Here you'll find all the latest Yeshurun information on service times, activities and news. Detailed monthly and weekly members' newsletters are available by email on request to the Office. We have a number of regular programmes such as:
Shacharit: Normal service times are as follows:
Mincha: Weekday services during winter (from 1st November) are usually at 1.00pm, with many thanks to Robert A. Cohen. On Sundays, Mincha and Maariv services will be held at same time as Mincha on the preceding Shabbat (see Calendar).
Maariv Evenings: During most of the year the service will normally be at 7:30pm, but in the peak weeks of summer, 7:45pm. Until 21st September, the service will be preceded by Mincha.

When it comes to celebrating special occasions, we know you want a venue with a warm atmosphere and endless possibilities for creating a simcha to remember.
At Yeshurun Synagogue we have two halls available, so whether you’re planning a small, family Shabbat lunch or an all-out glitzy party, we have what you’re looking for in a Kosher venue in South Manchester.
We have both meat and dairy kitchens available, which have been used successfully in the past for large events. They are available to any of the licensed Kosher caterers approved by the Manchester Beth Din.
Car parking for around 30 cars is available within the shul grounds, with plenty of additional parking space within a short walking distance for your guests.
Full details of booking and conditions of use are available from our office.
Having recently undergone renovation, especially with the lighting to create a warm and inviting atmosphere, our shul is a wonderful venue for a barmitzvah, batmitzvah or wedding. The Ladies section is situated in a slightly elevated position behind the bimah with the men being seated at either side. This means that all guests have exceptional views of services and ceremonies.
Our reception area
When guests arrive, you want an area where drinks can be served and appetites are whet. Our entrance hall can be easily transformed into a perfect place for you to welcome guests and leads them directly into the main hall. There is also easy access to cloakroom and modern washroom facilities for both men and women.
Our main hall
Big celebrations need a large room that lends itself to being dressed in your own unique way. Some people just want to have some beautiful tablecovers and gorgeous flowers, for others it’ll be about specialised lighting and jaw-dropping room decorations.
The beauty of our main hall is that you can create so many different parties in it. From a large Shabbat lunch to an evening party that will have your guests dining and dancing in style, the room is suitable to make it your own.
Our smaller hall
Sometimes you need a venue that’s just a little bigger than home. For a lunch or dinner with family and friends where you don’t want to restrict the guest list too much, why not use our modern yet intimate Shachter Hall. It can seat up to 70 people and is ideal for when you just need somewhere with a little more space than you can manage yourself.
In July. Yeshurun hosted an informed and captivating review of the current challenges in presenting Israel’s case from Lorna Fitzsimons, Chief Executive of Bicom. In her wide sweeping review of the current situation facing the advocates for Israel, Lorna Fitzsimons pointed out that the real concern of the Methodists’ decision was the alarming implication that Christian Zionism was invalid.
There have been some successes, however, she reported. The International Trades Union Congress recently refused, against expectations, to back a boycott against Israel, and William Hague is very conscious of the Iranian nuclear threat. Ms Fitzsimons believes that it is vital for Bicom and the Jewish community to help define the new coalition’s foreign policy and to support Israel’s friends. She expects that autumn will be a challenging time with threats which are “real, increasing, and becoming critical” and praised the Yeshurun community for its proactive support.
Yesh Kids, Yeshurun Synagogue’s new “fun learning” post school club for ages 6 to 11 held its first Post Pesach Fun Run on Sunday 11th April. Over forty of the Cheadle and Gatley community’s younger members participated in the two mile run from the synagogue to William Scholes Park and back. The photograph shows some of Yeshurun’s younger members after taking part in Sunday’s Fun Run.
The event was organised by Jennie Frieze and on their return the runners were treated to some post run exercises and a Bagel Brunch. £120 was raised to pay for future activity trips out for the club.
Once again, Yeshurunites of all ages took to the country for their annual Matzo Ramble during Chol Hamoed Pesach.
