Cheltenham is a traditional synagogue and services follow the Ashkenazi minhag.
Normally, Shabbat services are held throughout the year on Friday evenings, usually at 7.00 pm, followed by a Kiddush, 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.
Significant festivals, holidays and other important events in 2021 are as listed below. Note that the Jewish day begins the evening before and ends after sunset..
With the current COVID-19 pandemic most services are online but not during Shabbat or Festivals.
