Rabbi and Rebbetzen Atlas
Welcome to Yeshurun! - Rabbi Chanan and Rebbetzen Nechama Atlas have arrived, along with their 4 children.
Rabbi Atlas is Israeli born with American parents and is from a family of Rabbonim. He comes to us via Birmingham and prior to that David Cardozo Academy Israel and Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Rabbi Atlas is from the growing ‘modern orthodox’ group of Rabbis. He worked for an organisation that is training young Israeli Rabbis for a rabbinic career in the diaspora. He stresses the importance of secular education for his family and for all Jews and the necessity to be involved with the non-Jewish world and not to be isolated from it.

She has a teaching degree from Beit Ya’acov women’s college where she specialised in Child Counselling and TeNaCh & is working towards her Master’s degree. She taught religious studies in Port Elizabeth and worked as an educational counsellor in Israeli schools. She has learned with her father, the well-known and distinguished Rabbi Natan Lopes Cardozo. Rebbetzen Atlas sees herself as partner to her husband’s work. She is particularly focused and involved with learning for women and working with the youth of the community.

“You are such a vibrant Community and we are so proud to be joining you! We can’t wait to meet with you all ! “
Yeshurun Hebrew Congregation, Cheadle, UK
Our community has been established for nearly 50 years, with an enviable reputation for friendliness and a welcoming atmosphere. At the centre of our success has been our strong inclusive approach to the wide spectrum of modern Orthodox belief and a democratic approach to all aspects of how we manage our shul.
We are very proud of our broad range of activities - we're not just a place to pray but a dynamic community where lifelong friendships are made and treasured.
As well as daily prayer service in the modern Orthodox tradition, we have pioneered prayer services for women and created innovative learning activities for the younger members of our community.
We are located in an attractive part of South Manchester (good housing with excellent transport links) and have everything on hand that you might need - from kosher food shops to an award-winning Primary School.
If you are looking for a shul that offers a welcoming and tolerant view on modern Orthodox Judaism then you have come to the right place!
