A Tour of Jewish Carlton

ו' אלול ה' אלפים תשס"ז


Subject to a sufficient level of interest, I am planning to organise a tour of Jewish Carlton on Sunday, 28 October 2007.

The tour will be by bus, commencing at approximately 10am and concluding by early to mid-afternoon.

Although some of the buildings no longer exist, it is hoped either to visit or pass by the following places of interest:

  • Historical plaques at the Melbourne Chevra Kadisha in Inkerman Street, and which were initially located in Carlton;
  • Beth David Shule;
  • Chevra Kadisha;
  • Drummond Street row of terrace houses, owned by Woolf Davis, and which included a Mikvah, a Succah and a Shule;
  • Chevra Torah Shule and Talmud Torah of Rabbi Abraham Eber Hirschowitz in Madeline (Swanston) Street;
  • Chassidic Shtiebel;
  • Hascolah Talmud Torah;
  • Carlton Shule;
  • Machzike Hadath Minyan;
  • Mikvah at the Melbourne City Baths;
  • Jewish commercial district;
  • Home of Rabbi Joseph Lippman Gurewicz; and,
  • East Melbourne Shule.


The tour will be conducted by Rabbi Shimon Opman and valuable insights and reminiscences will be provided by Mr David Stone.

The cost will be approximately $40 per person, and which will include a light lunch.

Any men who wish to participate ought register their interest with me by no later than Sunday, 2 September.

I have taken a tour similar to this one, led by a representative of the Jewish Museum. It was fascinating and I can recommend a tour such as this led by David Havin
