Today Australia’s Jewish communities, like other Diaspora communities, face significant midterm risks to continuity. Jewish Australians have a proud record of achievement, both in their contribution to Australian society and in their ability to nurture a thriving and diverse communal life.

However, the current balance in resource allocation – the mix of institutions and programs – is unlikely to be the most effective in meeting emerging challenges.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate evidence bearing on future Jewish life in Australia, with particular reference to the Melbourne and Sydney communities.
