Cheltenham is a traditional synagogue and services follow the Ashkenazi minhag.
Shabbat services are held throughout the year on Friday evenings. Saturday morning services are held from time to time.
There are occasional Friday evening services where some English explanation is given to which guests are invited. These often coincide with Inter Faith Week in November.
Significant festivals, holidays and other important events in 2023 are as listed below. Note that the Jewish day begins the evening before and ends after sunset..
