About Kehilat Nitzan

Kehilat Nitzan is the only Masorti (Conservative) congregation in Melbourne, Australia. We offer traditional egalitarian Shabbat and chagim (festival) services and shiurim (study sessions) in a warm and friendly environment. We welcome and include everyone irrespective of age, gender, or sexual orientation. We are committed to Jewish tradition and law (halachah), Israel and Zionism, Jewish learning and the study of Torah.

Our Rabbi

Our spiritual leader is Rabbi Yonatan Sadoff. Check out his blog where he shares his thoughts on the weekly Torah portion. He encourages comments and discussion so please check in weekly! The From Our Rabbi page also includes links to some divrei Torah presented to the congregation.



Note – Due to unexpected circumstances, the weekly newsletter that provides information about our upcoming events and communal events of interest is not currently available in downloadable format. Members should be receiving the weekly newsletter by email. If you do not receive the newsletter and want to subscribe, contact the office.

Our biannual bulletin provides more in-depth articles and photos of our congregational activities. Read the Rosh Hashanah 2018 edition!
