Synagogue and Temple Tours

The Jewish Museum offers tours to two local synagogues: the historic and architecturally unique St Kilda Synagogue; and Temple Beth Israel, the principal progressive synagogue in Melbourne. Tours of the synagogues provide a meaningful added dimension to the displays and exhibitions at the Museum.

Tours to St Kilda Synagogue, located behind the Museum, are conducted every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 12.30 pm, and on Sundays at 12.30 and 3.00 pm – if available. Tours to nearby Temple Beth Israel are by arrangement. Groups visiting the Museum may book tours to either or both synagogues.

Each tour takes approximately 30 to 40 minutes and is included in the price of admission.
