Welcome Home


The Central Synagogue is a modern Orthodox synagogue and the spiritual home of the largest Jewish congregation in the Southern Hemisphere. We are an active and vibrant Jewish centre for all ages, which stands solidly on three fundamental and powerful foundations: Spiritual Life, Continuity of a Vibrant Congregation, and Love and Support of Israel. Our community gathers in the warm and loving sanctuary to pray, observe Shabbat and festivals, or to commemorate special anniversaries and yahrzeits. Our doors are always open for people to find emotional support, spend precious time with family and friends, and to demonstrate their connection with the Jewish people throughout the world.

Important Announcement

We are pleased to advise that we now have received consent from Waverley Council to develop 2 Kenilworth Street. However, as part of our consent, we regret to advise that the Council has imposed a condition that prohibits all entry and egress from Kenilworth Street to the synagogue with the only exception being security personnel.  Whilst we understand this will cause inconvenience to many, we have no choice but to advise you that all entry and egress is prohibited with immediate effect. This in no way prohibits the elderly or disabled from being dropped off in Bon Accord Avenue.
