Welcome to the Hobart Synagogue.
The oldest synagogue still in use in Australia—and the Southern Hemisphere—is home to the Hobart Hebrew Congregation. We've served the Jewish community of Tasmania since 1845, and our first minutes dating to 1842 are held along with other early documents at the State Archives.

Please join us for prayer, a visit, or social events. Our congregation comprises Orthodox as well as Progressive members, and we're delighted to offer regular services in both traditions.

You can support our activities by making a donation or leaving a bequest.

And if you live in Tasmania, help us to shape the next phase of our existence by becoming a member.
