Visitors



Visiting over Shabbat?

We are always delighted to welcome Jewish visitors to services at The Great Synagogue. If you are here on a Shabbat morning, please make yourself known to the Gabbai if you are a male; if there is a place in our call-up schedule we would be delighted to offer you an aliya. Should you be able to call or email The Great Synagogue before Shabbat, then we can make your names known to security and welcome you properly.

Should you wish to make a donation in honour of your visit, you are welcome to call the synagogue on +612 9267 2477 after Shabbat or email us in the office.

Visiting over Pesach?

Are you planning to be in Sydney on the first days of Pesach? We can help direct you to a communal seder! Contact the office for more information.
