Adelaide Hebrew Congregation is South Australia's only orthodox synagogue.
We are located at 13 Flemington Street GLENSIDE less than 5kms from the centre of Adelaide. Our circular synagogue has unique acoustic properties and can seat 300 people.

Our previous synagogue building in the city in Synagogue Place was deconsecrated and renovated by various owners and is no longer a synagogue or religious site.

Adelaide Hebrew Congregation is a very small congregation which currently holds morning services for Shabbat and Festivals, and night and morning services for the High Holidays. As services are sometimes cancelled, Jewish visitors to Adelaide should contact the office in advance and check the website to avoid disappointment.

Our synagogue customs were based on the those of Duke's Place synagogue of London from the 1800's from which many original pioneers came. We still maintain these customs such as the prayer for the Queen and Leaders of the Nation, honouring the chatan Torah and chatan Bereishit with a canopy parade on Simchat Torah, and pledging to charity during an aliyah to the Torah. The Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth is based in London, as is the London Beth Din.

The orientation of our congregation is MODERN ORTHODOX. Men and women sit separately and there is a mechitza curtain separating them downstairs so that older women and young children do not have to climb the stairs. There is a beautiful view from the upstairs ladies gallery for those women and children who can.

We are a small congregation.We are not able to offer Shabbat hosting, accommodation or meals or a communal seder at the current time.
