Illuminate Jewish Life


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

We have been building, researching, caring for and sharing our collection for half a century. At over 20,000 items, it comprises the largest repository of the Australian Jewish experience in the world—a storehouse of memories to be preserved and presented.

But to do this, we need you. The state of emergency we find ourselves in has heralded the darkest of times for the arts, with spaces shuttered, events cancelled and education programs postponed.

Yet, though our doors are closed, our work must continue—inspiring hope and resilience through our collection and culture is more important than ever.

Your stories are our stories. Together we can tell them for many years to come. Give now and keep us—and the minds of those we touch—shining bright.
