Jewish community survey seeks Tas responses

Posted: 10 March 2017

A comprehensive survey of the Australian Jewish community that’s only conducted once every 10 years is particularly asking for Tasmanian Jews to take part.

The Gen17 survey is being jointly conducted by the JCA communal organisation in Sydney and the Australian Centre for Jewish Civilisation at Monash University in Melbourne.

The importance of the Gen17 survey is that data from it will be used by a wide array of Jewish organisations to plan for the future of Jewish life in Australia.

The organisers would like as many responses as possible from Tasmania and other smaller communities so that their particular viewpoints and interests can be assessed alongside those of Jews in Melbourne and Sydney.

The online survey covers a broad selection of issues and topics but no special knowledge is required. It takes about 40 minutes to complete. All responses are anonymous and will be handled confidentially.

You can get access to the Gen17 survey by going to this web page (but not from a mobile phone—some of the questions are too large to fit on a small screen).

If you know someone who might like to take part but doesn’t use the internet, please ask them to ring (03) 9903 5004.
