see the Jewish history of Sydney with a private guide
Jewish Heritage Tour of Sydney gives you an insight into Jewish life in this vibrant city. Being Jewish myself and emigrating from South Africa, I was fascinated by the Jewish history of Sydney and although it is relatively young, it is fascinating.
We begin in the historic Rocks area, home to the first Jewish settlers, where many of them began trading.
We visit the Sydney Jewish Museum to understand what the first 100 years of life was like for Jews, as well as learning of their contribution to the war effort and what contemporary life here is like for this community.
Our next stop is Central synagogue, the largest in the southern hemisphere.
Our time at Jewish House and Our Big Kitchen gives you an insight as to how the community help the disadvantaged.
Eat street or Hall street Bondi is next, where we visit the Kosher butcher and Jewish bookstore as well as the kosher and Israeli restaurants.
En route back to the city, we travel through the affluent Eastern suburbs, home to many prominent Jewish families
Our Jewish Heritage Tour of Sydney gives you a window into
Jewish life in this beautiful harbourside city.
You will experience the Jewish Museum for a private guided tour in-to how Jewish life began here and the impact Jews have made in
Australia as well as their input in the war effort.
You will see the majestic Great Synagogue completed in 1883 and then visit modern Central Synagogue, the largest in the Southern hemisphere.
We venture into the local Eastern Suburbs where contemporary
Jewish families thrive and you get to see how they live and play.
Next stop *Our Big Kitchen* a benevolent community kitchen start-ed by a rabbi and now helping diverse communities acrossSydney.
No itinerary into Jewish Sydney would be complete without a stop in Bondi, a fascinating beachside suburb with a kosher butcher, baker and Jewish bookstore and Katzys kosher restaurant.
This is a private tour meant to accommodate your needs and schedule.
Please note the Synagogue may be closed due to circumstances beyond my contol
