B’nai B’rith is the backbone of Jewish life in Victoria. It exists to fill the gaps in the Jewish and wider community.

A donation to B’nai B’rith supports all the work that we do to strengthen the Jewish community and allow the Jewish community to support those when most in need.

15 projects that support those in need, foster understanding and continued learning, celebrate our community’s achievements and talents, support Israel and instil a legacy of innovation for community capacity building, impacting directly over one thousand community members and countless others through fundraising efforts.
