Ballarat Synagogue: built on gold

Ballarat Synagogue is closely linked with the history and growth of the district. Gold, found in Ballarat in 1851, lured young men of the Jewish faith from around the world.

The synagogue is one of the most precious buildings associated with Australian Jewry. Its first president was Charles Dyte, a leading member of the community, who took a prominent part with Peter Lalor in obtaining justice for miners following the Eureka rebellion in 1854.

Dyte laid the foundation stone of the present synagogue in 1861.

Historic importance

The synagogue is classified by the National Trust of Australia and has been recorded as a historic building that must be retained.
