Welcome to Emanuel Synagogue, Sydney

Welcome to Emanuel Synagogue, Sydney

A home where you can live your Judaism in a contemporary world, drawing on ancient teachings and traditions.


We teach and practice that women in Judaism have equal rights and responsibilities. People of all genders have equal roles in Jewish life and in the community. We sit together and engage and participate equally in Jewish services, Jewish life and in society.

We are proud to acknowledge there is more than one way to believe, practice and live as a Jew — a fact that has been embraced by Judaism throughout history. Our different streams of Judaism complement and strengthen each other - offer choices and make for a stronger community.

Our lives are enriched through diversity. We embrace the diversity of Jewish experience, thought and practice. We provide a Jewish home for people of all backgrounds and gender orientation who support our mission and values. Just as an ecosystem is stronger the more diverse it is, so too is our congregation.
