Established in 1992 on the site of a historic Maccabean Hall, the Sydney Jewish Museum was established by a generation of Holocaust survivors who made Australia their home post-World War II. The vision was to create a space to share the history and customs of the Jewish faith, as well as documenting stories of the Holocaust and broader human rights issues.
Alongside the permanent exhibitions, it also regularly hosts film screenings, Holocaust survivor talks, book launches and discussions. The space also has a cafe and a resource centre and library, which houses an extensive collection of books, journals, videotapes and audiotapes for use in educational programs.
