The Great Synagogue War Memorial CentrePrint Page Print this page

The Great Synagogue War Memorial Centre was erected in memory of those who served in World War One and World War Two. The foundation stone for the centre was laid on the 20th February 1955 and was opened on the 22nd July 1956. 

The annual meeting oil the Great Synagogue, Elizabeth Street, Sydney, approved of the building of a war memorial centre. The secretary of the Great Synagogue, Mr. Gerald Levy, who announced this yesterday, said the centre would comprise an auditorium for 300 persons, a Jewish library, lecture rooms, lounges, meeting rooms, and accommodation for the Synagogue Youth Club. The estimated cost was £70,000. Building would begin before the end of the year, and was due to be finished by October next year. It would involve an excavation 20 feet in depth below the present Great Synagogue.
