Our community is warm, friendly and traditional. The services are user-friendly, making it enjoyable and meaningful for both the seasoned and the unversed. Prayers are said in Hebrew and follow traditional customs interspersed with modern Jewish tunes and English readings. Song, commentary and the use of English-Hebrew prayer books, enable those of all levels to become active participants in the services.
Sandton Central Shul will host all the festival services for locals, business-people working in the area and many visitors to South Africa’s financial hub. The centre is wheelchair accessible and we offer children’s programs during the main services. According to Tradition, at the New Year the Doors of Heaven are open; God accepts all prayers, from anyone.
