ACT Jewish Community Inc
WELCOME TO THE ACT jewish community's website
The National Jewish Memorial Centre is located at 31 National Circuit, Forrest.
Proudly representing Judaism in the Nation's Capital
At the heart of Canberra, tucked right beside Parliament House is the National Jewish Memorial Centre, the home of the ACT Jewish Community.
The ACT Jewish Community is the home of both the Orthodox and Progressive Congregations and the epicentre of cultural and educational programs for all Jews in Australia's Bush Capital.
Guided under the leadership of Rabbi Alon Meltzer and an elected board with our President, Yael Cass at the helm, our community is experiencing strong growth in both numbers and programs.
We would love to have you join our community
and get involved with what we have to offer.
Rabbi Meltzer is the ministering Rabbi to the Orthodox Congregation, and the educator and pastoral provider to the ACT Jewish Community

Until a change in 2015, the Burning Bush (right) was the symbol for the community and was inspired by the sculpture on the outside of the building, designed and fabricated by Izzy Kingsberg. For more information please click the symbol.
