The Brisbane Hebrew Congregation is the largest Jewish organisation in Queensland & its Synagogue is the oldest in Queensland.

Under the leadership of the Board and Rabbi Levi Jaffe, the Brisbane Hebrew Congregation offers many of the services which are important to a Jewish way of life.

The Brisbane Hebrew Congregation is a modern and dynamic Orthodox Synagogue / Shul, which aims to achieve a sense of community within the wide range of its members and participants.

Its prime aim is to offer a warm, friendly and welcoming atmosphere to the many people who enter its doors from all walks of life. Our minhag is to daven nusach Ashkenaz, as found in the Artscroll, Koren Sacks, Singer and similar siddurim.

The Brisbane Jewish Community welcomes all and promotes active participation, within the setting of its charter. For the many people that attend the Shul each week, the Brisbane Synagogue has become like a second home. There is a warmth and atmosphere that is created during the services and other activities that can not be experienced elsewhere. This is in part due to the sense of belonging to a Jewish community with a long, rich history which is obvious to anyone visiting the Shul but perhaps more attributable to the general feeling shared by many that the Jewish community continues to succeed in building a Shul and community of which we can all be proud.

On this site you will find information about the Brisbane Jewish community, activities, kosher products, services and many other topics. For School or group visits to the Brisbane Synagogue please use the Contact Us page. If there is more information you require, please contact us.


We invite you to join us for our annual multi-media Megillah reading and Kids Fancy Dress Competition on Wednesday evening, March 4, at 7pm.

Hamatachen will be served, following the Megillah reading, in the Brisbane Synagogue Memorial Hall.

The Megillah will also be read at the Shacharit morning service, Thursday March 5, at 6am.

Happy Purim to all.
