Our current Synagogue building, the 'Great Synagogue', is affectionately called the 'Gardens Shul' as it is situated within the Company Gardens just down Government Avenue and a short walk from Parliament. It is a historic landmark for both the Jewish and wider South African communities. The Synagogue building, visited by thousands of tourists annually, is an architectural masterpiece both inside and out and is widely regarded as one of the most magnificent Synagogues in the world.

We are a Mainstream Orthodox congregation offering beautiful Shul Services, spiritual enrichment as well as educational and social opportunities for all age groups in a warm, friendly communal atmosphere. We are a family Congregation where every Jew is welcome.

We offer full services from cradle to grave. We pride ourselves in our professionalism and personal attention both to detail and to the individual and every occasion held at our Shul is sure to be a memorable one. We also do our best to ensure that every congregant and visitor feels welcome in our Shul.
