A Home of Wisdom

Or Chadash is a small yet vibrant Modern Orthodox Community in the heart of Bondi. We are proud to represent the best of Modern Orthodoxy - a home that truly synthesises the modern world with the traditions of Jewish faith, law and culture.

Or Chadash is a place for community, scholarship, and growth.

We are a home of wisdom.

"I have a liking for pioneers, for experimenters, for people who do not follow the crowd. I have always admired the first ones, the early ones, the beginners, the originators. Even in my derashot I prefer to speak about those who defied public opinion, disregarded mockery and ridicule, and blazed new trails leading man to God" - Rabbi J B Soloveitchik


A New Page of Talmud is an exciting project that takes the concept of the Talmud as a repository of primary, secondary and tertiary intergenerational thinking, creating new ways to explore themes and ideas. The project is based on the weekly Parasha, consisting of A New Page of Talmud source sheet and short companion article.

Pre-registration to attend shul remains essential and all Covid-safe rules remain in place. To streamline our entry protocol and demonstrate to the authorities (if necessary) compliance with all relevant rules, please email a copy of your COVID-19 vaccination certificate to You can do this at any time. If you do not wish to email your certificate, you can email us and we will arrange an alternative way to sight your certificate. We do not plan to keep copies of certificates; vaccination status will be recorded on a shul register, and certificates immediately deleted. You can also choose to show your certificate to the person on the door to be admitted.

Space at the BJE is limited. We continue to use outside undercover seating. If you are planning to attend any Shabbat services, please email your COVID-19 vaccination certificate as above and complete the registration form by Friday at 9am.
