Welcome to Beit Aharon

Beit Aharon is a family-friendly, modern orthodox synagogue located in the centre of the Melbourne Jewish community. As an Orthodox congregation, we welcome and embrace all Jews, and we affirm our commitment to treating all with dignity and respect.

Our community aims to be inclusive. We encourage the full participation of all Jews in the religious life of our Shule to the full extent it is halakhically possible. Beit Aharon is at the forefront of facilitating the involvement of women in its congregational life. The Torah is always brought into the Women’s Section of the Shule. Women are supported to say Kaddish, to deliver D’var Torah and to recite prayers for Australia and Israel. We will not tolerate harassment against any person in our congregation on any ground, including age, gender, disability or sexual orientation.

Our tephillot are liberally seasoned with the tunes, minhagim and sounds of Ashkenaz, Sephard, Chabad, Yemenite and Moroccan Jewry.We run Children’s Services for different age groups, preparing children to become full members of the Jewish community who are confident both in and outside the Shule environment.

We welcome you to join us at services and events. Please feel free to contact us with any questions about Beit Aharon or about the wider Jewish community.

Welcome to Beit Aharon!

We are so excited to have you with us. Beit Aharon is a family-friendly space for prayer and contemplation, song and personal growth. We act on our belief that every Jew is welcome to be included in our community and we come in all shapes and sizes!

This year we have a gorgeous and in depth children’s program, designed with our friends at UJEB so that our younger members find Shule interactive, engaging, fun and full of fond memories.

All small guests, visitors, and members are encouraged to try it out and tell us what their favourite things are so that we can give them more of what they love.

For our congregation, we aim for those same things we just told you about for our children… fond memories, interacting and engagement  – as well as serious contemplation about bettering ourselves and the world around us. For this we are delighted to announce that this year we are having an amazing wonderful chazan come lead our service, along with our regularly brilliant team.

So whether you come as a lone warrior, bring a gaggle of children, or are cajouling your partner… we hope that everyone comes away having had a wonderful Shule experience.

If you are a fly by the seat of your pants sort, not sure of your plans, you’re welcome to make a last minute decision and come by. The more the merrier.

If you would prefer to have a seat guaranteed – for you, members of your family and friends… just click the link and we can give you peace of mind and you can sleep well knowing that it is all organised.
