Illuminate Jewish Life


At the Jewish Museum of Australia, we illuminate Jewish life.

At the intersection of art and Jewish culture, our Museum is a place for all people to share in the Australian Jewish experience.

We’re proud of our myriad education programs, which support a multicultural society. Thousands of students from government, Catholic and independent schools visit us each year to learn about Jewish culture and contributions to this country, and our professional development workshops assist educators in the teaching of Judaism.

Students from Jewish day schools are engaged through activities such as our Roots program delivered with the Australian Jewish Genealogical Society—the outcomes of which are showcased in our Evolving Identities exhibit.

We create pioneering projects, including our Museums Together bridge building program with the Islamic Museum of Australia, King David School and Sirius College, and Augmented Reality Education Program with Sandpit.

Education at the Museum is not limited to schools; our short courses allow adult learners to discover more about themselves, their culture and world.

We do all this because we believe museums change lives. Maintaining identity, improving social cohesion, building connections and fostering a community that is open to and accepting of difference underscores everything we do.

But to achieve this, we need you. Facing the state of emergency we all find ourselves in, we’re pivoting to ensure learners big and small can access our important education programs.

Give now and keep us—and the minds of those we touch—shining bright.
