Community, Culture and Identity

This area of the collection brings together items that signify the evolving nature of Jewish identity, and how this is created and strengthened through Jewish institutions and diverse community groups.

Beyond the traditional Jewish narrative, there are many practices, values and organisations that make up Jewish secular society and culture. This area of the collection includes objects and paper-based materials that relate to political, artistic and commercial developments, movements and industries that have been important components of Jewish history, both within Australian and international contexts.
