Shalom & Welcome!

For over 80 years the JCCV has been the peak body of Victorian Jewry, Australia’s largest Jewish community. With 52 major communal organisations as its affiliates, the JCCV represents the mosaic of Jewish religious, political, cultural, welfare, educational and social associations serving the Jewish community in Victoria.

The Victorian and Federal Governments, their agencies and Victoria Police, the media and ethnic and religious groups have long recognised the JCCV as the representative body of the Victorian Jewish community, speaking on its behalf on all matters affecting its welfare, safety and interests. As such, the JCCV provides leadership and a voice for Victorian Jewry’s 52,000 members to the wider Victorian community. Our constituent organisations nominate members of the Council which meets regularly in plenary session. The JCCV Executive meets monthly. Through consultation, advocacy and working with government, other faith and ethnic communities, the media, police, service providers and the general public, the JCCV seeks to achieve the following goals:
