The membership of these
congregations consists of 1100 families. The Union publishes a magazine,
Levend Joods Geloof ('Living Judaism'), which covers a broad spectre of Jewish issues.
The Union is also responsible for the publication of prayerbooks for the liberal services.
All congregations have their own synagogues. In Amsterdam en Rotterdam these are modern buildings,
in The Hague the Liberal congregation owns the 270 years old former Portuguese Synagogue, the Liberal congregations in Tilburg and Twente use former orthodox synagogues.
In Arnhem the congregation has to share its building with a church. The newest congregation Utrecht rents a hall, which is seen as a temporary solution. The Liberal congregations in The Netherlands grow steadily. Each one of them is a living and lively centre of Jewish life, Where you can find besides the Shabbat and Holiday services, educational courses and social events.
