Eastbourne Liberal Jewish Community is affiliated to Liberal Judaism, one of the UK's Progressive Jewish movements. Our members come from the town of Eastbourne and the wider East Sussex area, including Hastings/St Leonards, Bexhill, Uckfield, Wadhurst, East Grinstead, Lewes, Seaford and surrounding areas. We have our own part-time rabbi, Rabbi Roberta Harris-Eckstein, and we meet one Friday evening and one Saturday morning a month for services. We also hold some festival services.
See our Services page for the latest information on what's on.
