New Caledonia Virtual Jewish History Tour

The Jewish community in New Caledonia is predominately located in Noumea. The Jewish community was established in 1987.

This relatively new community is composed of 50 Sephardic immigrants from France. Most of the Jews work in commercial businesses or in the state government. There is one synagogue in Noumea and one Jewish community center, Association Culturelle Israelite de Nouvelle Caledonie. Kosher food is imported from Australia.
