In a rare tribute, NSW Labor parliamentarians stood in a minute’s silence to mark the passing of NSW Jewish community leader, Mr Jeremy Spinak at State Parliament.

NSW Labor leader Michael Daley led the gesture during his leader’s report in the NSW Parliamentary Labor party caucus on November 20.

The honour is usually accorded to former parliamentarians when they pass away.

On Sunday, Mr Daley attended Mr Spinak’s funeral along with NSW Labor deputy leader Penny Sharpe, NSW Deputy Opposition leader in the NSW Legislative Council and NSW Parliamentary Friends of Israel deputy chair, Walt Secord, NSW Shadow Minister Sophie Cotsis and former NSW Labor leader Luke Foley.

Mr Secord said: “Many Labor parliamentarians were familiar with the work of Mr Spinak as president of the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies, but many also knew him from his time as a ministerial staffer with the then-State Treasurer. He was fondly remembered.”

Jeremy Spinak died last week at the age of 36. He was the president of The New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies from 2014 to just a few months ago.
