Welcome to Emanuel Synagogue, Sydney

YOUR VIRTUAL HOME

A home where you can live your Judaism in a contemporary world, drawing on ancient teachings and traditions. Because of the current extraordinary situation, we are transitioning to be a virtual community at this time offering an increasing range of services and activities online. For more details click here.

Emanuel Synagogue has also supported the creation of   Dunera an exciting new
online initiative  to bring the world of art, culture and inspiring live events
for the Australian Jewish community. 

Equality

We teach and practise that women in Judaism have equal rights and responsibilities. People of all genders have equal roles in Jewish life and in the community. We sit together and engage and participate equally in Jewish services, Jewish life and in society.

Pluralist

We are proud to acknowledge there is more than one way to believe, practise and live as a Jew — a fact that has been embraced by Judaism throughout history. Our different streams of Judaism complement and strengthen each other - offer choices and make for a stronger community.

READ MORE

Diverse

Our lives are enriched through diversity. We embrace the diversity of Jewish experience, thought and practice. We provide a Jewish home for people of all backgrounds and gender orientation who support our mission and values. Just as an ecosystem is stronger the more diverse it is, so too is our congregation.

Our Mission
