Overview of your Melbourne tour:

As Australia's most experienced Jewish tour guide, I invite you to join me for a half-day journey through Jewish Melbourne. First to St Kilda, exploring the historic St Kilda Hebrew Congregation, a symbol of Melbourne's early Jewish presence (if unavailable we will visit another historic synagogue). Then, we'll visit the Jewish Museum of Australia in St Kilda, a place where Jewish history and contributions come to life. Our tour will take us to Caulfield North, the heart of contemporary Jewish Melbourne, with its community centers, schools, and synagogues showcasing a vibrant and united community. We'll savor traditional Jewish cuisine at Glick's Bagels and pay our respects at the Jewish Holocaust Centre in Elsternwick. Throughout the tour, I'll share personal stories and historical insights, offering you a deep and engaging glimpse into the past and present of Jewish Melbourne. Join me for this enriching half-day tour to discover the remarkable history and enduring spirit of this community.
