We are the focal point of Jewish life in Wellington providing social, educational and religious services to Jewish communities in the lower North Island and upper South Island.

We've been at the centre of Jewish life in Wellington since 1843. We are a small but diverse and vibrant community and over our 170 year history we have contributed many community leaders, statesmen, business leaders, philanthropists, artists, and academics to our city and our country.

More about us

The Centre is home to Wellington’s 170 year old Orthodox Jewish congregation and many Jewish institutions such as a kindergarten, youth groups, the Holocaust Centre of New Zealand, a Kosher Coop, and many social, cultural, and philanthropic groups and activities.

    We are very grateful that we had a proper shul to daven in on Shabbat, along with a lovely Kiddush during our holiday in New Zealand during August. My Aliyah was very appropriate as my father-in-law's yahrtzeit was that week.
