The Bloom Foundation, in partnership with Brighton & Hove Hebrew Congregation, is working with the local community on the potential development of the New Church Road Synagogue site.

The current proposal for the development will include a variety of new communal assets. At the heart of the site will be a beautiful, inspirational Shul, as well as proposals to include; a kosher café, retail of kosher food, education facilities, a ‘we work’ facility – to be used by the community to develop businesses and work on gaining employment, a function hall for simchas and community events and residential accommodation. In an effort to maximise the value of the redevelopment, we would like to solicit feed- back from the Brighton & Hove Jewish community. Please complete our short survey so we can understand which aspect(s) of the scheme will be of value to you, and if there is other provision that we should consider.

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions about the development please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
