Over 550 people watched the Australian premiere of the inspiring Israeli movie ’77:78 On the Map’ at Hoyts Entertainment Quarter and Roseville Cinema…a highlight event of ZDVO’s fundraising drive. Were you there? A J-Wire photo gallery.

ZDVO’s annual fundraising week opened in Sydney with host of events throughout the community.

Guest speakers Nati Hakshur and Major Ofir Anidgar shared their inspiring stories at various synagogues.

Other events in Sydney included visits to Jewish day schools, cooking with BJE students at Our Big Kitchen, as well as visits to the Opera House, Taronga Park Zoo and other Sydney attractions.

Melbourne is waiting for the Israeli veterans to arrive for their upcoming ZDVO week.

The Zahal Disabled Veterans Organisation Beit Halochem Australia (ZDVO BHA) is a national organisation currently consisting of operations in NSW and Victoria.

The aim of the organisation is to raise awareness and funds for the 50,000 Israeli injured soldiers and victims of terror who are members of the four Beit Halochem rehabilitation centres located in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Be’er Sheva and Haifa.

Funds raised in Australia are transferred to Beit Halochem and are used for rehabilitation and to improve the quality of life of its members. Donations go towards items such as physiotherapy, OT, sports programs, cultural activities and educational scholarships as well as equipment such as modified wheelchairs and pilates apparatus.

Due to the ongoing random terrorist attacks and the aftermath of Operation Protective Edge in 2014, sadly Beit Halochem is constantly receiving new members.
