Four senior journalists who toured Israel as guests of the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies will report on their impressions at a public meeting next week.

The journalists are: Sydney Morning Herald Opinion Page Editor Joel Gibson, Daily Telegraph Director of News John Rolfe, SBS Senior Correspondent Brian Thomson and Sky News Business Channel Manager Kylie Merritt.
They recently spent five days on an intensive visit to Israel meeting with key identities in the security, political and security arenas as participants on the Board of Deputies’ Journalists Mission.
The annual report-back of journalists who have participated on the Board of Deputies mission has traditionally been included as a feature of the Board’s February plenum; however, in light of the overwhelming response by members of the community to last year’s event, which saw guests lining the walls, it has been decided to hold a stand-alone event this year at a larger venue which will accommodate more guests and allow greater participation from the floor.
Board of Deputies chief executive officer Vic Alhadeff urged members of the community to attend. “This is a rare opportunity for members of the community not only to hear what these senior journalists have to say about their findings and impressions, but also to engage with them in a meaningful way,” he said.
The meeting will be held in the Saunders Hall, Central Synagogue, on Thursday February 2 at 7.30pm.
The Journalists Mission is supported by the JCA Haberman Kulawicz Fund, and the journalists were accompanied by four colleagues who travelled as guests of AIJAC.
