Events

Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the Sydney Beth Din have recommended that all minyanim in all Synagogues be suspended until further notice. The rabbi is live streaming via facebook, and classes continue on-line.

We, at Newtown Synagogue, are following this advice and there will be no in-person services, lessons, shabbat dinners or lunches until further notice. Please see the letter from the Sydney Beth Din below for more information.
