Our community has nearly 450 adult members or about 350 families. Membership ranges from the very young to the old. Our members are a diverse group, with a huge range of professions and interests. Many live within a five mile radius of the synagogue, but we do have members from much further afield who could not imagine being a member anywhere else.
Over the course of an average week at the synagogue, you will see members playing bridge, rock and jazz musicians rehearsing for a service, adults studying Hebrew and subjects of Jewish interest, children learning to do Israeli dancing, attend youth club or studying Hebrew, young and old attending services on Shabbat and a Monday Afternoon Club social for the older members of our community.
There are many families who have more than one faith in the household or Jewish and no-faith. These families are absolutely welcomed into our community and the non-Jewish individual often finds themselves sucked into the excitement of being part of a community. Therefore, we offer non-Jews who are spouses or partners the opportunity to become a friend of the synagogue or have a mixed family membership, to reflect their commitment and to give them an honoured status as supportive of Jewish life at FPS.
