Our Shul

Solihull and District Hebrew Congregation is an independent Orthodox Synagogue that services Jews in Solihull, Coventry and surrounding towns and villages. We boast a ‘small’ but ever-growing, friendly and enthusiastic Community. Everyone is welcome to attend our services and especially to participate. The atmosphere is traditional but informal. Whether young or old and whatever your background you will quickly feel at home. We also have a thriving Cheder, Ladies Guild and a busy calendar of social events.

Jews began moving to Solihull in the early 1960’s and the Solihull and District Hebrew Congregation was formally founded in 1963, for a number of years it led a nomadic existence meeting in various community halls until it was able to lease a parcel of land on which to build a Synagogue and Community Centre. This was consecrated by Chief Rabbi Jakobovits in November 1977. In 1984 the community appointed Rabbi Hershel Rader as its first Rabbi, in 1993 when Rabbi Rader moved to London, Rabbi Yehuda Pink was appointed as Rabbi. In 2001 the freehold of the Synagogue site was acquired and the building expanded and transformed to create a Jewish Community Centre in addition to the existing Synagogue.

Although small in numbers the community boasts an extensive array of religious, social and educational activities. We are always delighted to welcome visitors to any of our activities.
