The Great Synagogue Foundation invites you to come on this journey into the future with us. 

 

YESTERDAY
As the oldest fully-functioning Orthodox synagogue on mainland Australia, The Great has always been the Jewish centre of Sydney, for both our members and the wider Sydney community.

TODAY
The Great’s family enjoys a home which is warm and inclusive, one that creates community for Jews of all ages and interests. The Great represents Jews and Judaism in the best way to the wider community, serving families and individuals from around Sydney.

TOMORROW
The Great will continue to play a special part in the lives of so many people, both within our community and beyond. We need to ensure it maintains its relevance in being the heart and soul of our community for today, tomorrow and generations to come.

 



The Great plays a special part in the lives of so many people, both within our community and beyond. Our ambition is to secure our community's future to ensure its viability, sustainability, and continuity.  

We need to ensure The Great Synagogue maintains its relevance, which requires continual renewal and reinvigoration. It is a heritage building that requires regular maintenance to retain its beauty and structure. The Foundation ensures that The Great Synagogue will continue being the heart and soul of our community for generations to come. 

You can help make The Great Synagogue Foundation's vision a reality!

 

 

The Great Synagogue Foundation launched in front of a crowd of 480 guests on Wednesday,16 February 2022.

Chair of The Great Synagogue Foundation, Garry Browne AM spoke passionately to launch the Foundation before the spectacular Live at Yours concert saying...

"Our forefathers had great insight and wisdom to not only build and establish this most beautiful synagogue by creating and nurturing a Jewish community that is strong and vibrant and a very prominent part of the broader Australian Community. From its earliest days The Great was always going to be special and it soon became the beating heart of Sydney’s Jewish community. One that creates a wonderful environment for the Jewish community, for ALL ages and interests.

The Great represents Judaism in the best way it can to the wider community, serving families and individuals from around Sydney and beyond. The Great is much more than JUST another Synagogue; it is a national treasure, Heritage listed, the very heart of Sydney’s Jewish Community! The Great Synagogue Foundation has been established to ensure the financial viability and continuity of The Great Synagogue and our community. Your support of the Foundation means securing the future of the Sydney Jewish community for our children, their children and for generations to come."

 

It was a fantastic evening, enjoyed by all who attended.
