• Our condolences to the Royal Family

    His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh

    Together with the whole United Kingdom, we were saddened to hear of the passing of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh For over seven decades the Prince stood, always two steps behind, but always strong and firm, constantly supporting Her Majesty The Queen. His was a life of public devotion and personal sacrifice for this country. We have lost a prince, they have lost their husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. May His Dear Soul Rest In Peace.

The first Orthodox Synagogue in South Manchester, founded in 1872, we are now situated in the leafy village of Bowdon, close to Altrincham, Hale Village and Manchester Airport.

After a long and successful history in the Chorlton-on-Medlock and Fallowfield districts of Manchester, the congregation moved in 2002 to state-of-the-art new premises in Bowdon.

We have the unique distinction of being the only Synagogue in the United Kingdom to have been opened by royalty, with an official visit by HRH Prince of Wales.
