Over 800 people learned of the achievements of the 250 children enrolled at JEMs. “This is simply amazing!!!” said Tali Fisher, a JEMs parent.

The function was held at the Science Theatre at UNSW.

Lilach Weininger, a JEMs parent, added: “You should be so proud of the strong community of JEMs, my boys LOVE JEMs and love attending the classes.”

Children come each week to learn Tefillah, Jewish Studies and Hebrew reading and are assisted by a dedicated team of 100 teen volunteers from the local Jewish day schools who mentor them and motivate them with their Hebrew reading. The volunteers and children are led by a committed  team of teachers.

Each group performed on stage a section of their Tefillah, Jewish studies and Hebrew they learned throughout the year and at the culmination of their performance were presented with a certificate and a Jewish gift.

The teen volunteers were honoured with presenting the gifts and certificates recognising the time and effort but overall their physical achievements the children reached through their efforts.

Volunteers were  presented with a certificate and gift by the Hon. Gabrielle Upton MP, and Councillor  Leon Goltsman representing Waverley mayor Sally Bets,

The full dinner buffet was catered by Our Big Kitchen and our thanks go out to Greg Fisher & Rabbi Dovid & Laya Slavin for their year round support with many JEMs activities.

A special thank you video to Kesser Torah College was shown on the evening thanking them for their year round support and broad vision in enabling JEMs to operate out of their beautiful campus. The support from KTC is truly incredible said Rabbi Yossi Shuchat, director of JEMs.
