The first-ever NSW Jewish Board of Deputies plenum to be held at Southern Sydney Synagogue will be held there next month in honour of the synagogue’s 70th anniversary.
The decision to hold the meeting there is in accord with the Board’s policy of rotating the venues of its monthly plenums among its constituent organisations.

Recent meetings have been held at Cremorne and Newtown synagogues, and Chatswood’s North Shore Temple Emanuel will host one later this year.

To be held on Tuesday evening, February 19, the plenum will feature a panel of members of the community who participated in the recent Board/HonestReporting advocacy mission to Israel comprising of Dr George Foster, a former president of the synagogue; Board Shoah Remembrance Committee chairman Michael Jaku and Marilyn Immerman, Head Teacher of Jewish Studies at Moriah College.

Located in Allawah 10 minutes’ drive from Sydney Airport, Southern Sydney Synagogue was founded in 1943; its founding president was Nathan Haneman. It comprises about 85 members encompassing the St George & Sutherland Shire areas and other neighbouring suburbs.

Board of Deputies chief executive officer Vic Alhadeff urged members of the community to attend. “The 70th anniversary of any communal organisation is an occasion of note,” he said. “When that organisation is a synagogue which has survived and flourished away from the main centres of the community, we should be there in numbers to recognise it and to honour it.”

The meeting will begin at 7.30pm.
