We are Modern Orthodox and are a constituent member of the United Synagogue

Kingston, Surbiton & District Synagogue (KS&DS)

We reopened for services in mid-April 2021 - please join us.

Welcome to KSDS one of the largest Orthodox communities in South West London yet small enough to give a warm and friendly welcome to all. It was established on its present site in 1957 just a few minutes walk from the beautiful River Thames.
Our members come not only from Kingston and Surbiton but from the surrounding areas and some who have moved to North London still retain their links with us.

The community welcomes visitors and we provide services on Shabbat, all the Holy Days and some weekdays. There is a wide range of social and cultural events and we play host to a number of groups and organisations.
Give us a try and see if you like us.
