Neve Shalom

Our community name, Neve Shalom, means oasis of peace and is a tribute to the village near Jerusalem known as Neve Shalom/Wahat al Salam in which Jewish and Palestinian-Arab citizens of Israel live together to create harmony and diversity. The life of that village is a constant source of inspiration and a beacon of hope for peace.

Our Synagogue

Leicester Progressive Jewish Community is an affiliate of Liberal Judaism and we value the continuity of our Jewish heritage. We also reinterpret Jewish traditions to keep pace with our modern society whilst we believe in preserving all that is good in tradition.

Liberal Judaism values truth above tradition, sincerity above conformity, and all human needs above legal technicalities. It promotes pluralism and engages in dialogue with other streams of Judaism, other religions, cultures and philosophies.

As a consequence our religious practice is a blend of both traditional and modern interpretation of texts. Our community supports gender equality in the participation of services and children are encouraged to be fully involved.

We actively participate in the multi faith life in Leicester. Our president represents the community on Leicester Council of Faiths. Our social action officer is our representative on the Leicester Faith Support Group for Asylum Seekers and Refugees.
