Zionism Victoria and the Jewish Community Council of Victoria have joined with the State Government of Victoria in hosting a cocktail party in honour of Israel’s 71st Independence Day.

Celebrating Israel

One of our most important events on the Jewish community calendar this event brings together leaders of the Victorian community with the Victorian Jewish community leaders and our state politicians at an event that affirms the importance of the strong bi-partisan support of our Government and Opposition for the State of Israel.

Zionism Victoria and the Jewish Community Council of Victoria are delighted that, as part of the evening, the State Government has announced that it will renew its financial support of this function for a further three years with a $30,000 funding grant.

The Melbourne Jewish and Zionist communities are privileged to enjoy a strong, positive relationship with the State Government of Victoria, and we have no doubt that this mutually beneficial relationship will continue into the future.

We greatly appreciate the assistance and understanding extended to our community by the Government which allows the vibrancy of multiculturalism to flourish. The Government’s generosity and support in hosting this event consistently over the past three years, and its announcement of continued support for the next three years, is very much appreciated by our organisations and by the Jewish community.

Among the guests were Israel’s ambassador to Australia Mark Sofer and newly elected MP for Macnamara Josh Burns as well as the JCCV president Jennifer Huppert and ZV president Sharene Hambur.
