Adass Isreal synagogue

23 May 2023

Adass Israel Orthodox Synagogue, Glen Eira Avenue, Ripponlea. The congregation was formed by mostly Germans / Austrians in 1940, moving here in 1950, then commissioning Vienna-born Ernest Fooks to build this, completed 1965. Not the most exciting design, but nice brickwork house-shaped bit. Interior shot from Google maps, looks 60s, but might be the 1997 extension. A follower in my Instagram pointed out that the detail in the brickwork is multiple menorah’s!
