Dover Heights Shule is a Chabad orthodox Jewish community-based congregation, started in 1997 in Sydney on the grounds of the former Yeshiva College Dover Heights Campus, under the leadership of Rabbi Motti and Esti Feldman.  

 

It is situated on the corner of Blake and Napier Streets, Dover Heights, New South Wales, Australia.

 

From humble beginnings in a classroom, a beautiful Shule was built in 2003 through the generosity of major benefactors Ian and Sara Miller.  In 2009, the Shule Board - led by Robert Gescheit, first President of the Shule - on behalf of the Shule community, negotiated and  purchased the property where the Shule stands on, from the adjacent Kesser Torah College.   Currently, the  Shules very active board is led by our Shule President, Avron Newstadt.

 

The Shule provides all regular services of Shacharis, Mincha and Mariv throughout the week & Shabbat, Sunday morning & evening, High Holidays and festivals. There is a short Shiur after Shacharis and a short Shiur between Mincha and Mariv. 

 

There are a vast array of Shiurim offered including the Wednesday night Parsha Shiur, Shabos afternoon Talmud Shiur, Tuesday afternoon Ladies Tanya Shiur, wedding classes, Shiurim series on a wide variety of topics, and pre Yom tov educational Shiurim.

 

Every Yom Tov is celebrated with programs and activities. Our famous DHS Chanukah cruises, Shavuos dinners and learning programs, communal Pesach Sedorim, Purim parties, Shule Barbques, Kumzitzes, Friday Night Live, to name just a few. There is always something happening at DHS. As well, the Shule offers counselling, baby namings, bris milah, weddings, bereavement visits and financial welfare assistance for people in need. 

 

The Shule also has youth services and programs for boys and girls on Friday evening, Shabbat, all festivals and High Holidays, and during the week and Sundays. The shule retains the services of part time youth directors, Rabbi Aycee and Sorella Abrahams, who lead a group of very capable male and female youth leaders and Bochurim. Our famous Bar and Bas Mitzvah programs continues to attract tens of Bar and Bas Mitzvas to our Shule every year. Our annual winter ski camps and our new summer day camp has attracted scores of youth and continues to expand every year.

 

A Kiddush is provided after every Shabbat & Yom Tov service. Every month on Shabbat Mevarchim we have a sit-down lunch and farbrengens with special guest speakers, together with the now famous Rebbetzin's cholent!
