The Brisbane Hebrew Congregation was founded in 1865 and this conveniently situated synagogue was consecrated in 1886, costing five thousand pounds. An unusual Byzantine style, it features twin turrets, cupolas and an arched entry porch--a memorial to war dead. The theme is repeated in the lofty interior, in the magnificent arch structure, and in the blending of arches and columns. Stained glass windows in Jewish motifs were installed at the centenary, in 1965.
