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 song-filled Friday night services begin at 6 pm. Our traditional, egalitarian, and inclusive Shabbat morning services begin at 9:30 a.m. We also hold a weekly morning minyan on Wednesdays at 7 a.m. – a great start to the day and a help to our congregants who are saying kaddish.


Our biannual bulletin provides in-depth articles and photos of our congregational activities. Read the Pesach 2019 edition!
