Volunteer for the Sydney Jewish Writers Festival and save 50%

Volunteering at the Sydney Jewish Writers Festival gives people an opportunity to get up close and personal with the patrons and authors who make up the Festival. It is a way to be part of one of the most creative and thought-provoking experiences of the year with sessions on the complexity of Israel, raising teenagers, Westfield mogul Frank Lowy, Holocaust memorialisation, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign and much more.

“Volunteering is a great way to contribute to the smooth running of the Festival and meet others who love books and exploring ideas,” said SJWF Festival Director Michael Misrachi.

He explained that volunteers are needed to help the Festival run smoothly primarily with ticket sales and collection, but also assisting in the Festival bookshop and helping with meals and presenter care. In exchange for a 2-3 hour shift volunteers receive 50% off their Festival or Sunday passes.

Volunteer tickets must be booked by this Sunday August 23.

The SJWF is providing a volunteer briefing for all volunteers on Tuesday 25 August from 7:30pm – 8:30pm to familiarise volunteers with the new venue and procedures. For the first time the SJWF is being held at Waverley Library in Bondi Junction.

Guest speakers include Gideon Raff, the Emmy-award winning writer/director of Prisoners of War, Homeland and DIG, German-Nigerian author Jennifer Teege, who accidentally discovers her grandfather was a brutal Nazi commandant as well as a slew of Australian authors including Ramona Koval and Kate Forsyth.
