Collection

Over 20,000 objects and stories that tell the continuum of Jewish life and what it means to be Jewish in Australia

Our collection is made up of over 20,000 items that have been donated and acquired since the late 1970s. Encompassing historical and contemporary Judaica, visual art, photography, textiles, personal and ceremonial objects, documents and books, our collection is driven by a desire to share and preserve the Jewish history and culture.

Our collection primarily represents the unique social and cultural history of Australia’s Jewish communities, but it also includes items that signify the broader history and practices of Jewish people from across the world.
