The Western Marble Arch Synagogue is the community with a heart at the heart of Londonís West End.
Welcome to the website of the Western Marble Arch Synagogue, a vibrant and caring community just a few steps from Oxford Street, Park Lane and Hyde Park in the centre of London. The synagogue is under the spiritual leadership of Rabbi Lionel Rosenfeld.
We hold familiar Ashkenazi Shabbat services with a superb Kiddush every week as well as a young professional's fortnightly Shabbat service, (Sephardic style). If you wish to attend our daily morning minyan, you will be assured of a good breakfast afterwards to set you on your way (and we always have an evening minyan too). We host regular social, cultural and educational events as well as stimulating shiurim and lecture courses. This is a great place to meet old friends and to make new ones. Whatever your age or needs may be, you will always receive the warmest of welcomes at Marble Arch.
