Welcome to the web site of The Great Synagogue, the most beautiful Synagogue in Australia and one of the finest in the world.
The Great Synagogue is one of the national treasures of Australia but it is also a vibrant congregation with activities throughout the week and a full range of services. In our site you will find information relating to The Great Synagogue itself and also a range of information on Jews in Australia and Judaism generally.
You can check the times for services, what events we have on, what we offer for members and visitors as well as read a history of the synagogue building and a fascinating FAQ section on Jews and Judaism and Jewish attitudes to a range of modern issues and ideas.
If you are visiting Sydney during the holyday season, by cruise ship or otherwise, visit us at The Great Synagogue at one of our regular tours at 12 noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you want to attend services, please check times elsewhere in this website.
