Message from the Rabbi

"Maroubra Shule has a special type of warmth and friendliness that really defines the unique type of community we are. It is a great honour and privilege to serve this wonderful and growing community.

It is a deep passion of mine to share the joy and beauty of Judaism with others. In this role there will be countless opportunities to do just that!

We are here for you. We would love to meet up and chat, have a coffee etc. A community is made up of individuals, every Jew is a diamond and is precious. We feel privileged and honoured to be able to support and serve Hashem’s beloved people."

Our History

Maroubra Synagogue was established as the Kingsford Maroubra Hebrew Congregation; built more than 70 years ago by Holocaust survivors as an act of faith, belief and defiance. These qualities, instilled by the founding families, continue to set the tone of a community that is aware of its past and at the same time embracing of its future.

We have established a reference library for members to access, to read about the history of the community, not just locally but as a whole for the Jewish people. The congregation has grown over the years and the buildings accordingly have undergone several upgrades. In 2015 the hall, front courtyard, kitchen and bathroom facilities were rebuilt. The administration area was also renovated.  In 2022 we completed a renovation of the rear courtyard and entry, creating some beautiful spaces for the community to use. 

Maroubra Synagogue is also linked to Mount Sinai College through the work of Rabbi Zalman Goldstein at the school and the young families who attend services. The two organisations also combine to provide young children through to the teenagers and opportunity to come together for Jewish learning and fun, also with the support of Bnei Akiva. 

The community offers a new function facility with a commercial kitchen attached, along with other modern facilities.
Located in Sydney’s south east, we have just erected a new eruv that is connected to the established one in the east.
We are a registered not-for-profit. Donations are tax deductible.
The shul at its heart is a vibrant, relevant community.
We hope to welcome you soon.


A community which is proud, in touch and knowledgeable of orthodox Judaism, supportive of Israel and caring of each other.


Engaging the Jewish community through welcoming, caring and inspiring services, educational opportunities and events.


Orthodox Judaism, Community, Love of Israel, Education, Communication, Welcoming Environment.
