Author(s) Alfred Fabian AbstractThe Jews of South Australia did not organize themselves into a proper religious body until the year 1848, when, for the first time, services on the High Holy Days were held under the auspices of the newly formed "Adelaide Hebrew Congregation." Prior to this year, however, services had been arranged occasionally, as we learn from contemporary sources. The Royal Almanac for 1846 states :That the descendants of Abraham have as yet no synagogue in the town, but a congregation is in the habit of assembling for worship according to the Jewish rites in the house of Mr. Burnett Nathan in Currie Street.
