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

Please note that effective from Monday, 7 September 2015  entry or egress from Kenilworth Street at the rear of the synagogue on Shabbat and High Holydays will NO longer be available. Under advisement from the CSG, the Board has made a decision that in order to provide the highest standard of security the back door will no longer be utilised. We fully understand that this will inconvenience many, including the elderly or disabled, but our main priority is the protection of all congregants.

Please use the main entrance on Bon Accord Avenue in future for entry and egress.
