Facilities

We have a modern site with excellent facilities. Our large comfortable air-conditioned sanctuary can be extended into the rear hall to accomodate the entire community for the High Holy Days. At other times the hall, with adjacent (non-meat) kitchen, is available for receptions, events, drama, dancing, and may be hired.
Our smaller hall and adjacent library also accommodates the ‘Leo Baeck Arts Centre’, which hosts several exhibitions annually. There is a small kitchenette, classrooms and offices, as well as a ‘Room of Prayer’ (our smaller sanctuary).

The buildings are well equipped with toilets and baby change facilities, and are fully accessible for wheelchair users.

We have a lovely central courtyard framed by garden – a special setting for a wedding or other significant event. Our courtyard barbecue is also used for community events.

In accordance with the Jewish principle of ‘Tikkun Olam’ (repairing the world), we try to be as environmentally responsible as possible, and purchase accredited renewably generated power.  In June 2008 we installed 30,000 litres of water tanks to flush all toilets and to water our gardens, thanks to a Federal Government grant.

LBC is about 8 km northeast of the Melbourne Central Business District.
