Resources

The mandate of the JFVVI includes support of community development and communication about the activities of organizations concerned with the welfare of the Jewish Community. Victoria and Vancouver Island are home to a rich tapestry of religious, cultural and political Jewish expression. While neither the JFVVI nor all of the groups included on the JFVVI’s Community Resources page would agree with each other on everything that they espouse, we celebrate and share with you the healthy diversity that the Jewish Communities of Victoria and Vancouver Island have to offer.
