Hakoah Club President Steven Lowy has announced today that the construction of the new Hakoah at White City is starting immediately.

Late last week, a construction agreement was entered into with the construction company.

The opening of Hakoah at White City is planned for late 2023 / early 2024.

The new Hakoah at White City will be a momentous day for Sydney’s Jewish community. Not only will it be its hub, but it will also be welcoming to the broader local community.

It will provide much-needed facilities that include event spaces to support a wide range of social, educational, and cultural activities, including music, art, dance etc. State-of-the-art sporting facilities include a fitness centre, a floodlit all-weather football field, a learn-to-swim pool, a 5-lane lap pool and weatherproof multi-use courts for basketball, netball, futsal and more. The Club will also provide a range of café and dining experiences for members and guests. In addition, Sydney Maccabi Tennis Club will develop and operate nine new tennis courts, four mini courts for children, and a new clubhouse.

President Steven Lowy has expressed gratitude to the NSW and Commonwealth governments and to Woollahra Council for their support in sharing our vision for this project.

He acknowledged many people who have supported the project: “Thank you to the community for believing in this project so strongly. Over three thousand pre-opening memberships and 200 major donors show that the community eagerly embraces the vision of Hakoah at White City. We are particularly pleased to see many younger community members supporting the Club.”

Mr Lowy also expressed his appreciation for the professionalism and dedication of the Hakoah Board, its subcommittees, and the professional team. He added: “Our community owes this group of mainly lay leaders a massive debt of gratitude.

The community has enthusiastically embraced the vision of Hakoah at White City, and we feel more excited and determined than ever to deliver an asset that will be the shining jewel of our community for generations to come.”

Hakoah has a proud history of serving the community since it was established in 1938. The previous Club premises at Hall Street, Bondi, operated from 1975 to 2009 and was a much-loved institution in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs.
