After four months: The Jewish communities in Australia return to pray in the synagogue Israel today


After a long period in which prayers were forbidden in synagogues, Jewish communities breathed a sigh of relief. • Prayers will be held with rules of social distance and only for those vaccinated with a second vaccine.

After a long period of individual prayers, including the last great days, the Jewish communities in Australia are recovering.

At Rabbi Chaim Levy's Sydney's School Synagogue, prayers were repeated as usual, but with restrictions.

Authorities in Australia have allowed synagogues to return to synagogues.

To this day, almost no prayers have been held, only in a few places, but the Jewish communities are breathing a sigh of relief, after the synagogues were officially allowed to open, according to the rules of social distance, and only for those vaccinated with a second vaccine.

A number of synagogues in Sydney have already opened their synagogues, including Rabbi Chaim Levy's Chabad House, "Sydney School", Rabbi Chaim Levy told the website "In the Haredi Rooms" that it feels like leaving a shelter after such a long time. It was very, very hard not to hold prayers on the holy days, atonement, blowing the shofar, remember, the most important things for Judaism we did not have.

In fact for almost two years now there has been no ordinary life.

"Small children did not really feel the atmosphere of the holidays and we hope that now the situation will return as before the Corona."

Rabbi Levi added: "We thank the local government and the federal government for being able to put synagogues at the top of their priorities, and in the first phase, along with the opening of the malls, bars and clubs will also open synagogues. We are happy that they understand the importance of the matter."

Along with the permit to open the synagogues, a number of restrictions still apply, such as a valid green sign, a vaccination obligation, scanning a code at every entrance to the synagogue, masks aged 12 and over, two meters between each worshiper, and a ban on singing in the synagogue.
