Shalom & Welcome!
The Jewish Community Council of Victoria’s communal diary and directory provides a snapshot of the Victorian Jewish Community. It covers the gamut of Victorian Jewish life, literally from A to Z, locally and in its representation of Israel, and encapsulates and reflects the breadth and diversity of our community: religiously, culturally, and educationally, in sport, in welfare, in support networks and many other areas.
The Jewish Community Council of Victoria (JCCV) is the roof body of Victorian Jewry, Australia's largest and most vibrant Jewish community. It provides leadership and a voice for Victorian Jewry's 65,000 members. We speak on behalf of Victorian Jewry on all sorts of issues affecting their status, welfare and interests and represent our community to the wider Victorian community, the government, the media, police, NGO's, and other faiths.
This vital link needs to be not only maintained but enhanced. We seek to improve the communication between us and the Victorian Government, Government Instrumentalities, NGO's, Victoria Police, media and the wider Victorian community including many of its diverse religious and cultural groups. We hold briefing sessions, provide valuable information about our community as well as being the first point of reference for information about the Jewish Community. We also provide a very valuable bridge between many of our own community organisations.
The JCCV is at the forefront of our community's development and wellbeing in the areas of social justice, multicultural and interfaith activities, education, security, leadership development, child protection, tackling anti-semitism and racism and a plethora of other activities. Together with our website, on-line communal calendar and Facebook page, this diary and directory provide an insight into the activities of the JCCV and our community. As you browse through it, you can see what the Victorian Jewish community has to offer and if you want to know more or want some general advice or assistance, you can contact the JCCV. I encourage you to use this directory as a daily information and working tool and to support our many sponsors and advertisers whose backing we acknowledge with gratitude.
