South Australia's ONLY orthodox synagogue is at 13 Flemington Street, GLENSIDE, an inner south-east Adelaide suburb, serving the Jewish community of South Australia.

Adelaide Hebrew Congregation, established 1848, opened its first synagogue in Adelaide in 1850. After 140 years of worship in Synagogue Place in the city, the congregation relocated to a beautiful new synagogue purpose-built at Glenside which can seat 300 people. The foundation stone of the new synagogue was laid in 1989. The congregation is one of the United Hebrew Congregations of the British Commonwealth and continues these Modern Orthodox traditions.

AHC Board of Management represents the orthodox Jewish community to government and other organizations. Adelaide Hebrew Congregation Inc is a member of the Council of Orthodox Synagogues of Australia Ltd and affiliated through the local Jewish Community Council of South Australia Inc. to the Executive Council of Australian Jewry.

BEWARE of non-Jewish groups falsely claiming to be a "Jewish congregation" in SA as they have no status in the Jewish community
