Jewish tradition says that when the earth was created and handed to human beings, we were directed to care for it for the future generations. As part of Emanuel Synagogue’s commitment to protecting our planet and reducing our carbon footprint, we have installed solar panels on the roof of our newest building. This is one step in our ongoing programme to become a green synagogue. In conjunction with our already established recycling programme and other mindful actions, we are doing what we can to care for our earth and each other.

Prana Energy designed and installed the turn-key 34.2 kWp PV System for Emanuel Synagogue using Longi Solar Panels & SolarEdge inverters. Installation of solar panels has significantly reduced Emanuel Synagogue’s environmental footprint.

Emanuel Synagogue considers the project to be successful. It was able to achieve

both environmental and economic targets set at the beginning of the project. Our

goal was to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the area.

The project was supported by Waverley, Woollahra and Randwick Councils as part of

 Solar my Club program and this collaboration was proven to be a success. Emanuel

Synagogue utilised the expertise of the Solar my Club specialists in running solar

feasibility assessment, site visits, tender evaluation and financial modelling.

We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which we gather, the Gadigal Clan of the Eora Nation, and accept the invitation in the Uluru Statement of the Heart to walk with the First Nations of this land in a movement of the Australian people for a better future.


This current proposal seeks to further adapt and enhance the Heritage Sanctuary to facilitate the current and future needs of the Synagogue, including continued growth, and to provide improved amenity and functionality while elevating the spiritual quality of the sanctuary.
