Newtown Synagogue is the only Jewish Synagogue in the Inner West of Sydney.
Newtown Shul seeks to provide a space for Jewish people come together for a variety of both social and religious events to celebrate Jewish life cycle events and our Jewish heritage.
Mostly, people frequent the Synagogue to meet friends and make new ones in a really relaxed an accepting environment, however, there are many who come to the Synagogue as a place to be reverent.
We host a weekly Friday night dinner in our social hall. The food prepared and cooked by a roster of volunteers and enjoyed by people from all walks of life who come and join us.
Newtown Synagogue’s “classic hits” such as our Chanukah Menorah Lighting, our awesome Purim Party, our memorable Pesach Seder and our heart-warming Lag B’Omer Bonfire are well attended and perfect opportunities from Jewish people to discover more about Jewish spirituality, practice and tradition.
The Inner West Jewish community is constantly growing and we’d love to welcome you to our spiritual home.
