Building the Hakoah of the future

Building the Hakoah of the future

Welcome to Hakoah

It's not only about the buildings.

It's a place to do what you love, together.

It's much easier to draw the community to programs, when they're already there.

We're building a place where our whole community can come to do the things they love - when they want and what they want.

Because life’s better together.

3km East of Sydney CBD. A seven minute walk from Edgecliff Station with parking for 270 cars & 100 bikes as well as fully accessible lifts and pathways.

Hakoah will welcome and embrace people from all parts of the Jewish community and the broader community. Individuals and groups from across the community will be able to attend programs, use the facilities and rent spaces for their own needs and activities.

Hakoah will be a welcoming, vibrant hub that nourishes mind, body, and soul, where everyone is valued, and uniqueness is celebrated. People of all ages and stages will feel a sense of connection, and Hakoah will quickly become a home away from home.

It is our mission to ensure that people who face financial barriers or who have different abilities have the opportunity to participate and belong. The Hakoah Cares initiative will help to ensure that children, families, seniors, and people with adapted needs can all fully engage in the dynamic programs at Hakoah.

#inclusion #nobarriers #hakoahclub

Hakoah Director Ali Linz is passionate about our community. She knows the importance of having a place for us to come together to regularly share joyful experiences. We can't wait for people from across our community to feel the special sense of connection that comes from being together.

Why is Hakoah important? Hakoah supporters Kathy Shand and Barry Smorgon explain just some of the many reasons why Hakoah will make a transformative difference to our community. ...


Environmental consciousness and environmental sensitivity has informed the redevelopment at every stage. The project is being designed and delivered to a 5-star Greenstar rating under the Green Building Council Guidelines. Multiple sustainability initiatives have been introduced, including:

* Trees - New planting following removal of pest/weed species, means the number of trees on site increases as does the number of native tree species. 🌳

* Habitat - the boundary environmental zones provide suitable new habitat for native mammal species and birds in the area. 🐦

* Transport and access - the site is accessible by public transport, rail and bus, and is pedestrian and cyclist friendly with undercover parking for over 100 bicycles provided. 🚌

* Lighting - Low energy lighting is employed throughout the campus, including sports lighting. The Club building roof is anticipated to become an environmental node, combining raised solar panels as shade structures, and an extensive roof garden. 💡

* Building and energy - the 5-star Greenstar rating ensures buildings are energy efficient and relatively simple to cool and heat, relying primarily on passive heating and cooling.

Thoughts on bringing it back?

Igor is looking forward to having a space to utilise his creative skills and work collaboratively with others.

He will have a range of spaces to do this in at the new Hakoah...

What are you looking forward to?

WINNER WINNER SCHNITZEL DINNER! Mazeltov to our final winner Chaim Greenwald on winning a $500 visa gift card!

Chaim used to travel from Melbourne for the famous schnitzels and can’t wait to taste all the new delicious delights Hakoah will have to offer, this time with his kids.

Inclusion is something we take very seriously and want everyone to feel included, accepted and able to join in.
