Welcome to our new and improved website!
Founded in 1930 by a few visionaries in the Melbourne Jewish community, TBI is the original Progressive synagogue in Australia and New Zealand. It initiated the Progressive movement in this region of the globe, seeding congregations as far afield as Temple David in Perth and Temple Sinai in Wellington. TBI is one of the most active and spiritually creative forces in the Jewish community “Down Under”, running a plethora of programs for all age and interest groups. If TBI didn’t exist, someone would have to create it; because without this synagogue, Jewish life in Australia and New Zealand wouldn’t be as vibrant and compelling as it is today.
