“A great piece of architecture and history”
Review of Great Synagogue

Great Synagogue
Reviewed 9 July 2017

The great synagogue is beautifully and artistically designed. The rabbi of the synagogue gave us a tour and description which was accompanied by a video. The history of the synagogue is linked to that of the Jewish presence in Australia. It was a very moving experience.

A "must" for anyone, including other faiths. The tour guide was most engaging and one could tell he LOVED telling us about his beloved Synagogue. (Understandably, no photos were allowed)

This is Sydney's oldest synagogue and the architecture both external from Elizabeth Street) and internal is well worth seeing. The ceiling in the main area is celestial blue with scattered gold stars and is just beautiful. It is open a couple of days a week for visitors.

Was here as part of the Sydney Open Event. As a group we were seated for an abbreviated 20min tour of the Synagogue. Security was tight as that is the world we live in now!

Guides were passionate and knowledgable. All questions were well handled.

Very fancy and elaborate interior with lots of history and anecdotes attached. Ritual is a key part of being a practising Jew and their pride is evident.

I walked away feeling more informed however will be back again. I am intregued.

Only viewed again from the outside and looked like a fabulous older building of Sydney. More time required in this great city to see everything1
