Cremorne Synagogue Secures Funding to Replace Fixed Seating
Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore)
—Speaker, I congratulate the Cremorne Synagogue for their successful application to secure funds through the Community Building Partnership program 2021. The funding will assist the club in the replacement of dated fixed seating. Cremorne Synagogue has been a part of the North Shore community since 1959. It is an important place for people to come together and participate in their energy, community, and chevra. The Synagogue is an established orthodox shul with long-lasting traditions while also offering one of Sydney's most vibrant modern Jewish communities. The Synagogue is continuously growing, and the funding will help replace badly worn, discoloured, and uncomfortable fixed wooden seating with brand new upholstered benches in all sections of the Synagogue to meet the demands of the growing community. Congratulations again to Co-Presidents Harold Marshbaum and Garry Hyman, Rabbi Chaim Koncepolski, and the rest of the Cremorne Synagogue community for the work and advocacy that went into securing this well‑deserved funding.
