The Australian Jewish Community Survey, known as Gen17, was a nationwide study conducted by JCA and the Australian Centre for Jewish Civilisation (ACJC) at Monash University. With responses from 8,621 people, it gathered detailed information about Australia’s Jewish community including Jewish identity, community engagement, intermarriage, charitable giving, connection to Israel, and experience of antisemitism.


This Preliminary Findings Report provides insights into selected key findings. It has been designed to demonstrate the potential breadth and value of Gen17 data to the many organisations and Jewish service providers operating in the community. It provides a rare, empirical glimpse into the diversity of Australian Jewish identity and Jewish life and of undercurrents of change within it showing that Jewish identity is keenly felt and that Jewish life is expressed in myriad ways.
