Progressive Congregation of the ACT Jewish Community
We are Canberra’s Progressive Jewish congregation – a warm and dynamic community located within the ACT Jewish Community National Jewish Memorial Centre.
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 serving a wide demographic, from retirees, to families with older and younger children, young professionals and students.
