Welcome to Etz Chaim, the Thanet and District Reform Synagogue

Our Synagogue is situated in Ramsgate, serving the Kent coastal towns of Margate, Ramsgate, Cliftonville, Broadstairs as well as the wider Jewish community throughout Thanet, Canterbury and Eastern Kent stretching from Faversham to Folkestone and beyond. We are a constituent member of the Movement for Reform Judaism (MRJ), a national movement with synagogues throughout the UK.

We hold regular services and events to meet the spiritual, social and educational needs of our members and their families. Our services are mixed in Hebrew and English, using the latest MRJ Prayer Books, and we are very fortunate to have use of a Sefer Torah from the Czech town of Klatovy, on loan from the Memorial Scrolls Trust. We are an inclusive community, and welcome anyone on a Jewish journey of any sort. All our services are followed by kiddush and all present are invited to join.

We welcome visitors so, if you are in the area or you would like to learn more about our community please do contact us on 01843 851164 or warden@tdrs.org.uk with the dates you will be visiting and some information about yourself.

We look forward to seeing you!

We hope that you enjoy looking around our site,
