Jewish Museum of Australia


Jewish Museum of Australia

The Jewish Museum of Australia was established in 1982 and for thirteen years was located in the synagogue of the Melbourne Hebrew Congregation, South Yarra.

In that time, the Jewish Museum presented over forty wide-ranging exhibitions, several of which travelled nationally. The Museum attracted significant communal support and won several prestigious industry awards.

In 1992 the Jewish Museum of Australia purchased a building in Alma Road, St Kilda opposite one of Melbourne's most beautiful synagogues, the St Kilda Hebrew Congregation, and close to Temple Beth Israel. On 20 August 1995 the Jewish Museum of Australia, Gandel Centre of Judaica was officially opened by the then Governor General, The Hon Bill Hayden.

The Jewish Museum of Australia is a community museum, which aims to explore and share the Jewish experience in Australia and benefit Australia's diverse society.

The Jewish Museum of Australia is committed to being
a respected and innovative cultural centre, recognised nationally for its excellence in exhibitions, education programs and collection management.
