This is a small museum which introduces the visitor to Jewish history, life and observance through educative displays. I found some most unusual items on view, some of which I had not seen elsewhere. And, artefacts covered Jewish origins as far flung as China, India and Yemen. There is space devoted to Jewish immigrants to Victoria and their contribution to society. Tags on which visitors write their family place of origin and why they came to Australia are both touching and are interesting to read. This Museum hosts groups of school children and adults and conducts temporary exhibitions and events. There are volunteer guides who are happy to escort visitors or answer questions. Chatting with some of them was as rewarding as the exhibits themselves. The museum is easy to reach from Melbourne CBD by trams 3 or 67, stop 32 and is near St Kilda Beach.
