Useful Information for New Members

Who can join?

We welcome all Jews whose halachic status is accepted by the Anglo-Jewish Orthodox Rabbinate. Whatever your level of observance, our community will welcome you on an equal basis and without judgement.

Why join Yeshurun?

The ethos of our community is ‘Modern Orthodoxy’ in the full sense of the words.

Tolerance and Equality, Involvement as Jews in the modern world, a strong Zionist outlook, and full participation of women in orthodoxy.

What do you want from your shul membership? Somewhere to pray at Yom Tov, Shabbat or special occasions? Or to be fully part of the daily minyanim learning and social activities? You’re welcome at Yeshurun!

Yeshurun is a community where you can get involved – from children’s activities and education, youth activities for the older teens, local Jewish school and secondary Jewish schools a bus ride away.

A broad range of activities for adult members, religious, social and secular.

Participate in any you wish, there’s a broad scope across the range of interests. Please call us! You are welcome at Yeshurun !
A sense of belonging and a future for your family? We’re here to help!

A chance to be a modern, observant Jew who prays and lives with similarly-minded people? You’re one of our kind!

Where should I live?

The Cheadle & Gatley area is lucky to have a wide range of affordable housing, within walking distance from the Synagogue and North Cheshire Jewish Primary School.

We also have planning permission for an Eruv, covering most of Cheadle and Gatley, including parks and recreation areas.

If you’re new to the area and would like advice about where to live, please do contact us – Do you prefer to live nearer the primary school or close to the shops or to the parks? A bustling road or somewhere quieter? Close to the motorways for driving or the convenience of public transport?

We can offer practical help and advice.

Who else is a member?

From single young people to families, one parent families and those enjoying the best years of their life, Yeshurun has a rich tapestry of members who all share one common attribute – tolerance of others, irrespective of their level of religious practice.

We have over 300 families under the spiritual guidance of our modern-minded and learned Rabbi & Rebbetzen, Greg and Hannah Bank, with a passion for this Community and Israel.
