The Shtiebel is a social enterprise created in response to the changing needs of our community. Wherever possible, we lean on the skills and knowledge of volunteers to minimise our operational costs and maximise our communal impact.
There are multiple opportunities to support shtiebel, through financial and in-kind contributions to ensure our future and impact.
The Shtiebel Benevolent Society
The Shtiebel Benevolent Society was founded in 2022 in response to the changing needs of Melbourne’s Jewish community. Through its unique partnership with Shtiebel Ltd, the Shtiebel Benevolent Society is committed to ensuring that the entire community has access to pastoral support and relief services regardless of their personal circumstance or religious affiliation.
The Shtiebel Library Fund
The Shtiebel was founded to meet the changing needs of Melbourne’s Jewish community, and challenge the historical assumptions about what it means to be engaged with and involved in Jewish life. At shtiebel, we see Judaism as an evolving tradition sustained by study and enriched by lived experience. Through our library, we committed to offering a new model of community that is inclusive, innovative, and accessible to all.
remember a loved one
For many, remembering the past is a powerful way of connecting with one’s Jewish self.
In Jewish tradition, it is customary to remember those who we have loved and lost through the recitation of the Mourner’s Pray on the anniversary of their passing, known as a yahrzeit.
At shtiebel, we say the mourner’s pray as a community to support those remembering loved ones during our Kabbalat Shabbat services each Friday evening.
At times of remembrance, many people choose to make a donation in honour of the memory of their loved one. If this practice resonates with you, then we invite you to complete the form below.
