Melbourne – RSJ

About Us

This is the first RSJ Moishe House in Australia!
We’re so excited to host unique and fun events for the young Russian Jewish community. We will host a variety of social and cultural events each month, some of which will be emphasised toward the Russian speaking Jewish community, so please join us for Shabbat dinners, Sunday Zumba fitness, BBQ’s, Jewish educational events, etc. Get a taste of how Russians party! If you have any ideas for events, let us know! Like our Facebook page, which is ‘Kangarusski Moishe House’, or email us at
Hope to see you soon!

WE ARE creating our Jewish future!

Moishe House Melbourne - RSJ wouldn’t exist without the support of people who believe in us and what we do. Once a year, we ask our community members to participate in giving back through the WE ARE Campaign. Beginning Oct 3rd - Nov 20th, every dollar that you donate will go directly into programming here at Moishe House Melbourne - RSJ! Thank you for supporting our house and making a difference in the future of Jewish life in Melbourne.
