For early risers, the week gets off to an inspiring start with our Monday morning minyan at 6:30am. Timed to finish by 7:30am to enable people to get to work,, for those with time on their hands, there is an opportunity to hang around and schmooze! Minyanim may be held on Thursdays on other days for special occasions, or where a member wishes to recite kaddish

Our Friday night, services commence at 6:00pm all year round and finish with a Kiddush providing an opportunity to welcome visitors. On a few Friday nights in the summer, we hold our legendary Friday Night Socials where we commence with Kabbalat Shabbat to a musical accompaniment featuring our talented guitarist-Rabbi and other musicians in the congregation. After Shabbat comes in, candles are lit and a delicious Shabbat dinner is served.

The Saturday morning service commences at 9:30 am and is preceded by a shiur with the Rabbi at 8:45am. Following the service, there is always a full Kiddush, and frequently there is a simcha to make the Shabbat more joyous.

Shabbat Mincha services commence 90 minutes before Shabbat goes out in winter, or at 5:30pm in summer. This is always followed by seudah shlishit, a small festive meal, with an opportunity to quiz the Rabbi about the weekly sidra.

FESTIVAL SERVICES

Evening, morning and afternoon services are held on all festivals and major fast days, with communal dinners or celebrations as appropriate.

Erev Simchat Torah

Chanukah

Purim
There is always the traditional megillah reading in the evening and morning with a celebratory Kiddush and activities for children during the day.

Pesach
We hold a communal seder, usually on the second night, which provides an opportunity for those without a seder to attend to enjoy a memorable Pesach experience. The communal seder is structured so that it is child-friendly, ie it is fun and does not go on too long, so that people of all ages can benefit from the event .

Anzac Day Service
Held on a Shabbat close to Anzac Day, is an important opportunity to remember the fallen in the world wars, as the Synagogue was originally dedicated as a war memorial. The service is attended by local members of parliament and other dignitaries and always features a key-note address and a Kiddush or lunch to follow.

Shavuot
Features a communal dairy dinner prepared by the community which is followed by a study session on a broad range of topics delivered by members of the community.
