Orthodox Congregation

The Orthodox Congregation holds services every Shabbat and Yom Tov as well as on Sunday  and Rosh Chodesh Mornings

Our spiritual leader and halachic advisor is Rabbi Meltzer, and our services run accordance to halacha in every aspect.

Friday night and Yom Tov nights: 6:00pm during the winter and 6:15pm during the Summer
Shabbat morning: 9:30am followed by Kiddush and Mincha in the winter months
Sunday morning: 8:30am followed by Breakfast and a Halacha Shiur by Rabbi Meltzer
Rosh Chodesh: 7:00am

On the Yomim Tovim during the mornings we begin at 9:30 except on Rosh Hashanah which begins at 9:00am

Rabbi Meltzer gives his sermon prior to Mussaf except on days when the Progressive Community has services in which it will be prior to Kiddush


We aim to create an engaging space for women within our congregation; women are invited and encouraged to give Divrei Torah before the Reading of the Law and the Haftorah. Each week women kiss the Torah and Simchat Torah the ladies' section dances with several Torah scrolls. On special occasions such as Bat Mitzvot or Simchat Torah women are encouraged to create a special women's service of either some of the tefillah, like Kabbalat Shabbat, or a special women's Torah Reading service.


If you have a Yahrzeit for a loved one please join us in shul on the Shabbat preceding the Yarzheit to recite Kaddish and the El-Maleh Rachamim memorial prayers*. If you would like to organise a special prayer service for the Yarzheit please be in touch with the ACTJC Secretary to arrange the details.

*There are certain festive shabbatot that this prayer is not said.
