On the 29th March 2014/28th Adar II 5774 we were delighted to host a celebratory service and buffet in the presence of Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis plus a host of local dignitaries including Dayanim, Rabbonim, other faiths, local organisations including the Police and over 200 members of our congregation and their friends.  The Chief Rabbi gave an address after a welcome speech by the Chairman and Rabbi Singer.  The Chief Rabbi also unveiled a plaque in the reception area to commemorate his visit.

Chazan and Choir

Our Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur services each New Year year are enhanced by a small choir led by Chazan Modi Spitzer.  You can listen to a sample of the Yom Tov tunes we used  by clicking on the links  below or right clicking to download to your own computer.   Clicking on a link should open a new window on your computer and launch you own music player.

Our Shul

Bury Hebrew Congregation is an Orthodox synagogue (Shul)  serving the Jewish community in the Sunnybank, Unsworth and Hollins area of North Manchester.  The Shul building was officially opened by the then Chief Rabbi Jacobovitz, in November 1976, and is the focal point of a community of over 350 families, providing a centre for the daily Minyan, functions, simchas, clubs, education.

The Shul is located on the corner of the A56 Manchester Road and Sunnybank Road and has extensive on-site car parking. Click here for a location map.

Visitors to the Shul often comment on its friendly and welcoming atmosphere.  If you are visiting from out of town, why not come to one of the Shabbos or weekday services?

The Schleifer Hall is available for functions up to 200 people and can be catered from our own kitchen. Book your next simcha with us. It is popular for special Shabbat Kiddushim, Simchas Torah, Purim and Chanukah parties as well as Ladies Guild functions and other events. It is also used extensively by the various youth and social groups which meet regularly in the Shul.
