125 years of fighting for frayhayt, glaykhayt un gerekhtikayt - freedom, equality & justice.


The Jewish Labour Bund in Melbourne was established in 1928 and continues to enact its ideological focus of frayhayt, glaykhkayt and gerekhtikayt (freedom, equality and justice) today. The Bund focuses on creating and nurturing a strong sense of secular Jewish identity through Yiddish language and culture in our community. Learn more about our history here.

The Bund runs a number of cultural and political events throughout the year and is involved in wider community forums and rallies such as the Bono Weiner Lecture, Yiddish music performances and events for Jewish yom toyvim (holidays). We also have an extensive collection of events, lectures and entertaining videos through our Bund Online page.

We are currently seeking materials to add to our new Bund and SKIF archive.

We wish you and your family a sweet new year. May we all take the time during yontef to reflect on our actions and consider what we will do to help others in the future, bringing freedom, justice and equality to all.
