Today, JCA is at the heart of our local Jewish community in NSW and the ACT. Our role, as the primary fundraiser for our member organisations and a central point for strategic planning, is to serve the best interests of our community. Thanks to your support, we have created something truly remarkable together – a vibrant community network that cares for one another in difficult times and builds a brighter future for generations to come.

 

JCA LAUNCHES NEW IN-DEPTH ANALYSIS OF NSW JEWISH COMMUNITY

In this special JCA report demographer, Dr David Graham, has synthesised data from JCA’s Gen 17 Report with data from the 2016 Australian Census. The result is an analysis that is unparalleled in the breadth and depth of information it provides about the Jewish community. The combination of sources shines a bright empirical light on the Jewish community enabling planners and other interested groups to better understand the key issues, trends, and challenges that are shaping the NSW Jewish population.

The report is now available to read or download online. You can also watch a recording of the launch webinar.

JCA COMMISSIONS COMMUNITY EDUCATION SURVEY

JCA has engaged Nous Group, an independent Australian-owned management consultancy, to work with the community and our education providers to get an in-depth understanding of what is important to parents about their children’s education. The study – including a community-wide survey and collaborative consultation with Jewish day schools and other community education providers – will help our community shape the future of education of Jewish children, whether they are in Jewish day schools, government schools or other independent schools.
