V'samachta b'chagecha - "You shall rejoice in your festival" (D'varim 16:14)

Our community celebrates these ancient and modern festivals and commemorations (each beginning at sundown on the evening before the date shown):

  • Rosh Hashanah - 30 September 2019
  • Yom Kippur - 9 October 2019
  • Sukkot - 14 September 2019 (seven days)

Contact our office or see our e-newsletter for information about special NSTE programs and events organised for each festival/commemoration.

We also honour special days in the Jewish calendar, such as Rosh Chodesh (the new month) and special Shabbatot, through the traditional additions and adaptations to our liturgy and Torah readings.  In addition, each year we hold a special commemoration ceremony following the Shabbat service closest to ANZAC Day.
