HANUKKAH AND COVID-19 – update 10/12/2020
We will be celebrating Hanukkah in the Shul on Friday 11 December, and have a handy guide to the evenings at home here. Join us for Friday evening and Saturday morning services, and please register to attend as the NSW government requires us to keep a register to allow for contact-tracing for COVID.
Newtown Synagogue is the only Jewish Synagogue in the Inner West of Sydney.
Newtown Shul seeks to provide a space for people to come together for a variety of both social and religious events to celebrate Jewish life cycle events and Jewish heritage.
Mostly, people frequent the Synagogue to meet friends and make new ones, in a relaxed and accepting environment. There are many who come to the Synagogue as a place to pray and reflect.
During COVID we have weekly services, on Friday nights and Saturday mornings. Outside of the COVID we host a weekly Friday night dinner in our community hall. The Kosher food is 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 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.
