Organised by the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies, the objective of the event is to foster links between the various communities and enhance understanding of Jewish tradition.

It follows in the wake of numerous outreach Passover dinners held by the Board of Deputies, including with the education, trade union, NGO, academic and interfaith sectors.

Minister for Citizenship and Communities, and Minister for Aboriginal Affairs Affairs Victor Dominello will give the opening address, with Stepan Kerkyasharian AM, CEO and Chair of the NSW Community Relations Commission – which is supporting the event – in attendance.

Groups to be represented will include the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney, the Sikh Council of Australia, the Buddhist Council of NSW, the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia, the Australian Baha’i Community, the Hindu Council of Australia, the Baha’i community, the Chinese Australian Forum, the Australian Hellenic Council (NSW), the Council of Indian Australians, the Muslim Women’s Association, NSW Young Liberals, NSW Young Labor, the Youth Action Policy Association, the Sydney Alliance, Young UN Women, the Australian National Committee for UN Women, the Council of International Students Australia, various university students’ associations, NSW Young Lawyers and councillors from Woollahra, Willoughby, Warringah, Hunters Hill, Camden and Wollondilly Shire councils.

“The event will build on the vital bridge-building work which the Board of Deputies does on behalf of our community,” chief executive officer Vic Alhadeff said. “Engaging with key sectors is vital, and the added virtue of this event is that we will be doing so with the next generation of leaders, while introducing them to many important aspects of Jewish tradition.”

The event will be held at the University of NSW on March 20.
