2017 Sydney Law Service
Sydney’s Law Service marks the beginning of the legal year and has taken place at The Great Synagogue every year since the 1950s and will take place on Feb-08.
The Chief Justice of New South Wales, the Judiciary and other barristers and solicitors in their robes process into the synagogue; other dignitaries are present as well as members of the Jewish community.
Cantor Weinberger and The Great Synagogue Choir will sing and after a short service of prayers and readings, and an address from Rabbi Elton, the congregation will move to a reception for mixing and networking.
This is a chance for young lawyers in particular to meet the leaders of their profession, get tips and make connections.
This year The Great Synagogue is also presenting an exhibition showing the connections between the congregation and the wider community and the legal profession.
Lawyers have been among the leaders of Sydney Jewry, including the Synagogue’s current President, Justice Stephen Rothman. Both Rabbi Lawrence and Rabbi Apple studied Law at university, and Rabbi Elton formerly worked at the Judicial Appointments Commission in London.
Anyone wishing to attend this splendid event is very welcome. There is no charge but the Synagogue encourages registration via trybooking.
