Our Shabbat service starts at 9.00 am. While it is always our aim to respect the dignity and sanctity of shul proceedings, we find that a degree of informality helps to ensure a welcoming atmosphere that puts visitors at their ease. We aspire to a ruach that reaches everyone, be they regular or not-so-regular shul-goers. A concurrent feature of the main service is Bernie Dexter’s Children’s service – an institution much admired by all who have sampled its delights over the years. Follow the link to Uncle Bernie for detailed coverage. We also host a monthly Sephardi minyan which starts at 9:30 am, and takes place in the Gertrude Preston Hall. The organisers want you to know that you don’t have to be a Sephardi to attend and that their kiddush offers burekas as an alternative to fish balls!  Shabbat afternoon services commence about 75 minutes before the end of Shabbat and include a Seuda Shlishit (except in Summer), accompanied by a d’var Torah given by Rabbi Jesner or a visiting Rav or Dayan.


Daily morning and afternoon/evening services are held throughout the year, with Sunday afternoon service starting at the same time as the immediately preceding Friday’s Mincha.

Sephardi Minyan

A monthly Sephardi Minyan is held in Gertrude Preston Hall, at the premises of the Bournemouth Hebrew Congregation. Details of the forthcoming Sephardi Minyanim can be found at The Diary section of the website. Service commences at 9:00 a.m. followed by a Traditional Sephardi Kiddush All Members of the Community are welcome, you do not have to be a Sephardi to attend!

If you would like to sponsor the next kiddush, please
