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, which aims to achieve a sense of community within the wide range of its members and participants.

The prime aim is to offer a warm, friendly and welcoming atmosphere to the many people who enter our doors from all walks of life. 

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, visiting the synagogue and many other topics. For school group visits to the Brisbane Synagogue or other queries please use the Contact Us page.

The Stan Been Simcha Bench

The Stan Been Simcha Bench will sit just in front of our bimah and will be occupied by members of the community and their family who are celebrating a simcha on that day in shul. Whether it be a bat or barmitzvah, a wedding, a baby-naming ceremony and so on, family members will enjoy being in a highlighted and honorary position.

Community members are invited to become sponsors of this initiative to honour the memory of the late Stan Been.

Details are available here.

Visitors please note – there is currently no eruv in Brisbane, so carrying on Shabbat and Yom Tov is not encouraged, however the shul can supply all you need.
