Welcome to Gloucestershire Liberal Jewish Community (GLJC), a vibrant and inclusive Jewish community, serving the whole county.
The community began in 2008 and now has approximately 70 members of all ages, including many young families.
We are open to all Jews and friends of Judaism, and have a diverse calendar of services and events which include shabbat services, festival celebrations, and cultural and social gatherings. This is intermingled with other important life events (from birth, through cheder, bar/bat mitzvah, marriage, to death & bereavement).
Learning opportunities include cheder for the children and adult and family learning gatherings, social and cultural gatherings, and programmes for Bar/Bat Mitzvah and conversion.
We meet in various locations in Gloucestershire including Cheltenham, Gloucester, Southam, Prestbury, Woodmancote, and Bishops Cleeve. For more information about forthcoming events please contact us or see our events page.
