Newcastle Hebrew Congregation

Dear Community,

We here at Newcastle Hebrew Congregation are in the process of updating our historical archives. Our Congregation is over 100 years old and our Synagogue will be 100 in 2027.

There have been many families and friends pass through our Shule over the years. They have been here for varying amounts of time, but the thing they have in common is they have shared a milestone event within our community. These events include –

  • Weddings
  • Brit Milah
  • Bar Mitzvah
  • Bat Mitzvah
  • Funerals
  • Engagements
  • Debutante Balls
  • Naming Ceremony

There have been so many of these and, unfortunately, our records have a few gaps.

Have you or someone you know been part of this community?

Have you or someone you know visited our Shule to be part of an event?

Do you or someone you know live in the Hunter/Newcastle/Central Coast Region and are not currently part of our community?

We want to hear from you!!

Please help us, we are interested in information, documents, photos, videos/film/audio recordings.

Please don’t hesitate. Contact us via email or phone.
