Welcome to the website of the Liberal Jewish Community in Amsterdam (or in Dutch: de Liberaal Joodse Gemeente Amsterdam).
With 2000 members we are the largest progressive Jewish community in The Netherlands, located in a beautiful building on the south side of Amsterdam.
Join our vibrant, inclusive and active community by attending a service, social event or one of the many interesting workshops or talks.
On Sunday’s, children aged 4 to 12 (girls) or 13 (boys) are welcome to attend our school Talmoed Tora, where we aim to provide children access to lessons in Hebrew and Jewish traditions, so that they can form their own positive Jewish identity.
The Liberaal Joodse Gemeente, or LJG as it is fondly called, welcomes everybody – including non-Jewish people, who are interested in connecting with the community for any reason – although to become a full member, you will need to be, or become, Jewish.
We offer services every Friday night and Saturday morning and we celebrate all Jewish holidays. Please check our website for the numerous other activities on offer.
For more information about becoming a member, please contact us:
☎ 020 – 54 00 122
If you are not a member and would like to attend a service, please contact us at least one week in advance through the secretariat.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
