purely the products of a past era and that have been re-evaluated in accordance with modern research and thought.

We also acknowledge the right of the individual to a certain freedom commensurate with his or her own conscience in today's world. We regard this as in the tradition of the original visionary inspiration of Judaism, and necessary for its present day vitality. Immediately noticeable is that men and women worship together, that women participate as equals, and that parts of the services are read in English
