Jewish Kent - Kent Liberal  Jewish Community

Kent Liberal Jewish Community - Ohel Rachel (KLJC)

KLJC is a Progressive Jewish community welcoming all Jews, including those with non-Jewish partners and those who are Jews by choice.  Formed in 1991, we have around 50 members living in all parts of Kent.   We are a Registered Charity and are affiliated to Liberal Judaism, a national organisation with 10,000 members in 35 constituent congregations.

  • Services are held at a wheelchair-accessible location in central Maidstone on one Saturday each month and on the High Holydays. The atmosphere is informal and there is Kiddush after the service followed by refreshments.
  • There are regular Cheder classes.
  • There is a communal Seder on the second night of Passover.
  • There are regular social events including an annual barbecue.
  • Members receive a monthly newsletter.
  • All Jewish men and women and their families will receive a warm welcome in our community.
