About Us

Melbourne Hebrew Congregation (Hebrew: ק"ק שארית ישראל), affectionately referred to as ‘Toorak Shule’ or ‘MHC’, is the oldest Jewish congregation in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Formed in 1841, MHC was originally located on Burke Street in Melbourne CBD, before moving to its current location at 2/8 Toorak Road, South Yarra. 

For over 180 years, MHC has been a significant physical and spiritual hub for the Melbourne Jewish community and beyond. MHC hosts a myriad of events including regular religious services, life cycle events, special programs and more. 

Under the leadership of a devoted and vibrant Rabbi and Rebbetzin, along with a dynamic and youthful board, the MHC team is committed to maintaining a community centre that is relevant, inclusive, and welcoming to all. 

We welcome all Jews, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic background or level of observance.
