Your tour will begin with visits to a couple of the city's oldest synagogues to learn about early Jewish migration to Australia and the freedom of religion, which has always been enjoyed in the country. Exclusive access is provided through your guide's connections within the community and provides a fascinating look into the Jewish culture that most travelers won't have access to.
A visit to the Arts precinct will teach you how the many Jewish patrons have been instrumental in shaping the city's cultural scene. This can especially be seen in places like South Yarra and Toorak which are the oldest and original Jewish-Anglo communities. Several Jewish Schools will pop up as you journey south towards Caulfield and Balaclava.
At Balaclava Road and Carlisle Street, where Jewish life is the cultural dominant force, you will have some time to visit kosher bakeries and delis for a chance to chat with the locals. Once in St. Kilda the influence of Ashkenazi migration can be found in the many Eastern-European cake shops that line the seaside-shopping strip.
The final stop of your exploration will be at the Jewish Museum of Australia to meet volunteers from the community, providing perfect insight into this dynamic culture.
