Established in the 1960s, the Birmingham Central Synagogue is in the pleasant neighbourhood of Edgbaston.
About The Birmingham Central Synagogue
The centre has a group of dedicated volunteers who regularly provide transport services to Shul events and offer daily learning sessions. It also supplies excellent Kosher food, and welcomes people of all ages and level of abilities to take part in its activities. Today, the Birmingham Central Synagogue has a decent-sized 700-seat auditorium, and a spacious community function hall that is suitable for various organised events.
One of Birmingham's most picturesque suburbs, Edgbaston has many grand family houses and attractive tree-lined streets, and is among the most affluent communities in the Midlands. It's probably best known for being the home of Edgbaston Cricket Ground, which is one of the most visited in the country and the headquarters of the Warwickshire County Cricket Club.
The Birmingham Central Synagogue is within walking distance of the club, and is also a short walk from scenic Calthorpe Park, Cannon Hill Park, and the Winterbourne Botanic Garden. For accommodation nearby, you could try the affordable, well-appointed Apollo Hotel, which provides stylish modern accommodation and free internet access.
