Welcome to the Great Synagogue, where we offer guided tours led by our knowledgeable Rabbis and Tour Guides. Explore our stunning Shule, a jewel of Victorian architecture and the earliest surviving Synagogue in Sydney. Since 1878, the Great Synagogue has been a central hub for Jewish culture and worship, boasting a vibrant modern orthodox congregation.span>

Our tours last approximately 1 hour and include a video presentation followed by a Q&A session with a Rabbi or Tour Facilitator. We accommodate groups of up to 160 attendees, with tours available on Mondays to Thursdays each week. Please book through our tours calendar below.
