Maroubra Synagogue takes orthodox Jewish teachings and traditions, inviting them into a vibrant environment, showing how they remain relevant and enhance how we support one another in a true community. We share a love of Judaism and support for Israel. Our community caters for all ages, which special youth services and regular learning opportunities for adults a feature. We welcome visitors, regular and occasional participants and new members.
Maroubra Synagogue is linked to Mount Sinai College through the work of Rabbi Yossi at the school and the young families who attend services. The two organisations also combine to bring a Shlichot program to work with the young children through to the teenagers, with the support of Bnei Akiva.
The community offers a new function facility with a commercial kitchen attached, along with other modern facilities.
A community which is proud, in touch and knowledgeable of orthodox Judaism, supportive of Israel and caring of each other.

Maroubra Synagogue was established as the Kingsford Maroubra Hebrew Congregation; built more than 60 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. Most recently, in 2015 the hall, courtyard, kitchen and bathroom facilities were rebuilt. The administration area was also renovated.
Rabbi Yossi Friedman leads the community and is ably supported by a team of hard working staff; including Administrator, Heidi Baltineshter and our Office Support Eva Grosin. They assist families with all their needs including the co-ordination of their functions.
Maroubra Synagogue offers a wide range of Children’s programmes, catering for all age groups.
