It was great to have everyone back at Council in person dancing, singing and having a wonderful time at our Greatest Musical Concert. Spirits were lifted .... "What a wonderful way to spend a rainy afternoon" was overheard. See photos and a snippet of video of the event, below.
NAJEX ANZAC DAY COMMEMORATION will be held at NCJWA Council House for the first time. I have been honoured to have been invited to talk about the enormous contribution that NCJWA members made to the war effort during WWII. I would like to extend an invitation to our members to join me at this event. Please RSVP as directed on the NAJEX flyer below.
A private event was held at our premises to raise funds for the flood ravaged Northern Rivers Community which we were very happy to support.
Cuddle Bundles are helping refugees and also those affected by the floods.
With the situation escalating in Ukraine we are reminded of the importance of safeguarding our freedoms at this time as we prepare for Pesach.

The Greatest Musical Concert, hosted on 6 March 2022, featured Chutney, a Klezmer Fusion Band. Their set was a spicy, high-energy mix of original tunes and modern twists on klezmer classics, with a dollop of tango, Dixieland and big band swing thrown in for good measure.
The audience was also treated to a performance by the Sydney Jewish Choral Society. Formed in 1986, the Sydney Jewish Choral Society is Sydney's premier Jewish mixed community choir. Using music as a bridge between and within the Jewish and wider communities, the choir aims to build goodwill and spread messages of harmony and tolerance.
