Shalom & Welcome!
The Jewish Community Council of Victoria (JCCV) is the roof body that supports, coordinates, and represents the Victorian Jewish Community. Representing 46% of Australia’s Jewish community, around 60,000 members, the Victorian Jewish community is Australia's largest and most vibrant Jewish community. It is through the JCCV that our many Victorian Jewish organisations come together to create a strong and cohesive community.
The JCCV is the voice of the Victorian Jewish community as we engage with government, media, police, faith communities, ethnic communities, other civil society organisations, Jewish communities outside Victoria, and the wider Victorian community.
We convene regular meetings of representatives of Victoria’s Jewish communal organisations, coordinate community initiatives, support our affiliated organisations, tackle antisemitism and other risks to community safety. We speak behalf of Victorian Jewry on issues affecting our status, welfare and interests. We serve as the first point of reference for information about the Victorian Jewish Community and provide a valuable bridge both to and between our many community organisations.
The JCCV also provides leadership on the Victorian Jewish community’s development and wellbeing in the areas of social justice, multicultural and interfaith activities, education, security, leadership development, child protection, tackling antisemitism and racism and a plethora of other areas. We represent the community within the Executive Council of Australian Jewry (ECAJ), the national roof body for the Jewish community, and serve as their delegate for Victoria for a number of funds and programs.
