Programs for Students

 

We develop and present a range of innovative educational experiences for primary and secondary school students, both Jewish and non-Jewish, that respond to the Victorian Curriculum and Jewish Studies curricula from Prep to Year 12. Our education programs cover issues of identity, community, migration, multiculturalism and world religions – and reinforce Victoria’s stated commitment to raising young people who are able to engage positively in our multicultural society.

Whilst our doors have been closed, we continue to illuminate Jewish life and ensure access to our important education programs via Virtual Incursions, Timeline AR and a range of freely accessible resources.
We look forward to welcoming you back to our Museum in a COVID-safe way from early 2021 and suggest allocating at least two hours for your visit. Pre-booking is essential; select from the following packages or contact us to discuss your requirements.
