We will follow the advice from the UK government and the Liberal Judaism movement as to when it will be safe to return to physically congregating together. Although many restrictions are currently easing, as singing and congregating closely will still not be allowed for some time, we are only beginning to contemplate in situ services. We will announce revised intentions when that becomes appropriate, with accompanying scheduling details...
In the meantime, we have had many successful monthly Zoomed services, generally on Friday evenings, apart from some festivals and special occasions. At this point, these will only be available to members, associates and specifically invited guests. Please email us or call our dedicated number if you are interested in the possbility of joining us online until we reconvene in physical space when it becomes possible.
Phone/text: 07497 401280 or email: email@example.com
You may wish to go to the Liberal Judaism website in order to view streamed services from other communities.
Our next Zoomed Service will be
Erev Shabbat (Balak)
25 June 2021
Larry Navon and TBD
will lead the service
Until we fully pass through the pandemic (and beyond as well):
May the Eternal One bless you and watch over you,
shining the Divine Countenance upon you while comforting you,
and lifting your spirit and granting you Health and Peace.

Normally, in non-restricted times, our services are usually held
at the Christ the King (CTK) Catholic Church Parish Room,
3 Princes Road (on the Langney roundabout),
Eastbourne, East Sussex BN23 6HS
and occasionally at
Alice Croft House (ACH), Cornfield Lane, Eastbourne, BN21 4NE.
Services are currently being led primarilyby our talented lay leaders.
Our former part-time Rabbi Roberta Harris-Eckstein has also contributed in this way,
and we expect some other guest leaders in 2021.
We use the Liberal Judaism prayer book "Siddur Lev Chadash" which is in English and Hebrew and we have transliterations available for those who wish to follow the Hebrew parts of the service.
Visitors - we ask that all visitors to our services respect our Liberal Jewish faith, traditions and practices. Please do not bring in, use or distribute any non-Jewish texts or attempt to influence our members in any way incompatible with Liberal Judaism.
ELJC reserves the right to ask anyone behaving in an inappropriate way to leave.
The hall at CTK is fully disabled-accessible with disabled toilet facilities and a free car park with step-free access.
