Come Visit for Yom Kippur & Succoth!

Welcome to Beit Aharon!

We are so excited to have you with us. Beit Aharon is a family-friendly space for prayer and contemplation, song and personal growth. We act on our belief that every Jew is welcome to be included in our community and we come in all shapes and sizes!

This year we have a gorgeous and in depth children’s program, designed with our friends at UJEB so that our younger members find Shule interactive, engaging, fun and full of fond memories.

All small guests, visitors, and members are encouraged to try it out and tell us what their favourite things are so that we can give them more of what they love.

For our congregation, we aim for those same things we just told you about for our children… fond memories, interacting and engagement  – as well as serious contemplation about bettering ourselves and the world around us. For this we are delighted to announce that this year we are having an amazing wonderful chazan come lead our service, along with our regularly brilliant team.

So whether you come as a lone warrior, bring a gaggle of children, or are cajouling your partner… we hope that everyone comes away having had a wonderful Shule experience.

If you are a fly by the seat of your pants sort, not sure of your plans, you’re welcome to make a last minute decision and come by. The more the merrier.

If you would prefer to have a seat guaranteed – for you, members of your family and friends… just click the link and we can give you peace of mind and you can sleep well knowing that it is all organised.
