Welcome to Kingston Synagogue

Steeped in history, Kingston’s association with Royalty dates back to Anglo-Saxon times when seven kings were crowned here in the 10th century.

You will be assured of a warm welcome at our shul, the focal point and spiritual centre for our vibrant, friendly community of approximately 325 members, affiliated to the United Synagogue.
