As a heritage-listed historic building, the Hobart synagogue is expensive to maintain and update.
The congregation takes its role as custodian of the shul with the utmost seriousness, but the small number of Jews in Tasmania (and therefore members) serves to constrain the funds available to us. We have been fortunate to benefit from two bequests, but these can only be drawn on for highly limited purposes.
As a result, we are forced to approach spending proposals with great caution and lack the resources to offer some of the common services found in other congregations.
Donations are our major source of operational income.
Your help in the form of either a donation or a bequest will be greatly appreciated.
