The New South Wales Women’s Division has reported highly successful functions featuring UK journalist Melanie Philips and  Russian émigré  Vladamir Milner.

Judy Stromer and Bev Michaelis report:

Vladamir Milner

We have had an awesome and awe inspiring week with the wonderful award-winning Britishjournalist Melanie Phillips complimented by the delightful and remarkable Vladimir Milner, a Russian youth who emigrated to Israel without his family and found the emotional support he received from the Jewish Agency to be invaluable.

Melanie Phillips held 900 women enthralled with her analysis and opinions of the situation in Britain and its relationship to Israel due to the threat of radical Islamism. Vladimir told the emotional and personal story of his Aliyah exemplifying the work of the UIA and the programs we support.

It was announced that Australian Federal Women’s Division have undertaken to fund the construction of an outdoor fitness centre for the disadvantaged boys at the Ben Yakir Village who all come from severely compromised backgrounds.  The plan is to take a Women’s Division mission to Israel next year to attend the official opening.

At the same time our support of the Nurit Absorption Centre and the KH Orphans project continues to be the main focus of our Campaign.  A visit to Nurit to see the results of our fundraising efforts is in itself a validation of the importance of our support.

We would like to thank everyone who attended the various events and we are sure you will agree that the speakers were excellent.

A spokesperson for UIA told J-Wire: “The speakers were so well received that the Q &A session at the Le Montage function went 35 minutes over its allotted time.”
