Summary

Today, the Adelaide Jewish Museum can be referred to as a virtual museum. Building up a collection of objects is a slow process. The intention is to use the website as a forum for documenting interesting objects of Judaica within the community, as well as documents and general objects relating to the lives of the Adelaide Jewish community. However the major focus is the collection of human stories of the community, both of the gnereration of holocaust survivors and their children.

In effect, community collecting is a solution to the problem of museum collecting: the museum collection exists externally, with community responsibility for looking after and insuring their own objects. The community is invited to submit images of items, photographs and documents in their personal collection together with captions for inclusion on the site.
