Liberal Judaism is the dynamic, cutting edge of modern Judaism. It reverences Jewish tradition, seeking to preserve the values of the Judaism of the past while giving them contemporary force. We believe in the equality of each individual, regardless of race, gender or sexuality. We apply this belief in practice, with support for mixed-faith and same-sex relationships. There are lots of volunteering opportunities within our communities: from running social events and friendship clubs to helping members get to their local synagogue or supporting those who have lost a loved one.

The Assembly of Masorti Synagogues
The purpose of the Assembly of Masorti Synagogues is to develop flourishing Masorti communities throughout the UK. We aim for every Masorti community and the movement as a whole to be welcoming and inclusive and to encourage its members on a journey towards greater Jewish involvement through study, prayer and the practice of Gemilut Chasidim [Good Deeds]. Central to this are volunteering opportunities both within and beyond our communities. For details please contact your nearest Masorti synagogue by clicking on the link.
