The Centre hosts international conferences, sometimes in association with other universities. Since 2003 the Centre has jointly organised a series of "Port Jews" conferences with the Parkes Institute for the Study of Jewish/Non-Jewish Relations, University of Southampton.

The Centre fr om time to time mounts exhibitions of relevance to the South African Jewish Experience. In this regard the Centre collaborates closely with the South African Jewish Museum, a world-class heritage centre in the Company Gardens.
