ABOUT

The New Zealand Jewish Council is the representative body of Jewish communities in New Zealand. There are congregations in Auckland, Waikato, Wellington, Nelson, Christchurch and Dunedin. There are approximately 10,000 Jews in New Zealand with the largest population in Auckland followed by Wellington.

 

Jewish life in New Zealand can be traced to its early settlement period with the first ceremonies and services taking place in the 1840s. Although a small minority, Jews have contributed to the development of the country in many ways.
