Sydney Jewish Museum

The Sydney Jewish Museum is a museum in Sydney, Australia, which documents the Holocaust and the history of the Jewish people in Australia. The museum is located at 148 Darlinghurst Road, Darlinghurst, and is housed in the historic Maccabean Hall built to commemorate Jewish men and women from New South Wales who served in World War I. This New South Wales Jewish War Memorial, formally opened by Sir John Monash on Armistice Day 1923, has long been a hub of Jewish life in Sydney and was judged an appropriate site for the Sydney Jewish Museum.
