Ladies tour of Jewish Carlton

ב' כסלו ה' אלפים תשס"ח

After the recent tour for men, I have been asked by a large number of ladies whether it would be possible to organise a similar tour for them.



If there is sufficient interest, David Stone and I are planning to conduct a second tour on Sunday, 9 December 2007 (during Chanukah).

The tour will be by bus, commencing at 10am and concluding by 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;

· The former Melbourne Hebrew Congregation in Bourke Street;

· The former East Melbourne Hebrew Congregation in Exhibition Street;

· 1 – 13 Drummond Street, owned by Woolf Davis, and which included a Mikvah, a Succah and a Shule;

· Melbourne City Baths;

· Chevra Torah of Rabbi Hirschowitz in Madeline (Swanston) Street;

· Jewish Commercial District – including Smorgon’s and Cohen’s Continental Cafe;

· Carlton United Hebrew Congregation;

· Woolf Davis Chevra (Stone’s Shule) and Chevra Kadisha;

· Melbourne General Cemetery, Jewish Section;

· Home of Rabbi Joseph Lippman Gurewicz;

· Machzikai Hadas (the Shtiebel);

· Hascolah Talmud Torah; and,

· East Melbourne Hebrew Congregation in Albert Street.

The cost will be $60 per person, which includes morning tea and lunch. Any ladies who wish to participate can register their interest by contacting Mina Grossman 9527 3942 mgrossman6@hotmail.com by no later than Tuesday, 20 November.
