She told J-Wire: “My thoughts and prayers go to Jeremy Spinak’s family and the NSW Jewish community during this difficult time.

Jeremy was an outstanding community advocate and an amazing human being. He had a huge impact on everyone he met, including myself, and will be so sorely missed.

Jeremy was dedicated to forging strong links between our multicultural and religious communities and was a champion of an inclusive and harmonious State.

Whether mentoring young Jewish leaders, advocating for policy reforms or strengthening ties with the diplomatic community, Jeremy represented our State’s Jewry with pride and distinction.

Jeremy’s leadership was crucial to the NSW Government’s passage of landmark reforms to protect our State’s communities from the incitement of violence, replacing section 20D of the NSW Anti-Discrimination Act.”

Jeremy Spinak’s funeral will be held at The Emanuel Synagogue in Woollahra on Sunday at 9 am.
