History of the Jews in New Caledonia

The history of the Jews in New Caledonia dates back to 1987, when the Jewish community was first established. The Jewish community numbers around 50 people, most of whom are located in Nouméa. In Nouméa there is a synagogue and a Jewish community center, the Association Culturelle Israelite de Nouvelle Caledonie. Almost all of the Jews in New Caledonia are Sephardi Jews[1] of French descent. Most work in business and state government.

Kosher food is imported from Australia.
