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
