A little about the ACTJC
The ACT Jewish Community was constituted in 1951 and the National Jewish Memorial Centre was opened in 1971 with generous financial assistance from interstate individuals and organisations and the continuing assistance of the NSW Jewish Communal Appeal.
The community is run by an elected Board of Management comprising Executive and Ordinary Members. It was incorporated in 1953 and currently operates under the ACT Associations Incorporation Act 1991 and is a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC).  
The ACT Jewish Community welcomes all Jewish people to Canberra and encourages you to join our community and enjoy a diverse range of religious, educational, cultural and social activities.  We are home to Orthodox and Progressive congregations.
The community currently has around 200 membership units and hosts a number of groups interested in social activities, Jewish history, Jewish films, music, books and cooking. There are also specific activities for men and women. We have a particular focus on youth education provided by our professional staff that caters to tots, tweens, teens and youth.  We also offer a number of adult education programs delivered by our Rabbi. All education programs are organised on a semester basis.
We are located in the centre of Canberra, adjacent to the Parliament triangle. Our community was founded in the 1950s.The National Jewish Memorial Centre was opened in 1971.
We are home to an Orthodox and a Progressive Congregation each of which holds weekly services. Please check our calendar for times and dates by clicking here.
We also partner with a number of peak national Jewish organisations including the Executive Council of Australian Jewry, National Council of Jewish Women's Association, the Zionist Federation of Australia and the Federal Association of Australian Jewish Ex-Service Men and Women.  We are a founding member of the NSW Jewish Communal Appeal (JCA). We are supported by JewishCare NSW in providing non-medical health support in the areas of Children and Family, Mental Health, Disability, Aged Care and Holocaust survivors.
