Cultural Activities

Culture has always been a really important aspect of life at The Wimbledon Synagogue and we aim to accommodate all interests and passions

We have regular concerts, talks, quizzes and debates that generate exciting discussions and are also enjoyable social occasions.

There is a very active Adult Education group which puts on a wide array of activities, including cultural outings and foreign tours and it is ever-growing.

Music is a big part of Wimbledon Synagogue’s life with regular concerts, some given by well-known visiting musicians. We have had talent shows for our younger and older highly gifted congregants and have our own youth and adult choirs

We have produced two great Musical successes in the past few years; the Musical ‘Joseph’ and, the recently staged ‘Guys and Dolls’, under the direction of our previous Synagogue Music Director, Nicole Allison.

The Wimbledon Music Festival uses the Synagogue as one of its venues every autumn. This Festival is growing from strength to strength and hosts an amazing line-up of internationally renowned performers, playing everything from Classical music to Jazz.

Our choir sings at some, not all, Shabbat Services, often for Bar Mitzvahs and Bat Mitzvahs but they do not confine themselves to services.  They have put on a number of ‘secular’ concerts as well over the years. They meet on alternate Thursday evenings and new members are always welcome. If you are interested please contact the office on on office@wimshul.org.
