Welcome to Shira Hadasha!
Shira, the shul of song, is an inclusive Orthodox community in Melbourne that embraces a commitment to Jewish law (halakha) and social action (tikkun olam). For more information, click here.
Who Are We?
Shira is an inclusive Orthodox minyan in Melbourne where both women and men are active participants and song permeates the service.
At Shira, you’ll find a mehitza dividing the praying-space into two, but services are led from both its sides. Shira believes that Orthodox Judaism must strive for such inclusiveness, and it leads the way as the first such congregation in Australia.
Come visit us for an experience of prayer and song. If you need a place to stay or eat, don’t hesitate to ask.
See you soon!
