Welcome to the Stenecourt Synagogue community website.  We are a vibrant Jewish community based in North Manchester. 

We are in the middle of preparing a new website, so we apologise if this current website is not as up to date as we would like it to be.  But you can see what is going on here on our home page, and our weekly timetable can be found if you click HERE

Thank you for visiting, we hope you enjoy our site.  



Stenecourt BeYachad 13th March
On Friday night 13th March, Netzach and Bnei Akiva will be joining in for a Stenecourt BeYachad Tefilla in the main shul.

Rabbi Benjy’s Induction
The weekend of Rabbi Benjy’s Induction is Friday 13th March to Sunday 15th March 2015.

The dinner on the Friday night with guest speaker Ashley Blaker is a sell out!

Table Talk - Rabbi Rubenstein

TABLE TALK - Parshayot Nitzavim-Vayelech 5770

I hope the ideas contained below, will provide you with some topics for discussion, at your Shabbos table.

Weekly Halocha - Rabbi Simmonds


1. If you are using your garden on Shabbos ,and want to carry out food furniture toys from the house etc, you must make sure the garden is properly enclosed. Just because it is a private garden does not mean that it is Halachically a “private area” “RESHUS HAYOCHID”. If you are not sure seek competent advice on the issue

2. Climbing up/ on trees or use of a tree house is not permitted on Shabbos.

3. Take care when carrying drinks not to spill any on the soil or grass.
