Emanuel Synagogue

About the campaign

As campaign patron, David Gonski AC provided the leadership for a $10 million fundraising effort in support of the redevelopment of Emanuel Synagogue in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

The capital campaign theme focused on the shared Faith, Future, and Community of potential supporters. Exceeding the fundraising target by over $1 million, Emanuel Synagogue has now built state of the art learning spaces to facilitate dynamic, engaging study and discussion.

At the heart of the redevelopment is a library which provides access to materials to inspire and challenge as well as a dedicated purpose built place to study and learn. These new facilities provided by the capital campaign reflect the values of Emanuel Synagogue.

The results

The success of the fundraising campaign has ensured the 80 plus year history of the organisation continues for generations to come.
