East Melbourne Synagogue

Description

The only synagogue in Melbourne’s CBD, East Melbourne Synagogue is architecturally significant as an example of the fine work of noted Melbourne architects Crouch and Wilson. It has an imposing Renaissance Revival façade with the unusual addition of two octagonal domes flanking the central pediment, an intact tabernacle and unique glass-fusion windows.

What's On

Self-guided tours of the main sanctuary and mezzanine women’s gallery. Volunteer members of the congregation will be on hand to answer questions about the synagogue’s history, the meaning of various elements of the sanctuary, and about Judaism in general.
